Title: Facebook Member Spotlight Fall 2012
Post by: beadthing on October 01, 2012, 12:52:32 PM
Hi everyone, we are going to do this spotlight again.  We will do it just a bit different from last time.  Rather than separate into groups, I would like to try to do it similarly to the Twitter ring.

Sign up to participate and then when I have enough people on the list, I will post the list in a separate thread entitled "FB Spotlight List" on the Facebook Member Spotlight Board. 

We will then each Take the name above our own and on your own facebook fan page , or personal page if you don't have a fan page, create a post about the member being spotlighted.  Don't forget to tag the member you are spotlighting in your post like this (@abeadthing) or whoever you are posting about.  This will direct readers to that member with a simple click on the highlighted members name.

Because facebook posts move so fast and people are on at various times during the day, I recommend a post at three different times a day for a week. I know this seems like a lot, but we are all on facebook anyway, so it should not be too difficult to manage. If you can't, then at least once at a time when your facebook page has the most traffic.  Upload a photo from the members shop or photos on their own page if you like to bring attention to your post.

Recommended times for posting are 1) mid-morning 10am-12) 2) mid-afternoon 2pm-4pm 3) evening 7pm-9pm).  These seem to be the times that there are the most people on the pages

Please respond to this thread if you are interested or if you have any questions. Be sure when you sign up you give me your facebook fan page or personal page url so that we will be able to click and post.   Once I receive enough responses, I will post the list and we can get started.  This should help us all for the holiday season.  So let's get facebooking.

Thanks. and I will sign up now.

www.facebook.com/abeadthing

Happy facebooking!!!!!!!!! 8)

EDIT:

Please also "like" the persons fan page and tag it with your own fan page name example (liked from @abeadthing)  everyone should 'like' your page in return, this will enable us to continue to share each other for more promotion long term. 

Thanks

Doing what you did by posting here is signing up, however, I need your facebook fan page url.  Do you have facebook fan page?  This is about posting on one anothers fan pages of their work to promote each other.  Please post your FB page url and I will get you on the list.

Thanks

Also, you might want to get your shop completed, I know you are new here, but you really need a banner and your photos are really small and very hard to see.  Also no shop policies or bio.  These are all really really helpful things to get done so that when people do try to link through to your shop from facebook they will be able to see you well.  I am sure that others will also have some helpful tips to help you get ready to be shown to the world.

Question, I would like to have our fb fan page promo'ed but I would like to put our reciprocal promo links on our other fb fan page that is all about jewelry designing components and artisan jewelry, a more targeted place for this, is that possible?

Our fan page: https://www.facebook.com/beadsbot
The Page we will post from:  https://www.facebook.com/HandmadeArtBeads
Let's put both on the list to be promo'd, will that work for you?

Andrew makes a good point, let's NOT get started just yet.  I will hold open the sign ups until Sunday 12 midnight.  At that point, I will put up a new list and we can get started on Monday.  How does that sound.

Thanks Andrew, I was wondering how to keep up with all the additional sign ups, this way no one will get left out.  I was just eager to get everyone started.

Not major writing exercises, just post from someone else onto your FB page.  Take a look at the other thread and the full instructions are there.  Let me know if you still want in. I will put you on the list.  We start on Monday.

I don't think full blog posts are necessary to promote an item / shop.  If you wanted to you could click the "Share" button on the item in the shop above you (in the thread), and write a little blip about the item, in the space where it allows you to write things, and post it.  Just like anything else you would post or share from say Youtube or StumbleUpon.  Easy Peasy!

I am a bit confused.  I am not clear with some of them what they want to promote as there is no shop included.  I also found that a number of the links did not work.
Title: Re: Facebook Member Spotlight Fall 2012
Post by: beadthing on October 08, 2012, 12:55:07 AM
If a shop is listed then they would like for you to promote items in their shop.  If not then go to their facebook page and share their page or something they posted there.

Not sure why the links did not work as I clicked on each and everyone of them before I posted the list.  I'll check it out.

Hope this answers your question.
Title: Re: Facebook Member Spotlight Fall 2012
Post by: beadthing on October 08, 2012, 01:03:34 AM
Ok, check and found 2 links that did not work. Not sure whey, they did when I posted them as I have either requested them as friends or liked all the pages.

Tip, you could always check the photos on their FB and share from that.  Just sharing them is the idea with a blurb of support.

Thanks for the heads up on the links.

Josie perhaps you could help with this one.  I have the shop for Ginas Corner Crafts on the Facebook Member Spotlight list as she gave it to me.  However, when you click on that link it takes you directly to the handmade artists main page.  I have had this happen before but this time I need this link to work properly.  Can you help?

Title: Re: Facebook Member Spotlight Fall 2012
Post by: beadthing on October 08, 2012, 09:16:01 PM
Not absolutely necessary to do 3, I only suggested it because of a. time differences around, b. I found better results when I post my things several times a day because most people are not like me and have it up on puter all the time refreshing every few minutes to make sure I don't miss any posts by artists that I have promised to share regularly.

Also, I have been told I think it was John who said we should post several times a day because other people are on at different times. 

