2. Be vocal.

You're on Facebook, it's social – talk to your audiences. Post often (but don't overdo it, we all know businesses that inundate news feeds, it doesn't work well) and make sure your messages are varied.

3. Use easy opportunities.

Valentine's Day, Easter, summer holidays, back to school, Halloween and Christmas, to name just a few 'hooks' for posts. It might be a deal, promoting new stock or menus, or simply an (occasional) humorous picture to make your audience smile.
