Facebook Timeline Covers: Just Asking!

UPDATE: Seems like Quipol is not longer with us. RIP Quipol!

Last week, I discovered this great tool called Quipol which allows you to ask simple one question polls to find out your audience’s opinion on practically any topic.

This gave me the idea to start weekly polls which is called “Just Asking“. I will use this to find out more about you and your opinion on different subjects. Hopefully we can all learn from eachother!

With the recent integration of the new Facebook Timeline covers, there’s a lot of potential to get creative and show your personality.  Although it is unclear if marketing messages are allowed on personal profiles (see Mari Smith’s post), it might be a good piece of real estate to create more visibility for your business. Recently, I’ve seen a slew of new businesses going up selling and designing custom Facebook Covers.

My first question is–> “Would you pay for a custom and personalized Facebook cover?”

I would love to hear what you think about the Facebook Timeline Covers.  Please leave your comments below!
  • Interesting question, Genevieve. I really stalled getting an image up on my new timeline, and I finally just put up a recent picture I had taken. I love it. It’s kind of a panoramic landscape shot and it looks kind of like a painting.

    I’m not comfortable marketing my business in any overt way on my personal page, and I don’t think I would pay someone to create a professional cover.

      I’ve seen companies charging a lot of money for Facebook covers. I imagine there must be a market for it. With the changes coming to Facebook Pages, I’m sure that you’ll be able to use similar techniques to market your business. People are really visual so there’s a huge potential with Covers to make a statement by being creative.
