When you add a video to Facebook, a little patience is called for. Uploading can take awhile and, sometimes, it looks like it failed, yet it worked out. There is an option to pick a ‘thumbnail’ view of the video for presentation on the site. It takes a little while too as the video must be processed. You will eventually get a chance to change that if you would like to. Keep looking for a link called ‘Edit’ and that is where you can make those changes.
VRE or ‘virtual real estate’ is valuable space. It’s a little like actual Real Estate, with less overhead and more potential ROI (return on investment) yet time and time again, the unaware will KILL their Facebook page or other online property!
There are very, very few reasons to eliminate an online property – I can’t even think of one – especially if it’s free! It can lay dormant for now and in the future, it will still be there when you want/need it again.
Such sites can serve many purposes and, as they get older, they gain ‘seasoning’ which can benefit you in search engine results. If the site gains ranking and provides a live link to a more active site, you will get the benefit of a ‘referral’ and sites which get more of these appear more relevant to a search engine.
I urge you to keep those sites! You don’t have to worry about them. Just keep a list of all the sites in your control for a time when it may be useful to you again.
Facebook made some changes to their “Pages” which you can put to work for you now.
The changes are in the Admin section and in the timeline posts.
When you edit your page and choose “Admin Roles” you now have 5 ways to designate helpers on your page.
The other thing is the option to ‘post date’ messages to your Facebook page. You start in the page. Click to create a new message. In the lower left, a clock appears. When you click on it, you pick the year, which reveals ‘month’ then ‘day’ then ‘time’ and wait for your post(s) to appear. I’m testing this myself.
Are your clients on Facebook? Why not ‘Like’ them on YOUR Facebook page? You do like them don’t you?
While I don’t think it will make your FB page more ‘attractive’ to the search engines, it does build good will with your clients.
In The book Abundance by Dr. Peter Diamandis and Steven Kotler, they discuss the ‘dematerialization’ occurring around us.* Right now, “‘…we’re fixated on having too much of everything: thousands of friends, vacation homes, cars, all this crazy stuff. But we’re also seeing the tip of the dematerialization wave, like when a phone dematerializes a camera. It just disappears.’”
I think we’re seeing the dematerialization of these as well (see photo). You may see this being passed around on Facebook. I did, just this morning.
Are you advertising there? What are you paying to be ignored? Are you online? Would you like to be?
