By now you know that having custom tabs as part of your Facebook business page is a great way to market your business. What we’re going to do over the next few blog posts is give a more detailed look at how your custom tabs can benefit specific business types. Today’s post will review service providers. We’ll discuss below how to create custom tabs that best showcase a service provider’s business.
Service providers are a broad category. They basically include people who “service”, that is they are people who offer services as opposed to goods (though sometimes they may offer goods as part of their general service). Service providers include healthcare professionals, plumbers, hair stylists, lawyers, photographers, air conditioner repairers etc.
Above is an example of a great service provider who makes full use of Pagemodo by having multiple custom tabs. Here is some advice for the various tabs that should be a part of your Facebook page, particularly if you are a service provider.
- Make a great first impression with a Welcome tab. Include your logo, a description and photos of your services, and an interactive Google map of your physical location (if you have one).
- Get new leads with a Contact Form tab. Prove that you provide great customer service by putting a “Contact Us” form on your Facebook page. The form lets people ask questions and submit comments. Plus, they’ll submit their contact information, which means new leads for you!
- Share how-to wisdom with a Video tab. As an expert in your industry, you’ve got tips and tricks that your customers would love to learn. Pagemodo’s Video tab lets you quickly and easily upload a video from YouTube or Vimeo, simply by typing in the video’s URL.
- Give fans what they want with a Fan Coupon tab. One of the main reasons people follow brands on Facebook is to get discounts. Our app is the easiest way to offer a coupon for your services on Facebook!
