Welcome to the wonderful world of Facebook marketing. It is truly unlike any other form of campaign, especially those we’re used to. That means everything you’ve learned about marketing may not apply to such a campaign, so read on to see which traditional tips are no longer in play, and which new tips you should keep in mind.
Use Facebook Insights to improve your social media marketing campaign. Check Facebook Insights to find out which updates are the most popular. If possible, share more similar updates. If you notice your subscribers are losing interest in your Facebook campaign, make an effort to create more interesting content for your campaign.
You can build value for your Facebook campaign by using this platform to share exclusive content. Give some specific examples of the kind of exclusive content your subscribers have access to. You could for instance use Facebook to share some coupon codes or let your subscribers know about the new products you have not released yet.
Create a Facebook ad. Your products or service will only receive so much promotion from your normal postings. To extend your reach, use ads to reach outside your normal followers. They don’t cost a lot of money and they can make quite the difference.
By using the Power Editor, you can get your marketing post into mobile user’s news feed, the best way to reach those who aren’t using a traditional computer to access Facebook. In fact, there are also “Desktop News Feeds” which go to those on computers as well, so you can target both.
If you have a follower complaining on your Facebook page, try your best to resolve the issue publicly. This will let others know that you are a reputable business and will handle all of your obligations. If you cannot resolve a dispute with a customer publicly, try handling it in private.
If you want to use Promoted Posts, do so only with your current fan base. When a non-fan sees “Promoted”, they think it’s a “Sponsored Ad” and tend not to click on it. Your current fans won’t think that way as they already know who you are and what you do, and obviously like it.
Don’t think of your fans as numbers. That’s a big no-no in Facebook marketing. You aren’t collecting numbers, you are building brand champions. You are creating a community of people who love your company or brand. Treat them with the respect that they are due. These people can make a difference for your company.
While there are many traditional marketing tips which do apply to marketing online, including on Facebook, there are a variety of new strategies which you must put to use to find the greatest success. Nothing is guaranteed, though. One thing that can be promised is that using the advice in this article will be a huge help.
