Facebook is changing ~ rapidly. New features are being added daily, organic reach is on the decline, "pay to play" is becoming the norm and engagement is everything!

The key to success on Facebook comes down to two things:

1.) Attracting the right group of people and creating authentic relationships by getting to know the people that "like" your pages.

2.) Nurturing those relationships thoughtfully before attempting to leverage them into evangelists and customers.

Learn how to use Facebook wisely to market your business and sell more of your art work, creative products and services to people eager to support you.

  3. 3. Facebook Marketing 101 You’ll understand the difference between a profile page and a fan page and why and when you want to choose one over the other Why it’s better to post multiple times throughout the day and the best of time of day to do so. Learn the top three ways to create engagement with your friends and get your posts shared When it’s okay to offer your work for sale and why your followers will want you to! What’s the fastest way to find targeted followers Get a clear understanding of the new “timeline” feature on Facebook and how it can used to maximize your exposure and increase sales.

  5. 5. Things to remember Name of the game is engagement Content is King, but Engagement Is Queen #1 thing all of your posts should have ~ photos Craft your posts using a narrative formula style. Actionable tips are the easiest to write. 2nd most important element is replying to reader comments
  6. 6. Pros & Cons of Facebook Pros: Very little customization required, quick to set up, you can feature photos & videos. Offers affordable advertising testing options. Encourages engagement though live chat, photos, video and post sharing. You can create private groups, events & grow your mailing list. Perfect for creating, nurturing and growing relationships. Cons: You have wait for people to accept your friend request before you can engage with them.
  7. 7. Facebook First Steps If you plan to launch a business page decide what image you want to project to your audience and not just visual, tell your audience what are you about and what do you stand for? Begin developing your graphics, mainly a cover image, (create several so can rotate them) Get crystal clear on who want to invite to join your page. Do a target marketing assessment to help you define your audience.
  8. 8. Facebook First Steps Put plenty of thought into your messages before publishing your posts Suggestion: Share tips with your followers! They are the easiest to write and your audience will not only appreciate them, they’ll respond to them and ideally share them with their followers Don’t forget to include visuals. Either create your own if you’re good with a camera and have access to image editing software or source them from the internet. See resources page for more info.
  9. 9. Personal Profile Page Profile Photo Must use your personal name, not a business name Cover image that can be changed
  10. 10. Do’s & Don’t of Successful Profile Pages Don’t brand your cover images with any promotional messages or contact info. Do rotate your cover image so that you rank higher in the news feed. Don’t directly ask for money or promote your services everyday. Do share, provide value, connect, comment, engage and inspire your followers
  11. 11. Do’s & Don’t of Successful Profile Pages Don’t forget about your followers. If you have to miss a few days consider pre-scheduling posts the days you’ll be away using a service like Hootsuite or Ping.fm (but use this as a last resort:-) Do offer a blend between marketing messages and personal messages. I recommend 70% personal to 30% marketing Don’t publish ‘text only’ posts Do comment regularly on the pages of your followers
  12. 12. Business Page Benefits You can promote your services daily using a variety of tools like ads, contests & special promotions that can greatly increase user engagement and build brand loyalty

 album cover Engagement Is Everything
  17. 17. Profile vs. Business Page (which is better?) Facebook profiles are for people.
 Business Pages are for businesses. Business Contacts vs. Friends
 Business pages you’re allowed to have an unlimited number of fans or likes. But profile pages top out at 5,000 friends. If you’re trying to build your business, why limit yourself? Business pages can take longer grow, but the benefits are so worth it!
  18. 18. Profile vs. Business Page (which is better?) You can have many business pages, but only one personal profile. This is important for people who have severals businesses or groups they wish to promote. *Search Engine Benefits
 Fan Pages can be a part of your Search Engine Optimization strategy because they are indexed by search engines. Profiles pages are not.
  19. 19. How to create an eye catching Facebook Cover “It’s never too early to make a lasting impression”
  20. 20. Resources Custom Facebook Covers - http://getpaidforyourcreativity.com/ facebookalbumdesigns - $97! Or if you have access to an image editing program like Photoshop for example you can create them yourself. Just make sure to size the overall image to be 851 x 315 pixels in width and height. Another option is PicMonkey - It’s free and on the next pages see my step- by-step tutorial to create a fast perfectly sized Facebook Album Cover. Bonus Tutorial: PicMonkey.com Don’t be afraid to play and experiment with imagery. I encourage you to use your own photography where you can. Or you can explore a stock library like iStock.com. Often you’ll find images for as little as a $1 a piece. Rotate your cover art often, again any activity on your page helps your ranking.

