Today I am reviewing a new software and training program called “Total Facebook Takeover” by Simon Harries, Manny Hanif and Declan MC. So what does this training and software product actually do for you? Can it help you grow your business?
First, let’s talk about the power of Facebook. It should be very clear that Facebook is extremely popular worldwide and therefore makes it a fantastic source of traffic for your business. You can get traffic from Facebook through two main ways: 1) paying for traffic using the Facebook Ads platform; or 2) getting free traffic through timeline posts or group posts.
Now, you can get very low cost clicks through Facebook ads if you know how to do it well. However, you can easily spend a lot of money testing your Facebook ads to find what works well and brings your cost per click (CPC) down to an acceptable level. If you have some money that you don’t mind spending, then paid Facebook Ads can be very worthwhile and profitable, BUT be prepared to lose some money before you start profiting.
Most people prefer free traffic, although you have to understand that it is only free as far as monetary cost goes. Most free traffic sources take more time to implement and take longer to see results.
This is where the beauty of Total Facebook Takeover comes in. Total FB Takeover is a web-based software that allows you to use Facebook groups as free traffic sources, which in itself is not a new concept, but the software allows you to save time which is what makes it valuable. After all, “time is money”, right?
I was able to get review access to the software and it allows you search for FB groups based on a niche keyword. Say your niche is “weight loss” so you then enter your niche in the search bar and the software will return all the relevant FB weight loss groups in order of the most active groups. Now you can join the groups of your choice from the software dashboard. This is much easier than having to join each group by hand and one-by-one.
The other powerful feature of the software is that you can then submit a post to multiple groups at one time. This is a HUGE time saver! I have done FB group marketing before but gave up quickly because I would have to copy and paste my post into each group individually which is very time intensive. So this feature alone is well worth the software.
The other cool thing you can do is go create your own FB groups and manage them from this software dashboard. Starting a FB group establishes you as an authority and allows you to have a “pinned post” which stays at the top of the group page so everyone sees it every time they go to the group, so it is free and continual advertising for you.
These guys also give you detailed “over the shoulder” video training on how to use the software, but also how to monetize FB groups through use of the software. After all, what good is having some cool software if you don’t know how to use it to make money with it? Well, the make money aspect is covered in the training.
So what’s the downside? Not much really. Facebook is fickle and could change their rules at any time which might negate this software, but I doubt they would do that as Facebook is all about social interaction so they would love to see more of that and this software is based on promoting social interaction.
The other word of warning is not to go crazy and start spamming your affiliate links all over Facebook or you risk getting your account shut down. Be smart and post with intention. Remember, you will ALWAYS make more sales if you offer value to people and not just try to make a quick dollar.
Like always, any software is only as good as the effort you put into it, and software should only be purchased if it is a tool that will make your work easier and more efficient, and this software does both of those things.
