You want to engage your Facebook audience, and for sleep companies that might require a little creativity. These ideas will help:
Ask Followers to Choose — Start a conversation by posing two choices; maybe a nasal mask vs a full-face mask. Ask why they prefer that option. It’s a good opportunity to educate patients on advantages and disadvantages of products for certain patients.
Offer a Sleep Product Demo — If your followers aren’t familiar with your products/services, you can walk them through some options. Provide a brief overview or introduction of the item. If you’ve got a broad product line, take a simpler approach. Don’t try to provide all the details in one Facebook post. Instead, focus on one category in each Facebook post.
Share a Customer Testimonial — In some cases, it’s a good idea to let your sleep customers do the talking, since their words will be more trustworthy than your content. This will encourage customers/patients to take the next step, and make the purchase.
List Sleep Product Pros and Cons — When introducing new products, or increasing awareness of existing products, your followers can benefit from a list of pros and cons. This type of post helps position your products and encourages followers to identify the best option for them — especially helpful if they are indecisive about a purchase.
- Pros and cons can include:
- Unique benefits
- Potential uses
Share a Time-Sensitive Sleep Offer: If you have a great offer to share, you need a strong CTA. When you post an offer, discount, or limited-time special on Facebook, be sure to tell your audience exactly how they can get it.
Provide a Quick Win — Sometimes people need help figuring out how a product/service fits into their lives. Offering quick tips or a super-simple guide to getting started can help. A quick video can explain the benefits of at-home sleep testing, and how it works.
Feature a Sleep Team Member — Give people a behind-the-scenes glimpse by featuring a team member. People like to see the humans who run the sleep company, and it helps them form more personal connections with your brand.
Answer a Sleep FAQ — Like most companies, you likely get a lot of repeat questions. You can feature one or two of these FAQs in a Facebook post. This is an easy way to provide value, as you’re answering questions they’ve wondered about — and helping them make a purchasing decision about sleep products. FAQs present a great opportunity to highlight your products/services’ uniqueness.
Support National Sleep Celebrations: Look for “awareness weeks” related to sleep, and be their champion in Facebook posts. In the UK, there’s National Stop Snoring Week; in the US, there’s National Sleep Awareness Week — as well as World Sleep Day. Create memes to honor these weeks.
You can recycle these ideas every month, incorporating new trends, causes, and offers — creating Facebook content efficiently for months to come.
