  • Facebook page for website

    I've just made a facebook page for my craft website to try generate more traffic.

    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Things...666540?sk=wall

    It's early days yet to see if it makes any difference but I just wondered if anyone has had success going down this route?

    I decided a while ago that it would help get people to my website and it has.
    Not that Ive started selling anything yet: but it means more people are likely to come across your website.
    It;s nice to read comments and feedback from people too, it makes you feel like people are taking an interest.
    Ive given you a like.

        I've also popped over and liked. I have found it a good 'tool' and can also be enjoyable to keep in contact with like minded peeps. When I do craft fairs etc I give out my business cards and most peeps like the idea of initially going to a FB page rather than a blog or even a website. It's what most people are used to and understand.

        Good luck

        PS.. there is nothing in your info tab at the mo, you can put a bit about who you are and links to your web etc.

          I think a FB is a good marketing tool - and its free! I dont have a huge amount of 'likes' (just over 100) but have just launched a photo comp to win a free Drying Coat - so everytime someone posts a photo on the facebook page all their friends can see that they've posted and so i'm getting extra exposure. Got 10 more likes yesterday just because of this. Its also a great place to let folk know if you've released a new product and also nice that people can leave feedback/comments for others to read which increases your credibility.

            I think that having a Facebook page for your business is a great idea. I have one - Lotties Hand Crafted Jewellery check it out, I have had it since about March and really really love interacting with my buyers and other business pages on there....SOME have thousands of likes.....I dont know how they do it! I would love to know. I have just over 330. I've liked your page! good luck.....and get sharing with your friends!

              Im still unsure if I should go "all singing & all dancing with facebook" on my site, I do see where it can be great, but its not my cup of tea, so thats why Im still thinking about it. Would it be such a loss if I never?

                There's so much out there that you could spend all day every day just promoting yourself. I'm not mad on Facebook and don't use it to its full potential - and I think you can safely use other routes for promotion if you prefer.

                It's probably best to spend time on doing something well than on spreading yourself thinly. Blogging has worked well for me, as has Twitter. Having said that, facebook, twitter and blogging can all promote each other if done well. Don't beat yourself up over it though - do what suits you best.

                  That was quick Wendy, you had a caffeine fix?

                  Thanks very much for your words of wisdom, "It's probably best to spend time on doing something well than on spreading yourself thinly". You have hit the nail on the head there, its been playing on my mind what to do about it, so Im going to leave it for now & have a re-think in a couple of months.
                  Thanks again, you were very helpful Wendy,

                      Thanks for all the comments, I have 59 'likes' at the mo which I'm really pleased about, new people are joining every day...I've liked everyone's fb pages, I agree that it's a great way for us all to keep up the community spirit...Picto - Thanks for pointing out the lack of content in the info tab, i'll look into that.

                          Facebook, Blogs, eBay site or other sites with Google checkout will help you up through the rankings.
                          It's all to do with Google bots and spiders, you can see them on this forum on the "who's online" button under the "quick links" drop down menu.
                          1st you'll see all the members name then the guests then the spiders and bots.

                          The YouTube video below helps explain it all.

                            OK, personally I wasn't particularly bothered about having a Facebook page. I made one anyway (probably about this time last year) and pretty much ignored it. Then I started to notice past and present customers starting to 'like' it...I had no links to my page so I can only assume that customers were searching for it.

                            So now I update it, admittedly not very often but have over 400 'likes' and I am finding that the majority of people who are interacting with it are my customers...which is a REALLY GOOD thing!

                            I don't get this level of interaction with customers via blogs, twitter, linkedin or any other marketing tool so in my opinion a Facebook page is a must have.
