13 Practical Facebook Marketing Tips from Successful Founders

See also

Last month, Twitter had a wildly successful IPO but our data shows Facebook is really where it’s at (at least for website owners).

The dominant social network, unsurprisingly, drives the most social traffic to websites. With well over 1 billion monthly active users who like, share and comment on posts on their feed, Facebook has a ridiculously large and highly engaged user base.

That’s exactly why you need to use Facebook for your business. But frankly, with all the “Definitive Guides” and “How-Tos” suggesting you use Facebook one way or another, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and ultimately fail at Facebook marketing.

That’s why we asked 13 successful founders and members of the Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC), an invite-only organization comprised of the world’s most promising young entrepreneurs, to share their best practical tips for driving traffic to your content from Facebook. Here’s what they had to say.

  1. Think Context
  2. Give Them What They Want
  3. Simplicity, Color, Call to Action
  4. Ask for the Share
  5. Love and Laugh
  6. Make It Exclusive
  7. Get a Following First
  8. Be Brief But Interesting
  9. Post a Short Message and Cool Picture
  10. Appeal to Vanity
  11. Write Intriguing Article Titles
  12. Venture Off Your Own Wall
  13. Take Advantage of Ads
