What sort of marketing are you interested in? When it comes to Facebook, you can really take a variety of avenues to reach out to customers and potential leads. You are only held back by your imagination and education, and this article should help you out with the latter, at least.

The key to all marketing is to understand why you're doing it. What is your end goal? Once you have that figured out, you can more easily create a plan to bring in exactly who you want to turn from Facebook like into customer. So, start brainstorming today - what are you marketing?

Before you begin to use Facebook for marketing, consider if you really have the time to pull it off. You'll need someone to post at least once per day, and then you'll need to include other features such as a Promotions tab or polls. Do you have the time, even though the only way to profit through a campaign such as this is with constantly updated content?

Create a custom tab for your Facebook page. You can use custom tabs as a welcome locale for all of your new Facebook visitors. It's a great place to promote your current offerings and products, and services. Plus, it'll give a little personality to your Facebook page which is always a plus.

Try having a contest to increase followers on your Facebook page. People love to have the chance to win something. Also increase your visibility when they share your contest, although if you offer incentives, like additional entries into the contest for sharing, then you will not only give your current followers something of value.

Facebook lets you share content. Facebook is for more than just idle conversation it is a primary channel for content. Treat it as such. Write some actual blog posts and then promote them via other channels through your Facebook page. You will see great results from using Facebook.

Never buy Facebook fans to make you look bigger than you are. It never turns out the way you want, though it may be tempting to throw down some cash to buy your way in to big fan numbers. Those hallow fans bring nothing to the table, and people who are in the business can see through this tactic in a heartbeat. It's never worth it.

Consider investing in Facebook Ads. You can pay a fee to have a certain number of targeted Facebook users see your ad. This is an excellent way to get more subscribers for your page. If you offer a discount to the new subscribers or organize a giveaway, you will get better results.

Use photos in every Facebook update that you do. People love looking at photos on Facebook. The more visual a post is, the better chance it has of actually becoming a bit viral. So, if your trying to get a post out quickly, don't let any opportunity to get visual pass you by, even. Take the time to make it visually great.

Always respond to comments as well as posts that are posted on your Facebook wall. This will show that you care about what they have to say. Answer Facebook inquiries as swiftly as you answer a telephone when it rings.

Organize some networking events on Facebook. You could for instance encourage your subscribers to post an ad, a link to their own website on your page or a picture of the last product they purchased. Choose a time when your subscribers are likely to be online, such as Saturday afternoons or a weeknight.

Become an authority in your field. Facebook is great for demonstrating your ability to be a niche leader. Seize all the opportunities available for commenting and answering questions that are related to your expertise. When you do so, you'll introduce yourself to lots of new people. This means more potential fans for your brand!

Make sure that you have complete contact information listed on your Facebook page. This means that you should have your address, phone number, business hours and any other relevant information. You should make sure to include an email address on the page in case someone wants to contact you off of Facebook.

Don't relay too much on automation. It can be very tempting to automate your Facebook posting. More posts are better, right? That's not always the case. People can sense an automated post, especially if all you post are links to stories from around the web. You won't be building any sort of engagement between your audience and your brand.

Do not hesitate to moderate the negative comments you receive on your Facebook page. Some customers will probably post complaints on your Facebook page. Try satisfying them by offering a free product or a refund but do not start an argument. You could develop a negative image for your brand if your customers see negative comments on your page.

Use videos whenever possible, especially if you have a new product to showcase. While a picture is great (and it is certainly better than nothing), a video is much more exciting and can give your followers more information than a picture and text alone can. Adding a video to your post is quite easy with Facebook's current format as well, so there really is no reason not to give it a try.

Now that you understand the why, how, when, what and where, or at least how to figure them out for yourself, you just need to supply the imagination to create an outstanding Facebook marketing campaign. Take the time necessary to do the job right the first time. When you do, your campaign should really take off.
