Are you taking advantage of Facebook’s send button for your small business? If you are not taking advantage of the “Send” button, then this Facebook Training is going to be very important to you! Also, you are simply missing out on an extremely helpful tool for any small business! Here’s a look at how it works, and how it can help you.

While almost everyone is familiar with the “Like” button, which is seen all over the web nowadays, not everyone knows about or includes the “Send” button on their posts and websites. When you “like” something, a notification pops up on your Facebook page that you liked it, and if someone happens to be online at the time they may see that activity in their news feed. When you “send” something, you send that article or page or post directly to the people or groups of your choosing. This is extremely advantageous for small businesses for two reasons. For one, if you post something on your website and “send” it to someone, you know that they will see it. Unlike posting a status update about your new post or “liking” the post, which could easily be lost in a news feed with thousands of other similar updates, this link will go directly to the person’s Facebook inbox; they’ll be alerted that they have a message when they sign onto Facebook. In today’s day and age where most people spend more time on Facebook than they do on their email client, this method of delivery is arguably even more valuable than email! Secondly, and perhaps even more importantly, is the ability for you to send these messages to entire Facebook groups. Instead of adding individuals one by one, if you have built a group for your business (which we strongly recommend, and here’s another application!), with one click you can send your new post to the inbox of everyone in your group. There is no other way to send Facebook messages to inboxes in mass! The send button, usually located next to the like button, can also be used by your customers and readers to share your material with their friends and family. It also allows you or your customer to add email


addresses instead of a Facebook friends or groups for those that are not on Facebook or don’t check it often. Be sure to add a send button to your website and start sending your updates to your customers and groups today!
