Do you want to engage with more customers but have limited time in front of the computer? Facebook offers a few apps that will make your marketing on Facebook easier. 3 Facebook apps to engage with customers and save you time.
3 Facebook Apps to Engage with Customers
Facebook Mobile App
This app will allow you to access your personal Facebook page, Fan page, groups, ads manager and more. Just by clicking on the three bars located on the bottom right.
This is just like logging into your Facebook page from your computer. The app has limits but you can do many tasks on the go. You can comment, like and share pages. Posting to your page is also easy to do.
This is probably one of the most common Facebook apps on people’s Smartphones. 40% of people use their Smartphones to surf through Facebook. This number continues to grow.
You can now be proactive with your Facebook marketing plan by using this app and join the 40% of people surfing throughout the day with their phone.
Another great feature that the Facebook Mobile app offers is that you can upload photos and videos right from your phone.
The only downside that I can see is that you might find yourself on Facebook too much. If you are easily distracted (like I am) put your phone in a different room when you are creating your art.
Facebook Page App
This is the app that I use the most for connecting with my audience. With this app, you can post as your page, unlike the Facebook app. You can also like posts as your page. One thing that I wish it could do is let you search from your page. This option is only allowed on the Facebook mobile app.
When I am on the go this app notifies me of any activity that has been on my page. It is not consistent so I do check the page periodically so I do not miss anything that is important.
It allows you to like comments and reply to comments that are left on your posts. You can also “private message” someone from this app.
Customer service is an important factor for my business. No matter where I am as long as I get service I can communicate with my audience.
There are more features that are located by hitting the three dots that are located on the bottom right. You can view activity on your page. You can view your draft posts and scheduled posts. Events, photos and Page settings are also available.
This app has saved me a lot of time by being able to work on my page where ever I am. If you have a Fan Page but do not have this app installed I highly recommend that you give it a try.
Facebook Messenger App
Most people use the Facebook Messenger app to just communicate with people. You might be surprised to find out that you can use this app to make international calls for free. Check your data rates any fees that might be associated with your plan.
You can also make a video call or leave a voice message. I send images to my customers of the final commissioned work that they have ordered for their final okay. This makes it easy for me to guarantee my work or to make any necessary adjustments. Go through the app to see how powerful it is.
To sum it up
These 3 Facebook apps can help you build your audience while saving you valuable time. Just think how easy it will be to communicate with anyone on the go. You will be able to post updates when needed. You will be able to share photos and videos. You will not forget to do anything because you have to wait until you are in the office. Facebook is making it very easy for people to enjoy Facebook whenever they have spare time and wherever they are.
