There are nearly a billion users on Facebook and billions of sales opportunities for your business to make money.
There are a number of benefits gained from using a Facebook page to promote your business online:
Easy setup: Quickly create your own essential Facebook page to represent your business online.
Reach a wider audience: Facebook is the biggest social network ever, so your page can market to nearly a billion people and perhaps even target a different user base.
Learn how to use it: Do some research and reading to get yourself up to speed on using Facebook for business.
Custom URL: Get a personalized Facebook URL for your page instead of the default one you are assigned. Claim it before someone else does.
Integrate with other social media: If you already use other social networks you can automatically share your updates from there or your blog.
Interact with real customers: Social media allows you to speak with actual people who are buying (or thinking of buying) your products to give you a real insight into what they think.
Network with local businesses: You can all work together to promote the business scene in your local area and try to help each other out.
Don’t be left out: A Facebook Page is now nearly as important as a website for your business. Facebook pages rank very highly in Google search results.
