  • No one will see your posts
  • Facebook doesn’t work for insurance agents
  • People don’t buy on Facebook
  • Facebook takes up too much time

 

FACEBOOK MARKETING: WINNING

  • Success has to be defined so that you know what you’re shooting for.
  • A Facebook marketing campaign is successful if it leads to sales. Period. My goal on Facebook is to make money.
  • Don’t use other metrics to determine success. Those metrics will rise as you execute a successful Facebook marketing campaign that brings in buyers.
  • If I do not make money, my Facebook marketing campaign failed

 

FACEBOOK MARKETING: MISTAKES

  • Do not be boring
  • Do not keep posting ads
  • Forgetting to add contact info on your page
  • Using your personal profile as your business page

 

SO WHAT WORKS? ENGAGEMENT!

  • The Branning Group has a strong belief in the 20/50/30 rule.
  • 20% is about your business – promoting you, what you want people to know about your business, etc!
  • 50% is the fun stuff, games; caption this, celebrating holidays, humor, and motivational quotes.
  • 30% of the posts are about educating your audience with terms they should know, how-to posts and other advice related to your industry.
  • Let me show you seven strategies that work!

 

GAMES

  • Take your best guess…
  • Caption this photo…
  • Guess how many agents are here with me at the Advisory Group meeting!
  • If I get 10 or more “Likes” I will share the BEST IDEA I learned at the Facebook Marketing workshop I attended this morning

 

INTERESTING FACTS

  • Your fans do not want you to sell to them; but they do want to learn about what you do
  • Do not make these posts “sales-y”
  • Educate your customers so that they can refer people to you
  • If possible, use videos. Videos of you explaining these facts are a great way to connect with your audience!

 

HUMOR

  • Funny photos get the “Likes”
  • You don’t want every post to be about your business; but if you can make fun of yourself it’s a great way to get people to talk about you
  • There are a few rules on funny posts:
    • Keep them clean.
    • Make sure they’re not controversial (or at least too controversial).
    • Avoid sexual and political humor.

 

CONTESTS

Contests are a great way to engage your audience – and expand your audience!

IDEAS:

  1. “Comment to win”
  2. Caption contest
  3. Fill-in-the-blank contest
  4. Photo contest
  5. Refer a Friend

 

TESTIMONIALS

  • If you want word of mouth referrals; sometimes you have to create them
  • Use a fan to sing your praises
  • Post a photo with their testimonial
  • Tag them in the photo!

 

ADVICE/HOW TO POSTS

  • When you GIVE to your audience, they will give back!
  • Posting a how-to on how to do a simple task accomplishes a lot:
    • It establishes you as an authority figure
    • You are demonstrating that you are willing to help – and not just sell
    • Any value you give, will come back to you over time
  • Use a video, if possible – they get great views and responses

 

LOCAL NEWS

  • Posts about local news tie you into your community
  • Local news stories inspire conversations
  • Local news stories are not “spammy” or “sales-y”
  • Your market loves talking about their home
  • Keep it positive – no politics!

 

PROFITABLE PAGES OVERVIEW

  • Your goal is to build your business on Facebook by building your lead base and creating referrals
  • A Facebook page that does not create monetary return is an expense and a time waste. A Facebook page should be an investment
  • Create engagement = create leads
  • Use video as often as you can!
