Top tips for marketing online and upcoming social media training events.

June 30, 2012

Welcome to the Q Social Media June Newsletter, top tips for marketing online and upcoming social media training events.

Top Tips:1) Facebook Ads – following last month’s top tip we do recommend if serious about using Facebook for business that you run a Facebook Ad campaign to grow your fan base and in turn your reach within Facebook. Out of the three key tools it is the hardest one to grow a following too and really you have to market the Page for people to know about it and in turn for some of them to like it. The most effective way to do this is to run a targeted ad campaign within Facebook by location, age groups, keywords, interests etc. Like Google Ads it is pay per click so you only pay when someone clicks on the ad and you can set a daily budget to control spend.2) Keep Posting Content – if running an ad campaign keep posting interesting relevant content that your customer base would find useful to know – 2 to 3 times a week. Otherwise we have seen drop off in conversions from click-throughs to Facebook Pages (from an ad) to people liking the Page, making the ad campaign less effective. However don’t over bombard your Facebook Page with too many posts as remember most people on Facebook are using it to primarily keep in touch with friends and family, so they won’t like being overbombarded. For this reason we don’t recommend automating all Twitter posts going to Facebook.

    more than just your articles? I mean, what you say
