    What is/was the most successful Facebook promotion you've ever done? Was it a temporary price special? Just a plain old post with a fabulous before and after? Were you announcing a new service? Basically, what works for you?

    Hope all y'all have a great and busy week!

    I do a lot of free Facebook posts and paid promotions.

    I have people tell me "I saw your Facebook post" and book jobs.

    Was it free or paid, who knows?

    I also have past customers and friends who mention that they have seen my posts pretty frequently. So I do know people are at least seeing them.

    I post once a week to about 55 different groups, in addition to the paid posts.

    Yesterday I created a promotion for a unique service. This is going to let me know if the post worked or not.

    I do have a friend who does paver sealing and cleaning and gets a ton of business from Facebook. But, he is pretty scientific about it and tracks ads and fine tunes them along the way.

    But even at that, when he does have a successful fine tuned ad, it will peter out and he has to start again.

    This is my typical type post. I don't do it often enough. I post most often on the trading post type pages in towns we serve letting folks know we are working there and if they would like an estimate or get on the schedule if it's not already full. Especially towns 60 miles out. We have pretty good luck.
    I paid $7 or $10 For this boost. My population is rural and I mean rural. The target population for this post was less than 18,000 people which covered 3 counties.
    IF anyone is doing something unique or brilliant - I would love to know what y'all are doing.
    Thanks, Greentech, I appreciate your insight.

    Look forward to it. We have a big promotion with the Humane Society in early September and this week we cleaned the boys and girls club. We do lots of things that we're not patting our backs or promoting. Change is coming. I just an assistant - well, I should say accountability manager is a better title.

    Best in terms of what? Engagement? Direct sales? Video views? Lead acquisition?

    Just like everything else, they will never be a single bullet. Brand-building overtime will yield you the best results. That means trying a lot of different things. Playing in community groups. Doing lots of value-based content. And then occasionally running a direct sale campaign. That is what will yield you the best results.
