The payoff – for what you’re putting in – can be extraordinary. But it’s also hard to do. More than a few social agencies have lamented how often they’re asked to “write a viral post.” It can be done.

You’re probably heard that Facebook reach is down. And it’s true, to a degree.
The latest salvo of updates Facebook made to its ranking algorithms certainly had an effect on more than a few industries. And there are a few more reasons, too.
But, even if reach was improving, you’d still have work to do. More organic reach is a good thing. You always want more.
Because the more organic reach you have, the more you’re read, the more you’re known, and the more you’re bought from. And that’s why we’re all on Facebook, ultimately. It’s the reason we do anything in business. To sell. To make a profit.
