Effective Facebook Fanpage Download Fully Updated for 2014
Did you set a business resolution with the New Year upon us?
We are two weeks into 2014, behavioral experts say it takes three weeks of an activity to become a habit, so if you’ve made changes to your marketing at the beginning of the year, you should be well on your way to creating some sustainable new practices.
Despite the best New Year’s resolutions, reality would have it; most of the successful entrepreneurs I work with do not have the time to devote to their marketing efforts. It’s not that marketing isn’t important to them; it’s rather they understand the value of working with an expert to achieve their marketing goals that otherwise may only receive sporadic attention.
If you are active in social media, you know that the platforms area always changing. Take for example cover photos. When Facebook first launched cover photos, there were many restrictions on what businesses could put on them. Those restrictions have been lifted, but have you had a chance to update your cover photo—giving it the attention it deserves? Are you up to date on what makes an effective cover photo while following Facebook guidelines?
Last year one of the most popular downloads from my website was Creating an Effective Facebook Fanpage. This guide helped many businesses enhance their Facebook Fanpages and helped others to realize that they’d rather outsource their social media presence to an expert.
If you are not using social media or Facebook as a part of your marketing mix, it’s time to put these vital tools to work for you. Need to be convinced or to convince somebody else (like your boss)? This guide also has lots of great stats on the merit of Facebook for marketing your business. Here is a sneak peak of just two:
It’s vital for businesses to have a Facebook presence as 80% of Faceook users prefer to connect with brands on Facebook. (WordPress Hosting SEO)
47% of Americans say that Facebook has a greater impact on their purchasing behavior than any other social network. (State of Search)
With more than 1.19 billion active monthly users, Facebook has become the new word of mouth (or perhaps words of mouse). Done right, Facebook makes it easy for others to learn about your brand and for people to tell their friends about you. Chances are, your best clients’ friends would likely also make amazing clients for you.
This important marketing platform cannot be left to chance. Just because the boss’ teenage daughter is always on social media, doesn’t mean she is equipped to create and manage an effective Facebook Fanpage. Many small business owners are tempted to delegate social media to the person ‘who is on social media’. While being on Facebook may give you the comfort of how the tool works, Business Fanpages have many unique features and apps. Understanding the nuances of a Facebook Fanpage and the special features to market your business on Facebook can set you apart and create a wonderful online presence for your prospects and customers alike.
A lot has changed since I first launched the Creating an Effective Facebook Fanpage – Edgerank is no longer, and you’ll find the info now under Facebook’s Algorithm. Many marketers have been noticing a decline in the reach they can achieve following Facebook’s changes. Understanding Story Bumping and Last Actor sheds light on how Facebook chooses to serve up content and how you understanding these recent changes will allow you to make the most of every post you publish.
