How to use social media for business on the new Facebook graph search
Facebook recently introduced the new Graph Search feature that is full of feature rich search capabilities. A number of business owners have asked me how to use social media for business so here are a few tips on how optimize your Facebook page so that you are found:
Create a Page for your Business: If your business has a profile on Facebook, and it’s optimized properly, it will appear in a Graph Search as well as on the recommended pages of other profiles.
Add the address of your location: The Graph Search will allow you to search by location so it’s important to have the correct location updated.
Complete as much as you can on the ‘about’ page: Keywords and descriptions of your services or products will show up as recommended options.
Categories and Keywords: As people search for specific categories and keywords your business page will appear based on what you have listed in the about section. You can list up to three categories. Example: Florist, Flower Deliver, Wedding Florist
Who is your competition? Just enter your business product, service or category in the Graph Search and find out.
Why Facebook stalkers need to be monitored, and what to do about it!
This morning I woke to a message that someone who I never met tagged a photo of me. Of course when you see an email with that type of alert you are going to run to your computer and delete, block and untag yourself. Here is what I saw in my message box. (Don’t worry…it’s clean)
It pays to stay alert and manage the tags on your Facebook pages. Click on ‘settings’ and look to the left for “Timeline Review”. This will allow you to view tags from friends and others. You have the opportunity to manually approve all posts you are tagged in before they go on your timeline. Note: This only controls what’s allowed on your timeline. Posts you’re tagged in still appear in search, news feed and other places on Facebook.
As we prepare our marketing plans for 2013 and the use of Social Media I wanted to share with you the video that highlights the power behind social media and your business. Be smart, engage and don’t get left behind. Social is where it’s at.
RebelMouse is the new social media aggregator. It’s easy to set up, easy to customize and a fun way to highlight your favorite social media channels.
Here are 6 ways to use RebelMouse for your business.
1.) Highlight your top blog post or video and have it tagged to stay positioned on the front page for a specific number of days or hours by using the edit key on the right of the post.
2.) Track your statistics on the stories within your RebelMouse page. You can see who came to the post by the hour, daily or monthly. You can see click through rates and how viral your article is on the various social media channels.
3.) Move the post from left to right, top to bottom or center it in the middle. Hi post that gets lots of attention on Facebook or your Blog should do the same on your RebelMouse page.
4.) Customize the colors and font on your RebelMouse page to match your website. You can even create a custom designed header and banner to tell your story.
5.) Embed your RebelMouse page on your website. You can use it as a front page where all your content is seen at first glance or create a separate page like Social Stream where the content is constantly changing.
6.) Repost an article or video to another RebelMouse page you manage but remember to add a hashtag and comment in the body of the widget.
