Facebook for Business

Social Media: Facebook

Social Media: Facebook

We hear a lot of thoughts when it comes to social media-  especially the why and how to use it for business.  The most commonly referred to platform is Facebook- for good reason.

Have you said or thought any of these:

“Why should I use Facebook for business? I don’t even use it personally.”
“Facebook isn’t my audience.”
“I can manage my Facebook page myself, it’s not that hard.”
“I just use my personal Facebook page as my brand page”
“I can do it myself, I mean, how often do you really have to post stuff- once a week?”

Well, here are some helpful statistics to think about.

Facebook for business:
There are over 1.5 billion people on Facebook. 900 million of them on it every day. Facebook touches every age group from 18-65+

 

Successful Facebook for business pages post multiple posts per day, and managers spend between 4-6 hours on Facebook daily to create a positive and active presence. And this isn’t even accounting for the in-depth advertising components of Facebook.

Have you put together a detailed strategy for your social media? Do you have a dedicated employee who understands the ins and outs of what to post, when to post it and where?
No? We can help.

First Things First: What is Marketing?

First Things First: What is Marketing?

Chances are, you’ve heard the term “Marketing” applied to many things. From using social media to making cold calls, marketing covers a wide array of topics. Most people equate marketing with either sales or advertising, seeing a direct correlation between the sale of your product or service with either paid advertisements or a successful sales team. This makes sense- you see an increase in sales, and you know your marketing efforts are working. But, marketing is much more involved than that. And most businesses are only touching the tip of the iceberg when it comes to a full marketing strategy. There is a bigger picture.

Which is why, whenever I am asked what marketing really is, I explain it as an umbrella term.

Allow me to illustrate: What is marketing?

 

See what I mean? Most businesses have not developed a detailed business strategy that accounts for ALL of these things and how a well-developed plan can dramatically increase sales, even more so than you are currently experiencing.  But how do you do ALL of this? Honestly, you can’t. You are too busy running your business. That’s where we come in.
