Why you should use Facebook for Business

If you have a business of any kind, chances are that you are constantly up for gaining new customers. New customers mean more business, and more business means that both you and your business will be doing well. You have probably tried to gain new business through various different efforts such as posters, flyers, refer a friend programs, and by offering sales and discounts. Unfortunately, these are worn out efforts. They do work, but you need to find a way to put a new, trendy twist on them that makes them much more effective. Facebook for business is a great way to grow your business.

Why Facebook is good for Business:

Think about it: Why wouldn’t Facebook be good for your business? Advertising locally where your business is and in close surrounding areas only gets to those individuals in those areas. Using the internet, especially an incredibly popular social network website like Facebook provides you with the opportunity to gain business from individuals from all over the world. You can advertise to anyone, anywhere.

Here are some of the ways Facebook is good for business:

•    Facebook is good for business because you can create a profile for your business which will work as an online billboard, an online store, and an online “refer a friend” program all in one simple profile

•    Signing up for a Facebook profile is absolutely free so you have absolutely nothing to lose, and the opportunity to gain a lot

•    You can update your status which can inform anyone who looks at your page about sales, discounts, new products, and other special deals that you may be offering

•    You can update your status when you have new services or features

•    You can upload pictures of your new products, items, or other pictures that have to do with your business

•    You can begin taking orders online, which expands your business. Your boundaries of growth and expanding are limitless

•    You can join groups, causes, add friends, send messages, and become a fan of things in order to get your profile out and about on the Facebook network.

The great thing about Facebook is that with every friend you add, you are opening the door to new friends, spreading the word, and gaining exposure.

This is because each friend you add has friends added on their Facebook.

Provide a status update that informs your friends that if they refer their Facebook friends to your profile or urge their friends to add your profile as a friend that you will provide them with a discount.

Facebook is huge already, and it is growing larger each and every day, why not let your business grow with it?

You have absolutely nothing to lose, and the ability to gain a lot.
