    If you can write niche articles in your blog, I believe you can make them 'like' you and they may be willing to be subscribed.

        Well, it depend on what path do you take, are you ready for the downhill journey which cost you a lot of money, or are you ready to take the uphill journey with almost no cost at all, but will bang your brain out because its extensive use of creativity.
        First path when you already prepare some capital, you can make small quiz and the winner will get a reward, the quiz will be related with your product. you can also directly pass free shirt, or free content, to anyone who share your page to their newsfeed.
        Second path, when you think your brain can handle the pressure, get ready to repost any cool photo, idea, meme, or cartoon comic which related with your niche. I sure your basic fans will share this creative post automatically and your fan page will become viral.
        Happy promotion!

          Tried the FB page tricks already on my first day.. got 40 likes but nothing else since then. Just 1-2 "odd" likes now and then.

          Yeah I tried the "meme" trick already.. I think I need to go for the contest part now.. The thing is, until the FB page is big, the contest won't reach a ton of audience either...

    Yep it's always tough at the start.

    Get all your friends and business friends on there first.
    Then start liking a whole lot of pages that have your target market in them.
    Next start posting great content with "call to actions" of asking ppl to share and comment. Viral images and games are awesome as well.
    Now start becoming active on other pages as your page. meaning posting from being signed in as your page, not personal profile.
    Now i would do some ads and keep posting great content that will make people want to know more about your business and page. You can get $50 ad coupons for $5 from fiverr.com and you can get at least another 100-200 fans from that if you just make a basic ad of .."like" this page if you love.....
    Next you can partner up with other pages to cross promote. Ask them to give a post about your page to their fans and you will do it in return once your page grows.
    Then i would run a contest for massive traffic. Offerpop will do the job for free because your fans are so low.
    You would also want to collect emails and build your business list. Just put an opt-in in there and give something cool away for free. Then follow up in the emails selling them cool stuff they will love.
    Keep posting the viral images 3-5 times per day for 1-2 months and you will hit the 10k.

    Hope that helps

        Before you can post to a person's page as a business, that person should have "liked" your page on Facebook. Then you need to choose "use Facebook as" in the top corner, find that person's page while browsing as a corporate entity and then leave a comment.

        Also, nothing works as good as FREE and FUNNY.

        Some people have already recommended using "like to unlock", "share to unlock" and similar techniques. These work great when you need to get more Facebook followers. But you need to be quite specific about what people are going to get once they unlock your offer, and the offer itself has to be appealing. Usually, it's a discount, a freebie, a whitepaper, etc.

        But then when you have that following, you'd want your posts to have higher Edgerank, so that they show up more frequently in the feed.

    Ads are the best methods. The best thing to do is to promote a status for a niche you are looking to target. So for me, since I'm IM. I always do a status like "Are you tired of your family and friends saying "No" to your opportunity. FREE Video reveals how you can discover the goldmine hidden in your Facebook timeline!" I'll insert my link in there a few times and insert a cool pic...and you will get likes! and possibly leads if you use a lead capture page before the free webinar/video you give out

    Contests, Sweepstakes, Deals .. anything with a 'like gate' , the trick is to run a small ad ($10 a day or so) that points to the tab that has the deal or contest on it. Make sure the tab is like gated. You can normally get around 70-90 real fans per day for your $10 and then when they enter your contest or deal or whatever you also get there email address. $10 for 70-90 real likes and around 40-50 email address's .. not to shabby:

    Buying likes from Fiverr will give the impression that your page is great, but it won't send it viral to be honest.

    You need a great hook and a great reason for people to share it around.

    How do you get REAL Facebook fans?

    Well, you give them something REAL to like.

    It's very rare that any type of paid promotion will bring you real fans. A real fan is someone who likes your page on their own accord without being paid to do so.

    AddMeFast is the largest like exchange. Hire a fiverr seller to get you points. 2000 likes will only cost a mere $5 and is good for real likes, although not many are active.

    Sorry to poop on everyone's party...

    But the question is what do you want to achieve here?

    Is it sales, authority, or both?

    I'd rather have 10 ravings fans than 1000 BS friends who don't even visit your page.

    Bottom line: if you want something to go viral then it has to be 10000% unique and atrractive to people.

    Just take a look in the real world at what goes viral on FB and YouTube.

    Hey There,

    Here's how I managed to get 10k+ fb fans in less than 4 months:

    1. post pictures related to your niche
    2. Comment at other related fan pages using your fanpage account
    3. Like the comments of fans from other fanpages related to your niche
    4. Use fb ads to add in real fans

    Facebook marketing is a in debth process. There are lots of ways and really they all work together. My best advice would be to find a training program that focuses just on facebook and how to use it. You will be creating pages and through your pages you can send your visitors to other places. There is a correct way and a wrong way to do this. You need to learn how to install Iframes and from those Iframes you can give people an action to take. If you need help in finding a decent training on facebook, send me a IM and I'll help point you in the right direction.

    Getting lots of fans doesn't happen overnight. Using social media it can take a while because you need to build trust first. Also you need to provide real strong value and present it in a manor others can relate too. By doing that you increase your chances for a post to go viral.

  • Easiest types of FB pages to start are those that involve posting lots of funny / informative / cute / (insert more here) posts that people can relate to or want to show others so that it automatically snowballs, but that's if you want to run a site like 9gag, and best monetization for that is CPA / Adsense etc...

    You also have to be prepared to keep track of lots of other FB pages and 9gag type sites to find funny pictures and be on facebook adding them every 10-20 mins (at the beginning).

    I've never been good with any other type of page, even struggling with my review site. Plenty of retweets or pins, and even quite a few likes but I can't get the f*ckers to interact with me or each other

    Working on that!!

    First thing i would do i purchase some likes to bulk up the page and give it social credibility. This way it will give your page a legitmate and credibile look. After that contact fanpages that are similar than yours and ask them (or pay them) to post a status update. Other ways of gaining traction to your page is writing blog post or articles for other websites and in your author bio have your fan page in it. This will attract new fans and potential cutsomers. Most likely its is going to take some investment on your part but it can have a great ROI in the future!
