~ Facebook Marketing Tips ~

Facebook has been very busy the past couple of months tweaking this and changing that. Part of their mini-overhaul has been enforcement of their prohibited content policy. If you have tried to place an ad or do a boost recently, you may have experienced issues getting the ad/boost approved through their filters (I know I initially did). Keep perservering as there is plenty to gain...in the way of new traffic, prospects, and increased brand exposure once you "break the code" for your particular ad/boost. 

Do you have a FB success story to tell? Perhaps something you have found out that is share worthy? Maybe there is something you are about to try that we can root you on for attempting? Let us know in the comments below!

PLEASE stop by the 5 Facebook Business Pages below, LIKE their page, and leave a comment, just like Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD do with Youtube Thursdays. It is always nice to reciprocate, so if you are visited, please take a moment and return the favor.

As always, enjoy the information Rainers!

Oh my goodness, I received a text message from one of my clients last week saying he was in FB jail! Evidently they didn't appreciate his conservative posts and they locked him out for 14 days!! I had no idea they would REALLY do that and if I didn't know him to be a very religious, honest man, I wouldn't have believed it either! LOL

Thanks for another wonderful week of FB information, Anita. Have a great week ahead...

Hi Anita,
FB seems to have several personalities... depending on the day.

Dorie: There is much to be gleaned from the comments. I enjoy them every week.

Krystin: Smart move. I bet you find something you can use.

Thank you Diana. Much appreciated.

Awesome news Jeremy. That is exactly how this is supposed to work.

Will: They post them for all to see but they do not do a good job of enforcing them.

Well said Carol. ;-)
