Facebook Fridays : Helpful Marketing Tips

 

 

Let's take a look at this Year 2018  Anita Clark will be back next year with great new tips for the New Year 2019

 

There are  little tips on your Facebook Business page do you use them ?

 

One I check often is :Invite Friends

Know friends who might like your Page? (Mine is on the right side of my page yours may be some where else find it )
Help more people discover your Page by inviting friends to like it .A pop up comes up with all the names of people who you know that have not have liked your page  invite them .You will be surprised how many people will respond  and like your page . Reciprocate when asked . It is good to have friends .
 
When checking  analytics I found the more likes you have the higher your Facebook Business page ranks    That is why it is so important when Anita asks us to like each others Facebook Business Page we do so 
 
Anita is really a Wizard  at what she does so let us all be more diligent in helping each other with these likes .
 
Active Rain has a number of icons on the upper right hand corner corner of your page . I have it pictured below . If you see an interesting article hit the Facebook icon to share it on your business Facebook page  There are times I may have to hit the icon  a few times or post it to another account I have a personal and two Business pages    (. I do hope you have a business page and post to it daily)    first to get the picture to show up  (sometimes only if the picture is at the top of the post ) In doing this you have interesting content while also promoting your fellow members .
 
 
For my own post to show up in their best format  I also use the short url link click it then go to the left and a https://activerain.com /droplet//SgDx  will appear copy and post this to Facebook (sometimes you may have to repeat it before it works correctly  )

Let's face it our members write some great articles

Here are examples of  topics your readers may find interesting :

  • Decorating
  • Financing
  • How to prepare a house for showing
  • What to do when  buyers shows up without an agent
  • When is the best time to Buy or Sell a House
  • A Day in the Life of a Realtor
 
 Local Posts and Market Reports often Rank High*
 
Making comments that I was showing houses in a  specific local area highlighted me as an agent that  knew the area . I received questions and answered them . This led to new and past clients contacting me to buy and sell houses in that area .
 
 
Make sure you check and your page.  People may comment .You should be interacting  I had an associate in my office who had someone post on her page that they wanted to sell their house .She never responded She saw it five months later .
 
 
 
There are many clients past and present
who may contact you through your
Facebook Business page .
Be sure to check and connect .

 
Listings are essential . You do not just want to put up only listings your readers can go anywhere for that .
Certainly have listings but try to be creative
Maybe give a short inside or outside video tour with you showing the house be creative . 
Not a long video attention span of the average person is less than two minutes
 
High ranking posts are also:
  • Cooking videos
  • Cute Animal Videos
  • Movie Videos
  • People Love Jokes
 
  You can share  post from your personal page to your Business  page it is better then not posting at all
I have seen agents with Business Pages that have not posted since the Summer
 
 
  I hope you found some of this information helpful 
Anita Clark Will be back next Year

I am glad you stepped in to provide us some great Facebook marketing tips, I always enjoy the tips that Anita Clark shares with us!

Posted by Brian England, MBA, GRI, REALTOR® Real Estate in East Valley AZ (Arizona Focus Realty) 3 months ago

Thank you Hannah Williams . Although I have a "Business" page, I wish I could have a SEPARATE FB page, because 95% of my facebook friends are relatives, friends, class mates that live 5,000 miles away and I KNOW I would not get referrals or business from them.

Posted by Bruce Hicks, Your Lifetime Friend/Helper! (Best Homes Hawaii) 3 months ago

Anita shares some amazing tips Brian England  and will be back next year

Have a Happy and Healthy New Year

Posted by Gabe Sanders, Stuart Florida Real Estate (Real Estate of Florida specializing in Martin County Residential Homes, Condos and Land Sales) 3 months ago

Bruce Hicks I received a referral from a friend in Arizona last year . You can have both a personal and a Business page . You will be surprised where your referrals can come from .

Happy and Healthy New Year

Good morning Hannah - I love your comments.  I have used Anita Clark 's suggestions too.  In my case, B to B, Linked In is best.

Posted by Grant Schneider, Your Coach Helping You Create Successful Outcomes (Performance Development Strategies) 3 months ago

Congratulations on  the featured post. I do not have a business page but am thinking of it

Posted by Gita Bantwal, REALTOR,ABR,CRS,SRES,GRI - Bucks County & Philadel (RE/MAX Centre Realtors) 3 months ago

Posting showings is a great idea to show you know your area.

Grant Schneider I also use Linkedin .Anita is really the Best  and works so Hard to improve our Facebook rankings

Gita Bantwal  Make a Business page and work it .

Mike Baltierra Some agents have their buyers or sellers hold a Sold sign at every closing and post their pictures --   another idea

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD  I cannot come close to what Anita Clark does it was a challenge but fun .

Happy and Healthy New Year

Always good to have an assortment of topics you can touch at any time.  Helps to keep the content fresh in my opinion.  

Posted by Kevin Mackessy, Dedicated. Qualified. Local. (Blue Olive Properties, LLC) 3 months ago

I still miss your movie reviews. I hope you a very rewarding new year Hannah Williams 

Posted by Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS, Tacoma Washington Agent/Broker & Market Authority! (RE/MAX Northwest.) 3 months ago

Kevin Mackessy  I agree glad you do also . What shocks me are agents who do not post on their pages for weeks or even  months at a time .

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS There were not many movies I wanted to see . Now there are a list of good movies I am planning on seeing .

Happy and Healthy New Year

Hannah I have to confess, I am horrible when it comes to using FaceBook.  Basically I go on to see if my daughter in-law has posted any new pictures of my granddaughter and that is it

Hi Hannah,  Great article, but I have a question.  Where did you post comments about showing properties in certain areas that led to people contacting you?

Posted by Elyse Berman, PA, Boca Raton FL (561) 716-7824 CRS, ABR, GRI,ePR (Best Connections Realty, Inc.) 2 months ago

Elyse Berman  I posted in Active Rain . Then I copied my post to Facebook and Linkedin but I think basically they found me on Google . The more places you post your blog the more exposure you get .. but to be honest I think it was Active Rain I still get calls from older AR  posts and newer ones . Never doubt the power of Active Rain

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-953-8818 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) 2 months ago

You know, Hannah, I read this while on the go when you wrote it and TOTALLY forgot to comment when I got back to my computer! You knocked this out of the park - you are spot-on about everything too.

I'm terrible about checking daily - there is just so much going on! Thankfully, my sphere knows the best way to grab me is via text or phoning me and they don't PM me too often! LOL

Happy Friday!

I plan to take a Facebook marketing course through Udemy sometime soon. I think I will probably enjoy the analytics once I know what I am doing. Right not it feels like venturing into Mordor.

Posted by Krista Jenkins, REALTOR®, Residential sales and retail & office leasing (Egenbacher Real Estate) 2 days ago

Krista Jenkins, REALTOR®  I hear you it can be confusing. Sometimes it makes my head swim too. The magic is when someone reaches out to us we feel like well we are wearing the ruby slippers
