Tuesday Tip – What small business owners SHOULD do

ID-10079666Tuesday Tip – if you are a small business owner, you SHOULD be doing this!

Backstory – for a few years I was a La Leche League leader. During training it was oft repeated that we needed to meet people where they were and help them as was best for them (meaning, no matter how much you wanted to tell someone “THE ONE RIGHT WAY” to do something, you needed to remember that there really isn’t one right way for most things).

I try to continue to live that (and I hope I do) but DANG it – sometimes there ISone right way” to do something.

  • Did you know that there are 1.44 *BILLION* (that’s billion with a B people) on Facebook?
  • Did you know that on averagem Smartphone users check Facebook about times per day?
  • Did you know there’s an incredibly EASY way for you to have your friends find your business page?



First, you need to have a Facebook business page. Once you have that, you can go into your personal Facebook profile and edit it so that your business page can be easily accessed from your personal page.

After that, all your “real-life” friends can actually FIND your Facebook business page.

SOCIAL TIP: One consultant I know didn’t do this UNTIL after she had a strong Facebook publishing plan and a month’s worth of posts. Then she invited not only her clients and prospects to “like” her page, she also invited her family and friends to “like” her page. Now, in addition to getting referrals from her business associates, she also gets referrals from her college classmates, neighbors, and former coworkers.
