Why You Should Market on Facebook?

Mark Zuckerberg , Facebook

Facebook is currently the biggest social media and networking platform on the planet with over 500 million users, of which over 50% of them are active daily.

Marketing is a numbers game and if you are not tapping into a market as big as this, your competition will leave you in the dust! Facebook is becoming so big that it recently overtook Google as the website that got the most traffic in a single day. This means that Facebook is becoming bigger than Google itself. How would you like a piece of that pie?

Facebook is also a great place to “soft sell” your products, because a lot of normal users don’t know that you can actually use Facebook as a marketing platform for your business. Not only that, but there is also a way to generate laser targeted visitors that some people don’t even know about.

Those of them that don’t know this is losing out big time. Do you want to be one of those people or do you want to leave your competition cleaning up behind you for a few scraps?

Another great reason for marketing with Facebook is that there are so many different ways to use this website to market your websites and products and many ways to turn these users into cash.

You can use profile updates, friend requests, groups, fan pages, events, social ads, the marketplace, pictures, videos and a lot more.

7 Tips to Get Viral Traffic from Facebook

By using Facebook effectively, you can easily start getting traffic virally if you know how to leverage this source of traffic. Here are 7 Tips to Getting Traffic with Facebook Viral Marketing.

1. Get More Friends

Friends are the most important aspect in social networking as they are needed to make money! The more friends you have, the more visibility your business will have, which ultimately leads to more sales for you.

2. Get a Blog

Blogs are a great way to spread the word about your business. You can incorporate your blog into your Facebook account and add RSS feeds for your readers to follow up on. You can also comment on other blogs linking back to your site.

3. Use Your Picture Wherever You Can

Uploading your picture can get you a lot more views to your articles/comments than those without pictures. Spammers never take the time to upload a picture. Also, people like having a face with a name and it makes them trust you a lot more.

4. Have a Great Profile Page

If you are a big social networker, you will have a pimped out profile page. Link all of your social network profiles and personal projects to gain maximum exposure. Promote your RSS feed from your blog on you profile page. Make it attractive with enough information to where it doesn’t look boring!

5. Use the Notes and Events Features

Sending notes and events are great ways at gaining more exposure in your business. If your friends like it they may even pass them on to their friends. It’s a win-win for everyone!

6. Create Good Content

Content is king. If you are a good writer in a popular niche then you will have no problem succeeding in social networking sites like Facebook. People like great content and they will take the time to read it if it peeks their interests. Try to write articles that include lists, like “Top 10…” or “7 Reasons Why…”

7. Give Away Free Stuff

Everyone loves free stuff and your social networking friends will really love you for it! Give them a free ebook, or maybe an article you found online. It doesn’t have to be big. Anything that is helpful and related to your niche will be greatly appreciated by your friends. These are just 7 of the many ways that you can capitalize on the social networking craze.

Hey Anton,

Nice looking blog you have going on here. It helps that you have Alicia’s smiling face commenting on it as well :)

Facebook IS a great place to network and market if done properly. You touched on soft selling which is great. I have found that what works even better on social media is NO SELLING. Seriously.

People are curious creatures by nature. As long as you have the information they are looking for, like a link to your blog or whatever in your info on your profile, people will click on it to see what it’s about.

All you have to do is be yourself. I mean if you are a blogger, people will know because you share your blog on your wall. It only makes sense.

I think people start to get into trouble ( and I am guilty as well) is when they do try to go into sales mode. It’s easy to do.

What I have learned in time is it usually stems from a scarcity mentality. Most marketers fail because they are attracting people who are not qualified to be in business in the first place.

If you do what you already do as well as you do it..people like you will find what you do and want to do it too! It’s really that simple.

They call them Facebook friends for a reason. You make friends. If your friends already want to buy something, of course they will buy it from you before a stranger.

So the question really comes down to Who are your friends?

I hope that we become friends someday Anton. :)
