Do you want to find wealth online? Find out how Facebook, one of the internet’s biggest networks, will be able to help you with your endeavors.
Facebook is a social site launched in February 2004. Users create a personal profile, add other users as friends, and exchange messages, including automatic notifications when they update their profile. They may also choose to join common-interest user groups, organized by workplace, school or college, or other characteristics, and they may also use the Business Pages, which is the focus of this article.
It now has more than 600 million active users and more than twenty million customers log on to Facebook every day to interact using the Business Pages. Can you imagine, then, how easy it will be to make your wealth online by utilizing that 600-million strong membership for your business?
That figure already gives your business a huge edge against offline business competitors. If that’s not reason enough to create a Facebook Business Page for your, then here’s more: Facebook Business Pages are free of charge, easy to customize, and are quite legitimate and well-trusted.
However, creating a page is not the sole step to make money through Facebook. The next few steps would be a bit harder and will require a lot of work before the page can translate to real money.
1. Attract visitors. Using many different ways, you have to ensure that, in time, customers will begin to prefer your business page over others offering equivalent products or services. The most time-consuming, yet most crucial method to advertise your page is to regularly ensure that it is updated by informative content, status, and product descriptions. Be careful not to clutter the page with unnecessary posts, though.
2. Learn to differentiate between personal Facebook account and the business page. Remember that even though your business page is linked to your own account, it should be used in a different way. Get your personal information—house location, family members pictures, holiday programs, etc.—away from your Business Page. Only allow business-like posts which are relevant to your business for this account.
3. Let your page stand out from the rest. Make your page more noticeable than other pages through the use of free FBML programs, which you can setup as being the landing tab for your own webpage. Aside from that, add in some visuals—photos and video—since many users respond better to more visual cues.
4. Make your Facebook page just the lure and gateway to your other websites. Stimulate the appetite of your contacts for your products, or for the contents of your blogs by posting snippets, samples, reviews on your Facebook business page. Also, make sure that you post active links which will lead your user contacts to pages that will hold their interest for longer. The longer, more intense their experiences in your websites are, the bigger chance that you will earn from them.
