    Regularly update it, even if you have no fans for a month. No one wants to become a fan of a page with no updates or recent postings on it no matter what the subject.

    The key to a good fan page is promoting interaction. People don't want to just be "shouted" at. Create statuses that will get people involved and commenting. You will build a stronger bond with your userbase this way. Plus, when people like or comment on your page, it will be shown to their friends. This gets your name in front of more people for free.

    Every one will say that fan page is the way in FB for the marketing and to get benefit through the social media. But with any social network , need is to connect with the more people and to provide them the new and useful information and maximum try to solve their queries. And every time with the useful content ,try to keep them engage with you and to attract more people. So this way you can try to attract all people to your site and to get the more traffic.

    Hello friend,
    If you want to promote your Facebook site, then first create a fan page or business page to promote your website because most of the users are promoting their website over profile page but it is not a good process. The second thing is design your welcome page to impress your visitors. Posting valuable content related to your business can be very effective for attracting visitors towards your website.

    It will be more helpful if you create informative content that is supported by images that will visualize by the visitors as well as the members of the site. Interact with the other members to introduce your site to with useful terms.

    People love freebies. Get them into your site by giving them small incentives like articles that have topics relative to their ideas and those that will be helpful to everybody. If you have a LinkedIn account, be visible by answering questions and giving help to those you know you can do something for them. That way, you can be able to get their trust and even get new good relationships.

      mkjohn Seriously?

      Suggesting that creating a FB Fan Page and liking it so that your friends can be influenced to liking your page through your interests is far from a decent strategy. To further educate you on FB you don't need to put a LIKE button on a created Fan Page. Facebook automatically issue you with one. However you can add a further "LIKE" But that is another discussion for another thread.

      I wonder how much traffic you have managed to generate from your suggested method. Keep us update on your results?

      Hi Ninar,

      To answer your question I would say that there are no tricky moves involved when using FB as a marketing tool. Especially free promotional tools like Fan Pages.

      ninar[/URL]] How do you promote your site in Facebook, for example? Are there some tricky moves?
      Firstly as suggested by many on here already you need to create a Facebook Fan Page. Once you have created your Fan Page there are a few things you will need to do first before you begin promoting it.

      1, Ensure that your Fan Page Avatar shows a picture that is closely related to your niche. Better yet you can even promote your main website within your avatar. Try to make sure it stands out and shows who or what your business is about.

      2, Grab your self a vanity URL. This will work wonders for back-linking within FB. Think of it as your sig file here in the Warrior Forum. Image if you could post as your sig file. How many more clicks would you get posting like this? Obviously you will have to shorten your vanity URL name but try to keep it related to your niche. For example:

      *How to build Fan Pages Fast with Cathie Brown
      *Lisa-Marie Success Power Coaching
      *Free WordPress Training Videos by Mercer

      3, Lastly you need to create a customized tab for your landing page. This is the great feature to Facebook. When a visitor is directed to your Fan Page you have an opportunity to grab their attention. Moreover you can sell or promote your business. It's important that you do this part right as first impressions count. Facebook allow you to make this page your landing page. So as soon as someone click your vanity URL ( i.e www.fb.com/ninar) they get taken directly to this page. Tip: On your landing page have your header promote the LIKE button in return for something. This call to action works great and is the same strategy I personally use.

      Now the following our the 5 methods that will keep you busy enough and over consistent action get you a lot of LIKE'S/Fans and traffic:

      1, Commenting on other pages as your FB Fan Page not your personal profile.
      2, Sharing content from other pages
      3, Tagging (Tag groups and tag partners)
      4, Notes (keeping your fans and other informed)

      Commenting on other pages especially pages related to your niche can be effective way to steal traffic from other pages. Just make sure you are providing value or seen as part of the community on that page. In other words no spamming. This is were your vanity URL will come into play. People are curious by nature and on FB people love to click things. So seeing your vanity URL since you are posting as your page people on these pages will click your Page URL. Tagging is a little more tricky but is a fantastic way to get traffic fast. Try to get permission from the other page owners as again you don't want to annoy anyone or more importantly get banned from their pages. Once you have a list of 50 pages just pick & mix with who you want to tag. Tagging personalized videos is probably the best thing to tag when using this technique. Out of everything I have suggested try to engaged your fans with useful content and get them to share it. This is the most powerful feature for successful FB Fan Page traffic. The share button is responsible for everything Viral on Facebook.

