If you’re not using Facebook to market your business, ask yourself why not. The problem is probably rooted in fear. Some business owners are unsure what to do online and are afraid of making a mistake. Come out of your comfort zone and begin marketing on Facebook with these helpful tips.
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.
Make custom tabs on your Facebook page. You will automatically have a few tabs set up for you when you first create your page, but it is possible to get creative and add in a few of your own. For instance, think about including a tab that has links to information that you find valuable.
Consider carefully before you promote your business on someone else’s page. If you post on someone else’s page, it can lead to attention. However, it needs to be the type of attention you need. If you do post, only post worthwhile things. Spamming other peoples sites can have negative consequences on your own site over time.
Consider investing in Facebook Ads. You can pay a fee to have a certain number of targeted Facebook users see your ad. This is an excellent way to get more subscribers for your page. You will get better results if you offer a discount to the new subscribers or organize a giveaway.
Keep your posts relevant. If you make kitchen appliances, everything you post about should have something to do with the kitchen. If you post too much about irrelevant things, the theme of your page will get lost and your bottom line could be affected as a result. It is important to stay on topic.
Consider using Facebook advertising. By paying for Facebook ads, you can reach a larger audience by targeting specific demographics. This can get your Facebook page a lot of attention, and that’s important. Try it out for a while and then cancel it if it does not seem to be working.
Do not build any apps on Facebook that require more than three or fours steps to get started. The more complicated something is, the less likely people are to want to deal with it. If someone can use one of your apps right away, they will be more likely to sign up.
Now that you’ve got your Facebook marketing basics, doesn’t it seem silly to have been so worried about it? Facebook offers so much potential for business owners. So sign on with confidence and begin your Facebook marketing campaign today. When your business begins to take off, you’ll be glad you did!
