5 Ways to Engage with Facebook Pages as Your Facebook Page
It’s easy to get stuck behind the virtual administrative walls of your Facebook Page, always posting content but not getting out there and socializing with the rest of the News Feed. Engaging with other Pages helps expand your reach and draw in new fans. Plus, if you want to get Likes and comments on your Page, it’s a good habit to get out and do the same for other Pages.
Here are 5 ways you can engage with other Facebook Pages as your Facebook Page:
1. Like Pages as your Page
When a Page owner sees that a Page likes them rather than a typical Facebook user, they’re likely to be intrigued to check out what your Page is all about. Make a practice of liking other Pages as your Page rather than your personal profile.
To like another Facebook Page as your Page, go to the Page you want to Like. Click the three dots on the Page’s cover photo, and click Like as Your Page.
You’ll then get a menu listing all of the Pages you manage. Click the Page you’d like to use, then click Save. You’ll then receive a confirmation that the page has been added to your favorites.
2. Engage with posts as your Page
Add to discussion on other Pages’ popular posts with valuable comments as your Page name. Seeing the value you provide will encourage fans of that Page’s fans to check out your Page as well.
When you want to Like or comment on a Page’s posts, click the drop-down next to your profile photo. Select the Page you want to Like or comment with.
Similarly, you can post on another Page’s timeline as your Page.
3. Share posts from other Pages on your Facebook Page
When you see a great post from another Page in your niche pop up in your News Feed, share it with your audience. Click the Share button, and click the option to Share to a Page. Then select the appropriate Page you’d like to share it to.
In some cases, you’ll see the option to share the original post. This checkbox comes up in some cases when a post has a status and a link. The original post includes a link to the Page the post came from along with the author’s commentary and a link to the article. You can always add your own status above the post as well.
4. View your Page’s News Feed
You can easily view recent updates from Pages you’ve Liked as your Page from your Page…we know, that’s a confusing mouth full! It’s more simple than it sounds.
From your Page, under the cover photo, click See Pages Feed.
This is a simple way to keep up with the other Pages in your niche, since you won’t always see their updates in your personal News Feed.
You’ll see the Pages your Page had liked on the left side, with the most recent updates from the Pages in the News Feed right from your Page. Then you can engage with those updates automatically from your Page.
5. Reply to mentions as your Page
Do you have your Page’s notifications turned on? This will let you know if a user or Page mentions your Page, giving you another opportunity to interact and engage. You can still find these under the Notifications tab in the Activity section.
Being mentioned is great for raising your Page’s awareness, but be sure to acknowledge the person who mentioned you by responding with a comment.
Get out there and socialize as your Page. Engaging with other Page’s is one proven way to attract a larger audience back to your own Page. In any case, be sure to add value to the discussion with information, entertainment or a solution.
