~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~

I get asked quite a bit what is the best/most effective approach to generate leads from Facebook. It's a valid question. My answer is it is the approach that you are going to stick with through both the busy and slow periods. Like blogging, social media marketing is a marathon not a sprint (probably why some do not do it, and many that do stop before they see progress).

Find out what works for you (by trying different things/approaches) then continue going back to the well until it is dry or you decide it is time to add something new to your marketing. It is hard to fail when you use a repeatable process and are consistent with what you do! Just sayin' Rainers. ;-) 

Did You Know...according to Zephoria, there are 2.13 billion monthly Facebook users worldwide. Despite recent "setbacks" on the social media giant, the number of users continues to grow. It sure sounds like a great place to reach out to consumers.  ;-) 

It is a good time to mention that one of the key tenets of Facebook Fridays is visiting the pages of those who are featured each week. Please make the time to add that to your calendar. A few minutes of your time could return a lifetime friend, referral partner, or make someone's day. As always...

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!

It sure does Sally. Happy Easter to you as well.

Happy to do it. Thanks Gita.

Sham: We never know what the future may hold but they are still going strong despite the recent issues.

No doubt about that, Lise. It is that regular commitment that makes a difference.

Wayne: If it was easy everyone would be consistent. ;-)

It is a good approach to follow, Dorie. Adding a little at a time helps us when we have to momentarily backup too.

Pleased you enjoyed it. Thank you Michael.

Andy: Without a meaure of success we do not know when we are hitting the sweet spot.

Thanks so much Mary Jo.

Much appreciated Amanda. Being consistent makes the phone ring!

Stephen: True words. I wonder how many gave up right before they had success. Probably a lot more than we expect.

Debb: You are right about that. If it did not work I would not use it or promote it to/for others.

HI Anita Clark. I am one that doesn't use Facebook nor really get what it's attraction is (personally or for business). Sad, huh?

That said, I do appreciate your Facebook Fridays to get a bit of a clearer picture of why I should like it ...
Have a Great weekend,
Bruce

Hi Anita, having been gone on and off for a while I’ve missed key practices and weekly blogs like this. I’ll need to do the Facebook diligence.

Bruce: For me, it is all about going where I know consumers will be. I know without a doubt they are using FB.

Welcome back Ellen. FB is a good resource when used consistently.

Music to my ears. Thank you Tom.

You betcha Jeff. Have a blessed weekend.

That can be the most difficult part but it is easy to keep going once you find what work for you, Sheila.

Good morning Anita.  Lots of turbulence at the moment for those running Facebook.  It will be interesting to see how it all shakes out.

Thanks Roy. We never know when the feature fairies will notice our content. 

Gabe: As long as they do not shut it down or take away functionality I pay little attention to the chatter. 

M.C. Yes, quieter than normal for sure.

 even though Facebook and Google are fierce competitors, they seem to be in tandem with fresh, original content that creates engagement. Engagement with readers seems to be the new norm.

Interesting point: Find out what works for you (by trying different things/approaches) then continue going back to the well until it is dry or you decide it is time to add something new to your marketing.

In my area it would be when you turn the faucet on and no water comes out. But similar analogy, yes? We just have to keep on doing something, test, rinse, repeat but never stop or that water (clients) stops flowing.

It works like a charm, John. ;-)

Exactly right Corinne. Stopping or get complacent with our marketing should be avoided at all costs.
