Tweaking Your Facebook Page For Better Results

Tweaking Your Facebook Page For Better Results

Exploring social media sites like Facebook is the best way to advertise your business to potential clients. It is very important to sign up on Facebook if you want to enjoy all the features it has. Explore and try out various features on your page to see what drives a good response and what doesn’t.

This is called “testing” your page, and is not all that different from testing to see if your pages or ads convert. If you have an online business, I’m sure you know about the benefits of setting up a Facebook account in a way that it will attract visitors. There are so many things you can do with social media sites to bring your business to potential clients.

You will need to make sure that your page is giving your audience the information they want. So how can you do this? Here are three easy ways to start:

1. Eye Catching Content

By setting up a fan page that mimics those proven to be successful, you have a better chance to gain a large audience quickly.  This doesn’t mean copying someone else’s page, but choose things that will give you better results. Find out what makes their page a success and build from there.

For instance, if you see other Facebook pages which are similar to your business and which have a good conversion rate, check what content could be attracting visitors to that page.

If they use some border techniques that attract visitors to their page or they have their page set-up in a particular pattern, then you could try to use something similar and see if that boosts your page and business.

2. You Only Need To Make Small Design

One of the most critical mistakes people make when testing a page ( such as a web page, Facebook page, or squeeze page) is to make a lot of changes altogether. The point here is this: when testing a page, just make a few small changes at a time.  If you make so many changes on your page all at once, you will not be able to ascertain which ones caused your conversion rate to increase or decrease.

The the best way is to make small adjustments to your page such as changing your headline, adding a nice border, tweaking your profile picture or changing your notification. Then, you will need to exercise patience. Wait and watch to see if there is a difference in your conversions rate. If you already get a lot of traffic to your pages, then you just need only a week or two to see if there is any difference. If your traffic is currently low, you should wait about a month.

3. Be Creative

A lot of people find themselves stuck when the idea of testing their Facebook pages comes up.

They are confused about how to test on their page. Even after making few changes, they may think more is needed. However, you’ll be surprised by how just few change on your page will generate comments from your visitors just changing your title, wording your call to action differently or the color combinations you use on your page can make a world of difference.

See beyond what is visible at first glance. Consider the subtle things first. Then, try to divide your page and break it down into as many little pieces as you can. Once you have your testing on that type of level, you will be setting yourself ahead of your competitors. You will know what converts and what doesn’t convert, all the way down to the smallest of details.

And after all your hard work, you should have an excellent Facebook page that will attract and get the visitors that you need for online success.

How to Nix Your Credit Card Debt in Less Than 3 Years

How to Nix Your Credit Card Debt in Less Than 3 Years

Debt is never a fun thing to be in. But, there are many actions that you can take that will help you rid yourself of the burden of debt once and for all.

By coming up with a set plan, eliminating your debt can feel much easier than constantly thinking about it.

This post will provide some tips on how you can do this to help you nix your credit card debt in less than 3 years.

Hint: there are ways that are easier than you think.

1. Consider Consolidating Multiple Credit Cards If Possible

This may not be applicable to you, but if you have multiple cards – it is something to consider. Keeping up with multiple bills is time consuming.

It will depend on the balance you have on each. Consolidate ones you can but do not do it to the point that you get too close to the maximum limit. Also, it is ideal to pick the card with the lower interest rate.

Consider if there are any fees or alternatively, rewards, with transferring a balance to another card. Watch out for fees. Note that some cards offer rewards for transferring a balance to them. This is extra cash that can help go towards paying off your debt.

Having one or two cards can make nixing your debt much simpler than keeping up with the balance of a bunch of cards. Keeping track of paying the minimum towards a bunch of cards is time consuming. Spend the time to consolidate instead to make the overall process simpler going forward.

My tip: Have one main credit card. Have a second one that you use for necessities – such as groceries or gas – that offers rewards for those purchases (a lot of cards do) and set the second one on auto-pay. You should be able to pay off a smaller amount on auto-pay if it is a necessity. If you think you cannot, then you may need to cut down a lot on expenses.

