Set up a professional page
If you’re using Facebook to market your business, you need to start by setting up a professional page. On this page, be sure to include all of the relevant information your customers will want to see about your business, including opening hours and location.
Bring your page to life with high quality profile and cover photos. Leverage your existing assets so that your page is on brand.
Have a strong call to action
When they arrive at your page, what do you want your prospects to do? Do you want them to click the Like button and follow your daily Facebook posts? Is the goal for them to visit your website? Or do you want them to contact your directly?
Whatever action you want them to take, you need to integrate this into your main call to action button on your Facebook page.
Post quality, relevant content
Be sure to post content that is both relevant and interesting on your Facebook page on a regular basis. This content shouldn’t just be sales focused, but also engaging too. Think about what will add value for your customers and focus on posting content around that.
