Got a Facebook page for your business but it’s lifeless? Well, it’s time to shake things up on your page. With Facebook, there is one key way to market: it’s interactive. You no longer have to figure out creative ways to relay messages that will somehow get peoples’ attention, and then sit back and hope it’s working. By marketing through social media sites like Facebook, you get to hear your customers’ reactions first-hand, and can tweak your marketing efforts accordingly.
In my post today, I’m going to cover 5 ways you can wake up your audience and get them interacting on your page.
Here we go…
The first way is by interacting on other pages. Why is this important? Because you want to build credibility on Facebook and in order to do that you need to be an active participant on other fan pages related to your niche or business. Simply get involved in serious discussions, post useful bits of information, or even show your support for the page and people will reciprocate by participating more on your fan page.
The second way is through interactive type Apps. There are numerous apps on Facebook that are helpful in building up your fan page activity. An example of one is the “Fan of the Week” app which actually keeps track of your fans’ participation and acknowledges your top fan of each week. People love being recognized and this app will surely encourage your fans to keep hanging out on your fan page more often.
The third way is very simple. Be GENUINE! Make your communication human and not like a robot. Be yourself. Interact on a personal level with your fans and they will respond.
The fourth way is through Fan Page partnerships. Get with other fan page owners and promote each others fan pages. You can promote other fan pages by sharing their pictures and posts, and by linking to their pages from your own page.
And finally, another way, is by having a contest. Create a contest of some sort and provide your fans with a chance to win a prize, based on their participation. You can set it up any way you like. It can be anything like a photo contest or answering a silly question and then advertise the prize and the deadline date.
As you can see, there are some very simple ways you can take action on to increase your Facebook fan activity.
