Many business owners, bloggers, entrepreneurs etc forget to «advertise» properly from their own Facebook profile which could have been done in an non-agressive manner or in an smart but silent way, if you like.
First of all, it is always good to tell the world what you are working with/what are you doing, and how they can find out more about that just from looking at your profile. What I mean with this you will see on the pictures below:
For my Facebook friends who can see more of my profile, it looks this way:
To see how it looks like for someone who is not my Facebook friend, let’s see how that looks like:
First, go to View Activity Log and then «View as»
Then you will get this view up and you will se that only your last added Facebookpage (where I have listed companies I have worked for or own), will be shown and it has a directly link to my Facebookpage. Here is where my non-Facebook friends, -or spies ;) can be directly directly to my Facebookpage.
If your page hasn’t listed the page, it might look like this and that is not very helpful for your «silent» advertising.
So remember to market yourself 24/7 to people who “just” drop by your profile by listing the link to your Facebook page.
Also, for what I did for my cover photo was linking my blog and Facebook page next to it. If you have strict security settings, only your friends will see this:
Here is where you edit your pages:
Hope this helps you a lot!
And please share this blogpost with someone else that needs to know and apply this!
Oh, and a little Facebook check:
1. How many times do you post something on your page daily? Statistics show that you should post 4-6 times a day, do you do that?
2. Do you use video? Did you know that directly upload to Facebook gives high organic reach?
Step 1: Download the Periscope app on your mobile, go to the App store
Step 2: Connect it with Twitter (it will ask you to login to Twitter)
Step 3: Open the app and click the group icon on the bottom right.
Step 4: Click the magnifying glass on the top left to search
Step 5: Type my name Vanessa Raphael into the search box, (it’s @VanessaRaphaelM on Twitter)
Step 6: Click to follow
Step 7: Enable notifications so you know when I broadcast
As long as you’re following me, you can view my broadcasts for up to 24 hours after the live one.
Hope to see you there! :)
