Social media is as much a marketing landscape today as a traditional one. And among all, Facebook is still one platform that gives businesses the traction and lead they deserve. After all, it is home to more than 2 billion monthly active users across the globe and Facebook marketing for businesses is one of the most viable digital marketing options today. Whether it is about setting up a new page for your up and coming business or you want to revamp an existing one, it’s a great initiative.
However, no matter how simple it might seem, setting up a Facebook business page requires a detailed strategy that covers all the possible aspects needed for maximum retention and engagement. This is because not having a comprehensive strategy for your business’s Facebook page reduces the probability of lead generation and customer engagement.
Here are a few useful tips to make your business Facebook page the best it can be.
Tip – 1: Don’t Ignore the Significance of Filling out the Basic Information
When creating a Facebook page, it asks for the basic information categorically for ‘business’ and ‘personal’ pages. After that, you can enter basic information such as the name of the page, category of the business (industry), address and contact information. Here, you have to keep in mind that you will not be able to change the page name later, so you’ll have to be careful about it. In addition, fill in all the details cautiously in one go as changing basic details too often also negatively impacts the customers.
Tip – 2: Add a Catchy Profile and Cover Photo
The profile photo cannot exceed the resolution of 170 px X 170 px with square dimensions. Similarly, the cover photo has to be in the landscape dimensions with the best resolution of 820 px X 462 px. Here, you have to be quite aware that the images you are using must be in-line with your industry, business and of course, the content that you are going to post on a regular basis. In addition, never ever post a cover or profile photo of your business’s founder, CEO as it is often considered unprofessional among clients.
Tip – 3: Don’t Miss Out on Page Details
As soon as you’ve completed the previously-mentioned steps, Facebook will pop-up a few tips to help you complete your overall page set up. However, you can also go to the ‘settings’ and choose and fill fields such as Description, Category, Contact Information, Location, Hours (time frame when you/page admin is available for interaction), and more (in-case you want to specify the price range, products/services description, other information, etc.). All these details will be displayed on your ‘about’ page and therefore, you’ve got to be entering information that is precise and extremely relevant.
Also, do not forget to add a username to your page as it will automatically create a separate, unique URL that you can share with your clients and customers. And not to forget the ‘add a button’ option as it allows you to add a custom CTA that your clients and customers can use to send messages or even make phone calls.
Tip – 4: Add a Personal Touch
This is one of the critical steps as customising your Facebook page with all the possible UX, UI elements will help a visitor better engage with your marketing goal and message. You can use different free and/or paid templates that will add a certain look and feel to the page. It will convey the type of products and/or services and services to the visitors and will also make your brand stand out from the competition. Here, the key is not to add the best design or images to your template; instead, it should be about making it more user-friendly and in-line with the overall marketing strategy.
Developing a smart Facebook marketing strategy and implementing it is one thing and they being successful is another. Therefore, marketers need to regularly monitor and adapt their strategy so that they can measure its proficiency and make changes accordingly.
