Just "liked" all the new links on facebook here...

Here is mine... http://www.facebook.com/pages/Helena...?ref=ts&__a=16

Doesn't do any good from a generating business standpoint since we are all in different parts of the country, but I like seeing other's photos and getting ideas. Looks like all you folks are doing some great work!

That makes sense. Too much and people will begin to ignore you

So let me play devils advocate for a minute. Let's say you have a disgruntel customer or employee and he decides to trash your business on your FB page. What do you do then?

You have the option to delete posts on your page and there are certain settings to stop people from posting on your wall.

We use it as well.

I cannot post links since I have under 15 posts at the moment. When I achieve the posts I will post it.

However, we have very few fans at the moment... in fact, not many at all. Most people find us through our Internet site, but not through our Facebook site. Continue to hoping we can get some fans and make things happen with the site.

Re: If You're Not On Facebook, You Should Be.


I just created a business account on FB. However, others are unable to view my page, my name does not appear in the search engine even if one enters my email address and I am not interested in creating a profile as this forces me to create a personal FB account.

What am I doing wrong? Have anyone else ran into these problems?

Kindly awaiting a response from someone who can assist with my FB challenges.

Regards,
John

Re: If You're Not On Facebook, You Should Be.


I started mine yesterday. How do I search for "other companies" FB pages. I tried in the search window but it only found web sites for a few, nearby companies but no FB pages.

John,
Yes. You have to set up a personal account to get the business page to work (you can have separate privacy settings on your personal and business pages). They will work separately once you have both setup. On your business page you are your business profile, anywhere else on FB other than your business page you will be your personal profile.

Hope this helps

Just do a generic search on FB of your City or County to see local pages. But, typing in a specific business page in the search box should make that business show up. I searched "Just Exteriors" and only your website showed up.

It is the perfect word of mouth advertising medium. My page currently has 423 fans. I'd post the URL, but I am a newbie.

With as much as we've been bleeding money lately, any free method of advertising is good. Like my Granny always said...of course it's good...it's free!!
