What’s Better?

Many businesses now have a Facebook page (if you don’t you should call us, but I digress.) Once you hit 25 “Like-rs” you can get a custom URL for your page (like www.facebook.com/cellcon.)

BUT let me ask you this: When advertising your Facebook page, which would you (as a customer) remember more:

www.facebook.com/companyname (and that’s if it’s available. If someone else has a similar name you’ll have to think of something else) ¬† OR

www.yourcompany.com/facebook?

I think the 2nd option. It reinforces¬†your brand name by putting YOU first and it’s incredibly easy to do. Just create the page (or have us do it for y0u) and forward it to your FB. Page.

Other advantages?

  • You can’t have a Facebook custom URL until you hit 25 “fans”; you can do this immediately.
  • It doesn’t matter if someone else has “your” URL.

What do you think?

Today’s Tip of the Day

This morning (very early this morning!) I left for a networking meeting as a substitute for a regular member. I’ll do these occasionally in addition to the group that I am a member of.

So, after a nice breakfast, many cups of coffee and an hour or two of networking, I leave with a stack of new business cards and connections.

Here’s the tip – My next step was to log in to LinkedIn and add these new contacts as connections. That’s what LinkedIn is about, right? Business Networking, right? So, why do so many people skip this important step?
