  • 31. 12 tips to engage fans
  • 32. 12 tips to engage fans
    1. Incite comments by posting questions
    Single most important thing to create activity.
    This is social media, not a web site.
    Fans want to interact. Otherwise, they’ll go somewhere else
    The more comments you get, the more opportunity to go “viral.”
    Test their knowledge with a quiz.
    Keep questions simple, personal.
  • 33.
  • 34. 12 tips to engage fans
    2. Keep it fresh — post daily!
    • Stale content is the kiss of death for a FB fan page.
    • 35. Post at least once a day once you build a decent following.
    • 36. Don’t over-post. You don’t want to appear pushy or annoying.
  • 12 tips to engage fans
    3. Post relevant, quality content
    • Get a good grip on your fan demographic and focus on it.
    4. Stay casual
    • Yes, this is business communication, but the tone should stay upbeat, casual, and light. Don’t come off as stuffy and proper. Nobody wants to hang out with a stuffy, proper business!
  • 12 tips to engage fans
    5. Post photos!
    • Cliché, yes, but a picture IS worth 1,000 words.
    • 37. Photos will draw attention to your post on a text-heavy wall. (The History.com post could use a photo!)
    • 38. People like to browse photos.
    • 39. Include photos of employees (with a short bio), store and community events, and more.
    • 40. Encourage fans to post photos.
    • 41. Use descriptive language in photo captions. This will help drive Google results to your page.
  • 12 tips to engage fans
    6. Upload videos
    • A video is the next-best thing to being there for a fan.
    • 42. Look into purchasing a Flip Video camcorder. You can get them for around $150. Check out their web site at www.theflip.com
    • 43. Keep videos short (one minute or less), funny, and interesting.
    • 44. Create a YouTube channel and start connecting the two.
  • 12 tips to engage fans
    7. Use good grammar and spelling
    • This is more a way to not DISengage fans.
    • 45. You can be casual without being incorrect.
    • 46. Your credibility is at stake. Poor grammar and spelling appears unprofessional and lazy. Not a good combination!
    • 47. If you’re unsure, have someone else proof your post before sharing it.
  • 12 tips to engage fans
    8. Use links liberally
    • Relevant links increase your Google search visibility and rating.
    • 48. Fans appreciate the fact that you have gone to the trouble of gathering information of interest to them.
    9. Include community content
    • For a member Co-op, this is essential because your community is your customer base, and vice versa.
    • 49. Add an “Events” tab to promote store happenings and local events.
  • 12 tips to engage fans
    10. Respond to comments quickly and thoughtfully
    • Fans want to believe that someone is “manning the store.”
    • 50. They are less apt to leave a comment if they believe there’s no one there to respond.
    • 51. Don’t patronize your fans with company rhetoric. Be personable, helpful, straightforward, and transparent.
    • 52. Keep it positive.
  • 12 tips to engage fans
    11. Reward FB fans with exclusivecontent, contests, and coupons
    • Fans will bore quickly if they feel there is no value in remaining a fan.
    • 53. FB fans deserve the “insider” treatment. After all, they did choose to like your page. Give them something in return.
  • 12 tips to engage fans
    12. Go easy on the “hard sell.”
    • A small percentage of FB fans respond positively to aggressive selling.
    • 54. Slip in sale or inventory information between other types of posts.
    • 55. Don’t treat FB like a traditional type of advertising. People expect to be sold on TV and radio, and in the newspaper — not on FB.
    • 56. Use coupons to draw customers into your store. They will probably buy something else once they get there!
  • Fan page dos and don’ts
  • 57. Dos and don’ts
    Do…
    • Engage your fans with questions and relevant content

    • 59. Update your page often — at least one a day during the week — with interesting content
    • 60. Use a relaxed, casual tone in your posts
    • 61. Use good grammar and spelling
    • 62. Provide exclusive content and specials for your FB fans

    • Let your page become stale
    • 63. Let your page become overbearing
    • 64. Use a business-like or stuffy tone
    • 65. Let your page become text-heavy
