How To Use Facebook Marketing Effectively | AIA Book in a free 30 minute strategy session

There are millions of people and businesses on Facebook. Being visible presents a significant challenge, but it doesn’t have to be imposing if you masterfully utilise the tools that are available for your business or brand.

Facebook has 1.9 billion users every day and without a Call to Action button, your business will get lost in the crowd! To effectively promote yourself as an entrepreneur or small-time consumer product/service provider on this social media giant you need to create ads that elicit strong emotions from consumers when they click through – such as anger at prices too high for what is offered – e.g. “We Never Sell Out”

What’s the best way to keep your audience engaged? Regularly posting relevant content! That is what we recommend as a cornerstone for any excellent advertising campaign. Having contact information displayed prominently on Facebook encourages users who are interested in contacting you through their preferred platform, so make sure it’s easy enough by adding links or showcasing products directly from within these posts themselves-the key here is that they should be able to glance at something without having too many distractions bogging download times just before opening pages elsewhere online where people may find distraction instead of connection.

Current Client Redirection

Your current website is an excellent navigational tool serving many purposes:

● Storefront
● Purchasing Hub
● Blog Posts
● Traffic direction
● Showcasing products or services

The free advertising that comes from word of mouth is one way your business can gain new customers. Placing a Facebook icon on the page will encourage people who view it and follow you there, giving them an opportunity for more information about what’s going in their favorite establishment.

The more time people spend on Facebook, the better. It’s a place where your business can grow by engaging with followers and getting testimonials from them that give you credibility while shared posts provide visibility for their favorite brands to come in contact – all via social media.

Send out an email blast to your current clientele announcing that you are on Facebook and the useful information that you will be posting there. In your email signature, make sure to include a hyperlink to your Facebook page as well as any other social media platform that you are on.

Brand Awareness With Facebook Groups

Now that you have engaged your client, it doesn’t stop there. Facebook Groups are ideal for brand awareness on a social media platform and can be used by joining groups within the niche or industry of which they belong in order to find other like-minded individuals with similar interests. Joining competitors’ fan pages may also provide opportunities where users discuss products/services offered against their competition’s presence online – this could lead them towards new leads who might become customers.

It’s always better to be social and interactive with your customers, not just because it will make them happy but also for the sake of building relationships. You never know who could become someone important in future business partnerships or referrals.

Keeping up with the latest trends in your niche is essential for staying relevant and current. Group blogging can help you identify with, as well as find new audiences that may not have known they were interested before.

Facebook Insights

Since you’re hosting the party, it’s time to review what kind of engagements are benefiting your business. Facebook Insights tracks user engagement and behaviour on their platform; we can help understand how our page is performing by using this information. Using Facebook Insights will show you:

● Best time of day that users will see your post
● The number of active users you have
● Best day of the week to post
● What type of content is popular at the moment
● Number of likes
● Number of friends of fans
● Your weekly reach

The robust tool that is Facebook Insights has a lot of information for you to take advantage of. It will show the virality and success rate on your posts so as long as they’re successful, then this provides valuable data about what kind of campaign might work best.

Facebook Content Creation

Your business has leveled up to Mr./Mrs. Congeniality. You have set the platform to engage with your audience daily. Now it is time to post the relevant content that will be promoting your products or services.

● Facebook news feeds are like an extension of your target audience. As they appear in this section, it’s likely that qualified leads will be generated and you can extract valuable targeting information to hone in on the right client group for yourself.

● A blog post can be the key to success for your company. It’s an essential part of providing relevant information and educating people on why you need their services or products with stories that will guide them into purchasing what it is they’re looking for, all through a narrative-driven writing style.

It’s important to stay in tune with your audience by monitoring what they’re asking about and expanding on the information that needs more explanation. This will help you provide relevant content, which is crucial for building trust among potential customers.

● Facebook ads are a cost-effective, budget-friendly way to grow your small business. Utilising Facebook Insights will help you maximise the value of your advertising dollars. There are several different types of ads depending on the area that you want to focus on:

○ Page Likes
○ Events
○ Web conversions & clicks
○ Page Engagement
○ App Installs & Engagement
○ Offers

When analysing the information you have gathered, you can target your desired audience and demographic. If you want more in-depth information, Google Analytics integrates nicely to provide you with user behaviour and engagements.

Attaching a picture can make for a much more engaging ad. The images should evoke emotions and move your audience to take the desired action!

Facebook Marketplace

Facebook is an essential tool for businesses, which can use it to reach their target audience and sell products or services through the platform’s marketplace. There are over 800 million users on Facebook Marketplace – so if you want your goods seen by as many people as possible then this might be just what you’re looking for.

Facebook Marketplace is a great way to get more clients and connect with people who might need what you offer. You can also monetise services or create products within the scope of marketplace searches, which helps buyers find exactly what they’re looking for at an affordable price.

The Final Word

To be successful on Facebook, you need to know your target audience. This means gathering information and using it effectively in order for people who are interested enough about what products or services they can offer through social media channels will find out about them.

The more times you interact with your audience, the better. Staying relevant is an ongoing process that never ends.

The more you know about your audience, the better ads will be catered to their needs. This means that it’s important for advertisers and marketers alike not only to monitor but understand what type of people are watching TV or browsing websites so they can produce targeted messages with a strong emotional appeal which is a sure-fire way to garner attention from consumers.

You know when you have that “AHA!” moment? That’s the best feeling in business. I would say it takes at least six months for beginners to understand how people are motivated and what they want, but once someone figures out their target audience- nothing can stop them.
