Facebook Marketing: Sales Is Relationships

Facebook marketing is the same as offline marketing!

Treat your Facebook friends the same as you would your real friends because sales is relationships whether you are online or offline!

Facebook is among the most important social media outlets for building strong business and friendship relationships, yet many network marketers forget how to treat their Facebook friends so they last.

When it comes to networking, this can be a major mistake and customers, connections, and even business growth can be destroyed in an instant.

When you learn how to treat your Facebook friends like your real friends you will build business relationships that will last.

Facebook Marketing = Consistent

Many marketing techniques on Facebook revolve around only promoting the business, but this can lead to boredom and over-stimulation of the same business over and over pretty fast.

Instead of just giving your Facebook friends or fans updates on new products and promotions, connect with them by also incorporating customer feedback, contests, and even personal photos, tips or other value added engagement.

Don’t Over-Indulge Your Facebook Marketing

While posting only a few times a month is a pretty disastrous move for any business, the same can be said for serial posting as well.

As a general rule, be sure to post at an absolute minimum of once a day to keep your friends and contacts informed but more like 3 times a day would be idea.

If you feel like you must post more often, post simple phrases and small updates rather than a slew of logos, slogans, and advertisements for your business.

Have Fun With Facebook Marketing

This makes you more ‘real’ to them, and helps make your business more friendly as a result.

Just plain old FUN sometimes is all it takes, to turn a Facebook friend into a customer!

Your friends and fans will stick with you if you can keep them entertained and add value to their lives.

Many marketers hire people to manage their Facebook pages for them for this reason.

If your posts are about as enthusiastic as cardboard, consider punching up your posts by hiring someone to do the work for you or by changing the way you post.

If you can make your fans smile, they’ll love you as much as they love your business, and will be more likely to recommend you to other people as well.

Facebook can be a gold mine of connections and friends if you know how to market yourself correctly.

Engage your friends and post interesting things, and you are sure to grow your fan base and create real friends that will last for a lifetime.
