Facebook Basics- What to Do From the Start

So, you’ve learned all about Facebook and you understand what a wonderful business opportunity it will be for you. You have set up your business page attached to your personal page and written a few posts- now what?

We have a few suggestions for you:

1- Set up a URL forward- this is something you can ask your web master to do for you if you don’t know how – basically it adds a folder to your root directory which contains an HTML file with your Facebook address in it, so you can tell people to find you on Facebook by starting at your web site, like this:
https://acorn-is.com/facebook

2-  Get your new Facebook URL on your business cards, rack cards, even if you have to print labels and put them om your published materials.

3- Start encouraging your guests to follow you on Facebook.  Put your new Facebook URL on your Email tagline too, so that you remind everyone of your FB page when you email them.

4- Make sure you have a button on your website with a link to your Facebook page.

5- If you Twitter- announce your page in a Tweet, as well as your blog- add a FB Like Box to your blog.

This will help you build a Facebook following. Remember that Facebook has over 500 Million users. Some of those millions of people are bound to be your guests and potential guests.

And of course, don’t forget to attend Acorn Internet Services Webinars to learn more about how Social Media can help you.
