    You can use Facebook for collecting contact information from your page and/or building a list of prospects. All you have to do is to embed an opt-in form on your FB or fan pageso that it would be easy for you to gather contact info of people who like or visit your page. In this way, you can get your FB contacts into your own email list.

    Run as contest or a sweepstakes on your fan point your ad to it. Make it fan gated so that you can get a viral effect (about 95% of people will go through the fan gate). When they enter your sweepstakes, they must give there email address as part of there entry, this way you build a email list that you can market to later.

  • Marketing people use Facebook as abridge to their website. By having a Facebook page and sharing details of your website to the said page, the chances of gaining more traffic to the website will increase because millions of people are using it everyday.

    Other business people use it as their business grounds. I've seen a lot of Facebook pages which are mostly about online shopping. They market/advertise their brands/products especially those tangibles (clothes, shoes, apparels etc...), and that's how they gain money through it.

    Engage with the users. Provide content that is sought after. Too much promotion of your products or services isn't treated well.

      Yes, facebook ads seems to be very expensive and less result giving as compared to Adwords. In this case, you can go for a facebook page, and promote this via the following ways;

      1. Tell it to your friends and make them like on the page.
      2. Ask them to share the same with their friends.
      3. Make the page more attractive with images and informational things.
      4. Regularly update the page with your updates.
      5. Try to integrate some apps in that page, such as contests etc. That will be more helpful for page promotion.

  • Facebook ads can be a good source of traffic and facebook pages can be another. Facebook ads are paid but if you can put some effort and build a facebook page with a lot of fans in it, it will be a bigger asset for you.

    One of the best things about using Facebook for your business is that you can create a ‘cool’ image. Branding is important in today’s aggressive and competitive business environment. Having a Facebook page makes your business appear hip and trendy, ready to go with the times. The ‘boring’ tag can be a disastrous for a business, especially if your target audience is the youth. By using Facebook, you project a very current and contemporary outlook. The dynamics of traditional business marketing have undergone a quantum shift. Keep with the times to make your business a success.

    Actually, I also made a new account for my Facebook pages. I'm very particular about my online identity that's why I have a different e-mail address, facebook account, twitter account, etc. for my other business identity.
