Why do you need a website when you have a Facebook fan page?

Do you remember My Space? Maybe you were part of Hi5 or some other social network that isn’t cool anymore? Google had big ambitions when it launched „G+“, but today we are aware that it didn’t reach neither their expectations, nor ours.

Facebook is the biggest social network in the world today, with more than 1.35 billion users. Every day they share 4.75 billion posts on Facebook. Among that 4.75 billion content is your post as well, lost in the sea of shares.

The new Facebook algorithms restrict the shares that are not sponsored, so if you have 10.000 fans on your Facebook page, less than 1.000 of them will see your post if you don’t pay Facebook to show it.

To build your business on Facebook means to build on a borrow land because you are not an owner of that fan page you manage, but Facebook. You have to follow the rules of the social network and overnight they change… If something is not in line with their rules, your fan page can even be deleted. All scenarios are possible, including the one that Facebook is the biggest social network today, but tomorrow might not exist.

With your posts there you build the business of Facebook, not your own. It should be the other way around, right?

What happens when you have your own website? You create a content for yourself. Content that you truly manage, that is yours and that will stay on your website until you decide to delete it. And the best thing is that no one else but you can do it. Your goal should be to attract the fans from your Facebook page to your website and here – to provide them with a great content. You should keep them active on your website and you should build your own brand loyalty, not the one of Facebook.
