In our previous post we gave you 5 top tips to attract followers to your business Facebook Fan Page. In this post we give you some more:
a) If your business has recognised brands why not consider creating a fan page for each brand?
b) Occasionally use your blog to write posts with links to your Facebook Fan page as well as your website. Like this one!
c) Use free services like those available at http://www.socialoomph.com/ to set up an automatic ‘hello / thank you’ message to people who like / decide to become followers of your page.
d) Use your other Social Media channels to help grow your Facebook community e.g. tell all your friends and followers on Twitter and your connections on LinkedIn that you now have a Facebook fan page for your business. Ask them to go and ‘like’ it.
e) If you use your Fan Page to run competitions try and vary the competitions and the prizes – e.g. you could ask for photographs or videos of your products in action one month and ask for written entries for something else the following month.
f) Use Facebook ‘Polls’ to both create interest and interaction as well as giving you real time feedback from you customers.
g) Use services such as http://www.twiends.com/, a fast growing social community, that allows you to connect your Twitter users, Facebook pages and YouTube enthusiasts and you can use it to add fans and followers to these social networks.
h) Look for the fan pages of other businesses that operate in your niche, ‘Like’ them and you become visible to their fans. Ask these other businesses if they will reciprocate so that you can be seen as not taking advantage.
i) You should ‘Like’ fan pages that create videos and post on their page with the intention of helping people achieve their goals. One page that is good for this is Get 10,000 fans (which ironically has close to 25,000 at the time writing this post!).
j) Communication with your existing fans is essential. Make sure you interact with the current members of your page, and post quality information that adds value to them at least once each day
k) Publish a clear set of rules for members who wish to post links on your wall. Unfortunately there are plenty of spammers out there who target the popular pages on Facebook with the sole objective of spamming their own ‘dubious’ products and services. If you are checking your Facebook pages regularly you can delete these spam posts within just a few minutes of them being posted.
