On 3 Steps to an Awesome Facebook Cover Photo for Your Business

Hi Peter

Unfortunately your cover is breach of Facebook's Page Guidelines, and in that particular regard they express the following:


All covers are public. This means that anyone who visits your Page will be able to see your cover. Covers can't be deceptive, misleading, or infringe on anyone else's copyright. You may not encourage people to upload your cover to their personal timelines. Covers may not include: i.    price or purchase information, such as "40% off" or "Download it on socialmusic.com";ii.    contact information such as a website address, email, mailing address, or information that should go in your Page's "About" section;iii.    references to Facebook features or actions, such as "Like" or "Share" or an arrow pointing from the cover photo to any of these features; oriv.    calls to action, such as "Get it now" or "Tell your friends." Hope this helps.

I think this is a great idea. Have you thought about producing a graphic / image of some kind that those of us who support this idea can publish through our social networks?

On 8 Essential Rules for Social Media and Business

Really great post, lots of very handy information. I agree wholeheartedly about profiles too!

With regard to the frequency of posts this really is dependent on the brand and the network rather than a minimum per day basis, I make my recommendations to each client individually taking into consideration their business model and industry.

Additionally, whilst I post on most platforms on a daily basis if I miss a day I would expect that I have built up enough credibility with the people who choose to follow me that I am actually allowed a 'day off' without them running off in horror of the absence of a post. I believe the people that support my brand aren't that fickle.

On Is this the End of .com Era?

Lol, that would only work if you actually did love Pepsi. For me ilove.coke is more my style.

Of course those brands will pick up their TLD's without question. For others they will need to take a punt that they get something catchy that people will want to register their domain with them to tie it into their business eg .dentist, .finance etc
