It might seem like a very simple and self-explanatory task but so many business owners don’t make a page for their business! It’s so easy to sign to up and you can manage your page from your personal Facebook page. You want to make sure that you create a description of your business that clearly conveys the identity of your brand. Make sure you upload photos that appeal to your potential clientele.

Use Hashtags

Using Hashtags allows for more visibility of your business. You can gain more of a following from people who are interested in your field just by using hashtags. You can create a hashtag specific for your business to brand yours and follow your clients because all of the posts are in one place. For example, 4WRD uses a couple of hashtags to distinguish our business from others. We use the hashtags, #4wrd, #4wrdlife, and #move4wrd. There are simple hashtags that distinguish 4WRD from other companies.

Networking

Having a Facebook Page allows you to network with people in your field. Using things like hashtags, you’ll be able to find similar businesses to yours and even consumers looking for a business like yours! Following their page allows you to connect with them and be able to see their ideas and what they’re doing with their business. This can lead to collaboration or even the sharing of ideas to help your business.

Having a presence on Facebook can do so much for you as a business owner. When it comes to promoting your business, you can only reach so many people face to face. This is why having a Facebook page is so important! Because of this exposure, you can gain clients that you were unable to interact with before.

Facebook makes it so easy for your potential clients to easily connect with you. All your information is right on the Facebook page for these clients to contact you. The Facebook gives them your phone number, email address, business hours and location (all of these if provided). This leads to more interaction with potential clients and leads for your business, which in turn, leads to more production and profit.
