Using Facebook as your Business’ Fan Page

Hopefully, by now, you’ve created a Facebook Fan Page for your business. Did you know that you can comment on people’s personal Facebook pages AND other business’ Facebook Fan Pages as your business’ Facebook Fan Page? (What did she just say???)

For a long time, you could only comment on Walls as yourself; now you can comment as your business/brand. Here’s the step-by-step instructions.

Use Google Calendar to Manage Appointment Slots
  • Show clients/employees your availability (you can already share your busy calendar with others)
  • NOW you can let them book an appointment during the times/dates you designate
  • Your appointment availability calendar lays on top of their Google calendar to make it easier for them to choose a date/time
This is a major time saver. No more back-and-forth emails/phone calls. Simply block out the time you are available for appointments and share that calendar with others. I just added my appointment availability calendar to my e-signature. Prospects don’t have to call during office hours to book an appointment. They can schedule you when it’s convenient for them.

About Stein's Way Suzanne is a Des Moines transplant who has realized the Power of being a Free Agent. Well-versed in many and varied skills, she has a passion for helping organizations and people achieve their potential. Suzanne = wife, traveler, multi-linguist, triathlete and cook.


I initially meet Suzanne through the Unemployed in Des Moines networking group she started. I was instantly inspired by her enthusiasm, initiative and resourcefulness in successfully creating her own consulting business – Contemporary Business Solutions. I recently attended her Social Media Workshop Series which I would highly recommend as a wonderful introductory source to gain instant knowledge in social media. She continues to be a key mentor as I now navigate developing my own consulting business. Her multi-faceted business expertise coupled with her “get it done” attitude proves to be a great resource for both start-up and well established companies.
