How to Get Maximum Value from Your Facebook Marketing – Part 2

Part 1 of this article gives the first five steps for maximizing your Facebook marketing.  Here are 4 more steps you can follow to get the most of this valuable medium.

Step 5 – Integrate Customer Service with Facebook

Speaking of interacting with your customers, you should also be integrating your customer service with Facebook. It doesn’t matter if you prefer to field customer questions or complaints on your website or by phone. Customers expect the brands they follow to be responsive to their requests across all channels.

Your best bet? Assign an employee to monitor your Facebook messages and respond to service requests as they arise. In addition to expecting to get service wherever they request it, Facebook users also expect speedy responses.

A while back, my family and I were planning a visit to the The Yardhouse restaurant for my birthday.  I announced on Facebook that I was looking forward to my visit and I tagged The Yardhouse.  I was impressed when I got a Happy Birthday message from The Yardhouse.  They had their team monitoring their account closely and replied quickly.  Offering me a discount coupon for a free beer would have been nice, but I really appreciated that.

Step 6 – Run Facebook Ads

Facebook advertising is quite affordable and if you do it right, it can be a great way to attract more followers, build your list, or increase your sales.

Let’s talk about what doing it right means. You’ll need to:

  • Identify the best target audience for your ads
  • Create a compelling ad with a hero image or a video
  • Decide on a goal for your ad
  • Test alternatives for headlines, calls to action, etc.
  • Monitor your results and tweak your ad content accordingly

While you’re testing content, you may want to start with a small budget until you’ve optimized your ad. Then, you can increase your spending to get the results you want.

Step 7 – Post Useful Content

The key to engaging your followers on Facebook is posting useful content. Here are some suggestions:

  • Provide answers to common questions and concerns.
  • Give options on how to use and/or make the most of your product or service.
  • Use Facebook Live to do a Q & A, introduce your staff, or offer a behind-the-scenes tour of your business.
  • Run Facebook contests and giveaways.

Keep in mind that you should share a mix of original and curated content. With curated content, make sure to offer your own take on it – and only share content that is relevant to your brand and followers.

Step 8 – Use Messenger/Chatbot Marketing

It can take up your valuable time if you need to monitor Facebook messages around the clock. The best way to take the stress out of the situation is to use a chatbot to send automated responses to people who message you.

Building a chatbot for Facebook Messenger is easy and affordable. If all you’re looking for is a series of automated responses, you can use a tool such as Chatfuel or MobileMonkey to quickly create a chatbot that meets your needs and provides customers with the immediate responses they expect.

Step 9 – Take Advantage of Retargeting 

It would be great if every potential customer who visited your website filled out your lead form the first time they interacted with your brand. Unfortunately, that’s not the way it works!

The solution is to use Facebook’s retargeting option to reconnect with people who stopped short of completing your opt-in form, downloading your lead magnet, or making a purchase. Retargeting can help you to reconnect with those people, educate them about your brand, and get them to take the next step. All you need to do is install a Facebook pixel on your site. You can read more about it here.

The bottom line is that Facebook marketing is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to meet your marketing and growth goals. Use the information here to optimize your page, engage with your target audience, and take your business to the next level.
