Facebook Business Pages Demystified for Business Owners

Facebook is so popular that business owners can simply no longer consider it a site only appropriate for socializing and game playing. In fact, in September 2010, Facebook surpassed Google in regards to the amount of time users spent on their site. Facebook states that users spend over 700 billion minutes per month on Facebook!
With 500 million active users, Facebook is the new behemoth on the Web. With its popularity across diverse age groups, integrated email application, and new Bing search integration, a Facebook user may simply no longer need to visit Google for Web searches or log off to use an email application. They may be able to experience the Web fully all from inside Facebook. With more than 50% of the active users logging into Facebook every day, according to Facebook, Facebook is now so important to your potential customers' lives that it make sense for you as a business owner to have a presence where your prospects are hanging out on a daily basis.
Let's clear up a few things that have confused business owners about Facebook. First, a Business Page is not to be confused with a personal profile. They are two separate entities and offer different options and ways to interact with friends and colleagues.
Are Business Pages also called Fan Pages?
Many of you that have been using Facebook for a while will remember that Facebook used to call Business Pages - Fan Pages. Additionally, it used to be that someone "fanned you". Now they "like you". Don't get confused in thinking that a Fan Page is a different product than a Business Page they are one in the same.
All Facebook Business Pages start with the set up of a personal Facebook profile. That's right, a personal profile! You can't just jump to Business Page set up. The email address and name you use for your personal profile must be one tied to a person and not a catchall email like info@mydomain.com. Remember, that if you have an employee set up the personal profile portion for your Business Page, that you don't want them to tie the new account to an email that you will not have access to if they leave the company. If they do so and leave your employ, you could lose access to your Facebook Business Page, all of your accumulated fans, and information without recourse.
For set up I typically recommend that one of business owners create a new email address specifically for Facebook set up. Once you have set up the personal Facebook profile, you are ready to get started. But, don't take time to add information like education other details in this special account unless you plan on using it for your own personal use. You are just setting up this account to have a platform to launch and access your new Facebook Business Page.
While logged in to your new personal account, visit this link http://www.facebook.com/pages/create.php?campaign_id=368885149649&placement=pgall&extra_1=1. It will take you to the Facebook Business Page creation tool to actually create your new page.
On the right side of the creation page select under the heading the "Official Page" and mark "Create a Page for a:" and then finally select "local business". Enter your page name and then tick the box next to the statement that says you are a legal business representative and allowed to own the page. It is important to understand that the name you choose for the title of your Facebook Business Page will appear at the top of your finished page.
I recommend using proper spelling and no use of hyphens or underscores in your selected name. It used to be we had to enter hyphens or the spaces would show as non-HTML characters in the page name and URL, but Facebook has grown beyond that need now. For example, enter in "My Business Name" (note the proper use of spacing and capitalization), not "My-Business-Name". This name will appear in your new Business Page URL as well.
Once you click create, the next page you see will be your brand new Facebook Business Page. It is that simple. Later after you've had 25 people "Like" your page you will be able to select a vanity URL, but we'll talk about that later.
Do my personal updates show on my Business Page?
After you have set up your Facebook Business Page, you can "lock down" your personal profile that was used to launch your Business Page. To do so, just you alter the privacy settings in the personal account to not show your personal information to others who are not "approved" friends.
When Facebook was first created many business owners including myself, started with a Facebook personal profile for their business. Now that Facebook has created Business Pages, you can easily change the privacy settings on your old personal profile to funnel your business traffic to your new Facebook Business Page keeping your old personal profile now just for family and close friends.
When you change the privacy settings on the personal profile attached to your Business Page, it does not impact who can view information about your Business Page. Just as equally, if you post pictures of your kids on your Facebook personal profile that is the launch pad for your Business Page, and you have your personal profile limited to "friends only", your kids' photos will not appear on the wall of your Business Page.
Why exactly would a business owner want a Business Page and not just use a personal profile?
Several reasons to have a Facebook Business Page are: the ability to contact all people who "Like" or who "Fan" you with newsletter type notes with one click, interact with discussion questions like a forum, set up events and invite fans to attend, and even create specialized welcome and shopping pages. Your Business Page can almost be a mini website!

