Facebook is the largest online community. It has millions of users worldwide. If you want to reach potential customers it is one of the best avenues to use.

There are several factors that you should consider if you want to promote business on Facebook. First of all, you should know why you are joining it. This will determine how you will use it.

Registering a free account is easy. You simply have to provide your name and email address. Having a personal page is not necessary but it can help you get through to people you know.

The next step is to create a page for your business. It involves filling out the required information in the fields provided. It includes identifying yourself by the sector, brand, product or the name of the business. The use of Keywords is important because it will help people get to your page. It may also help your fan page to get listed in search engine results.

The profile of your company should clearly outline what the business is about. Other things including a link to your website, overview of your company, and a product and service description are also equally as important. They should not be overlooked.
Always use every asset at your disposal to drive people to your fan page. Other social networks such as Twitter are good places to post links to your Facebook page. The fan page details should not be left out of your site and other marketing literature.
Your page should be a hub of engaging information. Update it regularly and make sure that the content is relevant to your business and reflects the brand. If people find the material to be helpful they will become regular visitors and they will suggest your page to their friends.

Responding to questions and encouraging discussions is a good way to keep the page active. A page is effective in word of mouth marketing because people will be able to see what visitors post. You can also opt to comment on the business fan pages run by other people too.

Last but not least, keep in mind the difference between the engagement of a photo over text. Using photos in place of the “Old School” text status updates can raise your reach for engagement beyond belief!

The points above are key aspects that should be focused on. They will make your strategy to promote business on Facebook successful. Facebook offers an easy way to generate traffic which will in the long run help you to achieve your objective.
