How To Create Raving Facebook Fans

By · September 11, 2009 · Filed in Facebook Business Page


I am sure that you just want to get Facebook fans to your business page, let alone raving fans! I thought I would list some ideas here that brought me 100 fans in 5 days.

How To Create Raving Facebook Fans

1. Provide Value and Interesting Topics LISTEN to what your fans want most and provide it for them.

2. Invite Your Current Facebook Business Contacts – this is a great starting point to get more fans quickly since you already have an established relationship.

3. Add Your Facebook Page Url to Your Email Signature – I have more people comment on my email signature to find out what I’m doing. This is a very easy one time strategy to help increase your fan base.

4. Cross Promote Your Sites – Add your business website or blog to your Facebook business page and on your website or blog add the Facebook business fan page widget to Become a Fan. You can see a sample of this in my right sidebar. This creates a way for your fans to stay connected with you.

5. Run a Facebook Advertising Campaign – This will require a small budget but this has really helped to boost my fan base. You can set a daily budget of how much you would like to target real estate or mortgage professionals. You can find this under “Promote Page with An Ad” on your business page.

Have fun creating your raving Facebook fans! Let me know if you have any specific questions.

    A small advertising campaign does work, especially if you promote it well in other channels and with the help of friends. My DVD giveaway costs about $20 and we were able to gain 45 fans in less than a week. Not huge numbers, but considered a success.

    Hi Craig! Great job on your DVD giveaway! Giveaways and contests are another great way to gain more fans. Thanks for the suggestion. :)
