4 Qualities to Help You Become a Successful Facebook Page Admin

Everyone has different objectives for their Facebook Page, but one thing is true whether you’ve created a business Page or fan Page – you want to be successful at achieving those goals.

What does it take to make a successful Facebook Page? We’ve got plenty of resources that give you the how-to, but in this post we’re sharing some personal skills and traits necessary to succeed in this ever-changing platform.

Be a Successful Facebook Page Admin with These Traits

Here are a few qualities that are crucial to succeeding with a Facebook Page along with resources to help you improve in those areas:

1. Curiosity

As social media is changing the way we do everything, a successful Facebook Page owner is eager to dive in and stay up-to-date. Develop a sense of curiosity and immerse yourself in the Facebook platform. Keep up with the newest features and experiment with new strategies on your Page.

Know what’s trending and apply it to your Page. Right now, video and live broadcasting are especially hot on Facebook. Get curious and see how your Page fans react to your live video.

Check out these resources to develop your curiosity muscle:

2. Adaptability

With Facebook changing its algorithm and updating features what seems like every 5 minutes, a successful Facebook Page owner needs to be able to adapt. For example, with video becoming more popular, you may need to become more skilled in that area.

This quality also applies to monetization. When Amazon unexpectedly changes it pay structure, are you ready to adapt your monetization strategies? Much is beyond our control on Facebook, but the people who succeed are those who are willing and ready to adapt to change.

Check out these resources to help you embrace change:

3. Persistence

A successful Facebook Page owner knows that millions of fans don’t come to your Page overnight. It takes consistent posting, daily management, and constant customer service to build relationships on social media.

Many people want to give up after a week because their posts aren’t going viral. If they do give up, they’ll never see a post reach that kind of success. If they stick with it and put in the work, it’s only a matter of time before their Page takes off.

Check out these resources to become more persistent:

4. Patience

Patience goes hand-in-hand with persistence. Some metrics – like brand awareness, customer retention, even ROI – may not pay off right away. Getting frustrated and giving in to publishing overly promotional posts will only prolong your Facebook Page success.

Instead, persistently work at creating relationships by adding value. Educate, entertain and inform your fans to help them develop trust in you.

Who couldn’t use a little help becoming more patient? Check out these resources:

Work on developing these four qualities. Pairing these traits with the Facebook know-how will put you well on your way to being a successful Facebook Page admin.

4 Smart Ways to Use Facebook Automation Tools

Facebook Pages are exciting when they’re a shiny new project. You get post-happy for about three days before the honeymoon phase wears off and real life gets in the way. Before you know it, you’re lucky if you get one post up a week.

But you know that you need a Facebook Page for your business. You know there’s success to be had with fan Pages. If only you had time to post regularly, you’d be reaping just as much success as the others who have nailed their Facebook Page strategies.

Guess what? They don’t have time for social media every day either. This is the beauty of Facebook automation tools.

If you want to build, grow and monetize a successful Page, Facebook automation is essential. Keep reading to learn why you should be automating your content and how to use these tools the right way.

Scheduled Times

Why Use Facebook Automation Tools?

Creating a post schedule that automates your Facebook Page content has several benefits, including:

  • It saves you time. This is easily the biggest benefit. Everyone knows the reach they can have with Facebook, but the platform can easily suck you in if you’re logging in three times a day to create a valuable and compelling post.
  • It allows you to plan. Creating a content calendar allows you to schedule content to post at strategic dates and times, such as holidays or during times of promotions. You can even plan for your posts to publish at the time when the majority of your fans are online.
  • You can manage multiple Pages efficiently from one platform. No matter how many Pages you have, an automation tool allows you to easily access any one of them at any time from one account.
  • You can upload content in bulk for the week or month ahead. These features help you save time.
  • It’s easier to post consistently. Facebook favors Pages who post often by showing more of your content in the news feed. As a result, more of your audience will have the chance to catch your content and more new followers will be able to find it.
  • You can share the same content multiple times over a set period of time. If you have an epic blog post to promote, share it multiple times. Be sure to restyle the post description and image shared to make it unique and engaging.
  • You can share blog posts automatically. Connect your WordPress RSS feed to automatically post new and evergreen blog posts.