Why do I suggest doing this? Having one thing set to auto-pay is one less thing to think about. One less thing to waste time on. Same idea with consolidating to one main card. Tracking down too many is a hassle.

2. Try to Pay the Full Balance You Spent Each Month at the Very Least

You need to pay off the amount you are spending each month when that bill comes in. This is the amount you spent THAT month.

Do not let the debt keep accruing while you work on paying any unpaid debt that has accrued. It will become a never-ending battle. Try as best as you can to be current on paying for each month’s expenses when that month’s bill comes out.

If this is a strain, consider why. You may need to cut expenses. Or you may need to consider other cards. Or look at where this money is going.

3. Pay Extra When You Can – Every Small Amount Counts

This cannot be emphasized enough. If you are looking at a lot of credit card debt, it can look daunting, but each extra amount that you can put towards the debt will really add up – no matter how small it is.

It does not just reduce the principal amount that you have left to pay off, but it reduces the amount that is collecting interest. You will always save money with that reduced interest.

4. Create a Plan on How to Pay Extra

Back to the main point, having this plan is giving you one less thing to think about.

This plan should be a plan that works for you. If it does not work for you, your spending habits, and your views on debt, then it will not be an effective plan.

For instance, if a set plan of an extra $50 (or another amount that you know you can afford) works for you, then do that. Set that aside every month and pay that extra amount. Treat it like a bill. Choose an amount that works for you and pay it like clockwork as though it was a bill you had to pay each month.

Little amounts will not nix it entirely, but they will help tackle it and having a set plan can make it less of a chore. Creating a new plan of how much to put towards it each month is an unnecessary added stress.

5. Cut out Costs for Services You Do Not Use

If you are signed up for subscriptions that you do not use because of some free trial or for some other reason, cut it out. Your overall financial position will look better.

In turn, that will make cutting your credit card debt easier. Look at your statements to find these expenses. If you do not use them, you may forget you are paying some unnecessary amount each month. Cutting it out can really add up in savings that you can put towards other needed expenses.

6. Get Aggressive About It

Consider these points:

Depending on the interest and the level of debt, you may need to give up a few indulgences. For example, instead of ordering delivery or going out to eat, cook at home. Everything adds up.

Other things may be more of a sacrifice. It may be a trip you wanted to go on, or a daily latte habit you’ve picked up. In these instances, consider how important it is to you and if it’s worth the sacrifice. And if it is a costly expense, think whether you can wait to indulge.

Cutting an extravagant expense can really help make a dent in your overall debt. Try not to add to debt when you are trying to pay it off. It will be a never-ending battle. Make it less of a battle with these tips and it will feel easier.

Bottom line: Do what you can to make this process easier for you. Implement steps that do this. It takes time now, but will help overall. Also, keep track of your spending and paying down of your debts. Which is the next point.

7. Reevaluate Your Progress at Set Intervals

Doing a regular check-in can help you see your efforts pay off or maybe indicate that you need to give this a bit more effort. If you check every 3-6 months, it will not feel so much like a chore or feel so daunting.

By doing this, you will be able to better understand your progress and perhaps readjust your plan. Bonus: if you see it pay off, it will feel great to do this check-in. You will get there.

Finally (and most importantly)…

8. Keep Trying

Do not get discouraged. Pushing it off will make it worse. Just keep trying.

Once your debt becomes lower, each monthly payment will reduce the balance more. Why? You are paying less towards interest. It will be a snowball effect eventually and it will become much easier to manage. Just get to that point. And know once you do, it will feel easier and motivating.

Start Knocking out Your Debt Today

The best way to eliminate debt is to get started right away. Begin by implementing the above steps and watch your debt just melt away. Try out some of the above strategies and see what works best for you. Soon you’ll be on your way to a debt free life.
