facebook: Facebook Fridays - Slow and Steady Beats Hype Every Time - 06/06/18 02:00 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
It is easy to get caught up in the hype of new things or even sucked in by the can't miss approach or biz opportunity to improve our marketing. The truth is, most of the social media sites (FB included), only work if we put in the effort to make them a success. That starts with providing local consumers with something of value, such as a blog post about something going on in your community (rezoning, a new law, etc.) and expanding from there. Do not forget to engage with them when they start visiting...if you are … (18 comments)

facebook: Facebook Fridays - Results Are Reached Thru Repetition - 05/30/18 02:44 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
I often get asked where an agent should start after they create a Facebook Biz Page. There really is no wrong approach as long as it is measurable and there is some type of call to action. That could be as simple as asking a question or as complex as performing ad marketing to a specific demographic. The key is to do it consistently enough so you can track the results, making changes/updates as necessary to get the desired results. If your approach is not working, change it up by adding interesting photos, try FB Live, or … (22 comments)

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
Facebook contests can be a good way to generate a lot of new interest and additional brand exposure. Now that the weather is warming up (or already hot) in many areas, what do you think are fun, interesting, or entertaining FB contest ideas that consumers in your area would participate in? Do share your ideas...you might just help someone else or take-away something you can try from one of their examples.

facebook: Facebook Fridays - Embracing the Algorithm Changes - 05/16/18 02:28 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
If you are an active social media user you know how important engagement is to sustain interest and capture new leads. FB understands this too and has been making changes to their algorithm that affects the news feed.
Have you noticed their "Posts from Across Facebook" prompt in your news feed? If you have seen it you may have also noticed that when you scroll past it a white bar appears at the top of your feed. That bar tells you FB is pushing you content that meets your interests (as determined by their algorithm/your actions).

facebook: Facebook Fridays - What Happens When You Mix Things Up? - 05/09/18 02:03 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
Do you sometimes feel like your FB marketing is like being in the Bill Murray movie, Groundhog Day? Eventually, even successful choices if done over and over will begin to become less effective. This week try something out-of-the-norm and see how your readers react. It can be as simple as a question or photo message or as elaborate as a contest. Just mix it up and see what transpires. You may be pleasantly surprised with the results.

facebook: Facebook Fridays - Who Is In Your Tribe? - 05/01/18 03:33 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
Do you know what the easiest way to generate a steady stream of Facebook leads is?  It is not ads nor is it FB groups, although both should be an integral part of your overall Facebook strategy. It is simply to engage those who make contact with you. Acknowledge those consumers who leave a comment, respond to your private messages, and even seek out those who leave a like. The more "touch" you provide, the better your chances are of creating leads that turn into clients.

facebook: Facebook Fridays - Be Informed and Avoid Getting Snakebit - 04/25/18 02:47 PM

~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~
Facebook has gone under the hood and made a bunch of privacy and advertisement adds, changes, deletions, and updates over the past month to better protect information and to improve the user experience. They have clamped down on what 3rd party apps can access (i.e. member lists, events, affiliations, groups, photos, etc.), improved page authenticity (to reduce fake accounts), made privacy tool updates, and plenty of other changes. What have you noticed?

How often do you check your Facebook Analytics? Did you know you could? A quick way is via the top menu on your FB Biz Page. Click on "Insights". From there you can get a quick snapshot of your FB reach, views, likes, engagement, new followers, ad/boosted information, and a host of other great data that can help you measure your marketing effectiveness. What does yours say about your FB efforts?

facebook: 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: 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: 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: 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: 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.

facebook: 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)

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?

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.

facebook: 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.

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

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.

...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 … (22 comments)
