Facebook's New Fan Page Promotion

So Facebook has come up with a new option for those with fan or business pages to help them promote their businesses.  There is a lot of confusion on this as all kinds of information is crawling around the web.  My friend Lori Peterson of  Lori Peterson Photography shared this link with me which helped to clear it up. 


https://www.facebook.com/help/promote


Here is what it says (this is via Facebook from the link above)

If I don't promote my post, will the people who like my page still see it?

Nothing has changed about how your posts are shared with the people who like your Page. 

A lot of activity happens on Facebook and most people only see some of it in their news feeds. They may miss things when they’re not on Facebook, or they may have a lot of friends and Pages, which results in too much activity to show all of it in their news feed. 

If you don’t promote your post, many of the people connected to your Page may still see it. However, by promoting a post, you’re increasing its potential reach so an even larger percentage of your Page audience and the friends of those interacting with your post will see it.



I was somewhat excited about the possibility of being able to promote giveaways or upcoming craft shows.  Well that is not a possibility yet for me.  Seems you have to at least 400 likes in order to promote.  So I am going to be on a campaign to get more likes.  If you haven't liked my  Facebook page yet please do so.  



I hope this clears up some of the confusion out there.  I am not totally thrilled by this change, but I am hoping maybe the promotion campaign might help.

Senora Muertos Is Now Selling Vintage Items

My love for things vintage has taken over. I have a love for all things 1940's and 1950's, but can appreciate the 60's and 70's and even some 80's. I grew up going to thrift stores and yard sales as that is where a majority of our toys and clothing came from. So I know a bargain when I see one! LOL! My kids are also growing up to appreciate a good deal. I have been taking them to thrift stores and yard sales as newborns and on. They both get excited when we go and they both know what to look for, condition, price, etc. They are going to be pros soon! Well my love for vintage has driven me to decide to share my knowledge and love by selling vintage items in my etsy store

.
Here a few items that I recently listed. Be on the look out for many more. 

 Vintage Martini or Cocktail Shaker in Yellow




Mid Century or Modern White Cats (Eames like design)




Vintage Bride and Groom Salt and Pepper Shakers





As always thanks for reading my blog and be sure to check back for more!
