It’s the norm to see small business owners frustrated with Facebook, wondering “what exactly can it even do for my business?” and “do I even need it?” There are many “unseen” benefits of Facebook for your business.

Because that’s what your Facebook Business page is.

I probably shouldn’t be saying this, especially as this is a post about a lifestyle and nutrition coach, but I can’t help myself. It’s my dirty secret and it’s time to come out.
