Common Facebook Mistakes and How to Avoid Them
Many people approach Facebook with a traditional mindset and consequently make many mistakes along the way...
...but Facebook is a new medium for communication & marketing and as such requires new methods...
...while doing Facebook consulting for health companies, landscapers, publishers and other businesses I encountered three common mistakes.
These three common mistakes are listed below and so are tips so that you can avoid them:
Common Facebook Marketing Mistake #1
=> Flooding the news stream with too many postsEven if you only have an hour a week for Facebook marketing you can line up all of your posts for the week.
Facebook pages now enable you to schedule posts from within Facebook by using the clock icon in the bottom left of the status update box.
Instead of posting as much as you can whenever you have time line your content up at the beginning of the week you can post your content at optimized times so your content hits the news feed when the most people are looking at it...
...some sure fire engagement tactics include:
Using the Tagging Feature
Common Facebook Marketing Mistake #2
=> Posting too many sales postsIf you want your fans to care about you and your business you have to first show that you care about them...
...If all of your messages are focused on selling your products and services without adding value for your community you will find that many of your fans will disappear forever...
Luckily if you do the opposite of this and are posting useful, cool and engaging updates not only will people stay they will participate in your page and this will help your page attract in new fans as their activity is broadcast through the social graph.
Common Facebook Marketing Mistake #3
> Not offering an incentive with a call to action for people to like your pageThe harsh truth us that if you don't offer an incentive for people to like your page and tell them to like it most people simply won't.
The reason many people do not enjoy a rapidly growing fan base is because they do not know how to set the custom app needed to set this up.
