Welcome to the wonderful world of Facebook marketing. It is truly unlike any other form of campaign, especially those we’re used to. That means everything you’ve learned about marketing may not apply to such a campaign, so read on to see which traditional tips are no longer in play, and which new tips you should keep in mind.
Always keep in mind that the Facebook page for your business is a direct reflection of the professional image you want to convey. While social media usually has a relaxed tone, present your business and yourself professionally. People are going to trust your business when you remain professional.
Watch your grammar, even if you do not feel like it is necessary. You may feel like you can get away with a mistake here and there due to the nature of your business, but this is not true. If you know that your grammar has issues, run everything through a checker before you post it.
Give your Facebook page a really strong theme. Know what your about and deliver it in the graphical look of your page. Remember, you have one chance at making an excellent first impression on your new Facebook guests. To turn them into real fans, you’ve got to deliver from the first page load.
If you have a follower complaining on your Facebook page, try your best to resolve the issue publicly. This will let others know that you are a reputable business and will handle all of your obligations. If you cannot resolve a dispute with a customer publicly, try handling it in private.
Don’t neglect the audience you already have. Some marketers focus on getting new subscribers instead of taking care of their exist audience. Your audience should feel respected. This will help them engage themselves in your brand.
Make regular posts on your Facebook page. Setting up a page, putting in multiple posts on the first day, and then ignoring the page for the next several months will do nothing to improve your business. Set up a schedule for posting that meets your business’s purpose for the Facebook page, and stick to it.
Try using Facebook ads. Paid ads via Facebook can help your business because they let you target your audience in various ways. You are able to specify the gender, age group, location, and more of your audience. You can be as narrow or broad as you like when specifying their needs. Set campaign budgets and bid prices to test as many headlines, images, and ad copy as you like. If your campaign doesn’t work, you can stop it right away so that you don’t overspend on it.
Have your fans participate in decisions about your company. Customers love to feel important. There is nothing better than involving your fans in some of your business decisions. For example, as a blogger, you might ask your audience what types of posts they want from you.
Talk density helps you figure out how many people are mentioning you or your products on the social media platform. You want your talk density to be around 15 percent or more, as that would mean that you are getting plenty of attention. If it is lower than that, consider changing things up or adjusting your marketing strategy.
Don’t be afraid to get personal. Even if you’re a company, getting a little personal can really do a lot to build customer engagement and loyalty. But don’t go too far! People don’t need to know every single monotonous detail of your life. Find a happy balance that gets people interested in your brand.
Promote your Facebook page all over the place. Share the link to your social media profile on your website, on your personal page, on your blog, on your friends’ pages and anywhere else you can think of. The more exposure your page gets, the better it is for your business.
Organize a contest on Facebook. You should encourage your subscribers to tag you in one of their updates, for instance to share a picture of the product they bought or a review of a product. Give a free product to the entry that receives the most votes so contestants encourage their friends to vote on their entry.
Figure out the best time for your Facebook posts. You will get more attention for your updates if you post them when your subscribers are checking Facebook. You could for instance share updates around noon if your subscribers are likely to check Facebook during their lunch break or share your updates during the evening.
While there are many traditional marketing tips which do apply to marketing online, including on Facebook, there are a variety of new strategies which you must put to use to find the greatest success. Nothing is guaranteed, though. One thing that can be promised is that using the advice in this article will be a huge help.
