We all want our business Facebook page to brim with new "Likes", but how? Utilize these four tips for growing your Facebook business page:
- Send a personal inbox message: Shoot your Facebook connections an "Inbox message" asking them to "Like" your Facebook business page. To make it easy, be sure to cut and paste the actual business Facebook page link and thank them for their support.
- Share page through Facebook status posts: Social media marketing your business page link on your personal Facebook page offers another avenue for your Facebook connections to "Like" your page. Often, friends want to support us, so encourage your Facebook friends by asking them to "Like" your business page through status posts.
- Ask your professional network: Engage and request your clients, service providers and connections within the community to "Like" your business page on Facebook through word of mouth, company website, literature, emails, etc.
- Utilize Facebook ads: Any Facebook business page can purchase Facebook ads. This service usually cost more than $1.00 per new "Like" and allows you to market your page to very specific age groups, genders, professions, and even allows you to determine ideal customers based on their hobbies and interests, etc., if desired.
Make sure you keep a running tally of who you've asked and who has actually "Like" your business Facebook page. It's also important to remember, not everyone will respond to your request; people may not respond because they don't fully understand the process, the link you've sent may be "broken" in their browser or they just don't really use Facebook... either way, through these processes, you will make a difference and spreading the word in a healthy way to your connections.
In today's business world, social media marketing is a value tool best incorporate within your marketing mix. Having an up-to-date website, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn business page will keep you on top of the social media scene and grow your professional presence.
