A Farming Industry Business Owner Using Facebook To Grow Their Business! You gotta see this

Farming Industry On Facebook Pages

They DOUBLED their engagement and INCREASED their organic and paid likes by using “non-traditional” methods for their industry!

Every single week my client care team gets emails and questions on our Facebook page regarding our products, masterminds and the services we offer. In the top three list of questions we hear is the concern that Facebook might not be relevant or viable for ‘their unique business.’ 

You’ve heard me say it over and over again- there are very few, if any, businesses that can’t use Facebook to increase their exposure, attract more clients and close more sales. When Karen wrote me the other day about the business they are in and how our Inner Circle mastermind has changed everything for them, I knew I had to show you guys this story!

Excuse me…. they are in the FARMING industry. It’s not every day that you hear of people growing their business online, let alone through social media, in this industry. Typically the farming industry is built on word of mouth, local advertising, trusted repeat business and other tried-and-true traditional methods. But Karen and her husband did not have a big cash-budget to grow their brand they knew there had to be a better way.

She jumped into my Inner Circle mastermind and she got to work.

I LOVE where she says she not only watched videos every day, but she IMPLEMENTED what she is learning. She didn’t just keep learning and doing nothing (which really locks the brain into lazy mode and will make you very confused). She was active, moving forward and doing what she was learning.

Confession time: I’ve NEVER marketed a business in this industry. I’m very aware of what it takes as we used to live right next to a large community of farmers and Amish people. But taking this kind of industry into social media is not something we have first hand experience in. But that didn’t matter, because people are people and if you have relationship with them, connect right where they are at, and serve them better than the next guy, you WILL increase engagement and you WILL increase your sales.

It’s the same way in a brick and mortar. If you’re not willing to serve, you will starve. Plain and simple. If you don’t take the time to look your perspective customers in the eyes, hear what they are saying, have an honest and authentic conversation with them about what matters to them, they will NOT pay you money for what you offer and they most likely will say things like, “I’m just looking, thanks” and end of paying your competitor down the street who is kind and interested in them!

It’s no different online.

Karen is on her way to really tapping into the money stream that exists on Facebook for small business owners. It didn’t take her months and months and thousands of dollars, just some good ole fashioned sweat and learning equity.

Where are YOU today in your business? If what you’re doing currently isn’t working, isn’t it time you tried something new that is proven to work for people who are serious about their business?

You can be the ‘host or hostess with the mostest’ on Facebook and make a huge impact in your industry, have fun doing it, attract a ton of customers and make more money, while you sleep. I’ll show you how in my Inner Circle mastermind AND you’ll get a chance to meet Karen!  www.arealchange.com/innercircle

PR: Forbes Top 20 Social Media Influencer Shares How Facebook Marketing Has Changed Communication For Brands, Artists and How Business Is Done Globally

 Sandi Krakowski, Indiana resident, has been featured three times in the last 30 days in  Forbes for her unconventional marketing methods. Recently featured as both a Top 20 Women In Social Media and one of The Top 50 Social Media Influencers in the world by Forbes, it’s plain to see her methods not only work, but marketing experts are paying attention.

In a recent interview by Forbes she shared how she built a business page which serves over 120,000 people in under a year, “Social media is a process of good relationships, copy that speaks to your ideal clients and truly caring about your audience.”

Living in Indiana among a small community she shares how this inspires everything she does, We went from 10,000 on Twitter to 114,000 because everything we do works synergistically together. My personal FB reach was at 5000 (FB limit) but only  1118 of my friends are connected to my FB business page. (We shouldn’t spam  our personal pages with business) This shows that the clients we’ve attracted to  my Facebook page are there for business and not just friends ‘hanging out’. Our  model teaches, “Loving Your Customers” just as the merchants of old used to do when everyone came on horse and buggy. Giving personal touch on all of our  platforms built substantial growth overall.”

Typical engagement ratios on most business pages through Facebook range between 4-8%. Krakowski boasts a ratio of engagement with more than 50% of her entire audience, paving the way that reveals the golden thread of relationship is still working.

A direct response marketing and internet expert for more than 17 years online, she’s no stranger when it comes to good customer service, brand presence and marketing strategies.

Being connected to their audience, Sandi Krakowski and the entire A Real Change staff pay careful attention to their following. “One thing I teach,” says Sandi “is check-in for 5 minutes, every hour.  Then if you’re posting 8 x per day, that’s less than an hour per day. 5 hours per week on social media. We won’t lose our life or our focus that way.  It also keeps us very connected.  As my following grew I made it a priority to spend 2-3 hours per day interacting.”

This top social media influencer is changing the way business is done!  Even with big brands, relationship matters. Krakowski shares daily on her Facebook and Twitter feeds how to connect, engage and grow a following for any business.
