    Yes.

    Just grow your page organically.

    Some of us will invest thousands into Facebook, but I always recommend newcomers learn the free traffic techniques. With some hard work, you can shift some serious traffic from pages and groups.

    Pick a niche that can be viral instead of a niche that may interest a few people, then posting something viral can get you more fans.

    Fan page is the best way to earn a good amount of money. Nowadays the FB's ad may turn on the targeted audience. So most of the people are using this Fan page easily. Beside these, there is no problem to run this page. One can maintain this page easily. Even more than one peoples can get control of one Fan page.

      No. Absolutely the best way is to use Facebook ads, even if you are only on a $5 a day budget, you can specifically target your market and make virtually instant changes to your campaign. The amount of instant granularity is a marketer's dream come true.

      If you don't have money to buy ads on Facebook, try selling your product somewhere else first and use that capital to invest in ads.

        Definitely start your own niche fan page and grow it organically. Watch the trends that go viral and jump on it. I think it was year a ago that phil from duck dynasty who was in the news. Some marketers jumped on making a save Phil fan page and literally had 1 million likes in a day or so.

        • Michael is right.

          Organic reach on Facebook is declining: there's a nice article on FB's website where they clearly explain that organic reach is indeed declining, and that you should use paid ads to reach your target audience.

          If they say so themselves, I guess we should follow their advice :-)

      Ben, they're usually clicks from countries where Facebook charges a very low price per click (mostly "third world" countries, if you excuse the horrible term).

      Anyway, clicks you got for $0.01 end up being not very profitable once they're in your funnel, as you might have guessed.

      Stick to getting clicks for $0.30 - $0.50, it's much better :-)

    Of course you can target the audience you want via FB without having to do FB ads, but you are looking at more work given the methods are free (the ones I know of at least) and you need be extremely consistent.

    I'll explain one way of using FB Groups and another using FB Fan Pages

    So with FB Groups: - You are best contacting people on an individual basis here. Get in touch with them through a private message and talk to them like you would talk to somebody you just met on the street. Do not use cheezy comments like 'hey I am connecting with like minded people''; most people are sick of hearing this phrase. Just talk to them, get to know what business they promote and ask them if they are open to getting help. Never pitch them at this point and only after you have offered them a ton of value do you offer your product/ program as a solution to their problem.

    With FB Fan Pages, a recent strategy I learned was to go to pages related to your niche and where you know you have a highly engaged audience; in the home based business niche a good example is the Tony Robbins fan page. If you look at the threads here you will see a ton of engagement on each comment. Here you want to leave a really VALUABLE comment on the thread; and what happens is that people who have left a comment on the thread (sometimes 6000+) will be notified about your comment. If a good percentage of people read your comment and see you have value to provide then you'll see quite a few friend requests come your way.

    Now provided you are going to use FB as a way to ''build your list'' you need to make sure your profile is OPTIMIZED... in other words, have a clear smiley image of you (and not some pet dog or kids), have a cover photo of you having a good time (this could even be an image of you with your family at some nearby park) and have a lot of value based content on your timeline including tips which will help people in their business.

    I hope this helps - feel free to PM me for more info if you need

    To your success!

      This is a highly-efficient way to . . . lose your FB account. Get enough spam complaints, and in the right time-frame, and it's goodbye all of your hard work.

      Less liable to get you banned, although still probable, but you're literally competing with the dregs of internet marketing, all of whom are spamming the hell out of comments in hopes of getting eyeballs on crazy-sounding systems.

      Seriously . . . not the best approaches.

        Well it all depends how you go about it... are you going to be conservative and do a few a day and provide value or do a MASS invasion and start spamming your links?

        Honestly this method works well for me cause so many people are doing it wrong... all they do is hand out their hand for money!

        With regards to Fan pages I did say where people are HIGHLY engaged... go to the Tony Robbins fan page and you'll know what I am talking about...!

        If you go to some Internet Marketing fan page then you're 100% right.

        People get banned from FB because they do it all wrong by link posting and invade people by the masses.

          Here's the thing...

          I'm a little too tired to correct each of your points, but I will do you a solid (and I hope it'll be taken as such) and try to give you a hand.

          Your approach will lead to a banned account. Full stop.

          I'm correcting you out of courtesy, both to yourself and anyone who might unwittingly heed your advice. Your account, for example, might mean a lot to you. It could mean little - I mean, maybe you have 5,000 PVA accounts, operating through dedicated proxy IPS and different UserAgents, and so on - but it could mean a lot. And if it does, then you're on your way to losing a lot of hard work.

          My business and I have very large interests in social media. The reason I say this is because I know, first hand, how much work goes into growing a page, a group, or a multitude of other presences. So - in a nutshell - I don't want you to lose your account; and the same goes for anyone else who mistakenly thinks private messaging and commenting offers on FB is a good plan.

          Last piece of quick advice: research clean, clever, natural whitehat methods for social growth.

          Hi

          There are ways. But you need to exchange it for time. Here we go....

          #1 Start Your Page

          You start your page. You post one image/article and PIN it. Make
          no major distractions. Just that ONE post and image. Then you add
          the HTML Iframe tab. You name it "Visit *Keyword* Page" so it has
          a longer title then about and photo etc. (Take mindcontrol)

          Now you also make that icon 111x74px for the app. Not that it do much
          on the menu but it will be listed to the left (column) and a nice image is
          better then app default.

          NOW, make sure you are logged in as you page. Not as YOU. Make
          sure you use English as language on FB, so you can use "Graph Search"
          at the top correctly. (To find related pages)

          FIND pages that are or have similar interest. Now is time to do what
          you should be doing. Ask questions. Answer questions. Asking is better,
          but try look like an expert still

          What happens when you post is that you post as a page. (If you are logged
          in as your page, not private person) So people see your page name. They
          can hover over it and click "Like" without visit your page. Or they can easily
          click and visit.

          When they visit you have made you page for one purpose. To make them
          click from it. Or at least going to the iframe. You may post articles and stuff but
          the PINNED post has to be so strong it's either that one or the ifram tab that
          is you CTA (Call To Action).


          Ok, that was pages......

          #2 Groups

          You can't do "pages link" in groups. But you can add signatures

          So IF you are in a related group. Simply end your posts with
          your name. Just like in emails. Below your name:

          Add your signature in form of your page.

          You activate it by enter first letter. Or start with @ followed
          by a letter. Signatures is not spam. They are accepted simply
          cause we see them in emails and forums etc.

          Also if you enter you name and it get's linked. If you use
          back or backspace once you can keep the link but remove
          lastname or any other extra names you do not want there.

          So signature can look like.

          Name - LINKTOPAGE (Why you want to short your fullname)

          or

          Firstname Lastname (Preferred)
          LINKTOPAGE


          Now... both ways are CTA. A user must click on the links.
          So you do not spam or offend. Never use more then 1 link
          unless there is a page and a group for example.

          That is how you can advertise without paying.....

          /Daniel

          P.s Signature can be used on pages as well. This for double exposure (Do that when you have become a pro)

    You can use your fan page link in your group posts. It takes a while to find a list of good groups.
