How to Promote Your Facebook Page

Jose Garcia - Wednesday, December 02, 2009 Bookmark and Share

A promotion is a good way to reach out to your customers and make them aware of your Facebook page. Promotions can be discount or prizes to those who become fans.

Tell fans to leave you feedback about products and services. Be ready for good and bad comments. This is a given with social marketing.

Engage with Fans
This is done through conversation. You will have to spend some time reading and providing feedback. Your content must be interesting, engaging and of value to keep them interested. This can be done through photos, videos, messages, announcements and more.

Facebook has a tool called Insights which lets you see the type of content your fans enjoy interacting with.
