5 Reasons You Should Be On Facebook:
Can be more effective than your own website
With hundreds of millions of users, most of which log in at least once a day, your business should be taking advantage of those figures. It’s a possibility that your customers don’t visit your website everyday.
Every time your fans / customers connect to Facebook, they are automatically shown all of your updates including special offers, new products, events or anything else you added while they’ve been away. This means that you don’t have to convince people to go to your website as Facebook is doing it for you!
Your Customers Want You to be on Facebook
If you have loyal customers, they will want to be associated with your product/service and will actively promote your business through their own network of friends. Sharing things that people like is natural on Facebook, and that should be your business.
All it takes is a quick ‘like’ on your business page and your fans will be sharing everything they like about you and giving you great feedback.
Rise the Ranks of Google Searches
If your finding that visitors to your own website aren’t as many as you’d like or whenever you search for your business it doesn’t even show up on page one, then using Facebook can help you out.
Google loves new, fresh content and a site which is visited as much as Facebook, as well as your regularly updated business page means that Google will rank you very high and in turn send traffic to your own website.
FREE Word of Mouth Advertising
When you update your Facebook page, it will appear in your fans’ newsfeed, which gives them the opportunity to ‘like’ what you’ve posted. When this happens it’s also shown and recommended to their friends.
If you have just 100 fans, and they have 100 friends each that means 10,000 people will potentially see the link to your page’s posting. That can happen every time you post something so you’d be crazy not to take advantage!
FREE Market Research
Building a fan base is all well and good, but using it to grow your own business is an even better idea. Do you have a new product coming out or an event happening soon? Put it on Facebook and get your customers thoughts and feedback.
Gather precious information about trends and spending habits, what’s hot and what’s not, where people like to go and what they like to do… the list is endless and there is no doubting Facebook as an extremely powerful, and FREE, market research tool.
By now you should have a quick insight into the power of Facebook for your business, so all you need now is a FREE business page. We can set that up for you or if you’d like some more advice, get in touch. We’re here to help…
