A friend posted a complaint about people who “friend” her on Facebook (FB) and immediately post a public note on her wall inviting her to “like” their business Facebook Page.

It is good to have a Facebook Page if you have business because our profiles are for non-commercial use. I look at FB like going to a party where you're meeting new people and catching up with old friends. If you lead with “Hey I wanna sell you something”, no one is gonna keep talking to you.

You can use the tool on your Facebook Page to invite your friends to like your Page in a less pushy way. If you are trying to build followers from your friends list, I suggest using this tool to invite them. If you think someone is really interested in your product or services, then private message them as opposed to posting on their wall. Posting on their wall is like busting in the door at THEIR party and announcing you are selling your car. The majority of people will just think you are rude and they won't care about your product or business and that is not what any of us are trying to accomplish.

Here's a handy dandy video showing you how to invite friends to like your Facebook Page:

Before you post, use the “party rule”! If you wouldn't act that way at a party, then don't do it on social media :)

I hope you enjoyed today's post!
