How to use Facebook for your business, money isn’t going to fall from the sky!

by Adam Bean on May 30, 2012

For years you have been running Yellow pages ads How to use Facebook for your businessand promotions in the local newspaper which brought people in to your shop. They in turn purchased your products, and all was good in the world.

But recently (the last 12 – 18 months) you have noticed something has changed.

All of a sudden people aren’t responding to your ad’s like they used to, and it’s getting increasingly tougher just to get people into your store that will actually spend money with you.

So what is happening? Why the change all of a sudden? Well there are a couple of factors at play.

One

Mobile devices such as smartphones are changing the way media is consumed. People don’t look in the Yellow Pages like they used to anymore, they Google things or see ads on Facebook.

Two

Online shopping is becoming more commonplace, even just a few short years ago people were reluctant to hand over their details and buy online. Now it seems like they just can’t spend their hard earned cash quick enough on there.

If you are like many other small business owners you are getting bombarded with information about how Facebook is the magical fix. Just jump online and throw up a Facebook page and the masses will flock back to your store. This is the line  many so called Social Media Marketing experts are feeding you.

It only makes sense to do this right? I mean if people have given up on traditional mediums such as phone books and newspapers and they are spending online, then it should just be a simple matter of jumping online getting your message in front of them and all will be good in the world again. Right?

WRONG

I am not saying to avoid using social sites like Facebook, in fact quite the opposite. You must discover as soon as possible, the best way  how to use Facebook for your business.

Don’t tell me your business doesn’t suit Facebook. Recently I used the case of the Super Butcher who is literally carving up the Social Marketing world with over 17,000 people on his page when I checked it this morning.

Is this just a fluke ? No way in hell. You see the super butcher understands that using Facebook is just part of his marketing strategies.

When I first saw his page I thought to myself, maybe he just has a heap of numbers on his page, that really aren’t interested in his business. I mean you can go to sites like fiverr and buy 500 or even 1000 likers for only $5.00 Don’t do that buy the way, it is just an act of sheer ignorance or stupidity that causes people to think that buying likers from there is a good idea.

I can tell really quickly if a Facebook page is successfully selling to its market, just by reading their feed. And let me tell you this about the Super Butcher.

He knows what he is doing, and he has excellent systems in place.

So what I decided to do was take some of his strategies that are obviously working really well, and amped them up with a few killer strategies that he isn’t even using, and put it into a system that will teach you how to use Facebook for your business.

All this info is laid out in an online video course, that will show you the exact steps you need to put in place to create your own online marketing system that works harder for your business than you do.
