Have you thought about having a Facebook business page but decided it’s too hard?

I have a Facebook business page for RGDESIGN and I Don’t Do Ugly! I started these pages a few years ago when ‘everyone’ was saying your business needed to be active on social media …

I have been VERY inconsistent with posting and keeping the pages updated. Jumping on the business Facebook page was something I did when I remembered or had the time. But lately I’ve been making an effort to keep the I Don’t Do Ugly! page current.

Why?

One of my main goals this year is to communicate regularly with my customers and Facebook makes it easy to get in front of the people who are interested in what I do and what I have to offer.

Should you have a Facebook page for your business?

YES – if your target market is active on Facebook.
YES – if you want to grow your audience without spending a fortune.
YES – if you want to be in front of your customers on a regular basis.
YES – if you have exciting things happening in your business.
YES – if your competitors have one.
NO – if you honestly don’t have a spare 5 minutes a day!

I’m sure you’re thinking that creating a Facebook page for your business is hard work. It’s not! You’ll need to create a personal Facebook account, if you don’t have one already, and simply follow the setup process which will take a minute or so. I reckon the challenge is committing to it and making it an important part of your marketing plan!

Setup Facebook for Business

Once you setup your Facebook business page, make sure you add a profile picture, perhaps your business logo, and a relevant cover image. Then start posting and building your audience!

If you need help, I can set up a page for you and I can also help with creating a cover image if you’re not sure what to use. Just flick me an email :)

Until next time, take care!
