facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - New Prospects Are Only An Ad Away! - 07/26/17 12:03 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
Another successful week of FB ads for my new listings netted a contract on one already and a future buyer on another. Both came via FB (one is a long-time FB follower and the other found me online and made contact via Messenger). The power of FB ads still amazes me. For the price, they really cannot be beat!
August will be here in a few days which means Facebook will be rolling out a few new changes and updates in the next week or so. I look forward to improvements they make (most of the time) and … (6 comments)

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
We all know how critical time is in our industry, in fact, I bet most of us think we do not have enough of it to tackle all the tasks we are working on. The truth is, sometimes a few tweaks to our management of available time can pay huge dividends if we use that newly found time wisely.
With as little as 10 minutes a day spent on FB posting, commenting, and being helpful via your FB Biz Page, you can gain a market foothold and get a steady stream of new real estate prospects. Try … (25 comments)

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
Are you having difficulties finding your FB footing? Not getting the quality leads you expected (or any at all). If so, the first place to start is with what you are posting to your FB page. If you are not getting any feedback from local readers you are not providing the real estate content they want to see. What's the easiest way to remedy that issue? Ask your readers what they want...it really is that simple!  ;-)

facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - The Cure For Social Media Bloating - 06/28/17 12:00 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
As we have come to expect from this social media giant, there are a bunch of Facebook updates on the horizon. Improved dynamic ads, snapshot video metrics, instant article updates, and a host of canvas templates (mobile) to name a few of the new/improved features. What does this mean for you? It means you need to stop back in to Facebook Fridays periodically to get an update on these enhancements as well as key information and advice to help you best use these resources. ;-)

facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - An Honest Assessment Is One Request Away! - 06/21/17 03:54 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
Full width mobile FB ads are now here as is tighter scrutiny for click-bait targeting at the post level. Both are changes I have been waiting for as I believe they will improve the Facebook experience for all users. However, I am curious how FB will be able to decipher click-bait posts over regular content...I guess that is why their engineers/code gurus get paid the big bucks!
Did You Know...according to ExpandedRamblings, there will be over 169 million Facebook users in the U.S. by 2018! How much more income can you generate by getting only 6 of them to commit to … (24 comments)

facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - Speeding Down The Social Media Highway - 06/14/17 03:18 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
Recently, Facebook updated its ad reporting and I have been pleasantly surprised how easy to use and insightful it is. If you run ad campaigns you can quickly review your click-thru rates as well as your page interactions, all from the Ads Manager. It works Rainers so give it a test drive and see what your results look like!
Just for fun...according to Omnicore, the Facebook like button has been clicked 1.13 trillion times. I wonder how many are cat meme's?!?!
I have made it a priority this year to do periodic updates, and engage more, on all the … (33 comments)

facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - Seeing The Forest Thru The Social Media Trees! - 06/07/17 12:53 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
It. Is. True. It just is. With so many stories of success by agents from around the country, using FB to help market yourself, your articles, and/or your clients homes makes good business sense. It can be done effectively for free but you can really ramp things up with a small ad budget each month too. It works, Rainers.
Did you know...according to WordStream, the average conversion rate for FB ads in the real estate industry is 10.68%. The average acrosss 17 major industries is 9.21%. Sounds like money well spent!

facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - The One That Got Away! - 05/31/17 02:40 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
I genuinely want to assist every legitimate real estate consumer who contacts me. I suspect we all want that. When I am unable to do it, for whatever reason, it stings a little.
Recently I lost a buyer who sent me 3 Facebook messages over a 5 hour period and I was not quick enough on the response (I was out showing other buyers' homes most of the day). The buyer I lost ended up with a colleague who quickly got her under contract. Not much I could have done to prevent it (short of having a VA … (41 comments)

facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - What Results Are You Looking For? - 05/23/17 03:02 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
Social media marketing has always been a little bit like the movie Jumanji (with Robin Williams) to me. You have to keep playing to see results. Sometimes those results are not what you expected but the end goal is to win (i.e. receive buyer/seller clients). When the FB drum starts beating do you run or dig in and prepare for future success?
Did you know...according to Sprout Social, the U.S. is the top country for Facebook users. We make up 12% of the worldwide market share. Yet another reason to concentrate some of our online marketing towards Facebook … (40 comments)

Sometimes we are just too busy to learn how to do certain Facebook tasks or we know what to do but run out of working hours to accomplish those things. When that happens for an extended period of time does your FB presence become a social media ghost town or do you pick back up where you left off?

facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - The Secret To Generate FB Biz - 05/10/17 02:30 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
I got asked this week how I get business from my FB Biz Page. When I asked for more clarification they said "there is nothing special about your page". They were correct! The page by itself has very little to do with the biz I get from FB.
Repetitive interaction in local FB groups, targeted ads/boosts, and staying top of mind via periodic sharing (and cross-promoting via other social media outlets) are what generates quality leads for me. The page is just the source used for interaction and lead capture. Now you know my "secret". ;-)

I have noticed recently that many of you do not have your FB Biz Page as an icon on your ActiveRain profile. I would encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity to utilize all that AR has to offer, especially the ability to increase both your brand exposure and social media presence by sharing where consumers can find you online.

Another week is winding down which means there is a new Facebook Fridays article to encourage you to go visit other Rainer biz pages (you do that each week...right?!) and perhaps even learn a few tips from the articles I found this week while surfing the web. Take a gander on both fronts, make some new friends/referral partners, and perhaps even find something to give your social media marketing a boost.

facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - Make The Move From Victim To Victor! - 04/12/17 12:23 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
"Your apathy is the problem, not Facebook". That was what I was thinking earlier this week in a private FB group where numerous real estate pros started bashing Facebook (not sure why they stay on FB to be honest). Complaints ranged from: it is a time waster, no one gets biz from it, it is not secure enough, real clients do not use FB, too many stalkers, and even it is too hard to figure out. All valid points to some degree but only because we let it be that way. Let's stop being victims and instead become … (41 comments)

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
You know what is wonderful about social media marketing? We get to choose what we do, how we do it, and the frequency of those actions. Sometimes we have time constraints, a bias against using a particular platform, and occasionally we do not possess the technical skills to make it all work. We can even choose to do nothing at all. Whatever category we fall into, we all get to determine what works best for our biz model!

No clue. None. That was me earlier this week as I was asked by a local agent to help with a specific aspect of their Facebook presence. I felt bad because I was not able to fully assist.
Despite our involvement with social media or perceived expertise, the reality is, there are times when we just do not have the answers. If you have felt that way about FB or some other social media platform, do not give up, because you are not alone! Keep working at it...the answers will come.

facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - Frustrated, Fretting, or Finally! - 03/22/17 02:28 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
It can be incredibly difficult to keep up with all the social media trends, updates, and enhancements. It can be even more difficult to interpret and implement some of those changes. The best advice I can share with you is to take the time to learn as much about the change or process as you can, then take it slowly as you install/setup so you do not miss a step, and finally do some testing once completed to ensure you are getting the results you are expecting. Do that every time and avoid FB frustration!
