Good Facebook marketing has a chance to give us what we care about, but only on the condition that we skilfully use the opportunities it gives us. Facebook is definitely the king of Social Media, so if we have something completely free, as to our proper action can give us the greatest achievements, why not use it? According to research, every fourth person in the world uses Facebook. So how to start your adventure with the world of Facebook and the opportunities it gives every entrepreneur step by step.
Step one – we set up a fan page
To set up your own fanpage, you must first have a private account. This is the most important thing to start with. So if we have an account, just go to create the page. If we don’t have one, then we have to set up an account, which is also not a difficult task, and then proceed to the activity of creating a fanpage. How to do it? In our own account, up on the right next to the Home tab, we are developing the create tab, under which there are a number of different types of activities. We can create a website to make contact with clients and build a brand, we can create an advertisement, create a group, create an event or fundraiser. We are interested in fanpage, so we set up a website. This is the beginning that makes marketing on Facebook start to sprout, because we are taking the first step from which everything will actually start.
Step two – let’s take care of the appearance
It is not without reason that the proverb “As they see us, they write us” is still valid. A potential customer sees first, and if something interests him, then he reaches for more. If we already have our own fan page, because we managed to create it, we need to take care of its appearance. First, we need to create a profile picture. It is extremely important, because on its basis a brand is often created, which is later recognizable. Recipients see our picture and already know how to combine it. Photography should refer to our company, our services or products as much as possible, so that when looking at it, you immediately have an association with what we offer as a business. The second photo is in the background, which will be visible when a person enters our site. And here you should take care of full professionalism and even the smallest details. Of course, photos can be changed at any time, but if we already have a company fanpage, it is worth staying in a given climate, that the customer gets used to what he sees and that our photo is our hallmark. Marketing on Facebook has its own rules, so you need to know how to act to get what you really want.
Step three – relevant content
If we already have pictures, we should focus next on the substance. So we create content that will allow us to gain a professional company in the eyes of potential customers. The description tab allows us to describe us as owners, show some information about our company, write what we do, what we offer, what we focus on. The more original and appealing the description, the greater its effectiveness on the web. It’s good to remember the keywords that are related to our industry. Facebook is a social networking site, so it’s worth staying loose, friendly and informal, because it reaches customers faster than professional text with sophisticated words.
Step four – posts
Having a fan page, having a great profile picture, background picture or thumbnail picture, and excellent content, the next element, the last element is inserting posts. If we want to be visible, we need to update the page, be up to date, not to forget about ourselves. Only in this way will Facebook marketing be an appropriate form of advertising for our company. It’s best to insert one post per day, but taking care of its content and form. The point here is not to insert anything every day, but to make sense, carry a message, let customers learn something, gain something.
Building appropriate relationships with our fanpage fans is the key to success. Undoubtedly, it’s worth getting down to running a Facebook page as professionally as possible, because only in this way will we be able to achieve what is the key to our company’s success. The more we give, the better the results will be.
