Facebook Page Management Services

There is a number of ways to market on Facebook, some services are based on building a brand , and some and strictly based on ad campaigns.

Each service will achieve different goals based on how you are trying to grow your business.

Many people try to do the Facebook Ads themselves and just end up wasting a lot of money because they are not selecting the right audience to target.

Most of the ad formats out there are just a picture that says “buy now” not knowing that you actually have to be targeting the right customers for them to buy.

If it was as easy as that, every business that decided to run an ad would be a billionaire!

The majority of Facebook ad companies just like to show your Ads based on impressions, now, that might sound good but if people aren’t calling you then it’s kind of pointless.

Facebook’s ad system is designed to manage ads and distribute content to its users. That’s how they make so much money is through advertisers.

Starting out you can get Facebook Blueprint certified which is a Facebook course you can take online that teaches you how to use the entire ad system.

After you are familiar with the types of objectives and audiences you can choose from then you can begin to create your first campaign. You can also set a budget on how much money you want to spend per day or lifetime for that campaign.

The first phase of the campaign needs to be identifying your audience segment . But what does that really mean?

IF you have been in business any length of time (the longer the better) you probably have some kind of existing customer list right?

Well the bigger the list the better because you can use the Facebook learning algorithm a few different ways to your advantage and to match you with the most relevant customers that fit your ideal profile.

That would be one of the first ways you could start off using audience insights to target the most likely to buy customers.

Here is an overview of the way you would do that if you don’t have a advertising package with a company that does this for you already.

First of all you need to have a Business Facebook Page, and if you don’t you can give us a call we can help you create one.

This is probably one of the most critical things that you need to do right.

Choosing the right people to market to could either but super successful or you could spend lot of time and money on nothing. We recommend starting from the customers you already have like we mentioned above.

You are able to load your customer list, with emails and phone numbers, and Facebook will go out and create what’s called a “look alike audience” this means the audience will be very similar to the people you already work with.

facebook placements

Facebook’s system has a vast reach across all channels, consider who is your actual customer and what type of product you sell.

If you sell something that if more visual, you probably want to be geared more towards creating more Instagram content since most people on there are visual.

But if your product is more informational based you want to be on Facebook most of the time.

4) How much money you want to spend:

One of the great things about the Facebook system is that you can choose your own budget. You can spend as little as five dollars a day and all the way up to infinity.

Once you have found which ads your audience is engaging with its time to measure how effective they are. For this you need to have your Facebook Pixel setup on your website or the landing page you are using for your conversion tracking.

Growing Your Facebook Page Organically

There are several types of Business Pages that someone can start off with, if you are a new brand with zero followers and just created your page, and two, the business or brand that has had a business page for the last few years but just hasn’t really utilized it very much.

Everyone has to start from somewhere. Getting started on Facebook is pretty easy. Just create a Facebook Page for free, optimize it a little and you’re off to the races.

Not so fast, now you need to get people to like your page so you can start to grow your audience.

Most people already have a few hundred friend on their personal Facebook profile page, those people can leveraged to grow your page in the beginning.

The way you can do this is, to navigate to your business page’s main area and click on the “Invite Friends” button. We recommend inviting everyone on your friends list and seeing who likes your page. If you have close friendly and family on there, they are sure to like your page.

growing a social media account

Random people and acquaintances might not like your page right way, but let’s say that out of 300 friends you get around 65 people to like the newly created page.

At this point you have 65 people that can potentially see your content.

So what’s next? Well, you now have to put out content and information that they will find informative and engaging.

When your followers “likes” engage with your business page or content post, Facebook’s algorithm works in such a way that it could show your content to new and relevant people.

Kind of like when you see a random cat video that your friend was tagged in or commented on.

how to boost a post in facebook
