  28. 28. TIPS TO ADVERTISING SUCCESS 1. Create a landing page experience that ties into the advertising and encourages the user to click ‘like’. 2. Longer advertising window - its 100% more effective to advertise with a smaller daily budget over a long timeframe 3. Good bright images of the actors faces - these adverts consistently performed better than generic pictures or poster images 4. Large Image stock - image fatigue requires that we regularly swap images on ads to prevent the from becoming stale 5. Manage your communication plan - talk to the fans you buy - look at their demographics, interests and what they react or ignore on your page, continually adjust your advertising based on this data
  29. 29. Facebook Pages Summary: Pages are for organizations, businesses, or bands to broadcast information in a more official manner to anyone that wishes to connect with them • Features: Photos, Events, Links, Likes, RSS Updates • Privacy: Any interactions with Pages are accessible by anyone on Facebook. Anyone can LIKE and join Pages. • Pages are very flexible in nature - applications and widgets can be added to enhance the user experience.
  30. 30. Facebook Groups Summary: Groups are for people with shared interest to communicate. Anyone can create a group. • Features: Photos, Chat, Events, Docs • Privacy: Interactions with Groups are limited to the current settings of the group. Members must be added to the Group by other members. • Great for smaller organization wherein privacy of the content is at focus
  31. 31. Facebook Events Summary: Events are great for organizing upcoming gatherings making it easy for people to make up their minds • Features: Photos, Videos, Links, Timezones, simplicity, quick to setup, easy to invite friends, can be used to engage people on Pages, posts on the wall are ranked after activity not chronologically • Privacy: admin can change whether everyone can join the event or if they need to be added • Events are great for gatherings and people can upload images/ videos from the event to spark up a discussion.
  32. 32. Golden Rule for Page Management “You don’t want people to spend too much time on the Page, as opposed to sharing it. They should look at Timeline as a distribution point, as opposed to a destination.”
