A way Facebook Fans have more control!

With Facebook minimising
the ability for Business Owners to reach their fan base, with the
introduction of the “PROMOTE” functionality where by business owners are
required to pay for their visibility, by standard, less than 10% of
fans on any given page will see a given post at any one time.

At present, our testing shows that even with our 3700+ Facebook Fans.  our
regular posts are only seen by 150-200 Facebook fans, some of those are
not even guaranteed to be on our fan list. 

With that said, Fans and Business Owners alike have been trying to work
out means to utilise the system to their best advantage, and although
Facebook haven’t made it easy. Natalie Crowe Designs has put together a
short introduction on how YOU can get the most out of the pages visible
from your personal account. Businesses can also advise their fans to
take action as well.

The steps below will ensure you get all the latest information from
Natalie Crowe Designs; your one stop shop when it comes to getting a
website,  Website Design services based in Cessnock, NSW, will be seen.

Click “Add to Interest Lists…”  link and follow the prompts to add it to one of your lists.

NOTE: If you do not have a list already setup, first time around you will need to set one up.  The steps below outline how to create a new LIST and add the page to your list.

In the next screen make the page has been selected  (it’ll have the blue tick in the bottom right hand corner) and press NEXT

 Step 4 Give your new list a name and click DONE. 

In this example, we have used “My Fav Businesses”, we could have put “Website Design Cessnock” or any other term or phrase you’d like to use for a list name.

We believe this will now list all posts that are posted by the specific page listed above to be visible on the newsfeeds and facebook ticker. 

Extra Bonus:

Favourites, Adverts, Pages,  Groups, Apps,  and a new one called INTERESTS

If you scroll down to the INTERESTs heading you can click on the names of the LISTS you’ve created and see all the news feeds from those business pages exclusively.

Click the name of the List you’ve created and it will display the posts from the pages on the list. 

Time to set this weeks goals

As a means of focusing on being more productive, I’ve started pre-organising my week. Scheduling  events if I can help it and working with my time more efficiently.

I have been working on a list of tasks to complete which I have been  diligently working on, however whilst completing client paid work and my Search Engine Optimisation course, it’s been a slightly heavy workload. 

‘They’ believe that you should in order to achieve something you need to take ACTION and  realistically unless it’s life threatening, you should really only be spending 30-90 seconds to make a decision.  You can always CHANGE that decision if it’s not working out.  But 90 second tops! 

I made the decision this morning that I was going to take action and make a move on some of the tasks I had been procrastinating on for my own business and needed to make a move on for my client’s businesses.

5 Main Goals for this week.

1) Review & Complete outstanding modules for the SEO Course we’re completing by 5pm Thursday

2) Update NCD website with new portfolio items to generate more interest in the business.
Posting 20 updated client project photos by 5pm Tuesday afternoon.

EDIT:  ACTION TAKEN – I have completed the main part of this goal, but I’d like to style the gallery to make it more visually appealing.   Portfolio can be found here

3) Create achievable to-do list template to aid productivity:

You can download our basic template here:  Monday To Do List
We have created individual files for each day, but it’s just a matter of going in and changing the day.

4) Review and recreate NCD questionnaire with more focus on goals and benefits of our services rather technical jargon – Goal : to be more user friendly – by Wednesday 5pm

5) Write Minimum 2 new blog posts before 5pm friday.
although we’ve successfully completed this  goal TODAY,  I’d like to continue to post twice a day, and modify the goal  from posting twice a day  to sharing minimum of 2 blog posts a week.


6) By 5pm Friday I will have a schedule drafted for 22nd – 27th of October.

This is in addition to our regular client work.
