ALPHARETTA, GA, March 22, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- According to Cardinal Web Solutions, an Internet marketing firm in Atlanta
, all business pages on Facebook will be converted to the Timeline format on March 30th 2012. While this may be the biggest change from a visual standpoint, the changes to features and the heretofore virtually unlimited versatility that has made Facebook an essential social media marketing
tool will be a hard pill to swallow for many businesses.
Communications sent thru Facebook by businesses are being throttled to 16% per month of current Facebook fans that have "liked" your page. This reach may be extended to 75% per month and 50% per week by registering and paying for the Facebook Reach Generator.
The welcome or landing page is a thing of the past, and now visitors will be sent directly to your main page, viewing it in timeline format. The main page will now be occupied predominantly by an enlarged image. The image, however, comes with a lengthy list of restrictions. Prohibited items include discount offers, marketing calls to action, and even contact information like a company phone number or web address.
Alex Membrillo, Principal at Cardinal Web Solutions in Atlanta, states that "While these changes may be disruptive to marketing through Facebook in the short-term, companies willing to set aside a social media marketing
budget and partner with a solid Atlanta Internet marketing firm
will come out on top."
The changes that are set to implement March 30th include many marketing opportunities for businesses that are willing and able to pay for them. To learn more about these changes and how interactive marketing can help your business make the transition, visit www.cardinalwebsolutions.com