The benefits to automating your Facebook Page are endless, yet you still can’t rely on automation for everything. Keep reading to learn how to get the most use out of Facebook automation tools.

Maximizing Facebook Automation Tools

Maintaining a successful Facebook Page will take some effort on your part. Here are a few tips to for pairing manual effort with a Facebook automation tool:

  1. You still have to interact with your fans. Avoid using a Facebook automation tool that generates replies to comments; that’s where the personal interaction must come in. Set your own schedule for the times of the day that you’ll check your Facebook Page. Log in and monitor the comments on your posts. Remember that building strong relationships is at the core of social media.Have trouble staying focused on Facebook? Check out our productivity tips that’ll help you stay on course.
  2. Keep your objectives in mind when creating your post descriptions and content. Do you want to drive traffic to your website? Grow your email list? Promote products? These objectives will inform the links you share and giveaways you offer.
  3. Use keywords in your descriptions. Monitor Pages in your niche to see what kinds of questions fans are asking and what language they’re using. Hit on those keywords in your own post descriptions.
  4. Run Facebook ads to grow your Page. Ads are the key to building your Facebook Page – and automated, consistent content is key to maintaining satisfied fans. With both of these steps in place, your Page is well on its way to success!

How to Set and Achieve Your Facebook Page Goals

Starting a new Facebook Page – whether it’s a fan page, business page, etc. – can be intimidating when it seems like there are so many components to it. Having a few goals in mind before you start posting content can help you stay on a focused path.

Even if you’ve been running a Facebook Page for a while, there will inevitably be times when you feel like it’s in a slump. It’s important to keep setting goals to continue to see progress with your Page.

marketing objective to measure Facebook Page ROI

In this post, we’ll go over some tried and true tactics to help you set and achieve your Facebook Page goals.

The SMART Method to Setting Facebook Page Goals

You’ve likely heard of the SMART technique for setting goals. This acronym works as a strategy to help you set goals in all realms of life, including Facebook! Here’s how you can use this technique to set actionable Facebook Page goals:

Specific

Be specific in what you want to achieve with your Facebook Page. Do you want to increase sales? Attract users to your website? Increase brand awareness? Build an email list? Write down your specific goals.

Measurable

Determine how you’ll measure your progress toward your goal. Facebook Insights helps you measure the engagement rate and ROI from your Facebook ads. Other tools like Google Analytics and Bitly can help you measure how much traffic you’re getting to your website from your Facebook Page.

Facebook Ad Set Results Google Analytics

Achievable

While we don’t want to discourage you from dreaming big (seriously, big numbers are possible on Facebook!), make sure you start out with a realistic goal. Maybe your first goal is to hit 100 Page likes, then 1,000, then 10,000! Start small so as not to get discouraged, and keep raising the stakes as you get a better handle on it.

Relevant

Your goals should align with your niche, company, or organization that you’re representing. Make sure they reflect the vision and mission you have for your brand.

Time Specific

Put a deadline on your goal. Think about how soon you want to see results. For example, maybe your goal is to double your email subscriber list in the next six months.

Use this method to define and assess your Facebook Page goals. Also, for examples of goals to set when you’re first starting out, check out this post we wrote on 5 Goals to Set When You Create a Facebook Page.

Now that you know what you want to achieve, it’s time to take action. Keep reading to learn our best practices for reaching your Facebook Page goals.

Facebook Profile vs. Facebook Page: Which is Better for Your Business?

With 2 billion people on Facebook, it’s safe to say that the majority of people know what Facebook is and have a personal profile. But many small business owners getting started in social media ask about the difference between having a Facebook profile and a Facebook Page to market their business. This post will show you the difference between the two and which one to go with for any type of business.

What is a Facebook Profile?

A Facebook profile is for personal use on the platform. An individual creates an account using their email address. The profile owner then has the ability to upload a profile picture and cover photo, and add any basic information about where they live, where they work, when their birthday is, etc.

