Tips for Increasing Your Social Media Organic Reach

What Exactly IS Organic Reach?

The term “Organic Reach” is basically a marketing metric. This metric is based upon the number of ‘unique individuals’ that have viewed content. On social media, it could be a post, stories, video, etc.

Organic Reach excludes paid promotional ads, and the use of promotional tools that manipulate a higher visibility ratio.

Increasing Social Media Organic Reach Strategies Include:

Past Performance Review of Posts
Every few weeks (or every couple of months) take a look at the reporting data on each of your social media platforms to determine:

  • What direction your stats go during different time frame posts, content topic, etc.
  • Organic results vs Paid results.
  • Number of followers reached vs number of non-followers reached.
  • Audience demographics.
  • Engagement per post.

Create Exclusive Content for Each Platform
Mix it up and post content in varied formats on each different social media channel, to target diverse audiences on each.

Explore Micro Communities
Develop community around any topic you’re passionate about (vegetable gardening, interior decorating, stamp collecting, etc). When it’s thriving, introduce and cross-reference your audience to your Business social media account.

Venture into Video
Video consistently performs well on all of the social media channels, so post video once or more a week to see how much your reach improves.
