Driving Traffic to Your Site with Facebook
Do you use Facebook to drive people to your web site? If you aren’t then you need to keep reading to find out how using 5 simple steps can be very effective.
Often I have clients who are hesitant to use Facebook to promote their business and I just scratch my head. They claim they don’t want to bother their friends by posting about their business. This is a huge misconception. Unless their friends track every post they put up, the chances of their friends being “overwhelmed” by promotional messages is very slim. Yes, I can see if you are constantly posting the same content, but with careful planning the content can vary so the messages don’t get stale.
