How to Use Facebook for Marketing | 4 Helpful Tips and A Free Gift!

How to Use Facebook for Marketing How to Use Facebook for Marketing | 4 Helpful Tips and A Free Gift!Learn how to use Facebook for marketing. There is a lot of practical training out there, and a lot of it is the same message over and over again.

How do you decipher what’s good and what’s not worth your time? Well I believe that there are some unwritten rules to follow when you’re building a business on Facebook.

The first rule is, don’t expect results right away. There are a lot of people that start marketing on Facebook and give up after a week or even a month after they haven’t gotten the results that they were looking for. It takes time to build relationships, and that’s what Facebook is all about. Relationships. So give it some time, great Facebook marketing campaigns can take time to develop.

The second rule is to be consistent. This one goes hand in hand with rule number one. Your consistency will build momentum, and start to give way to the kind of results and lead-flow you desire. Which will then lead to sales and conversions.

The third unwritten rule is to provide value.

There are people all over the place that just simply throw their links up on their Facebook walls, and then wonder why they’re not getting any results. The reason you don’t get any results with that method, is that people are not on Facebook to buy your stuff or join your business opportunity. They are on Facebook to see what’s going on, what their friends are up to, and to let everyone what they are up to.

So your spammy links are probably not even going to register in their sub-conscience. The way to combat that, is to provide something that they might want or something that could help them get what they want. Do you see the difference?

The last rule is to learn and grow as you go. Get started now, and then immerse yourself in everything that has to do with Facebook marketing. Watch webinars, purchase products, and apply these new techniques as you go. This will not only get you out of the “paralysis by analysis” but it will create a shift in your actions. A marketer in motion. You will become the go-to person in your niche.

The best part about this, is that I have a free Facebook training webinar for you to get started. So just click on the link below, enter your best email, and enjoy!

Action plan number one. Create a Facebook fan-page. You will not want to be operating out of your public profile. You might not know this, but Facebook keeps a real close eye on what’s happening on your news feed. And if you are posting a lot of sales links on your profile page, Facebook will find out. Whether it’s from people reporting you for spam, or you’ve raised some flags in their system some other way. You could potentially get your account shut down.

That is what the fan-page was created for. Marketing! So you can market and advertise all you want through your fan-pages.

Action step number two. Promote your fan-page to gain likes and followers. This can be considered as your new contacts list. These will be the folks that you will be marketing to. By creating a fan-page and getting likes and followers, you are establishing a base of potential customers who actually want to hear about your products or services.

Advertising Through Social Media: How to Stand Out From the Herd


Advertising Through Social Media Advertising Through Social Media: How to Stand Out From the HerdWhen advertising through social media, there are some unwritten rules that I see people break all of the time. Things that might be fine to do in a traditional advertising setting, are not going to fly when you start marketing on the major social media web-sites.

Here are a few tips to help you stand out from the crowd and bring potency and effectiveness to your social media advertising campaigns.

Number one. Be yourself, but be engaging. It’s easy to hide behind the computer and create silly profiles to push your message out on. But the more you seem like a real person, the better interaction you’re going to have with your fans and followers. You might be a quiet person in nature but this is your chance to shine. Ask questions, find out what people need, find out what they need help with. Then provide your solution.

Number two. Be consistent with your actions. Create a daily operating routine and stick with it. Social media allows many options for consumers and prospects. So if you are not consistent with your message, you will fall to the bottom of the newsfeed. And no-one will be able to find you.

Tip number three when advertising through social media. Answer all of your notifications and respond to all interactions. Even if it’s just a thank you. People will respond more often. And then you will be well on your way to developing that relationship where your prospects know, like, and trust you.

Social media is a whole different world when it comes to marketing and advertising. These tips should get you started on the right track but obviously there’s more “behind the curtain” so to speak.

Tips for Facebook Marketing | Don’t Get Put in the Facebook Jail!

Tips for Facebook Marketing

Tips for Facebook Marketing Tips for Facebook Marketing | Dont Get Put in the Facebook Jail!Facebook is a great place market your products and services. But there are some practices within the industry that you should steer clear of to avoid the now infamous Facebook jail!

This is where your account status may not be completely suspended but you will have features and privileges shut down on you if you are a habitual violator. And it’s sometimes 30 60 even 90 days before your account can be restored.

Here’s a few tips for Facebook marketing that will keep you out of the Facebook big-house.

Facebook marketing tip number 1. Don’t add too many friends and then send all of your new friends a message about your opportunity. Facebook does not like that. The red flag for them is that you are sending out a bunch of private messages and no-one is responding. This practice is frowned upon.

The correct way to approach this tactic is to keep your new friend requests to a minimum, I would say no more than 15-20 a day. And when you decide to message these folks, don’t hit them up with your link right away. Be social, find some common interests and connect on a personal level. After all, Facebook is a social network right?