Creating your Business Page vanity URL
Once you have 25 people that have clicked that they "Like" your Business Page, you can select a short easy to remember name to use to promote it on your website and business card. Your Business Page goes from something like http://www.facebook.com/pages/Waldorf-MD/mccord-web/129943573719686?ref=sgm to something like this http://www.facebook.com/mccordweb. Just visit this link http://www.facebook.com/username/. You can have vanity URLs for both your personal account and Business Page.
It is very important to understand that once you have selected your vanity URL you will not be able to change the name, so select carefully.
Best practice tips for keeping your new Facebook Business Page updated.
No one wants to be spammed, but sometimes new Business Page owners get excited and post what seems like a constant flow of information on their wall. It is important to understand that what you post on your wall is posted on the wall of the people who have clicked "Like" on your page. We encourage our clients, when they are doing status updates themselves, to be courteous and post about twice a day. Facebook is not Twitter and so 5 to 10 status updates a day could get you blocked or hidden by fans when they feel you have inundated their wall with your daily or hourly updates.

Conclusion
I hope that this white paper has helped to introduce you to Facebook Business Pages in a way that helps you to feel that you can easily set on up and have fun doing it. If you haven't set up your own Facebook Business Page, now's the time to consider setting one up. Facebook is only getting more popular and is actively seeking to woo the business community into their portal with demographic based pay per click advertising and the new integrating search with Bing.com.
If you feel that you need professional help in setting up your page or maintaining your updates and to interact with Fans, we ask you to consider our Facebook service offerings. I know that you will find us responsive and affordably priced.

How to Build a Facebook Fan Page and 6 Tips to Grow Your Reach

Social Media Start-Up Kit Series Part One: Facebook
With 2011 approaching, I wanted to reach out to small business owners looking to ramp up social media efforts for the New Year. This is part one of a four part social media start-up package series. This series will particularly help you if you've a) heard about social media but don't know how it can benefit your business or b) have invested some time and money into social media, but haven't seen any results.
My goal is to help the small business owner, move from curiosity and exploration in the social media realm to results and value. In part one of this series, I am going to cover Facebook, but stay tuned parts two, three, and four on Twitter, LinkedIn, and blogging.
FACEBOOK
Why
For a small business, there are few excuses not to have a Facebook Page. Over 500 million people have Facebook and 250,000 more join each day. It helps small business build brand awareness. Facebook can provide your business with real time feedback. It's the fastest way to communicate with many customers at once. You can track the effectiveness of your Facebook efforts. And it's free to set up a Fan Page.
How to for Beginners (skip this section if your business already has a Facebook Fan Page)
If you're not on Facebook, you need to first create a personal profile. You can do that by going to Facebook and filling in your name, email, password, gender, birthday, and all of the other required information. It's good to add a picture too so that people identify you and "add you as a friend".
Once you've set up your profile, you can create a page for your business called a Fan Page. You can do so by clicking on "Ads and Pages" which can be found on the left hand side of your Facebook Home Page.
Then click "+Create Page". This will prompt you to create a "Community Page" or "Official Page". If you're a small business owner, click the "Local business" button under the "Official Page" section and enter the name of your business where it says "Page name:". Check the box that says you are the official representative of the page and click "Create Official Page". Finally, verify it's the official page by clicking "create page," and then, in less than five minutes you've created a Facebook Page for your business.
Then click on the "Info" tab near the top of the screen, and click "edit information." This will prompt you to enter your company's "basic info," "detailed info," and "contact info".
Once you've finished filling out that information, click on the box to the left that says "Write Something About (YOUR BUSINESS)". In this section write a good, short description of your business and provide a link to your website and any other relevant sites (blog, twitter, etc.). If you'd like to edit what you wrote, click the pencil button in the upper right corner.
I would then recommend posting a few status updates. Spread them out over a few days, and provide useful information such as good links to relevant articles. Also add company photos of your products, services, and team.
The purpose for doing this before reaching out to people to "like" your page is so that people get a feel for the type of content you will provide on the page. If you have a relatively blank Facebook Page, people may not click the "like" button when they are invited to join it.
Complete your Facebook Fan Page by following the next steps as prompted by Facebook. Add your logo to your profile by clicking "Upload an Image" and then "Browse." Finally, you can invite your friends on Facebook to "like" your page by clicking the button that says "suggest to friends" on the upper left hand side of your page, underneath the logo.
And there you have it. If you've completed these steps, you've got a solid page with a good amount of people that "like" the page.
How to Grow Your Reach for Intermediate/Advanced Facebook Users
For business owners that have a Facebook Page set up, here are some tips and applications that can help grow your reach:
1. Import Contacts from your Email List.
You can do so from your Facebook home page. Find the "Get Connected" section on the right hand side of your profile. Click on "Find Your Friends" underneath where it says "Who's On Facebook?" This will bring you to a "Find Friends" page where you are prompted to add your email service provider. If your domain is yourbusinessname.com and you use Microsoft Outlook, choose "other email service" and click on the small link that says "File Importer". Then click on "Find my Windows Contacts" when prompted, and click "run" or "allow" when the security message appears. This will bring up a list of all of your contacts in Outlook that you are not friends with on Facebook.
After you've added friends from your email provider, Facebook prompts you to invite other contacts you have that are not on Facebook to join Facebook. I wouldn't recommend inviting everyone because a lot of those will be email addresses of people that are not linked to their Facebook account. In other words, they probably have Facebook, but are using a different email address with the account. If you go through each name and find people that you aren't friends with on Facebook, type their name into Facebook and see if they come up. If they do, add them as a friend instead of bombarding them with email.
Keep in mind that adding these people as friends won't necessarily motivate them to "like" your Fan Page. After you've added your email contacts, go back to your Fan Page, click the "suggest to friends" option, and choose the people that you think would like to be your fans.
2. Create a Welcome Tab and other Compelling Visuals using Static FBML.
Standard Facebook Pages come with the "Wall," "Info," "Photos," "Reviews," and "Video" tabs automatically. These are good to start, but there are plenty of other applications that can help reach and engage people. One of the most pervasive applications that is useful for every business is Static FBML. This application creates a new tab for your Facebook Page where you can upload compelling graphics. One of the first graphics you should make is a welcome tab that encourages people on your page to click the "like" button. If you'd like step by step instructions on how to create a welcome tab and other graphics using Static FMBL, check out our previous post "How to Create a Facebook Tab with Static FBML".
3. Measure the quality of your posts with Facebook Analytics.
With Facebook Analytics, you can track the number of impressions per post, daily "likes" over time, monthly active users, daily comments, and other metrics right on Facebook. If you'd like to learn how to do so, check out my previous post "How to Measure the Effectiveness of Your Facebook Posts".
4. Put the Facebook Icon on Your Marketing Materials.
Place the Facebook logo on your homepage, email signature, newsletter, LinkedIn profile, business cards, and other print materials. Also include a call to action on each to "like" your page on Facebook for deals, tips, articles, photos, updates, etc.
5. Advertise on Facebook.
Facebook offers more targeted advertising than traditional outlets. Facebook enables you to target individual people of a specific location, age, gender, interest, education level, birthday, relationship status, workplace, and even connections of your friends. If your business has an advertising budget, consider investing in highly targeted Facebook ads, track your success, and use these highly effective tips http://blog.wildfireapp.com/2010/10/19/18-highly-effective-tips-to-grow-your-fans-via-facebook-ads/ to maximize results.

