Facebook pages for Business/Fan Page Creation<

For many businesses, having a presence on Facebook and trying to building a good presence on online success. This has brought about a large increase in the number of businesses reaching out through Facebook marketing.

To participate as a business on Facebook you will want to set up a Facebook business page – also called a fan page – that is separate from your personal Facebook page. This page will allow you to market your business on Facebook to loyal customers who “like” you as well as to potential new customers who find your page through their friends or outside sources, like your website. Once you’ve created a Facebook business page, the sky is the limit in terms of your Facebook marketing strategy. You can offer deals and coupons, show off new products, offer incentives for people to stop by your physical store, or any other pitch that will make your facebook fans your facebook customers.

Google+ profile & page improvements

Google spend lots of time listening to users feedback, and Mar 5, 2013, They launched some profile and page updates that Google Plus users are asking for. These include:

– A new tab for your Local reviews. In addition to your photos, +1’s and YouTube videos, there’s now a place for all your Local reviews. Highlight your favorite restaurants, or hide the tab completely via settings — it’s completely up to you.

– An easier way to edit your info. The ‘About’ tab now consists of separate cards (like Story, Places, and Links) — each with its own prominent edit link. As always: you can share specific fields with specific circles, or keep them just for you.

– Bigger cover photos, with a better aspect ratio. Cover photos are much larger than before (up to 2120px by 1192px), and they display in 16×9 when fully expanded. This way more images can be used as cover photos, and there’s more room for your selection to shine.
