Facebook Branding Window Opens at 25 Closes at 100

Posted by Carl E. Reid Friday, March 25, 2011 2 comments

If you just made that awfully smart move to create a Facebook business page, your opportunity to create a branded link is right around the corner. This allows for shortening that very long link Facebook assigned when you created your business page to http://Facebook.com/YourBrandName

Once 25 people "Like" your business page, Facebook opens the window so you can create a branded link.

Watch out!! Monitor your business page "Likes". Facebook closes the opportunity to create a much shorter branded link, once your page has 100 "Likes". Now you will be stuck with that ridiculously long link, which will take up every inch of space on your business card.

Some suggested steps to create buzz for acquiring new clients.  Similar to everyone in an organization having business cards, this tandem effort by all team members will produce a synergy in results.

1. Make sure the company blog is RSS enabled. That means the little orange chicklet should be visible on the blog. This allows people to channel in/out using their RSS readers. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. 
Having a blog with no RSS feed is like having a telephone with no dial tone. You can't communicate with the rest of the world. - Click here for RSS article details

Ask your web developer to flip the switch "On" for displaying the RSS chicklet on the blog.  Once this is completed, it sets the stage for "1 button publishing".  Publish a blog article. The article will automatically distribute to Twitter, Facbook and LinkedIn accounts for ALL
team members.

2. In preparation for
"1 button publishing", everyone on the team should have accounts on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.  You can hook your Twitter account into your Facebook and LinkedIn accounts.

3. Consider setting up a business page on Facebook.  Here's an article for details: New Facebook Changes Provides Best of Both Worlds -

Branding and marketing is the name of the game these days for both companies and individuals. Twitter, Facebook, blogs etc. are phenomenal tools for getting the word out about you or your company.   

Most social media tools are free.   Although you can do it yourself, engaging a social media consulting company allows you to work ON your business, not IN your business 

Have you heard about "one button" publishingWrite something once. Then it automatically goes viral globally to your Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, other social media accounts and Google (as in SEO search engine optimization).  Engaging a knowledgeable social media consultant eliminates a very steep learning curve for using those free tools.
