How to Gain Facebook Fans

By


 

1. Embed the Facebook widget on your website. It’s all about ease of use.  If it’s easy for someone to like you, they might just do it.  If you have a blog or website, and are willing to give it a try, embed the widget to your site and see if you gain friends.

2. Send out a newsletter to your database and ask them to ‘Like You’.  Like mama always said, “you won’t get something unless you ask for it”.  In your next company newsletter, add a graphic that ask your customer to like you!

3.Put it in your email signature.  If your like me, and all you do is send emails all day long, what better way is there?  Better yet, add a page on your website with all your links in 1 place.

4. Add a landing page to your Facebook page.  This only helps if you actually get someone there.  If you have a nice graphic, might make your customer think twice before clicking to see what their friend had for dinner last night.

5. Have your fans upload photos and tag themselves (Or Other Contest). This is one that we are going to try this month.  We are going to run a “Worst Website” contest where users can upload a screenshot of their crummy website.  Hopes are they will tag themselves, get other users to comment, and the person with the most comments wins.  Ill let you know how this one goes.  Watch our Facebook page for more info.

6. Facebook Ads. When all else fails, buy friends!  Run a Facebook ad, they are not that expensive.  Also, you can really dig down and target a specific geographic and demographic.  They make it easy to set up as well.

7. Like you by text. Have not really tried this one, but some people just like to text.  So have them send a text to your Facebook ‘like’ text number.  Give it a try, send “like blackbeardesign” to 32665.

8. Comment on other pages and use the @ sign to make a link to your page.  Hopefully someone will wonder who the heck you are and click to get more information on you.  You never know who might find you!

By the way, no Facebook pages were harmed during the creation of this post.  Well, hope that gives you some ideas you might not have thought of.  If you have another idea, please leave a comment.  I need more friends just like you.

    I think that implementing facebook in your web design is always a good idea if you’re working for a company. It’s important that people recognize that you’re able to socially connect with them. Great tips. http://www.kesslerdesigns.com
