Thanks Glitterbox i shall have a read up of the rules and regs for the business facebook as you say it changes all the time i find it hard to keep up with being a bit tech phobic! good plan with the colour pops i have masses that i have never used so that sounds like a plan! do you get your pics for Shellac directly from Sweet Squared? i wanted to post up on my website and facebook page also. thanks for your help xxx
I post maybe once every couple of days- sometimes I go through phases of posting more. Yesterday for example I posted a pic of my nails and a pic of the new Shellac colours coming. Only around 1/4 of your likers see each post now they've changed how Facebook business pages work so I try to keep quite active to make sure there's more chance of being seen. I get the most response on pictures. I've just bought a bunch of nail pops so i can paint a heap of them with cool design ideas and post 1 a day for a while. For some reason despite my customers favouring plain colour on their own nails they do love a picture of something funky.
As far as I know those agencies that phone are a scam. On your business page you click on the 'build an audience' at the top and create an advert is in there. I set mine to 'get more page likes' then wrote out a wee ad in the space. I used an image of a set of my nails rather than my logo cos I found it caught more people's eye.
In the sponsored stories section I ticked both options
Then in choose you audience I went with 'town city'- Aberdeen, age 18-60, females, only people not connected
In the campaign & budget section I went with 2.50 per day (it uses the whole £2.50 but never more- I was so untrusting the first day I was waiting to be hit with a massive charge lol)
Untick run continuously and then you can choose the days. I went with 4 days as wanted to spend £10. I ran it from Friday at 7am to Monday at 11pm so it was covering 4 days-and stopping before midnight so it didn't charge me for Tuesday.
I got charged about a month after my advert ran.
Hope that helps! It gets a bit addictive checking your likes though! I've done it twice now and both times got 50-70 new likers from it. I made sure to be quite active on my page over the time as well posting photos etc.
