Every business wants to be in Facebook, have a lots of “likes”, “friends”, “fans”, etc. and if you are reading this blog is because you are searching for more information for your business or yourself, but beyond have a nice look, and profile picture, what do you need is purpose, the main idea, why you are here in Facebook?
Have a Plan, what do you want achieve?
continue to engage your existing fans, creating loyalty rather than get new customers.
‘And in the end, the love you get is equal to the love you give,’
maybe your plan is just getting more and more people on fan’s list, but looks what happen when you put your effort in give more to your existing fans to get them “fall in love” with your product.
Walmart effect is not so effective here
Real relations and good connection instead of quantity, a decent list of loyal fans and readers is worth more than 3000 blind friends, in other words, if 5 friends “like” one of your product’s posts your exposure potential increase several times than if you just have 3000 “not answering” friends
Always have a website beyond your Facebook Fan page
Do you really wants control of the way your business looks and the amount of information do you want a display? Facebook doesn’t give you the opportunity of customize and craft and measure your user experience as a real website
