I’ve put together these 9 easy tips for you to get more Facebook fans on your page.
If you are just starting with a business Facebook page or you are finding it’s just not working well enough for you then use this checklist to get on track.
1 Fully optimize your Facebook page
Every section of your Facebook page should include content that is relevant, helpful and is also searchable. All the content on your page will be indexed by search engines to help to attract more fans to your page.
2 Include a Facebook button on your website
If you have a website or a blog ensure that you have a Facebook button that sends them to your page. This allows those users to follow you on your social media too.
3 Invite your existing contacts to like your page
Send out an invite to your Facebook friends and also to those on your email list. Ask them to kindly like your Facebook page and remind them of the benefit to do so. To get updates about promotions, important dates or your business information. Make sure your employees and colleagues like your page too.
4 Promote your Facebook page offline
If you have a physical store front or office use your front window to display a Facebook sticker so those window shoppers or people walking by know you use social media.
5 Marketing offline
If you use offline marketing like print or radio ensure that you include your Facebook icon or mention to tell those potential customers that you have a business Facebook page.
6 Cross promote
Don’t forget to cross promote on your other social media platforms that you have a Facebook page – twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest etc.
7 Post Valuable Content
Remember to write compelling content to attract and keep your fans. It’s all about long term relationships on social media. You want to have your posts liked and shared so you can be found by new fans.
