Hi all,

has anyone had much success with Facebook Boost? 

I've just done a paid boost for one of my FB posts (linking to my recent blog post), trying to get more traffic to my recently launched website:

Watching the stats with interest.  Two days in I'm seeing:

Reach: 937 

Post engagement: 9

Link clicks: 8

Landing page views: 4

Post reactions: 1

Having nothing to compare this to I don't know if I should be happy or disappointed with this.  Does anyone think it's worth paying for a boost?  Also, what is the difference between 'post engagement', 'link clicks', and 'landing page views'?  Feeling a bit reticent about Facebook marketing in general ...

Hi Hayley, post boost works best when the goal is to get engagement on the post itself rather than getting clicks to a website.  You will probably get a higher post reach as well if you don't include a link, but only use it to build engagement for your FB page, which in turn will ultimately lead to more traffic to your blog.

OK, got it, thanks Theo.

Thanks very much for setting up this forum, it's invaluable to be able to have these kinds of discussions as it can get kinda lonely in blog-land!
