Facebook is easily the top social media site online. So many people are using it. Everyone from teenagers to baby boomers and beyond. You can target a specific market and really get a bigger following and an awesome response!
Here are 5 Amazing Tips to getting more out of Facebook for business!
You look at your Facebook business page and say to yourself "how come I only have so few followers?". You haven't invited enough followers! Really simple... INVITE, INVITE, INVITE! Invite all of your Facebook friends from your personal page and have your close friends, co workers, employees, company partners invite their friends to like your page! This increases your reach and allows more people to see your posts, share them, like them and become familiar with your company. If your pretty good pals with other companies that serve the same clientele you can go about asking them to return the favor and invite people to your page and do the same for them. This shares clients interested in your brand and builds up both companies. So always remember INVITE!!!
You may be a business that works in close contact with other businesses. Well if so have your business pages like eachother! TAGGING allows both businesses to tag eachother and piggyback when you have a BIG SALE or a SPECIAL EVENT! This shows that you two have a good relationship and that people who shop at one place should also try the other. Now... (Disclaimer) I wouldn't recommend doing this if you sell the same types of products (Unless your friendly)You are competitors so being if people begin to like one product more than the other you could have put yourself in hot water with that post. If not! Then you have the opportunity to really shine and share business! TAG by liking eachothers pages and simply typing the other companies name while writing a post. Usually this will pop up and you can click the company to tag them. TAG AWAY!
3. Have great pictures!
When you promote your business have great pictures and don't be shy about sharing them. After all it is SOCIAL MEDIA. Sharing pictures gives interest to your page. People are more likely to click, like or share a picture. Doing this links them back to your businesses Facebook page and with the right picture gives you the potential to go VIRAL! Keep taking pictures you have a smart phone right? In fact you might be reading this on your smart phone now! Use your phone it's a window to the world and can be a big help for your business. Another great thing to do is to hire a Professional Photographer or a Graphic Designer. They can provide you with great images that can captivate your audience and build up your social media presence.
4. Post a lot! (but not the same thing)
Yup! Really simple advice. POST A LOT! You read right. Post a lot but don't post the same thing. If you post the same thing all of the time, you will begin to bore your audience. Be sure that what you post looks good! Don't just post text. Posting text doesn't get any attention. Post images that's the way to get a reaction from your audience. Think about who your audience is and what they like about you and your company. This way you can post the right things they will like and share. Give them something to talk about!
5. Use Pages for FACEBOOK.
The application Pages for your mobile device is a great way to manage and update posts everyday no matter where you are. This app allows you to post photos, updates, links, tags and more. This is downloadable via the App Store through your device. (The icon is pictured at the beginning of the blog ) This allows you to see the messages to your business from clients so you can be in touch with them on a regular basis giving you a feel for the climate for your business.
