How effective is facebook in promoting a business?

Maybe it just comes down to how much time you spend on it, as it is a social site?


i did it more as a accumulative effect of everything i have going on with the web site and social media to keep my SEO ranked high.

i never once for a moment that facebook was gonna do anything else other then that for me and my business.
it just boils down to one more thing on the world wide web related to your business name.

i personally after doing it awhile on twitter and facebook for the life of me can not see the attraction.
i think it is stupid and *** and a jumbled mass of confusion.

i have grown accustomed to the typical web format such as this place or any others that i frequent where as you are a member and if you got something to say or see something you want to respond to you just have at it with no real limits other then not curing like a sailor.

but i will say all of the social media i have used in conjunction with one another has made my internet presence to the point where i am on the top of the front page on most searches with my keywords in my local area and two months ago i was non existent.
i had a poorly made web site for going on my 3rd year and never got squat from it and now that i have done all that i did the last couple months everything has exploded.

the real test will be in how many phone calls does it translate to come the busy season but time will tell and anytime you can get your name out there and it be seen is a good thing and there is no better place to start then the internet because most of it is free.

i also got the google adwords campaign going and everywhere i go now i see my name on the screen. even here i do but i am sure no one else see's it because i have it targeted to my local area.

i am hopeful that this will help because after i got things going and had a good foothold with what i did in getting a stronger internet presence we had that big snow 2 or 3 weeks ago and i got more phone calls then i ever had in 23 years of business.
and by more i mean about a 100 more calls then normal.
