Facebook Marketing has become the primary form of advertisement for many people, organizations and businesses. If you think that using Facebook Marketing is a waste of time, you need to think again. With so many people on Facebook, 500 million members, the potential of well rehearsed Facebook Marketing Strategies is unlimited.
If you go to Facebook statistics you are going to see why using the following Facebook Marketing Strategies is going to help you and your business grow. Look at these staggering numbers:

Enough preamble, let's get started
First of all you need an account on Facebook.
You may think that I am kidding here, I know this is obvious but if you are like many people out there you are going to create an account with a pseudo name. The one thing that you need to remember when using these Facebook Marketing Strategies is that Facebook is a social media site, a social networking arena, not a business website. No one is here to be sold anything and what people want is to make connections.
So, when I say you need a Facebook account I mean you need to add your personal Facebook account, with your name, your personal bio, and a picture of YOU !, not your dog, not your organization's logo, not your favorite cartoon. You need to make yourself personable, someone real, with a life, with issues, with a family. The only exception to this rule are companies whose name is nationally recognized, such as Victoria Secrets or very big organization who have a spokesman.
When you set up your account make sure to include: a bio with things that are personal and things that are related to your niche, a picture your picture and contact information. The one thing to keep in mind is that you are going to be connecting with people, real human beings and what you are going to practice is Attraction Marketing.
These Facebook Marketing strategies are focused on making you or at least portraying you as a niche or market leader. People who are looking for something always look for the guru, for the expert, with these strategies you are going to become that person, the one that other individuals want to become friends because because of what they can gain from you.
