If you cannot do it yourself, I suggest you outsource. It's a growing trend anyhow - you can get a professional from any part of the world and it will definitely be less time-consuming and costly.

One of the important actions of the ad promotion on Facebook is guiding the client to the appropriate web page. This means that if we want to our potential client to have a peek at the items or services on sale there is no aspect guiding them to our Facebook homepage where no info. about the items are available. It is rather essential to provide a link that areas where the customers onto the site where they can either purchase or know about discount rate of new product releases, etc.

People know that social media is helpful in promoting their business, but most of them don’t know which platform to use for their situation, let alone what messages they should post. While each business is different, similar best practices will apply across the board. Follow these tips for how to use social media to promote your business:
Use the Best Social Media Platform for Your Business
Business owners are often overwhelmed by the options. Should they use Facebook or Google-Plus? Is it important to have a Yelp page? Does it make sense to have a YouTube presence?
Each business has different needs. You don’t need to have an account on every social-media outlet. You’re better off only having one or two active accounts than six ones that you don’t touch.
If you own a restaurant or other food-based business, Yelp is important. Google-Plus, on the other hand, may not make sense. If you’re a freelance graphic designer, you may want to put your energy into Instagram and LinkedIn.
You want to be on social media to bring in more customers or clients, but over-promoting will hurt your brand rather than enhance it. People get tired of hearing the same message. If you’re constantly telling them how great your business is, you probably won’t get many followers.
Instead, promote your business only a handful of times while also posting other content. It’s easy to post content that revolves around topics that are relevant to your audience. For example, if you sell umbrella and rainy season is coming, you can support a conversation around staying dry in rainy season.
Engage Your Audience
One great aspect of social media that traditional advertising can’t do is that it allows you to engage the audience on a personal level.
Business owners with an online presence can engage their audiences in new and unique ways. For example, an author might ask followers which book cover they prefer. Or a hair salon can poll followers on which celebrity has the best haircut this summer.
With so much information on social media, it might be difficult for customers to sort through what’s useful and relevant to them. Business owners can help by posting a mix of messages, engagement posts, and self-promotion blurbs that will provide value to their customers’ lives. For example: an auto body repair shop posted a link to information about auto recalls and defects. Unlike their regular posts, this post with link received much more interaction from people as they found it relevant.
