If you’re not using Facebook to market your business, ask yourself why not. The problem is probably rooted in fear. Some business owners are unsure what to do online and are afraid of making a mistake. Come out of your comfort zone and begin marketing on Facebook with these helpful tips.
Change the tab order on your Facebook business page. The tabs will be in vertical order on the left of the page to start with. Under your list of tabs is the “Edit” option. Use this to customize the order of the tabs outside of the Info and Wall tabs. This can help you create a better hierarchy of which tabs should be near the top or the bottom in order to have some stand out more than others.
If you do not have time in the day to maintain a Facebook page, you should get someone else to do it. People will notice if your messages become to brief and start to lack substance. It is perfectly acceptable to have someone else run the page while you work on other aspects of the business.
Think of Facebook as a dialogue. A lot of people when they begin Facebook marketing, talk AT their audience. You need to talk WITH your audience. Feel like you are having a conversation with them, not like you are announcing things to them. Remember, Facebook is a social medium. You need to be social.
Create custom tabs on your business Facebook page. The tabs will let you present your information in an organized manner. For instance, if you have a contest going, a tab for that can be included.
Step one when it comes to creating a Facebook marketing campaign is to write down your goals. What exactly do you want to come out of all of your hard work? Do you want to increase profits? Do you want to retain loyal customers? Do you want to create relationships?
Now that you’ve got your Facebook marketing basics, doesn’t it seem silly to have been so worried about it? Facebook offers so much potential for business owners. So sign on with confidence and begin your Facebook marketing campaign today. When your business begins to take off, you’ll be glad you did!
