I would like to take a moment to recognize Stacey Harmon over at Agent Applause. If you have not become a Facebook fan of hers you are missing out on some great social networking and other Real Estate business tips. Here is the Agent Applause Facebook fan page if you would like to join.

Stacey was kind enough to feature yours truly over on her site regarding how to engage your Facebook business page fans.

Stacey was astute in noticing that one of the things I try to do when I have time is send a quick note thanking the person for becoming a fan. Stacy recognized this and gave me some kudos at the Agent Applause site.

Build Facebook Fan Page Love|Thank Friends for Becoming a Fan!

Of course I can't do this all the time, as sending out over 950 notes would be pretty time consuming!

When I do have the chance, most of the time it is just a quick thank you and a thumbs up to them. Nothing elaborate just quick and to the point.

As many of my subscribers here at Active Rain know, I often share Real Estate and social media marketing tips.

Over at my Facebook fan page I do the same thing. Please feel free to become a Bill Gassett Facebook Fan:)

Here are a few examples of articles I have written over the last month. These tips are well worth reading if you want your business to grow online:

Social Networking becoming more important for Google SERPS!

Free SEO Through Google Local Business Pages

Check them out you will be glad you did!


Facebook SpamWhile we are on the subject of Facebook and fan pages I will make a few suggestions to some folks who may not know any better.

Send invitations for YOUR FAN page to:

  • Friends
  • Family
  • Colleagues
  • Social network friends
  • Business associates
  • Others in your industry

DO NOT send invites to your favorite local restaurant, bakery, ect, ect to your Social network friends who live in another state and could care less.

People that fan your page are there to support you and hopefully learn something interesting.

They don't want to be bombarded on a daily basis with fan requests for things that they don't care about. This is called  INTRUSIVE MARKETING and it will turn people off quick! When you send these kind of requests over and over again you more than likely will have lost a contact.

The old days of print ads or the direct mail flyer is slowly screeching to a halt. With the increase of mobile technology and access to online internet information at the virtual click of a touch screen, many business owners are turning to online PR Campaign strategies to drive business leads.

A Public relations campaign consisting of electronic newsletter distribution, e-mail marketing or even online webinars is slowly becoming the norm when business leaders look for new ways to reach their target markets. It comes as no surprise that many buyers are using the internet and mobile devices as vehicles to do more product and service research.

As the internet becomes more accessible using smart phones as a utility device, small business owners need to become easier to find and reachable. The old days of using the yellow pages to find a good lawyer, dentist or real estate agent is long gone. Every business needs a pipeline of client leads to survive and because competition is fierce, staying with old marketing platforms can mean slow death to any small business owner.

As your competition becomes more internet savvy, it is even more important to stay abreast of new marketing techniques to reach potential prospects. By using the internet to promote your business and stay ahead of competitive threats your giving your company a chance to continue growing.
