Just like I was saying the other days, promoting your business on Facebook became a very common thing and it is a widely used method nowadays. If you already built a page for your business and you want to have a good start, the first thing you have to think about is how to get some fans. What can you do to attract people and to get them to be interested in your business? You need to know exactly what to do to capture their attention and to make them wait anxiously for the next post on your page.
After you put together your Facebook business page, the first question that comes into your mind is how to bring fans to come over. Maybe you think it won’t be easy, but the secret is in the techniques you use to do this. So I will show you how you can get more people to like your Facebook fan page.
Putting a fan box on your site will increase the fan number on your Facebook page. Imagine that all the people that enter your site will see it and it will be very easy for them to access your Facebook page and to click “like”. You can find the code for this application on your Facebook account and all you have to do is to insert it on your website/ blog. You will see that this little trick is very helpful.
Using Facebook ads is a great and interactive way to gain fans. The only thing you have to do is to run “Advertising Wizard” from Facebook and afterwards, the fun part begins. Just remember that you have to make your ads. Be sure to make them attractive. Who knows? They could even turn viral and even more people will like your business.
Another easy way to bring fans to your Facebook page is to tag your page in all the posts you write on your Facebook account.
This is the easiest way to bring fans to your Facebook page. After each post you write on your blog or website you can add a clickable link to your Facebook page with the message “Follow me on Facebook”. You can use this method with all the social media platforms where you have an account. This will definitely increase your Facebook page fans in no time.
5. Be creative
Before posting something on your blog or website, be sure that it is creative and attractive content. You have to write things that will catch the attention of the readers. This will increase the number of fans on your page, because every time when somebody shares an article from your blog/website on Facebook, it will gain even more visibility and potential fans. And as long as you write good quality targeted content, be sure that people will like it.
You can try this strategy with the admins of other pages. Search for pages that are in the same business category as you are and talk to them. Ask them for permission to post a link to their site on your Facebook page and ask them if they can do the same for you. Don’t be discouraged if not all of them will want to do this. If they seem resilient to help you, then you tell them you can pay for this via PayPal or Western Union.
7. Contests and giveaways
Lots of pages on Facebook use this method and it seems that it works wonderfully. You can promote all kinds of contests and let the people know that the only way they can participate is to first “like” the page.
These two go perfectly together. If you have a large community of followers on Twitter, then the best thing you can do is to connect your Facebook page to your Twitter account. This way many of the followers that you have on Twitter will become your fans on Facebook. And when you post something new on Facebook, the connection between your two accounts means that all the information will also be shared to Twitter. This is a nice way to promote your business and keep the fans from both Social Media sites satisfied and in touch with everything you do.
There are loads of methods you can use to attract people and get an amazing number of fans for you Facebook business page. You just have to be inventive and challenge yourself to go beyond what others are already doing.
Don’t fall for schemes and Facebook paid likes. They will only get you flagged by the new Google.
Keep it clean and you will do great!
