      • your business profile on facebook
      • fb pages are public by default
      • (appear in Google search results!)
      • facebook users become fans
      • fan = opt-in subscriber
      • (your company updates now appear in their newsfeed)
      • fans are viral
      • facebook provides the infrastructure
    • why bother:
      increase organic leads
      build thought leadership
      increase organic (non-paid) search engine traffic
      improve recruiting
      improve customer relationships
      build a community
    • customercommunication
      traffic to
      your site
      search engine
      Great for engaging people who like your brand, want to share their opinions, and participate in giveaways and contests
      Facebook pages are great for brand exposure. Jump-start your brand exposure through the ad platform when your page is fully setup.
      Traffic is decent and on the rise thanks to share buttons , etc., but don’t expect massive numbers of unique visitors to go to your site.
      Little to no value aside from blogs picking up and featuring your posted links.
      Use keyword search monitoring through a program such as Hootsuite, TwitJum or Radian 6 to track what people are saying about you and your competitors.
      Offers unique opportunities for web site integration and to engage with customers in a viral way, helping your company stand out from the masses.
      Potential can be large, but promotion is an art form – promote your brand too heavily and turn off followers, yet don’t promote enough and receive little attention.
      SEO value is limited, but tweets will rank high in search results – good for ranking your profile name and breaking news, though shortened URLs are of little benefit.
      Not the primary focus, but customer engagement opportunities are possible by answering industry-related questions, establishing yourself as an expert in the field.
      Effective for personal branding and demonstrating you and your company’s professionalism. Encourage your employees to maintain complete profiles to strengthen your team’s reputation.
      Unlikely to drive any significant traffic to your site, though you never know who those few visits might be from – perhaps a potential client or customer.
      Very high page rank – almost guaranteed on the first page of search results – especially for your company name or individual employees’ names.
