facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - Conspiracy, Compromise, or Opportunity? - 04/11/18 01:49 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
Up to 87 million U.S. based FB accounts were compromised when their (our) information was inappropriately shared with research firm Cambridge Analytica over the last couple of years. Who cares! If we have an online presence our information can be scraped by those who know how to do it.
Instead of worrying about a compromise, I prefer to use my resources to improve my online posture, and I know FB can and does help me do that. I will leave the conspiracies (or told-you-so's) to those with more free time on their hands...I just want to generate new biz! What about you?

facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - What It Takes To Become A Groupie - 04/04/18 03:30 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
Over the past few years I have found I get the quickest Facebook results from my articles/listings because I am active in several FB groups. Most of the groups are local but I also frequent a couple of large scale groups to see what is trending in both real estate and social media. If you are not already actively utilizing Facebook groups, I would highly encourage you to give them a try. You can start your FB group search here.
I have also found it pays to dust off older content, refresh it with updated information (and photos), … (31 comments)

facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - When Do You Know The Well Is Dry? - 03/28/18 03:37 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
I get asked quite a bit what is the best/most effective approach to generate leads from Facebook. It's a valid question. My answer is it is the approach that you are going to stick with through both the busy and slow periods. Like blogging, social media marketing is a marathon not a sprint (probably why some do not do it, and many that do stop before they see progress).
Find out what works for you (by trying different things/approaches) then continue going back to the well until it is dry or you decide it is time to … (37 comments)

facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - Heard Any Good Conspiracies Lately? - 03/21/18 02:41 AM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
I finally had enough of the conspiracy rants yesterday centered around the Cambridge Analytica fiasco so I avoided the platform, even steering clear of my favorite local groups. I am back today and focused on the things that work for me to generate consumer interest and new prospects. Sometimes it is best to take a step-back and gain perspective than to respond to morons when under-informed users start to make a spectacle of themselves!
Did You Know...according to the PEW Research Center, 76% of Facebook users say they visit the site at least once a day. How are you … (16 comments)

facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - Taking a Social Media Leap of Faith! - 03/14/18 03:13 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
I was derelict in my Facebook Fridays group management duties recently and there was an uptick in spammy articles posted to the group that really were better suited elsewhere. It got me thinking...when we bombard consumers with the same things over and over again on social media, are they deleting, hiding, or ignoring our efforts? Keep them interested by posting a wide variety of information at various times instead of the same strict schedule. Try it...I bet you see an uptick in engagement.
Did You Know...according to eMarketing, 71% of U.S. Internet users access a social media network at least every … (25 comments)

facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - Why Thinking Before We Type Is Critical! - 03/07/18 05:09 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
Sometimes our emotions get the better of us and we say or do something we regret. It is no different online. In fact it may be easier to go off the rails when our rant is via the keyboard and not face to face. I watched an acquaintance implode online this week and it will be a long way back if they recover at all. I would encourage you to not take that approach on social media, regardless of the topic or how riled up you may get. Consumers are watching and your reputation and any inroads made can be … (23 comments)

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
Hopefully those that made commitments to use or improve their FB usage in 2018 are still following through with those plans. Are you? Anyone decide they were going to use Facebook ads/boosts more often (or for the first time) in 2018? How is that going? Perhaps you are like me and only tweaking a few things this year. Any results from those efforts yet? What say you Rainers?

facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - FB ChaChaChanges Things Up Again! - 02/21/18 02:59 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
It was a very busy month for Facebook, complete with several new updates and changes. For instance, Ads Manager and Power Editor were finally merged. Page insights has been tweaked (again) and both privacy and the protection of data were refreshed. If you were affected or noticed these or other changes, what do you think of them? For the rest...keep pressing on to reach and exceed your FB goals.
Did You Know...according to eMarketer, nearly 60% of U.S. Internet users selected FB to watch videos online in December 2017. Are you taking advantage of that factoid and generating new … (36 comments)

facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - Key Ways To Give Your FB Presence A Facelift - 02/14/18 01:51 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
I did a serious purge this week on the FB groups I am a member of and it feels great to be down to a manageable list again. While they are a fantastic way to generate ideas, learn, network, and even pickup prospects, if we cannot manage them our effectiveness drops off quickly. If you are not an active member of a few Facebook real estate groups, I would encourage you to join a couple. Start Here. There are plenty of good ones so share your favorites in the comments below.

facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - Do You Practice What You Preach? - 02/07/18 03:04 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
I sure wish everyone bashing FB would take their own advice and actually leave the platform. There, I said it! I must have read 10 articles/FB threads this week about Facebook's demise, rants about their newsfeed changes, security concerns (for the umpteenth time), the direction Zuck and his team are taking the social media giant, and in each case the author(s) mentioned we should leave the site.
I checked each of the author's SM profiles and all of them have robust FB biz pages that were very active. Bash, reap, bash some more, reap still more...hypocritical. Credibility … (30 comments)

facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - Everyday Can Be Super On Social Media - 01/31/18 02:37 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
Is it more hype and hoopla than a substantial overhaul? Since the news feed changes last month I have been waiting for a decrease in activity and engagement or at least a shift in what comes through my feed but so far everything appears to be status quo. Have you noticed anything yet? If so, I for one would love to know what effects you are seeing so please share your experiences. 
Did You Know...according to Wordstream, over 50 million businesses are on Facebook. All the more reason to ensure our biz pages stand out from others in our … (41 comments)

facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - Have You Lost Your Social Media Focus? - 01/24/18 03:13 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
...and I smiled. Small talk with an agent this week who mentioned she was not getting clients from social media and was closing her accounts. I cannot say I was all that surprised. She had plenty of head knowledge from various webinars/seminars but had the set it and forget about it mentality. She did not get it...when you take the SOCIAL out of SM, you might as well shutdown your accounts because there will be zero prospects, leads, or clients from that source. All I could do at that point was wish her well knowing it was … (21 comments)

facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - BIG Changes are Here...How Prepared Are You? - 01/18/18 02:30 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
There has been a LOT of discussion all over the Web this week concerning the new FB news feed changes. If you are marketing on FB, it makes sense to read up on how those changes "may" affect your marketing methods and approach. One of the articles below will help you tremendously in this regard so be sure to check it out. ;-)
Did You Know...according to Zephoria, the highest amount of FB traffic happens mid-week between 1-3pm. Mix up your post times and see for yourself if activity goes up during this timeframe.  ;-)

facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - What is Holding You Back? - 01/09/18 03:14 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
I was asked over the weekend what do I think is the secret to having real estate marketing success on social media. I know my answer disappointed the person asking the question because I think they were expecting an A to Z or step-by-step how-to. My answer was "just do it". Like this classic Art Williams video stresses, we need to stop talking about doing things and just jump in and get those things done. I am committed in 2018 to do that...are you, Rainers?
Did You Know...according to OmniCoreAgency, the average Facebook user is connected to 80 pages, groups, … (30 comments)

Hopefully the stockings have already been hung, the shopping is done, preparations for family/friends are finalized, and you are ready for holiday overload! While not important for Christmas (or whatever events you decide to follow/or not), it is the perfect time to catch up on our social media marketing. Why now?
Because nearly everyone in your community who is looking to buy or sell a home in the near future is off of work at least for a day. Rest assured, millions will be on FB and so should we. Post this weekend, setup a boost/ad to … (33 comments)

facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - What Are Your 2018 Marketing Plans? - 12/12/17 12:44 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
By now you have probably gone through your list of Facebook "things" that either worked well or bombed in 2017. I know I have. For me, there will be increased emphasis on targeted listing ads and less boosts of general articles (although I will be boosting a few specific series a few times next year to increase biz in those areas). What are your Facebook plans in 2018? What will get more attention? Less? Do share!
Did You Know...according to WordStream, Facebook is available in 101 languages. Hint: Developing a demographic niche has never been easier!  ;-)

As 2017 is winding down, how would you rate your Facebook presence this year? Did you accumulate plenty of quality leads? Pickup new clients? See an improvement in interactions, followers, and/or positive results from your call to actions? Did you effectively try out a new feature? Did you start or continue using FB ads? Facebook Live/videos? Do share ya'll!

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
Tis the season! Which is a good reminder that it is a good time to change up our Facebook cover photos to something more seasonal or festive. Making one ourselves is always a good option for those who are tech savvy. For the rest of us, utilizing a resource like Fiverr to have one created is a more viable option. Do share a link to your page if you update yours...I would love to come give it a thumbs-up!

facebook tips: Facebook Fridays - Stop Thinking About It...Just Do It! - 11/21/17 03:59 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
I see it all the time. Lack of follow through, paralysis by analysis, fear of failure, tech limitations, stubbornesss, inability to set aside personal bias, etc. These and other "issues" are killing our online marketing opportunities. We need to stop over thinking things or continually asking 12 ways to Sunday how/why/what.  We need to...Just.Do.It.
This is especially true for FB ads. If you can spare $10 and can follow onscreen prompts, you can literally have a basic ad running in 5 minutes. From there you can branch out and learn how to target specific demographics, make the … (37 comments)

This is a great time of year for social media marketing! As consumers travel to see family/friends or prepare their home for an onslaught of visitors, many end up having a lot of downtime. This means they will be grabbing their electronic devices and perusing their favorite social media sites. Savvy marketeres (all ya'll) know this and will be ramping up efforts this next week to put out quality real estate information to catch their attention. I will. Will you Rainers?
