Facebook fan page how to increase followers

Profile picture of the author paradox_qu by paradox_qu Posted: 06/20/2010
I have a FB fan page that I just stared for a new youtube show I'm doing. I want the fan page to help promote my new show but I'm having a hard time gaining fans.

I have already "invited" my current friends to fan my page but after my immediate friends I am kinda stuck. I am in the music niche and I know that I can post on other music fan pages but I dont want to look like a spammer. What are some good ways to promote myself on other peoples pages without looking like a spammer?

I want to use my fan page to drive traffic to my youtube channel so I am looking for any and all ways to help promote my fan page, and gain followers.

Any help is appreciated,

Thanks
-Nick

    Slowly increase your number of friends. Go to fan pages and groups of similar interest and add people from these pages and groups as your personal friends. Share good and relevant content with these people and every so often post details about your fan page on your profile.

    After a while the page will begin to grow all by itself...

    You could always buy a bunch of invites. Last time I checked it was $15 for 10,000 invites. PM me and I will send you the link. This is not my service. But I do buy them for some of my clients to get them a quick 400-1,000+ new fans.
    thanks, its good post

    Beat me too it!

    Here is the link to fivver: Social Marketing related tasks people are willing to do for $5

    There is a guy who guarantees 800+ fans: ynnod0524: I will effectively ADD 800 Plus Fans in Your Facebook Fanpage or Group, I Can Guarantee It! for $5 at Fiverr.com

    Here is the email to the guy I used last time:

    His email is below. I used him once so far and he has tons of reviews on the other forum. I paid 15 for 10,000 invites and got about 350 new fans in less than 7 days or so. I just got 20 new fans in the last 24 hours too. Next time I will probably order 30,000 invites.

    Here is his email:

    we have been sitting at 130 for about 2 weeks lol. I'm thinking just get people to really like what you're doing? We seem to have an increase whenever a post is really good.

    I personally held a give-a-way, where I give away a free program/programs (my ebook) at milestones on the fan page and my results were amazing, infact I have added 3500 people to my fan page in less than two weeks. I gave away programs at 1500, 3000, next at 5000, and then 10k but I did have an amazing response... people adding friends to get to the next mile stone, fans have made encouraging youtube videos, etc.

    I also got my friends, and other social media involved to build this number. Hope the idea helps someone!

    Hey Rock,

    I've got less than 50 posts so can't send you a PM. Could you please PM me with the details and also whether not those invites can be targeted to a country - or better yet a region.

    Thanks very much,
    Nick

    Nick,

    You have a website already? The best way many people increase their Facebook page fans is by linking to it, from their website....when people encounter great beneficial content on their website, many times, they will click through to become a fan....

    Some will...some won't...it's a gradual process...

    Right. I don't promote my website, but my client's websites. I just wanted to know if you can drive targeted traffic to a fan page for money.

    Obviously if I'm promoting a shop in London, then promoting it to anyone outside the country will pretty much be a waste of money.

    You could try making a page in FBML and adding that to your fan page (making it the default landing tab when people go to your fan page). On that you could write some compelling copy to help make it viral. Check this place out: Facebook Fan Page Engine - 100% Custom Facebook Fan Pages for Facebook Marketing

    You could also offer a decent giveaway and use a (ethical, FB-friendly) 3 step FBML script (there is a free one available on this forum which works good) which will help it go viral.

    why dont you try sending mails on facebook to people attaching link to your videos this will make them visit your page and they will start liking it. you wont have to add them. ask your friends to share your videos this will make the videos to be visible to there friends and the will then visit your page...

    My other super fan getting plan was implemented yesterday with solid results. I had a "Do a Good Deed Day" and had everyone post a story about the good deed they did. The winner was decided by who's story had the most "likes", and won a free copy of my ebook. What happens here, is people really want to win, so they start messaging all of their friends to go to your page and "Like" their story... which in turn gets you a ton of people unknowingly promoting the crap out of your fan page and people Liking your page to help their friend out.

    Thanks very much mate. I've been experimenting with fan page landing tabs and see a really good opportunity to convert. I'll be setting some up for my clients soon, can you give me the URL for that 3 step thing?

    Thanks for the useful posts folks.

    I've just signed up to Fiverr.com and I'm astounded by the scope of what people will do!

    My favourite so far has to be: I will phone your son or daughter and pretend to be the tooth fairy.

    All great answers, I don't know how to add to it even though I do very well with Facebook groups. Create multiple facebook accounts, add people from music related groups, join as many groups related to your music group as possible, you would find that alot of people would start to request to be your friend on facebook. Down the line, you invite all your newfound friends to become your fan on facebook, hope my little 2cents help.

    Here is one video I did on How To Grow a Facebook Fan Page. You can also create some additional Fan Pages, for example, I want to build a list of people here in San Diego. I created a Page called 365 Fun Things to do in San Diego, have close to 1,000 people already. You can then using FBML Code, put your banner ad on the page or directly message all your Fans.
