i tried it. it never worked for me. i never got a single customer from it. likes, views, and friends don't mean much if you never get a tangible customer from it lol.

I use it, and have received new customers from it as well. You really have to push your friends to 'like' or share your posts. I bug them about it through my personal page. My friends are all mainly 25-30, which isn't necessarily the age crowd i'd looking to get business from. I want to get the attention of their older friends and relatives.

What do you think of mine?!

Facebook does work if you know how to use it properly. If you are not enthused by Facebook it becomes more of a chore than a tool. 35% of my work comes from Facebook. If you can get your customers to go from clients to "Fans" of your company the word of mouth spreads quick. This works for my area and demographic yours could be different. Here is my page.

Facebook helps us connect with some customers, but our website helps us more.