Facebook marketing tip number 2. Don’t go joining a bunch of groups and then blast them all with your links. Again, Facebook will see that people are not responding to your spammy posts and shut your features down. A way to avoid this is to be engaging instead of posting your links. Provide value to the group. And be friendly. You are way more likely to get a response if you’re actively engaging the groups with questions, answers, and personality.

The last Facebook marketing tip to avoid the jail is to create and operate out of your Facebook fan-page. Your public profile should not be your main base of marketing operations inside of Facebook. This where so many people get their stuff shut down, by being all crazy with their marketing, and then desperate when aunt Rita won’t join xyz company, and make some sketchy decisions with links and messages.

Again, start marketing with a fan-page. That’s what they are for. The people who end up following you are the ones who want to hear what you have say about your particular niche. Facebook is a lot more lenient to users in this forum. Plus you will have access to all kinds of analytics tools to help you gain more exposure.

I hope that its not too late, and I’ve found you on the outside of the Facebook jail. And if you’ve had the unlucky experience of having your account suspended or looked at by the social media police, these tips for Facebook marketing should get you on the right track.

Definition of Social Media Marketing | And Why Most Fail With The “Dummy” Approach


The definition of social media marketing would be……

Using a social media website as a marketing platform.

Now, that is probably a really dry explanation. But defining an action such as marketing is a complex beast in my opinion. Some folks go to college for years just to learn how to market products and grow businesses. There are many platforms on which to actually utilize the skill of marketing. That’s right, marketing is a skill.

That means that you can learn it.

You can go out and buy one those “dummy” how to books and come away with a basic understanding of marketing. And probably have some successes along the way with your new skill. But the question here, is how to utilize that skill of marketing, in the world of social media.

Marketing on social media can take a lot of trial and error. Some mistakes could even get your social media accounts shut down if you’re not following the guidelines. And believe me, getting your Facebook account shut down for some ill-advised marketing practices is no FUN! I’ve had accounts shut down after spending thousands just to get set up.

That brings me to another point. Your social media accounts are not really yours. It might have your name, your picture, probably your family’s pictures, what you had for dinner last night. A person could really learn a lot about you based on one of your social media profiles. But I’ll tell you this right now, YOU DON’T OWN IT.

I know, it sounds harsh. But that’s reality.

So how do you go about having a successful marketing campaign on social media?

I say study and emulate the great ones. The ones that have seen success. Real success, not perceived success. I’ll admit it. I have not had the success that I’d like in my business. But I know where I’m going, I know who’s already there, and I know what they did to get there.

I’d like to share with you a training video I sat in on.

http://Mattfindley.socialmediainsanity.net/

This webinar blew my mind! I thought I knew how to market on social media. But honestly, I had no idea….

Like I said earlier, social media marketing is a BEAST.

It can make you famous, or it can sink your ship.

The important thing is though, make sure you are aligned with the best. Hang out where they hang out. Do what they do.

Another social media marketing tip…. I found a bunch of them in one place. The best Facebook marketers, the best Youtube marketers, the best Instagram marketers, the list goes on. But they are all spilling the beans, just like in the previously mentioned training video.

So click through, enter your best email and I’ll talk to you soon.

Starting a Social Media Marketing Business

Starting a social media marketing business is a great decision. There are some important things to keep in mind that I would like to share with you before you get started.

The first thing that you absolutely must have is a strong product that you either use or have had success using. Social media requires you to be social with your potential prospects, so if you don’t really believe in what you’re selling, neither will anybody else.

Your message will fall flat right out of the gate.

The second important factor for starting a social media marketing business is to keep in mind that it’s going to take some time. You’re not going to jumping out on Facebook with a million fans that know, like, and trust you over night. It takes time to cultivate those relationships.

Think about it, do you trust the guy standing in line in front of you at the grocery store? Probably not…

The same rules apply to social media marketing.

The third thing I’d like to add to this list for starting a social media marketing business is also what I would consider the UNBREAKABLE RULE…..

Provide value.

Provide value to the marketplace. You will always get back what you give. So if you’re putting out a bunch of pitchy nonsense, then that’s probably what you’re going to get back in return.

If you provide value and solutions to peoples pain and problems, then you will be seen as the leader. A leader that folks are going to be more apt to spend their hard-earned money with.

So to recap on what to keep in mind when starting a social media marketing business. Choose your product wisely, it’s going to take time to build up some momentum, and the golden unbreakable rule, provide value to the marketplace.

Top Social Media Marketing Sites

Social media websites are a great place to market your product or service.

There are a ton of them out there to choose from, here is a list of the top social media marketing sites on the internet. (In my opinion of course) And why I think you should be marketing on them.

