When it comes to creating social media content as a business on Facebook it can get frustrating when some posts get a lot of views and engagement, while others barely get one view. Did you know Facebook provides you a tool to know when your audience is expected to interact with your brand the most and what content works best?

Get Some Insight On Your Practice

Page Insights is a tool that Facebook provides to every Business Page and is a tool that content creators can’t do without.  Learning the “flow” of your page is crucial to content creation, as well as when to post your content.  If you are only posting whenever the feeling strikes, you could just be putting out content that will never be seen by your audience. This rule only applies to created and scheduled content.  It does not apply to any “at the moment” happenings like birthdays, team events, patient surprises, etc.

Let’s dive into Page Insights and the wealth of knowledge it can bestow on you! Go to’s username)/insights.  Once there, you’ll have a list of options on the right-hand side.

First, we are going to look under posts. When you click on this tab on the left, it’s going to show you “When Your Fans Are Online.” You will see the days of the week with a number on top that showcases what day has the most fans online. As you’ll see in the graph below, it shows the times our fans are online. If you hover over the days, the specific times for that day will be displayed below. Having this data gives us great insight into when exactly we should start scheduling our posts. It also shows us when to test with strong content.  But how do we know what content is our strong content? On the top of the analytics, click over to the next tab that says, “Post Types.”

Under the Post Types section, we can see the different types of posts that have been published on our page. We can also see exactly what the average reach and engagement is for that style.  This is helpful so that when creating content we can hone in on, we’ll know exactly what type of content we need to focus on.

Now we have found out what day of the week to post, what time to post, and what type of content to post.  However, we are not done!  Next, we need review how our current post copy (captions) are doing. Now we need to jump over to Creator Studio. (  Once you are on this page, click on the Published tab. Here you will have a layout of all the posts made on our page and the performance of each post. This gives us great insight as to what is working best.
