Have had mine setup for a while now but am taking it more seriously as I have just gone fulltime self employed. Any recommendations would be great.

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


One of the things I do with my FB page is I like other local businesses and when they post things, I like it. My FB page is now on their likes so maybe, a big maybe, others will see it and click on it to see who I am. I like all local sports teams and news stations.

Once one of the local weatherman was showing his FB page during the news cast and it just so happens my companies name showed up pretty clearly under the post he was showing. I know it didn't yield me anything but it was there.

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


Gastek I took your advice and liked a whole bunch of local organizations.

I have been promoting my page and acquired 50 likes in a couple days time. Is it too soon to make a post to try to get some leads?

Ive created a flyer for decks with the incentive that with each deck they get a free bench and planter combo.

Should I post this on my facebook? Will everybody that has liked my page see it?

Yes any print advertising you create you should also put on your FB page as well.

Would be interested to know how you have been affected by Facebook's recent algo changes. Lots of SMBs have seen big drops in exposure, so have been making up for it in paid promo.

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


We have not had much success with Facebook so far. In fact, we have shifted some of our marketing budget to invest more in making sure our profiles are set up and updated on Angies List, Home Advisor, etc. Instagram seems like a good platform, but it is tough if your crew in the filed does not have access to a smart phone or the time to take pictures. What do you guys think of Twitter? We have had more success there then anywhere else.

Heard some reports of Twitter Promoted Tweets being decent, but it's the Twitter Lead Generation Card that looks really interesting to me:

Fb is becoming almost pointless for small contractors.

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


Have yall tried posting your services to the local beg, borrow, barter, sell groups? It seems kinda spammy, but I've seen other people do it but I'm curious about the response it generates.

Here's my Facebook
