How to Reach a Massive Audience with Digital Marketing
Tom Ferry - Your Coach
 
 
Are you reaching a large enough audience with your marketing efforts? In today’s episode I’m opening up my playbook and sharing the marketing strategy that fuels the success of the #TomFerryShow.
 
 

Key Tactics to Raising Reach, Awareness, and Engagement!

Be Authentic 

Be human … “speak” in a conversational tone, in the language that’s native to the channel.  For example, Twitter is a conversation in 140 characters, Instagram is visual, Facebook can be a longer post with images.  

2. Consistency

Consistency is everything to building trust with your audience. For example, the #TomFerryShow comes out every Tuesday.  

3. Respond and Engage

Show that you’re listening and appreciate all engagements.  Be sure that you are responding to your clients within 24 hours. Even if it is just liking their comment. 

4. Quality and Good Marketing

It’s your brand! How do you want to represent yourself and your business?


The Best FREE Tools

1. HootSuite or Buffer for scheduling

Scheduling tools like Hootsuite or Buffer are great for advanced planning.  However, it’s important to stay time relevant and review scheduled posts often.  Personally, I’m not a big fan of scheduled posts but I also have a team behind me supporting the social efforts.   

2. Bitly for tracking and shortening

Bitly allows you to shorten your links and track where traffic is coming from. Knowing where your social reach is coming from helps you maximize your execution of multi channel marketing plan. 

  • Know the number of clicks on each link
  • Which social platform visitors came from
  • Which day received most clicks
     

3. Mailchimp for email marketing

Mailchimp is one of the simplest Email Marketing programs for small businesses.  

4. Google Analytics 

Google Analytics gives you data into where your web visitors are coming from, how long they are staying, which pages have the most traffic and much, much more!They also offer a simple online certification to help you master setting up your account and analyzing the data.

Tip of the Week - Fintrac Requirements



Use the NEW 801 Form with All Offers


Copies of All Offers with Form 801 are to be Faxed to :    
1-855-270-3300 

Or Emailed to 
Offers@Suttonstore.com

Need an 801 Form or Office Schedule B - visit www.SuttonSchedules.com
 

Do Not Send Copies to our General Fax Number of Office Email so we can keep these forms Separate and Easily Accessible when Reco Calls.

** IF YOU ARE THE LISTING AGENT **  Give Instructions to Agents where you would like them to send Form 801.
 

Please ensure you Add a Note in the Brokerage Comment Section of your Listing.    Please have offers emailed to Your Email Address or Personal Fax - then FORWARD a copy to the Above for the Brokerage.
 

READ THIS CAREFULLY!  Understand what info is being disclosed – its not as transparent as you think.

RECO will only disclose the number of written offers received to the person who requested it.

RECO will not release any detail regarding the offers, or identify the people who made the offers.

So if you are the Listing Rep, do not get fooled into thinking you must disclose the names of those Agents with offers.   You still have a duty to Privacy.
