  • There are 900 million objects that people interact with (pages, groups, events and community pages) on Facebook! Where are you?
  • Every month
  • Company/Agent Information: Include your location, contact info, and more. Make it easy to contact you. The Wall: Serves as an open forum for your fans to leave comments, thoughts, and ideas; great place for clients to leave testimonials. Encourage the interaction!Discussion Boards: Enable fans to get ideas out in the open.Events: Organize gatherings! Let people know about your upcoming business events.Notes: Share your business news or engage your fans through written entries; similar to blogging, also allows for tagging. Photos: Upload photos to your page and allow your fans to share photos on your page also. Good way to show happy buyers post closing!Video: Facebook provides a high-quality video platform for pages.
  • Neither Facebook Pages nor Profiles allow any type of HTML in the main content section, but you can add FBML and HTML applications to add more stylized elements to a Page, like clickable images, anchor text and interactive content. The Static FBML app allows you to add advanced functionality to a page by placing a customizable box in which you can render HTML or FBML (Facebook Markup Language), giving you free reign over the space to add images, video, stylized text and almost whatever else you want. This app was developed by Facebook, so it’s fully supported and not prone to the problems of some third party applications.
  • This app was originally a Facebook feature that they then converted into an application; as such, it is sponsored and maintained by Facebook and less likely to break or be abandoned. Set this application up to pull in the RSS feed from your blog or other content source and it will automatically bring everything into Facebook and show all of your friends that you’ve posted a new Note.This notification system is important for staying on their radar and is more visible than an RSS Reader, or mini-blog as I like to call it, but lacks many formatting capabilities; it’s best to think of Notes and an RSS Reader as working hand in hand. Start here to get content coming into your Page, then move on to the RSS Reader.
  • Facebook ads allow you to advertise a website or something on Facebook, including Pages, groups, and events. If you’re familiar with Google Adwords, the system for building and running ads on Facebook is very similar.
  • When you create your Facebook page, the URL will first appear with over 100 characters including the name of your business, city and state, followed by a long string of numbers. Hardly easy to communicate! But as soon as 25 people have Liked your page, you can visit facebook.com/username and chose yours.
