click the link at the end of the Slideshare
1. Vanessa Lewis, Social Catapault
“Get into the minds, and hearts, of your target
audience. Put yourself in their shoes…what
do they want and need in terms of relevant
information, ideas, inspiration
and entertainment? Notice what they respond
to and tailor your content accordingly.”
2. Andrea Vahl, Andreavahl.com
“Managing a Facebook page happens best when
you participate both on your Page and on the
Pages of others. Make sure you are replying to
comments or at least acknowledging comments
with a Like. Then also watching the Pages of
your community members.”
3. Mark Schaefer, Businessgrow.com
“Consider "engagement" strategically. It is not a
goal in and of itself but a tactic that leads to
awareness, connection and eventually loyalty.
Engagement comes at a cost, both in terms of
time, attention and content creation resources
so consider that engagement needs to support a
metric for the business.”
4. Emeric Ernoult, Agora Pulse
“My number 1 tip for managing a Facebook page
is to understand that this will require the same
amount of time and efforts as it takes to build
and nurture a "real life" network: - it will not be
great overnight - you'll have to give a lot first
before you can expect to receive - you have to
invest in maintaining the relationship alive.”
5. Scott Ayres, Postplanner
“My #1 tip for managing a Facebook page is to
be human. No one likes to follow a page that
never responds or responds with a
regurgitated answer over and over. Call people
by their first name and give them the respect
they deserve.”
6. Robert Caruso, Bundle Post
“If you're not paying to play
there's little to manage.”
7. Aaron Lee, PostPlanner
“Sometimes it’s easy to forget to post daily. The
way we do it for our Facebook page is we plan
and schedule our content calendar with a variety
of content 2-3 weeks in advance. By doing so it
helps us to save time, focus on building quality
content and most importantly focus on getting
social and building an authentic relationship with
our fans.”
8. Joshua Parkinson, PostPlanner
“You MUST continue re-posting your evergreen
blog content on your Facebook page. Each time
you re-post an evergreen article, it's reaching fans
who've never seen it before -- and thus sending
new traffic to your website. So that's my #1 tip for
managing a Facebook community -- to not be
afraid of posting the same content multiple times
on your page.”
9. Christian Karasawitz, Christiankonline.com
“Building a community on Facebook isn’t a one-
way street.
By taking the time to connect with your audience
through discussions on posts or engaging with
them to find out why they came to your page and
how you can help them.You can start to build a
loyal following and strong community presence
on Facebook.”
10.Francisco Roles, SocialMouths
“Use Audience Insights to learn more about your
own community
I think the best way to manage a Facebook page is
to start by learning more about who its members
are. I mean, beyond the demographic data. This
might sound a little “basic” but you’d be surprised
to see how many community managers fail to take
the necessary time to understand who they’re
talking to.”
11. Mike Gingerich, Tabsite
“You can't be all "selly sell" (Chris Brogan speak)
on Facebook. Users are on Facebook mostly to be
entertained. So to connect with them you must
entertain. The more you connect, the more they
engage, the more they will see your other posts
that click through to your website and apps, and
the more likely they will be to click through and
go! Do NOT overlook the need to connect and
entertain on Facebook. It's the gateway!”
12. Ian Cleary, Razor Social
“Pay for advertising on Facebook.
We pay our email marketing tool provider to
email our email subscribers; we pay Google if
we don't rank organically for content so we
should pay Facebook for increased reach of
our posts. ”
13. Michael Todd, xeeme.com/michaelqtodd
“Talk regularly on the pages of other businesses
in your niche and/or locality.
This will put your brand in front of the people
you want to connect with and be seen by and
you will only be a click away from getting new
business. Be fun, friendly and educational and
you will have great success with this strategy.”
14. Hugh Briss, Social Identities
“The power of social media is not in selling
directly but in inspiring and motivating others to
do it for you. That doesn't mean you only need to
post content your fans and followers will share
but first and foremost, you need a quality
product they can believe in and a solid brand
behind it.”
15. Jenny Brennan, Virtual office Worx
“Running a Facebook page is a full time job. Like
any other community you need a strong leader
who understands the needs of the fans. Define a
vision for your community and you will find it
easier to create and curate amazing content that
people will want to engage with and find value
in!”
16. Pam Moore, Marketing Nutz
“Always focus on the needs of your community.
It is what happens "after the like" that matters
most. Inspire them to connect with you with a
goal of helping them achieve their goals.”
17. Kim Garst, Boom Social
“The #1 tip for managing my Facebook page
starts with a solid content plan. The key to a
content plan is to develop a list of types of
content that you think your ideal customer will
relate to.”
18. Dennis Yu, BlitzMetrics
“Change your setting to be fully open in terms of
letting people comment, tag, reply, and so forth.
Unless you are absolutely vilified, you're opening
yourself to a lot more growth and positive
feedback.”
19. Blake Jamieson, Pool Supply World
“Facebook changes so often - and the changes
are entirely out of the page manager's control.
It's important to stay up-to-date with
platform changes, but even more important to
diversify your points of contact with your
fans.”
20. Brian Carter, Briancartergroup.com
“My number one tip would be to really get to
know who your audience by keeping track of the
engagement rate you get when you post to them.
Divide the likes by the reach. You should get at
least 1%, then try for 3-5%”
21. Liz Azyan, Liz Azyan's guide to
engagement online & research
“The main common thread that runs through any
successful Facebook community is their ability to
create unique and memorable experiences for
their members. Understanding their connection
is not only with you, but with each other and the
wider Facebook community.”
22. Juan Felix, Felix Relationship Marketing
“My number one tip for managing a Facebook
page would be to spend some time to use the
right visuals for your content. You know, as social
visual communication is becoming more
important, you need to search for high quality
content and visuals at the same time. So spend
enough time to find the appropriate visual before
you share an update on your Page.”
23. Zsusa Kecsmar, Antavo Promotion Builder
“We see that our customers use contests and
sweepstakes successfully to build a vibrant
community on Facebook. They deeply involve fans
with a photo contest, or run a light-hearted
sweepstakes where fans can enter with a single
click. A good Facebook contest has multiple, lower
value prizes (so the chance of winning is higher),
allows public voting (so those people who don’t
upload their own entry can participate), and
promoted well”
24. Alex Houg, BlitzMetrics
“Let the community do the work for you.
Promote trusted members to admin, share their
statuses, and elevate them. Public praise and
encouragement shows you have a true two-way
community.”
25. Rosh Khan, SocialRankMedia.com
“You need to be STRATEGIC about the TYPE of
content that gets promoted (either through
"Boosts "and/ or Page Post Engagement ads). For
us, the trick is to determine if your content falls
under one of two categories -- it's either
ENGAGING or it's for BRAND AWARENESS.”
26. Jon Loomer, JonLoomer.com
“Experiment with publishing at non-peak times!
I’m finding that I get the most reach and (most
importantly) engagement from posts that are
published in the middle of the night my time. My
theory is that due to less competition, my content
is less likely to get filtered out, resulting in
reaching more people. ”
27. Keri Jaheing, Idea Girl Media
“Focus On Your Target Market
This may sound so simple. We all imagine our
ideal customer reading our posts and loving
(liking) what we send out into their Facebook
news feed. For the small to medium sized brand,
it is a bit more difficult. And even harder still
for the start up and solo entrepreneur. It takes
investment of time and money to attract your
ideal target market to your Facebook Page!”
Just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to all the
social media experts that shared their practical
tips for managing a Facebook page.
Wow! Now that’s a lot of value crammed into one
post. To read the full article
