Plz! Somebody Stop Me from My New Plan ... Belew 12 11 monthsBigPoppi (100): @Rev - just curious how you got those 15,000 and 25,000 members and over what time period. Personally, I'm on FB to make Money and create a pixeled list I can market to over and over again. There's a big difference between that and real messages, real questions and lots of real answers which is a lot of WORK, like you say. People are looking to make money and do it in a way that allows them to have time and freedom for themselves and...

How do I improve my online reach w Facebook? jmolan 22 1 yearjmolan (478): Funny Bill (or maybe not) I'm not sure The original filling out of the ad said goals? Page visits, Likes, etc. You can see the two colored line, the short piece on the end is what FB got me, the...
Boosting posts on Facebook gspieler 19 1 yearBelew (11716): @jmolan Good morning! There's a LOT that looks like it works. A little that actually does. I am always skeptical of someone who has done one thing well - sold their widget for example - who is now an expert on how to sell widget. Sure they did it. But can they do it again? If so, then why not keep selling their widget? Why are they suddenly widget sales experts? I have dozens ... more actually - of firsthand case studies in multiple...

Shameless promotion. jmolan 5 2 yearsFrugalTravelsNepal (97): My goal, particularly since they are hell-bent on gutting health care, I'm trying to help people from the US to come here for health care and respite. We can provide a lovely room with a view of the Himalayan foothills with spectacular views of the Himalayas on clear days for long-term stays. There are many hospitals with an international presence. You can expect to get the same level of care as you would in the country that funds them. There...

7 Hacks for Leading a Large Facebook Group Belew 3 2 yearsRev (5413): Over the years I've developed a number of policies, procedures, and "rules" for running groups, forums, and the like. Much of what is shared in this video is embodied in them. The bits that aren't is only because I've never seen the need to define them. Things that I allow, indeed encourage, that most group leaders forbid, include self-promotion, commercial links, and affiliate links -- with the proviso that in topical groups/forums...
Why Did It Take Me So Long to Realize This? Belew 7 2 yearsRev (5413): I don't think much about breathing but I'm happy to do a lot of it. But, hey, think what you could do with some facebook groups. You DO care about numbers so imagine how big they could be. My most active group has about 17,000 people. My biggest group (down a little to 23,995 this morning) is my most spam free. Go figure. The group that generates the most business for me has less than 200 members. It's the difference between groups designed...

A B Testing Facebook Ads for What Works Belew 9 2 yearslunar_ranger (586): @Steve It's like any paid advertising. You invest in data, you reinvest with your new found knowledge, you experiment, you take risks, and eventually, you will succeed.

Giving it away jmolan 3 2 yearsjmolan (478): Oh my you are so right on the horizon, I am usually not that sloppy, thanks. I will fix that before sending out the offer. My fans are used to me bouncing between boats and eagles. I have a couple diverse groups of fans. Deadliest catch fishing people and eagle/nature. It can be fun. So far it looks like seven new email sign ups since the offer.

I do have "Brick & Mortar" Service family business that I look forward to growing; and I learned many years ago about the concept of...
Video coverage big difference jmolan 24 2 yearsBelew (11716): @jmolan The simple answer abt what works is there is no simple answer. If there was one almighty way that works best, everyone would use that one way... then it would not be as effective any more. I recommend IF your strategy is to give something to get something ... make that 'GIVE' as cool as you can without giving away the farm. AND ... make the 'GET' as painless for the GETTER to GIVE as possible. Make it dumb simple.

What Facebook Fatigue Looks Like Belew 14 2 yearsIamstevenb (55): I need to remember that. I am very combative. I use Facebook as one more place to fight the good fight. I think I will integrate things two of you have said. Social media is a place to be social. I need to find ways to be helpful.

Growing an email list jmolan 10 2 yearsRev (5413): @jmolan That's better, but I would probably add two sentences (about 20- 25 words) that provides a little more description (and keywords!). I would also center the image or make it larger to match the width of the form -- no real SEO value there, just a visual "discomfort" thing. Additionally, the MailChimp code has no alternate text (alt) attribute for the image. If there is a way to add it in the MailChimp setup you should do...

Standalone Facebook account ConsciousPrfection 1 2 yearsConsciousPrfection (34): Is it necessary that a facebook account for a business be tied to a personal account? This can't be the case as I would imagine that Maytag or KitchenAid are not tied to someone - or are they?

