Tagging your business or a friend’s business on Facebook is another way to drive traffic to the page which will later bring a lot of benefits to the pages on Facebook.

Facebook has become the world’s biggest social media platform with about 2.74B monthly active users. This is more reason for you to establish your business on the platform.

Those of us who have already created business pages for our brands can agree with me that organic reach on Facebook has reduced drastically that if care is not taken, your carefully crafted marketing content on your pages won’t be seen by your page followers.

Facebook has done that because it wants more businesses to use its advertising services, that is, they want businesses to pay for their content to be seen by more users on the platform.

But all hope isn’t lost, as we still have other ways of increasing organic reach and traffic to our business pages without having to pay for Facebook ads.

One of the ways to increase organic reach and traffic for your business page is by tagging your business page in posts and pictures.

In this article, we will be looking at the freeway to promote our business on Facebook by learning how to tag a business on Facebook.

It brings recognition to your business.
