Are you an online marketing maven? Can you use that expertise on Facebook? Maybe you’ve come from the print or broadcast advertising world and don’t know much about online marketing methods. No matter if you are new or are an old hand, the advice in this piece will surely prove useful.
If you are using Facebook for business, do it professionaly. Although social media tends to be a casual venue, your business must be presented professionally. Maintaining a professional tone will help build trust among your customer base.
Reply to everything written about your company, be it on your page’s wall or elsewhere on Facebook. You have to not only watch your page, but also messages which include your name with an @ symbol (like @Microsoft.) When it is someone complaining, you must reply immediately.
Incorporate professional and engaging posts on your Facebook page. While social media sites provide a relaxed atmosphere, your business still needs a professional appearance. People are going to trust your business when you remain professional.
Host a giveaway to generate attention. You should encourage your customers to join by offering a few free products to some of your subscribers. Make your winners viewable to maintain the legitimacy of your contest.
Have you looked into using custom tabs on your Facebook page? These tabs allow you to organize the information on your Facebook page for your visitors in a way that improves your business. For example, if a contest is going on you can have a tab there to get more information about it.
Always keep your current customers in mind. Some companies are focused on getting new fans and likes, but ignore the steadfast audience they already have. In order to market using Facebook, your audience should feel respected. Communication leads to a great relationship with your customers.
Consider using Facebook advertisements. Your products or service will only receive so much promotion from your normal postings. Purchasing Facebook ads will help you reach your goals. They are inexpensive and can pack quite a marketing punch.
Contests are a fun way to build an audience. Give something away for free to a select group of customers who sign up to be on your mailing list or who “like” your Facebook page. You do not need invest much money, but you can increase your base of potential customers.
