Here are Post Planner’s Ravi Shukle’s 10 Bad Habits to Break on Facebook Today

 

 

 

 

 

1. Not responding to fan comments & posts

  • The success of your page depends on the content AND your community.
  • Do your best to interact with your fans — give good advice & help solve their problems.
  • Respond to all comments in a timely manner, ideally within 24 hours.

 

 

2. Immediately asking other pages to like your page in return

  • Connect with others online & interact with different pages.
  • This is an important part of building relationships & networking on Facebook.
  • When asked about your business, yes, by all means share your page.
  • Then you have a more genuine interaction with a targeted, engaged fan who will likely join your community.

 

 

3. Closing your page’s wall

  • Closing your Facebook wall means missing out on the chance to interact with your fans.
  • Remember, you want your fans to ask questions.
  • Their opinions matter.
  • Opening your wall to comments will show you’re a business who cares & listens to its customers.

 

 

4. Posting your page’s link on other pages or in comments

  • It’s important to take pride in your business.
  • You’ve put in a lot of hard work & want to tell the whole world about your passion.
  • Provide value by helping other pages in your niche with useful tips & advice.
  • Members of other communities will see this & they’ll naturally visit your page to find out how you can help them.

 

 

5. Always being salesy

  • Successfully promoting your business on Facebook takes balance.
  • Hook your audience with content that educates, entertains & inspires — and then weave in a post now & then that sells.
  • Your audience will happily receive your sales-related posts when properly engaged with other kick-ass content that keeps them in the know.
  • The “80/20 rule” is a good place to start.
  • Make 80% of your content valuable for your fans by sharing article links, infographics, funny memes & status updates.
  • The other 20% of the posts can be salesy & promotional.

 

 

6. Hiding your identity

  • Customers in the digital age are more open to responding to people they like, know & trust.

Showcase the human side of your page by:

  • Signing comments with your name
  • Highlighting your personality in your updates
  • Telling fans what’s going on in your personal life

You’ll build stronger relationships with your fans when they know there’s a real person on the other side.

 

 

7. Tagging everyone you know in every post

  • If you tag someone in a post, depending on their profile settings, their community might see it.
  • But you should end this bad habit immediately.
  • Tagging people in posts that aren’t relevant to them is both spammy & annoying.
  • Make sure the content relates to the people who are tagged.
  • Rather than feel put-upon by what you share, the people you’re tagging will actually welcome deeper involvement in your Facebook community.

 

 

8. Posting too much

  • How many posts are too many?
  • Take a look at your page insights to see the best times to post & when your community is most active.
  • Test different content at different times to see what works best for your fans.

 

 

9. Linking Facebook & Twitter

  • Keeping the two accounts separate lets your business have a more open dialogue with your community in formats your fans & followers are used to.

Here are three reasons why this strategy will not prove effective for your page:

  • Twitter has a 140 character limit whereas Facebook allows more than 63,000
  • Facebook & Twitter each use different language (Like versus RT)
  • Once linked, you have no choice about which posts are duplicated, since all updates are posted automatically

 

 

10. Ignoring page Insights

  • Whether you want Likes, more Web traffic or people to register for a contest, Facebook Insights is the key to getting the most from your page & building your online community.

Businesses that ignore or neglect Insights miss out on the ability to:

  • track their content
  • see what age, gender & demographic their fans are
  • see where their fans are from/located
  • better target Facebook ads
  • and much more

So check your Insights regularly to ensure your page & strategy meet the needs of your audience.
