@Marvel_Equity, great point about “too much text.” I didn’t have any problems with too much text as long as I was posting in the local groups. This became an issue only after I used paid advertising. The second picture in the blog was more to FB’s liking.
Also, from listening to some podcasts, I understand it is best to not use the “boost” function. People recommend that you start an ad from scratch. It may be that by starting from scratch you go thru the proper recommended steps.
@Jsmith it seems to me that local groups are an excellent resource. Have you tried paid advertising at all?
