Hey, Vendor! Congrats on creating and updating your Facebook Business Page! I hope you enjoyed the step-by-step guide videos. Here’s a few tips to keep in mind when you are working your Facebook Business Page:
- Keep everything short and sweet as much as possible
- People like photos and videos
- Post something relatable to your fans that’s also relevant to your business at least once a week
- “Sharing is Caring,” so you want them to care about your business!
- Always share Facebook events you’re actually attending to your business page
- Always invite people to the events you attend
- “Inviting is Important…” to your business!
- Have fun with your page!
- Don’t treat it like another job.
- Treat it like it’s a portal to your customers online!
Your Facebook Business Page should be helping you make money! If it isn’t, adjust what you are doing until you start seeing results. It’s the #1 traffic driver to your business website! Keep an eye on your page’s insights to help guide you!
This may seem like a lot of information, but it can all be broken down into small sections. Just block some time each day to work on a specific section. Don’t rush through it. Sometimes, it takes time to establish a business page and a following, but a well completed Facebook Business Page and consistency will payoff.
Good luck! I hope you enjoyed the Facebook Business Page Series of the Texas Trade Days, LLC Vendor Learning Series and I hope these videos serve you well.
