Why Facebook Updates Are Essential!

Potential customers will base some of their early judgments of your company on the presentation and upkeep of your social media profiles.

If someone visits a Facebook page for a business that hasn’t been updated in a long time, they may think the business has closed. Or if your posts are often unrelated to your business, they may think you’re unprofessional.

Posting regular, relevant updates to your wall is an easy way to generate content that readers can see and connect with. However, it is often not enough to simply post to your own wall!

The best-run Facebook pages include regular interactions with readers in the comments section of posts, outward links to interesting stories, and embedded videos of relevant content.

For an example of a well-maintained Facebook page, check out Seamless. They post regularly and engage potential customers by asking questions and replying to each response. Here are some examples of excellent posts:
