How to Promote Your Business on Facebook Without Being Overly Promotional - Tip 1 - Blog Featured Image

One of the best ways to engage your audience and get them involved and EXCITED about what you’re about to release is to give them a little tease about what’s to come.

People actually like being teased, that’s why this is such a powerful way to promote your business without being ‘overly promotional’ as Facebook calls it.

How to Promote Your Business on Facebook without Being Overly Promotional – Video Explanation




You can do short video clips of what you’re working on sort of like a movie trailer

Maybe even a behind the scenes shot of your film session, who you’re working with, one of your masterminds etc

Or even something as simple as talking about the blog post you’re finishing up before it’s even released.

You can even bring your friends into the fold with a call to action such as:

Comment below if you want me to tag you in the post as soon as it’s ready

or

Like this post if you want to be the first to see it

Both are great ways to get the permission of your super fans to help distribute your content even before you’ve launched it.
