RECAP JUNE 19: Magnetize Your Facebook Page With Sherri-Lee Woycik | Grand Connection

Sherri-Lee Woycik

Sherri-Lee Woycik shared that Facebook is a powerful tool to create relationships that last with these 4 steps. She shared that there are 2.2 billion people on Facebook with 60 million active business pages. She told us people want to be educated, informed and be distracted from real life. Her recommendation is for 80% of the content be engaging, fun and interactive and 20% to share your products, sales or promotions.

The 4 steps to attract more clients: The name of your page needs to speak to your ideal prospects and the outcome they want to achieve. Your profile image is best to be a clear picture of you. Your cover image can tell a story in pictures and is best to be changed every week. Sherri-Lee says the image can represent who you are, what you do and speaks to your ideal clients. For your content post everyday and stack up your newsfeed. Start with a quote, post engaging questions, inspiring content to get likes, comments and shares. Create connection and rapport and reply to all comments. And finally FB live for your educational and promotional post.

Magnetize your Facebook Page to Attract More Clients With Ease! With Sherri-Lee Woycik – Facebook Ads and Marketing Expert
Facebook is a massive platform with over 2.2 billion active users, and so many people seem to be making so many connections and tonnes of money without putting in as much effort you feel you are… or so it seems.

There are many factors to consider when marketing on Facebook and you don’t even need to do all the steps, but without being visible, how will anyone even know you and your business page exist?

One of the first things you need to do is to make sure your Facebook page speaks to your ideal prospects, so that they know who you are, what you do and why they should like your Facebook page!

In this 30 minute presentation, Sherri-Lee Woycik will share with you the top 4 steps to take to create a client attracting magnet on your Facebook page, so you can spend less time and money marketing and really start creating meaningful connections with your prospects on Facebook.

In the Mastermind break out groups we will focus on sharing feedback and ideas regarding our own facebook pages and engagement.

Please come prepared with your one minute (elevator speech) for the Real-Time Connections and breakout sessions.
