Facebook’s Small Business Presence is Growing

At Black Tie Digital Marketing it is our goal to help your business grow. Engaging on social media is a core part of the strategy in order to enhance your brand’s online visibility. Once a platform known only for personal profile pages, Facebook has recently announced that it now hosts a whopping 30 million active small business pages.

In his recent Marketing Land column, Martin Beck explains that the current number of 30 million pages is up five million from last November. That’s quite an impressive growth pace. But what does this mean for small business owners? At first look, the numbers are encouraging because they imply Facebook is experiencing growth, which increases chances for engagement. On second thought, it means there is a growing number of small businesses competing for likes, follows, and–most importantly–customers. Staying true to your brand and having genuine conversations with consumers can help you stand out in the crowd… even a crowd of 30 million.

If you’re a small business owner looking to give your digital marketing efforts an upgrade, consider choosing Black Tie Digital Marketing as your Melbourne, Florida social media optimization team.
