  27. 27. Facebook Groups - Why Create One? • • • • Your very own marketing asset They become committed ―fans‖ You are instantly seen in the role of expert You can invite to events, post updates etc that they will always see (unlike with pages) • Can have groups for buyers – Add on Value • Can protect content from non buyers or from competitors
  28. 28. Facebook Groups for DLRLS • Create Added Value for Certain Courses • Allows individuals to discuss the course with the instructor • Instructor can share exclusive tips, events, articles
  29. 29. How to Create Your Own Facebook Group From homepage Groups – Create Group Window will appear • Create a group name • Add members • Select Privacy
  30. 30. Group Privacy Types • Secret: Only members see the group, who's in it, and what members post. • Closed: Anyone can see the group and who's in it. Only members see posts. • Open (public): Anyone can see the group, who's in it, and what members post.
  31. 31. More Group Settings • • • • • • Click the cog icon Edit Group Settings Approval? Group Address? Description – add how they can join if a private paid group Posting permissions
  32. 32. Promoting events to your group • • • • • Events - Create Event Invite All Members Can add an image for an event Can then share the event & even advertise the event All their friends will see they are going (viral marketing)
  33. 33. Getting Group Members • • • • Mass email is fastest Promote in other sources, Fanpage, LinkedIn etc Maybe give away a freebie to join? They are a massive marketing asset once in your group!
  34. 34. What to post to your group • • • • • • Blog updates (networked blogs can be set up to post automatically) News in the fitness arena Discussions Encourage people to ask questions in your area of expertise Ask for reviews, testimonials etc Respond quickly to group members but always ask for other people‘s opinion too
  35. 35. Posting to Facebook – Do’s and Don’t DO • • • • • Keep posts short & sweet – Posts with less than 100 characters get more engagement. Why do you think Twitter is only 140 characters! Answer questions & respond to posts – Your page is not a walled garden! Respond to your followers & be personal. Ask questions & ask for feedback – The best posts on Facebook pages tend to be questions. Ask them often & listen to what your users are saying. Participate in the conversation – Customers appreciate business owners who take interest. Provide helpful links – Be sure to help educate your fans, not just promote your products.
  36. 36. Posting to Facebook – Do’s and Don’t DO • • • • • Follow thought leaders – Find people in your niche & follow them — and make sure to interact with them & their followers. Run Promotions – Offer specials, coupons & limited time offers. Keep Customers Informed – If your centre is going to be closed, let everyone know ahead of time. Post Photos – As a local company post pictures of your business & employees. People love to recognize someone around town that they saw online. Say Thank You – Thank your followers & fans often. Make them the center of your focus
  37. 37. Posting to Facebook – Do’s and Don’t Don’t • • • • Over post – Only post as often as you can get good engagement. Excessively self-promote – I go by the 90/10 rule: 90% of your posts should be fun & informative, 10% can be promotion. Use Bad Grammar – Make sure you don‘t have any grammar errors or misspelled words in your posts. The ―Grammar Police‖ won‘t forgive you! Be Shy – This is your opportunity to speak directly to your customers. Be outgoing & engaging.
  38. 38. Posting to Facebook – Do’s and Don’t Don’t • • • • • Overshare – Don‘t post rants or gripe about employees or customers Some things need not be on Facebook! Talk Politics or Religion Respond Hastily – Remember your messages are public. Well thought out & correct answers are vital Bad Mouth Competitors – You may think the competing burger joint down the street sucks - and they might. But don‘t air your opinions on social media about it….
  39. 39. Facebook Posting • Images • Text • Videos Design your content calendar
  40. 40. Facebook Posting - Images • Images are the cornerstone of Facebook • Why? Because fans love pictures • People are so overloaded with information these days that they naturally gravitate toward things that are easy to consume & absorb • Images are both
  41. 41. Facebook Posting – Funny Images • • • So how should you use funny images? Let‘s take this example of a funny egg photo If you‘re a restaurant with a fan page, this image could be a good opportunity to crack a joke about eggs (pun intended) Be creative, you can always find a clever way to relate a funny image to your niche
  42. 42. Facebook Posting - Funny Images Over Kill?
  43. 43. Facebook Posting – Free Images We use the website • http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/ Or try • http://www.stockfreeimages.com or http://www.stockvault.net • Search by THEME • E.g. Swimming, Running, Exercise
  44. 44. Facebook Posting – Eye-catching Images • I‘m not advising that you just randomly post images to get shares • Images like this can definitely get crazy Likes & Comments. But they have to be unique catch people‘s eyes
  45. 45. Facebook Images – Where to find them FOC Eye-catching Images: • • I love creative designs and unusual ideas – FB Page Pool Supply World – FB Page Edit Images for Tips: http://ipiccy.com/ - Picture Editor or www.picmonkey.com
  46. 46. Facebook Images – With tips • This could be very useful to DLRLS, Create a lot of images with your own tips, then brand the image with your logo. This is a good move because even if your photo gets shared, then your brand goes with it • Adding a tip to an image is simple • Write down the Top 20 most frequently asked questions you get asked, answer the questions with short 1-2 sentence answers (these are your tips) • Add the tips to your images
  47. 47. Facebook Posting – Text, Questions Ask Questions • • • • • • • • • • • Questions are at the top of the list for text content because they generate engagement. What‘s the best kind of question? Short, simple & to-the-point! Here are some examples: Gym or Pool? Spinning or Running? Football – Indoor or Outdoor? Multiple choice questions like this are great because they give people choices — and make them more likely to answer. Wouldn‘t you rather take a multiple choice test than an open ended question test? Multiple choice, of course. Why? Because the questions are easier & quicker to answer. And this is exactly why they‘re more likely to get engagement on Facebook.
  48. 48. Facebook Posting – Text: Quotes • • • People crave a little motivation. They want to learn. Quotes are a simple way to motivate & teach. Use business quotes, success quotes, quotes about diets, lifestyle — the list goes on & on. Below are four ways to get different quotes for your business. Find quotes on: • • • • • Google A Motivational Quote Calendar Quote Apps on your iPhone Seeing a quote on Facebook then saving & reusing it later Just remember not to just steal the quote & not give credit to the person who wrote it
  49. 49. Facebook Posting - Text “Fill in the Blanks” • Fill-in-the-blanks are similar to questions. They are simple & tend to get crazy Likes & Comments Here are some examples: • My favorite gym class is _______________. • Fill in the blank. I laugh every time I think about ______. [You can tell people to fill in the blank] • Have fun with these, but be careful not to leave the blank too open-ended for a potentially bad response
  50. 50. Facebook Posting - Videos • Video is the fastest growing marketing tool • And if you are willing to be in the videos yourself, then you can connect & build trust with your audience faster than any other form of content. • Google owns YouTube - Why is this important? • Because YouTube has the all powerful SEO benefits. It is possible to index videos on the 1st page of Google within days, not months. • This is a HUGE benefit of videos about your business. Do you have a YouTube channel? • What should you create videos about?
  51. 51. Facebook - Posting Videos • • • • Testimonials Happy customer testimonials give social proof to how great your product is. Record your customers talking about your product & how they‘ve gotten results & love it. Here is an example of a testimonial
  52. 52. Facebook - Posting Videos • Education • Teach. Teach. Teach! • Teaching shows you are an authority in your business. It shows you know what you‘re talking about. • Here‘s an example of an ‗educating‘ video
  53. 53. Facebook - Posting Videos • Promotions • Are you launching a new product? Speaking at an upcoming event? • Video is the best way to promote an event, product launch, or your overall business. • There are many ways you can do a promotional video.
