Q: Where do you go to boost posts on Facebook?
A: First, make sure you are logged in as an admin on the Facebook Page that you manage. If you are logged in as an admin, you’ll see a blue button at the bottom corner of a post where you can individually boost a post’s engagement.
The button will look like this.￼
Once you’ve clicked the “Boost post” button you’ll see a page like this.
Here, you’ll be able to choose the call to action you want displayed on your post.
If you have previously built custom audiences in Facebook, you’ll be able to select which audience you want to see this post.

Then, you’ll be able to set your Budget and Duration. That means you can pick a suggested budget from the drop down or type in you rown budget. Then, you can select whether you want the post to run 1 Day, 7 Days, 14 Days, or until a specified date. As you customize your audience details, budget, and duration, you’ll see the Estimated People Reached section give you a reference of how many impressions your post can receive with the currently chosen settings. Note: This is an estimation.
