The first phase is always the most challenging.
Your first job, your first business, your first launch, and your first foray into social media.
But persevere past the pitfalls, and you’ll soon be on your way to smoother sailing. One area where many small businesses face this challenge is with their Facebook account.
Getting your first 1,000 followers for your Facebook business page can seem an insurmountable feat, but we’re here to give you some helpful tips!
What is a Facebook business page, and what’s that got to do with me?
Unlike your personal Facebook page, a business page is where you engage your audience and show the world the best of your brand.
You’re probably the proud owner of a Facebook business page already, but if you’re not – it’s high time to create one!
It’s a valuable way to run ads and promote your services. Most importantly, it’s where potential customers go to find out more about your business.
People expect businesses to have a Facebook page, and not having one may be a huge blow to your credibility.
How do I go from 10 followers to 1,000?
Amassing followers is a long journey. Throughout that journey, however, you have to stay consistent with 2 things:
- Creating valuable content that engages with your followers. Create infographics, write informative posts, link to your website’s blog – create value for your followers.
- Creating that content consistently! Amassing followers is about patience and persistence. Don’t post weekly, make it a daily thing!
Great! You’ve hit 1,000 followers. Now what?
Numbers aren’t everything. Just as some customers aren’t worth your business, some followers aren’t either.
As always – quality triumphs quantity. Use your Facebook business page to build a community, not a following.
