The answer is found in yesterdays podcast, that is that people aren’t seeing your posts as much as they could be. According to a 2013 salesforce article 25 Mind Blowing Email Marketing Stats

roughly half of an email list will be active. This is opening or clicking on links. That’s substantially up from the 2-6% on Facebook a year later then that article was published, and even more then the 16% in 2012. This is also even better then the 1-3% impressions on twitter.

So, in short, you should build an email list over a Facebook page. That being said you shouldn’t neglect Facebook either. Want to chat more about strategy for your business? Get in contact with me.
