Using Facebook for Your Business

Social mediaAnybody who has a business and is using Facebook for your business is bombarded on how to use Facebook.  There are a 1001 Facebook guru’s out there who can explain how you can use Facebook to promote your business.  Don’t get me wrong there is some really good cool stuff  done by very successful people.  As a small business owner you are not a Facebook guru and you probably don’t have the time to sit and do the work required, let alone sit through all the training.

Facebook Basics

On Facebook you have your Facebook Home Page and you have “fan” pages that can be created around anything you  pretty much want. For the small business owner you need to create a “Fan” page so they can use it to promote your business.  After all you don’t want all your Facebook Friends who are normally your friends and family getting bombarded with stuff about your business. You don’t want to be known as the family spammer.

So the easiest thing to do is create your business page and make sure the picture is relevant and is going to help people identify with you and your business.  When you post to your business page don’t post one line status updates, post Facebook Photos and useful content that would help people.

Link Your Website and Facebook Business Page

Find us on FB If you have a Website make sure people can find your Facebook page from your website.  Facebook provides buttons that you easily put on your website and will allow people to easily LIKE your page.

Facebook Pay Per Click

Pay per click on Facebook can be very successful if used write but before you go pushing that button saying get more fans or boost my page find out a little more about it.  Like all advertising you can spend lots of money and not get the results you are looking for.
