It is no secret that Facebook is a revolution in the way we market our businesses. People and businesses have never before been this closely connected and so engaged with each other.
The opportunities provided by this phenomenon has been incredible. I am even willing to say that before Facebook, many businesses who are flourishing right now, would not have survived their first few months. As with most opportunities, there are some drawbacks…
The widespread, almost “for granted” adoption and implementation of Facebook Pages amongst small businesses have made it harder to stand out, and represent your brand in an accurate, interesting way. So we are forced to be more creative, more engaging and more remarkable in everything we do.
Managing to do this on Facebook has unfortunately not been the simplest task. Especially if you are a photographer and not a computer programmer, or don’t have a “web-guy” as a very good friend! The time it takes to implement creative ideas on a custom Facebook Page can make it a daunting task – not even considering trying to stay up to date with the ever present Facebook changes and updates that can render your creative hard work non-functional in the blink of an eye.
On the KIKI Facebook Page, you might have noticed some features (here and here) that could seem very advanced and probably required the skills of someone who builds websites for a living… Truth be told, these “custom apps” were created within minute, by a couple of mouse clicks! We started using a tool called Ripe Social to explore what is posible with Facebook pages. I was delightfully surprised, even though we have only started to scratch the surface! (There are 11 Apps available, helping you to use Facebook to show your portfolio, videos, workshops, newsletter sign up, blog posts, run competitions etc…)
It is simple, creative, flexible and quick. Those reasons alone should be enough to get you to sign up ASAP. If you need a further push, for the month of May only, you can get a whopping $25 off the normal $99 annual subscription that gives you access to ALL the available apps and any new apps to be released in the future. That is $74 for 12 months, 11 apps, no programming, no effort, no geek talk!
