25 Facebook Marketing Tips to Try With Your Venue

Whether you look at Facebook as a handy marketing tool or a headache-inducing frustration, it’s a part of life for most marketers. So why not make the most of the social network’s capabilities?

These tips from HubSpot will help get you started, whether you’re setting up your theater’s page from scratch or trying to improve it:

“Claim your Page’s vanity URL.

Once you’ve created your business Page, it’ll get a randomly assigned number and URL, like facebook.com/pages/yourbusiness/123456789. To make your Page more shareable and easier to find, you’ll want to create a recognizable vanity URL (e.g., http://www.facebook.com/hubspot).

To create a vanity URL, visit this page, then follow the instructions.

Optimize your “About” section — especially the preview.

Your “About” section is one of the first places people will look when they arrive on your Page. A preview of it is located on the left-hand side of your page beneath your profile picture, and people can also navigate to the full section by clicking on the “About” tab at the top of your page.

Be sure to optimize the preview section on the left side of your page with brief yet descriptive copy to give visitors a sense of what your Page and your business is about before they decide to Like you. This copy will get pulled from the “Short Description” you provide within your full “About” tab.

Post your most compelling visual content.

Facebook’s new timeline page design places more of an emphasis on visual content like images and videos. After all, Facebook posts with images see 2.3X more engagement than posts without images. One study found that Facebook posts with photos saw the most engagement over any other type of post, accounting for a whopping 87% of total interactions.

That’s why posting compelling visual content is one of the most important things you can do to improve your Facebook strategy.

Post videos, especially live videos.

The folks at Facebook know that people like watching videos on Facebook. The number of people watching video content is rapidly increasing: Between April 2015 and November 2015, the amount of average daily video views on Facebook doubled from four billion video views per day to eight billion.”
