How do you go about this properly? We have a few tips to direct your SMM activity from the very beginning.
Activity is the first rule for promotion #promotion of your facebook brand page. Once you have created a page you must take care of it and do everything possible for the page to thrive. These activities include posting content regularly and keeping in mind that content should be interesting for people.
“Interesting” generally means posts that will just be entertaining, without any hint to advertising. Check the likes and reshares for your posts to see which type of info is more interesting, and from there plan out your content #content accordingly.
The other indicator for interest is commenting, so you should always look through all the comments. And even more importantly, never leave the comments without an answer—show people there are live human beings behind the brand.
The page should be visible. It doesn’t make sense to create a page that just sits there empty, so that no one knows about it. So, make sure you have a link to your Facebook brand page in an easily visible place. It’s even better to put an interactive Facebook widget on your page—you can take the code for it exactly from the Facebook developer’s place: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/
Also, it would be a nice trick to turn attention to your widget by means of your website design. For example, you can put some arrows showing the widget, and add some call-to-action slogans encouraging people to like the page and watch its content.
One more thing to do is to share a link on other social media sites. Facebook is like a global meeting place, so don’t be surprised if you get more Facebook fans from Twitter, YouTube, and other social media outlets.
We have mentioned talking with your Facebook page fans in the comments. However, this is just inbound communication. In order to promote the page, you need to concentrate on outbound communication. First of all, the admins of the page should add a lot of friends in Facebook, so they will be able to invite all these masses to like your page.
The other important thing is to be active in other Facebook pages, and to leave links to interesting and reliable content from your page. Private messaging and emailing with the link to your page will also work for promotion, however you must be careful not to post too much and risk being banned for spam.
