Facebook is the most popular social network and it has over 800 million active users. Facebook is not just for keeping up with friends, upload an unlimited number of photos and share links. Facebook also serves as an important marketing tool for business. Many Facebook users use Facebook not for personal communications but for business.
A Facebook Fan Page is for businesses, organizations, public figure and so on. But you need fans for promoting your business products or services by Facebook fans. So, you should promote your Facebook Page to get fans.
Here are some ways to get more Facebook fans for your Facebook page:
Fan Widgets on Your Website
Select the fan box widget from Facebook Social Plugins and place it on your blog. The Fan Box widget works well to display your current fan page stream and a selection of fans.
Invite Your Email Subscribers
If you’re like many bloggers, internet marketers, and website owners, you might have an e-mail list. Send an article in your newsletter about your Facebook page to your subscribers and encourage them to be a fan of your page.
Add your email signature
Do you use email signature? I think you do. So, add your Facebook fan page URL to your email signature in every email you send out. You can also add your blog URL in your email signature.
Link to Twitter
You can connect your twitter account to your Facebook Page and it can help to automatically post your Facebook fan page. You can also promote your Facebook fan page on your Twitter account in your Twitter bio field.
Suggest To Friends
You can send the request to your Facebook friends to become a fan of your page. My suggestion is that don’t send the request to your Facebook friends a couple of times. It will annoy them.
Run a Contest
Yes can run a contest on your blog to promote your Facebook fan page. You can simply a post on your blog or other social network sites with your Facebook fan page’s link and tell them to like your fan page to join the contest.
With a normal user account you are limited to friends, but with Fan Pages there is no limit to the number of contacts you can collect to your Facebook fan page.
