Facebook Fan pages are a great way to get in touch with your customers, clients, and readers.
Until this week, I hadn’t given much thought to my Facebook Page. In fact, my first page, PpcMom Facebook page, sat there, alone, and neglected for months. The truth is that I had no idea what to do with it.
The number of Facebook users grows every day. In fact, Facebook is now more popular than Google. Wow.
If you don’t already have a Facebook Fan page, what are you waiting for? Get yourself a page today. It’s free and easy to do. Once you have your page, you need to actively promote it.
Here are some tips to promote your Facebook Page:
1) Invite People
I know this might seem like common sense, but many people overlook this basic step. Invite your friends, readers of your blog, Twitter followers, etc. This is the easiest and fastest way to jump-start your page fan base.
2) Facebook Search
The updated Facebook Search feature gives you the option to view conversations of your friends and status updates that you may have missed. You may discover some people are talking about your product or service. I’ve found several friends this way.
3) Advertise With Social Ads
Social Ads provide advertisements alongside your Facebook sidebar that encourage people to visit your Facebook Page. It is possible to tailor ads to your friends and their interests, which makes it more appealing for them to take action. Thsi option does cost a bit of money, but you can set your budget. I know several people who have had great success with this option. Remember to use keywords specific to your product or service.
Interact with the people who “Like” you already. The more interactive you are, the more people will feel encouraged to comment. These comments appear in their personal News Feed, and will be visible to their friends. I have “Liked” many pages because my friends have commented on them. Interaction is important.
5) Personalize Your Fan Page
There are many ways to customize your Facebook Page and I am in the process of doing this for PpcMom. The team over at Promote My Fan Page are experts at making your page stand out from the crowd. They will transform your “cookie cutter” Facebook Page into a personalized hub for your customers, clients, & readers. You can include photos, video, email opt-in boxes, ads, and products for sale. This is just pure genius. Your Facebook Page becomes the interactive social media arm of your business.
