I’ll get straight to the point… How effectively are Custom Facebook albums used for your direct sales page/group?
My hand will go straight up to admit I’ve not used them to their greatest potential and oh boy do I need to revisit this area….for both business pages and customer groups!
Let’s face it, a few photos or graphics are placed as an album is created with every intention of adding as I go along and then a couple of months down the line I suddenly remember they are there! (along with the odd tumbleweed rolling through!)
Intention is great, but can easily be forgotten. So, I’m giving myself a challenge and that is to put this great ‘tool’ into action. There is no excuse on my part. It is there in place to be used and my goodness, I’m gonna’ use it!
So, where do I begin!!!! What kind of albums and where?
Let’s break it down a bit here. I’ ll cover a couple of areas but I’m sure there may be more for you.
Best sellers – A custom Album made up with photos of say, your latest top 10 .
Offers – A custom Album of any offers you have. Weekly, Monthly.
Bundles – A custom album of ‘bundle buys’.
Reviews – A custom album of customers photo with the product they have bought from you.
Demo’s – A custom album products in action.
Seasonal – A custom album for different times of the year.
Whichever way you look at it, sponsor, recruit or showing an opportunity, a custom album seems a good way to be able to direct your team member to the information they need.
Business Opportunity – A custom album that shares the basics of getting started.
Business Perks – A custom album showing things you have been able to do as a result of your business.
Conferences- A custom album from any meet ups you have.
This is turning into a nice little brainstorm session. Think of how your direct company/ business works and how the custom albums could help you.
How to create a custom album
Setting up custom photo albums is actually easy and fun, the hardest part is choosing the photos that you want to include!
- Go to your Facebook Business Page
- Click on Photos then Create Album
- Choose the photos you wish to add to your custom album
- Write any descriptions you wish to go with each photo
- Name your album something simple that explains the photos inside and you can include a description if you like (website links are awesome here too)
One of the main obstacles I have faced in the past is simply ‘remembering’ to add photos into the right album as I went along and that ,my friend, is where I got into a right old pickle with it all!
Thankfully , with Cinchshare, you can schedule images into the albums. Earlier, I said , I have no excuse…and being able to schedule is my reason.
Well, it seems I have a bit of sorting to do now!
