You’ve probably heard along the way that Facebook is an excellent place to market your brand, product, or service. If you don’t know how to do this, don’t worry. This article outlines all you should know to present a successful campaign on Facebook.
The greatest way to interact with your fans is to talk back to them when they post about your company or on your wall. This, at a minimum, means you need to have someone read wall postings each day and check for “@” postings from other users. Reply right away, particularly if the posting included a complaint or customer service request.
You may want to buy an advertisement on Facebook. You are able to customize your ad so that it reaches your target audience. If you have a budget, do as much as you want. And best of all, you are not committed long term. You have the ability to stop the ad at your convenience.
If someone posts on your wall, answer them. If someone makes the effort to leave a message, you should also take time to communicate with them. Facebook is similar to a phone call, you would respond to that, right?
When you use Facebook as a marketing tool, you might get off to a bumpy start. A good start is to add a Facebook button to your site. That lets people know you’re now active on Facebook. Once they press the “like” button on Facebook for your business, the updates you provide will be seen by them.
Look for ways to establish yourself as a leader in your field. You can do much on Facebook to become a leader in a niche. Use every chance you have to provide answers to questions and comment on your topic. This will expose your brand to a lot of new people.
Try to post photos to your Facebook page that are professional. These photos will give people a great picture of your business. If you take the photos yourself, make sure you use a high-end DSLR camera and avoid posting images that could be negatively associated with your brand.
Keep your profile updated. Should your business change, update your information on your Facebook page. Having an updated page is helpful to customers interested in all you offer. You might want to change your page just so customers have something new and fresh to look at and to see all the things you have happening.
Get your followers to share your brand’s content with friends. Give your customers some sort of incentive, like offering a discount or giveaway to the person who shares your updates the most. This will provide them incentive to do something that helps your company.
Hold contests to keep your page exciting and fun. For instance, have your followers post photographs of themselves with your product. When the contest is over, choose a winner.
Take advantage of Facebook’s check-in feature if your business has a storefront. Allow users to update their status when they check in at your place of business. Their friends will note the regularly visits to this business and may be intrigued to find out more about you.
Hire someone to manage your Facebook page if you are unable. A successful page requires constant attention, and you may not be in a position to provide it. Once a day is a minimum, but can be hard to maintain. You will have to pay more to hire someone to manage your page, but doing so is often worthwhile.
Stay positive in all posts that you write on your wall. Visitors will quickly lose interest in your site if it looks like your content is computer-generated.
Promote sales on Facebook while you build your list of friends and followers. Coupons or special offers and promotions can be used to gain new friends and also to reward long-term customers. If you don’t offer older friends any incentives, they’ll be less interested in your business and may un-friend you.
