Are You Using Facebook to Your Advantage

Filed Under Social Marketing

If you plan to use Facebook to grow your business, it’s important you use it the correct way. Facebook is a great way to communicate with your family and friends, but it’s also a good way to grow your business and reach success with the people you’re friends with.

One of the best ways to grow your business on Facebook is to use a fan page. You’ll be able to share any and all information with the people that like your page. You’ll be able to stay in contact with them on a regular basis and you won’t have to worry about your posts falling off your page before they read it.

Just because you use a fan page for your business doesn’t mean you shouldn’t use your profile page as well. It’s a good idea to continually remind people about your fan page and what you have going on. You should do your best to keep at least one fan page post on your profile page so you’ll need to keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn’t get too low.

One way to distract people and have them not see your business posts on your profile page is to allow the gaming posts to come through. These types of posts include Farmtown, Treasure Isle, and Petville just to name a few. They can be distracting and if someone plays a lot in one day you can have tons of those within a short amount of time. You can go in and delete those as they come in or you can block them from coming through all together.

Facebook is a good way to grow your business when you use both your fan page and your profile page. Use them wisely and make sure people see what you have to say and remove all gaming posts. When you use Facebook to your advantage you’ll see the growth you set out to achieve.
