To Use Or Not To Use Social Media Groups To Enhance Your Online Marketing Business

In our past issue we went over a few tips for money making on Facebook. In this issue we are going to talk about Facebook marketing and Facebook Groups for your business.

This Facebook Group Application has recently been revamped by the social networking site, making it more practical and friendly for its users. As a strong point, the Facebook Group Application can not be used for professional purposes in order to build a target market. A group can be kept secret or open should the moderator chooses to do it. With Groups, the participants are able to start discussion posts, post links as well as photos.

Unfortunately, at the present the Facebook Group Application has a constrained ability if you are using a Fan or Business page although one is still allowed to have an open group using the said pages. In order to work around this limitation, companies can either have an employee open a personal account and then take control of their Facebook marketing efforts or be very careful who they choose as contacts in their business page. Even the business owner can implement this directly.

Let’s quickly check out a few ways to apply social media management and using the Facebook Group Application to your advantage:

– As Connection to other Industry Figures

Regardless of the industry you belong to, a solid discussion about various issues is quite important for you as a businessman. This not only increases your knowledge about the industry you’re in but also builds your reputation among other business owners.