The following is the full text:
Science and technology industry, companies such as Facebook is taken to claim the iterative development "strategy". The old products, new product rolled, rather than one year released a big a pile of product release. Facebook website often appears some experimental function, and then suddenly disappeared. This is the success of Facebook is one of many reasons why: it always keeps pace with The Times.

Unlike like textbooks as carefully polished product, the iterative development product will show a public sight in many mistakes and insufficient. On Facebook, the history of the legislature threat, users objections or negative opinions have contributed to the company's many production decision. Facebook recently for its products and service provision and making some adjustments and incur user strong opposition, now we can wait and see, Facebook will how to deal with the user's opposition.
On the other hand, under the loyal users and legislature discontent in front, Facebook showed great flexibility. On the other hand, Facebook also shows its power in constant growth, is increasingly unlikely to a decision to withdraw. Less than 10 years ago, university administrators can let Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (Mark hochfrequenztechnik zac closed.) And now, the United States senators began to discuss whether the newly revised Facebook privacy policy will produce adverse impact, but no one knows whether the senators talk can weaken the power of Facebook.

The following is the growing history Facebook event: infamous mistakes

Event: Facebook is a mess. Founded early Facemash project that zack sulzberger at harvard everyone knows. Three intends to develop Harvard Connection (then called renamed the ConnectU) social network project Harvard seniors also found him, hired him as a programmer.

Facebook how screwed up: if zack sulzberger did steal ConnectU's intellectual property and it is a serious problem.

