Embedding a Facebook Fan Box on Your Blog/Website
Embedding a Facebook fan box on your website/blog is definitely the first thing to do. This will increase the number of fans. It is an app of Facebook and you can get its code from your Facebook account, and then all you have to do is to insert it in your Website/Blog. You also have the ability of optimizing and designing it so that it increases the chance of your Blog/Website’s visitor becoming a Fan of your Facebook Page.
Using Facebook Ads
Using Facebook ads is a good way to get more fans as it only targets the people who are interested in your product/services. There is a great chance that the person who views your ad will also become a fan. You can advertise on Facebook by going through the Facebook ‘Advertising Wizard’ that you can reach by clicking on ‘Advertising’. Always try to make an ad which is eye catching and which will capture the attention of the viewers.
Tagging Pages in your Updates
This one is simple. Just tag your Fan page whenever you are updating your Facebook Fan Page’s status or are posting something and are adding a description.
Mentioning to Follow Me On Facebook Everywhere
This is one of the most effective and easy way of increasing the number of fans on Facebook page. Always include a clickable link at the end of your post, requesting the readers to become a Fan of your Blog/Website on Facebook.
You should also add a ‘LIKE’ button either at the end or at the start of a post, as it will also make some readers become a fan.
You should use this ‘Follow Me on Facebook’ on every other social networking website that you are on like StumbleUpon, Digg, Twitter, and even in your Email Signatures. Doing all these things will definitely increase your Facebook fans.
Regularly Creating and Posting Creative and Targeted Content
You must have read it everywhere and I am going to say it again — “Content is the king!”. Always try to create good and targeted content in order to make new fans and keep the existing ones. If you have good content on your website, the readers will obviously like it after reading it and doing this would post your post on their walls. This post would then be visible to their friends and so there is a good chance that they might become your Fan too. If your fans share your posts, those posts would appear on their walls with a ‘Via your-fan-page-name’ and seeing that, your fan’s friend might also become a fan of your page.
Like Exchanging with Admin of Other Pages
If you want you can also try doing like exchanging. Simply search Facebook Fan Pages in your niche which have a lot of fans and then contact their admins telling them that you will post a like of theirs on your Facebook Page and whether they would be willing to do the same for you. If you will like their page it will automatically appear on the left panel of your Facebook Fan page, in the ‘LIKES’ section. If they also like your Facebook Fan Page then yours would appear on those pages too.
There may be some Fan Pages whose admins may not agree for a link exchange. So you can offer them money if you want and pay them through PayPal, or Western Union.
Using Facebook as a Fan Page
Changing your Facebook’s Personal Profile to your Facebook Page is also another effective option. You can do this from the option given on top-right side of your Facebook Page. When you click on ‘use Facebook as ‘your-fan-page-name”, you can start using Facebook as your Facebook Fan Page.This is a good way to bring in traffic to your fan page.
After you have done that you can like other pages and can comment on their photos, links, statuses and videos. Make sure that those fan pages are in your niche but have a large number of Fans. Comment and communicate with the fans of that Facebook Page and always be sweet and friendly as this will bring them to your Facebook Page. This method is similar to getting traffic by commenting on other blogs.
Running Contests on your Blog/Website
Contests and giveaways are a great way to get more fans and traffic. Simply keep the requirement for entering the Contest or getting listed for the Giveaway, to be or become a Fan of your Facebook Page. Many websites/blogs use this method and it also proves to be very good way of increasing your number of Facebook Fans.
Connecting Facebook to Twitter
If you have a large following on Twitter, then connecting your Facebook fan page to Twitter is also a great way of converting your Twitter followers into your Facebook Fans. You can do this by using any of the many applications on Facebook that let you do it. After doing this your latest status updates, photos, links, notes or events on Facebook page will be tweeted out by your Twitter profile automatically to let your followers know what is going on, on your Facebook page.
You can also put a link in your ‘About Me’ on Twitter as this might also make some new fans of your Facebook page. You can also create a background image for your Twitter profile, and then write something on the background image with a link to your Facebook page.
Mentioning Your Facebook Page on Your Personal Profile
You can put a link to your Facebook page on your own Personal Facebook profile, so that any friends of yours that are interested in the niche of your Facebook page can like it. You can put that link in the About Me section with a little description about it.
And make sure to add http:// to your Facebook Page’s link, because the www’s are not clickable on Facebook!
Making An Appealing Welcome Tab
We have dicussed many methods of bringing traffic to your Facebook Fan page, but are you sure that people would actually click on the ‘LIKE’ button on the top of your Facebook Fan Page? To increase the chances of people liking your page, simply create a welcoming and compelling Welcome tab for your Facebook fan page. This Welcome tab can be a video of you, telling people about your Facebook page, about the contests you run etc in order to make visitors your Facebook page fans.
Keep working hard. Good Luck!
