Facebook – List of Best Business Apps

We’ve discussed the importance of having a Facebook page for your business. So now that you’ve got a page which apps should you use? The following are the 7 most recommended apps you need . . . according to C. Markee, one of the consultants at Planet Ocean.

  1. My Business Blinkweb – leverage your friends list when you install this widget and your site will be shown on your ‘fans’ and ‘friends’ profiles.
  2. Blog RS Feed Reader – integrate your blog into your page
  3. CalliFlower – free teleconferencing directly from Facebook with fans and friends. (Have them download the app. It’s workable as long as your Internet connection allows 1-click-calling)
  4. SocialFly – helps get you organized by helping you remember who your connections are, why you connected, and when you need to get back in touch. Integrates with Facebook to add private notes to user profiles to help you stay on top of your activities.
  5. Facebook Video – publish and share videos relevant to your businesss. These can be from your web cam, cell phone or laptop…just like YouTube.
  6. Page Maps – displays a small version of map on your page (made large by a click) that allows you to customize maps with geo-targeted markers and targeted information. Especially useful if you have a ‘brick and mortar’ store.
  7. SlideShare – lets you display your business’ presentations right on your Facebook business page to help get your message out there using PDF’s, PowerPoint presentations, Word documents and more. You can also add audio to create instant ‘webinars’.
