How to boost a Facebook post from eclincher?

You can boost your Facebook post within eclincher via Post Now, Auto Post with Queues, and previously published posts.

We have enhanced our Facebook Boost feature to include the ability to select the Objective and select a Facebook Custom/Saved Audience. One of the advantages of this new feature is that you will now be able to boost your post to your pre-defined custom audiences within your Facebook account business manager. In addition, using custom audience will eliminate the time it takes to setup new boost.

How does this work?

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q: Why can't I boost a post in my Auto Post Queues?

Q: What if I copy the posts from Facebook Queue A to Facebook Queue B, will the boost be copied as well?

A: Only the posts will be copied - NOT the boost.
