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


Been working on my Facebook page. Have uploaded a lot of pics of my work. I think it is going to be a great asset to all our businesses. I have forwarded my website to my facebook page for ease of updating my site. I can just upload pic and post updates right from my cell phone. Makes having a nice current website very easy. Please take a minute and check it out. And please "Like it" and I will return the favor. We have to support each other. http://www.lemasterbuilt.com

I was thinking about advertising my electrical contractors business on Facebook but really can not determine what interests to target?

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


Energy efficiency, new lighting installations, importance of proper code during upgrades/additions/new, LED seems to be quite popular......show/talk about what projects you take on. Depending on your area etc. it may be most useful as a good boost for your website SEO or a possible avenue of customers on it's own......hint, after enough likes you can pick your page name/url. Choose it wisely (wish I'd have picked differently) and it can rank well in google on it's own for keyword search.

Congrats on the 500! Any tips for getting more likes without being too self-promoting? It's about time we jumped on the social media bandwagon!

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


My business is generated solely from referrals & while there are times when I wish that I were busier, Facebook is not the answer for me. I have my share of whacked out customers who could screw my reputation with just one bad post. No thanks.

I never have "unliked" anyone. Just figured it's an oversight.

I noticed you "liked" my page, but when I tried to return the favor, it took me to your personal page where I couldn't find a "like" button.

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


Hi,
I am the new guy here.
I work for a small independently family owned lumber yard.

We are trying to build a web presence, with a new FB page and website.Constructive criticism welcomed on either, or both.

I have been reading a lot here over the last few weeks, and finally found time to join this great site.

I've been going through this thread, and liking folks that are regular contributors, and that do the type of work that we focus on, which is mainly( but not restricted to ) remodeling of kitchens and bathrooms.
Hope to find some new FB friends here.
Thanks for a great thread.
