The power of your own Page

I’ve managed a lot of Facebook Pages over the past few years.

They’ve always been owned by my employer or my clients.  Occasionally they’ve been owned by a community group that I’ve been part of.

As the Page manager, I was always careful to retain that Page’s brand voice, to protect its business interests, keep its community happy and grow the Page’s fanbase and engagement. It’s something I enjoy within the boundaries that apply – because those boundaries challenge you.

Yesterday I announced that I will be launching my own social media consultancy. And with that, comes my own Facebook business page.  And that feels so invigorating I am still searching for a metaphor to do it justice [please feel free to leave appropriate metaphor in comments below].

I always advise clients to have a goal when using social media, and to have standards and a ‘voice’ to stick to. That helps steer them away from trouble, and the problematic blending of the personal and professional. Will I be tempted to be silly on the new Prakky Page? Will I forget the brand voice now and then? I hope not. I have to remember that I have my personal Facebook profile for that …

As a Prakkypedia reader, I hope you’ll take the time to Like and interact with me there. I’m looking forward to seeing you.

Over coming weeks, I’ll also be launching the new brand on Facebook and my new website. There’ll be a different look for Prakkypedia too.

  1. “Exhilarating?”

    Sounds much better than “that funny feeling in your tummy that’s bursting into the bottom of your lungs and not letting you breathe deep or speak properly”

    Again – every success ……..

    Metaphor here I go….

    “The air hostess always says to fit your own oxygen mask before helping others.”

    Does that work?

    Merry Friday!
