I had a nice 1-on-1 consultation with a client over the weekend and I was super excited that she was excited and learned so much. She had previously paid someone to do social media services and in some of her questions, she was mentioning how the folks she was paying said she couldn’t do this and that. For example, they indicated that she couldn’t alter her cover picture. It was a beautiful skyline of the area but had open space – perfect for a tagline and her phone number. I showed her how to add text to her cover picture in Canva and/or PicMonkey and the picture looked so much better and is using prime real estate. She’s a realtor and understands that value! 😉
Anyways, we went over all of the basics for her to post to her business page, how often to post, what time to post as well as create like campaigns and boosting posts. We also discussed how important it is to engage not only with folks ON her page, but to actively go out and like other business pages (as her business) and engage on their pages, to include sharing to her business page, commenting and liking. She learned so much and it’s so hard to retain all that information from our 3 hour (yes, three hour) consult, that she reaches out with a few questions here and there. Well, could you imagine why her brain was on overload? SHE wanted to extra hour, mind you! I guess I am a great teacher! 🙂 Toot toot!
Just today she emailed me… “what am I doing wrong” and said that she couldn’t post from HGTV to her business page, that it kept reverting to her personal page. So, I opened up SnagIt and recorded her a little video and sent it off to her. I didn’t use an audio because they were just a few steps, but sometimes it helps to see what’s going on. Then, I thought, well, other people may be having the same issue, so thought I would share here.
This was a 1 minute video showing me starting from my personal Facebook page, navigating to HGTV, then to use FB as my business from the drop down in the upper right corner in the blue bar and then being able to share from HGTV as my business.
This is just something that might be simple for some but quite helpful to others. Either way, I hope you are able to share with others so they can help engage from their business page, which will help their reach on their business page.
