 5 Advanced Tips for Using YourFacebook Page to   Generate Leads

If you’re interested in generating more leads for your business through the use of more advanced techniques, this article will show you how.

It’s possible to turn Facebook into your most powerful lead-generating resource, and it can be nearly completely automated.

1. Incite Attention

Far too many Facebook pages exist simply to serve as a virtual business card for a company.

Break the mold and provide entertaining content that makes readers want to share your posts. It can be anything from a motivational quote to a funny meme.

2. Grow the Audience 

It goes without saying, but a larger audience generates more leads than a smaller one.

 3. Diversify with Email

It’s long been an adage of marketing that nothing reaches readers better than direct mail. In today’s virtual world, that means building an email list.

 4. Include Calls to Action

At the end of your Facebook posts, do you invite the readers to take additional steps, or do you simply end the post?

 Including a call to action serves multiple purposes: on one hand, it lets readers know that there are more steps they can take. On the other, it provides a clear, succinct way to end the post.

  5. Use Events to Create Leads

 You can create a Facebook post, and it will generate some interest and possibly even leads for your company. However, an event is much more visible and allows people to sign up.

FHBA is constantly seeking to partner with companies that provide the best available services for our members.

We are proud to announce our new partnership with SBA Loan Group, LLC, to create the exclusive FHBA member benefit – SmartBiz Loan Program. SBA Loan Group, LLC, specializes in helping companies apply for and close Small Business Administration (SBA) backed loans.

Through the SmartBiz Loan Program, low-cost loans are designed to allow access to inexpensive working capital enabling you to hire staff, purchase inventory, market your firm, accomplish acquisitions and other business uses.

A quick 5-10 minute phone call with SBA Loan Group can qualify you and your firm. I strongly encourage you to see how these loans can help your practice.

Since the SBA backs these loans, the benefits to your company are invaluable. For instance,

Yearly interest rates are between 5% to 6.25%;

Your firm can borrow from $100,000 to $5,000,000 for working capital;

Working capital loans are 10-year terms and can never be canceled by the bank as long as loan payments are current;

There are very few restrictions on how you use the loan; and

Your firm can borrow up to $14,000,000 to purchase real estate for your corporate use.

Call (850) 601-4464 to see if this financing opportunity is an option for your practice
