I know you get tired of me on the soapbox. So here is Courtney Donahue Foster on HER soapbox. She’s a FACEBOOK guru but she’s promoting email marketing as a necessary alternative. So if you aren’t emailing your clients, call me today! Let’s get started!
Her recent email said –
“Imagine a marketing platform not limited by a newsfeed algorithm.
A platform that you own.
A platform that allows your followers to actually see all of your content.
A platform with the highest ROI of any marketing platform.
That platform? Email marketing.
And if that doesn’t thrill you right now, I want to change that.
Because at the end of the day, you don’t own your Facebook likes, your YouTube views, or your Instagram hearts.
But you do own your mailing list.
And if you’re in this entrepreneurship thing for real, if you’re ready to hike up your big kid business pants and start using strategies that stick, you need to build something you own.”
This article does a really nice job of outlining how to use FB posts to drive traffic to your website. They are talking about blogs specifically but the same principles work to drive traffic to any page of your website. We’ve talked about these steps before but I thought it would be good to hear the “lecture” from someone new! LOL
Please take time to read this! If you understand the overall principles, you and I can do a better job implementing the steps. You can call me with any questions this brings up.
Facebook posts can be very effective. But they don’t work as a shoot and splatter technique! They have to be purposeful.

There are 2 ways to invite people to like your business page. The first one is helpful if you have had business contacts friend you on your personal page but haven’t liked your business page. This article shows you step by step, with pictures, how to invite your current friends to like your page.
Another way is to invite the people that like your posts. These people may or may not be friends with you on your personal profile, but they saw your post and liked it. To do this look on the bottom of your post and click this link where it shows you the people who liked your post. This will bring up a dialog box that shows everyone who liked your post. Those who do not already like your page will have a gray invite box next to their name and once you click it an invitation will be sent to them asking them to like your page.
Try these out and see how many new likes you get!
You can receive notifications from Facebook via email or your mobile to keep you informed and active with your FB contacts. But if the settings are wrong those notifications can make you crazy!
You can have different settings for your personal profile and your business pages.
Tailor them for a perfect fit!
On Your Personal Profile
Go to the drop-down arrow at the right end of the FB tool bar.
From the drop-down menu, select Settings near the bottom.
From the left side-bar navigation, select Notifications
You have 4 sets of notifications. Go through each grouping and customize. NOTE: Be sure to turn on all notifications from WSRG under Group Activity so you’ll see all WSRG posts!! There isn’t a SAVE button. As you make your selections, they are saved.
When you are through, click the Home button on the FB tool bar to go back to your timeline.
While you’re in Settings, look at your selections under Security and Login as well as Privacy. YOU control – to a large degree – what people can see about you.
On Your Business Pages
Click Settings on the FB business pages tool bar.
Click on Notifications in the left side-bar.
Make your selections. The choices are different since this is a business page. You still have a lot of control though.
Control Facebook and your technology!!
