2. Infographics/Tips/Statistics– Customers buy from companies they trust. Build credibility with tips, infographics, whitepapers, or other informative and interesting content that provides immediate value to your audience.
3. Case Studies/Product Benefits– Customers want to know what you can do for them. Show them with short case studies or by touting your product benefits. How will your customers’ lives improve by using your product? Make a graphic for your Facebook post, and link to a longer article if necessary.
4. Polls/Audience Questions– As humans, we like to feel included and a sense of involvement. Ask your audience to engage with your brand through polls and questions that are relevant to your industry. People often participate because they like to feel their opinion is valued. The best part about Facebook is that when people see others participating, they’re more likely to jump in!

Facebook is a very effective tool for driving traffic to your website, just make sure the content provides value and is engaging. Keep it visual. Keep it interesting. And always remember to use Pixels and retargeting. Don’t miss the opportunity to generate more leads.
