Stapes and I were chatting about this the other day…
Facebook is like that popular club downtown.
Everyone wants to get in, but only those who know the bouncer (read: Facebook’s algorithm) get the VIP treatment.
And trust us, you want that VIP treatment.
Because it means more eyes on your content, more engagement, and ultimately, more conversions.
So, what’s the secret handshake to get past the bouncer?
Let’s dive in…
The Behind-the-Scenes Tour
Before you can truly master the art of Facebook, you need to understand the beast.
It’s like trying to impress someone on a date. You can’t just throw spaghetti at the wall and hope something sticks. You’ve got to know what makes them tick.
So, what’s Facebook’s love language?
It’s simple: Engagement. But not just any engagement. Facebook craves genuine, authentic, and consistent interactions. It’s not about selling; it’s about connecting.
Let’s get real for a second. Facebook is a social platform, not a marketplace. It’s not where people go to buy stuff. It’s where they go to connect, share, and engage.
So, if you’re trying to sell on Facebook, you’ve got to do it the Facebook way.
Think about it… Would you go on a date and immediately start selling your products? Probably not. So, why do it on Facebook?
Speak Facebook’s Native Tongue
It’s like going to France and trying to speak Spanish. Sure, you might get by, but you won’t truly connect.
On Facebook, it’s all about being conversational. It’s about sounding like you’re chatting with your best buddy over a cup of coffee. It’s… well, it’s social.
But here’s the catch: while you’re being all friendly and chatty, you can still market your products and services.
The trick? Do it subtly.
Don’t be that guy at the party who only talks about himself. Be the one who listens, engages, and then, when the moment’s right, shares something truly valuable.
Consistency is Key
Imagine having a friend who pops by once in a blue moon, stays for a week, and then disappears for months.
Facebook feels the same way. It doesn’t want fly-by-night users. It wants consistency. It wants to know you’re in it for the long haul.
So, if you’re serious about making Facebook fall for you, you’ve got to show up. Not just once or twice, but regularly. And when you do show up, make it count. Engage, interact, and most importantly, provide value.
The Golden Rule: Keep ‘Em On Facebook
Here’s a little secret: Facebook is a tad possessive. It doesn’t like sharing.
So, if you’re constantly posting links that take users off the platform, Facebook’s going to get a bit… well, jealous.
It’s like inviting someone to your party and then telling them about a cooler party next door. Not cool, right?
Instead, keep your audience engaged right there on Facebook. Share stories, post pictures, go live. Make your content so darn good that they won’t want to leave.
Your Next Steps…
Alright, here’s the deal. If you’ve read this far, it means you’re serious about making Facebook work for you. So, here’s your challenge:
For the next week, commit to posting on Facebook every day. But don’t just post for the sake of posting. Engage. Interact. And most importantly, be genuine. See how it changes your reach, your engagement, and your results.
