how to use facebook for business

Yes I did say using Facebook for business!  Many times when I am speaking in front of a group about Social Media for business or providing Social Media consulting services to one of our clients and Facebook comes up I often get a blank stare.  It seems many business owners do not understand how they can receive referrals, new customers, and new business from facebook.

Facebook is the #1 website online.  More people are on Facebook then any other website, it’s where people are spending time.  As a business owner you want to position yourself and your business where people spend their time.  This makes Facebook a very important tool which could generate a huge amount of referrals for you and your business.

facebook logo 7 Top Reasons Facebook is a Must Have for Your BusinessFacebook is a free-access social networking website.  Users can join networks organized by city, workplace, school, and region to connect and interact with other people.  Currently the number one Social Network with 26 million users in the US alone!  So why should you and your business be active on Facebook?  Here are my top 7 reasons:

1) Reconnect
With so many users on Facebook it’s become very easy to connect with friends, clients, and co-workers both current and past.  With each connection (friend) you have the opportunity to let people know what you are currently doing and possibly turn this connection into a new client.  It’s amazing the amount of new business you can create with old friends.
