Facebook Marketing - Create Fans


With over 1.55 billion active Facebook users each month, it is important for your business page to be able to tap in to your target market and start growing a fan base. Although this may be a daunting task initially, as the page grows in good content it should also increase in popularity.

Growing a solid fan base is important because −

  • It gives people a reason to trust you.
  • It is an indication of popularity.
  • The more fans you have; the more site traffic you should get.
  • It helps with your SEO strategy.

Once you have created your page, utilize your own personal network and add as many people as you can from your private Facebook page. You can also ask people in your closer network to share the page with their friends.
