Facebook Fan Page Promotion

Updated on November 27, 2014

What is a Facebook Fan Page?

What is a facebook fan page? It's a FB page specific to a business or a common interest rather than a personal page. Those who make a facebook fan page do so in order to market a business or to collect fans of a certain topic in one place online. Then once you make a facebook fan page, you can can communicate to all fans regularly on their personal feed.

A facebook business page needs fans and subscribers, and the more the merrier. Learn how to promote a facebook fan page below. Learn about web promotion in social media, how to get fans on facebook in a wide variety of ways, how to find and use the new apps as well as other unique and creative ways to tweak your link and draw fans and traffic to your page.

Did you know there are over 20 million people becoming fans at facebook each day? Below you will find an ever-growing collection of learning about facebook fan pages; how to make the most of them, including the best apps (plus some you might be be careful about) and how to use them to grow your facebook fan page.

How to Create a Facebook Business Page - If you haven't yet created a facebook page, you'll find all the steps at the link below.

A facebook fan page or a facebook business page is entirely different from a personal page. This discussion is about the business page on facebook, not the personal kind.

Make Your FB Fan Page Stand Out!

Dare to be Different! Give your facebook fans something they don't see everday... give 'em somethin' to talk about.

Go beyond the basic page format. Use a variety of different types of media to enhance the participation & engagement of your fans. Make the first timer's visit something to talk about and keep coming back by making your page stand out from the crowd.

Getting interaction going among fans rules, so think outside the box about ways to do this. Ask questions, do a poll, or host a sale or a contest. Find ways to invite and reward interaction from fans.

How to Adjust Your Facebook Feed - Facebook Filters What You See in the Feed

Recently facebook has applied changes that filter the results seen in a feed from a business facebook page. Unless you are paying to promote those posts, the reach may very well be limited. There's a way to adjust that. See how in the image below.

Facebook is the Hotel California of the new millenium.

You can log out anytime you like, but you can never leave.

Beware of 'Get 10,000 Fans' Program - Designed specifically for facebook fan page marketing, this program by Brian Moran is controversial.

A guy named Brian Moran has developed an impressive program being highly advertized on facebook that claims to get you 10,000 fans to your FB fan page. It has been heavily promoted and may be very tempting, however after searching into this a bit deeper, there is some controversy.

10,000 Fans Warning: There's a monthly fee for the program, and if you ever want to cancel the program, you will lose your facebook fanpage and all of your fans! SURE you want that risk?

Do you want your facebook fanpage under that much control? If you put huge amounts of work into a fanpage this way, they have massive control. What if you can no longer afford the monthly fees? or they raise the fees considerably? You can't change your mind later without losing the page and starting all over again.

Often promises of thousands of fans are just numbers, you may get the numbers but likely they are just empty accounts. You'll get no interaction from such fake accounts at all. Numbers may 'look' good, yet may be only for looks.

Some say that Moran also hypes this as 'his program' when it actually originated elsewhere. Learn more about this controversial program at the link below, a forum visited regularly by seasoned internet marketing pros.

Keeping Up with Facebook Changes - Just like Google, Facebook makes sudden algorithm changes that upset people.

'Promoted Posts' (or PP) was a recent change made by facebook that has many owners of facebook business pages up in arms. They saw a dramatic drop in reach, or the number of their fans who actually were able to view their posts.

The bottom line is that we do not own FB or any social media. They are effective tools for sure, but owners can and will make abrupt changes without warning that could have disastrous results, so it is best not to put all eggs in one basket - especially when you do not own the basket.

Changes are inevitable, and keeping up with all of them can be very time-consuming. Keeping business and website promotion spread wide and flexible enough to withstand the brunt of unexpected changes to social media sites is crucial.

Below are two interesting articles about such changes. The first discusses reasons behind recent major changes on FB. However If you read the comments, you will see that many are not buying it. They do not believe that FB made these changes for any reason beyond their own greed. The second article discusses these type of changes as being inevitable within social media or any web platform that you do not own. It offers a wise perspective toward facing such changes with an online business in a healthier way than just complaining about it.

Facebook Reach to Fans on Business Pages - How to Make Sure You Get ALL Updates

More changes at facebook now limit the amount of people who even see your posts. Apparently this does not apply if you are paying facebook to promote posts. If not, here's a way to fix that.

      There is no more "Suggest to Friends" facebook button, but there are great apps for your fan page that are even better. All your fan page visitors will be able to invite their friends to your fan page. Take a look at http://www.pagesuggester.com it's one of the best!

      Great info! However it is indeed very difficult to get people like your fan page unless you have really good content on your page. So Quality content is very important. Another thing is the way in which you build a strong online relationship on your page. You need to communicate effectively with your fans so that they will trust you and your business.

      This is definitely a useful lens. Facebook has some documentation but is not advertised enough, and easy to find, and a lot of people just using trial an error method to learn things, but it is a waist of time,