  37. 37. Turning Connections into Cash You must bond with your followers before you attempt to offer anything for them to buy. Focus all of your energy (especially in the beginning) on creating and nurturing the know, like, and trust factor between you and your followers. Pay special attention to your followers posts, read what they are doing, what they are saying and who they are connected to.
  38. 38. Turning Connections into Cash Examples: What are they complaining about or struggling with? What makes them happy? What are they celebrating? Are they planning any trips? Changing careers, starting businesses? Starting a family? Getting married or divorced, buying a house or new car etc? Do you offer anything that will make their life easier, fun, or help them fulfill a dream? Can you offer or create something for them that feels more like a invitation than a blatant advertisement?
  39. 39. Screen shot take at 5:12 p.m. Wednesday June 6, 2012 Use a narrative style, the best way is by providing the reader with an easy to implement tip. Close with a question that requires a natural action Always include an image that illustrates the narrative Respond to reader comments as soon as possible!
  40. 40. This post , just published yesterday is responsible for a new referral Elements that made it work •Created a narrative •Used a photo •Asked a question •Created a call to action by offering a gift & •Provided a link to get it
  41. 41. Conversations Into Cash Step-by-Step If you find that there is a match between what you offer and the people leaving comments on your posts invite them to have a private conversation with you. Reach out directly by sending a private email invitation asking for a few minutes of their time to chat by phone and ask them about their needs. Not everyone will say yes, but that’s not the point. If want to create deeper connections with your followers that lead to ultimately lead to sales it’s important to keep asking. Don’t pitch your products or services on the first conversation, the purpose of the initial conversation is for you to listen to what people tell you they need. As they speak if you uncover you can actually help them ask for an opportunity to have a follow-up conversation where at that point you reveal a suitable solution.
  42. 42. Conversations Into Cash Step-by-Step (con’t) If they say they’re not ready to hear your solution or they wish not to have a future conversation respect that and wish them well and move on. If they say they’d like to hear more prepare your solution in as simple a form as possible and email them to schedule the follow-up consultation. In the meantime keep crafting well written posts to publish on your wall. Remember to engage the reader and encourage comments. Continue responding to the comments and if appropriate invite followers to have an “off Facebook” conversation with you. Make it clear when they say yes that you’re not pitching anything. You just want to ask a few questions about their needs and for you to determine if you can help them. Be respectful of their time and follow-up in a timely manner.
  43. 43. Additional Tips For Using Facebook To Increase Customer Engagement Publish your profile address on all of your print materials, announce it on out-going voicemail message, website and in some instances products. Invite your current customers to connect with you on Facebook. Provide them with additional support, answer their questions, alert them to special offers or promotions and announce special events, classes and workshops you’re hosting. Understand that comments on social media is currency. If people see you engaging, answering questions, and being helpful to your existing customers it will encourage them to want to do business with as well. Start a private group or member forum exclusively for existing customers. Publish extra tips, information and resources in your group.
  44. 44. Start A Customer Appreciation Facebook Group Click here to launch new a group Select a group name and decide if you want it to be an open, closed or secret group.
  45. 45. Tips For Using Facebook Events To Increase Follower Engagement Use Events to create deeper bonds with your followers. Events can be live like a show or a lecture or online like a webinar or Skype chat. Create your Facebook Event well in advance of your actual event date. Comment, reply to comments and answer questions. Provide free tips leading up to the event. Keep your audience inspired Don’t forget to include photos, video (if you have them) and web links if you’re using web based registration page to your posts.
  46. 46. Setting Up Facebook Events Step-by-Step Choose the name of your event. It’s the single most important element because it’s what people see first! Step #1
  47. 47. Decide who want to invite. In most instances your events will be public and you’ll invite everyone your connected to. ! Other times you may elect to invite only a select group of your followers. ! In this instance you’ll need to create lists prior to setting up your event in Facebook. Step #2
  48. 48. Step #3 
 - Ask questions - Respond to comments - Provide free tips - Give them links to preview content Engage with your audience
  49. 49. Facebook Marketing Checklist Decide if you want to set up a Business Page or just develop your personal profile. Make your page an “experience” by using plenty of visuals, narratives, asking questions, increasing engagement and inviting followers to connect with you off Facebook Publish a minimum of two to five times a day and preferably 7 days a week. Mornings or Early Evening seem to the best time to be active.
