Proven to Quickly Boost Your Likes | Improve Engagement on Facebook
Lately, while going through my team’s FB Pages at the Female BIZ Builders Savvy Community, I’ve noticed quite a few have not connected their Facebook profile to their business Page yet.
Which, in my view is a VERY important step to do as those who visit your profile can IMMEDIATELY see all about you.
Each time I friend a new person or go to a Facebook profile, I look at a few things:
- Their about page, who are they?
- Where do they work? What do they do? offer? etc…
- Married? Single? Children? I want to know bits of personal stuff.
- Do they have a website? Links I should / could visit?
- Do they show the connection to their business page?
- Social Sites: how influential are they?
These are things I continually look at when meeting new people. It gives me a very good overview of who they are or at least how they present themselves. Which brings me to this point:
Are YOU linking your Facebook profile to YOUR business Page?
If not… you are missing opportunities!
Let me show you what I mean. Look at the red arrow below. See how it shows a link to my Facebook Page. It is a live link people can click on when they come to my profile. Just click and voila!!! (Click Image to ENLARGE)
It is not always easy for me to remember people’s pages but I will remember their names. When I’m looking to visit their page, I love it when they have linked to their profile for I can easily find them this way. If they are not linked? Sorry… no visit from me. The reality is that they lost more than I did, cause I went looking for another page that offers what they had I was looking for.
Think of this as an important PIECE OF REAL ESTATE:
You can link and highlight your page in the employer section of your About profile; in fact it is the best place to do so. What a practical way to introduce people to your business as well as your visibility!
Follow these steps to link to your business Page to your Profile:
- Go to your personal Facebook Timeline.
- Click the About link, found below your picture.
- Now you will see the edit fields of your personal account.
- Click Work and Education Edit.
- Type in the name of your Business Page.
- The Page will appear in the suggestions.
- Click on it – it will add it to your Work section.
- Type in your job title, etc…
- Click Add Job.
- Click Done Editing. Save changes.
VOILA! Now, people can click on this link and easily access your Business Page! You are now connected and your visitors can find you much easier.
NOTE: Always use your Facebook profile to like Pages; it’s how Facebook counts the likes. Liking from your business pages does not count as a like to the page…
