Building Your Brand While Marketing on Facebook

Social media in 2010 will cease being the shiny new object

and instead, become part of the everyday lexicon of business.

I’ve been marketing my Child Care Business on facebook since 2009 and I must say that social media has increased my Business exposure. Furthermore, I love the fact that it is free advertising!

  Does  your childcare business have a  Facebook Page?  If not, are you wondering why you should market your business on Facebook?

Here is a great reason.…According to the Facebook press room, there are over 500 million active users  and people spend over 700 billion minutes per month on Facebook. Furthermore, 70% of  Facebook Users are outside of the United States and this increase your chances of doing business on an international level.

Having  a Facebook  page for your business is not only free, but it is a great way to market your child care program online and build your brand.  I challenge you to market Your Business on Facebook daily.

Why daily? Repetition and Consistency is one of the keys to building a strong brand for your Business!

There is no longer a need to spend hundreds of dollars on advertising, when you can advertise your childcare business for Free on Facebook.

Here are 3 effective ways to build your business brand while marketing your business on Facebook:

  1. Share photos of classroom activities at least once a day. This sends the message that your program is an educational place for young children. (get parents permission to share photos)
  2. If you are enrolling, be sure to only promote that you have openings at least once a week and add an now enrolling image for parents to share with their Facebook friends. (You don’t want to spam your followers)
  3. Be sure to share only quality photos and do a spell check before posting a status
  4. Only post information that is related to your childcare business or parenting (it will help to build your brand)
  5. Consider Investing in Facebook ads. You can get advertising for as little as $5 and it will reach up to $2,000 (targeted) people.
