Create an interesting profile
Once you’ve set up your Facebook page you need to make sure that you’ve provided all of your business information to make a good impression to your audience, your profile is what your visitors will look for to read about information on your branding, so everything must be there, you can upload a short introductory video on your profile that tells your back story of how you started and what your business is all about, this is also a chance for you to showcase your products and services.
Interact with your audience
You need to make sure that your page is open to the public so that your target audience can visit anytime and view your posts. Get your audience to participate in your posts by starting a thread asking a question or include them in your decision making like asking for suggestions or tips, doing a live video is also a way for your customers to connect with you and get to know more about your branding, organize an event or run a contest, this is a good opportunity for brand exposure.
Be consistent in posting
