9. Get Started with Digital by Being Active

Creating a Facebook Business Page is only the first step to engaging with your customers. You will need to be active to be able to market your page and grow an audience.

Post frequently: New and frequent posts tell your fans and followers that you’re active, legitimate and care about them as customers. Old or expired posts could imply that your business is closed or isn’t invested in its customers. Use post scheduling to create posts in advance so your Page remains fresh, even when you’re away.
Post content that your followers will care about: The more relatable your content is, the more you’ll be able to connect with your audience. Potential customers who see content that matters to them may be more likely to become fans of your Page or trust your business.
