4 tips for your Business Facebook page

Monday, January 6th, 2014


Consumers hate surprises (shocker I know) and if you are a new business, they will want to know all about you before they come to you for your services. It’s no longer just a case of hearing about a great restaurant from a friend and hoping they were right. Instead, they want to immerse themselves in your menu and scroll through the reviews before making a decision on whether your establishment is worthy of a visit. If this information isn’t easily accessible via a simple Google search, you may as well not exist. Besides the obvious formal company website, the most effective way to build trust between you and the customer is through Facebook . The king of social media isn’t just for connecting with old high school frenemies; with 650 million views and thirteen million comments being made on local Facebook business pages, creating a profile for your organisation is an opportunity but a necessary obligation if you are serious about promoting your services.

Take note: A Facebook business page should not be treated like your website. You need to give it some regular TLC to make an impact. Here are four tips to do just that.

Keep your Page Up to Date

Want to add value to your page? Do so by keeping all your basic business information correct and current. Especially leading up into the busy holiday period, your hours of operation are likely to vary so keep your fans in the loop so they are not left out in the cold. (more…)

Mobile Messenger Match-up: Hangouts vs Facebook Messenger vs Skype

Mobile Messengers

Google released it new stand alone Hangouts apps for Chrome, Android, and iOS after using the app for a couple of days I decided to how it stacks up against a couple of other cross platform mobile apps.

Google Hangouts

The Hangouts apps for Chrome and Android replace their Google Talk predecessors while the addition of an iPhone app is sure to increase the mobile adaptation of this Google Plus spawn.

Changes from Talk

The move from Google Talk takes away hidden and online statuses that were present in Google talk, gone also is the ability to make voice only calls. Whats been added is a new attractive interface and the ability to quickly search through contacts and groups stored in your Google address book.


My Thoughts on Google+

google plusWhat It Is

Google+ is Google’s latest venture into social media. Like other social networks it lets you create a profile, share text, links, photos, videos, and even your location.

Whats Different About It

Google+ puts the emphasis on Groups which it calls circles. To add someone to your network you must add them to one or more circles. When creating a post  Google+ clearly highlights who you’re sharing with. You can make a post public, share it with extended circles, all of your own circles, or one or more specific circles. After creating a post you also have the option to edit it, disable comments, and disable resharing of the post.

Google+  also lets you creat hangouts which essentially are video chat rooms which you can invite friends to join if they are available  or feel inclined to do so. The idea is a more casual approach to video conferencing than what you have with most instant messaging and video conferencing applications. (more…)
