You worked hard to get your page up and running, it looks great! Your Cover Image is fun, bright, excellent photography. Your Business Profile picture is professional. Your page name is clear and concise, meaning I know who you are and what you do… your location of business is defined…right?
I mean we are talking about the world-wide-web… this information goes out into cyber-space and lands somewhere… do I know it’s you?
Your Message – Postings
Just take a minute and think about your own activity on Facebook. When you log in you land on your home tab… this is where all your friends postings can be found… you skim through it fast to get updates and look at photos and generally just feel good about the messages you’re reading… Next time you do this pay attention to what catches your eye… how relevant the information is to you… what type of eye candy jumps out and makes you feel something…anything… Now – write this down!!!!
Build your goals and postings for your business page around these emotions…the sayings, pictures and information that attracted you to read on…..but be real, be you, and connect your page through what excites you… Your business page needs a component of business for sure…. but step away from the box a little and realize that your business is much more than your products and service… it should in most cases include your surroundings and educational facts and tips that add value to your reader’s life…
Each one of us has a treasure chest of information that others would love to know or hear about…go into your photos or archives and find older information that is still relevant and that you would want to share…next time you head outside look at your surroundings for new material to post… think of how you can include testimonials for other businesses… sharing and caring is how you can become the most effective on Facebook…
