Today I came across some mindblowing Facebook statistics I thought you should take a look at, because if you’re not aware of the sheer mass of potential Facebook could be offering your product or service then you will be left behind.
It’s a Fact. If Facebook were a country, it would be the world’s third largest!
Since this video was created there are now 800 million people on Facebook.
Over 30% of them are over 35, that’s right, it’s not just the young bucks.
Every 20 minutes on Facebook there are over 10 million comments made and 1 million links shared.
Those links could be yours!
The sad thing is many facebook fans (people who ‘like’ your facebook page) are very scarely returning, in fact a mere 3% will return, thats a whoping 97% ofyour fans that will never visit your page again.
The trick that really makes the big difference in terms of conversion is taking advantage of the engaged state that users are in. If someone has just clicked “Like” on your page, they’re far more likely to perform some other type of action again.
And if they have the choice in front of them to take it another step further (with freebies, tips or tricks to entice them), chances are they’ll take that next step. SO what can you do to entice your fans back again and again, and ensure you don’t loose them?
Getting them to sign up to your email list
Getting them to subscribe to your blog
