~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~

Spring always brings change and that should be no different for your Facebook presence. Here are a couple of quick things you can do to ensure your FB page looks fresh and is poised to generate more traffic and prospects.

  • Update your profile photo
  • Complete your "About" section
  • Always include a call to action
  • Pin important things to the top of the page
  • Fix what is broken
  • Keep it simple
  • Post and respond consistently

It really is that easy. Get these things right then you can move on to more advanced methods of getting your page to stand out and attract more potential clients.

I get asked quite a bit about how to do this or that and even the best/quickest way to set things up. I help where I can but am definitely not a FB expert (I just know what works for me). My best advice...just jump in and start "trying". You will not break the Internet and it is doubtful your first effort will be "perfect" so just jump in with both feet and start a page, try out a few ad/boosts, join/create a local group, post different content at different times, etc. If you cannot do it yourself, hire it out. Some of you have been "talking about it" for years. It is time to get off the sidelines and into the game! ;-)

Adnita:

Thanks for this focus on the basics that really should be correct on our FB pages. Time for me to take another look at all of them to see what needs to be changed. I should add this to my calendar as a regular check-up and edit so I won't forget.

Have a great weekend!

Good tips! I must admit I don’t do much with my business FB page. I am not convinced that FB is that effective for my business

I completely agree, Sally. Doing nothing is a marketer's nightmare.

Laura: It makes a world of difference.

Such a smart approach that should pay off well. Kudos to you Krista.

Carolyn: It does look like they have put in the effort to get noticed.

A periodic FB checkup is a good approach, Jeff.

Tom: A couple of well placed strategic ads might change your mind. For $20, they are well worth trying out.

Elaine: The trick is to make them part of our routine so we don't keep forgetting them. Sometimes that is easier said than done.

Just minor tweaks are all many FB marketers need, Dorie.
