Develop Your Brand on Facebook

18 tools for branding on Facebook 18 Tools to Develop Your Brand on Facebook by Sig Ueland

A good overview with welcome tab (Pagemodo), promotions, chat, forum, offers, newsletter and monitoring.

My favorite tools are:

Pagemodo to build a good looking welcome app yourself the easy way.

TinyChat – create a chat room with video and give your (potential) fans the ability to start a chat with you and build trust.

Forum for Pages – a feature that used to be standard on each Facebook page. Now back, add a forum to your Facebook page.

This looks promising Fotobabble – will test it.

Apps for your newsletter opt in box on your Facebook business page MailChimp and Aweber

Use paid update promotion on Facebook

Why Facebook Is Letting You Promote to Your Fans and Why I Think You Should by John Jantsch (@ducttape)

Some strong points made by John in the post:

1) Selectively create posts related to your business, products and services that contain an emotional charge.

2) Make sure that said posts call people to sign up for something off Facebook

The surest way to make Facebook pay is to capture interest and sell off Facebook in your normal email marketing platform.

Your Facebook marketing routine should now contain one emotion packed lead capture status update a month that you can fully promote.

Learn how your brand is doing on the social networks and Facebook

I am also going to cover elements of the new social reports in Google Analytics, which can show you some really interesting data about your brand.

Is Facebook the best branding platform for you?

Why Twitter is the better branding platform Why Twitter Is a Better Brand Platform Than Facebook – 10 Reasons Twitter Will Be Huge For Business by B.L. Ochman (@whatsnext)

Interesting thoughts on why Twitter is a better branding platform than Facebook.

Here’s what I think today: it’s a stronger platform for advertisers than Facebook will ever be.

Marketers need to remember that Twitter is about give and take. If you just use it to pimp your stuff, you’ll be zapped in mid-tweet: blocked for good.

One of the 10 points B.L. Ochman makes:

5. The more you give, the more you get. If you follow the 12:1 rule – add value and help others 12 times, promote yourself once – you’ll get more than you give from others on Twitter.
