Facilitation Tips

  1. Introduce the concept of building relationships with your audience via Facebook Pages, including posts, comments, and direct messages (when appropriate).
  2. Learners should aim for 15-25 likes for their posts to start.
  3. Relevance is the key factor in creating engaging content and posts for your community. Consider, who are you trying to reach and what information is most important and relevant to them?
  4. Consider facilitating small or whole group discussions to support learners in measuring the impact of their posts. Look at multiple examples then analyze what is working and what isn’t in terms of marketing efforts.
  5. Get learners to understand that they can’t just sit and watch activity on their page. Rather, they have to “talk” with their followers via posts, comments, and messenger. Consider how different marketing strategies elicit different responses.
