The Secret to Success is FACEBOOK

Almost 500 MILLION Users on FACEBOOK

If your goal is to sell a product online, ignore the negativity from the media about Facebook. Perhaps, if you hate Facebook, it’s time to change your attitude. With nearly 500 million Facebook users, how can you afford NOT to be there?

Do you want to sell more books?

Today, Facebook is my #1 social media site on the net. Every morning I post links about marketing tips, new reviews and interviews. Included, I post updated social status information about my personal life. Short, snappy notes, keep my followers up to date and interested.

>FACT – 41% of American households have a FACEBOOK account. Nearly, 500 MILLION users!<

How do I direct my viewers from Facebook back to my site where my books are sold?

1.) Know your audience – To get attention and keep my audience from leaving and wanting to come back, I create unique pages that are on topics of interest. I put myself in their shoes so I know what interests them.

>The majority of the FB audience are women over the age of 45 and making over 60K annually. 53% have children<

My feature page is  filled with pictures, podcasts and valuable content or resource materials—topics  suited to the majority of the FB audience.

*The link I use will take the viewers back to my site where my books are sold.*

2.) Be genuine, prove your an expert, and show interest – Again, think of where your audience will hang- out on Facebook. Join FB group pages. Engage with your audience by participating in discussions. Leave comments, ask questions, and respond to concerns. Be fun. Click the thumbs-up to show interest in their links and posts.

3.) Promote your FB Fan Pages and FB Group – Don’t forget to invite others to your fan page by leaving a functioning link at the bottom of your blog posts or as part of your signature.
