Facebook marketing is an essential part of your social media mix. This week’s lead article covers several excellent “rules” for effective marketing on the world’s #1 social network. PLUS, take a look at the notes I typed up from the opening keynote by Mark Zuckerberg and team at the 6th annual f8 Facebook Developer Conference! (Embedded below).
I have to say, I’m super excited about Facebook’s new MESSENGER BUSINESS – (coming soon!). Merchants will be able to use Messenger to interact directly with customers who make online purchases. Customers can ask merchants questions, buy additional items, track packages, receive (push) notifications about items, and more.
Facebook says, “We are RE-INTRODUCING PERSONAL back to online shopping!” Love that!
Btw, I’m publishing today’s post from the extraordinary Social Media Marketing World Day day #2, here in sunny San Diego! Wowee, what an amazing experience – 2,500 folks from around the world learning so much about digital marketing and building awesome relationships. If you’re not at the event or attending virtually, do check out all the amazing tweets for #SMMW15.
