Facebook is a social media website where people like to hang out. They share photos and videos, link to sites they like and chat amongst friends. They also have the ability to interact with companies and brands they like, or find new firms they want to buy from. Tap into this market with the advice below.

If you're having trouble gaining followers, you can offer a sweepstakes in return for their "Like". Just place the sweepstakes in a tab on your company's page and have them fill it out with their email address, specifying that only those who Like your page will be eligible for the contest.

When you market your business on Facebook, post professionally. Although social media is a place where people are quite relaxed, that doesn't mean you shouldn't be professional when representing a business. Folks will have more respect for what you do if your tone stays professional.

Creating a contest for your Facebook page is something that you can have some success with. Offer free products or discounts to subscribers when they join. Make your winners viewable to maintain the legitimacy of your contest.

Have a discount or a freebie on your Facebook page is a great way to increase followers. People love freebies. Offering a freebie or other discount will encourage your followers to share the offer. When people share your offer, you are exposing your business to additional customers that may not have heard of you.

Make regular posts on your Facebook page. Setting up a page, putting in multiple posts on the first day, and then ignoring the page for the next several months will do nothing to improve your business. Set up a schedule for posting that meets your business's purpose for the Facebook page, and stick to it.

Think through your updates before you post them. If your updates don't contain any valuable information, your subscribers will lose interest. Every piece of content you post should either be helpful, educational, or entertaining. Facebook Insights can show you what successful updates look like.

If you only deal with a customer every now and then, you don't need a Facebook page for your business. You have customers that come and go at random times so they probably won't follow your posts on Facebook. Instead, turn to Facebook targeted ads to reach new customers.

Make sure to answer every question or comment left on the wall. Respond to those who have taken the time to contact you. Consider the posts to be like phone calls; answer the questions that are asked of you.

Be sure your postings are valuable and relevant. Your fans follow you because they get something of value from your postings, whether it's a nod towards your best products or early-bird access to the latest sales. Don't be too much of a salesman, however, or people will get tired of your updates.

Marketing on Facebook is now an avenue which is open to your business. You know what it takes to engage an audience, supplying advertising to those you target. This knowledge is something your competition likely lacks, so act on it as soon as possible to get the most out of it.
