Internet marketing using the social medias, like FaceBook, for me, has been like learning Latin or Japanese!
So when someone needs help with FaceBook, I can smile because I can help them or have good resources to send them to.
I was introduced to a new business owner in my business group just recently. To get her business started, she was interested in promoting her new business on FaceBook. I wanted to tell her about a few things I have learned about FaceBook that would help her with promoting her business on FaceBook.
1. FaceBook is a “social” media. You create relationships here. So “like” and “comment” about what your friends are doing. Do this everyday. You will be seen by FaceBook as an active member. After you have gone back and forth with your conversation, you may see that your business/product/service can help your friend. Now take your conversation offline. Private message them about what you can help them with. If they want to know more, time to set up an appointment.
2. If you promote your business on your FaceBook personal page, FaceBook will shut you right down. You need to start a FaceBook Fan Page for your business. Click here to start a Fan Page
https://www.facebook.com/pages/create.php and follow directions.
Here’s a tip – Continue to show who you are with your posts on your business page. Be real. You will connect with your audience and look to you as an expert and a real person. It helps to share pictures, videos, quotes and sayings. You can place ads for your business here. That’s a whole other blogpost!
3. FaceBook sends your posts to up to 6% of the people that are your friends. So you have 100 friends, 6 friends see your post. 1000 friends, 60 friends see your post. The more you “like” and “comment” and “share”, the more people you will be connected with from FaceBook.
FaceBook controls the rules and FaceBook can change the rules at any time.
