You have probably heard of Facebook…
many people today spend most of their time on Facebook while on the Internet.
Not only that, but you’ve probably noticed that most businesses are quickly trying to establish their ground on Facebook.
Just about every website, TV commercial, flyer, and any other advertising methods include a statement such as, “Like Us on Facebook,” or “Connect with Us on Facebook,” or “Find Us on Facebook.”
So, it’s no secret that Facebook is crucial when it comes to marketing. If your business does not have a presence there, you are missing out on a LOT of potential business.
According to official Facebook statistics, there are currently more than 750 MILLION active Facebook users and 50% of them log in EVERY DAY.
People spend over 700 BILLION minutes per month on Facebook. Not only that, but more than 2.5 MILLION websites have been integrated with Facebook !
I’m sure you are starting to see the big picture here…
Facebook is HUGE.
Facebook started out as a site where people connected on a personal level, but it has grown into an extremely powerful marketing tool for business owners.
There are several ways for businesses to connect with local consumers using Facebook. And it’s easy since Facebook marketing can be easily geo-targeted to people in your local area.
One way to really connect with your local consumers is to create a business Facebook FanPage. This will allow you to communicate with your customers on a consistent basis.
In fact, many people today “expect” businesses to have a FanPage.
Your FanPage acts as a “website” on Facebook, where you can share information about your business, communicate with your followers, and offer coupons and other promotions.
If your audience loves your product or service, they will GLADLY remain a loyal fan!
