Building up your presence on on the site can offer significant advantage to get an audience towards your Facebook Page or your website. Here are some smart tips for marketing on Facebook –

Do you want visitors to stick to your Facebook Page only or do you wish make them subscribe to your website for more updates? Depending on your business perspective, set a goal.

So, put a good mix of entertaining posts with hilarious pictures, inspiring stuff, niche-related posts along with links that take your readers to your website.

Pushing out ‘Facebook Offers’ is a good way to promote a deal to your Facebook uses. You can give away an ebook, an e-coupon or a discount that they can avail by going to your brick and mortar store.
