Tip #2: Inject Your Personality Into Your Facebook Page

 

There is an ongoing debate about how much personal you bring into your business ‘social’ space.  We’ve even written articles about it here on Smallbiztechnology.com.  While there is a balance that should be maintained, there is no reason to toss all personality aside when designing your Facebook business page. After all, your business is YOU…so go ahead and show the world!  It may help others feel more connected to your business knowing that there’s an actual ‘human’ behind it all!

Here are three simple tips from ‘The Facebook Guide to Small Business Marketing’ on how you can inject personality into your Facebook business page:

  1. Steer clear of stock images and use real pictures of your business.  
  2. Get creative with the cover photo to display your product / service – it can be a great selling tool and a fantastic way to showcase your work.
  3. Use conversational language, not business jargon.  Eliminate superfluous, unwieldy language and speak to your followers (don’t sell to them) in the way you’d want to be spoken to.
Let your self shine on your page and your business will shine with you! For more great tips on how to market your business with Facebook, check out ‘The Facebook Guide to Small Business Marketing’.

      I think Facebook is good for ANY size business – EVERY wants to read, be informed, and uses online content for sure. Really depends on HOW you do it :)

    Ben – I think this suits all professional businesses…to a point. As with everything, there is a line that exists between too much and not enough. It really comes down to the perception they want people to have of their business – keeping in mind the type of businesses / people that they want to do business with. I like doing business with people that have personality – even my accountant! Having personality doesn’t take away from your professionalism or abilities – I think it enhances them.

    As for more ways to inject personality and other great tips – you really should check out the book Ramon wrote – ‘The Facebook Guide to Small Business Marketing’. It truly is chock full of GREAT info!
