There is an excellent chance that the competition in your business has decided to take advantage of using the social media platform Facebook to elevate their business. But what about you? Does your company need to be on Facebook? Will Facebook help or hinder your business?

Here are some things to consider when you are trying to answer this question.

You Need to Understand the Platform

When you need to decide whether or not your business should be doing business on Facebook, you need to understand how Facebook operates. You need to get familiar with how it works and what you can do within to make it a useful tool for your business. If you do not take the time to learn about how Facebook operates you will not find it to be a tool that you can use for your business.

Stay Focused and Make Connections

If you are going to make Facebook work for your business, you need to stay focused on business-related tasks. You need to make sure that if you are on your business page, then you are working on something related to your business. You also need to make meaningful connections while on Facebook. You need to find not only potential clients but other people in your industry that can help you with running your business to the best of your abilities. Once your FB business page gets off the ground, then your FB page will have that snowball effect as it grows.

Post Great Content and Keep it Unique

You need to make sure that you are posting unique and original content when you are on Facebook. You need to make sure that you are offering something through your content that nobody else is so that people are excited to see what you have to offer next. You want to keep people interested so that they keep coming back to your Facebook page. If you are writing content for your FB page, then it can be a challenge keeping people engaged, it has to be done, if not, then there is no reason to signup to FB just because it seems to be cool, which is not a good approach to running a business: if you are not going to put good tools to good use, then why even have them for no reason?

If you keep these things in mind, you may have a much more straightforward time in making sure you know if your business should be on Facebook or not. Do not think you need to signup for every social media account under the sun, having multiple social media accounts will be of little use to your business if they are not used in a proper manner, and running your business may have its own set of problems, right?

I think creating a facebook page for your business no matter how big or small it is, is a great idea. Some people create a profile which I think is a terrible thing to do. People will react better to a facebook page because all you have to do is like and all is good. Also, your content will reach more people compared to a facebook profile cause people who haven't liked your page are going to be able to see everything so long as any of you friends have liked it.

Facebook appears to be popular in todays digital age of social media, and even so just as popular if you are going to put your business on Facebook, and if you are looking to run Facebook ads, then you will need to put a facebook pixel on your site so Facebook can start collecting data so that you can target the right audience, however, if you do not put FB Pixel on your site, then it is like flying blind, and you will be just throwing your ad money in the trash. If you are looking into setting up Facebook ads, then visit youtube, and you will find numerous videos on setting up Facebook ads.

One of the benefit of putting your business on facebook is that you will get the chance
to have a wide audience and better promotion for your products. It will also help you get more costumers/buyers even from other cities or country. But one of the problem that can be faced by online sellers are those bogus buyers who keep placing orders for COD but no plan to pay or receive the product.

I think all businesses needs to be on Facebook if not on any other platform because of the number of people on Facebook and the daily activities there.people are more engaging on Facebook and more countries are there too.So it better to have ones business advertised there.

Facebook is like a free advertisement and promotion for your product. I cannot see any factor of not putting your business into facebook. You can get more sales if many people will be able to see your business, even your friends can help you share your products or services with their friends.

I think its important for all businesses these days. Most of the business being advertised on Facebook and if one doesn't take help of Facebook than it may not get that much traffic and won't be able to make much profit and even need to employ other ways to advertise which can be costly.

Every business, whether it is online or offline, needs to be on facebook. Facebook with 2 billion accounts is the world's third largest website in terms of daily traffic. It is also number one social networking site. You can tap on that user base and reach wide audience.

I think we need to be on Facebook to capture the customers who are far situated from us as its not easy to reach all of them and Facebook helps us do that.

It's a great place and that's why we are seeing all creating facebook pages for their business, even if its helping or not they are still interested in trying it. I am seeing even smaller fast food shops creating pages on Facebook.

I agree. Taking advantage on facebook’s popularity should always be considered for ones business. This way one will be able to have better reach for people around the world. The higher number of people to see your business, the higher number of potential costumers will be.

It does help a great deal as sometimes when we search Google for something they will show us the results in Facebook so if we are not on Facebook then this can affect us.

It is one of the best and free way to advertise a business. If you have a lot of friend, you can ask a favor from them to help you share your page. It is an easier start than to pay for ads, but that can follow soon if one can afford the payment.

I think all do that. When they create new page or campaign they start inviting friends and requests them to invite further their friends.

Facebook is like an all in one social media sites. It is not mainly for entertainment or being connected with family and friends. People nowadays chose facebook for business because it is much easier than setting up a website for your business. As starter, one need to think of a way where he/she can save for promotion, and facebook is very useful for that part.

Yes, I feel one should advertise on Face Book about one's business may it be then online one or offline one for the following reasons:
1. This cab be done for free of cost.
2. You are exposing your advertisement to large number of audience at a single place.
3. Your advertisement reaches them personally.
4. There are every chances that your actives followers can turn into your customers.
5. You always have chance yo update the advertisement as per the need of the hour for free of cost.
There is no harm in trying to promote any business on Face Book!

I think these days things are changing. Most people like to check Facebook first to see if a certain company has its Facebook page and do they update it periodically as well.
