Facebook can be a fantastic tool for business but can it work for businesses whose target market is other businesses?
Facebook isn’t the perfect fit for all business although there can be advantages for all. If you are a blogger, feeding your blog into your Facebook page is good for SEO, each time you blog you will get one more inbound link to your website adding legitimacy to your site in a search engines eyes.
If you have time and you are creative there is no reason why you can’t use Facebook for marketing. If your customers on a management aren’t on Facebook what about the end users of your product? In ERS’s case I imagine the end user would be the staff who use the software. Using your Facebook presence to attract these people could help create a buzz around what you do. Perhaps design an online test and run a contest based on that test that employees using your solutions can join in with representing their own companies. The more they embrace the technology the more buzz will be created about your brand and the buzz will reach the higher level executives.
As a smaller company the resources(time) for something this complicated may not be available but it is worth brainstorming around the idea of attracting the end user of your products and services.
