Did you know that you could possibly double, triple, and even quadruple your traffic and sales and even control the Facebook marketing scene. Most people think that Facebook social ads are the only way to take advantage of their marketing, and with these ads, you pay per click, or per 1000 impressions. With the majority of users spending at least 30 minutes or more a day interacting with their friends on a social network, Facebook is now the largest photo sharing site around the world. Laura Roeder at LKR Social Media says,
You can’t use Facebook for your business the same way you use it for your personal life – you need a clear social strategy in place before you’ll see results. This isn’t hard to do, and can easily be achieved in 10 minute sessions a few times per week.
The Wonders of Facebook
It used to be that Facebook was meant only for college students to share photos and profiles, and was only available to those students with an.edu email address. But now, it has increased in popularity so much that it is a worldwide social networking site made available to anyone with a valid email address of any kind. This means that you can join the largest social media website in the world no matter who you are, or if you are in school or not, so long as you have that email address.
Most recently, Facebook launched its Spanish translation version, meaning many more people will be able to join Facebook, and this is especially true for Latin-speaking countries. Over 60 percent of Facebook users live in places outside the US where English is not the primary language.
As an internet marketer looking for the next internet revolution, you really must take a look and consider Facebook as a viable marketing strategy. With this, you will be able to drive massive quantities of no cost traffic to your site, generating interest for your site for free. Statistics have shown that Facebook has quite a bit of staying power, and will be a huge part of most American’s everyday life for the foreseeable future.
Savvy Internet Users
Facebook currently has over 42 million smart, affluent, internet-savvy users, and marketers are now taking advantage of this. Users are able to comment on your brand or product without you being able to do anything to stop them, and more recently, Facebook has opened itself to third-party developers, who create apps that can be displayed on the profile and pages of members. Also, they added continuously improving ad analytics, and are now able to provide the marketing tools needed to market your products and services more effectively.
As a marketing tool, Facebook is here to stay. Many people give up as they don’t get the desired result immediately, i.e. a huge increase in sales. However, consider marketing on Facebook as a step by step process: you first build trust, traffic and eventually – sales.
With tools like blogs, application, and the ability to create groups, you can more easily attract the traffic you need to your profile page, and send them to your business’ website. If you look, you can see that this social media site already has the numbers you need, they just need to be directed towards your business. Since Facebook is now self-sufficient, there is no need to generate any more traffic, and it has most every tool you need to market successfully. The business is there, all you need is the right marketing strategy, and a little time on Facebook.
