Message Happy Birthday
Most people post on their friend’s walls when it’s their birthday, right?
If you’ll message your Happy Birthday wishes instead of simply posting on their wall, if they reply it will increase the frequency of them then seeing your posts!
So tip #1 is to message, don’t just post on their wall.
Message Happy Birthday with Audio
To increase the percentage of replies you receive from the Happy Birthday wishes you message, use the audio clip when you message Happy Birthday.
At the time of this blog post, audio clips are limited to 1 minute… plenty of time to say, “Hey there Mary! I wish you a very Happy birthday. Hoping your day is extra special.”
I get around a 75% response to my voice clips vs. 50% to my typed messages.
Tip#2 is to use the Voice feature in messenger!
Message Singing Happy Birthday – Be Bold!
If you want to increase your response percentage to almost 100%…
***Sing Happy Birthday*** when you message your friends!
Tip #3, if you want to best results possible, is to be bold and use the voice feature in messenger to sing Happy Birthday to your friends!
In my experience, we tend to think we’ve done more than we’ve really done!
Numbers don’t lie.
Grab your “Birthday Messaging Chart” below.
Track the number of HB posts, HB messages sent, HB audios sent and the number of times you send a HB message actually singing Happy Birthday and… track the responses!
My challenge is for you to track your HB messages for 90 days, then you decide if it makes a difference.
And if you REALLY want to up your game, challenge your team to do this with you for 90 days!
Locating Friends’ Birthdays on Facebook
First, be sure you are logged into Facebook, then go to Facebook.com/events/birthdays.
Then you will see Today’s Birthdays, Recent Birthdays (in case you miss one) and Upcoming Birthdays!
I use this when I’m planning my week ahead… so I can note how much time I need to schedule in to send my Happy Birthday messages!

but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
