Facebook gives you a great opportunity to market your online business, but you need to know how to do that and stay in the spirit of Facebook and of course the Facebook rules.
Unfortunately, many people who are just running an online business don't take the time to learn how effective Facebook tools are and quickly become discouraged when they don't get the results they expect. Facebook also provides you the automatic group post features so that you can save your time. You can click this link to know more about the auto Facebook group posts.
Here are our Facebook marketing tips to help you build your online business.
Create a page
Don't go and make another "personal profile" just to start a business/fan page. It makes sense to create a page from your own personal profile because then you can invite your friends who might be interested in your online business. If they "like" your page, they will recommend it to their friends and so on.

Manage your expectations
Set realistic goals for your social media marketing. Don't expect to get thousands of "fans" in your first 30 days – this is very rare. Think of some realistic numbers like a few hundred to gain momentum and then if you achieve more than that you will be very happy.
Schedule Facebook Time
Growing a Facebook presence does not need to be a full-time job or something that spends a lot of valuable time in your online marketing schedule. If you are just starting out then set aside one hour a day to start by working on your business page, posting updates, sharing valuable information and generally communicating with your fans and by doing so get more fans to your page.
Increase your Facebook Knowledge
Spend time in your "Facebook Marketing Schedule" to check the pages of people you know in your industry and whose pages you "like". Look at the things they have done and found out how you can do the same.
Interesting Update Post
Using your "personal profile", post interesting updates that will encourage your "friends" to join your page. Posting questions is a great way to do this, especially if you will provide answers on your page.