With a Facebook profile, you can go Live, connect with friends and family, post pictures and videos, and make comments on content in your News Feed. You can only have one Facebook profile associated with your email address.

Facebook profile

So far, a profile might sound similar to a Facebook Page. A big difference is that owners of Facebook profiles connect with people by adding them as friends rather than getting a Like.

If you set up a Facebook profile for your business, you are actually creating an account as if your business were a person. You can only connect with people by becoming friends with users. But the problem is that most people won’t want to add a business as a friend, making it difficult to make connections and have any reach.

Any user who creates a profile, however, has the ability to create multiple Facebook Pages.

What is a Facebook Page?

A Facebook Page is created by the owner of a Facebook profile to represent their business, brand, company, or nonprofit organization. People also create Facebook fan Pages to connect with more people around a celebrity, television show or other loved attribute of pop culture.

Facebook Business Page

Unlike profile accounts, Facebook Pages connect with people when users “Like” the Page instead of adding it as a friend. Page Likes represent your Page “fans.” When someone likes your Page, the content you share can appear in their News Feed and they can engage with it.

With a Facebook Page, a business can promote special offers, contests, and giveaways. You can use Facebook ads for Likes to build your fan base. Facebook has no limit as to how many Pages you create.

Which to Use for Business: Profile or Page?

Many business owners make the common mistake of creating a profile for their business as opposed to creating a Facebook business Page. Not only is a profile doing your business a disservice, but using a Facebook Profile for business is actually a violation of Facebook’s Terms of Service. Facebook can delete your profile if you use it to share content for profit.

Pages, however, exist for companies to conduct business. A Facebook Page is a better avenue for businesses for several reasons.

Facebook Pages make your business more professional. You can list information such as your hours, location, and reviews. You can also create offers for your fans and send sponsored messages.

Not only do Pages give you a professional edge, but you can connect with people easier. People are more likely to Like your business as a Page than add it as a friend. They’ll be able to follow your content without feeling like you can see everything they post as well.

If you have made this mistake, you can easily convert your Facebook profile to a Facebook business Page.

Facebook Pages for the Win

The bottom line is that Facebook Pages are the way to go to represent your business. In addition to being a violation to Facebook’s Terms of Service, creating a profile for your business will prove to be a waste of time. Facebook’s features for Pages allow businesses to take advantage of the accessibility to prospects and understand their market better.

How to Use Facebook Groups for Business

Many FPTraffic subscribers use Facebook Pages to market their business. But Facebook Groups provide another viable avenue for business owners to connect with their audience. Groups can help support your business by promoting products and offering customer support.

Here are seven ways you can use Facebook Groups to support your business.

7 Ways to Support Your Business with Facebook Groups

1. Offer additional training

If you sell an online course, offer access to a private Facebook Group as part of the purchase. Give customers a place to ask questions, have accountability and share their own testimonials. Offering Facebook Group support shows that you care about your their success with the course and gives you a chance to further help your customers succeed.

The deeper relationship you form with your customers, the more they’ll develop trust in you and will likely buy your products again.

2. Establish yourself as an expert

Facebook Groups are a great way for you or your business to be seen as a resource in your niche. Whether you create your own Group or participate in another one in your niche, contributing your knowledge sets you up as an authority for people to follow. For example, if you’re a personal trainer, you might join or start a fitness challenge group or a health tips group for the city or state you live in.

However, it’s important to give value without self-promotion. Refrain from promoting yourself or your business in a resource group. You might be wondering, what’s the point of participating? When members of your group develop trust in you, they’ll begin to follow you outside of the Facebook Group.

When members of your group develop trust in you, they’ll begin to follow you outside of the Facebook Group. Give value to others and you’ll be rewarded well as the word spreads.

3. Sell products

You can use Facebook Groups to sell products and digital goods. When you create a Group, you’ll have an option to “sell something” under the More button in the Facebook update. Upload a picture of the product, price and description. You also have the ability to mark posts as Available or Sold.

