Facebook Events For Business

If you have your Facebook Business Page up, are you using it to take advantage of the promotional opportunities available?

Facebook events can be a great way to create a social buzz about your business, while attracting more customers; visibility and traffic for what you offer.

Any event you are holding offline – a sale; a customer appreciation event; maybe even an event just for those who connect with you on Social Media – can all be announced and promoted using the Facebook Event feature.

You can even do a virtual event!

You can invite people to attend; get RSVPs ahead of time; and invite your fans and followers to help promote the event for you. Remember, people want to be where the action is! Make that your business.

During the event, you can encourage those attending to post status updates and “tweet about it on twitter.” This can create more exposure and attendance. Take plenty of photos at the event!

Once your event is over, you can write up a recap and share photos in a photo album on Facebook. Get permission to “tag” your attendees in the photos and that will create after the event awareness and more fans for your business.

Word of mouth advertising is the most powerful form there is and there is nothing better than having your raving fans attending and promoting all of your business events!
