How Is Facebook Working For You?

by Joe B on October 5, 2009

I was visiting with a friend this past weekend who was telling me about a business that was struggling to keep their store stocked. In the same conversation, they were talking about how they got up in the middle of the night to play Mafia Wars on Facebook and how they keep up with Mafia Wars during the day at their business.

That begs the questions:

If they were spending as much time on their business as they do Mafia Wars, would that be helpful to their business?

If they were spending their Facebook time creating a business page and building a community of fans, would that be helpful for their business?

If they offered helpful information to their Facebook fans, would that be helpful to their business?

Okay, these questions could go on and on, but I think you get the idea.

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m sure that Mafia Wars and Farmville and all these activities may have their place (maybe), but just don’t give up the store to play these games. If you want Facebook to help you with your business, their are lots of ways to make that happen (Or, maybe you could kill off  your competition in Mafia Wars?).

We’ll cover some of the ways to use Facebook for your business in later posts.
