You have a Business and you have a Facebook Page, why?
When you look at Social Media, such as Facebook, in a business context, you have be a little old school in your thinking. Not that long ago, eMail was the most cutting edge thing about the Internet. There was no Facebook and there was no Twitter. Public Relations or PR was handled either by the boss or by someone appointed to handle it. You would phone in your complaints or send them in using eMail or even snail mail.
Today, the Internet allows us to handle Public Relations differently, you can still use the above methods (and some still do) or, you can use Social Media. And one Social Media tool, in particular, stands out – Facebook. Facebook is perfect for Public Relations.
You can use facebook to announce a new product or service, you can provide your customers with tips on how to to get the best out of their purchases. Your clients and followers can post compliments and they can post complaints. The very nature of Facebook allows you to get a conversation going, though when it comes to complaints you may want to take the conversation elsewhere.
Facebook Page updates get posted to your followers timelines and to follow your Facebook page they first have to like it.
But you knew all that, did you not? So where am I going with this? Simple, I will only like 3 types of pages, one that will inform or entertain me, a product or service I am interested in and those of my clients.
So when I receive a request to like a page for something that I will never use in my lifetime, so please do not angry when I not like your page. You will never get business from me, ever. Rather spend time finding the sector of the market who want your product.
Of course if you do not know where to find your market, drop me a line and ask how I can help you to solve the problem.
