Creating an amazing Facebook page is key for many brands. So who should you look to for inspiration?
Social media marketing is all about creating an extension of your brand; a seamless brand message that reaches out and creates a memorable experience. This could be in the form of a particular video, an ongoing campaign, a competition or general updates about your company and your product.
Many organizations make the mistake of assuming this is easy and often forget the countless hours and revenue that is required to pull off an excellent social media presence. That doesn’t mean it’s unachievable for those with a budget under a few million, but it’s definitely going to require a little more creativity.
In order to inspire you, here are some of the biggest, most popular names on Facebook and their pages that will simply make you go green with envy.
