This is one of our client’s company fan pages, “Bee Window”. As you can see he has a great cover photo, filled out all of his company information in the “About section” with a link to the company’s website and posts are driving people to the website as well.
Simply put in the necessary information and hit “get started”. There is some additional information on this page that you can go through on your own…we will be sending you this PPT after the webinar.
use the app tab space to create landing pages for different offers, sweepstakes, request a quotes and create status updates that drive viewers to those app tabs
Images are KEY for status updates…only about 3% of your status updates are being seen on your fan’s newsfeeds so when they are seen, you want to make sure your posts are engaging and eye-catching. Posting polls and questions are a good idea also.
It’s important to take advantage of the app tab capabilities on your timeline..for Surefire Social I have been creating registration pages for all of our monthly webinars as app tab pages and then creating status updates to drive them to the page…on average, since I’ve been doing this we have gotten between 15-20 registrants solely on Facebook.
After you have successfully created and optimized your fan page, now it’s time to advertise. Like we said before only a very small percent of your posts are being seen by your fans and the only way to change this and increase your “Likes” with quality fans is to advertise.
Now that we’ve gone over the different types of ads, let’s go over how to upload your entire database of contacts right into Facebook!
We’re basically showing you step by step how to do this so if after the webinar you’re trying to do it on your own and are confused, you can simply look at this PPT and it will walk you through the process.
The uploading process could take up to 24 hours depending on the size of your database, so you’ll have to sign into Power Editor and keep checking the status.
We’ll be showing you a few examples of ads we’ve created for clients and Surefire Social shortly.
We showed you how to upload your database into Facebook so you can target your ads to those who are already familiar with your brand, but you can also target your ads in many other ways. Geo-targeting is great for local businesses who only serve clients in their local areas. You don’t want to target fans who aren’t able to use your services.
Now the most important part of advertising is probably analyzing the results of your ads and seeing what ads are successful and what aren’t. You’ll be able to see everything from the number of people your ad reached to the number of people who click on your ad and make an action (like your post, like your page)
You can actually export your insights and see the analysis on each of your posts…this is especially helpful when you are trying to see what posts got negative feedback (people hiding your posts from their newsfeed)
You can also go into Google Analytics and see how many referrals you get from Facebook…at the bottom here you’ll see a URL of a blog post that I promoted on Surefire Social’s Facebook page. In just one month, that specific article brought 428 viewers to our site! Comparing this to other blogs that we’ve posted and promoted without using Facebook advertising only saw 10-12 visits this month.
