I help do online marketing for a local plumber. He is asking about how he can use Facebook to promote his business. I am NOT a Facebook expert, which is why I am looking to others for some ideas.
A couple of ideas I did have were-
1. To appeal to his current customer base to get them connected, liking his FB page, perhaps with some sort of incentive (25% off your next service) 2. Get his current customers to offer a testimony. 3. Offer a contest or some incentive to participate. 4. Regularly post new comments/testimonies from satisfied customers 5. Announce specials
As you can see, those are pretty half-baked. What ideas can you suggest to help a business that wouldn’t naturally have followers (seriously, why would you follow a plumber, or a roofer?).
