socialmedia scene that is. It now provides many businesses around the world the opportunity to expand their companies.
Facebook has started out as a way to connect students at one particular college. Fast forward approximately 10 years and it is now connecting people all over the world, which makes for a very happy business world. The ability to have such a luxury as Facebook is something that every up and coming business should take advantage of immediately.
When you are first starting out, you are looking for ways to expand and promote, but at a reasonable price. By reasonable, I mean free. Facebook is a very viable option for many reasons. It can promote your business while allowing you to connect with everyone you know. All you have to do is signup and create a profile for your business.
If you already have a personal account for Facebook, then you are aware of what it can offer you in terms of business; but, keep the two accounts separated. In no way should you ever consider having the same account for business and personal use. That is a nightmare come to life. Your personal life is just that, your personal life. It does not need to be linked with your business account--pages like these shouldn't exist. When you begin to mix your personal life with your business dealings, you start to become unstable and unorganized, which will lead to a loss of profit as well as developing a negative reputation.
If you are just starting to get your feet wet in the business world, the last thing you need is a negative reputation that will follow you everywhere you go. When you go to present yourself to investors, they will not be worried about the product. Instead, they will be worried about your personal life getting in the way of business and ruining their investment. In my opinion, if you have a Facebook account for business, do not add friends and family on it, leave it for associates and partners. The risk is too high to have someone slip up and say something on your page that was not meant for Facebook.
Facebook is now open for business. Make this partnership a successful one by taking care of business at all times and not letting anything get in the way of it.
