In my coaching program I’m always asked for tips and strategies to create customers on Facebook.
Here’s a few:
- When a person “likes” your Facebook post, always respond with a comment with their name in it. Use their name to personalize the comment.
If you start to type their name in, Facebook will fill it in and it will tag them. If you want to make it more personal, you can back out their last name, which is what I suggest.
Here are some examples:
Mary, I love that you enjoyed this.
Mary I knew this message would resonate with you.
Mary, I love it when you like what I share.
- IN the beginning of the post that you do, encourage people to share it with others. What I do is simply write on the top of the post:
“This is worth sharing with your friends.”
“It would be cool of you to share this with your friends”
Put a message either at the top of your post or at the end of the post encouraging people to give it away.
- If a person comments, always “like” their comment and respond to it with a question.
For example, if a person says, “That is really cool”, you would comment and ask them what is it about his that you found to be cool?
Just have some fun with it. When people comment, don’t let them hang, go back and say something about what they said. You want to encourage and facilitate a conversation and therefore build the relationship with them.
Why is this Key? I call it the “Law of Familiarity”, the more communication, in whatever form, you have with people, the more familiar they become with you.
The reality is that people love to do business with the people they are familiar with, and they love to refer others to people they are familiar with. Facebook is the ultimate way to create a high level of familiarity with others.
Well that’s it for this Issue. Next time I’ll write about another solution to problems you might be having and how to reverse them.
