Business Networking And Facebook

April 07, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 126

With advertising dollars being used more creatively than ever, Social and Viral Marketing sites have sprung up all over the Internet. More and more businesses are using Facebook to build their brand and promote their products.

Considering that over 50% of businesses are still not portraying their companies with websites, Facebook has become an integral part of a coordinated Marketing Campaign. What better way to expose your products and services, than to familiarize yourself with the buying public? On this site, you can stay connected to friends, customers, potential customers and even your vendors. It is simple but effective and you will see some impressive increases in your revenue, if you do it right.

Starting your business Facebook page is simple, but in the case of a business, be thorough. There is a Business Profile. Complete it and use your own creativity to explain to potentially millions of viewers what you do and how you do it. By staying connected with all of the people that see your page, will go a long way to assisting you in increasing revenue. If you have products that can be bought online, where better can you get this kind of exposure, so maximize this opportunity.

Many of your customers are likely Facebook members. By offering your Facebook Friends special discounts, promotions and the like, you are showing that you appreciate their business and that they are special because you connected with them on this site. Obviously, the more friends and fans that you have, the better it is for your business. Join some of the groups that are available that are likely similar businesses to yours. All of these Networking techniques will prove to be strong relationship builders.

Post pictures of your business and pictures of you with your family. It makes you a real person, not some corporate robot that is not interested in anything but making money. It is subtle, but it works. Your customers and suppliers need to know that you are a real person. Just do not miss out on all of the marketing available to you.

When you are traveling, you can notify both vendors and customers that you are going to be in their area. These social sites are opening doors because you are doing something that much of your competition is not doing. Remember, unless you have created a product or service that no one else has or does, now a days, you have to prove to your customers that they should shop with you. This is not an option, it is imperative.

Staying connected is the only way that your business will flourish, in this economy. Facebook offers a multitude of ways for you to do just that. If you wish to prosper and this is likely why you are in business in the first place, then expose your self to the world, promote to the buying public and build you business. In the process, you will likely make some new friends and maybe even find that lost someone that you have always pined for.
