For most of us, Facebook is one of (if not THE) #1 social media websites that we use in our business. It’s such a useful tool for so many things including getting our businesses out there, finding new clients, and even finding new staff. Plus, it’s a great way to network with other local businesses in your community to establish those critical relationships. In this week’s podcast, I sit down with Erika to discuss 8 things you MUST do well on your business’s Facebook page in order to grow your business.
Biggest Takeaways You Don’t Want To Miss
- Facebook is ever-changing, but there are a few aspects of the website that will always stay the same. Facebook will always be focused on community and interaction. Understand that Facebook is meant for people who already know and are following your business – it’s not really designed for first-time visitors. Don’t forget that Facebook is “borrowed land” – in other words, you need your own website as well!
- One of the biggest questions pet business owners ask me is “how do I start more conversations on my Facebook page?” Or, “how do I get more people on my Facebook page?” First and foremost, respond to everyone! You wouldn’t like it if you started a conversation with someone and they didn’t answer, so don’t do it to your Facebook page visitors. Next, invite people to like your page. There are loads of potential people that you could be inviting to like your page.
- Aside from our businesses Facebook page, there is another way that you can get more eyes on your brand and content. The best way to do this is to join Facebook groups in your area. Mom groups are especially powerful for pet businesses. Some ideas of useful content to post might be:
- School bus etiquette for the dog
- What to do when the dog loses his playmate for school
- School vacations
- Kid & dog-friendly restaurants
- The biggest mistake business owners make on their Facebook page is not using enough pictures! You absolutely must add a picture to everything you post on your page. Social Media Examiner reports that 74% of social media marketers use visual assets in their social media marketing, ahead of blogs (68%) and videos (60%). BrainRules.net states that “When people here information, they’re likely to remember only 10% of that information three days later. However, if a relevant image is paired with that same information, people retain 65% of the information three days later.” A final statistics show that “People following directions with text and illustrations do 323% better than people following directions without illustrations.”
