Hello fellow agents.
If anyone has given up trying to figure out what size the cover photo and smaller photos are on Facebook -- fear not. I've put together a quick cheat sheet guide to these for you.
Download this Photoshop JPEG and you'll see the exact size of the Facebook cover photo needs to be 851 pixels WIDE and 315 pixels TALL.
Some helpful DOs and DONT's for your facebook cover.
Make it filled with your text and photos. Remember, LESS is MORE. No clutter. So a clean photo here is a good idea. If you are not sure what a good scenic photo is, don't steal one from Google or Yahoo images. This gets you in trouble.
Get a Royalty Free stock photo from any one of these three recommended locations:
ActiveDen.com ( Go to Photo Dune when you get here... )
Just create your fan page and leave it alone. This is a horrible idea. We're page one #1 and you'd think we'd be getting most of our leads from Google, right? WRONG. A surprising 38% of our new customers are coming to us from Facebook, 4% from Twitter and 11% from CraigsList. Go figure.
Visit your Facebook page daily, like 10 - 15 minutes and start inviting friends and colleagues over.

300+ FACEBOOK LIKES + A SEMI-CUSTOM FACEBOOK COVER PHOTO --- AVAILABLE TO 25 AGENTS ONLY!!!
I can drive 300 - 400 new LIKES (or more) to your Facebook Fan page to help you get kick started if you need help. Email me for a FREE, no-obligation Facebook CMA and I'll give you a few marketing tips that I'm going to include in my next book and workshop series.
I just finished a huge job for Procter & Gamble, so I'm seeing some empty slots now on my calendar for the firs time in nearly a year. I only have a limited time to do this offer -- so this offer is limited to the first 25 agents, and this will include a Facebook cover and a 15-minute power session (one on one) to help you kick start your lead machine from Facebook generated leads. This is normally $295 per project, but I'm going to do these at my cost. $94 each. That gets you a semi custom Facebook cover photo, Facebook review and 300 or more Facebook Likes.
NOTE: Here's a facebook fan page for a client of mine who owns a few luxury vacation rentals in Crested Butte and Aspen. I took this Facebook Fan Page up from 16 to over 470 likes in less than 30 days.
