With over a billion active users each month, Facebook seems to have taken over the world. It’s almost impossible to go through an entire day without hearing someone mention it one way or another.

You’ve probably already been told many times that your business needs a Facebook page, but at first glance it may be difficult to discern why you would need to have one for business.

“What’s the big deal?” you might be asking. “What does posting silly pictures and showing the world what I hate have to do with growing my business? I barely have enough time as it is!”

Now granted, Facebook has a ton of silly status updates and is overrun with a lot of useless message and information. However, the number one reason your business needs a Facebook page isn’t that people are on Facebook posting silly updates and sending random messages to their friends. It’s the simple fact that people are on Facebook.

That’s right. The number one reason your business needs a Facebook page is because that’s where your customers are located and thousands of others who haven’t yet heard about your business.

Now that’s not the only reason. There are lots of them, but none more important than the fact that Facebook is full of existing and potential customers and your page allows them to get to know you before they ever come in the store or make the first phone call.

Facebook is visited by over 526 million people PER DAY! Isn’t it time they got to know about you and what you have to offer?
