Facebook – Simple Tips To Optimize Time, Exposure and Reach

Facebook, Is It Worth It?

Facebook just keeps getting bigger and bigger – currently 1 Billion users.  Everyday, more and more people along and more companies are embracing Facebook.facebook

But the real question for any business owner is:

Is this where my buyers hang out? 

If the real answer to that question is “No”, then you can save yourself some time.

But be certain.  Don’t assume you know the answer.  While you may not hang out on Facebook, that doesn’t mean your audience does not.

The laws of sociology still apply.  People gravitate to where they feel the most comfortable and where they are likely to meet people most like themselves.  For some that will be Facebook, while for others it may by the corner of LinkedIn and Twitter.

If your audience does use Facebook, meet them there.   Concentrate your energies in engaging them where they are most comfortable.
