DESCRIPTION

7 steps to get your boss to let you use Facebook at work and maybe get a handy raise at the same time! 1. Show em how it works Cliff Notes: Many business owners dont quite know how Facebook works and they think its all about gossip! School them on the mechanics, the basics, and how something insignificant as an update can potentially bring in new business. So showem how it works! Drop the words money, new business, happy customers, and money a lot. Its not what Facebook is about really, but its what bosses like to hear (and its true)! 2. Ask when the company website was last updated Cliff Notes: Most small business websites rarely get updated. Its usually a cost thing, a time thing or a knowledge thing. For one reason or another, company websites dont get updated too often, and if they do, its only a small part of the website that does. 3. Mention an ad on TV or print when it was shown Cliff Notes: Facebook is everywhere, not just online, alert them to this fact. (They unconsciously see it, but if you tell them, theyll take notice!) Its in magazines, on televisions, on billboards. Pick them out and tell your boss about them! 4. Show them a competitors Facebook page Cliff Notes: Nothing will make your boss want a Facebook page more, than to find his or her competitors have one. So show them your competitors Facebook page and count the number of seconds till they asks how long will it take you to make one for us? 5. Tell em youll do it for free Cliff Notes: Get easy brownie points and tell em youll do it for free in your own time (youre probably an expert after all and amongst living on your personal Facebook page, creating a company page shouldnt be too difficult.) Make sure you get the green light before you start! 6. Do it, then rock it! Cliff Notes: Ok, nows your chance to rock it. But totally rock it! Organise some great photos, an awesome profile pic, fill it out with top information and get everyone to like it! Include the F button on your website, update all of the company signatures to include the link and go nuts! And dont forget to be active! 7. Ask for a pay rise! (optional) Cliff Notes: Once all is said and done, and its been some months in, assess the State of Play. Is the Facebook page getting likes? Is it on everyones email signature? On the company website? Emailed newsletters? Business cards? Hold music?? Is it rockin??? If so, hit them up for a payrise. If they dont appreciate your efforts, some other company might ;) gossip ink social media Social Media for your Small Business
