12 More Benefits of a Facebook Business Presence

1. Increased Exposure to Potential Customers

It has over 1.19 Billion users.

2. You can share information about your business 

You can publicise your properties name, address and contact details, talk about your history, describe your property and services or any other aspect of your business as well as upload pictures and videos from your business. 

This can be a powerful way to communicate with your current customers and potential customers. 

3. Gather More Leads

You have the ability to gather leads in the form of email addresses. They can be added to your mailing lists and contact outside of Facebook.

4. Lower Your Marketing Expenses

Starting a Facebook business page can costs you $0.

Simply using photographs you take of your business will work -- and in some cases that are better than a creative image from a designer.

5. Reach a Targeted Audience

With Facebook ads, if you target correctly, you can reach your desired audience.

6. Use Facebook Insights

Using Facebook insights you can see:

• How many pages Likes you have

• The reach of my posts & page 

• Engagement of the page

• Post-Performance... and more

YouTube allows users to upload, view, rate, share, add to playlists, report, comment on videos, and subscribe to other users. It offers a wide variety of user-generated and corporate media videos. Available content includes video clips, TV show clips, music videos, short and documentary films, audio recordings, movie trailers, live streams, and other content such as video blogging, short original videos, and educational videos. Most content on YouTube is uploaded by individuals, but media corporations including CBS, the BBC, Vevo, and Hulu offer some of their material via YouTube as part of the YouTube partnership program. Unregistered users can only watch (but not upload) videos on the site, while registered users are also permitted to upload an unlimited number of videos and add comments to videos.
