~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~

Do you know what the easiest way to generate a steady stream of Facebook leads is?  It is not ads nor is it FB groups, although both should be an integral part of your overall Facebook strategy. It is simply to engage those who make contact with you. Acknowledge those consumers who leave a comment, respond to your private messages, and even seek out those who leave a like. The more "touch" you provide, the better your chances are of creating leads that turn into clients.

Did You Know...According to Gizmodo, there are over 300 million photos posted to FB each and every day. Are your photos standing out from the crowd or just noise in the background?  ;-) 

What's in it for you? If you are zipping through this article to collect easy comment points you are really missing the point. Every week there are 5 new opportunities to get a future referral partner, 5 new pages to check out where you might find something worth implementing on your own page, and a host of fresh ideas via the articles below to build a better FB presence. There is strength in numbers so join this FB tribe so we can all benefit and grow together.

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!

Facebook Articles

As I do every week, this past week I scoured the web to find articles to aid you on your FB journey. There are several gems in the list below that I know some of you can benefit from reading and implementing. Take 15 minutes out of your weekend to digest an article then roll up your sleeves and commit to giving what you learned a long try. Rarely does one-and-done provide the results we seek, especially with social media.

I had only been following 1 of the 5 (my sistah from another motha, Sally K. & David L. Hanson!) so, I didn't comment until I checked out others' FB pages and liked/followed them all!

I agree, it is about engagement. Funny but, I was going to comment about something that Sally does on her page. She posts a photo of a fabulous room and asks what her readers like about that room. I love seeing the conversation that it generates...smart gal!

Hope you're having a fantastic weekend, Anita!

Jump onboard Charles and the results will come.

Sally: As you know, every bit helps.

No doubt about it Joan. They do remember and contact us.

You bet John. Enjoy your weekend.

Dorie: We can't catch prospects if we do not have lines in the water.

I absolutely know that feeling, Tammy. 

Debe: Absolutely a smart move to get engagement by Sally. 

It is easy to do Lanre and there are always new opportunities as a result.

Hi Anita

I think your first paragraph says it all - engagement is the key, not the ads or the boosts, but interacting with those who respond! And, of course, providing information that encourages readers TO respond in some way, or to like your page.

I use Facebook to stay in touch with future clients and past clients.  I also use it for marketing homes.  

It is always interesting to find some new ways to use it.  I am open to learning more.  Thanks for the post.

Good Morning, Anita, Yes Indeed, Facebook ads are good to find leads but not for creating a communication with others. We need also to communicate and interact them using private messages. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for the comps, Diana. ;-)

Jeff: When we get the engagement piece right, everything else will fall in line.

I agree Laura. Tribes are great.

I miss some myself. You are quite welcome, Matthew.

Rose Mary: Definitely good reasons to use FB.

I completely agree. Thanks for the comment, James.

Facebook is getting tougher. There are so many ads now and more things competing for people's attention on FB in addition to the fact that FB limits whose feed we show up on daily. But, we press on.
