Sales and Marketing

Does Facebook really help drive sales in my business?

I think it hugely depends on your business and authenticity of your fan base. 

For example, I see brand pages with millions of likes and minimal engagement on their posts. I also see brand pages with limited fan base and really good engagement on their Facebook pages. So, as I said depends on business and organic likes. 

I totally agree with Russell, that it takes time to build your audience, but you can always test things on your page. And I recommend constantly testing. Post pictures and ask people if they want to buy, ask them to just comment "Buy" on the product image and you can personally send them invoices, this is all Lean Methodology and this process will be your MVP (minimal viable product). At least you will know if your fans are interested in your products or not.

Try this with different products, at different times, also try "Facebook Promote" post function, I have never been disappointed with this feature.

You can also try a free Facebook store and see if it drives sales at all. 

Disclaimer: I work for a company which builds Facebook stores.

Social Media

How do I create a social media strategy for my business?

Trying a Facebook store could be a decent option as well..its easy to set up and you can get rid of it easily, if it is not working for you.

Do you follow your competitors on social media?

I think you should not only follow your competition but also learn from things which are working for them. We at Exprestore, look at all the competitors product features all the time, we watch what they are promoting and what seems to be going viral.

I even go to twitter search and look them up, so as to gauge their engagements. 

One question which usually all informed clients/customers will ask is what is difference between you and your competitor? You gotta follow them to know how are you better or different..
