Getting engagement from your Facebook Fans is critical to turning them into customers. Sadly most folks are really good at getting engagement on their personal Facebook profiles, but once they start trying to run a Facebook Fan Page for their business they forget that they are talking to the same people. Yes, people.

This really is the secret of Facebook engagement—we’re talking to people.

In this presentation, I will give you my keys to Facebook engagement and help to get your mind thinking about how to get the same level of engagement for your business’ Fan Page that you probably get in your personal Facebook newsfeed. I’ll then take that framework and match it up against a review of many examples of successfully engaging Facebook posts.

At the end of this Facebook Marketing presentation you will have a good understanding of the basics of Facebook engagement and lots of ideas and examples to build your own Facebook engagement campaigns.

Many Facebook Fan Pages become ghost towns in short order. This happens for one of two reasons and both tend to be somewhat intertwined: you run out of creative content ideas and your audience never really engages.


Helping you avoid that death spiral is the goal of this Facebook Marketing - Ideas for Engaging post ideas presentation. Inside I will give you lots of ideas and examples of how to draw in new audience and get those existing Facebook Fans engaged.

Try a few of these strategies and creative tactics and soon your Facebook Fan Page will come alive and with buzzing activity—fans liking, commenting, and sharing. All of that activity will encourage others to get involved and will spark your creative juices to service your new fan base more diligently.

Grab a pen and paper and flip through this slide presentation with the intent of filling your notebook with specific content ideas and campaign strategies. Work through the ideas in an active way. Think about each example and how you can apply the technique to your own business. The gems are here. Polish them and get the reward.
