TIP! Make Facebook posts short and interesting. Make sure a quality picture that goes with the post is used.

Your Facebook posts should be brief, relevant and interesting. Include a photo or graphic which compliments the content. An attention grabbing post with a good picture is far more effective than a boring status update. Always be sure you “like” the comments if your followers make them.

TIP! Don’t send purchase request emails every single day. While you certainly have a goal of increasing profits, doing this can turn people off quickly.
