What’s the difference between a Facebook Profile and a Facebook Page?

I still get asked the question “can I use a Facebook Personal Profile to promote my business?” Or put another way ” Why do I have to use a Facebook Page to promote my business can’t I just use  my Personal Facebook Timeline” To answer these questions I have created a comparison chart between a Facebook Page for business and a Facebook Personal Timeline.

When you take a look at the first entry in the chart you’ll see the main reason NOT to use your Personal Profile for business. This practice is against Facebook’s Terms of Service so promoting your business on your Personal Profile could see your account deleted without warning. I have had several people calling me very upset at the instant elimination of their account so I don’t want this to happen to you.

You can see all the advantages of using a Facebook Page for business so I urge you to play by the rules. Social Media Marketing has become so very important to the continued success and growth of a business in today’s economy. Facebook is an integral part of that marketing, you certainly don’t want to risk losing all that time and effort you put into your Facebook Page.

Facebook Pages are a wonderful way to reach your target audience but like anything there are skills needed to know how to make them a truly effective marketing tool.
