9. First step – do you have a Facebook Page Step 1: Build your Facebook Page Everything on Facebook starts with your Page. Create a Page. It’s a simple, free way to communicate with customers. You don’t have to have a personal profile to set one up, but we highly recommend that you use your profile to set up your page, this gives you more control, it will not show up in your personal profile in any way unless you share posts from your FACEBOOK BUSINESS PAGE. This is what Facebook uses as an example. Check it out: State Bicycle Company $500k in annual sales from Facebook 10k more likes within a year — learn more

10. Step 2 Choose an objective Get people to like your Page. Create several ads and target based on location, demographics and interests. ( click on the link and go to the Facebook Help Page, they have free tools for you!) Talk to some customers and friends who know and love your product or service and ask them to LIKE your page. Look at who your target market is so that you can create a targeted marketing campaign. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Take some time on this. Choose the objective for your campaign •Boost your posts •Promote your Page •Send people to your website •Increase conversions on your website •Get installs of your app •Increase engagement in your app •Reach people near your business •Raise attendance at your event •Get people to claim your offer •Get video views

11. Step Three – Engage www.thecommunicationstudio.ca Have a posting calendar Decide what images will engage your customer base Decide on how much you would like to spend on each engagement. You can spend as little as a $1 a day! We recommend spending a bit more. Decide on the value of a customer! I was speaking with an architect who spends $200 a month on Facebook and on average that gets him one new project. Most of his projects are worth $5 to $50 K. It is worth the investment for him. You will need to test what kind of posts and promotions work with your customers, so start with $1-$5 really targets posts. Pick a specific location like your home town, or just friend of the people who already like your page and average Test – test – test!!!!!
