Social Media is a really important part of marketing your business today.

One thing I have noticed is that many times Facebook pages have missing information, or missing Profile photos. Following is a link on 10 tips to consider when using building your social media presence on Facebook.

10 Facebook tips

As Balloon Professionals we follow a lot of other balloon professionals work through their Business and Personal pages. Check the tips below to be respectful of others businesses

If you have a question about a design or mechanics of a piece, send a Private message.

To be respectful Do not Post on another’s page:

  • How did you make the frame?
  • How much did you charge for that?
  • What size balloons did you use?
  • Is that a square pack arch or a garland?
  • Can you give me the recipe for that?

THINK about how you would feel if some one posted that on Your Page in front of your clients. A Business page is about your relationship with your client, and sometimes clients follow people on a personal page also. Be respectful and send those questions in a Private message.

DO’s for building content on your Facebook Page

  • Post photos of your work with creative descriptions like Garland Arch.
  • Create specials for your clients.
  • Post your own photos from past years to promote holiday specials etc.
  • Fill in all the details: Phone, email, website, location, description
  • Post a Cover photo
  • Post a profile photo
  • Keep it professional

Dont’s for building content on your Facebook Page

  • Post other peoples work on your facebook page
  • Use another companies photo and put your watermark on it
  • Flood your feed with shared photos
  • Leave contact information and description blank
  • Put personal views on business page

Check to make sure your Business Page is actually a Business page!

To create a business page, you start on your personal home page

click on arrow on top right of page – Create Page

Select Business Page

IF you have a business page that is actually a personal page – Facebook can shut you down.

FILL IN YOUR CONTENT!!! When I get a friend request and the profile photo is the stock one that comes when you start a page without any personalization I wonder if it’s a scam.

Our Wonderful Teachers from last week Tommy DeLorenzo, and Scott Hemphill built a large following from their clients via Social Media and facebook. Make time Weekly, if not Daily to Post photos and short remarks onto your Business Facebook Page!
