How much do you know about online marketing? Can you use that expertise on Facebook? Perhaps you usually take the more traditional marketing approach. No matter if you are new or an expert, these tips can help anyone.
Facilitate regular interaction with your followers so you understand their needs and interests. Make sure you take notice when people post on your page. Lots of successful entrepreneurs have gleaned great marketing ideas right from members of the public. Remember that customers are the lifeblood of your company. If they desert you, you are toast.
When using Facebook to do your marketing, take advantage of tools like Facebook Offers whenever possible. Once the offer is ready, change it on your wall so it shows as a Promoted Post. If the offer is very good you can also promote it to those who are not fans.
Make sure to respond to all comments and inquiries sent to your Facebook page. Make sure to give helpful answers, and thank them for their time. Share links to your site or FAQs page to help answer common questions.
If you want to target a custom audience, you can do that. This can increase your conversion rate while lowering your campaign costs as more of your audience morphs from being leads to becoming customers.
If someone ‘likes’ your Facebook page, give them a deal. You can glean a lot of attention through Facebook likes. It is appealing to users to get a free gift when they give a page a like. You could give it out to everyone or just have one winner. If you give people something that they find useful, then they’ll have no problem becoming a follower of your page.
Of course, you want your Facebook marketing efforts to pay off. Set yourself a monthly sales goal when you start marketing on Facebook. Although achieving many page likes is good, if you cannot get these likes to translate into sales, this does not matter. If your business hasn’t improved, you might want to change your strategy up.
Offer an easy way for your followers to sign-up for contests. Give away something to provide incentive for folks to do so. You can hold a contest or a spot for them to put their information in.
Be sure that you’re trying hard to put a personality behind your brand. If the information you post is bland, then people are going to think this about your business and products. Show some personality, but try to make sure you are always professional.
Keep your audience as informed as possible regarding your products and services offered. You don’t want to overdo this. You should limit your posts to once a day or so. Don’t post every hour. Keep your content quality driven at all times.
