Facebook can your business live without it ?

Facebook has dominated the social market place for sometime now!  If your business has an online presence then chances are someone has told you should have a Facebook page.

You are likely to be putting off the inevitable if you are telling yourself you don’t need a business Facebook page and the reality is your competitor is reaping the benefits of your tardiness.

Working with Twitter and Facebook for the last 10 years trying to promote blogs and articles and since I do not have a huge disposable income I am self taught.

This blog post is to let you in on a few secrets that you may not be aware of and Facebook would rather you did not know.

Join Stephen’s Facebook group Squidoo Social for free traffic and even more great Facebook, Twitter and Squidoo lens promotion tips.

If you already have a Facebook page you will be aware that FB are always changing the dynamics of a page and profile and making it more difficult for you to grow your fan base in an attempt to create revenue from page owners wanting to promote their business.

So whilst setting up a Facebook page is still for know free, in reality you are going to end up paying one way or another.

Many business pages started out using a technique known as Silent Tagging and this was a great way to get community likes in return for an hour or two spent liking other pages in your career field.

Unfortunately Facebook has cracked done on this too for the same reason mentioned above.

Facebook is forever changing the way pages work and these new rules limit the exposure of your page! This switch is so they can charge you to promote your own page posts!!

Share your page for FREE here! 

Then there’s photo tagging:
You can tag friends or Pages in photos you are able to view. If you tag a photo that was not uploaded by a friend, the owner of the photo will need to approve the tag.

Heres how to tag multiple photos in an album: Go to your photo albums using the “Photos” link on your profile or home page.

Select an album you have created. Click “Tag Photos” at the top of the page.
Enter the name of a friend or Page to tag them in the album.
Click on each photo you want to tag with that name.
Repeat this process for each friend or Page you’d like to tag.
Click “Save Tags” when you’re done.
To tag a single photo: Select “Tag This Photo” below a photo you’re viewing.
You can only tag Pages by viewing a photo in the new photo viewer.
Enter the name of a friend or Page to tag them in the photo.
Repeat this process for each friend or Page you’d like to tag.
Click “Done Tagging” to save the tags.

Tagging enables you to share photos or media to a large group of people but be sure they will accept or else you could end up breaking another set of Facebook rules.

Can I still get free likes?

In reality all likes are free and if yo work at managing your page then yes you will get a certain amount of viral traffic from people who genuinely do like your page.

Heres a few tips to master the technique

1. Be personal and interactive. It is the face and identity of your business. Fans will interact much better if they can identify with you. Here’s one of my many page to help you promote your lens or page Famousin24hrs

2. Make it interesting. Be helpful and informative. Make sure your content isn’t always purely commercial. Mix it up by posting interesting news that may be going on in your field.

3. Be active and update often. Post something new at least 2-3 times a day. Keep them informed about what you’re doing. Post pictures of new merchandise or something fun happening in your area. Tagging friends in your photos will help promote your product or service.

4. Keep it sharp, short and to the point. Your message must be concise to be easily read and quickly capture attention in order for users to engage. Especially if your page feeds to twitter get your message out in the first 140 characters.

5. Add links. Adding external links to a specific page on your website or blog will help support your message. Promoting other peoples pages is a good way to build lasting relationships.

6. Keep it clean. Keep it looking professional by not including the URL in the actual text box. Underneath the text box next to “Attach”, use the “Link” icon next to it. Insert the URL and click attach. Tagging allows you to mention pages without the full lik showing up similar to a twitter @tag .. You can mention upto 10 pages at once in these tags and on your profile page you can tag pages and friends.

7. Engage with your customers. If someone posts a question on your wall, reply back to them immediately. Encourage customer engagement by asking for feedback on products. Use the question app to get your customers feedback.

8. Listen to your customers. Sometimes customers may leave negative feedback, address it immediately and take this feedback into consideration. They can provide helpful insights on how to improve not just your Facebook Page, but your business.

9. Monitor your page. Check your page as much as possible every day. Check your hidden tab sometimes people will post spam messages on your wall and some you will want to unhide. Eliminate them immediately.

10. Create goodwill – Share the love. If someone “likes” your page, thank them personally. It is good to show your appreciation and will reflect positively on your reputation. Tag friends and pages to create links to generate traffic for everyones page.

    Auto dealers spend hundreds (sometimes even thousands of dollars) on traditional advertising methods such as TV,

    Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using? I'm planning to start my
    own blog in the near future but I'm having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking
    for something unique. P.S Apologies
    for being off-topic but I had to ask!
