So You Have a Facebook Business Page, Now What?

By
Real Estate Agent with Missy Caulk TEAM

Do you have a Facebook fan business page? Most of you probably do... if you don't then this post isn't for you.

What are you doing with your Business page?

Most of us know by now that social media is all about engagement, that means talking to one another and getting to know each other. I wrote a few weeks ago, about Postlings, the way you can get an email when someone LIKES or comments on your business page.

Today I want to talk about analytics or what Facebook is calling Insights.

Activity on Facebook Business Page

Insights is only visible to you or any administrator on your business page. Just like you track your analytics on your blogs or web-sites, Insights allows you to track your data on your Business page.

Here are a few graphs I captured to show you what Insights looks like.

I have two business pages on Facebook, Ann Arbor Real Estate Talk and A2BreakingNews.

Insights Graph for A2BreakingNews on Facebook

When the fan pages, first started I remember we were all trying to run around and get our friends to LIKE it, because we wanted to be able to get those vanity URL's. After a while we all got nagged blasted to death by our friends. LOL

On my A2BreakingNews page, which was set up by Patrick Katano, I didn't invite anyone. I have just enjoyed seeing it slowly grow. And on my Ann Arbor Real Estate Talk page, except for the folks I invited at the beginning, I don't ask anyone.

I mean seriously why would someone in CA or any other state want to follow any news on Ann Arbor unless they graduated from the University of Michigan or lived here.

But, if you have a Business Page then by all means you should occassionally look at your Insights to see if it is growing and what people are interested in.

Demographics on Facebook

Who is reading your business page?

What age are they?

Where are they coming from?

Where are they coming from?

Are you growing?

One of the features I like the best and get the most out of when reviewing Insights is what impressions and interactions came from the different posts. I have set up the app networked blogs for my business page, so that my blog posts go straight into my business page. It just makes it simplier for me.

There are many more Insights to check out on your business page and learn from the data.

Are you using Insights?

What do you think?

Are you learning from the data?

Missy,

I think you have ESP and wrote this post just for me!  Have recently asked "what now" since I just did my FB business page.  Thanks a million, mind reader.

Missy - this is excellent and very timely for me.  After Rebar Jan 11th, I finally took the plunge the following weekend to set up my biz page.  A few days later, I set up a whole bunch of posts on hootsuite w/ my fave blog posts between now and end of Feb.  Checking in periodically.  I really do need to take a look at the analytics, although I prob. should wait until I have at least 1 month worth of data.  I'm going to bookmark & read your other post.

I do have a business page and am trying to learn to use it, but with a new blog too, it is hard to learn it all at once. My biggest problem is that when I find something I want to post on my FB, it goes to my personal page, not my business page, still trying to figure out how to do it. Any ideas?

I see the analytics when they're emailed each week.  Right now, they don't tell me much as I don't do much with them.  I'm working on getting better on the fan pages.

Jeanne, I had that problem too. I can't remember how I did it. It was the networked blog app on Facebook. I think you just add your feed there. Let me play around with it and get back to you.

Thanks for explaining that.  One of my priorities lately is to learn the importance of FB, and how to "work it".  This insight (no pun intended) will help.  Have a great day !

I checked this out a few days ago and put it on my to-do list to go back soon, when I had more time.  One thing I did notice is that I have one business page with my name and my other business page, without my name or any specific reference to me, has grown without any invitations to double the size of the one with my name - in every category.

I forgot all about that goodie.  I'll be checking it more often and learning where my visitors are coming from. Good marketing is knowing your market.

Can you have more than one bussiness page?  I'd like to have 5 or so but all real estate:

Golf Course Properties

Homes Near Parks

Walk Score Homes

Vacation Homes

Homes Under 200K

Condos

Best Home Value of The Week

Can we do this?
