If you’ve ever thought about using Facebook to grow your business only to write it off – this may be the most important article you read this year.
My goal for this article is for you to see that yes, you can use Facebook to grow your business.
As people look at what I do they often comment that we know it works, we hear about Facebook marketing from you and you’re an expert, and we’re hearing success stories from others in our industry, but I just don’t know if I can do it and if Facebook marketing will work in my business.
If you’ve read many of my articles, or watched my videos, or heard me speak, you know that in the past I was in an ordinary business. About as ordinary as you could get.
I owned a Specialty Food Store.
We had a website and eventually an email list but not much more for years.
I was interested in computers and using the internet for marketing but I couldn’t figure out how the internet could get the average person to choose our store over one of our competitors.
Over time and lots of trial and error, we developed a system that worked for us in the grocery industry. We tested it in other industries and it worked there too.
In the spring of 2012, I decided it was time to leave the grocery business behind and go into helping other businesses succeed online using Facebook Marketing.
It was a tough decision, but I’m enjoying what I get to do now: Help other businesses succeed!
Since 2012 we’ve expanded the list of industries that we’ve worked in.
In this article, I listed some of the industries and a small bit of information about each.
Over the next few weeks, I’m going to go in depth with each of these industries to show you what we’ve accomplished for these businesses and how you can do it too.
I have offered a wide sampling of businesses here so that you see that even though your business is different, it’s not that different from one of these.
I suggest you read the entire list and then click on the link to the business that Is most like yours. Each week I’ll offer access to one of the businesses below so be sure to bookmark this post and check back often!
