I experimented with the Promoted Posts twice now. The first one was for a contest I was in (Mari Smiths Great Timeline Cover Contest) the next one to share the results.
I did notice an increase of votes as a result. Even with a lot of interaction it only reached 30% of my fans.
The second Promotional Post was about 27% It has a greater reach, but only because Mari Smith posted on it. (Wow-can that make a difference)
For now, I am not going to use them anymore. The do not seem to be with the cost. I am now doing “The Great Experiment” on my business page where I am testing how far the reach goes by making more posts. This is day two and the results are much better already than the Promoted Posts.
