Hello again. Sorry it’s been so long since the last post – life and all… So… what makes a good page a good and a bad page a bad page? Well looking at the sites that I posted last time, were you able to tell the differences and which were good and which were bad?

The first thing is visually. Which of those were the most visually appealing and why? Of the four examples, three are visually appealing – at least for Facebook standards. Which one is lacking? The Naked Limo page. Why know profile picture? Does that white suitcase look appealing to you at all? What???!! It doesn’t? LOL. Me neither. It doesn’t take much to upload a picture of yourself as a business owner, or a picture of, um, I don’t know… how about a LIMO?! This site is a limo company with no pictures of limos. In fact, there are no pictures at all. Next!

Next is content. Now look at one for Eugene Carpet Cleaning. Nothing Fancy, but it shows what their business does and the profile picture, while not awesome, still is appealing. If you have a dog and he has peed on the carpet, and you have scolded him for it – well, that’s the look he gives you. LOL. Also, their posting at the top of their page is for their website: www.eugenecarpetcleaning.net. Facebook is just a way to attract eyeballs, their website is where they get the business, so having this as the first post is a great idea. The rest of the content talks about who they are and what they do. And it has a ton of likes, Continue reading

I don’t know you, so how could I know that your web site or your Facebook page stinks?

Well, I don’t, but statistically speaking, most are terrible, so I can assume yours is a least mediocre.  Don’t take it personally, like I said, I haven’t seen it.  But if you would like me to take a look at it, you can leave a comment below or email me here.

Have you been on Facebook for awhile now but still don’t have many followers or likes except your family and BFF? There is probably a reason for that.  I am talking about your business page, not your personal page.  It was easy to get followers there, you just invited all your high school friends and family and posted pictures about your cats or kids or the ice bucket challenge or something.

So why does your business Facebook page have only 10 Likes?  The reason is that you aren’t connecting with your customers.  You can do this the same way as you did with your personal page.  No, not by posting pictures of your cat, but by connecting with your customers and potential customers on a personal level.  Making your page interesting, appealing.  Making people not only want to “Like” it, but making it so they want to keep coming back to see what’s next.  That’s what this blog is all about.  Here are some screen shots of bad sites and good sites.  Can you tell which are which and why?  Until next time…
