In the dawning of this digital day, do you need a Social Media Mentor to keep you on track? Do you know when to Tweet, Pin, Follow, Like, Post, Unfollow, Poke (please don’t!), Vine or Yelp!? Do you know the difference between a page and a profile or a post and a thread? Do you know which social media platforms are the right target market for you and your business? YIKES!
Social Media doesn’t have to be confusing or complicated. As a matter of fact it can be fun, informative and the biggest business builder available to you today! Learning a few simple things will help you make the right choice of where to spend your time, how it will make the most impact and how you can convert that into making more money right now!
If you need clarity and direction as well as a new found confidence that will impress your friends, keep you out of “Facebook Jail” and turn your persistence into profits then you have come to the right place!
The most widely used social media platform currently is Facebook with over 1.5 BILLION active users per month! No one can argue with that kind of traffic so we will start there and during my FREE SOCIAL MEDIA WEBINAR we will add in a free side of graphic design to make you a Social Media Superstar!
FACEBOOK – Pages, Profiles & Groups… Oh my
If you know the difference between these, that is great but don’t make fun of the entrepreneur next to you who has no idea because hey… they have been busy building their business and are now ready for an easier way!
FACEBOOK PROFILE – a Personal Profile is your own Personal “Page”. It is where you share your personal updates – not too personal! There is a such thing as TMI (if you don’t know what that means PM (private message) me and I will send you a handy glossary to help you keep in touch with terms that may baffle you LOL J)
You have a choice when making posts for them to be:
- PUBLIC – anyone who is following you can see
- FRIENDS – which can be all of your friends or you can even narrow that more with a sub category you set up (i.e. Family, Close Friends, XYZ High School, etc.)
FACEBOOK PAGE – This can be used for a business or a public figure page so you can let an unlimited number of people “follow you” which means you can share information with the public without posting things about your private life that you want to leave for your Profile page. You are only allowed 5,000 friends and this a way that you can continue letting people in on a limited scale and still have fun sharing your life with those you truly know. I recently started a Vicki Fitch – Public Figure page to help me share the information that was the most helpful to them and would love for you to like it if you think Training on Social Media, Sales, Recruiting & anything entrepreneurial will be helpful! Let’s stay connected!
FACEBOOK GROUP – This is a certain group of people with a particular interest or commonality. For example I have an awesome Facebook group the Entrepreneurial Rock Stars that shares, networks and helps each other build their businesses! We post information specific to entrepreneurs, social media and a myriad of topics that are designed to help each of the members connect with each other and enhance their current business. If you are an entrepreneur that is interested in providing valuable content to the other Rock Stars, click the link and let us help you #rockthatdream (that is a hashtag that we will discuss on a later post!)
Here are some frequently asked Facebook Questions:
Q. I just started my business, should I create a FB Profile or a Page?
A. Start with a Personal Profile (you have to in order to create a Page) and YES create a Page! We will go into more about why in later posts. If you don’t know how, I have a video series with step by step instructions that will be available soon!
Q. I don’t have many likes on my Page, should I keep it or just go back to using my Profile?
A. You need to keep using your Page and sign up for our free Social Media Superstars to keep you informed and on top of the best ways to build your business, make it more engaging so you can increase your traffic and create some raving fans that will buy your products and share with their friends! (We also need it for FB Ads and boosted posts – more fun stuff to #rockthatdream!)
Q. Can I just use my Personal Profile for my business?
A. No. Facebook rules prohibit that and you can end up in Facebook Jail with no access to your contacts at all. Sign up for our Social Media Superstars Newsletter and you will learn how to artfully blend your personal and business life in a way that is acceptable to Facebook and not offensive to your friends (we don’t want you being unfriended!)
If you are already a FB pro, this wasn’t news to you but I promise, someone you know is going to ask you a question about Profiles, Pages or Groups… so, do yourself a favor and send them here to read up on the basics and I will do the training for you while you try to fill up those 5,000 friends!
