Facebook Business

Should Your Business Have a Facebook Page?

Let’s face it – social media can be overwhelming!

I mean, give me a break! How on earth is a local business supposed to learn how to Facebook, Twitter, LinkdedIn or Google Plus?

There are some simple and basic strategies you can use to limit your time and maximize the leverage these social media sites offer.

Today I want to cover the reasons why you should setup a Facebook page for your business.

Here are 5 reasons why I recommend you should have a Fan Page for your business on Facebook:

 

  1. Branding
  2. SEO
  3. Free
  4. Fans
  5. News

 

1. Branding

Whether you are a celebrity or a small business owner, Facebook Fan Pages are a great FREE way to brand yourself.

You can promote your USP – Unique Selling Proposition. Why should buyer come to you first?
You can promote your latest album – a Fan Page on your new album release draws in targeted buyers
You can promote you new movie release
You can promote your passion

Get the picture? You can promote anything you want to get an audience for.

2. SEO
I have been teaching SEO for a couple of years. It is a great way to get found in the search engines.

Facebook is the largest social network on the Internet and is indexed regularly by the search engines. Your fan pages include links which point back to your website. If you do this well, you can have several links back to your business.

3. Free
Facebook is free to join and you can set up pages for free! (Yes, you can pay to have someone give your fan pages a professional face lift but it isn’t critical when you start out. If Facebook becomes a good source of traffic for your business then I would make the investment.)

4. Fans
Facebook allows you generate a list of ‘fans.’ These are people/businesses/organizations that like what you are doing or offering.

Better yet, you can send “updates” to your fan list anytime you want.

Have a new product or service? Send an update to your fans.

Want help on some of the features of your new service? Ask your fans.

Want to give a deal to your fans? Send a coupon.

5. News
Not only can you send updates, you also have the ‘news’ feature. Whenever someone joins your fan page, it it published in their News feed for all their friends to see.

This is an excellent way to attract targeted visitors and build credibility.
