How to make Facebook networking work for you

Facebook’s popularity make it the perfect place for making money. Actually, when done right, Facebook marketing can boost your brand and increase your sales significantly. However, what businesses fail to understand is that at the core of marketing is networking. So in order to succeed, you need to build your marketing efforts around your community, their wants, needs and interests.

Today, we will share with you some networking tips to help support your marketing efforts. They are very simple and easy to follow. Here we go:

Networking tips for effective Facebook marketing:

  • Create an interesting Facebook profile

The more people like and trust you, the more they will want to hear about your business. This is why you need to create an appealing Facebook profile that reflects professionalism and credibility. Choose your profile picture wisely, use a cover photo that gives a snapshot of who you are and fill out About page fully.

  • Make your posts public

Many people create a great Facebook profile and end up posting privately. This makes it harder for people to know what you do and get them interested. Once you have created your profile and added a few friends, make sure to make your posts public. This will help you spread the word and get more exposure for your business.

  • Use Facebook messenger

Facebook messenger is similar to email, but even better! It helps you keep things a little casual while showing you all your previous conversations with someone in the same place. However, when reaching out to friends on messenger about your business, be subtle about it and make sure that you re-establish relationships with old friends before getting down to business.

  • Send out tailored messages

Don’t you find it annoying when you get a generic message from a friend about his/her business? It feels kind of intrusive and sometimes even irritating. To avoid this, make sure you customize your messages based on previous conversations as well as interests, background, etc.

  • Keep the conversation flowing

When someone shows interest in your business, make sure to follow up with them. Send them more information including pictures and details about your offerings without bombarding them. Moreover, if someone does not reply to your messages, be patient and give them time.

  • Interact on a regular basis

You want to post quality content regularly to get people to interact with you. However, you need to strike the right balance between business and personal as too much of either is not good for you or your business.

  • Create a Facebook group

If you are looking for a place to offer support and get the conversation flowing, create a Facebook Group. Moreover, make sure to regularly post to your groups and interact with your audience. Add likes, comments and share content that people will enjoy.

  • Take it offline

Facebook is an awesome tool to help your business grow. However, you can’t rely on Facebook alone to achieve your business goals. You need to give your customers a taste of your offerings and to do that, you should have face to face meetings, attend events and network offline as well.
