Just liked your page. Good luck
I love one of those invites if still available. If not, any ideas how to get one?
Hi Beth I have just liked your facebook page. Would you do the same for me.
I would be happy to, but I can't find your Facebook page for your properties.
Do you mind doing a search for Hampton house properties. You will se a pool in the thumbnail photo.
Also the site with a osprey nest is mine as well as 9bedroom Facebook page. I am new to advertising on Facebook so so not sure how to get link directly to my page. Thank you
Found it - must have typed it in wrong or something the first time because it popped right up. I liked both pages!
Not quite sure what I should post on my facebook page yet.
Can everyone please "like" my facebook page? It's www.facebook.com/Stayloutraki
Thanks again! I will gladly return all likes!!!
We have a lot of guests who return to our cottages year after year. Many of the Fans of our Facebook page come from these ranks, because they love the place so much and they want to stay connected with it. Some of our Fans became Fans shortly after making an inquiry or booking (we have our web address and "find us on Facebook, too" in our e-mail signature). We also ran a Facebook Ad last fall, and got quite a few Fans from among those who clicked on our Ad, although I can't say whether any of them will ever take the next step and inquire about a booking.
We use our page to post photos of progress on projects, off-season scenery, reminders of what it is like in-season, historical photos, and news and events from the area, mainly for the benefit of our returning guests. I try to post something at least once a week if not more often. We do get some feedback -- likes or comments on posts or photos -- so I think it does help keep us forefront in the minds of those who have "liked" the page.
Periodically, I will also switch to use FB as the page instead of as myself, and post a comment or photo on other pages, such as our local Chamber of Commerce or the State Tourism Association pages, which have many more likes. While such posts generally don't get pushed into the news feeds of the other people who like those pages, people do see them, so it is "free" advertising, and does help create exposure.
But ultimately, I don't think Facebook is a venue for being found by new guests (unless you do an Ad campaign), rather it is about staying connected with people who most likely found your business by some other means.

Couldn't agree more - for me our facebook is a tool to give more information...
I've "liked" everyone who has posted on here - would appreciate it if you could like my FB page: https://www.facebook.com/TyHirFinistere
Remember that you have to do you likes from your personal FB page for it to count - business page likes won't increment the number of likes :-)
I write a blog about things to do on Maui. I post blog updates on the facebook page, along with pictures (for example, the other day I posted a picture of two people driving a motorized scooter in their swim suits balancing boogie boards on their way to the beach). Airfare specials, specials I'm running on the condo etc... I agree, it's more about staying connected with guests than getting new guests, though every now and then someone does find us. Not sure if a paid campaign would be worth my while.