Rambling I know, does this make sense.

I don't know why I am having this problem.  I tried to post a picture of a piece from John's site and only the code for the page showed up on FB.  I had no problem the last time we did the Facebook Spotlights.  I am mystified.  The first time I posted, I took one from the Rasmussen FB page because I gave up on the other, but it wasn't something that was for sale.
Title: Re: Facebook Member Spotlight Fall 2012
Post by: beadthing on October 09, 2012, 06:54:54 AM
I think that is something that Josey is working on.  It has to do with the shops being taken to https: instead of just http.  for whatever reason, I have seen comments by Andrew that Facebook does not allow the download fo the photos.  What I do is right click on the photo and then save as to my computer, go make my post on fb and add the photo, then delete the photo from my computers.  I know it is an extra step, but I think it is better than just showing the url. 

It happend to me yesterday as well.
Title: Re: Facebook Member Spotlight Fall 2012
Post by: Uniqlets on October 09, 2012, 07:51:02 AM
I will have to figure out what that means in Mac terms.  No right click.  Thanks.

Post by: beadthing on October 09, 2012, 08:23:18 AM
I will have to figure out what that means in Mac terms.  No right click.  Thanks.
If you were online and wanted to save a photo for further review or inspiration, how would you do that on a Mac?  That would be the same thing. I don't think I am infringing on anyone's rights since I delete the photos as soon as I post and I don't reuse the photographs for other than promoting the artists.
Title: Re: Facebook Member Spotlight Fall 2012
Post by: TheAlchemistsVessel on October 09, 2012, 08:50:44 AM
I too was having troubles with the secure https instead of http.  I do the following if the photo is being persnickety!

iMac

Right Click the photo
Save (it may read "download")
My computer saves it to iPhoto
Click the iPhoto file
Click the Drop Down Menu and Export the photo to whatever photo program you use.
When on Facebook, use the Photo / Video button on the Status and upload the photo, paste the link the item in the comment box and click post.  It should appear on your page.

No move to the next person on the list and if you can do it post 3 times morning afternoon and evening, if you can't no big deal just once will do.

PLEASE PLEASE don't forget to come back here and post what you did on your FB page.  That way we can all click on it and go and comment.  That is what is needed to make the show up a lot.  It helps the promotion of everyone. the commenter and the person being posted.

I'm still not doing something right. 

I am posting on my fan page, but it won't let me comment as T.A.V. only as Alix Browning (sorry you'll have to put up with Mortia until November). 

The links will not cooperate, I get an error message from Facebook that the link does not exist.  I'm going to try again.

I think this is the right link. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=424639860930645&set=a.250455685015731.60217.239750632752903&type=1&theater

Unless the shop owner here at HAS has specifically requested that the Facebook Member Spotlight promo a shop other than the one here, please only promote the HAS shop.  We want to promo the artists no matter what but this is also to bring attention to Handmade Artists Shops. 

Those who have specifically requested promo for a specific location are shared in the list with their facebook information, otherwise use their HAS shop.

Thank you.

Alix, I have shared some of your things and commented, so not sure why you are not seeing them.  I also try to remember to do as I ask others and post the url here for others to go and comment. 

If others don't comment on each it's okay but we need to try to do as much as we possibly can so that this gets spread around as much as possible.  It really does help.

I do know that if you do not make a comment on items on your FB page it may be that those will not show up again.  However,  this typically applies to friends and fan pages that you have liked. 
 

So if you have liked pages, please share their products/posts or at least make a short comment for them to keep popping into your news feed. Otherwise they will disappear and you won't even realize it.

I think my comments are up to date.

I think maybe I didnt read the instructions properly.  Dont worry about it I wont participate this time. I am sorry I must have signed up too late and I dont quite know how to navigate yet.  I liked the Beadthing but I did it under my name and not my page so I'm not quite sure how to do it.  I'll just try to figure it out and come back.
Thats why I dont particpate in the chats and stuff .  Thanks though

No, no, no.  Participate.  I have put you on the list.  I just need to know who you posted for.

Also, it would be helpful if you put in your signature the links for your shop, facebook, twitter etc, etc, etc  so that we all can promote your shop as well.

You are doing fine, no problem, have a question, please just post here or send me a PM.  I am happy to help you navigate anything you need to.  Also, always like others pages under your name (personal page) that way it shows up in their numbers.  If you use your fan page/business page it will not show up in the numbers of the person that you like and many of us track these numbers. 

Thanks and please, please please participate

Hey Pam;
I liked from my personal page Silver Griffon Designs and The Alchemist Vessel.  I commented from my page.  I hope it came out right.  If these two shops don't see my
likes please let me know and I will do it over.  New at this.  I think I almost got it though. :-\

Yesterday I did A Bead Thing and Uniqlets. Will do more later.

Remember if you're not friends with each other the personal page posts may not show up in a feed or allow you to comment depending on settings, however if your Fan Pages are set to Public, everyone should be able to comment and like the posts shared on the fan page.

