~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~

I have mentioned in the past that joining (and becoming active) in local FB groups is such an easy (and free) way to help us gain brand exposure and establish trust/rapport that can lead to new clients. Did you join any local FB groups this week? Are you consistently active in one or more you do not manage? Or are you skeptical and do not see the point? Do share Rainers...I would love to hear your thoughts. 

Did You Know...according to OmniCore, over 40 million small businesses have created a Facebook Business Page. I wonder how many are active? Is Yours?

Will you be the one? The Facebook Fridays Group here in the Rain is sitting at 999 members. Who will be the one to push us into quadruple digits? Free FB tips and advice await the "winner". You can find the link near the bottom of this article. ;-) 

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!

Roy: You came immediately to mind when I was writing the part about groups. I know you are very active.

Joan: Being active gives us the best opportunity to get contacted.

No doubt about that. Thanks Beth.

We're over 1,000 now, Anita - way to go!! 

As for FB groups - local and real estate-specific (nationally), yes, I am a member of several. Some of them, I 'lurk' and would never make a comment there because of the frenzy some members create over anything said!  You know those groups. 

Others are wonderful - sharing ideas, honesty, levity - I love those groups and participate every chance I can! I'm probably there more than I'm on my own personal page!

Thanks for another great collection of articles to help us all on Facebook! I really haven't done much with Facebook groups and need to make that more of a priority!

Dee: The more active we are on social media the better.

Debe: They really can make a big difference and can be a source of incredible information too. Yes...we are finally over the 1K hurdle. ;-)

Might as well start this weekend, Jeff. 

Music to my ears. Thanks so much Sam!

Anita- you have been a fixture here with your Facebook Fridays and have provided motivation and support to members here.  I know that I seem to interact more with the FB groups, but I do need to spend more time there.

Sharon: It is so easy to jump in and both give/receive.

A busy weekend, Gabe. I hope you have found time to relax.

Thank you, as always, S.A.

Kathy: Doing my best to give a little something back to AR, just like you do each Sunday.

Go for it, Joan. Start now and see results quickly.

I think that a FB Group should be carefully moderated. I have been on some where 1 or 2 people start to dominate and high jack the group. I really get turned off by the know it all and super negative person.

Groups have great sharing potential.

Great points John. I recently left a popular group for that very reason.

Thank you Anita. I am one of those who really dislikes FB so I have to breathe deeply before even opening it. However, I know it is necessary. I am working on a new business page. Thank you for the resources.

Anita: Thank you for much for your great tips. Where do I start so I get all the basics correct? Do fellow realtors like you on your business page or personal page?

Janice: It makes most sense to promote on the business pages since FB expects "work" to take place there.
