Facebook Business Pages
Facebook is the second most popular website on the internet, right after Google. That’s significant, because people who visit Google are typically looking for information/ to find another website, while Facebook is a place people spend on average twenty minutes per visit. 20 minutes. That’s HUGE! As of September 2014, Facebook published these interesting statistics: 864 million daily active users on average for September 2014 703 million mobile daily active users on average for September 2014 1.35 billion monthly active users as of September 30, 2014 1.12 billion mobile monthly active users as of September 30, 2014 Approximately 82.2% of our daily active users are outside the US and Canada
Facebook remains the largest social media service on the internet by a long margin.
If you have a website, a business or a product to sell, you really need to be on Facebook for three BIG reasons:
- Your content, if changed often, is search engine friendly,
- The information/feed comes right into the hands of your followers’ phones or screens
- It’s FREE. 864 million potential customers… for free… that’s NOT a bad deal.
If you post short, easy to digest articles that link back to your site, it will help encourage traffic to your website. If you post interesting articles, they will get shared across Facebook, which may get you more followers. If you pay Facebook to boost your posts, you will get more clicks and more people will learn about you.