The number 1 social media site would be Facebook. DUH. Here’s a few reasons why I would rank it number 1. It is the second most visited website on the entire internet! That is some major traffic. It’s even surpassed Google a couple of times I think to take over that number 1 ranking. So to skip it for something else, you’d be leaving major potential for sales and sign-ups on the table and that would be a huge mistake!

The number 2 social media site I would choose is Youtube. Now you might be thinking that Youtube is just a video uploading service, or where you spend time “researching work stuff” lol. But there’s actually a very user friendly social media side to it as well. Where you can have a friends list, a following for your channel, and integration with your Google+ account. Youtube has a major upside in that if you are using it to market, your videos automatically get blasted out to your friends and followers, and your videos can potentially rank in the actual search engines for free! That is pure marketing GOLD if you ask me.

The number 3 social media I would recommend utilizing is Twitter. Now Twitter can be a pitch-fest, and full of straight up garbage and nonsense. But when used to drive traffic to your website or capture page, a compelling offer posted on Twitter can be a great way to get folks off of the pitch-fest and focused squarely on you! And if you’ve got an offer that converts, those visitors can become valuable prospects and customers.

Let’s face it, social media is now a major part of our lives. I know very few people outside of my grandparents that aren’t on Facebook.

It’s engrained into our society.

Social media is here to stay as long as the internet doesn’t go anywhere.

But remember, social media is just that. Social! It doesn’t work to just throw up your offer on everybody’s inbox and expect the sales to start flowing in. It takes time. You have to build relationships…..

Now I have some incredible training on how to effectively use social media for marketing without blasting your friends and family on why your juice is better than what they can get at Walmart. And I’ll send it to you on the next page, but all that I ask from is your best email, so that I don’t send it out into cyberspace to float around not helping anybody.

How Does Online Marketing Work?


How does online marketing work you ask?

Let me give the outline of online marketing in an easy to understand, non-techy sort of way.

First you have to choose a product or service that you would like to market. This can be a physical product, an e-book, a business opportunity, or even yourself. The choice is entirely up to you.

Once you have selected your desired item, the next step is to identify your target market. These are going to be the folks most interested in, or can benefit from your product or service.

When these two things are in place, you are now ready to start marketing!

To market your product or service online you must first have a website that lists your product or service as available for purchase. This can be on listing sites such as amazon.com or craigslist.com. Or a website you’ve created yourself, or one that’s been provided to you by the company or organization that you’re affiliated with. Whatever it is, you will need the website link. That’s the little box in the corner of your browser that starts with http:// or www.whatever.com.

You can now take that link and blast it out all over the internet.

Remember when I said to identify your target market, this is where that comes in to play.

A lot of people miss this step but it is crucial to the question, “how does online marketing work?”

You need to find out where this target market hangs out on the internet. It could be a Facebook group, it could be an Instagram group. It could be on Twitter, in book-clubs, on website forums. The point is, is they could be all over the place. Do some research, Google your product, see what comes up. You might be surprised on how easy they are to locate!

Now for a more in-depth training on how to actually leverage Facebook, Youtube, Blogging, and other popular social media websites for marketing….

Online Marketing Campaign Ideas


There are lots of different ways to market your product or service online. Here is a list of some of the more effective ways that I have found to launch my marketing campaigns.

Social Media. There are probably millions of sites out there now where you could get “social” with other folks that you have in your personal network within those social media sites. But you’ll want to focus on the major ones. The ones that get a boat-load of traffic, I.E; Facebook, Twitter, Linked-In, I’m sure you get the point. These are the most reputable sites online. Now to start networking on these websites you’ll need to create an account if you don’t already have one, follow the guidelines and start connecting.

This way can actually prove to be a little slow but the results can definitely pay off in the long run.

Now if you’re looking for some faster results, most social media websites offer a paid marketing option to get your offer in front of the masses without building any kind of relationships. These also can be highly effective but the cost will be based on your particular pre-set budget for each campaign.

The next marketing campaign idea I would suggest mastering is Video Marketing. There are a lot of video uploading sites out there but you’ll want to avoid most of them because all you’ll really need is the big one, Youtube!

There are several different ways to market inside of Youtube but they will all require you to make a video. Once you upload your video of your particular product or service, you can choose to promote it by paying Youtube to put your video out there, or you can optimize your video to rank in the search engines.

These online marketing campaign ideas are only a drop in the bucket to what’s actually available on the Internet. A successful online marketing campaign idea is one that you are going to see through to the end.

There’s a wrong way to do these things and if you don’t have the proper training and community to learn from, you will burn out fast. Trust me, it’s information over-load city out there.

Luckily for you, I have the perfect solution.

It’s an invitation to an elite community of online and offline marketers that are ready and willing to share with you their complete arsenal of marketing secrets so  that you can avoid the hiccups that every unseasoned marketer will undoubtedly face when marketing online for the first time…..

And it’s all in one place……
