Xây dựng nội dung Facebook sao cho hiệu quả?

Content is the cornerstone of your page, serving as the key to engaging with users and maintaining long-term relationships. Instead of merely selling, consider your fans as close friends and share valuable information to nurture these relationships over time.

While it might sound easy in theory, crafting content can be challenging. The concept of what makes a post good or bad is often abstract. However, with genuine enthusiasm and knowledge gathered from various sources, you can make content creation easier and truly enjoyable.

In this article, I’ll provide an overview of how to create effective content for your Facebook Fanpage. To start, let’s understand the elements that determine the effectiveness of your content.

1. Key Factors for an Effective Facebook Fanpage

Writing a 10- to 20-line post on Facebook isn’t difficult, but the challenge lies in creating content that attracts users, encourages interaction, and aligns with your objectives, whether that’s selling products or building brand trust. Sometimes, even coming up with a compelling title can be a day-long endeavor.

  • Quality always outweighs quantity: Some suggest posting 3-5 times a day during peak hours to keep your page fresh. However, if these posts lack substance, it’s better to write one meaningful post.
  • Interact with your fans: If fans comment or ask questions, respond promptly with a friendly and brand-appropriate tone. Delayed responses can deter engagement.

2. Identifying Your Target Audience.

From the start of your Facebook marketing campaign, you must define your specific target audience. In the content creation phase, you should refine and detail this even further.

  • Who are they?
  • What’s their age range?
  • Where do they live?
  • What’s their profession/education?
  • What are their interests and habits?
  • What are their current concerns and needs? (products, services)
  • Where do they go, what do they eat, and what do they enjoy?
  • Who are their friends?
  • Which brands related to your product/service are they interested in? (industry-specific)


The more detailed your understanding, the better you can picture your audience. If you’re struggling, visit the profiles of 50-100 typical customers and study their information.

3. The Content You Deliver

  • Determine your goal: Are you selling or building a brand? Your objective influences how you craft your content.
  • Avoid excessive length. Keep in mind that users often skim content, so engage them within the first 3-5 seconds with compelling visuals, an appealing title, and concise text.

Whether your aim is sales or brand building, avoid excessively long posts. Extended posts are suitable for storytelling or motivational pieces, but not for brand or sales content.

  • Create posts with a clear structure that grabs the reader’s attention.
  • Ensure your content is easy to understand; don’t make users guess, unless your product is tailored to people with an IQ above 130.

4. Creative Content Ideas for Your Fanpage

Apart from sales-focused content, you should also include introductory and brand-building posts, as well as natural, interactive posts that add value. Here are some creative content ideas:

4.1 Content that encourages interaction::

Create engaging posts, such as contests, questions, surveys, and games to encourage fans to share, comment, and participate.

4.2 User-generated content:

Feature customer feedback, real-life images, reviews, customer testimonials, customer wishes, customer issues, and responses from other customers.

4.3 Brand content:

Share your brand’s history, product/service details, awards, events, product advertisements from reputable sources, customer testimonials, standout features, product usage guides, customer interviews, etc.

4.4 Promotional posts:

When writing promotional content, you can use various formulas like AIDA (Attention, Interest, Desire, Action), FAB (Features, Advantages, Benefits), PAS (Problem, Agitate, Solve), 4 U (Useful, Urgent, Unique, Ultra-specific).

Ensure your promotional posts have:

  • A captivating title that captures the essence of the post and lures the reader in.
  • A description of the unique and outstanding features of your product or service.
  • Real customer testimonials and statistics to build trust.
  • A strong call to action to prompt engagement.

5. Effectiveness and Uniqueness

Once you have your content, you need to plan specific posting schedules, deciding when to post, what day to post, what time, and the frequency.

  • Aim for at least 1-2 posts per day.
  • Plan your messages for the week or month. You can align posts with trends or special occasions such as Women’s Day, Christmas, New Year, Valentine’s Day, and more.

  • Timing is crucial; most organic reach occurs within an hour of posting. So, post when your potential customers are most active on Facebook. If you target middle-aged office workers, consider posting in the morning before they start work, during lunchtime, and in the evening.
  • Keep up with trends and timing. If an event is approaching, like Christmas next week, start your campaign now to beat the competition and the rising advertising costs.
  • Don’t only focus on selling; share useful information to benefit both you and your customers.
  • Connect with your fans.
  • Don’t sell while forgetting your brand’s personality. Building a brand takes time, but a single mistake can destroy it.
  • Be unique, captivating, and fast. If you spot a trend from abroad and predict it will reach Vietnam soon, don’t wait for everyone else to write about it. You may want to take a risk.
