7 Tips on Using Facebook for Business

  1. 1. 7 Facebook Business Tips• With more than 1 Billion Users, Facebook is definitely something you have to consider using as part of your business strategy - if you havent done so already - and here are 7 things you can do right now!
  2. 2. 1 - Add a Hyperlink in the About Box• In the left column of your Page you’ll see the About box.• In this box, make sure to add a hyperlink to your website to encourage traffic to your site.• You have limited space, so keep it simple by posting something like this: Visit my page : http://chris-chong.com
  3. 3. 2 - Add a Facebook Like Box to Your Website• One of the best ways to drive traffic to your Facebook Page is to promote it on your own website.• A “Like Box” will make it extremely easy for your visitors to LIKE your Page without ever leaving your website.
  4. 4. 3 - Secure Your Custom Facebook URL• Once you create your Facebook Page and have 30 Fans, go to http://facebook.com/username and secure a username for your Facebook Page.• Keep it simple so people can remember it. If you get too creative with it, you might confuse your audience.
  5. 5. 4 - Ask Smart Questions to Increase Engagement• There’s a right way and a wrong way to ask questions on Facebook.• People move fast online and are unlikely to comment with lengthy replies.• Before you post, think of the likely responses.• Make sure you ask questions that allow for short and easy responses.
  6. 6. 5 - Create a Branded Timeline Cover Image• Your Timeline Cover image offers a great branding opportunity.• To take advantage of the space, make it 851 x 315 pixels.• On your Cover photo, include a picture or logo that represents your brand, the name of your company, and a tagline to tell people what you do.
  7. 7. 6 - Turn Your Content into Image Posts on Facebook• Photos on Facebook can generate 53% more likes than the average post (Hubspot, 2012).• Images can be photographs you take with your smartphone, quotes, stats, infographics, or anything you think will grab the attention of your ideal audience on Facebook.• 90% of your posts should include images.• Think about it, Facebook paid over $700 million just to purchase Instagram!
  8. 8. 7 - Experiment With Facebook Ads• Facebook Ads are a great way to increase your fan base, attract genuine leads and boost your profits.• Promoted Posts, Page Post Ads and Facebook Offers are three types of ads that are easy to set up, cost effective and incredibly valuable when you’re looking to get some real traction from your Facebook efforts.
