~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~

I try not to assume things in this weekly article but the rumor keeps swirling so it is worth mentioning...Facebook Stories "may" end up replacing the news feed at some point in the future. Here's the dilemma, I bet most of us are not using FB Stories to our benefit (I know I am not). If you are getting good traction from Facebook Stories please chime in and share the low down on how you use them to generate interest, leads, and increase followership. I certainly would love to know and I bet others will too. 

I have been waiting to promote some of your FB pages. Now that spring is arriving, it would be a good time to take the plunge and get your page established. You can literally be up and running in less than 30 minutes. Once created, add the URL to your biz page in the comments below and I will add you to a future FB Fridays article. It really is that easy.  ;-)

PLEASE stop by the 5 Facebook Business Pages below, LIKE their page, and leave a comment, just like Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD do with Youtube Thursdays. It is always nice to reciprocate, so if you are visited, please take a moment and return the favor.

As always, enjoy Rainers!

Thank you for another nudge towards FB, Anita! What is funny is that I was thinking about you the other day - one of my friends 'added to their story' and I received a notification. It lasted about 2 seconds and then disappeared.

Then, I went back to click on the notification to make a comment and realized that you CAN'T make comments or even like those entries. I don't like that! 

As always I will follow your lead but, this stories thing seems a bit ANTI-social to me! LOL

Happy Friday, Anita!

I wonder if it really works in th Real Estate business. Only being visible a short time may not be the right tool to use...so I wonder?

Hi Anita, I'm trying to learn this for Instagram ( Facebook owned too). The way I understsand it,  is the only way to keep the stories from disappearing is to reload them after the "live." But honestly, I'm still not sure. Lol. So darn much to learn. Thanks for this. D

To me as well, Debe. It is a mystery.

Sheila: That is the $1M question. I hear some are using Snapchat to generate new prospects and this would be similar, but am not well enough versed on Stories to give a definitive opinion.

Will: Time to implement some of the things prov links at the bottom of each weekly FB Fridays article. ;-)

That is how I understand it works as well, Debb. I am not real sure how to utilize it to my advantage yet.

Not sure about this either Anita Clark  what has been really working for me has been movies - and starting out with the phrase "let's talk about " 

Happy FaceBook Friday

Anita:

How about a post on Facebook stories? I have done nothing with them. Or perhaps someone who does alot with FB stories will share their wisdom and success on creating them, etc.

That is what I am hoping others will do, Jeff. ;-)

Dorie: Not sure how effective they will be but I know there is an audience for this type of marketing.

Thanks Anita for bringing the FB stories to our minds.

I know they are there, I seldom look at others because it takes an extra click and usually what I see is not of much interest.

I hope someone will enlighten us on best use of stories.

Thanks

Great article, Anita:)  I have a question for everyone:  Do you think your FB Business page should be your name?  For instance:  My FB Book business page is:  Searching For A Home With Beverly Jones.  I'm wondering if I should change it to just Beverly Jones.  Thank you for your input.  Make it a great day!

I hope so as well, John. Hannah has provided good information.

Beverly: Ideally, it should match all your other citations (both local and national) but I know many have not done that with their FB page (me included). I am in the process of adding a new page to solve that issue.

Anita, I post a lot of Instagram stories and then archive them into the different highlights I have set up but, I haven't ever posted a Facebook story. I need to look into that. Had no idea they may replace the news feed. Thank you for sharing this with us.
