There are many ways with which you can help your business grow. Below are presented some of the ways in detail:

  1. With the pay per click advertising, advertisers can reach out to potential customers effectively, even though the charges of Facebook are quite high for such advertisement. They need to pay Facebook for every click which is made by a user on their advertisements. The advertisements can be grouped easily by Facebook depending on various parameters such as groups joined by a user or his/her location, age or gender.                                                                                                            
  2. There are various applications like groups, events etc which can be used very effectively to reach out to potential customers. You can create Pages where you post information about your business and can use the pages to promote your business. However, enough care must be taken to avoid spamming different users.

  1. You can integrate your blogs with Facebook. Using this, the users need not go to a different link which is external to Facebook. Thus, using your blog, you can effectively market your product or service. You must take enough care in being presentable to everyone who visits your blog by making your blog attractive. You can include interesting images, videos and other such content so that people come to you.                                                                                                                                    
  2. Further, applications such as polls can be used for getting various types of information about likes and dislikes of people. You can send messages to different people or use Facebook Classifieds for posting ads. However, you must not spam others. Otherwise, Facebook can close your account.                                                          
  3. One must not try to present lies to others. Further, you would need to create interesting content which would make users come to your profile. You should try becoming friends with others and then start marketing yourself. The users who don’t know you wouldn’t like you selling something to them.                           

 Though the field of online marketing is new, there are ample opportunities for everyone. Facebook is a great platform and provides a great opportunity. However, you must ensure that you use Facebook sensibly. Annoying someone to achieve your purpose wouldn’t help your purpose.

Social Marketing is a relatively new concept. However, its popularity is rising to new levels owing to some exciting innovations. There have been many attempts on devising marketing strategies based on the internet. Social media marketing is one such exciting option. There are many social networking sites such Facebook, Twitter etc. However, the popularity of Facebook is unmatched. Owing to its huge popularity, Facebook has become such a portal which has a huge potential for advertisement and promotion of products and services.

 Some ompanies have used Facebook very well for promoting their businesses. One need to know what is an effective plan which would help an organization in building rapport with their potential customers using Facebook. Below are presented few such strategies which would be helpful in promoting one’s products and services.

  1. Facebook isn’t built for promoting businesses and any account which seems to belong to any one else than a real person, it is bound to get deleted. So, in order to both keep your account active and promote your services, you need to have lots of friends, send lots of messages and remain active.                                                                                                
  2. Advertisements can be placed depending on the groups joined by the users, their relationship status and various other parameters. This would help them choose an advertisement which might suit them.                                                                                       
  3. Many companies have actually used their Facebook campaign for making their services better. Such companies take feedback about their products and services from the consumers from Facebook. Then, they work on the problems, suggestions, criticism etc of the users and can use them to make necessary changes in their working. A classic example of this is that of Dell Computers. It was reported that the negative feedback from the consumers dropped by a considerable amount after Dell registered its presence on Facebook and started collecting feedback from its customers via it.                                                                    
  4. Advertisers create groups for promotion of their products. They invite users to join such groups. This would help different users to get a know how of their products. It is quite possible that such users turn up later for actually buying their product.                                                                                                                                  
  5. One must be willing to adopt a change for good. Sometimes, any user may provide a feedback regarding use of a particular service or product. In case the feedback is not positive, the company must be willing enough to accept that and make the necessary changes. For example Nestle Inc. didn’t pay heed to the negative comments which were posted by the environmentalists regarding use of palm oil which was in turn disturbing the eco system due to continuous cutting of rain forests.                                                                                                                                    
  6. Let your customers know about the various products and services that you offer. You can even create promotional events and provide various types of offers such as discount coupons.                                                                                                                     
  7. Facebook has an application and with its use, users can like or dislike a product. If someone likes anything, his/her friends can see that and go on to use the product and post their comments, thus building your popularity.

Judging from the questions I regularly see on this topic, there appears to be some confusion regarding the terms ‘duplicate content’ and ‘duplicate articles’.

What is the difference between these two terms?

Duplicate Articles:

A ‘duplicate article’ is an article that is submitted to the same publisher twice. No publisher wants to receive duplicate articles. Publishers want authors to submit articles that are fresh. By ‘fresh’, I mean that the article is completely new to the publisher. 

Of course your articles will be on the same general topic as the website that you are marketing, but each article must be different, offering new tips, new ideas, and new techniques. No publisher should look at your article and think, “Déjà vu – I feel like I’ve seen this article before!”

You very well may look at a publisher’s guidelines and see that they do not accept duplicate articles. That is a normal practice for publishers, and it is not the same as not accepting duplicate content.

Duplicate Content:

Duplicate content refers to an article being published on multiple pages on the internet. Usually the term ‘duplicate content’ is associated with how search engines perceive an article that is published on many sites.

There is some misunderstanding about how search engines regard duplicate content. Google does not punish a website or an author for having an article published on more than one site. With article marketing, the goal is to have your article republished on many sites, and the whole purpose of article directories is to provide free reprint articles to publishers.

So, search engines do not regard it as being a bad thing to have a piece of content published on multiple sites. This does not mean that they want to list every instance of the article on the internet in the search results.

A search engine will likely show only a few instances of an article on different sites in search results, meaning searches done by your target readers for keyword terms associated with your article.

(Of course if you do a Google search for your article title putting quotes around the title, you will be able to see a list of the places where your article is appearing.)

Are Most Online Publishers Opposed to Duplicate Content?

No, they are not – article directories in particular are not usually opposed to receiving articles that are published elsewhere, provided that you are the exclusive copyright holder of the article.

Article submission sites want you to submit content that belongs to you and that you have not previously submitted to that same site before.

Why are Most Article Directories Okay with Duplicate Content?

The whole purpose of an article directory is to provide free reprint articles for website owners and ezine editors. When an article is published on a directory, the goal is that the article be republished on other websites.

Most article directories will not require or expect that they will be the only site on the internet that contains your article. The very nature and purpose of an article directory goes against that expectation.

This is not to say that there are not a few directories that prefer to be the first website to publish your content. You can check the editorial guidelines at the article submission site to see if the site has such a rule.

As I mentioned, most online publishers are fine with accepting your articles that have already been published on other websites. (Remember, these are articles of which you are the exclusive copyright holder).

If you have the impression that a directory does not accept articles published elsewhere, then double check that you are not confusing ‘duplicate content’ with ‘duplicate articles.’
