It is just like Facebook Page Promoter, which was successful in getting more fans to pages. So, this also may be successful.

Facebook checked this Promote Post feature service as an experimented edition in New Zealand for last 2 months. So I think FB authority sure of its success. Thanks for comment :)

Hi Ahsan,
Without doubt this will be successful as the price is very affordable for such exposure. My only question is how come they always use New Zealand as a testing ground.

hey Ahsan. Today only i came across this feature when i was managing my FB Fan Page. its great that we can now even promote page posts too. But min. $5 for promotion price is a little too much dont you think so?

For Asian people it seems high rate. But whoever wants to promote his article through safe marketing policy will certainly choose FB promote feature option. Anyway thanks for your thought :)

With proper configuring i guess we can get a CPC rate to about 0.08-0.10$ which means for 5$ we can get atleast about 50 clicks. Considering the CTR of about 5% which is very high the number of people viewing our ad would be about 1000 people viewing the ad. So as per this it seems a bit costly service.
What do you suggest?

Hey Ahsan,

I heard that it was in prelaunch in New Zealand, testing the waters so to speak. So it’s finally arrived huh! Well, I’m not going to be paying $5 to get my info in front of just 600 people who may not be my target audience. Seems kind of silly to me but that’s just me.

Facebook ads would be a better way to go because you can then target the people you want to see your information.

Best of luck to those who participate. Thanks for sharing this though.

Hi Adrienne,

I agree with your points. Facebook authority said that the post should be viewed to 600 people for $5. They have not said either it is targeted audience or ordinary audience. So Facebook ads is the better choice.

Thanks for adding your thought :)

now the tests are over and the system has gone gone worldwide, very disappointed. i run facebook page with over 30K of followers, if I use the promote function, I get 10% more reach, all fine and good a few more likes of the post it self maybe not very significant amount al told, but if you look deeper I do not not gain new page likes actual I get a large increase i un-likes for my page. So why should i pay to prompt my post, I cant think of a reason, unless facebook actually promotes to Followers how actually like to see my post Ie. like the fist 10 to 15% who do for free anyway, why pay for more and shoot your self in the foot and loose followers of your page.

Making facebook a payable service may sound like a good idea for the organization behind the networking site but there’s some backfire to be expected for it. There would be a rapid decrease in subscribers that I’m not even sure would stop any sooner after establishing that system.
