However, when it comes to generating qualified leads on Facebook, according to business experts, it is highly recommend not to discuss about the business especially if it’s the first time for the company to use the social media site. This is one error that most online businessmen are doing. They usually try to pitch their products and/or services almost every second, every minute, every day and people and other companies who can see these pitches will be annoyed, will be pestered and they will simply ignore everything as time goes by.

The best way for companies to promote their products and to generate more sales leads is to first connect with people. They should be friendly and if they really want to post something, they should post something that doesn't sound as if they are trying to sell something.
