Tips For Engaging Your Prospects on Facebook

Tips For Engaging Your Prospects on Facebook

Like it or not, social media is a part of the present and looks like it will be part of the future, as well. If you have a company or business of any kind, then you probably already know that it is time to figure out the best way to market your business on social media sites such as Facebook.

There are many ways to market to your prospects, but there are also many ways to engage your prospects. While both these topics may seem different, there are some similarities, as well.

In order to engage your prospects on Facebook, there are several tips you need to know:

1. Be engaging

Believe it or not, you have the power to engage someone using nothing more than your words. Whatever you post, make sure it pulls the reader in and makes them want more of the same. Start by posting different types of posts and see how many responses you receive. Facebook is a great way to run market tests.

2. Be authentic

Whatever you do, be authentic. When you are not being real, even if it is just through your words, people will sense your inauthentic come through the page.

3. Be vulnerable

Other people enjoy when you are courageous enough to be vulnerable. Share your frustrations, your successes, your fears. This will strike a chord with just about everyone there is on social media. Sometimes people visit social media just for this reason.

4. Be relatable

Make sure what you are posting or writing about is something that everyone can relate to, especially those in your target audience. When others can relate to your content, they will more than likely come back again in the future looking forward to more engaging content.

5. Keep up with the trends

Other social media avenues such as Twitter are excellent tools to help keep you in the loop. Check your Twitter account to see what the next hot new topic is and go from there. You will be surprised how thirsty and audience is for the next new hot thing.

6. Do not talk about certain things

No matter what you do or what business you are in, it is important to note that there are certain subjects you should stay away from like the plague – those subjects are politics and religion. Stay away from these or any connotation to them as much as possible.

While social media may not be your favorite topic, especially if you are in the older set, but it is a necessary component of engaging your audience and keeping them coming back for more.

The Growth Of Affiliate Marketing – Keys To Success

The Growth Of Affiliate Marketing – Keys To Success

Affiliate Marketing has been around for a long time and more and more companies are turning to affiliate marketing to promote and sell their products.

Affiliate Marketing is where you promote or refer a product or service on behalf of a business online.  When someone purchases using your referral, you get paid in the form of a commission.

The benefit for the company selling the product is your product gets all the promotion by it’s affiliates and you only have to pay a commission once product is sold.

There are thousands if not millions of people around the world earning money out of this strategy.  Affiliate marketing is a great way to earn additional income and in some cases replace the income of your 9-5 job.

According to research done by Rakuten Marketing  the Affiliate Marketing Industry is to Grow to $6.8 Billion Over Next Five Years (between 2015-2020).  Although an article by The Drum suggests that affiliate sales 12 months ago for the UK alone reached £16.5 billion!

Heading well into 2016, new and existing affiliate marketers need to look at the changing market and how they are going to promote their products online.

Mobile is having a huge impact with over 50% of affiliate sales being made via mobile.

Marketing your product so it appeals to the mobile user should be a key focus for a lot of affiliate marketers.

The drivers of affiliate growth need to include: original native content, leveraging social influence, and understanding data to get the 360-degree view of an entire campaign.

Facebook have announced that most of their continued success is fuelled by mobile as well as video ads across Facebook and Instagram.

With video via mobile increasing,  a strategy including video is a must not just through YouTube but across all social media platforms.

YouTube has announced a new six-second unskippable ad format called Bumpers, which it says are ideally suited to the kinds of “snackable videos” succeeding across mobile devices today.  

This is the type of advertising that affiliate marketers will need to adjust and market in order to stay ahead of the ever growing market.

The formula for affiliate marketing remains relatively the same no matter the change in the market or topic.  Your main task will always be traffic generation and driving that traffic to your affiliate offer.

With the growth expected over the next few years Affiliate Marketing is an exciting industry to be in and build a successful business around.

Mints App 2.0 Review

Mint’s App 2.0 was released 2 weeks ago and I have had a great time using the software for some of my customers and I must say it does create more interaction with customers and prospects!

So what is Mints App 2.0?  This software enables you to create polls, quizzes and surveys and post on social media and on your website.  What you can do is get the customer interacting with your business and find out what are their likes and habits.

Mints App takes a step further where you can create multiple questions, offer bonuses, create competitions and also capture leads!

Asking the potential customer to enter their detail to find out their current home value.

The results are in and after only a week she already has 8 new leads.  This is from her current customer base.  She would not have known that these people were looking at selling their houses if she hadn’t had the poll there.

The possibilities are endless on what you can ask your customers. You can make the polls fun, entertaining, ask subtle questions about colors, styles, design or even who is going to win the next sports game.

What this software allows you to do is interact more with your customers on your website and social media and capture valuable information.

If you are struggling with interaction or engagement with your customers then Mint’s App is the software you need.

Build customer funnels in minutes.  Any niche, any business model you can engage new and existing customers more effectively.

I’ve been testing this software on a couple of my fan pages and it definitely is a lot easier to find content and my reach and likes have increased dramatically in the last two days.

The content has already proven to have a viral effect which means that not only does your content improve for your existing Fans but it is content that people want to like and share which creates more reach and more likes on your page.

I am running quite a few Fan Pages and it took me less than half an hour to schedule a weeks worth of posts for each of those pages.  So easy and a great tool if you are like me and managing different fan pages and struggling to find content.

There is an add-on tool which is the affiliate link-cloaker which cloaks your affiliate link so you can post it easily in your posts without sending to a landing page.

So not only does this product help you find viral content you can also monetize that content by including your cloaked affiliate links.

Highly recommend this product.
