Joshua Van Dyk Useful Facebook Marketing Tips for Your Business Joshua Van Dyk Specialized tips provider Facebook marketing is one of the best ways to appeal to a wide variety of clients particularly if you are a small business that can take the time to reply to specific comments. With the popularity and familiarity most Americans have with Facebook its an excellent marketing avenue. Read on for more tips. The key to all marketing is to understand why youre doing it. What is your end goal Once you have that figured out you can more easily create a plan to bring in exactly who you want to turn from Facebook like into customer. So start brainstorming today - what are you marketing Ask your viewers on a regular basis what they are looking for from you. Take everything that is posted into consideration. You can gain valuable ideas from these posts. Your fans are the reason you are successful. Joshua Van Dyk Specialized tips provider If youre having trouble gaining followers you can offer a sweepstakes in return for their "Like". Just place the sweepstakes in a tab on your companys page and have them fill it out with their email address specifying that only those who Like your page will be eligible for the contest. When thinking of information to share with your followers on Facebook try to keep them relevant to what is going on with your business or industry. If your company sells auto parts you should make posts about auto parts. Posting photos of cats or other irrellavant topics will ensure that people unfollow your page. Never buy Facebook fans to make you look bigger than you are. It may be tempting to throw down some cash to buy your way in to big fan numbers but it never turns out the way you want. Those hallow fans bring nothing to the table and people who are in the business can see through this tactic in a heartbeat. Its never worth it. If youre working on building your fan base consider using "Like Ads". These are ads that include a call to action to Like your page right from the ad itself. These ads seem to be just as effective in the News Feed as they are in the right column so play with the placement.

When using Facebook to promote your business use photos to convey messages. Photos are a great way to showcase what you have to offer. They also allow you to write in descriptions and additional information that your users will find helpful or interesting. Dont neglect to describe your photos you will be missing out on key SEO and search capabilities. Joshua Van Dyk Specialized tips provider Use a cover photo on your Facebook page that really shows off your brand. For example show a picture of one of your bestselling products. You want to keep your products fresh in the mind of the public and choosing the right cover photo can make this a lot easier for you. Always answer comments and posts that show up on your Wall. Doing so helps you develop a good reputation. Consider posts on Facebook the way youd think of a phone call: respond and answer all the questions you can. Never rely on anyone elses advice as to when the best time for updating your page is. While a non-profit may find people are more charitable on the weekend that doesnt mean your customers arent actually checking out your page at work. Do your own research to figure out when you should be posting. Your posts should include valuable content. Your Facebook followers should find useful information in all your posts whether they relate to a great deal receive information about the latest product or obtain some tidbit of helpful information relevant to your brand. However avoid "selling" too much to prevent your followers from getting tired of having your name popping up on the news feed. Hiding content from non-fans is a great way to turn visitors into followers. If part of your Facebook is hidden so that just your followers can see it you can convert many visitors into followers. However dont hide too much as it will impact your SEO. Try sending updates. Facebook Page Administrators can send messages to every person that "Likes" their page. When you have something valuable on your Facebook business page that your fans should know about you can send them an update so that theyre aware of it. Be prudent with how often you do this by only sending updates to fans when its really important. Try to create a dialogue with your customers. Ask them what kinds of products are their favorite or if there is anything they would like to see added to your business. Try to keep the topics for dialogue positive. Do not ask them what was the worst experience they had with you or one of your products
