How Northern Beaches Businesses Can Optimise Their Facebook

Let's go over some tips and tricks on how to optimize your photo posts for Facebook, so your posts can stand out and grab the attention they deserve.

1. Size Matters:

When it comes to uploading photos to Facebook, size really does matter!

The recommended size for photo posts on Facebook is 1200x628 pixels. This size ratio is known as a 1.9:1 aspect ratio, and it is the optimal size for Facebook's algorithm. Posts with this size ratio will have a better chance of appearing larger in the news feed and being seen by more people. However square posts (1:1) are also ideal.

Additionally, keeping your photos within these size ratios will ensure that your photos will not be automatically resized, which can lead to a loss of quality.

2. Quality is Key:

Another important factor in making sure your photo posts look great on Facebook is the quality of the photos you're uploading.

Facebook recommends that you upload photos with a resolution of at least 720 pixels. This will ensure that your photos look sharp and clear on both desktop and mobile devices. Also, make sure to use good lighting when taking your photos and avoid using too many filters that can make your photos look washed out or pixelated.

3. Captions are Crucial:

Along with having great photos, it's also important to have a good caption to accompany your post. Your caption should be short, sweet, and to the point. It's also a good idea to use keywords in your caption, as this will help your post show up in more searches on Facebook.

Remember to use an element of personal voice, people don't like to read from a robotic advertorial voice. Give some personality to what you write.

4. Utilize Hashtags:

Hashtags are a fantastic way to get your photo posts seen by larger volumes of people on Facebook. By including relevant hashtags in your post, you increase the chances of your post being seen by people who are interested in that particular topic.

Just make sure to not overdo it with the hashtags, as this can come across as spammy. Nobody likes spammy.

Optimizing your photo posts for Facebook is not as hard as you might think. By following these simple tips, you'll be well on your way to creating photo posts that will grab the attention they deserve. So, go ahead, snap that photo and make it the best it can be!
