~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~

Facebook has been cracking down this month on what it deems "inauthentic behavior" by deleting pages and groups that it deems untrustworthy. If your page was taken down it is most likely because FB thought it was misleading consumers. I have not heard of any individual real estate pages that were deleted as much of the activity has centered around non-U.S. accounts but it can certainly occur. Hopefully your page is still intact!  

Facebook is also in the process of redesigning their mobile interface. Coming soon is an improved navigation bar and a more robust local business browsing option. Stay tuned as these enhancements are sure to improve the user experience which typically means more time on the site (which could mean more opportunities for you to be found).

Did You Know...Facebook is blocked in both China and North Korea. Reaching potential real estate consumers in either of those countries will require another approach. ;-) 

Is the information found in the About section of your Facebook profile current and correct? We want consumers to contact us at a good working email address, via a current phone number, or through our main website. If one or more of these contact methods is wrong or outdated, a potential client may never reach you. Take a few minutes and ensure your information is right...it is that important! 

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, share, reciprocate, and enjoy Rainers!

Will: I have you on the list for next weeks article. ;-)

I appreciate the comps, Debe. Like you, I try to share something on this platform each week that helps others. I am glad many find the FB tips helpful.

Diana: That is exactly how this is intended to work. Visiting each others pages and possibly gaining new referral partners through the process.

I hear ya, Robin. Many do their thing and do not worry about the "stuff".

Anita, thanks for the Facebook Articles links.  I have just about given up on FB for marketing.  Lots of likes, no actual contracts.

John: It may just mean your approach has been wrong. What have you tried?

Gabe: I know you are very active on social media. ;-)

You bet Eva. It only takes a few minutes to update but a few seconds to lose a potential lead.

Doing my bit to help out, Amanda.

That's news to me!!!

Facebook is blocked in both China and North Korea. Reaching potential real estate consumers in either of those countries will require another approach.

Hi Anita

Was not aware about Facebook being blocked in China and North Korea. I had heard about some pages being taken down. It's so hard to keep up with all the changes as well as all the information available to help us be more successful on FB. You weekly post is a blessing.
