The following 6 activities, when done on a daily basis, will get your Facebook Fans engaged and
create a community of raving fans who will naturally tell their friends about your services and

Facebook Marketing Success Tip #1: Be a Problem Solver

Solving problems for your fans creates trust and also establishes you as an industry expert. Offer
tips and encourage your fans to ask questions on your page. Be quick to respond to questions
with valuable advice.

Facebook Marketing Success Tip #2: Interact With Your Fans on a Daily Basis

I make a point of commenting on other people's posts 3-5 times each day. These comments are
important because they add fuel to conversations and help to establish relationships.

When I comment on a fan's vacation photos or give input on a video posted by one of my peers,
it shows that I care about them as people.

A great way to do this is to pay attention to the fans who post on your Facebook Page. Click on
their avatar to go to their page or profile and then post a comment.

When you post on your fans' pages or profiles, make a point of using their first name, use natural
language like you would with a friend over a cup of coffee, and be brief.

Facebook Marketing Success Tip #3: Track Your Facebook Metrics

Though less than exciting, tracking the activity on your Facebook Page is an important part of
growing your fan base and maintaining momentum.

Here are a few things to track on a regular basis:

      Number of total fans
      Number of new fans
      Fan growth from the last week
      Number of unlikes
      Number of weekly actives
      Actives growth from the week before

To find these metrics, check out the Facebook Insights on your page. To do so, go to your page
and click on "edit page" in the upper right-hand corner. Over to the left you'll see a list of links.
Click on the Insights link.

Facebook Marketing Success Tip #4: If Something Isn't Working, Change It

It's important to have patience when building your Facebook activity, but you need to know
when to change something if it's not working.

To know when to be patient and when to move on, set some goals with a time limit for reaching
the goals. If you reach the goal date and still haven't gotten results, tweak what you're doing right
away. To avoid unnecessary damage, do this sooner rather than later.

For instance, if you've been asking questions on your fan page for a few weeks with minimal
response, pay attention to the questions that do get responses. That will help you zero in on what
your fans are truly interested in.

You might want to also consider if your questions are too hard or would take too much time to
answer. It's important to ask questions that are easy to answer. Questions that only require a one-
word answer are the most effective.
