I've got a new site running myself, won't mention it here, not car related, sent out 2000 emails so far to get subscribers, limited response, it will take time but these things do, once they get a foothold though........hang on :D

Get yourself on Twitter! Its a fantastic way to connect with people on a more personal level. I've had a great response from people in the industry offering their support and encouragement. It does take time to build a good presence though.

Yes I know that but there are ways of doing it to get yourself seen more than just signing up... or so I'm told.

lol yeah key words and pay FB for targeted advertising spots dependent on certain demographics/favourites/searches and posts.

EG: the ads around my facebook page is related to travel overseas and cars.... mainly because my pics, posts, searches, likes ect.... revolve around this....

Change your status updates to something like "save the whales" and a lot of the ads will be about the environment ect....

Social Media and Marketing is growing extremely fast, I had to include it half way through my degree because it basically came out of nowhere over night.

Can't say I'm a fan of Facebook for business. In my opinion it seems that most often people will just Like a page then completely forget about it.

The sponsored advertising links are brilliant though. I always find myself clicking them since they target my interests so well.

What did you study Wattens?

They will only forget about the page if its not updated regularly.

Say you post a new article on your site, then get a program/plugin (i'm have been playing around with a few the past few days) to automatically send it as a status update, therefore appearing in your news feed. It will attract page views, I guarantee that.

If you look at some major international brands and what they are up to, you can get ideas to adapt to yours.

Once you get the 'Likes', it really can work.

That's the thing though, they don't appear in my news feed.

Some appear and some don't, its strange. For example the CarAdvice feed is updated automatically when a new article is posted on the website but it doesn't appear in my news feed. I know I haven't hidden it since I used to maintain it.

Is it possible that Facebook starts to automatically hide updates which it thinks you have lost interest in?

I have the domain name backchat.com.au would be good for social networking I think, no time to do it or think it through.
Great domain name the ABC branded it ages ago.
