As a digital marketing agency, learning how to get clients on Facebook shouldn’t be a big “a-ha” moment.
After all, you of all companies should have an arsenal of creative ways to do lead generation.
Knowing how to get clients for digital marketing should be a given.
But the thing is, what we do best for clients doesn’t always work for ourselves. This can make agencies question their own potential — stirring self-doubt and making it even harder to win new business.
This stops today.
First, let’s bring inspiration back in the mix.
For a fresh supply of ideas, here are some of the best Facebook posts ever by known brands.
This first post may not be the most popular, but it’s definitely the most helpful for digital agencies.
SEMrush — a popular SEO platform — posted a flowchart that helps users decide if they need a digital marketing agency.
Social media users love single posts with an element of interactivity. That includes trivia questions, contests, and polls.
A flowchart like the one above provides an engaging way for your audience to realize that they need your services. Just be sure that, no matter their choices, you’ll still mention how they can benefit from your agency.

Way back in 2013, HubSpot asked their audience a similar question. The post, of course, garnered a lot of interesting answers from the Facebook community.
Your agency can borrow this idea by sharing posts that invite participation. To make things interesting, ask questions that resonate with your audience’s emotional drivers.
There’s nothing like social media posts that put emphasis on the word “social.”
In 2015, Content Marketing Institute ran the #MeetTheTeam campaign on Facebook. During which, they uploaded posts that introduced key team members.
If you’re a business looking for an agency, you’d want to know more about the people running the show.
Posting about your team and company culture is a great way to lure in prospective clients. That’s how to get corporate clients who can be extra meticulous when it comes to hiring agencies.

Next, hook up your business page on your Vista Socal account. From your dashboard, simply click ‘Quick Add’ and select ‘Add Social Profile’ to get started.
Select your entity from the drop-down menu and choose ‘Facebook Page.’
Facebook will guide you through the rest of the connection process. When done, you’ll be taken back to your Vista Social dashboard.
With your business page all done, it’s time to build your agency’s visibility.

Once you’re on your prospective client’s radar, there’s a good chance they’ll look for reviews before hiring your agency.
You can use Vista Social to turn reviews into powerful weapons for lead generation.
With your accounts connected, all reviews posted on your Facebook business page are automatically collected by the platform.
To check reviews for your business page, expand the side menu and tick its checkbox.
Your reviews should now be visible under three categories: “All Reviews,” “Not Responded,” and “Responded.”
Feel free to copy or take screenshots of these reviews and feature them on your website.
Make sure prospective clients don’t have to look far to see them.
Below are a few tips that will help you make the most out of reviews:
Just bear in mind that review management isn’t available for networks that don’t support customer reviews, like Instagram.
