Facebook Updates To Your Fans

Do you manage a Facebook Page for your business? Would you like to create some momentum with a  Facebook campaign but don’t want to invest YellowPages prices to run a contest through a Facebook Application?

A great way to send your Facebook fans a promotion or a discount is to go to “Edit Page/Marketing/Updates”. 

Your Fans will get an “update” under their “messages” feature in their Facebook Profile. 

Facebook Page Updates come in to a special updates inbox under your Facebook messages. Just view "all messages" from anywhere in Facebook.

For Weber Automotive of North Olmsted, we’re making sure fans know where to look for their special promotions, and now we’ll start sending them on a regular basis to encourage more traffic and fans.

Give it a try – make sure you’re using your other networks to get the word out (like Twitter, LinkedIn, and an email campaign) and have fun!  Happy updating : )

The Quickest Way To Expose Your Event With Social Media

Do you have an event you want the world to know about? Here’s a step by step social media event marketing plan that takes less than an hour per week:

1) Create the event on your events tab in Facebook. 

2) Send a message to all fans of your page to invite their friends.

3) Find other Facebook Pages that would be interested and post your event on their wall.  For example, we posted this family friendly event on 365 Things To Do With Kids In Cleveland and Macaroni Kid Cleveland West

4) Use Hootsuite to schedule Twitter messages about the scheduled events.  I like to send out 3 at a time to really make an impact. Using Hootsuite can save you time by spending an hour writing messages, but sending them out scattered throughout the day, or even week!

Lastly, make sure you follow up and thank people expressing an interest.
