Tip 1 Set Up a Brand Page
about your category, set up a brand page that will attract people in your
general niche but not specifically for your product. Try to keep the topic as
wide as possible to get as many different buyers to follow your page or group.
For example, if
you’re selling a garlic press, set up a Facebook group for cooks and cooking.
This way – more people are likely to be interested and it should cost much less
to market to them.
Tip 2 Daily Content
The secret to
building a group is to offer great content on a daily basis. It is hard to keep
people’s attention so focus only on sharing images and articles that really
resonate with your audience.
Don’t try to
sell sell sell. Search the Internet and Facebook for useful content that your
users will like and repost it within your group.
Try to share things that add value to your members, and not silly photos.
Tip 3 Set Up Targeted Ads
cheaper to advertise to your own group than total strangers. The ROI can be
really high on these types of ads. Also – if you set up your group right –
there will be many buyers in your group that hadn’t specifically been looking
for the product but now that you are offering a deal – they jump over to Amazon
First build your
group to a decent size by sharing useful content. Then you can switch on
targeted ads aimed at the people within your group. Ideally you want to get to
a few hundred members or more before running any promotions or advertisements.
Tip 4 Don’t Try to Sell Directly
bombarded by advertisements and people claiming that buying their product will
change our world.
pushing a product on your group, give a few members a discount or free item and
ask them to talk about it to your group. People trust referrals and word of
mouth much more than your direct sales message. Start by asking for 10 people,
and if there is more demand you can expand the offer later.
Tip 5 Single Use Coupon
Make sure when
setting up a promotion on Amazon that you use single-use coupons only, and that
you uncheck for the promotion to be displayed on your page.
You don’t want
customers to see the code for a free or heavily discounted item. You can also
share your AMZ Tracker deal to your own facebook group to get more people
interested and buying your product. Remember not to overload your group with
sales messages but share things people will like 9 out of 10 posts.
Tip 6 Keep Building Your List
Keep targeting a
wider audience and find pictures, news stories and reports to share with them.
trying to sell to them, try to make them want to log in every day to see what
valuable content you are sharing. Build up trust with your audience so that
when you recommend something they want to buy.
Also – try to
get members to interact with your posts by asking for comments or for their
opinion on something. The more people interact and are engaged the more likely
they are to buy your product when you do promote it to them – as you have built
the trust already.
Tip 7 Best Type of Post
that sharing link posts in the evening with your own custom image will lead to
the greatest amount of interaction with your fan base. So create a compelling
blog story and use Facebook to share the info. You do not always have to create
100% unique posts.
People are interested in learning about new trends, products and ideas – so as you come across these share them.
This is also a great way to get new product feedback – as you can share your ideas with your own audience before ever launching the product. The more say they have on your product in the early stages of development the more likely they are to buy later too.
