How to Make a Facebook Business Page Video Banner

Posted on Updated on

This is the easiest site I’ve seen to make some cool video banners for Facebook Business pages.

I use Animoto for lots of things. But the Facebook Business page banner is one of my favorites.

I’m going to walk you through, step by step, on how to make your own Facebook Video banner.

So grab some popcorn and sit back…here’s your video!

How much does it cost?

It’s fairly inexpensive when you compare video design websites. So many of them are WAY more expensive (with even less options).

But I know what you’re saying…Melissa, that’s still $8 a month.

I’m gonna give you the same story I give all business owners.

Ask yourself a few questions:

Can you do it yourself?

Probably not. Now there’s some freakin’ rock stars out there using iMovie and apps and all kinds of jazz. But if you don’t want to spend a lot of time learning a new platform, you’re going to have to pay for convenience. And there’s no shame in that game people. You can’t be great at EVERYTHING. So you have to pay for what you’re not that great at. #GetOverIt

Will it make you money?

Now, if we’re talking about buying lives on Candy Crush…NO! But creating professional videos can:

  • make you look credible
  • make your customers stop scrolling and LOOK
  • give you an edge over other people in the same business

…then it WILL generate some income and interest

There’s a lot more Animoto can do for you:

  • Instagram videos
  • Product spotlights
  • “About Me” video instead of a photo…way cooler chica.
  • Videos for Facebook
  • Music library to add to your videos

So maybe try it for a month and see for yourself! Sometimes we simply need a little inspiration to jump start some excitement and ignite a fire in our business. If you need that, give it a try.

Download your Contacts Today

Posted on

When was the last time you backed up the most important asset you own in your business, your contacts?

So many consultants have a little too much faith in their umbrella company sometimes.

Today, I’d like to challenge you to take control of this one BIG DEAL.

Why do you want to download your contacts?

Because you’re smart. Let’s start there.

Because you worked hard for those contacts.

You never know what kind of glitch could wipe out even a portion of your contacts because of some IT department error. If you lose your contacts, it’s not their fault anymore, it’s yours. Cause you were told to back them up! There’s so much data in my company’s back office. If it crashed today, or if my company shut the doors today, this is ONE THING I know I will have. And I can prepare and rebuild instantly.

Can you?

Make a folder

Make a folder for each month. Mine this month is titled January 2019. Clever, I know…

But guess what? I put everything that pertains to January in that folder:

  • scripts
  • special
  • graphics
  • holiday stuff
  • team reports

Now when I go back, I can see every January. I’m not starting from scratch.

Well, an excel file of my current month’s contacts list is now part of that folder. I’ve been saving content for 6 years, but I’ve neglected the most important part of my business, my contacts. So I wanted to make sure you’re on the right track too.

3 Ways to use ISSUU for Digital Catalogs

Posted on Updated on

I’m going to show you how to use ISSUU to make some digital links worth sharing in 2019.

What is ISSUU?

It’s a website where you can upload any PDF and get a digital link for people to view an animated digital view of the catalog. Go ahead, check it out here. And I made a video to show you exactly how to do this. I also have a YouTube video to show you how to do that quickly!

Here’s 3 ways you can use ISSUU.COM in your business

Company Catalogs

  • If your company products PDFs of the season’s best products, this is where you want to begin. It’s a huge asset to your business. You can:
  • Use your own catalog in your email signature
  • Send in “thank you for your order” replies and order confirmations to customers
  • You can send as a 30 or 60 day follow up
  • You can quickly send to hosts and prospects no matter where you’re at
  • You can share your catalog on all your social media platforms as an engaging post

Recruiting Brochures

Being able to send out your recruiting brochure as a digital link? Oh my heavens. Imagine this…someone asks you for more information about joining your team.

You’re at the grocery store and you can simply copy a link and text it to them.

And BAM! You look like a boss. It’s the next level. You are showing your client or potential recruit that you are:

  • professional
  • prepared
  • and most importantly…easily duplicated.

In their head they’re thinking “Wow…I could totally do that”

Monthly Specials

So you’re having a monthly special and you get to post a boring graphic over and over to tell people, right? Or even more prehistoric…you can pass out flyers.

Or…you could share an issuu LINK and:

  • now they click your LINK to SHOP when you post it on Facebook
  • now they can click the link in your Instagram profile to see and then click link to shop
  • now you can send a link to your customer and prospects in text and messaging that actually links them to YOU

Which would you rather have?

You need to get people SELLING FOR YOU.

So here’s what we’re going to start pushing RIGHT NOW to get cell phone numbers and get LINKS set up for them to sell for you. They’ll be partying and they won’t even KNOW IT!

You would use a post similar to this:

There’s an OUTLET SALE coming!

👉👉I can set YOU a personal shopping link the minute the sale goes LIVE. It’ll be text right to your phone so you’re the first to shop!

🍒🍒You can also use that personal shopping link to share with your friends. If you and your friends happen to hit $200+ in orders…I’m gonna give you a $25 CREDIT!

☑️☑️If you’d like to give it a try, post “ME!” below and I’ll get your link the minute the sale is announced!

There’s lots of ways to gather those contacts
