Here are the top ten digital marketing keywords you need to know.
01 Organic reach

02 Engagement rates

03 Boost vs Ads
while they both mean paid advertising on Facebook, you can do more in Ads than you can when Boosting.
You boost via the blue boost button on your page’s post and you can define:
- Who you want to reach
- Your maximum budget
- How long you want to run your ad
With Ads, you go via the Ads Manager function and you can:
- Choose where your ads are going to display – i.e Instagram, or mobile versus desktop
- Use specific ad objectives
- Have creative control, which means you are not restricted by what you post on the feed
- Use advance targeting capabilities.
