Wondering exactly how to get your Page started the right way?
Facebook continues to change and evolve, making it a moving target for people trying to find the correct steps to set up a Page. But never fear—we have all the critical pieces that you need to put in place to start your Facebook Page today.
To set up your Facebook Page, just follow these steps:
#1: Log into Facebook
If you do not have a personal profile set up on Facebook, do that first at www.facebook.com. Even if you don’t want a personal profile, we highly recommend that you create one rather than creating a “business-only” Facebook Page because of the limitations you will encounter (see point #8 for the Business-only Page limitations).
Is your blog suitable for a mobile device?
In 2012, mobile users spent 63% more time on their devices accessing mobile websites and apps and this is set to increase.
In this article I’ll explore the importance of mobile for your blog and the different options available to support your blog on a mobile device.
Is Mobile Important for Your Blog?
Yes! An increasing number of your readers will access your blog from their mobile devices. Smartphone usage will continue to increase and don’t be surprised if more people access your blog from a mobile device rather than a desktop in the future.
Have you integrated your blogging with your social activities?
Blogging can help you improve your social media marketing.
In this post, you’ll discover four tips to enhance your social media efforts using your business blog.
#1: Share Your Blog Posts in Your Social Status Updates
Not sure what to post on your Facebook wall or Twitter profile? How about links to your blog posts?
The rule of thumb is to have a 80/20 split with 80% of your updates not self-promotional and 20% self-promotional. If you use the 20% self-promotional updates to share links to your blog content, you’ll give your followers something more valuable to read than a product or service sales page.
Do you have a visual component as part of your social media marketing strategy?
Do you need some help in getting started or maintaining momentum in sharing more visual content and in creating a visual conversation with your audience?
In this post, you’ll find 26 tips, an A-Z guide, for getting started with a visual strategy.
#1: Add Text to Your Photos
Do you want to get more mileage out of the photos you share on your social sites? You can, when you add text to your images.
Adding text to a photo can help you get your message across faster. And these messages are more likely to be shared by others on social media.
Do you feel lost when you’re looking at your Facebook Page statistics?
Well, you’re not alone. Facebook metrics can be overwhelming and most Facebook Insights terminology is still hazy for many of us.
As a marketer, you know that what can be measured can be managed (and improved). So even if it seems complex, you need to measure your Facebook Page’s performance.
What statistics should you measure on your Facebook Page?
First you’ll want to focus on your Facebook post metrics. These are the only relevant indicators of the performance of your content. The other Facebook data can be misleading or gamed. But it’s very hard to trick individual post metrics.
Here are the six key metrics you need to track to understand your Facebook Page performance, why you need them and where to find them.
#1: Fan Reach
Fan reach simply corresponds to the number of fans of your Page who have seen any given post. This is “organic” reach, which means that it only records the views that occurred directly, and not through an action of a friend of a fan (such as a like, share or comment). The views that result from a friend’s actions are recorded in “viral” views.
Have you looked into SlideShare?
