Facebook is the best place to start building your brand online. To start promoting your brand with Facebook, you need a Facebook Page. In this article, we will share some of the experts’ opinions on building your Facebook page.

Setting Up your Facebook Page:

Before you start getting likes for your page, it very important to make a presentable Facebook page beforehand. Follow these steps.

1. Get a Professional designer for your Facebook Page

The easiest way to do this is by hiring someone in Fiverr.com. Simply search “facebook page design” in Fiverr to see hundreds of people offering that job for $5.

2. Optimize your Facebook Page Info

  • Engaging profile picture, cover image, and short description.
  • Tell people who you are and what do you do by providing complete and accurate info in your Facebook page. (Fill in all the information fields accurately)
  • Post engaging content
    • Engaging, interesting and entertaining content.
    • Videos
    • Images
    • Tips
    • FAQ
    • Enouncements
    • Offers

Getting Facebook Likes

Now that you have your amazing Facebook page set up, you have to get people liking your page. Follow these steps:

1. Initial likes

Initial likes are very important. This kind of likes is not necessarily from the people who matter to your business. You need these likes to make your page more presentable when you start promoting your page to people who really matter to your business. (You don’t want them to see a zero-likes page, do you?).

To get your initial likes:

  • Invite your friends.
    • When you create a page, Facebook will give you an opportunity to invite all your friends to like your page. This is a one-time opportunity (after which you need to manually search your friend’s name to invite them). Make sure you use this opportunity to invite all your friends. When this opportunity is no longer available to you, you need to do a manual invite. To do this, you can share your page in your timeline and make a cordial request asking your friends to like it. Tell your friends honestly that you need their like as “initial likes”. Additionally, you can also send private messages to your friends.
  • Buy Likes
    • If you don’t mind spending some money for boosting your initial likes, you can get your first thousands likes from a trusted company, boostlike.com. Boostlike.com is a safe like provider, which is being used by big brands like Lenovo, SONY, EPSON and Mercedes-Benz.

2. Targeted likes

Targeted likes are likes from people of your target audience. These are the people who matter to your business. Targeted likes can be divided into two main categories, organic and paid.

  • Organic Targeted Likes
    • Organic likes refers to likes that programmatically driven by Facebook or any search engines to your Facebook page. You can obtain this by actively and constantly creating contents that useful to your target audience. Learn more about this here: Boostlike.com
  • Paid Likes
    • Paid likes are likes that you obtain by running Facebook Ads. Facebook Ads enables you to pay to target your adverts to the exact people you would like to connect with. Learn more about Facebook Ads HERE.

Doing all of the above right, you are now all set-up to grow and maintain your brand.

Good Advertising Practice for Sabahsell Users

Tips June 17, 2016

Good Advertising Practice for Sabahsell Users

Here are some useful tips for a better result of your advertisement in Sabahsell.

Category

Select the most relevant category for the item that you are advertising. Our categories are structured by Main Category and Sub-category. Picking the right category will help in-site users to find your ad more easily either by manual searching, by google searching or by our built in search engine.

Title

Giving the right title for your ad is perhaps the most important aspect of your advertisement. The title of your ads must describe your item as accurately as possible. Your title is the most important part for human users and search engine to find your ad.

Bad: Car Rental Service Kota Kinabalu
Good: Car Rental Service In Kota Kinabalu And All Over Sabah for RM120/day

Bad: Simkad Toneexcel
Good: Ejen Simkad Toneexcel di Kota Kinabalu Mencari Rakan Niaga di Seluruh Sabah dan Malaysia

Because you can post as many ads as you like (but not spamming, we do not tolerate spam), you can advertise the same item with different title and description to suit the expectation of your potential buyer.

Contact information

Do not forget to include your contact information, be it a telephone number, email, or website. Very simple. There is no point doing advertisement if people who interested in it cannot find a way to reach you.

Tags

Tag is a helpful way to make it even easier for visitors to find your ad. For example, if your item is a “preloved” (used) item, you might want to tag it with the word “preloved”. This way, a visitor that specifically interested in preloved item can click on “preloved” tag to find any ads that tagged with that word, thus enhance your opportunity to be found.

Description

The description is one of the most important aspects of your ad. Go HERE for more details on writing your product description.

If you don’t want to read that lengthy article, here is our summary of how your description should be. Your description should consist of these parts:

  1. Attention grabber. Make them interested in knowing your product further.
  2. Accurate information. Tell them what your product really is.
  3. Tell them the special things about your product.
  4. Call to action. Tell them what to do next. Example: Buy now, Sign-up now, Call me now, Visit me now, Ask me more, etc.

Image

Sabahsell.com made it compulsory for you to include at least one image in your ad, and allows you to include up to three images. People normally look at your image before start reading your description. You must treat image as your first opportunity to impress your potential buyer.

Share
Share your ads in your social media accounts. This will not only helps you, but will help others too.

Good luck and Happy Sabahselling.

We are still working on giving the best online marketplace for Sabahans. At this point, our webmaster team is still working on a few more issues until the page is fully functional.

Our goal is to serve you the page in less than 2 seconds when you have at least 1Mbps internet speed. At such performance, we need to reduce the weight of our page to less than 1Mb.

Because of this enhancement process, you might experience inconsistency in our design, performance, and some other aspects. Rest assured that this situation is just temporary and our team is working continuously on fixing and improving it.

Thank you.
