Why do you need a Facebook Fan Page? Here’s why: Facebook is the second most visited website next to Google and the Facebook Fan Pages are public. This means that a Page gets indexed and is searchable inside and outside of Facebook.
Here are 5 great ways to promote your Fan Page and grow your Facebook fans:
1. Invite Your Friends
The easiest way to jump-start your fan page is to invite your personal or business friends first. You can find the “Suggest to Friends” option on your fan page. This will automatically send an invitation to your fan page to all of your friends, or to a set of friends you’ve chosen.
2. Embed Widgets on Your Website
There are a number of the new Facebook Social Plugins you can choose from.
One of the widely used plugin is the Like Button . It lets users share pages from your site back to their Facebook profile with one click.
3. Tweet it! Blog it!
Talk about your page on Twitter and embed the widgets on your blog. Integrate your Twitter account to your Facebook fan page and it will automatically post your Facebook updates to Twitter.
4. Run a Contest and Acknowledge Your Fans
Keep your fans engaged. Every interaction on your Fan Page, be it a comment or a question is a way to engage your customer to lead them down the path of doing business with you. Run a regular contest such as video-photo contest, provide discount coupons or vouchers and always acknowledge your audience.
5. Test Social Ads
Boost your fan count using Facebook’s own social ad feature. Experiment with a weekly/monthly budget and see what happens.
