3 Facebook Promotion Mistakes Small Business Make

Hi everyone.
Are you a small business and looking to use Facebook for promotion. Then guard against these 3 mistakes that most businesses make when using the Facebook platform.

1. Incomplete profile.
95% of businesses that I review show that people actually do not complete their Facebook page information. Facebook has so many sections and areas where you can provide your business information, services, address, phone numbers and a lot of things that you can really showcase your business with. But unfortunately, businesses overlook this aspect. They just fill up the important points like phone no. address and the rest is just left blank. Wow, that’s a big loss. You are losing so many dollars on the table.
It’s very important that every section/area that Facebook is providing you to give information about your business must be filled. Not just for the user but also for Facebook to map you with that business and show up in search results when people search via Facebook.

Another important aspect would be choosing the right template for business. Did you know that?
Most of us see the standard template that Facebook provides, but they have a facility where you can choose a template based on your business. For better look feel, & areas where customers can look up based on your business. So make sure you find out the right template for your business.

2. SEO Keywords Vs Social Tags
A lot many businesses make this big mistake.
They do a keyword search/research for Google, find out what keywords are trending and they use the same keywords to map in their Facebook posts. Is this going to work? No

Facebook search works differently from Google search. What people search in Google, they will not exactly search the same way in Facebook. Let’s clearly understand that.

Therefore for your social, for your Facebook posts you need to get into the insights you need to get into Facebook search to understand trending tags, what kind of searches people are doing there and create a different set of keywords or tags when using on social Facebook posts. Very important.
Do not make that mistake of using Google keywords as social posts. Please review your campaigns today.

3. Paid Marketing Is Completely Ignored
This is another myth a misnomer in the market, that Facebook paid marketing is absolute nonsense. It’s not the case, depending on the type of business you are and if you in the retail business, paid marketing can be really beneficial for you.
However, it needs to plan carefully, correctly and very clearly defined metrics that you want to measure and keep tweaking the campaigns. You will see the results. Invest in paid marketing on Facebook and you will really gain for your business.

So those were my three points or 3 mistakes most businesses make when using Facebook as their promotional platform. So my urge is clear to all of you sitting out there to take stock and realign your Facebook campaigns and use it effectively for your online business.
