In this episode we are going to be talking Facebook Pages and how to get the most out your Facebook Pages for your business. You are going to learn 3 great tips that will help a brand new Facebook Page or one that has been just floating around awhile. I am also going to discuss some quirks in the way Podcasts are rated in iTunes currently.
How To Get The Most Out Of Your Facebook Page
On my recent trip to Blogworld NYC in June, I was surprised to see a familiar face in the hallway between presentations. It happened to be David Foster of Hubze. I had been a customer of theirs for almost a year. His company was one of the first in the industry to offer an easy solution for businesses and consultants to create awesome looking Facebook Pages. I don’t know why I was so surprised to see him but it didn’t stop me from introducing myself.
We had some time before the next presentation and had a great conversation about the ever changing landscape that has become Facebook, David’s recent entry into the Podcasting realm and general stuff about Blogworld. I was thrilled to learn that he had also been “trained” in podcasting by my friend Cliff Ravenscraft of the Podcast Answerman. (Most of the people at Blogworld had been trained by Cliff or knew of him).
That night when I got back to my apartment (it was close to 11 pm) I found David’s Blogworld Report from that very day and had a listened. It was entertaining and informative. However I was envious. He had seen at least three celebrities while walking the streets of New York while I had seen NONE. Not fair.
David and I had a Skype chat for about 35 minutes the other day. I wanted to get my listeners an experts opinion on how to get the most out of your Facebook Fan Page. I got that and a lot more.
Here are some of the new products David’s company has available to help you with your Facebook Pages:
Page Builder App, Sweepstakes App, Deals App, Video Contest App, Photo Contest App, Evergreen Launch App (in development) and EZ Leads App (in development).
Three Ingredients For A Successful Fan Page
- Decide on your brand
- Engage your community
- Offer 95% content & 5% offers
David has given listeners of The Local Method a special discount code to save a whopping 25% on any of the products Hubze has. Just use “localmethod” (no quotes and all lower case) at checkout. See what they have here: Hubze Products
Oh, did I tell you David is a HUGE fan of Christopher Walken like me?
The iTunes Podcast Review Problem
On the show I talk about how there could be an inaccuracy in how podcasts are rated in iTunes. It seems when more people agree with a review, it pushes that particular review to the top of the list for people to see. This may not be the best way to show the quality of a podcast that may have had a slow start but has now got it together.
Make sure to not only rate and review your favorite podcasts to help the producers but to also “Agree with …” good reviews in iTunes.
This was the Top review because “6 out of 6 listeners found this helpful”
What are your thoughts on this in the iTunes Podcast review system?
David Foster | ceo and founder
I have been a social media marketer going on 3 years. I have been an Internet marketer for over 14. I was a spammer back when that meant entrepreneur. I have always worked hard for what I have and never went to college. I did however tour some colleges just out of high school playing music, so I guess I lived the life without the large loans. I never liked working for other people. I always knew that someone else was making a fortune from my hard labor; I built houses and then sold cars. I do what I love and love what I do! Oh and I love my wife, kids and dogs. Kitty…you’re OK I guess…
