About your Facebook Business Page
There are numerous ways to build your Facebook business to increase your presence in the online world, but there are three steps to success that you can follow to make it an easy process. Many people have a personal page in Facebook as well as a business page.
If you wish to post just to your friends and family you can use your personal page. If you wish to post to potential new clients or current clients, you can use your business page.
The unique thing about Facebook is that the business page postings will roll over to the general news feed and also be seen by your friends. There is no need to post them twice.
Below are some suggestions for making your Facebook Business Page the very best it can be.
Pick Great Topics
When you consider all the subjects on Facebook these days you realize there is a huge assortment of topics.
First of all if you have a business fan page you want your visitors to not only “like” your page but to return again and again for useful information.
You want your posts to inform and intrigue your customers, but you also want your posts to give them enjoyment.
No one wants to “sold” every time they go into your Facebook page.
Organize your posts to be diversified – Relate to your Fans
If you post strictly business related posts your fans might soon become overcome with “business phobia” and look to other pages for fun and enlightenment. You need to organize your posts in such a way that people will see them as interesting and informative but also meaningful to their everyday lives.
A beautiful poem, a wise old saying, a quiz or even a survey are great ways to captivate your audience and keep them checking back on your page every day.
Find out what interests your customers and what doesn’t. This can be done by running statistics on your posts through your advertising set up.
You’ll be easily see which posts generate activity and likes and which are absolute duds. When you capture the interest of your fans be sure you continue to post like items and you’ll have customers for life.
Consider Paid Advertising as a creative mechanism
There are many ways to advertise on Facebook. You can advertise your page, ask for likes or sign ups, boost your posts or set up an ad campaign.
Setting up a strategic ad campaign is the most cost effective way to increase your Facebook traffic and your customer base.
- You can budget how much you wish to spend
- Find your ideal audience
