But then I would say that wouldnt I, but in all seriousness, I get asked this A LOT!
Advantages of Facebook compared to a Website:
- Built in appointments and messaging system
- Ease of use, people are already familiar with facebook’s interface
Disadvantages of Facebook compared to a Website:
- Every facebook business page looks the same, its very hard to stand out in the market
- Limited editing ability
- Relies on clients and customers finding you and liking your page
- Slow build up of customer base
- Heavily regulated by Facebook as to what content can be posted or advertised on their platform
- Doesn’t project brand confidence, and often makes businesses seem small scale
Ask yourself when you want to part with your money for something you’ve seen on Facebook – you’ll nearly always look for their website to make sure they are reputable.
