					To succeed in business nowadays concrete plan should be made at first. This plan includes defining of
what products or services that proprietor is capable of creating within his expertise. Capital; it doesn’t
necessarily mean big amount of money, for anyone can start up a business with the use of handful
strategies. Chances are when the business has no effective system to follow it would end up in shamble.
No matter how big the capital or excellent the product is, still the best way and the determining factor that
would lead the business to success is the effort exerted towards marketing. Marketing is the life blood of
business and is the major area where most of the companies are putting in much of their money just to
get ahead of the stiff market competition. Print ads, radio and TV commercials are where the mainstream
companies slashing a big chunk from their budget, just imagine how big the money wasted that supposed
to go as profit. How about the small industry players or those who just operate business at home? Is there
still a chance that awaits them?
Good thing there is Facebook. The leading social networking sites boasts with members of over 5oo
million and still growing is the new platform proven to be effective as a marketing tool. Take it this way,
facebook is a market where window and real shoppers go. The members hold a potential to become one
of the product users. There are a lot of strategies that could be done using facebook. Just to share the
basics, one has to create a profile first. The profile should bear all the information necessary for others
users to determine who you are to the products you are marketing. This is very important to create a
friendly connection to the other users. The profile should be filled with complete contact details wherein
they can reach you in the quickest time possible, it could be your business email address or landline and
mobile number. You can now start adding friends by target, this is time demanding when done manually
but there are auto friend adder software out there that can make this done in real time. Upload the most
appealing photos of the product. If you think the number of friends is enough then you can start the
process of marketing. You can start it by posting messages to your friend’s wall or sending them private
messages. Take note that facebook is intentionally made for people to have fun while creating a network
of friends. Do not be too obvious on pushing the product; do marketing as though you are just up for
friends rather than raiding someone else pocket.
