Anyone can follow you. Much like a Facebook Fan page, you do not have to approve your followers.
Now looks like a fan page... but acts like a group
You can email directly to a groups FB Inbox!! You know they will see your message.
Groups are structured, with interaction, and state who the administrator is.
No "drip" directly to group members.
Posts are not made by "the group" they are made by the members and show exactly who posted it
Photos are in a manner people arn't used to
So the next question is, how often should you blog?
Touches...What can you do with FB
How is this a touch?
How effective is this touch?
Having friends on your personal facebook page is the only way that you can truely have one on one touches. Unlike a Fan Page, where you drip to the masses; you can actually have very meaningful, and personal touches through your personal page!
Comment on a photo
Comment on a status
Post a useful business link to a wall
Send a private message to discuss more personal matters
Send a funny video to a friends wall
Ask a question
So, the two big questions to answer and understand are.....
How many touches can you make on FB and how quickly?
Why are they more effective?
Did you know...
Studies show that people are over 67% MORE likely to respond back to a touch on social media than in their email.
Pictures are Worth a Thousand Words
What does your thousand words say about YOU?
Keep in mind - its called SOCIAL NETWORKING
People want to see who you are. Show them your personality.
Stay on the "up and up" but be who you are.
What do you like to do? What are your hobbies? Put them in your main photo, and put up albums!!
Increasingly consumers want to talk to consumers. According to Socialnomics.net
only 14% of consumers trust advertisements, whereas 78% trust peer recommendations.
Did you know!
Facebook is the second most visited site on the web! Surpassed only by Google.
Think of it this way - Most internet providers only allow you to send a few hundred emails in a day. By using Social Media sites such as Facebook you can reach thousands of individuals instantly. Better yet, you won't get any bounce back emails.
- Again -
What is your motivation?
Rules of Engagement
Give More Than You Take - Respect - Listen - Respond - Build Relationships - Be Authentic and Transparent - Do Not Become a Nuisance - Collaborate - Consider Opportunities in the Long Tail - Add Value
Practical application for your business
What is your motivation?
Be the Mayor of your online community
This feature allows individuals to organize groups or communities around organizations, causes, neighborhoods. Groups have a great feature of allowing administrators to make the group "private" and only allow select members.
If Facebook is like a backyard BBQ, then you can look at Twitter as an afterwork Cocktail Party.
# hashtags - Hashtags are used as a way to group related tweets posted by different Twitter Users together in one group
RT- ReTweeting establishes validity of the tweeter, it is also a way of relationship building via Twitter.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, imagine what a video says.
What do you think that video would do for your "word of mouth"?
You tube has become the #2 search engine in the world...
in less than 5 years.
Your YouTube Channel
Your channel is a centralized place where anyone can see your public videos, favorites, comments, subscribers, video log, bulletin status and recent activity.
Customize your channel with a simple layout that sets you apart from the crowd.
-What to Post-
Video Testimonials - Property Listing Tours - Real Estate Reports - Community Events - Short Information Videos - Listing Presentations - etc
Try to keep it short. Although YouTube allows for up to 10 minutes of content per video, most consumers have a 3 - 4 minute attention span.
So, how do you build relationships via YouTube?
Although you can do minor relationship building on YouTube, it is more of a "one way street" with you speaking to the customer. If you enjoy a video, respond back with a video rather then a comment. Feature people in your videos that your customers may want to hear from (i.e. head of the HOA, an inspector, an appraiser, home builder, etc.). By doing this, you will cement yourself as the expert and consumers will follow your links on your YouTube page back to your website.
Formal, Business Atmosphere
LinkedIn is currently home to more than 45 million users in over 200 countries. With one person joining every second, 80% of companies now turn to LinkedIn as a primary source of hiring.
-Swanepoel Social Media Report 2010
Recommendations are all about building your credibility. LinkedIn gives you the ability to recommend someone, and even include a small statement about them. This feature is highly regarded, it can be a peer recommendation or a customer testimonial.
LinkedIn Must Do's
Build your online resume - this includes past job expertise, education, awards and designations
Recommend Others-This is one of the key ways that you build relationships on linkedin.
Answers- a very powerful feature that is both for you asking questions, and answering someone elses question. This also gives you the opportunity to be featured as a "best answer" by the person who posted the question
Note the exponential growth. What are the possibilities of this page in a year?
