    I'm a huge fan of Facebook and am starting to see some great results.

    First of all you need to create a profile (if you haven't already). When filling out the information section remember not to give too many details; going on and on will increase the risk of sounding repetitive and boring your potential ‘friends’. Once you are done adding your existing contacts you will move to new people. It is because of those very people that you have to keep a reign on your fingers and not type your whole life in the about me section. Why would a stranger want to know why you decided to have cats instead of dogs? I am not saying you should look plain and talk only about business; in my opinion this is an even bigger put-off factor than showing too much. Be yourself but just put the chances on your side. However don’t worry you will get to satisfy this wish when you become more popular on Facebook and your new friends themselves ask to know more about you. It’s better to wait till you are sure they will be receptive to it.

    Next up, know your limits - this really depends on your approach to work, what you are trying to sell and your image. But the old adage ‘Don’t mix work and fun’ might be true after all. I know experienced marketers who have a sole Facebook profile where they add potential business partners and clients who can see posts about their social games, their insignificant or in the depths of despair status, the latest song’s link and tags of them in photos taken when they were drunk or sleazy. We can all see the fun in those petty things but it is unfortunately often a repellent in business.

    Don’t add "friends" like mad just to increase figures. Think of quality over quantity and add/accept people who are your target market, potential employers, provide services you might need or whom you might want to work with.

    Don’t jump with joy just because you have thousands of friends. Many people accept friend requests without thinking and therefore cannot be counted as quality friends. The only way you can assure yourself of their loyalty is by winning it. I hate it when I login, see I have several messages, get all excited only to see they were sent by the same person who not only is trying to sell me something but can’t even remember he sent me the same message 5 minutes ago! So don’t spam them but post quality content such as blogs and links (post it on your profile instead of sending it as a message so they can see it in their feeds and decide by themselves if they want to read it or not) or simply chatting with them once in a while, wishing them a happy birthday and commenting on some of their posts.

    Once you've set up your profile - you're ready for fans! The number one advantage of a Fanpage is that you can go beyond the 5000 people limit. And since you already have loyal friends they will be most happy to join your Fanpage as well, knowing you are a quality content provider and not one of those airhead spammers. Thanks to the Suggest to Friends option, which is the Facebook equivalent of word of mouth, your friends’ friends will also join and they will pass you to their own friends and so on.

    Let me be clear; it doesn’t take 5 steps and over 5000 friends to make money. If you used your cards well your Facebook presence will have won you bucks already. But when you reach the status of someone with a dynamic Fanpage it gives you extra value and credit; it impresses the client, gives him the impression (rightly I hope!) that you know your field and are on top of things. Keep everything and everyone connected by organizing events, webinars and so on. Send them courteous and light offers, for example:

    ‘Hi there, was wondering if perhaps you would like to have a look at my new ebook. I’d be glad if you could read it and tell me what you think of it. Please let me know if I can return the favour. Thanks’

    Don’t pressure them or send them messages at a high frequency. Keep it concise and friendly. Give them an apercu of what you are offering instead of pushing the whole thing under their nose.

    Best of luck in the Facebook world!

    That is a really helpful post Lilach.

    I would think that a Facebook Fan page is an investment. Kind of like a list, it will let you tap a market over and over again just by having them on your site. And because CPA offers are usually free, they really work wonders on fan pages.

    I think your a bit late to the party, this stuff all took off about 6 months ago and now its all fizziling out as the user base gets annoyed with the constant offers.

    Lilach,

    I have been looking at this for some time, and have noticed some pretty strange scripts that people use for getting sign ups, especially the Dell FREE PC and FREE iPhone offers.... I joined them to see how they worked knowing that they were CPA based.

    My question is this - do you rate this type of script and would it be the way forward to get some CPA offers rolling as a fan page.

    My concern is that I want people to join the fanpage, but only want to give them the url once they have joined.

    Is there a way of postponing content on a fan page until they have joined, or is that the standard par for the course?

    Look forward to your comments, and thanks for the information so far.

    Best

    I have about 5k 'friends' on my facebook page mostly from game applications that I use to play like crazy until I gave them all up as they were taking up too much time.

    Now I'm concentrating my time on marketing. What I'd like to know what's the easiest way to promote cpa offers to these guys. Apart from paid advertising on FB has anyone had any good results or can anyone share techniques that work.

    Phil,

    What I tend to do is sign up for an affiliate offer cpa offer which is related to your facebook page, and then get yourself a unique url, place your affiliate link in the DNS settings and then tell them about it on your page.

    Make sure you make the url related, pay to hide your details and then tell them you collected the link form another site you use.

    We did this with a friend who was into mafiawars and had a FB account with over 20,000 followers, earned nearly £100,000 ($150.000 USD) for an offer over a 6 week period.

    No turning your nose up to that one!

    Phill,

    The offer he sent them was a download for a games toolbar for either IE or Firefox which was a couple of bucks - not sure if that is still around, but it got him some amazing free traffic as lots of the guys who signed up to his "fanpage" obviously made it live on their own member page for everyone to see.

    The final count was he ended up with about 71,000 people on his fanpage, ready for the next offer to load up.

    Best of luck.

    Facebook fan page isa great way to attract visitors, especially in case where free offers like CPA facebook fan page can work wonders.

    Wow, I have a FB script that can get me a million DIFFERENT (meaning no two the same) friends, but haven't used it yet. I've been wanting to sell it though. I'm not good at FB stuff, but heck if this is working I may use it in the future in a couple of months, but in all honesty I probably won't because I hate online methods.

    Thanks Lilach. What kind of status update content do you recommend? links / images/ video?

    I am quite the newbie to CPA and I have been thinking of building a fan page for CPA offers. One question I have is I already have a personal page, so I should probably keep this separate from my fan page, you can correct me if I am wrong.
