Before you make a rash decision about dropping facebook, first it’s important to have a closer look at your social media strategy, because most times, the problem comes from there rather than changes facebook has been making.

Let’s take an in-depth look on some of the causes of below par performances from facebook campaigns.

Know who’s buying your product

When a business owner  has no idea who to buy your  products, there is no way you can know who your target audience is.

When there is no clear understanding of who the target market is, its very hard to write anything in terms of content that your readers will connect with.

The target market needs to be very easy to say and remember, not some group of people you have to think 30 minutes before you can come up with a set of words to define them.

To understand your demographics, you can ask the following questions about your brand:

  1. What kind of solutions,are you selling?
  2. Are your buyers located in a certain geographical location?
  3. Are your buyers industry specific?
  4. What interests them, engages them, defines them?

When you answer deep questions about your buyers and the reasons behind their purchase decisions you build a solid foundation for a social media strategy.

Because this questions helps you identify with your audience, you learn about their concerns and they become part of your sphere of influence

Remember being successful on facebook all comes down to understanding your prospects, once you’ve done that engaging and motivating them is very easy, narrow down your target and focus on an optimised group of people.

Most people really don’t care

Current customers could be a rare exception, but the bulk of most people who make up your fans on facebook probably do not care about your brand, product or service. They all care about one thing; themselves, their interests and goals.

Your team of social media marketers should all be thinking towards these direction, what can you give your prospects that they cannot get elsewhere, information, discounts, gifts, education, experience, entertainment, etc.

Put all other emotional attachments aside, people rarely engage with brands for the objective of just connecting. The reason some of your prospects are engaging with your brand currently is because you have offered value to them before.

Facebook is a great place for customer retention and servicing your customers, but when it comes to building a proper relationship with prospects, it takes a bit of time and consistency in providing value on a regular basis.

Audit your facebook page

Once you have a good understanding of who your target audience and buyers are, its time to take a very keen look at your facebook page. And answer the following questions:

  1. Would your facebook page appeal to your prospects?
  2. Why or why not?
  3. Is the facebook page engaging enough?
  4. Are you promoting too much and acting in YOUR interests, instead of theirs?

Providing value is very important when it comes to building a community, and that’s essentially what a facebook page is all about. There needs to be a concentration on your prospects and what they are getting from being part of your facebook page

Know your Online Marketing Objectives
