A lot of people are often online searching for different things and looking at their social media accounts during their free time.

– Communicate with other people,
– Create a business page, and a lot more!
You can do almost any kind of online marketing on Facebook.
A Facebook Page
It’s easy to create a page on Facebook. Any individual or company can have its own page.
Through their own Facebook page, businesses, brands, organizations, or influencers can connect and engage with customers or a target audience.
When users like or follow a page on Facebook, they will see updates and other posts from that page on their news feed as long as they’re subscribed to receive notifications.
With just a few clicks, you can publish content on Facebook to reach almost anyone online!
Pretty easy, right?
A Facebook Post
Simple, concise, and effective captions on a Facebook post is another important step you need to spend time on.
Page followers value posts that are useful and interesting to them.
In constructing captions for your page posts, think about what your followers would find beneficial.
What do they like?
What don’t they like?
What would grab their attention?
What would make them tune in?
Page owners and managers need to put a lot of thought and effort into what they post so they can effectively promote and market what they choose.
To give you an idea, here’s an example of one of our Facebook posts.
On the Valens Research Facebook page, we posted about an article our President and CEO, Prof. Joel Litman, wrote and published on Forbes.com on a very intriguing event that is bound to happen because of the impact of COVID-19.
Our team knew our page followers would find this very informative and interesting. It’s what they needed and wanted to know.
Target Audience: Professionals in the finance industry (investors, brokers, traders, financial advisors, corporations…)
