Happy Facebook Fridays, Rainers!

Sometimes I have no idea what I am doing! Do you ever feel that way about some aspect of your social media marketing? Isn't it a great feeling when the light bulb flickers, brightens up, and the issue gets resolved!

After bumping my head repeatedly against a wall with FB mobile I had an AHA moment earlier this week and the problem (bigger in my mind than it really was) got resolved. Now I can fully focus on important social media things (no not kitten photos although they are cute!) like sharing my brand and blog content to the masses via Facebook and other social media platforms. I hope you are doing the same to get your information seen!

After scouring the Web for quality FB content to share this week, I am pleased with the variety of information below, and believe there are excellent opportunities to make subtle changes to our Facebook presence and reap the rewards. For me, the rewards are increased exposure and new clients. I bet that list is the same for many of you too. As always, enjoy Rainers!

Happy Facebook Fridays!

Thanks again for the FB Friday effort. I too love those moments when it clicks. You inspire me. I'll try to get some "liking" done in a bit.

Thanks a bunch, Joe. I know your likes will be appreciated.

Conrad: It sure seems that way sometimes!

Sheila: It can definitely take some time.

The journey is half the fun, Sheila. ;-)

Roger: That was definitely the case with me. I just kept plugging away until AHA!

There are some really good tips this week, Debbie. 

It is the truth, Bobbie. Once we figure the issue out the solution is often much simpler than we thought.

Happy to help. Thanks Dorie.

C'mon back anytime, Gabe.

It is a never ending cycle or so it seems, Ginny.

Perfect. Thanks as always, Andy.

John: Thanks a million!

As long as there is interest I will keep it going, Roy.

Thanks Joan. I hope many Rainers go visit my choices this week.

YAY...thanks so much, Sheri!

Debb: Trying my best...some days it is good enough and others I need to try harder. LOL

Anita "feeling like I don't know what I am doing" goes way beyond just social media, it applies to most of what I do ...... LOL

Toni: No doubt, especially if we are proactively using it to try and generate new biz.

George: I always get the impression you are on top of your game!

Beth: I have a lot of those moments too. Sometimes I am able to figure it out myself and sometimes I call in the cavalry. LOL

BLiz: They have worked for me and others have shared the same. Used right they can be a great ally.

Please do, Rob. The more visits they get the better.

Awesome! Thanks so much Rebecca.

I am fixing to go back and read all the links you set up in this post. I love Face Book and get many leads there but lately I have been banging my head up against the FB wall also. Now that I am full time I have the time to go and try and figure some stuff out!

Good morning Anita Clark 

A question for you. Each week I reach out by liking each on your Friday FB list.  I tell them I am there via you and and AR.  I request a like for our business page in return and leave a direct link to it.  We do get some likes on the comment or a thank you now and then but it's rare we get a like in return.  What am I doing wrong?  I've logged in, liked and requested as John, as our business page and as myself.  Your thoughts?

Anita, I am a day late, but as always I need a refresher for my social media, so your post is always a welcome site. Now, I will to a visit all those you recommended. Hope your back is feeling better.

Debbie: It is an issue I and others experience as well. Some do not understand the reciprocal like process, some may be doing it wrong, and others well... 

Do not let it discourage you...those that are returning the likes are those you want to engage with anyway because they are actively working on their FB presence.

Sharon: It is a pretty nifty trick that can really come in handy.

Jerry: I am getting around ok...still not back to 100% but I will survive. ;-)

I am taking a facebook sabbatical! It is a time thing. Well, not just facebook, but social media in general. I've decided to be more social and less media. HA! :)
