Okay, I have a question for my blog readers. How many of you know about businesses having Facebook pages? And do you think it is a good idea for a company to have a Facebook page? A Facebook page creation can be a wonderful thing but is it worth it? This is one I would love to hear from my readers on. I am going to give some pointers on why I think it is a great idea but chime in here! This will also apply to blog owners. So check it out:)
1.The Publicity and Reach.
Face it, social media is a big thing for businesses and companies today. It used to be word of mouth or talking to someone personally, but with the internet and all the changes it has brought, social media, such as Facebook and Twitter, really gives a business so much more reach. I don't know how many times I have searched for a restaurant or a shopping place and had to go to their Facebook page to get the details. You can check in online that you are at this place and all your friends will see this business.
2.Ease of Use.
Instead of going to the website of this business, you can do all your work from Facebook! I love how easy it is to login to my account and then check out a company nearby. Talk about nice:D Also, you can have several people who run it so all the updating and stuff it not put on one person. This makes it great for a small company.
3.Specials and Deals.
This is something I love about a Facebook page. Most of the companies I follow often post special deals for their Facebook fans. Sometimes they are something that will go out in an email message as well but there are times they are specials only available to their fans. Brands and companies cannot go wrong with having a page created on Facebook. Think of it this way. Instead of putting an ad in the local newspaper that your town sees, you are putting your company in front of thousands if not millions of people regularly!! They will see your specials, deals, announcements, etc. Believe me, I follow companies that I may never visit, but if I am in the area, I know they are there.
Readers, this is where I need your input. What do you think? Is it worth it? How many companies or brands do you follow on Facebook? Let me know in a comment below:)
