Welcome to the world of Facebook marketing!

Welcome to the world of Facebook marketing! As a business owner, you know the importance of promoting your brand and reaching out to potential customers. One of the best ways to do that is through social media, and Facebook is a platform that should be at the top of your list.

Let me start by sharing a personal story. A few years ago, I was running a small photography business and I noticed that, for some reason, I had some extra time on my hands. For years, word of mouth was the only marketing I ever used and I never had to put much effort into it. The photos just spoke for themselves. But at this point, I had really honed my skills. My edits were not taking up as much time and neither were the appointments. So I decided it was time to grow. I tried traditional advertising methods, at first, but they were expensive and not very effective. One day, I decided to give Facebook a shot, and it turned out to be one of the best decisions I ever made.

Using Facebook to market my business allowed me to connect with my audience on a personal level. I was able to share photos of my actual clients, as well as behind-the-scenes glimpses of what my photography process looked like. I shared tips and tricks, like how to capture your child's attention, and poses that flatter your figure. My "mom" audience ate it up! Pretty soon I was booked up and had to schedule about 2 months in advance.

Through my Facebook page, I was able to build a community of loyal customers who were not only interested in my services but also valued the content I shared. They would share my posts with their friends and family, which helped spread the word about my business even further. I am a firm believer that the highest compliment you can receive, as a business owner, is a referral.

Before Facebook, I never gave much thought to my brand voice. I had a logo, some business cards, and a website. As growth became more important to me, I had to expand on that. It is essential to have a clear brand voice and tone. This voice should align with your business goals and values. For example, if you are running a high-end fashion brand, your tone may be polished and sophisticated. If you are running a vegan café, your tone may be empathetic and informative. Jeremy and I have also written a few blogs that might help define this for your business. If you haven't already, you can read these for reference:


Another essential is to keep your content fresh and engaging. Share posts that are not just about promoting your products or services but are also informative, entertaining, or useful to your audience. Keeping content fresh and engaging on social media is important to maintain the interest of your audience and to attract new followers. Here are some tips to help you achieve this:

Diversify your content: Try to mix up the type of content you post on social media, including images, videos, live streams, blog posts, infographics, and more. Varying the format of your content can keep things interesting for your audience and attract different types of users.

Use storytelling: People love stories, so use your social media accounts to share your brand's story or the stories of your customers. You can use photos, videos, or written posts to tell engaging and emotional stories that connect with your audience.

Be relevant: Stay on top of industry news and trending topics to keep your content fresh and timely. You can also use social media listening tools to see what people are talking about in your industry or related topics and create content that adds value to those conversations.

Use humor: People love to laugh, and humor can be a great way to engage your audience. Use memes, funny images, or witty captions to inject humor into your posts.

Collaborate with others: Collaborating with other brands or influencers can be a great way to keep your content fresh and reach a new audience. You can team up for a joint promotion or create co-branded content that appeals to both of your audiences.

Remember that social media is a constantly evolving platform, so it's important to stay up-to-date with the latest trends and experiment with different types of content to find what works best for your brand and audience. And don't forget to engage back! Respond to comments and messages in a timely manner and be open to feedback. Ask them questions or encourage them to share their opinions. This will help to create a sense of community and encourage user-generated content. Your audience will appreciate your transparency and willingness to listen to them.
