5 reasons to use Facebook

Like many social media sites Facebook has brought many benefits to businesses, helping them to connect with their current customers and potential new customers.  

So why connect? and what are the benefits?

Take this example - you provide a service or a product, and customer Jenny Jones is very pleased.  Jenny Jones likes to use Facebook and tell her friends and family what she has bought, where she has visited and to promote the great bargains and deals she has purchased.

Your customer Jenny visits your website and clicks  on your website.  Your website then gets listed into Jenny's Activity Log on her Facebook page so all her friends can see.

Jenny’s friends and family are keen to know what Jenny likes so they too click on the link to see what Jenny is promoting. 

This activity generates many benefits:

  1. Promotion of your business from Jenny to her friends and family.
  2. Increased visits to your website from Jenny’s friends and family that click through to view your website.
  3. Increased awareness of your business - service and products.
  4. Additional likes from Jenny’s friends and family that also like your website or webpage.
  5. Possibly increased sales from Jenny’s friends and family that like your products or services.

If you had 10 people like your page each with 100 friends on Facebook then it means potentially 1,000 people could be informed about what you do.

Don’t forget that with an edit.com website you can turn on Facebook Likes on every page with just one click
