Most small businesses getting into the world of social media take a blast and hope approach. But social media like any other form of marketing should have some strategy and form of metrics to measure the effectiveness of your efforts. This is where the fan page comes in – much like a profile it allows you to connect with people you may know. However, it provides the tools necessary to promote your page to a target market and gives you valuable insight to how your social campaign is doing.
