If you asked anyone these days, they’d tell you that they’re social media experts by virtue of the fact that they made their own profile on Facebook. The mechanisms behind using Facebook for businesses, however, are much more complicated.
Customer Service and Interaction
When a business creates a Facebook page, there is a tendency for that business to leave it untouched. What will accumulate after a period of time are a series of compliments, questions, and complaints. So why should you care about these if they won’t make you money? By interacting with your customers on Facebook, you show a dedication to customer service that increases customer satisfaction and reinforces brand loyalty. Conversely, a business that neglects its customers will
A very easy way to initiate feedback and utilise the extent of your customers’ creativity is simply to ask them, over Facebook, what ideas they have. Regardless of whether your company offers deals with real estate, simply initiating contact will yield great returns. And how will this make you money? You can save on expensive campaigns that don’t work out.

For the more technologically savvy, creating an app that is useful in everyday life is nothing short of a miracle for your business. Sure, you’ll get exposure around it, but, should your app be a hit, you can even expand into the mobile app business, and that means that you can slap a price tag on it and see money come in from your efforts. And that’s the easy part.
