Flowers, Epidurals, and Facebook
On a more important note, I just discovered a wonderful blog. Many of you probably are already familiar with Handmadeology, but I was not. I found it as I usually find these things, through another person’s blog. I signed up for the blogs e-mail so I don’t miss anything. The post that I found so helpful was this one about how to use your Facebook “like” page. I have had one of these FB business pages forever but I could never figure out how to get people to “like” me. I didn’t want to spam my friends and family with an all out message since many of them are just not that into jewelry, including mine!
So I have crawled along with less than 50 something “likes” for a very long time. I also could never figure out how to leave comments using my business page avatar rather than my regular facebook avatar. They do not make it easy to connect these two pages. But the article taught me how to do that and how to toggle back and forth between the two pages. So helpful! Turns out that if you comment on other people’s “like” pages using your “like” page avatar, they can “like” you back. Who knew? I am sure you all know that but I did not. I find it difficult to keep up with all the social media even though I know how important it is to me and my business.
The one thing I wish is that I could use my “like” identity to comment on my friends and family pages. That way, if they want to “like” me they can and I won’t feel like I am being a pest. But you cannot comment on their posts if they do not “like” your fan page. Kind of a catch-22 if you ask me.
Going back on the ice now and taking it easy. No bead making today………..
