Tips and Tricks for Facebook Business Pages

 

There are several ways businesses can optimize their Facebook presence.

 

  • Add a Call to Action button to your profile. This button will enable Facebook users to message your business. You can tell your customers to “Book Now,” “Message Us Today,” or any other relevant message.
  • Add a pinned post to the top of your page to make sure important information passes on to your customers.

  • Like other businesses pages to build a community or network for your business.
  • Use relevant hashtags and keywords in your posts, so that users can find you easily.
  • Include a link to your Facebook page on your website.
