5 Ways to Promote Your Products on Facebook

By Zsuzsa Kecsmar Published http://www.socialmediaexaminer.com  September 13, 2016   Do you use Facebook for business? Looking for new ways to show off your products?

In this article, you’ll discover five ways to increase the visibility of your products on Facebook.   #1: Ask Fans to Show Their Love for Your Products A user-generated content (UGC) campaign is all about asking for and sharing your customers’ content.

For instance, would you want EVERY person you’ve ever handed your mobile number to be able to find you, instantly, from a simple search? Or would you want people to be able to work out your ‘secret’ crush who you’ve been searching for on Facebook? No? Very sensible. Here are five things you should probably delete from Facebook – if you value your privacy, your relationship and your job. Your phone number   If you’ve ever put your mobile number on your Facebook profile – something FB is keen for you to do if you upload pictures from mobile – you should worry. By default, people can search for you using your number, even if you’ve hidden it from your profile. Many users are not even aware they ARE ‘sharing’ their mobile number in this way. To get rid of it, tap on your profile picture, then go to Update Info. Facebook says, ‘Everyone who uses Facebook has control of the information they share, this includes the information people include within their profile, and who can see this information. Our Privacy Basics tool has a series of helpful guides that explain how people can quickly and easily decide what information they share and who they share it with.’ Your ‘Likes’   Your LIkes are actually very visible on Facebook – and can be searched, so...
