Facebook is a social networking site that has quickly become one of the most popular sites on the Internet. The main reason why many online marketers have jumped on board the Facebook bandwagon is because it provides an ideal customer base for making business connections. Marketers have been able to use this as a means of marketing their products, and there is no better platform for doing so than Facebook. It’s also a great way of meeting up with friends and interacting with them. As such, it’s very important for companies to understand how they can make Facebook followers to buy products they’re promoting.
There are three ways that many online entrepreneurs have found effective in terms of Facebook marketing. The first is by focusing all of their efforts on the social media networking site. The second is by using social media platforms as a way of marketing other things aside from just selling products. Finally, many business owners have found success by using Facebook as a source of promotion for their offline marketing efforts. Let’s take a look at these three methods in more detail.
The first strategy used by many online business owners is to create a Facebook page that is focused solely on their product or service. The page should include everything about the business, its history, products, and any special offers it is running. The idea is to get as much information out there about the company as possible in hopes of attracting as many people as possible. Of course, the more information you have out there the higher the chances are of people buying from you, but this strategy tends to work best for products that are already popular.
The second strategy is much the same as the first, but instead of focusing on Facebook we look at eBay. eBay is another huge social media networking site that tends to attract a lot of attention from buyers and sellers alike. The key is to find a soap that is related to eBay, or something that is similar in some way. For example, My Soap From eBay is a customized shaving soap that sells for around 25% off the standard eBay price. This is part of a marketing campaign that originally began as a free offering on the eBay website, but has now moved into a profitable venture.
Finally, part of my strategy for getting Facebook followers to buy from me is to send out small business post on my Facebook page. These posts generally only contain links to affiliate products I am promoting, but sometimes I will throw in a few words about my own products as well. The goal is not to sell anything on the page itself, but rather to encourage people to check out my website for more information. For example, one of my small business post contained a link to an ebook about how to start your own virtual store on Facebook. People can click through to my website, purchase the book, and I receive a commission for bringing them to the site through my affiliate link.
So, what about those of you who aren’t social media-savvy but still want to promote your products? Don’t worry, there are other ways to get people to trust you enough to purchase from you. Consider hiring a social media consultant or similar professional to help you with your marketing efforts. They have many skills that I don’t have access to and can help you make the best use of social media marketing by turning your Facebook followers into regular customers. Just think, next time you put out a press release or blog entry for your small business, you might consider turning that post into a Facebook post instead!
