~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~

If you have been utilizing Facebook as a secondary source of new leads this year (you have, right?), you know there have been a slew of changes that have both helped and hindered your progress. That is to be expected with any platform that strives to provide consumers with a social experience. The key is to adapt and find a way to continue marching forward. That is what I do and I know you can too.

If you are committed to using FB as part of your marketing strategy in 2020, what is your plan of attack going to look like? No specifics, just general information, to help others who may be struggling to find their path or who may be on the FB fence. Do share...

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!

Wouldn't it be simple if we all had the time to implement the strategies we read about that we believe can help our business model? You have some good options when there are just not enough hours in the day...your assistant (if you have one) could do the dirty work of learning the process or you could hire a virtual assistant (there are several here in the Rain) who can manage this sort of thing for you.

With 2020 on the horizon, it is time to put the excuses away and take the necessary steps to improve your social media (and FB specifically) marketing approach and plan. Happy reading!

Anita, as always you share the best and I have given FB little attention so to speak but have received referrals from it...I'm adding a lot more mailers to my list.

You betcha Raymond. I hope many Rainers visit and you find new referral partners as a result.

Another good marketing method that I bet brings you new clients, Ginny.

Hi Anita!  I am certainly taking my use of social media, particularly FB to another level...

I am building up my friend base, posting well thought out writings by me, lots of live videos, and really just focusing on touching/inspiring others with my stories...

Thanks for writing!

Always love your posts. I've toyed with Facebook ads this past year but will be less focused on that next year. Instead, I plan to be more engaged and committed to interacting with my audience. Being active with others seems to be more productive than just getting an ad in front of people.

Late to the party but, it's been an insane week in real estate, Anita!

As to 2020's plans for FB...boy, that's a bit of a loaded question! We actually had our marketing meeting yesterday and I have everyone working on SOMETHING major. One of them is doing some serious analysis about boosted posts, dates/times to post and which biz pages are working best for us. We need to weed several of them out and combine some pages. It's just impossible to keep up with dozens of them!

Have a great weekend...and thank you for the weekly FB tips, Anita!

Anita:

One of the things I hope to do is re-read some of your Facebook Friday posts that I've saved, and do more with Facebook ads than I have in the past.

Ken: I hope you come back in a few months and let us know how the live videos are going. Keep up the momentum!

Yep, putting the social back into social media pays dividends. Smart move Stephen.

Debe: I knew you would have a solid plan. I am really making an effort to update some older content.

I have been and still am a fan of FB ads. They are effective for such a small price commitment, Jeff.

Anita Clark Thank you for posting and sharing thoughts on facebook.  In 2020 we are committed to more video as opposed to photos/text.  Of course everyone has been extolling the virtues of video for a long time...we're just a little late to the party.  Our facebook live posts and recorded vids get MUCH more visibility than other posts.

That sounds like a smart choice, Keith.

Debe: Yes, doing well. It has been a busy RE month as well as a lot of family visits. I will be back in the Rain soon.  Thanks for asking. ;-)
