Despite having been around since 2004, many people continue to look past Facebook marketing as a valuable tool. This couldn’t apply more to business owners and managers, who often see Facebook marketing as confusing and pointless.
The truth is that Facebook marking is a valuable tool but only when utilized properly. It’s not difficult to utilize Facebook from a marketing standpoint — the only necessity is to regularly post interesting, intriguing and engaging content.
Yet even though Facebook pages are so simple, many people make one common mistake: creating a page and letting it sit. When it comes to Facebook marketing, remember that having a Facebook page doesn’t necessarily mean people are seeing it.

Just as you thought you were getting your head around social media, Facebook has made it more difficult for you to target prospective diners. But spending a little will deliver big returns, writes Ken Burgin.
People are frustrated that ‘free’ promotion on Facebook doesn’t work anymore. But most of your Facebook fans never saw your posts. Until last year, about 20 percent of what you put on your page was seen by them, but now it’s just a fraction of that. In 2015 and going forward, if you really want to be seen, you’ll have to pay. In fact, the options for targeted ads to reach exactly the people you want are much more exciting than the random results of free posting.
