    Hello, I live in an area that has 3 major markets. Should I choose only one to name my Facebook page after or could/should I do all three? Would “Mytown, Yourtown, Theirtown Wedding DJ” work with google searches? If someone just searched for “Theirtown Wedding DJ” would I come up or would they have to search for the full name?

    I hope my question made some sense…. lol

    1. This is something to test. My guest is that “Mytown, Yourtown, Theirtown” would only come up on page when for that exact phrase.

      I’d pick the keyword you MOST want to rank for. You can always create additional pages for the other terms, if you’re motivated.

    Hi guys.
    Thanks for your great work as always.
    I changed my FB business name so it is made up of keywords, like you suggested. But now when I like other wedding professionals’ posts it says they are liked by my generic keyword name… I am worried no one will recognise me and I will lose out on networking opportunities with wedding professionals I have worked with. What is your view on this?
    Cheers!

      Hey guys

      I’m still interested to hear anyone else’s experiences with this issue, but have an update of my own. Since changing my Facebook name to the generic keyword terms I just got my first enquiry today from a bride who literally just put that search term into the Facebook search. So I’m pretty happy with that. I am still worried sometimes that vendors who I meet and want to network with online won’t know who I am… but so far they seem to just work it out based on my comment. And when they tag me, I think the keyword name makes it more clear for people what I do, rather than my business name. I got another enquiry from being tagged as my keyword name.

      So there you go…

      1. You may want to have TWO Facebook pages: one named for your keywords, the other the name of your business. Simply focus on growing the one that gets the most interaction, which would probably be the one associated with your business. Then you can use the other to capture leads.

          Hi Stephanie! Thanks for sharing your thoughts. So would you suggest duplicating all the content?

          Is anyone else doing this who can share their experience?

    Stephanie – is the talking wedding app created by your company? Thanks Caren

    1. I wish it was! The app was created by a company based in Israel and the founder works with wedding and event venues. We’re helping them bring it to the US.

  4. Thanks for including the video.
