If you are spending time marketing your products on Facebook you should STOP NOW and read this!
Attention Business / Website owners: As I have said all along, FACEBOOK IS NOT YOUR FRIEND – they DO NOT WANT YOU TO BUILD TRAFFIC ON YOUR OWN WEBSITE THEY ONLY WANT YOU TO BUILD TRAFFIC FOR THEM!!!
As of September 30th 2011 you’ll no longer be able to send an update to fans using Facebook Messages. (for example, your blog posts will no longer show up as status updates).
We want you to connect with your audience in the most effective ways possible, and updates that go to Facebook Messages may end up unseen in the “Other” folder.
For those of you that say “well gee so what,it’s a free service” keep this in mind – if you focus your marketing energy
If you do not have an interactive website then figure out how to get one – start telling your Fan Page fans to subscribe to your WEBSITE NOT YOUR FACEBOOK FAN PAGE.
Make it easy for them to get your website posts by email instead (see our home page).
We will be dropping our pages within the next 6 months and working with our clients to do the same. As an SEO Expert I cannot, in good concience let my clients invest their hard earned marketing dollars building a place for someone else to get rich! PLEASE SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE!!!!
