~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~

One of the best (and fastest) ways I have found to gain traction on Facebook is to join FB Groups. You can join national groups for exposure and to cultivate referral partners. Local groups will get you name recognition and help you become the real estate professional consumers in your area can identify with and want on their team. Need to know how to do something...you can bet there is a group for "that" too. Cannot find what you seek? Create your own group and invite others to join. Not sure where to start? Check here to find FB Groups you can become a member of.

Now you know...I often get asked how I choose which Rainers to showcase each week. Often I randomly pick ya'll through the roll. On occasion I will do a refresh and choose someone who has already been highlighted. I also periodically add those who comment, email me, or I stumble across while reading a post. You just never know who will show up. Will you be next?

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 the information Rainers!

Exactly what I was interested in Anita Clark our local condo development has a page and someone we do not know who is the administrator. If someone asked a question that they do not like it is deleted. All the answers to their questions have also been deleted.  A group of us want to start a new page where all questions and answers are welcome. 

Happy Facebook Friday

I've left many Facebook groups due to the abundance of posts and distractions they cause when actually to trying to engage consumers.

Have you ever seen someone ask for a real estate broker referral from a group? Do that and recieve 200 comments in a matter of minutes.

I love some of my groups. then there are some that really are full of jerks. Arrogant, smart aleck, rude, condescending. Most are great tho.

Barbara: The list is so varied it is very difficult to not find a group (or several)  that does not meet our needs. If none exists, we should create one.

Janice: Click the link and start searching for local groups. I bet you will find many that have what you are looking for.

Thanks a bunch Wayne.

Love it...find one or start one. Thank you Sally.

Agreed Andy!

Pleased that you enjoyed it, Shirley.

Dorie: So many good options with this SM platform. It is easier than many think to generate leads from.

Happy to help, Scott.

Brian: That makes me happy. Thanks.

The perfect scenario to create one that caters to all interested parties. Smart move Hannah!

Toby: I have seen it too. I try to provide quality information and be less salesy. It works for me.

Scott: I leave those, especially the national ones, where a handful of "mean kids" bully, belittle, and are rude. There is no place for that...anywhere!

Morning Anita!  Thanks for writing!

Like your idea of using FB groups purposefully.  I have dabbled, but not dove in...

Perhaps I will join a new group today!!

Thanks again!

p.s.  I did start a neighborhood group, Four Lakes, Lisle some time ago, and it is starting to gain some traction with 283 members...

I think the business potential can be huge, as I am the "neighborhood realtor"...

Thanks again!

This is good advice. I am active in a number of Facebook groups.

It is interesting that I received over 650 birthday greetings from Facebook friends plus many likes.

Conversations always breed the best and most east transactions in my book. There’s something about the “getting to know you” vibe that just gets it right 7 out 10 times or so.
