~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~

Sometimes we are just too busy to learn how to do certain Facebook tasks or we know what to do but run out of working hours to accomplish those things. When that happens for an extended period of time does your FB presence become a social media ghost town or do you pick back up where you left off?

Did you know there are some excellent virtual assistants here in the Rain that can automate, post, update, and do a host of other things (like FB videos) to keep your FB page relevant and fresh? With help available, we all have the ability to enjoy a robust and fruitful Facebook presence, regardless how busy we may be. Try a VA out and measure the results for yourself, Rainers.

Did you know...according to Facebook, their growth has grown 18% per year and is currently sitting at 1.94 billion monthly active users. I want to reach as many of them as possible that are in my area...how about you?

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!

Anita, it is difficult to keep the Facebook pages current, and is better when it is not the busy Spring or early Summer buying season.

Amanda: And there are some good VA's here in the Rain that do a good job helping keep their clients' FB pages/marketing running smooth too.

Joan: All the more reason to check out what a VA can do to assist.

Anita, Our brokerage provides a service that does some autopopulation of our FB business pages.  Some of the content is decent, some could be better, but at least it's something new every 2-3 days and if I've got something particular I want to add I'll pop over and take care of it.

It's like different machinery, marketing platforms to study and push/pull the levers for a reach that tractor beams them back to your website, phone, web email servers. FB is one strong magnet of a couple we wrestle. Thanks for the ice breaking invitations Anita Clark !

Sheila: It does, but surprisingly, a little periodic nurturing makes the process much easier.

Bill: Keeping the pump primed will keep consumers from disappearing.

You are right Andy. It does have a strong pull if we work at it.

Happy to help, Evelyn. I hope you see a lot of new activity as a result.

Anita interesting points and I am not so sure it is worth the trouble or the effort, of the 1.9billion users how many will actually move to your location? how many will truly connect with you? so with that said good for you not my cup of tea, Endre

Thank you so much Anita for featuring my Facebook page!  I've been trying to post 2 - 3 times a week and keeping it related to real estate or local events so there is a little bit for everyone who follows my page but it isn't overload in people's newsfeeds so they unfollow.  It is tough being a new agent and attracting new likes to my page.  I can only ask my friends so many time to like my page so I really appreciate the new likes I have recieved since you featured me.  Thanks again!

You do the same, Jeff.

Words to live by. Thanks Richie.

Roy: It means more Rainers will see the article and go visit the 5 choices!

John: You are right, it does. It gets easier the more we do it though.

Melissa: Absolutely my pleasure! Boost an article to your local populace to gain more recognition.
