By creating a Facebook page, it allows you to reach specific people that are more likely to become your customers. To build your audience you want to think about who your customers are, what age group are you’re reaching, what area, and how will your business help them?

  • Invite your business contacts. Send out an email inviting them to like your page and share your business.

Making your page/business come alive!

As you start to post updates, photos, and more, think about what your customers like and what is catching their attention. They more they interact with your page is a sign that they like what is being posted. Using page insights can be very helpful when seeing what is more worth while – ex. posting photos or posting useful links.

  • Be original: Be honest with your customers and post what you are genuinely excited about. This will get your customers excited too!

  • Successful posts: If you are finding that certain posts are more successful than others, use that as a tool to promote! Create more like that and replicate it to get more engagement.

Who Benefits most from Facebook marketing?

Opposed to what many may think, Facebook marketing is a very effective strategy for building your business, especially for small company’s.

  • Facebook helps to represent the company in a more specific way.

  • Small business offer unique services and Facebook can help reach certain communities of people that will benefit from your business.

  • Facebook allows small businesses to compete with larger companies in a way that is more efficient for their company. Often times, big businesses don’t have the time to get down to the nitty gritty details that small business can provide.

By using Facebook, you will reach a whole other community of people. Your page isn’t just about how many likes your business gets or building “fans”. That of course, will help your company, and share your information through different people, but Facebook will give your business the opportunity to grow sales and accumulate business in a whole different way. Online marketing continues to grow and expand, and by adding your business to that market, it will grow and expand your product as well.
