    Just a thought to make a company Facebook. But don't know which is better or I don't know what is the advantage of Facebook page between an company account profile. Because in profile, you can also do or can gather more invitations from friends vs the FB page. So I'm little bit confuse and don't know what is the different between of the two.

    You can't do that as there already IS a company called Facebook and it's name IS trademarked and thus protected.

    So, make a company Facebook what???

    Then FaceBook is of NO use for whatever you hope to (ab)use it for.

    It's actually a company profile that it's in Facebook. Not a company Facebook.

    My purpose of Facebook is to voice out the company name and spread the product through social friends actually. That's why it thought me to have it one of the FB page or profile.

    Whether "Facebook" will be a viable source of potential customers or worth spending any time there all depends on what you do or sell.

    If your 'company' produces and sells underground septic tanks, .... don't bother with FaceBook, if you sell things that are predominantly for a "teen" age group demographic it could work quite well.

    But what you DO need to remember is that 'companies' do not have 'friends' only real people have friends.

    The client of my furniture company where I have worked out the project, is come from the Facebook. He is an interior designer; we work out some lots of projects already since 2012. He found the page through social network of the cummunity of Interior designers. Every year we landed such a sucessfull huge projects for the past years. I think you should know more about working out the social if requires about online marketing. 70% of my clients comes from the social, as they have visited the page and the group community of Dubai Design & Barcelona. The reason why the company didn't running out of projects because one of the strategies is "Social".
    If your not aware.

    Pointing back to your comment about
    If your 'company' produces and sells underground septic tanks, .... don't bother with FaceBook, if you sell things that are predominantly for a "teen" age group demographic it could work quite well.

    So I replied your facts.

    I think you mislead the threads.

    No I definitely don't mislead the threads, I may misread them occasionally but I do not deliberately lie to them.

    But what exactly does "septic tanks" have to do with "interior design".

    Sooooo, allow me to continue being extremely patronising and explain a bit about marketing.

    The FIRST RULE is "Know your audience" and evidently you don't, you simply 'got lucky'.

    Interior design and decorating IS and absolutely HAS a 'social aspect' simply because real people talk about interior 'design' all the time. THAT is what 'social' means. ... Things and topics that real people read about and talk about in their 'free' time.

    Moving on from that.

    Dentists can have a social aspect ... Accountants .... not so much. When did anyone ask YOU, [in a 'social' situation] to recommend an accountant?

    Carpet cleaning, .... Yes ... .... Street cleaning equipment ... not.

    And so on, ...


    If you do not know where the people that make up your target market can be reached your marketing efforts are inefficient, ineffectual and wasteful in time and possibly money.

    Oh! And.

    The comment regarding "Teen market" was because the FaceBook user demographic is predominately "teenagers", that will of course may change over the next fifteen years or so as todays teen-agers become "thirty-somethings" and the teens of that era don't want to be doing what their parents are 'into' and find something 'new'.

    I don't know, that's why I'm also want to ask about that seems we are only discussing about introducing the business name in the FB page.

    True.

    I don't know what is your point, the thread was just discussing about what should be recommended either of the FB page or the profile. BUt anyhow, I got what you mean but my cousin who is accountant got his job from the Facebook in his Accounting Facebook group community, he is a community member and someone recommend him to apply an available job. Now he works in the Hospital as Accountant. He just quit his previous job after he a good offer from the hospital.

    Yes correct. True. That's why it's also important to analyze where the market should be driven. Now a days, it's very important to engage as in any ways that could possible lead to the market.


    Yes. True. That's why it's important to search a community of the professionals where all profesionals are members. Just like my client Interior Furniture. They have seek from the FB page where the interior designers are members. They have landed a several projects already since the years started back then. Do not engage a people "teens" or "young youth" are members because you will end up just for just a "social". As we are aware that most young people have sign up for fun of this social sites. We have to know first before dealing a group or FB page if it's legit by reviewing them. This time while having Social in FB, can really help engage people from different profession from a different legit group. It's just you need to seek it a lot.

    You'll have to explain that because it doesn't really make sense.

