What can you post?Post tips on what you learned (i.e. social media, marketing strategies/tips, blogging, online and offline advertising tips ) Post about what your passionate about.

7 Ways to drive traffic to your page: Posting your information in your profile under "website", this is what everyone sees once they click on your unique profile page. Occasionally update your status sharing your link for people to find more information about your business.please note we recommend doing this on very limited occasions Integrate other content that you create and share it in a status update. Every time you record a video or publish an article, post it on your Facebook status. But remember to make sure the content isn't spam my and has true value; always follow the 90/10 rule.ALWAYS FOLLOW:90% information/communicationAND10% marketing.
8 In Social Media....You Develop Relationships, You Present, You Sell, You Grow.Three important tips to remember about social media.Advertising is very different in Facebook.* In regular advertising, it's very direct and very sales oriented. * In social media, people run away from that! Social media is about sharing: * Uploading photos, sharing information, or adding value of some kind.Don't expect massive results in the first 30 days.* it just isn't going to happen. Keep networking and it will grow.
9 SOCIAL MEDIA ETTIQUETE This will make or break your social media experience!You Must Add Value (engage with members). Be authentic, transparent and provide information and be inspirational.Don’t Look at This Form of Marketing As A “Competition”. Look for where & how you can add the most value to the group!Avoid Blatant Self Promotion. You will only become attractive to the marketplace when you genuinely want toand do provide a valuable service. Be Professional. No venting or sharing personal information. (If you want to connect with folksthat way, then create two profiles, one for personal connections and one forprofessional connections.)
10 STEP #3 CHOOSE YOUR TARGET MARKET: Identify the specific market and demographic you want to target.Who is Your Target Market?People Who Want to Make Part Time/Full-Time Income at HomeNetwork MarketersInsurance AgentsStay at Home Moms, DadsTeachersFor the services: people with preexisting conditions, business owner, people that need legal services, financial services (who is your target market?)
11 HOW DO YOU FIND YOUR TARGET MARKET? We are going to teach on how to find your target market thru joining relevant Facebook groups.Go to your Facebook account. You will see a search function at the top of your Facebook profile. (indicated by the little magnifying glass)Type in the keywords you find relevant.
12 You Will Then See a List of Groups and Pages relevant To That Keyword: Facebook is a real bonanza for marketers, because users TELL YOU what they're interested in, through the keywords in their Profile description, the Groups they choose to join, the Pages they choose to "Like", even their posts on their profile wall!
13 Click on "groups" Find a group that has the most members and then select “Request to Join”
14 Select one of the members and then go to their profile Select one of the members and then go to their profile. You can connect with them in two ways.
15 STEP #4 CONNECT WITH PEOPLE You can connect two ways: 1st option: Simply add as friend. (with a personal message to increase the likelihood of them accepting).2nd option: Send them a message and ask them to add you as friend.We suggest to do a combination of both. Why? Because if you are just adding people as friends, Facebook won’t like that and can freeze your account.You goal is to Reach out to 10 new people per day.
16 1st option: ADD AS FRIEND: Everyday go into some of these groups and invite 5 new friends from these target Face Groups, to your relevant Facebook account. (Do not go overboard with friends request). Adding over 5 friends a day can freeze your account.
17 2nd option: Send them a message and ask them to add you as friend. What message do you send?Suggestion: “Hey Lisa, my name is _____, and I really like your website/page. (If you can share specifically what you like about their website or what they posted on their wall, let them know!) Be yourself, be authentic. ALWAYS personalize it!We haven’t noticed that Facebook keeps track of ratios of ‘SENDING MESSAGES” TO PEOPLE. Keep in mind that Facebook Rules are always changing so read their rules.
18 Play It Safe With Facebook Facebook limits the number of friends you can add per day.This number is limited to how many requests are accepted.We recommend to send no more than three friend requests until you get accepted. Each accept allows you three more requests. This is why we suggest to do a combination of both. Adding friend requests and sending messages.NOTE: We haven’t notice that Facebook keeps track of ratios of ‘SENDING MESSAGES” TO PEOPLE. Keep in mind that Facebook Rules are always changing so read their rules.
19 YOUR GOAL: MESSAGE RULES: 3-5 messages per day lifestyle / or adding value3-5 interactions per day likes/comments (just 3-5 quick comments what others posted). If you like what they posted but can’t think of anything to say…simple hit the “like” button on the comments. The more you do this, the easier it gets..have fun and be yourself.It’s like having a 2 way conversation. You can’t just be posting and posting messages. You have to interact with people. It’s like when your sitting next to someone and all they do is talk about themselves! Going for the hard sell..won’t sell. Be creative with your post / use different headings and contentWhen you receive a friend request. Go and read their wall. Be picky!Reach out to 10 new people per day CONSISTENTLY.Soon you will see that you will get friends request.Facebook limits you to 5,000 friends so be picky (look at their photo, read their wall). Be choosy.. Look for: Good Photo?Open and friendly?Do you like their posts? Follow your intuition. We don’t spend a lot of time reading everything. Take a few minutes to read their wall. If you like what you see, then we invite them as a friend.

40 CPC– Which means Cost Per Click CPM – Which means Cost per One Thousand Impression. Every thousand time your ad is shown, you pay a set price.Is CPC or CPM better?With CPC - Facebook doesn’t know if people are going to click and they might lose money by keeping your ad on their spot. They are taking a risk therefore you will pay more money.With CPM- Facebook knows that they ARE going to make money so they can cut down the cost of your ad.
41 How Much Do You Bid on Cost Per Impressions? Facebook strongly recommends bidding within the suggested bid range to increase your ad's likelihood of receiving impressions. For example, if they recommend Suggested Bid: $ USD I select 0.40 cents however, I do have to put more ads out.Do I still receive impressions and clicks?
42 TIPS TO SUCCEED:Once your ad gets approved, stay alert and watch your ads like a hawk to make sure that you’re getting your money’s worth on your ads.Your Goal is 0.10% CTR or higher. If you are not achieving this 0.10% tighten your targeting.How do you tighten your target?go back to your ad and under "interest", "age" be more selective.The key to a successful campaign is to test, modify and recreate.To find out your stats go to your Facebook advertising campaign back office:(select report)
43 What do the percentages mean? This means that I was paying 54 cents for every click. If we only get a 1% conversion, meaning only 1 out of every 100 becomes a lead, that’s still 54 cents a lead. And that’s only 1 out of every 100. Tips to run an effective campaignTweak your ads after 2 days if your click through rate (CTR) is under 0.10%Pause an ad for a couple of weeks if CTR drops below 0.10%Change picture every 7 to 10 days (TEST several pictures to see which one gets your more clicks).Every time you change an advertisement. Facebook has to manually approve it. Take the ad you want to edit and create a similar ad and edit that advertisement. Do one ad campaign for each target market. i.e. One ad for dental, one ad for medical.
