How much do you know about online marketing? Does your experience include Facebook? Do you mostly market the traditional way, but need to update your strategy? No matter if you are new or an expert, these tips can help anyone.
Link all of your content to your Facebook page. If you’re running a blog, for instance, it’s easy to set it so that links and summaries of your latest posts are automatically cross-posted to Facebook. Your Twitter page and other pages can be linked straight to your Facebook account.
Consider buying a few Facebook ads. Regular posting, while valuable and beneficial, only goes so far. If you want to increase the number of people who see your product or service, purchasing Facebook ads is the way to go. They are not expensive, and can make a substantial difference.
Never let spam overrun your page. You can monitor your page with certain tools, even when you are not online. Your administrators can update the filters as new spam is added to your page.
Consider creating a group instead of a page. A group creates a community of users all interested in a common topic. Both pages and groups will allow your followers to see what you are doing and then they can respond in kind.
The first step to success with Facebook marketing is having a solid base of fans. Wait until you have a decent number of fans before you invest a lot of money in marketing. Large numbers of fans will cause the rate of conversation to skyrocket.
Offer an exclusive coupon, sample or great deal for those who “like” your page. Likes are a good way to raise the profile of your page. Make it worthwhile to like your page. You can also enter them into a contest if they like your page. They will click very fast if there is something free in return.
A company that only interacts with a client infrequently, like a car dealership or a Realtor, does not require a business page on Facebook. Customers tend not to follow such pages unless they actually need the item. Invest in ads targeted for Facebook instead.
Your goal for Facebook marketing is to increase the sale of your products. It is important to set some sort of periodic goal based on your Facebook marketing efforts. While “likes” have their place, they don’t necessarily mean that anyone is buying from you. When you’re not getting results, change your strategy.
The most important part of posting on Facebook is establishing long-term ties with other users. Facebook relationships evolve over time and need a long-term investment of time to build, in the same way face-to-face relationships are built. Providing valuable, up to date content is on way to keep your customer relationships going well. Don’t forget to reward your loyal customers through promotions and deals.
