August 24, 2015


Whether you’re a Facebook veteran or a newcomer that’s just learning the ropes, as a business owner you likely understand the need to establish a Facebook page for your business.  Social media is a powerful force in growing your customer base and spreading the word about your business. 

That said, most people can’t name 1000 friends, so getting that number of fans for your Facebook page may be a challenge.

Neil Patel of Quick Sprout has developed a great infographic that addresses this problem.  Going step-by-step, Patel shows you how to complete your page’s profile, use your existing social-media network to grow your fan base and use email and other channels to increase your followers

  • Place Facebook buttons on your website to drive traffic to your page
  • Use Facebook advertising to find fans with similar interests
