Benefits of a Facebook Business Page

by Sales

Let's let unbiased experts answer the question of the benefits of having a Facebook Business page. I copied the top reasons from a blog post on Social Media Today by William Wells III:

http://socialmediatoday.com/william-wells-iii/307559/your-facebook-friend-requests-bad-business-annoying-me

On top of all these reasons, the advantage of having an RSS feed of your own listings and blog posts right onto your Business wall, lead capture forms that feed into your Real Pro Systems back office and drip email campaign(s) and a professional look that matches your website is unbeatable.

Excerpted from: 

Your Facebook "Friend Requests": Bad for Business... Annoying to Me!

...First of all, Facebook personal pages or "Profiles" are intended for people... not businesses.  Technically it's against the rules where Facebook's privacy policy is concerned although they don't appear to be cracking down on this at the moment.

   
Secondly, you should WANT people to "Like" your business page without you having to spend your valuable time administrating that aspect of your Facebook page.  Do you really want to spend an hour of your time filtering through "Friend Requests", sifting through personal messages and notifications, removing  "Bejeweled Blitz" score posts and other unnecessary garbage on your wall?  Wouldn't you rather spend 30 minutes of your time posting valuable information to your audience about special deals, what's coming down the pike, and engaging your audience in a meaningful way?
  
More importantly, here are a few key reasons why your business or organization needs a "Facebook BUSINESS Page":

SEO (Search Engine Optimization): Facebook Business Pages are indexed by search engines.  Personal pages... not so much.   In this day and age, with the unfathomable amount of pages and websites on the Internet, you need to be doing everything possible to improve your online visibility.  A well constructed and engaging "Facebook Business Page" will go a long way in helping make up for what your website is not currently doing for you.

"Friends" verses "Likes"... or "Fans": There is NO limit on the number of fans... or people who can "Like" your Facebook business page. However, there's a cap on the number of "Friends" you can have on a profile page.  That cap is 5,000. Do you really want to set limitations like that?

One "Profile"... many "Business Pages": You can have multiple business pages... however, you can have only one profile page.  Why is this important?  Think outside the box for a moment.  What if you're a Real Estate Agent by day... and you're a Karaoke Deejay by night.  Nope... didn't make that example up!   Or perhaps you own a small Bed & Breakfast, but you also own a consignment shop in town.  Didn't make that one up either.  Point is... you can manage multiple, yet individual, Facebook Business pages... all within one Facebook account.

Statistics and Monitoring Activity: Everyone loves statistics... hits... visits... etc.  Facebook Business Pages have such a thing.  It's called "Insights".  These powerful statistics display in a graph format and include "Page Overview", "User", and "Interactions".  How many people viewed your posts?  How many people "Liked" your posts, photos, or videos?  How many people have "Liked" or  "Commented" on those?  How many people "Liked" your page on a certain day?  And much more!  This information is invaluable when it comes to making your Facebook Business page more useful, engaging, and successful!  There's no such information available on a profile page.

"Landing Pages" and additional "Tabs": Technology exists now for you to turn a Facebook business page into a mini website.  For example, you could integrate an interactive business directory or events calendar right into your Facebook business page.  You could introduce an additional tab which might have printable coupons and special "Facebook Only" promotions.   This is impossible with a personal page.

New Product Integrated Facebook Business Page

by Sales

I love that our company is staying one step ahead of our clients by offering today the tools real estate agents will need tomorrow.

Our new Integrated Facebook Business page is the brainchild of co-founder Joe Lininger, who worked with Galand Haas, Rob Levy and our excellent team of programmers and designers.

Our whole goal is to get people to become a fan of or "Like" your business so your posts end up on their Wall.

Try it out:

http://www.facebook.com/TheRobLevyTeam
http://www.facebook.com/SamMillerTeam
http://www.facebook.com/GalandHaasTeam

For a one-time fee of $295 we will:

  • Match the look and feel of your website with a unique Welcome experience for new fans
  • Integrate two lead capture forms, which will send a lead notification email and connect with your Real Pro Systems database, providing a new path for your fans to become active leads.
  • Program a rotating properties slideshow which will be updated automatically with your active listings, if you wish.

If you're not a client we offer a "stand alone" version of the product where we'll match your website look. 

We now offer special package pricing on an agent website system that includes both Facebook Business Page and RPS VideoMail products with RPS Gold if you are new to Real Pro Systems.

 

Here's more detail on how it works:

We add the Business page into your existing Facebook account after you add us as administrators and create a blank page.

We create the page, matching your website, and set up the integration with the Real Pro Systems website that will drop your leads from the lead capture forms on the Facebook pages into the back office and drip email campaign(s).

You direct people to the page via email marketing, posting on your other wall to direct them there with a URL. If they aren't yet a fan, they will be welcomed with the page we create. When they become a fan and "Like" your business page, the Welcome page is not presented anymore - that's the way Facebook works - but it's available to be linked to directly or by clicking the "tab" in Facebook's menu.

Continue to post status updates on your Business Page Wall - which is specific to business and separate from the Wall seen by your friends.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Real Estate Masters Guild Strategic Partnership

by Sales

Real Estate Masters Guild logo

We recently announced an association with a coaching program to further support our clients in their real estate success. We're so pleased to announce this strategic partnership with the Real Estate Masters Guild, headed by Amy Stoehr.

I've met Amy at past Star Power conferences, where she worked with Howard Brinton for 12 years coaching about 2000 real estate agents. I was so impressed by her. She's developed an excellent reputation for her coaching style. Plus, she is one of the few truly certified coaches.

We outline the training programs available on our website.

 

Craig's List Advertising Template

by Sales

Real Pro Systems is proud to introduce a new feature in the control panel that allows agents to simply push a button to create the HTML for pasting into a Craig's List property ad to promote your listings. It's fast and easy and the links bring traffic back to your website.

You can watch the video tutorial, below, to see how easy it is.

 Here is what it looks like:

New Stealth Site - www.rpsbankowned.com

by Sales

We are now offering a niche stealth site targeted to buyers who want to receive a list of Bank-Owned properties. It comes with a drip email campaign and can be added to the Gold Agent Website System. This is a great vehicle to promote your ability to provide this list. We worked closely with Rob Levy, a top-producing Prudential agent, to develop the site, which includes a CMA offer. Rob has had great traction, receiving 200 buyer leads in his first month, using this site. He found that it was easy to convert the buyer leads to be interested in regular homes for sale.

Serving "Monday Morning Coffee"

by Sales
Our "Monday Morning Coffee" product is great way to keep your contacts looking forward to hearing from you. Each Monday you can send your database a brief email summary of what is happening in your local market. Additionally, Real Pro Systems will update your website with a Monday Morning Coffee webpage so your readers will be able to enjoy the current week's inspirational message.

Monday Morning Coffee


This is an example to what you market summary might say:

It was another gorgeous Summer weekend here in the Eugene and Springfield area! The good news is that there are many more to come. There has not been much change with residential Real Estate. Home sales continue to be sluggish. The number of home buyers seems to be considerably less than at this same time a year ago. The good news is that mortgage rates have stopped their upward trend and should stabilize. The conditions for home buyers continues to be excellent with a very good inventory of homes to choose from and softer pricing.

And here is your Monday Morning Coffee.
