Fan Pages Can Now Boost Posts
As the number of Fan Pages increases, so does the total number of unique status updates, which have surpassed 20,000 per month. To allow Pages an opportunity to gain News Feed visibility we've introduced post boosting for status updates. Boosting is a social media term for a paid system of enhancing the chance of fans seeing a post generated by a Page.
Here's how it works on GTribe:
(1) When you post a status update you'll now see a "Boost" button.
(2) Clicking the button… See More
allows you to select the audience you want to reach.
(3) The cost of boosting a post for 24 hours is $15 for Fan Pages.
(4) Only credit/debit cards are currently accepted for the boosting service.
(5) You can optionally store your credit card, so boosting selection is faster next time.
(6) After the boost ends you will receive a notification with a link to the enhanced analytics.
Boosted posts are identified as Promoted. Members who do not want to see boosted posts from a particular page can select “Hide Promoted Posts from FAN PAGE NAME” in the status update's drop-down menu.
