    Does anybody use Facebook in their marketing campaigns? And how is it working for you?

    How are you drawing attention to your page? I need more people to like mine.

    I just sent out a message on my personal page and told everyone to go check out the business page. I only have about 20 people on mine right now, but I also try and post a few things a week to keep the name out there. Its only been about a week since I put it up but I think with more people liking it, the fan base will grow too.

    Good luck.

    I think it was on here someone called it childish and unprofessional at the time

    I would say that there are companies in that person's market that will get work that they will miss out on, just for being on FB.

    Facebook is where its at right now there are 500 million people that use Facebook and over 50% get on daily. I don't think you could say it is childish at all.

    They are really easy to make. I just got to figure out how to get more people to like it and what to post.
