Facebook fan/business pages are dead unless you pay to advertise

Zero people saw this Facebook post!

Facebook Business Pages are Dead

That’s it. I’m calling it.  I’ve been saying this ever since Facebook changed it’s algorithm after going public. And now the results of posting on a fan page have dropped to a point I didn’t think was possible. Here’s more proof. If you have the time and money to advertise on your fan page you may get more engagement/sales/attention/etc. But for the time being, organic reach has disappeared. These pages are great as yellow pages ads, though.

If you’ve got a great following – you’re getting tons of natural engagement because you have a fun following – for example, Keep Portland Weird has a page that regularly gets their posts shared like crazy. They are probably a perfect fit for Facebook. But for small businesses, I think it’s now a waste of time to post on your page.

This is why I’m continuing to place more and more of my time and effort into email marketing. I wrote about this decision a little while ago, here.

Though I’m down on business pages, I still think Facebook is good for a few things. It’s an excellent networking tool. Here are 5 Facebook Surprises.

Facebook Fan/Business Page Class in Portlandia – March 30th

Facebook Class

Facebook fan/business pages are a great marketing tool for your business. On March 30th fan pages are all being transitioned to Timeline.

Let’s come together and learn

  • how to update our fan pages
  • fan page best practices
  • fan pages – backend (adjust settings)
  • creating events
  • the difference between fan pages and personal profiles
  • Social Fixer. What it is and why I recommend it!

and have your other Facebook/social media questions answered.

The class is part presentation and part lab and also a great place to network with other small business people.

Class fee $20 – trade also considered. Snacks and tea provided. Feel free to bring your lunch.

If you have any questions, feel free to post them in the comments below.

Please create a fan page before the class so you’ll have something to work with in class.

Here is information I sent to my clients recently about Facebook changes.

Hello,

There are about to be some big changes to Fan Pages/Business Pages (same thing) on Facebook. If you haven’t already noticed, fan pages are being switched (like personal pages) to Timeline. Here is a little video about the change.

Also, there are a few articles floating around that go into deeper detail about what these changes mean for you and your business.

Here are some examples of how one might design a decent Fan Page given the new Timeline platform.
