5 Steps to a Facebook Page - Free Guide


(Extract) - What use is Social media?

Think of social media as the new ‘word of mouth’. The key element of most social media platforms is that the information (content) is primarily from the public and/or can be interacted with in some way by the public. Facebook is the biggest and best known with nearly a billion users.  If you can answer yes to most of these statements your business needs a Facebook page:

  •      Most of my customers are female
  •      My products appeal to females and something they buy regularly
  •      My products are relatively low cost and can be impulse purchases
  •      My products have visual appeal (images of fresh / cooked food are good)
  •      My customers are regulars and I can contact or leaflet them easily
  •      My products can be bought online
  •      I often have special offers or deals on my products
  •      My competitors have a Facebook page
  •      I would like to attract new customers in the 20-40 age bracket
  •      I would like a post I made to be seen for free by potentially 10,000+ people

Worried About Negative Comments on Facebook? Free Guide

 (Extract) A conversation, by definition, involves 2 or more people – it usually encompasses words, views and maybe humour but it may also involve body language, eye contact, inflections and a lot of etiquette – things which define us as human beings.  Facebook is already hugely limited to just a few words and images on a page, so to limit it further by making it a one-way conversation is to miss the point and will drive people away.  See more in our guide here
