As we are a start-up business with really little advertising and marketing budget plan, many of our advertising is done on Facebook, as it’s relatively low-cost to reach a large quantity of individuals. It makes good sense to have a store feature on our page as our adverts connect to our Facebook page.

I assume interaction with brands on Facebook, and social networks in basic, has begun in leaps and bounds in the last few years (I constantly appear to obtain a quicker response when I speak to brand names on social media compared to the conventional techniques!) and also I assume the shop attribute will definitely add to this. I assume it makes individuals feel closer to the brand and makes the brand name seem more friendly, as social media for consumer facing services have the tendency to have a much more human feel.

I believe nowadays individuals prefer a friendlier, much more personal strategy to marketing. It likewise indicates brands have to be on the sphere when it pertains to replying to customer queries – on your Facebook page it tells individuals exactly how great you are at responding! Individuals go on Facebook to connect with loved ones, and also a growing number of now to get in touch with the brand names they enjoy. If a brand name can provide a full solution via enabling people to purchase from its web page, I believe it will improve the brand name’s connection with its consumers, and also enable brand ambassadors to share items more conveniently with their friends.
