Your customers and contacts that have liked your pages, likely want to see your updates, especially if you sharing great deals on your Facebook page. It would be highly beneficial to you as a business owner and to them as a consumer to have easy access to viewing your pages and to see when updates are made to their favorite pages. So here is a few steps to take for yourself, and to share with your contacts to help your visibility.
To begin with, you need to click the HOME button at the top right side of the page. Now, on the left hand column, scroll down to your Lists section. Across the column (about 1 1/2 inches) from the word Lists if you scroll over it the word MORE becomes clickable. Click More. When the page with all of your lists comes up, click Create A List at the top right hand side of the window. In the window that opens up type a name for your list. I used the name Favorite Pages. Click Create List and this window will close and you will have a screen that says "Add Friends to this list to See their updates." The Add Friends portion is clickable, click it and another window will open. It will show pictures of all of your friends. ON the top left of this window is a clickable box that says Friends by default with a small blue arrow next to it. Click the blue arrow and then select Pages. Now select which pages you would like to add to this list. You can select any of the pages that you have liked and then click done. (There is a video here that explains how to make the change, if you are a visual learner.)
Now anytime you would like to view the updates from your favorite pages, you can click Lists and select it from the list. If you select it often, it will show up on your left hand side bar and will show you anytime there are updates.
It is worth sharing with your viewers. If you have 300 people that like your page and none of them are receiving your updates, than the likes are not necessarily beneficial. But if you have 100 people who like your page and they are all viewing your updates, then your name is out there and people are talking about you.
I have been trying to keep an eye on how the upcoming Timeline Changes will affect Business pages, and once I have that figured out, I will be sure to share anything I can with you. (Here is one change you may want to read about) In the mean time, if you need help getting your Facebook Page set up, or would like a landing page created for your page, be sure to contact me and we can work out your options. You can view my Facebook page to see a Landing page at work. If you have your page all done and ready and need help getting content to include on your page, Anita Kelley is a great resource. She and her team can write content for you, post them on Facebook for you and so much more. If you contact her, be sure to let her know that Jaidi sent you her way!
