Facebook...the good and the bad!

Okay...if you're reading this, then I can assume you likely have facebook as well.  And I can likely assume, that like most of us, you love the good that facebook brings (keeping us in touch with long distance friends and family, bringing us joy in seeing friends photos, etc), but could disconnect quite easily from it at times!

 What my business fb page looks like.

What my business fb page looks like.

As a small business owner, I rely on fb a great deal. Small business owners do not have huge advertising budgets, and very quickly...with it's "pages" option, etc...fb has become a way for a business to share their product, engage customers and in general...spread to word.  Initially, this was quite easy...you started a fb page and as you posted, those who had liked your page, would see your posts in their newfeeds.  However, as we all know; fb likes to "tinker" with things.  And that "tinkering" has become a pain in the you know what, for people like me who rely on our fb page.  From what I understand...unless you (as in a fellow fb friend)....comment and/or like and/or share a particular pages post...eventually...you will no longer see any of the posts from that page.  Unless of course, you search it out.  The "in your face", of it appearing on peoples newsfeed...is gone.

Now, I'm making a big assumption here....but i'm thinking that if you cared enough to "like" my page, then you would perhaps...at least most of the time...like to see my posts as well.  Again...this may be a big assumption...but I'm going with it!  :)   So...if you'd like to see my posts, and that does include GIVE AWAYS! , and you haven't seen them popping up on your newsfeed...would you...could you...PRETTY PLEASE....go to my page (My String Beadz by Kelly Ross) and like, comment and share away!  i'm pretty sure after a bit of this...I will again appear on your newsfeed.  Although, this is fb we are talking about...and knowing it...you may still have to hunt my page up for a bit!   So much of my business comes from word of mouth....so whether you share with friends, or comment on a design I post or just like an informational piece I share....this helps spread the word of my passion with beads.  And in turns...helps out so much!  In turn...I promise to run a give away...based on your help....and will post details shortly!!
