Most people in America have a Facebook page. Although most use it for personal reasons, business owners are finding it helpful as well. Facebook does have some marketing options that require payment, but some of the most successful businesses can implement free ideas as well. Whether you use the free options or the paid options, the following advice will help.
Don’t let spam overrun your page on Facebook. When editing your page, look at filter options so spam can be looked into, even if you are not on all the time. Any administrator of your page can enter keywords into this tool which will then automatically be filtered out.
Use custom tabs to make your page stand out. The tabs help you organize all of your information on your business Facebook page, which helps your visitors when on your page. For instance, use a custom tab for any contests you might run.
If you want to only target current customers, use “custom audiences”. This method will lower your campaign cost and increase your page’s conversion rate due to the fact that more leads will turn to actual sales.
Make sure that you focus on quality when updating your page. If your updates have no value, your subscribers will lose interest fast. They should offer help or be educational or entertaining. Utilize Facebook Insights to learn which updates have the best success so you will be able to give your audience something similar.
Ensure there are easy to find areas in your Facebook page so followers can sign up. If you provide an incentive for registering, you are likely to gain more interested followers. Try having a contest from time to time or give them a way to get signed up for special offers from you.
Only invest real resources in this form of marketing. Facebook is important and marketing on it will take real effort. If you try to get someone to work on your page that already has a lot to do then you’re not going to get very far because they have to stay on top of things at all times. Instead, find someone who has the time and resources need to effectively run your Facebook page.
Make sure your followers can easily share your content on Facebook. If you’re offering people information that they find valuable then you may have people that are ready to share that information with others. Sharing is what makes Facebook tick. When working to provide valuable resources to the audience, they return the favor by informing their networks of the content and possibly earn you more prospective clients.
