FACEBOOK is Down: Now What?

By October 11, 2017 March 1st, 2024 Facebook, Social Media Marketing

I wrote and published this blog about the power of owning your own digital assets in 2017. Now, it’s March 2024, and I definitely have an even larger understanding On Wednesday October 11, 2017, I logged on Facebook to share something with my executive assistant, and I was unable to pull up the Facebook page I wanted her to see. I immediately went from my desktop computer to my laptop to see if it was a platform issue. Then I still could not pull the Facebook page up from my laptop, and then I turned to GOOGLE.

I went to GOOGLE and put in the phrase, “Is Facebook down”, and to my surprise I saw a post from many media sites that had been posted merely 2 minutes ago stating that millions are without FACEBOOK and are PANICKING. I was puzzled by that headline, because I was not panicked. Nope. I was not.



Fortunately, I did not panic. I did not panic because my business visibility is still going strong. I have a multi-channel approach which reduces the risk of my lead generation activities from ever stopping 100%. My research has taught me that the best marketers in the world have a document strategy utilizing 14+ channels to promote their business value proposition. The most successful marketers typically have a website, an email list, YouTube Channel, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram…you get the idea. My experience has shown me that my clients and my client’s clients touch multiple marketing channels before a purchase. In fact, I counted the channels my newest client touched my business from and it was at least 3. Wow!

My experience has shown me using one channel is not wise, and on today, October 11, 2017 if you are relying ONLY on Facebook it can be disastrous.



Yesterday I received an email from a business, that I will not name, that bragged about only using Facebook ads to generate leads that go from Facebook to an email list to a webinar to a phone call to make a sell. Today I am thinking about that same email and I am grateful that I have been true to my experience and patient with slow and steady winning the race.  So, when I saw that Facebook was down, I had peace as a business owner because I KNOW that I have a multichannel approach to my marketing. I utilize multiple ways to fill the top of my funnel. You dear reader, need a multichannel approach to your marketing as well so that you can eliminate the risk of your virtual business doors being closed or invisible.
