75% of brands now pay to promote their Facebook posts,1 and
that number will only continue to rise over the next few years.
Why pay for ads when Facebook is technically a “free” social
network? Well, you may have noticed that your organic posts
on Facebook are reaching fewer and fewer people every
day (and probably not getting the engagement they deserve,
either). That’s because organic reach for brand pages has hit an
all time low at around 2%, and organic reach per post continues
to decline rapidly every single day.1 Last year, SocialFlow saw a
42% drop in organic reach per post in just five months.
