~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~

Why so glum chum? Facebook marketing got you down? Not seeing the results you hear others are getting? IF it has not been working for you, the answer is to change up your approach. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is silly. Tweak when you post, change up what you share, add interesting photos, try out a video, ask some questions, try targeted and untargeted ads, engage more, etc. Approach it from a real estate consumers perspective...what would you want to see if you were looking for an agent to help you buy/sell a home?

Did You Know...according to SproutSocial, There are over 70 languages available on Facebook. They make it incredibly easy to target a specific demographic...are you? ;-) 

Do you support or run a charitable organization? Find out how your group can start using FB's cool fundraiser tools to setup donation approvals and allow your supporters to create fundraisers. Just one of many features on this social media giant you may not have seen before. 

PLEASE stop by the 5 Facebook Business Pages below, LIKE their page, and leave a comment. It is always nice to reciprocate, so if you are visited, please take a moment and return the favor.

As always, enjoy Rainers!

Facebook Articles

You guessed it Rainers...the articles this week are chock full advice and tips to give your Facebook marketing an edge over the competition. Dig in, find something that piques your interest, then spend part of the weekend setting things up and tweaking to maximize results. You can do it!

Yes, this is the third week in a row, and I am probably sounding like a broken record, but IF you have not yet created a FB biz page, what are you waiting for? I have found the best approach to get new leads and cients is to go after them, not wait for them to come to me. Be proactive, not reactive, and get it built. It will take less than 30 minutes of your time.

Happy Facebook Friday! ;-)

Always a pleasure. Thanks Roy.

Now is definitely the time to jump on that endeavor, Ginny.

Sheila: No sense in doing the same thing repeatedly without getting results from the effort.

Amen, Karen! ;-)

You are quite welcome, MeLisa. I hope you see a lot of new activity as a result.

Thank you Anita Clark again for all that you do here in the Rain helping us all with Facebook.  I like Barbara Todaro idea of using Realbird to boost listings and open house events.

Kathleen: I have never tried Realbird but I know many Rainers that do.

Thanks Will. I hope you are putting some of it into practice.

Each and every week, Debb. Working all weekend but that is fine as I had a few days off this past week. I hope your weekend is a good one.

Well, you kind of just gave me a dose of reality - if it's not working, why continue doing what we're doing, Anita?! 

Thanks for the tidbits and I'll definitely have a look at, at least, the organic results article.

Happy Friday!

Hi Anita

Great suggestions here, especially about considering how a real estate consumer might be thinking, what they want to see when online, or what they would like from an agent they are considering using for buying or selling.

Jeff Dowler That’s especially true when considering that something we’re going to the situation a bit naive but very well meaning.

I hope they do, Carolyn.

Beth: It definitely works but we will not know what works best for us until we try a few options.

Debe: It is easy to get into a pattern without analyzing if our efforts are bringing a ROI.

Jeff: When we do that instead of shooting from the hip we typically will see better results.

So very true. Thanks Laura.

Good tips. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is irrational. Making the change from reactive to proactive may be somewhat difficult, but it is worth it. Thanks for sharing those Facebook links.

I’m learning to be more proactive and more responsive and less reactive, if that makes sense. It’s a process.