    Why not??? If 'teens' ARE your target audience then that is EXACTLY where you should go

    Mate, you are just showing that your 'marketing' knowledge has been gained by reading the drivel that "experts" spread around, particularly the kind of "experts" that think if you want to advertise your web design business you should do so at a site where ALL the members web are designers.

    Doesn't make sense? After my cousin got his job from FB group community, after my client found their project from consultant designers in FB group ?
    Doesn't make any sense? Make your respond a little bit clear mate. Else i would be misinterpret you. Further knowledge about your point.

    I believe it needs to have a common sense too when engaging a market.
    As I mention before your reply, looking back my post.

    That's why it's important to search a community of the professionals where all profesionals are members. Just like my client Interior Furniture. They have seek from the FB page where the interior designers are members. They have landed a several projects already since the years started back then. Do not engage a people "teens" or "young youth" are members because you will...

    I might have stating about a "Professional audience". But you reply,
    Why not??? If 'teens' ARE your target audience then that is EXACTLY where you should go
    In a sense of marketing a teenage products, then you need to engage a "Social" where most links are young people.


    Correct. That's why it's important knowing the audience.

    all professionals are members of WHAT???????




    "Why not??? If 'teens' ARE your target audience then that is EXACTLY where you should go"

    If you actually read the post correctly, that comment is related DIRECTLY to the quoted text that is immediately above it. It is NOT intended to be taken out of that context.

    Please do NOT "skip read" and then comment on what you think it said.

    Mate. You forgot we were discussing about Interior design. That's the reason why i mention about professionals.

    What are you talking about, I am reffering since from the previous post about "Furniture". What are you talking about "Why not??? If 'teens' ARE your target audience..." Why do you still force or keeps mentioning about teens that to think that we already mentioning about Interior Design, and obviusely I already mention about professional interior designers since.

    You keep complaining about people are repeatedly posting some questions that have answer from prevoius post that even you still doing on it.

    Are you telling me? FYI, the reason why this thread gets more post cause you made certain post that you think you were right. And I, keeps leading you back to the subject.

    I don't think this is for me. You forgot that you have stated
    I may misread them occasionally...

    Again, the reason why this thread has more post cause I'm trying to lead you back where what we have discuss. Your replies are like triggering some more alibies that make our subject more complicated.

    Ermmm? Not specifically, ... The thread is about FaceBook and whether you should have a 'company' presence, it's not up to me to give you a definitive answer, simply because, having never tried using Facebook for that specific market sector makes me unqualified to give you a definite yes or no. So; the answers I provide for Facebook use in marketing are merely generalised based on experience and observations from other 'sectors'. So I shall repeat that advice for you, it being;

    If your business, market sector, 'theme', etc. etc. HAS a 'social' aspect, then Facebook has more potential for lead generation than if it was in a specialised or "business to business" marketplace.

    likewise;

    If your market sector is mainly 'teen' orientated then Facebook is a good place to be marketing

    You still seem to be of the opinion that I should give you specific answers regarding your queries, let me assure you, that unless you ask a specific question that allows a specific answer to be given you will NOT get a specific answer from me. Sure I will give you my opinion of whether your assumptions are correct or not and I will tell you if, in my opinion you are working from a faulty or incorrect premise, and after that, I fervently hope you will have the necessary drive to find out why I say you are wrong and start asking SPECIFIC questions.

    If you wish to read my opinions on web related topics you can do so at http://webmaster-talk.eu/articles and/or by reading at http://www.highrankings.com/forum/

    As I have said before, maybe not here but SEO/SEM is not a religion where you have to dispense with rational argument and free thinking, but just blindly accept what you are being told by a misogynistic, child molester in fancy dress [whoops did I say that out loud?] and believe it UTTERLY. This is the real world where you SHOULD question everything, believe nothing and trust no-one! And that includes me.

    SEO/SEM is a three step process of:

    Test. Check. Refine: Test. Check. Refine: Test. Check. Refine: and repeat ad infinitum.

    There is no one size fits all, every marketplace, every website, every URL is different and deserves your attention and when you are 'optimising' there is one word you need to remember, ... ... Remarkable!
