“No, no, no!” I stared at the screen frozen in disbelief and felt my heart skip a beat. I was refreshing my browser on my Twitter page when my followers and those I’d followed suddenly went from around 1,000 each to 0 and 1.

Updates to Facebook that will boost Your Brand Awareness Strategy!

Posted by Andrea Hewett on Tue, Feb, 03, 2015 @ 16:02 PM

Facebook has had a lot of buzz lately with changes they are making that will supposedly make it nearly impossible to promote your business, especially without paying. They want to keep the site more social than business so that people won’t get tired of all of the sales pitches and go hang out somewhere else. This is actually a great thing for your Company! If the users are happy with their experience, then when they do notice a reference to your Business, they will respond more favorably to it.

To coordinate the efforts to bring people to your business via the web, telephone, or in person, the modern business now has to move past just having a website; they must move into social media.