Tempted ... to cancel my Facebook acct. Belew Jump to first page38Jump to last page 2 yearsnumoquest (28): As a firstday Internet pro, I have seen the first perks of misrepresentation when the first real web-pages still were to be invented. That, today, is one of my core expertise in terms of 'Misrepresentation' being part of many commerce driven schemes up to straight 'Fraud'. There are some invisible rules working in the background here and one known say is 'If it looks to good to be true, then in 99.9% it is.' Especially in times of 'Idiocy', I...

Where's the problem at in this scenario? Belew 10 2 yearsCJSHayward (10): One comment: I won't give the URL unless asked because there are some very clear rules given about posting links on the site, but: This seems an almost classic use case for qualitative research. That is, observing your users. There are a million different approaches and tools that will give some level of qualitative research and user observation; these include online services where you can pay $10 a person for a usability test (5...

Facebook threatens me to post or get out Belew 2 2 yearsRev (5413): I understand that facebook has been accused of falsifying users/membership numbers in regards advertising rates so they are trying to set up a system that filters the chaff. Better they warn you, I think, then just dump unused accounts/pages.
How to turn Facebook likes to download? tienny 11 2 yearsWebriyo (16): An audience is more likely to engage when the content stirs up emotion. The gaming audience likes entertainment and the easiest way to entertain someone is via humor. I'll tell you what I would do to try and get more fan engagement and downloads: 1. I'd download a funny, generic video involving gaming. 2. Upload it to the Facebook Page(without publishing it). 3. Write language asking the audience to tag someone who they think would like the...

A Book is Just A Book Without A Platform Winsome1 9 2 yearsBelew (11716): @Rev My friend got her break more than 10 years ago. All of us are much smarter now than we were 10 years ago. If somebody handed me $200k and said leave it to us 10 years ago I would have left it to them.

All Video Content for Facebook? bdaoust 12 3 yearsSusanDay (2023): @jycmba @Rev Good point. I know I start to get 'restless' when I watch a video that goes for more than 2 mins. What I have planned should only need 30 secs or 1 min I imagine. Might be worth trialing.
I can't find it on Facebook... Belew 8 3 yearsSteve (3649): @Belew I used to be part of a mastermind group... and they worked on the basis that just because something didn't work for one person... it doesn't follow that it won't work for someone else.

Social Media Metrics chrisleffler 20 3 yearsglobalman22 (76): I especially like @Steve's comment above: "We all monitor different things... most count new followers... some monitor engagement... but the only one worth monitoring is the conversion of social media followers in to prospects ( those entering your sales funnel ) and ultimately customers". If the purpose of your efforts is a commercial endeavor, I'm sure it all comes down to conversions.
Successful Paid Advertising Case Studies ... Belew 12 3 yearsglobalman22 (76): This spells out a good case for making sure that your content marketing efforts are spent pouring your heart into something you care about and believe in. First develop a content-rich site with good in-bound and out-bound links, and then combine some paid ads (placed on similar niche sites that would have an interest in your topic) to attract eyeballs to your message. The whole reason for paying to attract traffic would be to accelerate...

cheapest way to promote youtube videos? davidz 10 3 yearsBelew (11716): @davidz How much have you made from those 3.7 million views? How much time did you spend to get there? Have spent any money to get there? It's a simple math problem. If your are not making more money from 3.7 million views than it costs you to get there then it's a losing strategy. I started with a blog network. They bought traffic via ad words and sold display ads to try and recoup costs paid for traffic. They generated huge traffic over...
Can Paid and Organic Traffic Get Along? Belew 5 4 yearsmorrnel (697): It all has to to with basic economics risk and return. Paid leads have a clear price and timeline. Organic leads have a price and timeline too. Have you ever figured them out? My guess is far more and far longer than the paid.

We love it when our students succeed ... Belew 2 4 yearsBelew (11716): What I like about this story is that these people no longer work with me. We 'finished' my involvement. They don't call. I don't call. There is no ongoing relationship that involves their dependence on me = they came, learned, applied, succeeded and no longer need me. That's what I like to do. Work myself out of a job. How do you measure success?

Newzmonkeys the news platform for kids 8-12 Newzmonkeys 9 4 yearsBelew (11716): @Newzmonkeys Re: "...get it known as quickly as possible." I wish I knew the answer to this. My experience is that there is no 'quick' way. I know the slow hard long lasting way. But I have found that the quicker a product/service/person is known ... the sooner they are forgotten. The longer it takes to build a following, the longer it takes for that following to dissipate. There are a lot of people who are smarter than I am....
