If you have nothing valuable to say to your audience, do not say anything. People do not want to visit your page and be treated to information that is useless and/or dated. if you do not have anything relevant and unique to talk about, try sharing links or videos that are in the same niche.
Try your hand at Facebook ads. Routine postings can only get you so far in terms of promotion. To reach more into your specific channel, you should buy some ads on Facebook. They are not expensive, and can make a substantial difference.
Be careful of any images you post as ads, as only 20% of the image can be actual text. If you end up submitting an image which has more than 20% text, it will be rejected and you’ve wasted your time. Be creative and create an image which captures your audience’s attention.
If you’re working on building your fan base, consider using “Like Ads”. These are ads that include a call to action to Like your page right from the ad itself. These ads seem to be just as effective in the News Feed as they are in the right column, so play with the placement.
When using Facebook to promote your business, use photos to convey messages. Photos are a great way to showcase what you have to offer. They also allow you to write in descriptions and additional information that your users will find helpful or interesting. Don’t neglect to describe your photos, you will be missing out on key SEO and search capabilities.
It is truly a myth that every business HAS to be on Facebook. The cost of the time taken to plan your campaigns, maintain your page, communicate with fans, and advertise can become a massive burden on a small business owner. Consider carefully if the costs will be outweighed by the profit increases.
Try sending updates. Facebook Page Administrators can send messages to every person that “Likes” their page. When you have something valuable on your Facebook business page that your fans should know about, you can send them an update so that they’re aware of it. Be prudent with how often you do this by only sending updates to fans when it’s really important.
Try posting to Facebook at different times during the day. If you have a habit of posting at the same time every day, you may not know if there are better times to get engagement. Every target audience is different, and what works for one time-wise might not work for another. Try posting at multiple times during the day to see when your audience is the most active.
Get out that calendar and pencil in the tips we just went over together. Since you have some specific things to do, you just need to start doing them. Do one of these actions every time you turn on your computer and soon you’ll have more customers than you know what to do with.
