To boost your interaction with Facebook followers...

  1. Ask a question directed to your followers!
  2. Think of question topics that will spur new blog ideas for you.

To encourage even more interaction on Facebook...

  1. Invite your followers to ask YOU their questions.
  2. You might have to give them some ideas.
  3. Invite them to pick your brain on market activity, home features, REOs, etc.

Announce new listings and open houses...

  1. Once you've added a new listing to your website, make sure to post a direct link to this property on Facebook.
  2. Use the same tips of how from step #1 above.

Bring in new visitors to your website!

  1. Don't forget--the greatest asset of your website is the home search!
  2. Frequently post direct links to your custom search page onto your Facebook wall.
  3. Entice followers by giving a different intro each time: "Looking for a new home in the _______ school district?" , "View the NEWEST homes on the market in ________" , "Like the _______ historic district? Take a look at what's on the market now!"

Just keep followers interested and make sure they are hearing from you and seeing activity on your Facebook page as often as possible!
