What Are The Benefits Of Using Facebook Marketing?

facebookmarketingtips         Technoreporter.com – If you don’t have time to maintain a Facebook page for your business, you can still use Facebook for marketing. Facebook provides ads on their site which can easily be hyper-targeted towards your exact target demographic, from their sex and age to their likes and dislikes, making your campaign hyper-successful, too.

With custom audiences, you can target your ads more effectively. This boosts the sales conversion rate and decreases campaign cost, since your audience will be larger.

Learn how to build a fan base. This means you probably don’t need to put a lot of money into your marketing until you’re able to build up a fan base of 5,000 or more people. The interest in your products will automatically start to skyrocket once that threshold is reached.

Have fun with your Facebook marketing. This seems like an odd tip, but really it’s very important. A lot of people approach Facebook marketing as a serious job. It is, but your tone can’t be too serious. This is a social medium where people gather to have a good time talking. If your brand feels like a stick in the mud, you won’t get much traction.

Get your subscribers to interact with you by asking some questions. You could for instance ask people to share a funny anecdote with you or to give their opinion on a certain topic. This is a great way to get your subscribers to interact with you and with each other.

Facebook Offers allows you to promote contests or free giveaways to your customers. All that you must do is give them the offer and then set up a Promo Post on the wall of your Facebook page. If it is a really good offer, you can even promote it to non-fans.

Give your followers something to sign up for. If you provide an incentive for registering, you are likely to gain more interested followers. Consider holding a contest or sweepstakes.

You should choose a strong argument to convince customers to subscribe to your social media updates. People need to see a value in joining your Facebook marketing campaign. You could for instance offer a small immediate discount to the customers who subscribe to your Facebook campaign before completing an order.

Facebook’s introduction of their Timeline format is altering strategies for many business marketers. Timeline allows for the posting of larger photos that are more likely to grab reader interest. Successful marketers are posting these larger pictures, coupled with a targeted call to action. This can run the gamut from downloading coupons to encouraging product users to upload their own pictures of your product in action.

Make your links more noticeable by adding an image. Facebook will display a preview of the link but sharing a picture related to the link you are sharing should make this update more visible. Choose your pictures carefully to make sure your audience will pay attention to the update you share.

Make use of the post scheduling tool on Facebook. Keeping posts regular, rather than clumping them together and then leaving the page to sit, will draw more visitors. If you don’t believe you will have time in the future to make weekly or daily posts, create several time-neutral posts at once and schedule them to appear at a later date.

Do not send too many mass messages to your fans. This is a very impersonal way to reach people, and many of them may delete the content before reading it. If you have something to share, create a status update about it. People are much more likely to read them.

Encourage two-way communication with your customers. If a customer posts a great photo of your product or service, share it with everyone. Also take advantage of the Reply feature getting rolled out to respond directly to particular comments on an individual basis. Facebook allows for both group and individual communication simultaneously.

The number of Likes on your page doesn’t affect its success necessarily. You want to reach out to people that have a genuine interest in your products. Look at how people are converting and you will see how well your site is doing.

Come up with your own voice. It may be tempting to approach your Facebook marketing just like you see others have done before you. Yes, learn from their tactics, but don’t steal their personality. It’s important to find your own personality online so that people know what to expect from you. Plus, it can feel disingenuous if it’s a personality that just doesn’t fit your brand.

Are you going to use what you’ve learned here to help you make your business grow? Most people enjoy social media sites, so use Facebook as part of your marketing campaign. Utilize the advice in this piece and expand your audience and your reach.
