You’ve probably heard people talk about Facebook marketing in the past. More and more people are using Facebook as a PR tool. However, all that chatter doesn’t mean much if you don’t know how to make Facebook work for you. In this article, you’ll find some excellent tips that will help you get all you can out of Facebook.
Set some goals for your Facebook marketing campaign. You can launch your campaign on a trial basis if you are not sure how your audience will react to it. Once you get a better idea of how interested your customers are, you should set some reasonable goals for your campaign.
All content on your site should be easy to Like and Share on Facebook. It should also appear in shortened form with a link on your Facebook wall. If people are able to share your content with their followers, you’ll find that your reach begins to expand exponentially, and so will your profits.
If you are using Facebook to market your business, make sure that you completely fill in the “about” section. This is a great way to communicate what your business is about. It is also an excellent area to put in contact information, locations, phone numbers and other helpful information about your business.
Create a contest on your Facebook page that only fans of your page can participate in. This will make them excited to come to your page. They may even tell family, friends, or co-workers, meaning you will have more visitors coming to your page. Of course, more visitors means more business!
Think of a good reason why people should become a fan of you or your company. When you can answer this “why”, you are prepared to deliver something to them that’ll get your fans to stick around and become engaged with the brand. Make it the center of your promotion.
Paying for fans
Never, ever, EVER pay for Facebook fans! Facebook can tell if your fans are engaged in your page or not, and the more fans you have who don’t check out your page, the worse your EdgeRank will be. You want fans who really are interested in your products, so let them come naturally.
Never rely on anyone else’s advice as to when the best time for updating your page is. While a non-profit may find people are more charitable on the weekend, that doesn’t mean your customers aren’t actually checking out your page at work. Do your own research to figure out when you should be posting.
Create customized tabs to highlight information on your Facebook page. This way you can clearly separate promotions, coupons, freebies and other things that you would like to highlight about your business without having them get lost in your wall posts. When the contest or promotion is over, you simply remove that tab from your Facebook page.
Remember to post on your Facebook page. When a business sets up a Facebook account, they will often release a flurry of posts, and then nothing for months. For this type of marketing to be successful, you need to post in a strategic manner. You do not need to post 15 times a day, but a few times a week is a great idea.
Ask your fans to get involved in various decisions related to your company or brand. Subscribers love to feel a connection to the brands that they follow. Empowering them to make decisions is a great way to involve your community. You may also want to ask what they want to know more about.
There’s a reason Facebook has become such a popular marketing tool. Every day, new people sign up for Facebook, and each one of them is another person you can reach out to. If you use Facebook to its fullest potential, you’ll be unstoppable. Thanks to this article, you know just what to do.
