Use Facebook as a marketing tool to move towards success
Facebook a well-known social networking site which is used on a wide scale for chatting and sharing posts. Facebook these days isn’t just limited to creating a social network between its users. It’s also being used widely for corporate purposes and advertisement.
Many Facebook users find such advertisements annoying but at the same time sometimes useful. There is no doubt that Facebook truly is an effective and efficient marketing tool.
Facebook for extending Business reach
A Facebook page is a great tool for free business marketing. Such pages help businesses to introduce themselves to new customers. This is done not just by listing offered products and services but also sharing links, posts, photos on a customizable page to show a better image of businesses personality and character.
Ultimately it should be considered what are the actual interest of target customers and regulate business operations accordingly.
Facebook for advertising
Facebook has its own way of showing ads which appear in the side columns of Facebook site. Such ads are referred more specifically as Market ads. They include a headline, photo, and a click through link to a facebook page, app or an outside website.
Running Facebook contests, promotions or sweepstakes is another facebook marketing strategy that helps in increasing brand image and fans.
Though businesses need to use a third-party application for such contests because asking for likes and comments is considered inappropriate. Then they direct those participants from their facebook page to the application for the contest using a click through link.

Facebook promoted posts
Facebook allows businesses to have their individual Facebook posts reach a certain number of users, increasing a specific post’s reach and impressions by paying a certain amount.
Some businesses asked – why should we pay to ensure that my post is seen by users who are my followers? If a user has liked our page, they should always see my posts on their news feed, shouldn’t they? The answer to this question is no, because it assumes that users spend every waking moment of their life on Facebook’s news feed. We hope this isn’t true for people have other things to do too !

Supported stories are Facebook promotion tools that shows a client's connections, for example, a Facebook likes to the client's companions.
Supported Stories tries to gain by the "informal" advertising idea. In the event that a client sees that three of his companions like a specific page, he is progressively disposed to focus. The objective of sponsored stories is to provide an environment like their companions. Sponsors can decide to show companions "likes" in the event that they need more page likes, show companions who have "guaranteed this offer" if a business needs more clients to guarantee offers, and so forth.

This is extraordinary news for FBX sponsors, since reaction rates for news channel promotions are 10 to multiple times higher than that of advertisement situations in the privilege column.
