Around Casa De Dragon
In other news, I have finished the mirror, I just have to put it together. Which I suppose means I'm not finished, I just got the sewing done. I am really liking the mirror and I may make more to sell. The more I think about this, the more ideas I have. Has anybody ever used the 'promote' on Facebook? From what I understand, this makes your posts available to more people. It's sort of free advertising, and after 100 likes you can get a 'boost' which shows the post to an even wider audience, but you do have to pay for it. The promotes and boosts are the posts that appear in your home feed from businesses you are not following. It says 'suggested post' and you are urged to like the page. All the ones that appear in my feed are big box stores like Target. I've never seen one from ordinary folk promoting small business so I was wondering if it was worth it to try and sell anything on Facebook. A few of my friends own businesses, I'm friends with a photographer and a baker, so I get their business posts all the time just because I am already friends with them, but I don't know how many more people see it. I'm not sure if they really get some sales from Facebook or if they just try to cover every avenue in hopes of landing more sales. Any thoughts on this?
