Deciding on the right Friends
Soon after building a profile or fan page for your company, find other fan pages or groups and add friends from your community. Go ahead and find and add a minimum of 20 friends a day every day. If you receive a warning from Facebook, then stop for the day.
Share data with friends by using "like" buttons and wall comments
Once you have added a few friends and see their writing on your home page or news feed, start communicating with them by liking and commenting on their updates. Commenting on updates could possibly have a viral effect but consistently remain professional and do not use a sales pitch. When you comment on an update, your comment will show up on the updater's wall and can be listed to all their friends. So, it pays to make smart comments and get potential customers back to your page, or site/blog. In addition, feel free to share quotes, posts, and videos that previously had a beneficial influence on you.
Facebook Photo Albums
Feel free to share your pictures and videos with your friends on Facebook. Many people would really like to know more about you through pictures and videos that showcase your small business. If you have been to a networking event and have taken pictures with the leaders and fellow networkers, share those pictures with stories about the events and watch the traffic to your website improve. Another great option is to put up testimonials, specials, coupons, or contests. Giving a little back to social network communities will return huge rewards.
If a picture is worth thousand words, how much is a video worth? In 2009, video marketing began growing rapidly and is not going anywhere soon. Facebook will allow you to either upload videos or shoot a video instantly with a web cam. The more you share the videos, the better it is. We assist companies produce and share videos that produce incredible results on Youtube and Facebook. One thing to always always remember is that simple is better.
1. Introduce your business to recently added friends. A short video explaining who you are and how you appreciate their friendship.
2. Use the instant Facebook video recording option to wish happy birthdays to friends or be creative in your own way.
Facebook Wall posts
Evey user in Facebook has a wall where he or she posts messages and moderate the comments made by others. If you are a core Facebook user, then you are posting and promoting your content on your wall. However, it is worth much more to learn to be effective and creative when posting on someone's wall. This can be done by providing plenty of value that could be beneficial to the users visiting the page or profile. Facebook will disable your account if they see you spamming too much, so be careful.
