So said 7% of the nearly 400 readers who weighed in on the question “What kinds of posts create the most engagement on your Facebook page?” in our recent Big Survey. They claimed that personal posts involving the owner, employees or, most popular of all, pets were the ones that resulted in the most responses from fans.
But that didn’t hold a candle to the most popular type of post: product images. A whopping 55% of respondents said that this was the most effective.
The next three most successful types of posts were:
- Client stories (21%)
- Contests (8%)
- Time-driven offers (2%)
