This article is for small business owners who are interested in using Facebook to grow their business. Every small business should be on social media, especially Facebook. There are a number of tools that Facebook can use and apply to small businesses, from powerful advertising options to Facebook groups. A robust Facebook presence will help connect potential customers and grow your business. Jake McKenzie, Content Manager at AutoAccessoriesGarage.com, said: “Having a Facebook page helps legitimize your business in the eyes of the customer. "Or another way to look at it. A business without a Facebook profile may seem like the best thing is obsolete or at worst the worst." While there are many ways to promote your business on Facebook, it can be difficult to know where to start. Here are six easy steps to make Facebook work for you.

1. Create a business page.

If you want to have a permanent and professional Facebook presence, you need to create a separate page for your business - your personal Facebook profile will not cut it. A page is like a normal profile, but it's for brands and businesses. Also, instead of asking someone to be "friendly", users should "like" or follow a page to see the post on the page. According to Hootsuit, here's how you can create a Facebook Business Page:

Sign up. You will either need to use your personal Facebook page, or you can create a page from scratch. Go to https://www.facebook.com/pages/create and select the page type you want to create. Fill in the page name, category and description; Then click Create Page. Add photos. It is important to add a profile and cover the photos to reflect what your business is doing. Since these pictures give your clients your first impression, use high quality images that positively portray your business. Select pictures and click save.

Create a username. Your username, also known as a useless URL, is how your customers find you on Facebook. Your username must be the same or approximately the same as your business name to avoid confusion. When you have completed the second step, you will see "Create username" under your page name. Create a name for your page and click here to save.

Enter your information. When you set up your Facebook page you will see that there are a lot of options to customize it. Add as much information as possible about your business, including your business name, address, contact information, website, business hours, products, and more. You can add additional categories to ensure that your company is included in all relevant searches on the website. As you gather information, use strategic keywords that tell readers and Facebook what your page is.

Tell your story. Even if you have already entered information about your business, you will find that you can explain the story behind your company or brand. In this section, talk about why and how you created your business, what makes your brand unique, the services and products you provide and anything else you think are relevant to the customer. Make your first statement. Before you invite people to like your page, add some content to it. Your first statement might be a simple "Welcome to our page!" Or you can post a deal or a coupon, a picture, a video, a link or anything you think is a good introduction to your brand.

Publish and invite followers. Once you've entered all the details, it's time to expand your audience! Invite people to like your page once all the information is complete.

2. Post regularly on your Facebook page.

In order to use Facebook to promote your business, you need to do more than just set up a Facebook page - you need to use it and post it regularly.

"Post whenever you can, at least once a day," said Katie Campbell, Fondera's social media manager. "You want your audience and customers to feel that you know your business and that you can get involved."

It is important to post regularly and post quality content. Campbell suggests behind-the-scenes sharing of information and photos about your employees and posts that showcase your products or services. This demonstrates your commitment to transparency and quality.

If you are not sure what your customers want to see, give it a try. You can use Facebook's voting features to ask what they want to see or look at Facebook page insights, which can help you get rid of it by sharing guesses. Facebook Insight is free for every business page and shows valuable information such as how many people are associated with each position and how many people it reaches. If you are concerned that posting on Facebook will increase your time, consider using Facebook Publishing Tools to make earlier notes. This will help you to streamline the mailing process - posting it will ensure that your mind does not slip.

3. Leverage friends of fans.

People are more likely to try something if their friends are already using it. As customers interact with your page, their friends will see the activity of their newsletter. You can nurture more interactions by asking polls and questions your followers need to answer.

"Social media is the new 'word of mouth'. You want to be able to tag your business when people talk about you," said Kat Smith, owner of Cat Social with Cat. "Your customers are your best mentors."

Encourage customers to check out your business on Facebook when they arrive by offering a small discount to anyone who does. Checking lets users tell their friends where they are. Encourage users to host a contest or sweepstakes and post about your business.

You can also create special events and limited-time promotions and invite your followers to invite your friends.

4. Contact your followers.

Facebook's new algorithm favors linked posts and pages. Before posting anything on Facebook, ask yourself if it creates a conversation. It’s important to remember that Facebook is a social media platform, so you need to be social.

"We need to interact with business followers in response to customer feedback, questions and concerns," Campbell told Business News Daily. "Use your Facebook page for what you mean: a social networking site. Get to know your customers' needs by conducting polls and responding to reviews."

The key to engaging is to publish quality content. Try to be friendly and conversational for best results. Keep updates on time and respond to comments and private messages.

5. Try Facebook ads.

If you have a problem reaching out to Organ Organ users, try Facebook Ads. Promoted Facebook posts may look like ordinary articles, but they are more targeted and reach more people.

Facebook's tools are very effective and make it easy to target specific audiences. You can target people who like your page or location, age, gender, and tastes. Because Facebook collects user data, it can target people who are often interested in your product or service.

The platform also includes an analytics tool that helps you understand what drives advertising interest and sales.

6. Write amazing content for your Facebook audience.

According to WordStream, you can create interesting content for your Facebook business page:

Publishing various content. By posting a variety of content such as photos, videos, GIFs, press releases, blogs, articles, you are more likely to entertain and attract your audience. Each post ends with a question. One of the great ways to create amazing, compelling content is to ask a question at the end of each article. This will help increase your contact level and make your page more interactive overall.

Using competition neutrals. By creating contests and allowing your customers to win prizes, discounts, etc., will make your page more attractive and increase sales.

7. Start a Facebook group.

Building a community around your product, service or brand can be a great way to connect with customers on one level. These groups can be immediately involved in your business, they can be affiliated with your business, or they can organize people around a cause that is relevant to your business. For example, a marketing agency may want to create a Facebook team focused on answering small business marketing questions, or a woman-owned business may want to create a team to share content with other female creators.

8. Use not only pages but all Facebook features.

New Facebook features are activated regularly. By 2020, consider using tools such as Facebook Live, Facebook Videos, and Facebook Stories to promote your business.

  • Facebook Live: Go live in the sky to connect with your viewers in real-time. Your followers will be notified that you are going live and can be tuned in to watch. The recording is given back for play and can be watched later if followers are unable to connect. You can interview a guest, show them how to use a product, or show them an opportunity you can showcase.

  • Facebook Video: Video consumption - especially mobile video consumption - is on the rise. Use Facebook videos to get that video content in front of your Facebook viewers. Eighty-five percent of businesses use video content as a marketing tool that not only leaps ahead of you but also a medium that is in growing demand.

  • Facebook Stories: Use the Story feature to publish content that appears in the user's feed 24 hours a day. (Stories expire after 24 hours.) As the platform continues to grow, this tool is great for enhancing your business's organic approach, which is difficult to achieve through Facebook.

9. Make a plan.

Deciding what and when to publish on Facebook should be part of an overall strategy that complements your other marketing, marketing and public relations activities. Organize this material into a content calendar that you or your staff can use to design and monitor content published on Facebook and other marketing platforms and channels. Use this content calendar to identify important holidays, announce sales, share company announcements on your Facebook page, and more.

10. Continue to grow URL.

Consider marketing activities that will help you increase your audience even when your customers are not on computers or phones. For example, customers may be encouraged to write Facebook reviews or give a coupon or special offer in lieu of a new follower. Customers can be encouraged to stay active through other channels such as email marketing to access your Facebook page to view great content.
