Marketing is commonly regarded as the most important function of any organization. Yet most small/independent business owners lack a systematic approach to their marketing. They are often drawn to fads, copycat marketing (doing whatever everyone else is doing) or simply throwing money away into various publications without a real plan or strategy.

Getting More Likes on Your Facebook Page
Many organizations have launched a Facebook page with the hope of securing thousands of raving fans who would spread the word to a network of tens of thousands of friends.

But after a surge of LIKES in the beginning, you are stuck at the same number with no real growth to speak of. Understand a long-term strategic vision for using Facebook, master the 3 most important things nonprofits should be posting every day, discover 5 creative ways to increase the number of LIKES without having to pay for them, find out how Facebook ads can actually work (and when and when NOT to use them), and learn about a powerful way that Facebook can help you showcase the stories and vision of your organization.