4. Get feedback

Create a Facebook Group to test out ideas, courses or content with your existing customers. Make a secret group and invite your customers to give honest feedback on any ideas you’re thinking about adding to your business. This helps you to understand your customers better and, once again, establish trust and stronger relationships with them.

5. Provide customer support

If you sell a product or service, a Facebook Group is a great place to field questions and offer support on how to use your product. That’s what we do with the FPTraffic group – people are paying for our Facebook scheduling tool every month, and we want to offer service so they know how to use the product and get the most benefit from it. The group is also a place for customers to let us know if they are having trouble with any of the features.

6. Mastermind with others

If you have a lot of ideas for your business, it’s helpful to have a group of peers to chat them through with. Create a Facebook Group for other business owners – whether in your niche or not – to bounce ideas off. You might want to keep this group small and invite people that you know and trust.

The Group feature is a nice online base for mastermind meetings because you can upload and share files, post recordings and easily search for what you need in the group.

If you have a lot of ideas and want someone to help vet them, create a Facebook mastermind group. This will help you avoid wasting too much time or money on an idea that just won’t work.

7. Communicate with your team

If your team is mostly virtual, create a Facebook Group as a central place for you all to communicate efficiently. This can be a great place to share updates, make introductions for new team members and motivate or praise your team. Of course, you’ll want more private conversations with your employees to take place outside of the Group.

Facebook Groups

Facebook Groups offer another avenue for you to connect with your customers and market your business. They’re easy and free to set up, so why not give it a try?

Why You Don’t Need to be Everywhere in Social Media

Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Google Plus, Snapchat – the list of social media platforms seems never ending, and each channel has its benefits. While you might be tempted to have a presence on each platform, spreading yourself too thin may make it difficult to gain traction anywhere. Unless you have a virtual assistant to help you out, you’ll likely lose your own sanity trying to keep up with it all.

The good news is, despite what people say, you really don’t need to be everywhere on social media. Instead, why not try putting all of your efforts into the social media platform you feel strongest in? Devoting your time to one area can be more effective in growing your following.

How to be Successful in Social Media

If you’re a brand, blog or business looking to gain a following on social media, try narrowing your focus. Here are three steps to consider when building your social media presence:

1. Pick one social media platform

Yes, just one! For now anyway. The key to mastering social media is to master only one aspect of it at a time.

How do you know which channel to choose? Find out where your audience hangs out. With 1.8 billion people in the world on Facebook, it can’t hurt to start there.

2. Study and master the platform

After you decide which platform to devote your efforts to, study that channel to learn how it works. When is the best time to post? How do the algorithms work? How can you get organic reach on that channel?

Each social media platform has plenty of resources for learning its culture. If Facebook is your chosen platform, let this blog serve as your study guide. We discuss all things Facebook with three blog posts a week, keeping up with the latest features and changes. We also have a free email course intended to help you succeed with your Facebook Page.

Fan Page Course

3. Execute

Once you’ve chosen your social media channel and studied its culture, form a plan to dominate in it. Create the content that does best on that platform. Set a post schedule that automatically publishes content at the most prominent times. Interact with your fans and keep up with your analytics to better understand them.

If you already have profiles across every social media channel, you might continue posting here and there but be sure to put the majority of your efforts into one channel for now. Focus your attention on one platform, master it, then start again with another one.

Facebook Image with Link in Description

FPTraffic members have the ability to connect their Twitter account, so if you’re posting content to your Facebook Page it will also post to your Twitter feed. This is a nice way to keep up minimally on another channel while you’re mastering Facebook.

Getting good on one platform helps you grow a strong following better than trying to keep up with each channel right from the beginning. Pick one platform to start with, learn how it works, and make a plan. Repeat.

5 Key Elements of the Perfect Facebook Page

What does the perfect Facebook Page look like? How can you ensure success with your new Page?

Depending on your niche and audience, Facebook Pages will have some differences in how they attract engagement. What works well for a television show fan Page might not work the same for a business Page trying to raise brand awareness. No matter the type of Page you run, there are a few basics that everyone needs to have for a successful Facebook Page.

