Small business owners who use social networking sites effectively are able to promote their businesses in very powerful ways. The site may have began as a way for college students and other young adults to connect online, it’s now become a staple for businesses and community organizations.
However, with more than 60 million business profiles on Facebook, it’s becoming much more difficult to guide customers over to your businesses profile page.

With a memorable and creative domain to give your customers, you can be certain they’re landing on the right Facebook profile. Best of all, the process of connecting your Facebook page to a domain registered with GoDaddy is extremely fast and simple.
