Tuesday Tip: A Facebook Gamechanger

So I've mentioned in several posts that of all the social media platforms out there, Twitter is by far my favorite.  (You follow me right?  Click here if you don't.)

Facebook is a completely different animal to me because I think the way that people use it is different.  You may be gaming, uploading pictures, checking in on Auntie Betty, or chatting with your friends in the chatroom.  With all of these different things vying for people's attention, businesses interested in using Facebook to connect with their customers have to bring something new to the table.

My friend Tommy Walker announced a gamechanger last week that will have your mind swirling with possibilities.  The net net is that with just a few steps anyone can create an interactive buying experience using people's newsfeeds.  It's amazing, and so simple- all you need is some basic powerpoint skills and time.

Check out Tommy's presentation, and let me know what you think in the comments below.  Is this something that you could use in your business?

I Want to Use Facebook- Now What?

In talking with business owners about different social media tools, Facebook is the one that quickly bubbles to the top of their "need to know" list.  People want to how to use it and use it effectively.  The last thing you want is to have a potential customer stumble onto your Facebook page only to find the last post was 6 months ago, and you only have 10 fans.

Your Facebook page is a place to engage your customers in fun, fresh ways.  Be it running a contest or getting feedback on your latest product launch, it should be the place where you are actively exchanging ideas and content with your fans.

The best thing about Facebook pages is that it is relatively simply to get up and running on your own.  Check out this post on Squidoo for a comprehensive tutorial on everything you needed to know to set up your page and get started  (and it has screenshots for those of you who like to have the visual backup too).

Happy Facebooking!
