There are nearly unlimited points of view about how to most effectively use Facebook for marketing. Trends may temp to, but they aren’t what is needed to effectively market your business. The article below has the information you need to successfully market with Facebook.
Reply to everything written about your company, be it on your page’s wall or elsewhere on Facebook. This should include monitoring the wall comments as well as @ messages concerning your company. Pay special attention to posts that express a complaint or a request for customer service.
Any content published online should be linked to your Facebook page. If you have a blog on your site, have a summary and link post automatically on your Facebook. It’s also possible to link Twitter to Facebook so that all your tweets display there too.
Using “custom audiences”, you can upload the email addresses of your current customers and then target your ads towards them only. This boosts your conversion rates and keeps down your campaign costs as many people advertise to change their leads into full sales on the site.
Know when you should and shouldn’t post on other walls. You can receive a great deal of attention when you post on other Facebook pages. You want this to be positive attention. Only make posts on other pages if you have something worth saying. Don’t spam others.
Choose updates carefully. People will lose interest right away if you are not posting any valuable content. They want to read something interesting or that entertains them. Facebook Insights is something you can use to learn what kind of updates do the best with people so you can try to make more content like that.
A great way to boost conversion of visitors to followers is by hiding content from those who are not yet fans. If there are parts of your page that are hidden, you are more likely to entice someone to subscribe to your page. One caveat, you lose SEO when content is hidden; therefore, limit the amount of content that is hidden.
When all is said and one, people generally just follow trends that don’t work on Facebook because they are lazy and don’t know any better. It is fortunate that this article is about solid marketing advice rather than trends. When you use this advice, you’ll find your campaign will be successful and profits will rise.
