      I used to use Facebook for keeping in touch with my family. Over time I have come to realise it is a great way to share info, pictures and tips. Facebook pages can be used for all sorts of things and I didn’t realise companies use them for their business promotion. This is awesome, but if you make a page and their is no active interest. You will find it hard to get visits and interest to your business.

    I have been thinking about making a FB page for my WA website. You just encouraged me to get my backside off the chair and take action. Thanks for sharing.

      Thats wonderful news. Then you will have a place you can easily share your domain posts to let more people know your site is growing. Google will love your site more, don’t forget to link them to each other when you’re ready. once you are set up, I would recommend if you haven’t used this before to take a look. (http://nibbler.silktide.com/) it allows you to test you website upto I think 20 times for free. This gave me tips and is why I also made a twitter account and linked it. I want more people to be able to find me more easily. If I go to town and put up one poster, only so many people will see it. If I put up the same poster in other towns more people will get to know me. This is great for my poster popularity. (social media = more views = higher rankings on search engines. Hope this helps.

    Great post. I do have a FB page for my website but it does not get much traffic, but then I do not add any content. I seem so busy just adding content to my website. Guess I need to get busy! Your article was very informative and I definitely learned a lot. Thank you so much for sharing!

      You’re very welcome. If you want your business to grow you also need your social network to grow. This can greatly improve your traffic if people are talking about your links to your blog. Google will like this too as it shows your blog is active and currently gaining alot of real interst.

    I’m looking for ways to get more out of Facebook for my online businesses, but as yet Facebook has really failed to deliver. Since Facebook made changes to try and get more people to pay for advertising, so many posts go unseen, despite having over 3000 connections on my personal profile alone.

    On a personal level, interacting with friends and family, sharing photos etc., is really cool, but I’m yet to be convinced it’s that great for business.

    Facebook ads is another story.

      I have found that advertising with Facebook when you don’t know what you are doing can be costly. It is better to build a custom audience and create your advert targeting your niche, than to make an advert and just post it to anyone aged 18-65+ or just to get a click to a website. If its not relevant to that group of people they wont stay long.

      I find more of my post will get seen on my Facebook page if I build my audience and keep track of who’s post I have shared and liked. This way I can build more conversations and interest. Its a great way to share what you have to offer with other people or groups, these should be ones that have a similar interest in your niche. Also if you have a good profile you may make more friends. I wouldn’t focused to much on advertising until I master building an audience. A business without a good audience cannot hope to see much growth.
