3. Publish Good Content
Be as clear and direct as possible. If you make it too wordy you will confuse your audience.
*Leverage existing content produced by customers and fans.
Warning: Facebook content is indexed by search engines, Don’t copy and paste content from your site to Facebook, instead create new content specifically for your Fan Page (or re-word your article). This will prevent search engines from thinking that you have duplicated someone else’s content and consequently granting you a secondary listing.
*Provide exclusive content such as competitions, polls and quizzes, this helps increase fan engagement
When using Facebook to promote business it should be focused on how to make meaningful connections with people. It’s less about your content and more about your friends / fans.
Good Content + Social Features = Fan Interaction