And I just realized I said what Pam has mentioned above.  D'oh!  Ignore me today, I am pretty scattered.  :P
Title: Re: Facebook Member Spotlight Fall 2012
Post by: beadthing on October 22, 2012, 07:13:56 PM
Flowers by Budding Creations has been added to the list.  Everyone should check the list daily to make sure that they have the latest information and that no one is getting left out of the sharing and commenting.

THank you for your participation.

Remember to Like their fan pages from your personal page and/or add them as a friend.  Then share their products to your own fan page or personal page.

All comments on the shared items should be posted on the page of the original post and then shared to your own page.  Thanks a lot, this will give us double exposure without raising eyebrows at FB

I know this may be a double post for some of you, but I didn't want Pam, and those of that have been participating to miss this, and in hope that some of you have received a similar post!

The sharing on face book is working!  Posted on the fan page (The Alchemists Vessel) this morning, from an on-line company called Modalyst.

"We would love to learn more about how you discover these wonderfully unique, handmade treasures... we bring similarly beautiful discoveries to our platform for boutiques like you!"

TrickysBoutique has been added to the list.

I am not seeing the participation from such a long list.  What is everyone doing?  I know we are all busy, but come on, one share a day is not asking too much for your shop items to be promoted by so many.

Let's get the sales up around here for the holidays for everyone.  Promote Promote Promote.

I have lost track of the post that had the listings in it.  I share when I can, with the market coming up this weekend, I haven't had much time to do anything.  Sharing this morning though.  ^-^

I have shared Trickys Boutique's link to the web site. However I cannot link back to it, as clicking the share takes you to her page, and not the post.  (Bummer)!
Title: Re: Facebook Member Spotlight Fall 2012
Post by: beadthing on November 08, 2012, 04:38:41 PM
I see what you mean about linking back.  not a problem as long as we know who you posted for, we can always just go to your FB page and comment and share from there like that.

Thanks for posting.

Go to the main forum, down to Facebook Member Spotlight thread, click in, there is one archive folder I think and then two other threads the second one is the one with the list.

Thanks

I saw that Alix and I was about to do a thread or message to you to thank you.

This FB Highlight seems to have fallen apart. Non participation, unfortunately I have to accuse myself of that as well, I have been sooo slack and doing too many things at once.

I was just thinking about this today as a matter of fact, starting a new for the new year but a bit more open.

What do you think?

Any other takers out there.
Title: Re: Facebook Member Spotlight Fall 2012
Post by: TheAlchemistsVessel on January 16, 2013, 08:41:55 AM
I think we should start a new one.  I think too that we should not do a shop, but a SPECIFIC ITEM. Say we have participants, once a week we select an item to share from the shop, everybody shares that item.  Next week another shop another item.  Once a week.  Maybe with something to post, and not having to search for something to post, people will be more apt to join in since 1/2 of the work is done already. Perhaps maybe.
Title: Re: Facebook Member Spotlight Fall 2012
Post by: beadthing on January 16, 2013, 08:06:05 PM
That is not a bad idea Alix.  Let me throw it back at ya.  Instead of a specific item how about a category?  It still can be done without much of a search and allows for choices.

Just a thought
Title: Re: Facebook Member Spotlight Fall 2012
Post by: TheAlchemistsVessel on January 17, 2013, 10:07:06 AM
I like the category idea, but how do we get more than just Jewelry, a lot of that do the Social Rings make it.  Maybe it could be  something like

Jewelry - Necklace
Clothing - Scarf
Ceramics - Mosaics, Cups, sculpture

Kinda like that, is that what you mean?
Title: Re: Facebook Member Spotlight Fall 2012
Post by: TheAlchemistsVessel on January 17, 2013, 10:25:17 PM
Yeah, I like that.

Category - Jewelry
Shop - A Bead Thing
Item - Bracelet

This way people can still choose the item that speaks to them the most, but have an item to choose from as not to sit there and think, "Oh what do I share?" And all that are in the ring will be sure to have their item shared as well.

Easy-peasy.  Groovy.
Title: Re: Facebook Member Spotlight Fall 2012
Post by: beadthing on January 18, 2013, 12:25:28 AM
Exactly Alix, I hope to get it started by the morning.  Right now I am going to bed.  I know early for me, but I think if I can get more rest, then maybe everything could be a bit better with Jaeden.  A friend told me that she thinks he is pushing my buttons to see  if I will leave him.  Something apparently that 5 year old men do.  Who knew.  I would never have thought but I will be spending even more time with him than normal to try to make him feel more secure and get him involved with more children through some homeschooler groups I found around here.  Only thing is here they are very cliquey and I am just not like that.  Oh well.

Anyway, thanks for the idea and I will get it posted in the morning.

Love to you.

Little one's are funny.  Separation anxiety is a real issue among all kids.  Jaeden has had his little world turned upside down with changing to Homeschooling and the like, he is adjusting the best way he can.  Besides more time with the Grandchild is always a plus!
Title: Re: Facebook Member Spotlight Fall 2012
Post by: Uniqlets on January 18, 2013, 10:20:36 AM
I am up for a new FB spotlight.  I think the rings have a life cycle, although, last time, there did not seem to be much participation.  Alix, if categories help, sounds good to me.
Pam, good luck with Jaeden.
