Setting up a Facebook page for your business is a snap. Getting people to comment on your Facebook posts is not.
The truth is, most users of social media today have become spoiled. Now that the medium has matured, people no longer feel the need to interact and engage with those who post. Everyone is using social media. And everyone wants comments. But few are taking the time to slow down and actually leave them.How to Encourage Facebook Friends to Comment on Your Posts
If you want Facebook interaction today, you have to ask for it directly – or post something they can’t resist.
Make your posts interesting – People can only stand to read about you and the homes you’re selling for so long. So write about the larger real estate industry in your city, post facts from industry reports, share some of the personal stories of your clients (with their permission, of course).
Having trouble thinking of interesting topics? Find a few other sales professionals with interesting Facebook pages and use some of the same content ideas. Or, ask your readers for ideas: Just post, “Dear readers: What kinds of things would you like to see me post?”
