Is Your Church Social – Part 12 – Facebook – Stealth Church Marketing

The internet can be a great resource for both online and brick and mortar businesses. With some time and effort focused on marketing you can attract hundreds, thousands, or many more customers. One of the best sources of internet marketing is Facebook. Just remember that Facebook marketing is like any other form of advertising: some things simply do not work. A few examples of activities to avoid are using your wall purely for advertising, harassing people on their own walls, sending people invites to many groups or applications, posting content multiple times per day, and spamming people repeatedly to your group. Even though it can be tempting to focus entirely on advertising on your Facebook wall remember that people have also joined your group to be part of a community. Aim for about 1 out of every 10 updates to be advertisements. For everything else work on answering questions, talk about upcoming events, let people know when new or preordered products arrive, and be social with your customers.

They don’t mind seeing your website if you provide them something of value, so why not give it a go. Don’t continuously share business related posts with your target audience. While some people might wish to read these kind of details frequently, others will find it rather dull. You can write about your personal/company milestones. You can for example let your subscribers find out about your sales and the introduction of brand-new products. This is an excellent way to draw attention to particular products while producing a great image for your brand. Enjoy with your Facebook marketing. This may seem like a strange suggestion, but it’s crucial. A great deal of people see Facebook marketing as a major job. It is, however your tone should not come across to serious. Make your Facebook content page special. People have the tendency to like exactly what they think is “out of reach.” Why not try to provide something useful to your audience to give them an incentive to “Like” your Facebook page. This is a win-win situation for anyone. Some companies have actually provided complimentary products just for a page “Like” e.g. Discount vouchers. Always ask questions on your page so you can learn even more about your audience and exactly what they like and do not like, ask questions to spark conversations and maintain a good level interaction. The most fundamental part of posting on Facebook is developing long-lasting ties with potential customers and other users. Ensure that you offer devoted customers special offers. I hope after reading this article you can see that Facebook marketing is simple. It is not going to make you a ton of cash overnight but after a few months it will pay off, just be patient and consistent with your efforts.

Step 3: start your very own group. You can do this by going to the group icon on the bottom of your page, click on it. In the upper right hand corner click on “Create a New Group”. Create a group name and fill in the rest of the info with a detailed description. Add a good Group photo that focuses on the group name and description. Make sure you put in wall post and start discussion topics. Step 4: Start adding friends. To do this look up in your FB (Facebook) search box for a specific name or keyword and start adding friends. Try searching for your target market in this field. Add friends daily, after they have confirmed you, go back to your group and invite your new friends to join. Add something new to your group every day whether it be a post, topics starter, or a new link for your latest article.

It also includes ensuring your page’s followers that your page is active. You have to constantly post relevant material. This is so your page followers will remain interested and open to whatever you have to offer. This allows your page to gain a following. You’d be able to reach your desired audience. You also get to reach those who haven’t liked your page, since Facebook tailors their recommended pages to users’ interests. Aside from constant page updates, you also have to be active in responding to messages. Facebook’s Messenger application allows easy interaction between page owner and potential customers. It is wise to make use of this since Facebook displays pages’ level of activity in responding to messages. This could either encourage or discourage customers to make contact (and henceforth, conduct a transaction) with you. Once you’ve got your page all set up, you can also boost your posts’ visibility by paying for your posts to get boosted. This will make your posts appear more often on the Facebook timelines of those who could potentially be interested in your product/service making transactions all the more possible.
