Knowing what will help your business target the most relevant audience will increase your reach exponentially.Using a Facebook Business Page effectively is one key strategy.
Search Engines like Google have particular webpage features prioritised to return efficient search results for their users. Below are some Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) strategies that will increase the effectiveness of your Facebook Business Page.
The Right Name
One of the top features is the very first word of a site. To make the most of this, ensure your title is as close to your business name or service as possible, without using generic words, and connect it closely with your business domain too. Make it short and concise, with specific words and very few fillers.
Complete Your Profile
The more information a user sees on your page, the more professional you appear. Potential customers like to have direct access to operating hours, contact details, location and main service information, so ensure you fill in all of these and keep them up to date.
As well as your ‘about us’ section. Litter this with specific keywords related to your services, keeping an eye on spelling and grammar and minimal fillers once again.
