Ways to Use Facebook Marketing Gold Coast… How Facebook Helps Your Business be more social…
- The LIKE button – at the top of a Facebook Business Page is a ‘LIKE’ button. When users click the Like button, from then on they will receive the ‘updates’ or ‘posts’ from that particular Facebook Page’s ‘Wall’. The Wall is the epicenter for engaging with ‘fans’ on a Facebook Page.
Once a user clicks the like button, any updates from that business’s Page will appear in the users ‘News Feed’, which is the first page the user, sees when they log into their Facebook account.
- The Wall – there are three 3 default menu items on a Facebook Page. They are ‘Wall’, ‘Info’ and ‘Photos’. The Wall is where your ‘conversations’ with your fans occurs. You can post updates about your business, products, services, news, and items of interest, anything you can think of!
Fans that read your post can then click ‘like’ in response to what you’ve written and may choose to ‘comment’, sharing their thoughts and opinion in relation to your post. This is where you can really connect with prospects and customers to generate conversations that help to build trust, credibility and expand your relationship with your fans.
- Sharing – when you post on your Wall fans also have the option to ‘share’ the post, meaning that they can tell their friends about the post which opens up further opportunities for new fans. This is where Social Media becomes ‘viral’. If you consistently create posts that are shared, you can attract quite a number of new fans at zero cost to you.