How Facebook remedial: Facebook to existing products without making any modification to cope with legal action.

Brochure Design – Your Sales Representative

Core aim of every business strategy is to increase sales. Bringing in new and innovative products and launching them perfectly in the market are all focused to attract more and more customers; thus, it is important to align all your activities with the demands of your target customers. Understanding the demands of your customers and benefits of your products is beneficial for choosing the appropriate marketing tool for your brand.
Use of every marketing tool differs with respect to the nature of the business and its worth in the market. For example; a brochure design of an organization that has significant place in the industry will be different from a brochure of an organization that has just entered the industry. Moreover, nature of products, caliber of competitors and class of target customers are some of the most prominent elements that help in deciding the features of brochure design.
Brochure design is your sales representative. It works exactly the similar way as your sales representative does for your business. Does this statement seem a bit complicated? If yes, then rest of this article will make it simple for you to understand.
Brochure design is aimed at increasing sales of a product by interacting closely with its target customers and a sales person does the similar job. The foremost thing of a sales person that gets noticed is surely its dressing and personality. This first impression decides the fate of the interaction between the customers and the sales representative. Similarly, the outlook of the brochure also matters the most. The overall color theme of your brochure, its images and graphics serve to entice its customers. It is a proven fact that if your brochure fails to make a good impression in its first glimpse, then all your efforts will be ruined as none of your customers or might be few of your customers would read your brochure.
A sales representative succeeds in impressing the target customer via his personality then what next? What is the next thing that will help a sales representative achieve his mission? It is the style of communication that is responsible for convincing the customers to buy that specific product. Similarly, the way a brochure design communicates the benefits and features of a product, measures its strength to increase the sales of a brand.
Brochure design is not just a tool for promoting your products; in fact, it is a tool for communication. Your brochure communicates the attributes of your organization or your products to your customers.
There can be several ways through which a particular product can be promoted. Presenting your product in a unique way and elaborating its benefits to an optimum level, help in convincing the target customers that this is the only product that can meet all their requirements; thus, content of a brochure should be compelling and interactive. Your brochure design should be able to explain that how can your product bring ease to the lives of your customers.
Pattern of communication should always be kept simple and short. It shouldn't take a lot of time of your customers to understand what is being said in your brochure design.

Brochure Design – What matters the Most

In this competitive world, marketing strategies drive profit towards a business. In order to bring more and more customers for your products or services, you should first manage to attract them. This act of grabbing the attention of customers is called as marketing. It is a vast field with diversified ideas and techniques that help businesses grow and prosper.
In earlier times, marketing was given less importance, but growth in the business world has increased its importance tremendously as it has become important for a brand to gain recognition in the industry. Marketing helps in gaining the recognition and reaching the customers with ease. One can find thousands of brands for a single product in the industry; thus, it is necessary to promote your brand in such an effective manner that it stands out from its competitors. This will help in gaining the attention of the target customers and in winning their trust.
Considering the importance of marketing, one should use all the marketing tools with extreme intelligence. Using a tool is not a big deal but gaining benefit out of it, is interesting to watch. Therefore, one should thoroughly analyze a tool before using it. Brochure design is one of the fundamental tools used for marketing of a product or a service. The way a tool is used makes the whole difference. Almost every organization uses brochure design to promote its products but only few of them get the desired results. So, what makes the whole difference? There must be something that some organizations miss out in their brochure design.
Have you ever thought that what is the most important attribute of a brochure design? It is the quality of a brochure design that matters the most. Quality doesn't only refer to the standard of paper but it is linked with every single feature of a brochure. Starting from the colors of the brochure till its content, all should be unique and high in quality. High quality of your marketing tools helps you in gaining trust of your target customers. This increases the credibility of your organization or brand.
Good quality paper is essential for a sound brochure design. If a brochure design has sound colors, images, graphics and content but its paper is of low quality then all its impact will be lost. This brochure design will fail to create a sound image of the organization in front of its target customers. Thus, it is a foremost step to choose a good quality paper for a brochure in order to create a professional corporate image of your organization.
Images also play a pivotal role in grabbing the attention of the target customers. There quality is measured through their relevance to the nature of a business. Content is responsible for convincing the customers. The better you are able to demonstrate the benefits of your products; the greater is the quality of your content. Starting from tagline, slogans or captions till in depth feature analysis of the product; content must be short, comprehensive and compelling.
