I’ve been digging around a fair bit on this issue this afternoon and after a considerable time, finally found the answer. According to Facebook:
“Promoted posts are a simple way to reach more of the people who like your Page and their friends. Visit your Page to try promoting a post. Promoted posts are available to Pages with more than 400 likes. “
Being that my Page has only 256 likes, it does not yet qualify for promoted posts.
Will have to get working on increasing the “likes”!!
