@joancrocker – excellent advice about posting on walls. If you provide value and good insights without spamming, people will appreciate the feedback and definintely will check you out.
I have success just asking! If people don’t know you or your business, they don’t know to check out your fb page to see if you offer content, ideas, or solutions that they can use to benefit themselves. When they are benefited, they will tell others.
I see Facebook as being similar to a live networking event. You have to get yourself out there, demonstrate you care about your audience, and then ask them to participate with you. If you try to sell, they won’t follow. People don’t want to be sold, they want to buy.
I have also learned FB is the hardest to gain traction on, in my opinion, due to its relational nature. You just have to be patient, ask, and provide good content.
@christinamarie7- Excellent ideas. Thanks for sharing!!
