Are you wondering whether you need Facebook or not to help your business marketing? This page should answer your question or at the very least point you in the right direction.
Word of mouth was always the best form of advertising, but it sued to be slow. The invention of the Internet saw word of mouth go global. People and their views are connected as they have never been connected before. There are also a great number of ways of letting people know your opinion, so instead of telling, a neighbour how one product is better than another, people post it on a website and hundreds know about it. That website is most frequently Facebook.
Do I need Facebook for Business?
The short answer is yes you do!
However, how much depends on the type of business you are. I’ll split this into two categories:
- Businesses whose customers buy occasionally with little repeat business in the short term e.g. estate agents, car sales, central heating installation, double glazing etc.
- Businesses that get frequent and lots of repeat business in the short term e.g. restaurants, bars, dentists, car servicing, florists, jewellers etc
Whilst both will benefit from mastering Facebook it is the second category that will gain the most.
