~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~

Another successful week of FB ads for my new listings netted a contract on one already and a future buyer on another. Both came via FB (one is a long-time FB follower and the other found me online and made contact via Messenger). The power of FB ads still amazes me. For the price, they really cannot be beat!

August will be here in a few days which means Facebook will be rolling out a few new changes and updates in the next week or so. I look forward to improvements they make (most of the time) and hope you do as well. Stay turned for updates in the next couple of weeks.

Did You Know...according to InfoDocket, FB users spend an average of 20 minutes at a time on the site. With such a small window of opportunity, we should focus on providing quality content to catch and keep their attention!

What methods and techniques are you deploying to generate new prospects from your Facebook marketing? Ads? Sharing niche information? Engaging with visitors? Local groups? A new tip or trick? Do share Rainers. ;-) 

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!

I had not heard that FB is ready to roll out some changes.

It will be interesting to see what they are.

Thanks for your tips.

Always a pleasure, Roy.

Jeff: There are several I have posted in Facebook Fridays articles over the last couple of years.

Steffy: You can only create a group from a personal profile, not a biz page.

Happy to assist, Katie.

Thank you for taking a few minutes and visiting each page, Sam!

I do as well. Thanks Melissa.

Debra: I make it a habit to do both too.

John: Hopefully they will be helpful!

I saw...thanks ever so much, Rebecca.

I will. You do the same, Chris.

Margaret: Go for it girl!

Joan: I know what works best for me...plenty of trial/error to get there though.

Facebook is maddening and makes me feel like a confused Neanderthal.  To be fair, I have only been tinkering with it for about a year (?what, really a YEAR?)

With the help of a profoundely wonderful soul from the 'Rain I have made a bit of progress but it is a good thing I do not need Facebook to eat. 

I'd starve.

Make it a Great Day.

I love Facebook and I am there every single day ... a few times a day (as time permits) ... I have three pages: 1) personal page 2) business page 3) ministry page ... I have done FB ads, and I am always posting interesting and relevant as well as not-so relevant material, as well as joined many groups and I definitely engage with anyone who likes or comments on my posts, etc.  Thanks for another great post @Anita Clark

Awesome! I know you have worked hard at your FB marketing, Tammy.

I know you understand how to work it to generate new biz. Kudos to you Diana.

Anita, I've followed you now for a while on my other social media accounts and am glad to find you on Active Rain!  My Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/TheKeadleRealEstateGroup/  You know, we've had this page for several years now and have never gotten a lead that turns into a closing from it.  I added your Facebook Friday group to my calendar for tomorrow and will check out at least 5 members' pages.  Clearly I'm not approaching FB the right way for my business!
