MUSIC SENSE MONDAY: TIPS TO MAXIMIZE THE USE OF YOUR FACEBOOK PAGE
Hey there…On today’s Music Sense, We’d be highlighting some tips to maximize the use of your Facebook page. In a time when not much importance is placed on having a Facebook page with the vast majority going on Instagram or Twitter to source information or other related content. The question then is; Do you still need a Facebook page? Emphatically YES!! Amongst many other reasons, Facebook offers a very large audience, with over 1. 23 billion monthly users and can potentially be that platform where your content gains the traction you desire. But for some reason, lots of artists don’t optimize their Facebook pages. Below are some often ignored components of a Facebook page that are easy to customize, and can have an impact on your page’s usefulness.
A COVER VIDEO
Having a cover video on your page is a very good way to create the fan engagement you desire. Best practice is; a 20-90 second video right at the top of your page. The video starts playing automatically whenever someone visits your page. The video should convey your art, brand, message, and any other thing about your artistry. Make sure the audio quality of the video is good too- it’s an added advantage, just in case the user un-mutes you!
Want to sell CDs or gigs? Promote your latest release or website? Start a conversation and enjoy massive engagements?… make sure the big blue C.T.A. (Call-To-Action) button right at the top of your Facebook page reflects that priority. Remember, it’s all the more important to drive action NOW because you can’t tell if the visitor will ever visit your page.
THE ‘ABOUT’ SECTION
Many artists are guilty of not filling out the ‘ABOUT’ section of their profile. This gives you the opportunity to sell yourself and your craft to your audience. Hence, satisfying the curiosity of visiting audience and creating a better connection between you and your audience. Our counsel is; Fill it out. Rock it.!!
