~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~

The stark reality for many agents who are trying to use social media as part of their marketing strategy is they (we) are just not that good at it. That equates to lost time, money, and few if any clients. Sound familiar? Honestly, it does not have to be that way.

Here are are 5 simple rules to follow when marketing on FB...

  • Communicate - Respond to comments, leave a remark on someone else's post or video,  and even tell consumers you appreciate them for liking your information. It's social media so be social! 
  • Join local groups - Be.Active.In.Them. That means sharing without trying to sell your services. Everyone likes helpful. No one likes pushy.
  • Fully inspect the new bright and shiny thing - Before deciding IF you are going to use/implement it, and definitely before you shell out money on it (to include requests to assist with your marketing).
  • Use ads - They are cheap and effective. Learn how to use them to create genuine interest that turns into solid prospects. That may mean you will need to spend a couple of hundred dollars, $20 at a time, until you find a methodology that works for you. Your first FB client will more than makeup for any funds expended on ads.
  • Get out of the box - Both buyers and sellers are on the site. Daily. In your market. For every demographic. Over 2 billion users worldwide. This site is tailor made for real estate marketing. Use it!

Just like Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD are doing over on YouTube Thursdays, 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!

Hi Anita,
I think "Getting Out Of The Box" is so important!  Even using the same forum as so many others, we need to make ourselves stand out some how.

Well said, Wayne!

You betcha Gabe.

Roy: Helping where I can.

Andy: Always a pleasure.

So very true, Carol. I see so many fail because they do exactly what the masses are doing.

My pleasure Cheryl. I hope you see a lot of new activity as a result.

I agree with you 100 %. Think outside the box is the name of the social game moving forward. Try something different. Test, test, test. But as you said, communicate is the #1 thing to be doing! It works!

Thanks for the BT feature, Hannah. 

Katerina: It really is. Sometimes it makes way more sense to zig when everyone else is zagging.

Tammy: I hope others who see this post pick up on what you said. It is a GREAT way to generate biz.

Thanks Jon. I am always appreciative when the feature fairies swing by. 

Michael: It depends on the group. In real estate groups I post real estate related content. In local groups, I provide tips or share articles (typically not my own) that are helpful to the group and meet their guidelines (i.e. homeschool group gets homeschool or local things for kids to do info, Robins AFB and other military related info to the local military groups, etc.). When/if I share my own content in those groups, and consumers follow the link to my site, it is clear I am a Realtor. It works for me...no pressure and definitely no salesmanship. They know what I do for a living and reach out when ready. If they follow my FB biz page, that is where I run biz related ads (listings, promotional pieces, brand awareness, etc.).

Hi Anita

I think those tips are spot on, and not all that difficult to implement. The one thing I need to get better at is being consistent!

Anita, I have done many FB ads, and have yet to capitalize on them, so must be doing something wrong.  I keep trying though.

Come on out, Will. There are plenty of great opportunities on social media to grow your biz.

Jeff: So simple but it is surprising how many still fail at it.

Joan: It helps to have a specific goal that you can target.

Hi Anita! I'm wondering if there is a FB marketing group for Realtors® where they share what has been successful in their FB ads? That would be a great group to be in, for sure! I need to pony up and get on the FB ads - I'm totally inconsistent there!

Have a great day...
