Here's the most important thing to know: Facebook is an advertising channel. It is no longer a social network. If you're a small business, you must understand that if you build a Facebook page with a 1000 people, you will only reach 7% of that audience when you post on your page. If you wish to reach more, you'll have to pay for it. All that being said, Facebook is an amazing advertising platform with highly customizable and targeted ads, which products results if you use them well. Facebook ads, combined with a well-maintained page, will work if you have the... (more)

People on Facebook will not engage with a Facebook page that is full of shared content. (ie... sharing a link from an article on a website) What people on Facebook want is to get to know you. I find that posting pictures of the business, people at work, success stories and things of that nature work best. You can sprinkle in a news article here and there but try to keep it personal.

Additionally, Facebook is a great way to build a strong online reputation. I suggest implement an online reputation management strategy that helps you get reviews and monitors... (more)
