How to Increase Facebook Engagement for Small Businesses

How to Increase Facebook Engagement for Small Businesses
How to Increase Facebook Engagement These are some tips on how to increase Facebook engagement for your small business effortlessly and successfully. “People share, read and generally engage more with any type of content when it’s surfaced through friends and people they know and trust.” The optimal number of posts on a single day is between 3 to 5; get to know your audience and post content that will grab their attention. “People influence people. Nothing influences people more than a recommendation from a trusted friend. A trusted referral influences people more than the best broadcast message. A trusted referral is the Holy Grail of advertising.”  Cross-Promote your Facebook shout-outs with other social networks like Instagram and Twitter to extend your reach and impact. “Facebook Fan Pages are email newsletters with smaller pictures. Use Facebook to boost new product announcements.” Your fans like your page because they want to know what’s cooking with your business. Be consistent and give your audience the needed information. “With everything Facebook offers for marketers, it’s easy to lose sight that it’s also a tool that can support your brand’s PR or publicity efforts. The reality is that journalists rely on Facebook to source stories, and Facebook actively promotes the platform as a “Rolodex” with 1 billion contacts for reporters.” Using humor in Facebook is a great way to get interaction. People are usually on Facebook to be social, and if you’re able to entertain and inform in your posts, you will get more shares, likes and comments. “By understanding your audience, you can optimise your content strategy, target your advertising better, and generate more return on investment.” Users don’t like long and boring posts. Huge percent will not even consider reading such long posts. Make your publications concise, clear and accurate. “In order to land a spot on a user’s Facebook news feed, try shifting your scheduling strategy from posting during the most popular times in the workweek to the most effective times.” Photos that show what happens behind the scenes are a good way to enhance brand credibility. This might seem counter-intuitive at first. And – it takes a bit of trial and error to work out what the most effective time is going to be for you. But it makes total sense. An average user’s newsfeed is going to be packed with updates, and you’re up against them all in order to get their attention. Posting during the most popular times – read – the busiest times – mean that the competition is even tougher. But switching to quieter periods means that you’re more likely to actually increase the amount of interaction you get. How well do you know your audience? And are you using all the tools at hand to get to know them even...

Top Ten Ecommerce Tips

Top Ten Ecommerce Tips
Top Ten Ecommerce Tips Lead Generation and Conversion What are the Emotional Triggers that Make Customers Click and Buy? “People shop and learn in a whole new way compared to just a few years ago, so marketers need to adapt or risk extinction. Brian Halligan CEO, HubSpot. Consumer behavior is a hotbed of psychological research as it ties together issues of communication (advertising and marketing), identity (you are what you buy), social status, decision-making, and mental and physical health. What makes them Click and Buy Online? Have you ever given a thought about why customers leave your site without buying? You’ll be amazed to know the reasons behind all the lost customers for trivial but expensive mistakes from your end. Ok! Shoot…Let us cruise through one by one… There has never been a better time to start an online business. But starting and running a successful online store is hard work with many steps and decisions that need to come together at the right time.  To help, we’ve put together a comprehensive resource list, hand-selected from our best content. This list will show you how you would research, build, launch and grow a profitable ecommerce business. This list will give you a fair idea on how to boost your online sales by tapping the emotional triggers of the consumers. 1. You Must Ask The Customer To Buy Now If you want customers to “buy now,” you should ask them to do so. Buy now is explosively powerful because shoppers are highly prone to making impulse purchases. Once you realize that this is common shopping behavior, you’re ready to ramp up your “buy now” strategy. Marketing researchers have discovered five major factors that cause a customer to “buy now”: 1. An overwhelming attraction to the product. 2. An intense need to buy the product at once. 3. Ignoring negative consequences that may arise from the purchase. 4. A feeling of excitement at buying the product. 5. Conflicting feelings of indulgence and self-control. 2. Use Models People Can Identify With If you’re selling clothing, jewelry, or accessories, one quick way to create a connection to your customer is to show your stuff on people they will identify with and like. This doesn’t mean you need to book Russian supermodels; it’s best if they look like your customers. This might mean funky and cool, like So Worth Loving. 3. Social Links People are more likely to purchase something if it’s recommended to them by someone they know and trust. So make sure that your product pages have links to Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Google+ so that your customers can tell their friends about the great product they just found on your site. 4. Drive Sales with Persuasive Video Marketing They are the stores that have created consistently great video content around their products without spending fortunes on production. You too can match the quality of most of these videos using a good camera and a steady tripod, or with a single videographer. If you have a good video marketing strategy, it’s possible that you too can build a seven-figure business based on Youtube marketing. Successful stores have created the videos that people use to consult whether or not they buy their products. Need to figure out how to properly brew coffee? Watch the videos of Transcend Coffee. Need to know how to prune a fruit tree? Check out the videos of GrowOrganic Peaceful Valley. 5. Build A Massive Following On Instagram Used correctly, Instagram can be a highly-targeted, visual advertising channel for your brand.