All Page owners are given the same tools and template to operate from. It’s important to know how to optimize your Page, and it can be all too easy to overlook some simple steps. In this post, we’ll give you 5 basic elements of the perfect Facebook Page.

Create the Perfect Facebook Page with These 5 Tips

If your Facebook Page is stagnant, go back to the basics and make sure it has these 5 qualities:

1. A recognizable profile picture and quality cover photo

Users should be able to instantly associate your profile picture with the topic of your Page. Include a recognizable face of a character or celebrity for your fan Page, or use your company logo for your business Page.

profile picture

Cover photos take up a good portion of the Page, and they’re the first thing a user sees when they arrive at your Page. Facebook’s Help page currently recommends to size your photo at 828 pixels wide by 315 pixels tall for desktop view and 640 pixels wide by 360 pixels tall for mobile view. Test your cover photo on desktop and mobile browsers to make sure the main features are visible on both.

Use the FPTraffic Image Editor tool size your images without losing quality. You can also add text or a logo to create a customized image for your fans.

2. Create a custom URL

Your Facebook Page should be easy for people to find. When you get 25 likes to your Page, you have the ability to create a username and custom URL. Your URL should match your Facebook Page title so users can easily find you. Every title or URL should be as consistent as possible.

Check out this post for more guidance on creating a custom URL.

3. Add a call-to-action button

The Facebook Page template makes it easy for you to funnel traffic through to a website, shop or blog. You can easily drive your fans to do what you want them to do by adding a call-to-action (CTA) button on your Facebook Page. The button overlays the cover photo, standing out to fans when they arrive on your Page.

Check out this post to learn how to add a CTA button to your Page.

4. Complete your About section

People often neglect to fill this section out, but no matter what type of Page you run, this section has potential to inform fans about your products or services or drive them to another website.

The About link is popular, so even adding just a few sentences can keep a new user from turning away from your Page. Optimize this section by adding a link to your website or hint to your best-selling products.

5. Pin an important post to the top

For new fans especially, it’s helpful for them to see a pinned post at the top of your Page that gives better insight to the value of your Page. Maybe it’s a welcome message, information about a new product or maybe even your most popular post – make sure the post is something that you’d like to get the most visibility on.

Best Practices for a Successful Facebook Page

The 5 tips listed above are basic changes you can easily make to optimize your Facebook Page, but it’s the ongoing practices that you implement that will ultimately keep fans coming back and interacting on your Page. If the basics are covered, make sure you’re doing the following:

  • Posting on a frequent, consistent basis
  • Providing value in every post, whether by educating, informing or entertaining
  • Analyzing your post results and seeing what type of content your fans like most
  • Creating ads for your target audience
  • Connecting with other Pages, Groups and brands on Facebook to expand your reach

These best practices, when paired with the 5 key elements above provide the best strategy to creating the perfect Facebook Page. Any time you’re stumped or feel that your Page is stagnant, go back over these. Maybe it’s time to update your cover photo or About section, or analyze your Insights. Keep experimenting and giving your fans more of what they want.

How to Create a Community Around Your Facebook Page

Are you looking to make an impact on people with the message of your Facebook Page? Do you want to bring people together with your chosen niche?

Whether you’re looking to inspire, educate or entertain, creating a community around your Facebook Page is a great way to expand your reach and engage your fans. The more your Page sparks discussion, it begins to feel like a place fans want to come back to and hang out at. They start to feel comfortable and understood there.

What are some ways to build that familiarity on your Facebook Page? Here are a few tips to grow your community.

Use Your Facebook Page to Build a Community

Your Facebook Page is where the attraction starts. You lead fans in with valuable content that resonates with them, and pull them into the discussion. Here are a few ways to keep them engaged even further:

1. Create a Facebook Group

In addition to Facebook Pages, Facebook Groups are a great way to reach your fans and develop relationships. With a Facebook Group, readers may even be more likely to see your posts. If the user is engaged with your Group, they’ll receive notifications when you post in it, whereas they might not catch all of your Page posts in their News Feed.

