Stand Out Using Facebook Notes

Are you engaging your friends and followers on Facebook? Probably not enough. These days you have to always be in engagement mode. You cannot simply post something static or bland like. “Hey, buy my shi*t!!” Well, you can but you won’t get far. You must be creative. If you’re not, start learning so you won’t get left behind.

I love Facebook. I will admit it. It’s a great resource we all have at our fingertips to get our messages out. It’s an amazing engagement tool. Are you utilizing it to its fullest potential? Probably not. There are so many aspects to Facebook and I find that some are greatly underutilized. One that we’ll talk about today is Facebook Notes.

You can post a Note, which is really just an article or piece of information, then tag relevant Facebook friends and Facebook (fan/biz) Pages to it. It’s a great way to get something viral on Facebook.

Here’s an example of one I posted recently: GoGirls Interview with G.U.T.S.

Here’s what I love. This Note shows up on my personal Facebook Wall as well as those I tag. I tagged one of the band members I’m friends with on Facebook as well as the band and GoGirls.

Note: DO NOT tag non-relevant people or Pages in your Notes. It’s spammy, will make you look bad and will piss people off.

How do you write a Note? Easy. Just head to your personal Facebook profile and click on Notes.

Next, you’ll see Write a Note in the upper right hand side of your page. Click on that and follow the steps.

This is my Facebook Quick Tip for today. Try it out and let me know what you think. I’m eager to hear about your results!

    You know, I don’t know why as musicians we continue to lose sight of the engagement part. Maybe it’s because we get sucked into the major promotional blitzes of these major artists, and we try to keep up. Not remembering that they too started out at the bottom, and have major promotional teams working for them. Slow and steady wins the race right?

    I’ve seen notes used effectively to promote a regional tour, rather than creating lots of individual events. The events are becoming so overwhelming, it’s easy for people to just ignore them … Especially when people invite all their friends, including those who are not geographically close to the event location. Don’t get me wrong, I think events are worthwhile when used judiciously, But i definitely like the idea of being creative with notes.

    Thanks for your two cents, Jared. I do believe that slow and steady wins the race. Too many artists try too hard, too fast then get disappointed when it doesn’t work out. I say make a plan to work your promotions. Have clearly defined goals. Work it every day. Engagement is key!
