Are you thinking about creating a Facebook page for your small business? If so, then great! When you use Facebook for marketing you can bring in a great deal more customers. It is an excellent marketing tool and can help put your business on the map. We have collected a few tips to help with Facebook for your small business.
- Learn from Others
If you have a competitor who has been marketing on Facebook much longer than you have, you should look at what they have done so far that works.
- Watch Yourself
Facebook has a language all its own. While you don’t want to be incredibly formal when you engage customers on Facebook, being too casual can land you in hot water as well.
- Plan Ahead
There is a fantastic feature on Facebook that lets you upload a number of posts and release them at appointed times. Use this to keep your content flowing.
- It’s About Your Timeline
Your Facebook Timeline is your business’ main Facebook destination. Make sure that it looks interesting but don’t overload it to the point where it’s tacky and full of ads for your products/services. Think clean and concise.
- Don’t Be Shy
While it will be impossible to respond to every single comment that is made on your Facebook page, try to at least answer a number of them each day. Responding promptly to a question someone asks on your page is simply good customer service.
- Run a Contest
Getting your Facebook followers to engage with your brand is essential. Having a simple contest for your followers increases their engagement and can be a great way to thank them for following you.
- Promote Yourself
If you are a small business that plans to use Facebook for marketing purposes, get the word out with Facebook Ads. They are not expensive and can get your name out to a broader audience.
- Change Accordingly
Facebook is great because your customers will talk to you honestly about your business. Take these comments to heart and change your business strategy accordingly. They will appreciate it.