The purpose of a Group is to provide even more value to your fans. Groups are especially purposeful if you’re selling products, courses or services, because you can offer a place for customer service, testimonials and discussion.

Since Groups are more private than Pages, this is a place where your audience should feel more safe and comfortable. They can interact with other like-minded people who share the same interest in what your Page offers.

This is a great place to spark discussion. Keep the engagement level high by sharing prompt posts – posts that prompt your users to start talking. Try asking people to share what their favorite product, character, episode, etc. may be. Share relevant news or helpful articles in your group that you don’t share on your Page. These posts get people talking and interacting with each other – thus, community is being built!

2. Broadcast frequently with Facebook Live

Facebook Live is helpful for your Page in so many ways, community building being a huge benefit. Going Live allows users to see your face and get familiar with who you are behind the screen. Not only do they get a better sense of who you are, but it’s a great way to get engagement going.

You can offer do answer questions in a Facebook Live broadcast, encouraging fans to comment and submit their concerns. Having you interact with them in real time is a game changer for creating community. You can stream Facebook Live from your Page or a Group, adding to your community on multiple levels.

3. Creating ads for a targeted audience

Facebook’s Audience Insights allows you to be highly specific in who you target your ads to, meaning you can attract the exact type of user who needs what your Page has to offer. This means that only the people who are already interested in your niche will see your ad, making them highly likely to join and contribute to the community.

Create an ad to invite users to join your Facebook Group or boost a popular post on your Page. Get more like-minded people into your community with specifically targeted ads. Continue to show those new users value through your Page and Group content.

Building community is an important factor for your Facebook Page because it helps create loyal fans and customers. Users will know they can go to your Page for what they’re looking for, making you a leader in your niche and a Page they want to share with their friends.

Promote Your Facebook Page Like a Boss

Are you looking for more ways to get traffic to your Facebook Page?

We know that Facebook ads for Likes are a great way to build your fan base, but promotion doesn’t only have to take place on Facebook. There are several ways to promote your Facebook Page outside of the platform. Take advantage of every opportunity to tell an audience – even if it’s one person – about your Page to gain more Likes.

Here are 8 unique ways you can promote your Facebook Page.

8 Unique Ways to Promote Your Facebook Page

How can you promote your Facebook Page off Facebook? Try these tips:

1. Email signature

Place the link to your Facebook Page right under your contact information so everyone you’re in contact with has access to it.

2. Blog post

Write a new blog post announcing your Facebook Page. Readers of your blog may not know about your Page and will appreciate having another connection with your brand. Be sure to include social sharing widgets to your post and link them to your Facebook Page.

3. Guest posting

Write a blog post for another popular website in your niche. Most websites allow you to write a short bio about yourself; be sure to include a link to your Facebook Page so their audience can follow you.

4. Blog comments

Everyone is reading blogs, which is why it’s so easy to promote your Facebook Page on them. Leave valuable comments on blogs in your niche, and include a link to your Facebook Page. The key is to add something that is valuable to the discussion that will intrigue people to click your link and find out more about you. Commenting just to comment won’t get you more Page Likes.

5. Google AdWords

Similar to Facebook ads, Google AdWords is a paid program that can help your Page get an even wider amount of exposure. Pay-per-click (PPC) campaigns can be an effective way to draw in new fans.

6. Other social profiles

Spread the awareness about your Facebook Page by including links in your profiles for other social media platforms, like LinkedIn, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. Even if someone is connecting with you on a different social media platform, they’re likely to be on Facebook as well and may want to connect with you there.

7. Reddit, Quora and other communities

Similar to commenting on blog posts, add value to free communities like Reddit and Quora. These online spaces are full of people looking for answers, discussion and insights. Leave valuable comments and include links back to your Facebook Page.

8. Business cards

Yes, people still communicate face-to-face, and it’s great to have business cards on hand when you’re talking to someone in person about your Facebook Page. They’re unlikely to remember a Facebook URL, which is why it’s great to have it already on paper for them. You can even format the links in the form of QR codes so they can scan it with their mobile device.
