Before I share with you what you need to know about boosting a post on Facebook, here is the difference between boosting and promoting.

Three Different Ways You Can Promote on Facebook

1. Boosted post
2. Promoted post
3. Newsfeed Ad

Boosting Posts on Facebook

Boosting a post is as easy as clicking the ‘boost’ button in the bottom right hand corner of your post. It used to be difficult to chose a target market but with Facebook’s latest updates, you now have the option to target to your fans, friends of fans as well as by gender, age, location, interest and their demographics.

Promoting Posts on Facebook

Promoting a post is managed from inside the Facebook Ads Manager/Power Editor and you are given more control over who you want to target. If you have a specific campaign in mind, and the post you want to promote serves a purpose, promoting it will give you a better chance of reaching potential customers who have not interacted with your business.

Just like a promoted post, a newsfeed ad is managed from inside the Power Editor however, a newsfeed ad does not show up organically on the wall of your Facebook Page. This will only show up in the newsfeed of those you want to target.