      To conclude, post on your page at least once a day to keep up with your edge rank and be consistent.

    On all my site/blogs, which are mostly based on Wordpress, i am using the "share-this" plugin which has all the buttons. Otherwise i am not doing any "active" FB promotion except that i link on FB and tweet once i write a new post...

    I am simply not that much into FB..unless i want to know what my Ex does or similar. And forget about twitter since i think twitter is extremely annoying as a "communication platform". I know, i fail at "social marketing", but then i never really needed it.

      Nice points but I want to clear one thing here that you don't need to have 25 fans on Facebook now to add your username to your fanpage. Now you can instantly use your username with Fanpage.

      Facbook users generally enjoys images and funny videos so I would suggest to keep sharing these stuff to make your engagement interesting with audiences.

    Buy Facebook page likes cheap. For a start, your page will get seen by real people, while they like it, and even though they are randoms, they will still see all your updates. I link to my Facebook pages from my site, even the home page, from You Tube videos, articles, blog comments, forum posts, and I cross link my Facebook pages to each other. I'm starting to see some of my pages ranking on Google. Photos, interaction, lots of text and tabs, regular updates, likes, SEO. This is how you make a popular Facebook page.

    Hi Ninar,

    Here are 4 ways to promote your site on Facebook.

    First, you should have a Wordpress blog with your own name in the domain. It can be used as a central hub to let your subscribers and readers know what you've got going online. So you might want to consider linking to your blog with Facebook. You can do this in the following ways:


    1. Networked Blogs application allows to create a community around your blog.
    What you can do:
    • Verify your authorship by asking your friends to confirm it (send maximum 20 confirmation requests in a bulk):
    • Invite friends: you can invite all your friends at once (of course, they will have to sign up for the app to both confirm your authorship and join your blog network).
    • Add your blog details (blog name, URL, tagline and description, feed URL, up to 3 tags).
    2. RSS connect application offers to add a blog or any RSS feed to your wall or boxes tab or create a fully customizable tab dedicated to your feeds.
    You will be able to :
    1. Add a box to your profile wall;
    2. Add a box to your boxes tab;
    3. Create a customizable tab for your feed.
    3. Simplaris Blogcast (there are many similar apps but this one is my favorite) integrates an existing blog into Facebook “to increase your visibility and share your content with all your friends”. Make sure to configure it to make the profile links go to your site directly.


    4. “Share a link” option can be accessed from your profile page:
    • Specify the link;
    • Hit “preview”;
    • (Important) Choose the correct image;
    • Click “post”
    Hope that helps,

      Speaking about "Promotion of a Website on Facebook", very foremost step is to create the Facebook Fan page. These fan pages can be easily created and link right to the owner's personal account. It is very easily to build those subscribers and followers to your content.

      Facebook fan pages are pretty simple to make and use and stay connected. They're essentially pages that are almost similar to a users profile in terms of functionality, that contain walls, photos, videos and little more. That's perfectly fine, because it allows that level of interaction with users.

      That is, there is no limitation for number of users that can follow and interact on that page. Once can send out quick messages, share links, upload photos and videos and do other things that can get readers back on the website.

      But simply creating a Facebook fan page isn't enough. You have to work out on promoting your fan page to get good amount of users and decent visibility on Facebook. You can thus smartly use it as a discussion area for your subscribers and a way to interact with your Websites visitors.

    You can use different approaches to make Facebook work for you..

    It really depends on which kind of website you are wanting to promote...

    If you determined which kind of website you have, you will need to make some "creative content" that people will like.

    From experience I can tell you that contests on Facebook are very popular!

    Create fan page for you website. Then create an Facebook API that shows your fan page fans and put it in your website. So you're fan page will be visible on your website and visitors can easily like your page.

    Make your fan page updated, share some useful contents. Build branding and gain the trust of your fans. In that way, you can easily generate visitors to your website.
