3.) Location Marketing

Optimizing for location might be a new area for Facebook but it's worth trying a simple strategy. If your business is located near a famous landmark or a tourist spot, chances are you can make your business show up when a user searches for business near them. Whether you own a coffee shop or a laundry service, it's good to be associated with famous places so people can find you. You can also run a Facebook ad, offer a check-in deal then mention the landmark which can entice visitors nearby.
