Join the revolution

FACEBOOK accounts are now more common than Akubra hats in October and many businesses have now jumped on the bandwagon.

And while you think you may have got your personal account down pat, a business page may not be so straight forward.

Warwick beauty salon Ooh La La Beaute launched its very own Facebook page two years ago, to resounding success.

Having amassed more than 400 friends, the page is a fantastic way to keep in touch with existing clients and reach out to potential new ones.

Owner Emma Eastwell said the appeal of a business page on Facebook was easy to explain.

"Facebook is pretty big and I thought it was another way to get my business out there - and of course, it's free," she said.

"We can put up photos, tell people about our specials and clients will often tag themselves when they're in here as well.

"It has got a few people through the door."

Miss Eastwell monitors her page at least once a week to ensure no offensive material makes its way to her page.

The young business owner said she had also researched the terms and conditions of Facebook business pages, which restricts cover photos from containing pricing information.
