Potential customers cannot find you on Facebook if you don’t have a profile or fan page. Even if you don’t host contests or giveaways on Facebook, just by having a Facebook profile and interacting with other members could bring in business.
Host an Event
Events are a great way to not only have fun but market your business to other members on Facebook. When a company hosts an event, friends will share that event with others and your company’s name will spread throughout Facebook.
Pictures are a great way to bring personality to your business’ Facebook page. When people are in the picture they can tag themselves and that picture will appear on their news feed which will allow other members to notice your business’ Facebook page.
Host a Giveaway or Contest
Everyone loves to get something for free. Try hosting a giveaway or contest on Facebook as a way to bring in new Facebook friends and get the word out t about your business. While some people might leave after the contest you will notice a vast majority will still follow and potentially use your business in the future.
