Don't let Facebook Erase Your Business

Anyone that has a small business knows that they need to get exposure where they can. Facebook was a great way to do that. Now however a page reach is getting smaller and smaller. Getting the reach that you were looking for when you made the page has become seemingly nonexistent.Who went to all the work of posting ads everyday to keep people to find out that they couldn't even see you. And NOT by their choice! Who wants to work that hard and then have to pay Facebook? Yes, paying Facebook to advertise for you is an option. And they decide who you are advertised to. If you do, this it is fine. I however have been looking for other ways to do this.

Well it's time to find a way to get seen again. Here are things that can help.

  • Friends on Facebook 
 Ask All Your Friends to Like and COMMENT on your posts.

  • Networking Ladder pages and groups
What is a Like Ladder and What is Promote My Business all About.
“Like Ladder” is for Facebook Fans to Tag Their Page in comments , then the GOAL is for everyone to Find pages on the Ladder that are NEW to them and Give them a LIKE.. This helps everyone who join Gain New fans, and build their Facebook Fan Base.. 

On Like Ladder’s It is very important for everyone that joins to always Play Fair, Meaning Always Like NEW PAGES. The Reason its called a Ladder you may ask, fans tend to scroll from The Top to the bottom or the Bottom to the Top of the comments to find pages to Like.
Another Post That we do is called “Open Wall”. This is kind of like a “LIKE LADDER”. You still Tag your page in comments, but on “Open Wall’s “ You can pick and choose who you would like to LIKE, and this is a great Opportunity to Advertise a Brief Description about your business. With “ Open Wall” Posts, You can also TAG Your Website URL, ETSY URL, anything link you would like our FANS to see.
“Shout Outs” is Another Fun Thing we do several Times A week. We Give our Customers a Full Feature “Shout Outs” so all Our Facebook Fans can see what their business is about individually. This is a great opportunity to show off the product that the business is advertising, an event , Sale, or Maybe a Contest they have going on at that time.. Now If you already have participated on a Like Ladder or Open Wall before, you may have ran into a problem with your page being hidden. Well here is a little trick for you to use if that happens.
Write a word such as “Hi” in the comments and press enter. A small pencil will appear in the top right of that particular comment, when you hover over it with the mouse courser it will show an option for Edit. Do this and paste your page into the ladder using the @(your Page Name) Then click enter.
Now for the FANS who are Pro’s at “Like Ladders”. Have you got to that point where you can’t like anymore pages cause you are at your MAX of Likes per Facebook ? There is a way to work around this, if you would like help with this please MSG our Facebook Page at So on a end note; I hope this was helpful to you all.. If you ever have any questions, please contact us and Join Some Like Ladder’s or Open Walls.

  • Facebook Interest Lists
This is one of Facebook's newest features that you may not have used yet but I can promise you will become one of your favorites once you get it figured out. There is so much you can do with it and I'm going to share a link with you so that you can make these lists pay.

A Dish Of Daily Life - This blogger has it figured out and explain how to get this link to help you and so many others.

  • Group
Make a group page for your business. You will be seen more this way. Make it a VIP group and really get people asking to join. Every time you post people in your group will see unless they mark it that they don't want notifications. As long as you aren't posting all the time you wont have may do this too you.

  • Events
Invite everyone to every event you have. It gives you exposure to your friends and even if they don't join they can see what it's about. Make it an open event and ask friends to invite friends and you could get even more exposure. It's all about being seen by as many people as possible right.

  • Posts
Ok let's avoid impersonal posts. Grab interest by making people feel good. Post images. Have this or that posts. To get people commenting on your posts on your page. The more people comment on your posts the higher you Facebook rating. The more people will see you. Keep it about your customers and wanting to know what they like and don't like.

  • Cover Images and Profile Pictures
Don't ever leave these empty. To have no images does not give off the impression that you want. Get images that represents your company. Have a nice picture of yourself if you would like. Nice does not mean a fuzzy picture. Make sure to post clear images. People react to these better and are more likely to click on a link if it looks like you put effort into it.

If you have anything to add that might help be sure to tell us about it in the comments.
