Facebook is one of the largest websites online today and is growing dramatically. Almost everyone has heard about this website and so it is becoming increasingly important for online business owners to use it in their internet marketing strategy.Your Facebook Page – The Place Where Facebook Business Promotion StartsThe first place, other than your personal profile perhaps, that you want to start promoting your business with Facebook is with a Facebook business page. Facebook pages are more specifically designed for businesses, professional people, celebrities and those wanting to promote a business, service or skill more than just a personal profile page. Your Facebook page should also be set up bearing in mind the people you are trying to reach and what they want from your page. Interact with them on both a social and business level – let them know what is happening in the business, share information they would like and allow interaction on the page. The page will then also have a space in its details where you can link to your website.Create a Facebook ApplicationThere are thousands of Facebook applications available and these can be useful not only in terms of making money directly from Facebook but also in sending people to your website for business purposes. Connect your website to Facebook by means of an application and then encourage people to use the application and visit your website.Facebook Social AdsFacebook social ads are similar to Google AdWords in that they are both pay per click (PPC) ads. The advantage with Facebook ads is that you can get a higher degree of targeting based on what people have written on their profiles. Not only can you target geographically but you also have more demographic information as well as information about people’s personal interests, etc.Create or Join Facebook GroupsGroups are another excellent means of website promotion on Facebook. By creating a group you have more control of the group and can send personal messages to the group but you will also need to build up the membership. The advantage of joining a ready-made group is that the membership is already there and provided that they allow you to share links, etc. then you still have some scope for promotion using these groups.Make Your Website Interactive with FacebookBy integrating your website with Facebook you will also notice advantages. Allow people the option of logging in or registering with Facebook, sharing comments across site, liking your pages, etc. As your visitors do this, so more of their friends will see and will visit your website.If you are not using Facebook to promote your business already then start implementing some of these ideas. Joining groups and starting your page needn’t take long and then you can gradually work on implementing the other ideas and building your number of fans and those using your application.
Denpasar is the capital of Bali and is situated just north of Nusa Dua. This city isn’t known as a major holiday maker attraction when visiting Bali. Being that it is the capital, there are loads of Denpasar hotels to make a choice from for all budgets. For many budget travels, the hotels in Denpasar are an ideal place to remain as there are hundreds of inexpensive hotels and accommodation to be found. The service you will receive will be excellent, but the comforts will be very lacking. For the more discerning traveler there are lush places that you can stay at that offer 5 star facilities and services, but these are mostly occupied by business people.The lack of any beaches or other tropical views restricts the Bali hotels in Denpasar to what they are able to give the tourist. Not having the gorgeous blue sea or lush rain forest as a view means that all the hotels here will only be able to provide views of the town. As much as the Balinese life-style is uniquely different and worth exploring, activities in Denpasar are limited and therefore the variety of accommodation is also limited. You won’t find any private villas with access to isolated beaches or be able to step out of a hotel in Denpasar onto a stunning white beach. If selecting to remain here in one of the luxurious Denpasar hotels and you want to experience all that Bali has to offer you are going to need to commute from the hotel to the site of your selected activity.Only the top Denpasar hotels will have a website for you to order online and seeing as the city isn’t a popular tourist destination it is feasible to find accommodation throughout the year without booking in advance. The single time that you may find the hotels fully booked is if there is a major conference being held and then it could be hard to find something. If you do plan to spend a night or 2 here and want to stay in a luxury apartment then it is definitely a good idea to book early ahead. Backpackers and budget travels don’t have to worry as there is always room at the inn somewhere in Denpasar.Booking into one of the top Denpasar hotels, all your rooms will be air conditioned and all room facilities working, but if going for a cheaper hotel it is best to inspect the room before paying for it to be sure the air-con works and the toilets are use able. The next thing that you need to make sure of is if you need to have a hot bath or shower, make sure that these facilities are available. Coming from a developed country we automatically assume that hot water is available, not so in Bali or anywhere in Indonesia. You may have to order the hot water tank to be switched on a couple of hours before you wish to take a bath at some of the more budget Denpasar hotels.
