Top 3 Facebook Tips from The Social BUZZ Lab

Do you want to build more "buzz" on Facebook?

With two web sites and a weekly Twitter chat to promote, I know I do. That's why I signed up for Patsy Stewart's HandZon Social Media Facebook Workshop.

BlacksburgLodging's Facebook page In one afternoon, I greatly expanded my knowledge of how to gain more user interaction, increase the number of fans for my business pages, and create a strategy to continue to build buzz for my brand. 

Here are 3 Facebook tips I took away from the workshop:

  1. Your Facebook Page can be viewed by anyone even if they are not on Facebook.
  2. The content posted on your Facebook page is indexed by Google. 
  3. "WHEN" you post something to Facebook can be as important as "WHAT" you post. Look at "View Insights" as an admin on your business fan page. "Interactions" will show you time-of-day activity.

Having arrived at the workshop without my laptop, I pulled out my iPod Touch and created a Facebook page for Blacksburg Lodging. Using the strategies Patsy outlined in the workshop, I had enough "fans" within 24 hours to enable me to claim my page name and establish ownership of the Blacksburg Lodging fan page: The buzz is just beginning.

  1. It was such a pleasure meeting you at the workshop, Kelly! Im so glad you got a lot out of it and were able to create some buzz for your business page. Patsy and John have a way of making social media strategies simple to understand and execute for your business.

  2. I liked that everything you, Patsy and John presented was relevant and timely. I’ve still got a “to do” list to complete, but without the workshop, I would not have a list at all!

    Thank you!

  3. Great tips! I will use them all!
