      Oh, Facebook fan pages are becoming quite popular. They help you advertise your business, gain top slots in search engine results, and understand your customers properly.

      However, the biggest problem with Facebook fan pages is that it requires time and efforts to promote your fan page and retain the interest of your fans.

      I’m listing here some tips for promoting a Facebook fan page.

      1. Invite your Facebook friends to join your fan list. To invite your friends, you should click on “suggest to friends” on your fan page. If you have categorized your friend lists, then you could easily send invitation to a group in one go. All you have to do is to type the name of the relevant category in the filter section and the invitation will be sent to all friends in the given list.

      2. Ask your friends to forward the link of your Facebook fan page to their friends. This will help you to spread your link to a large number of people.

      3. If you are already using Twitter to advertise your business, you could integrate your Twitter and Facebook advertising effort. For this, you should use the Facebook Fan Page Twitter Application. This will allow your Twitter fans to know what you are up to on the Facebook fan page. Each update will have a back link to your Facebook page. If your twitter followers find your fan page interesting, they might sign up as your Facebook fan.

      4. Give a link to your Facebook fan page on your website. You could also let your visitors know some benefits of joining your fan list. For example, if you have some discounts especially for your Facebook fans you could mention it on your website like, you could write “Become a fan today and avail of exclusive discounts.”

      When I created the fan page, I was also in a similar fix. I didn’t know how to encourage people to sign up as a fan on my business page. I had only 10 fans in the first week. Then, my friend suggested that I should use Facebook social ads. And, it actually worked for me.

      If you don’t know about Facebook social ads, they are the advertisements that are displayed along the side of your Facebook page.

      You must have noticed that if any of your friends becomes a fan, then you get a message like “Kim is a fan of Coca Cola. Would you like to become a fan too?” Most people want to check what their friends find interesting and therefore if your friend becomes a fan it is likely that you would also like to check the relevant business page and you might even become a fan.

      Yeah, I agree that social ads are really powerful. They can help your fan list grow fast. You could even set a daily budget for your Facebook social ads.

      I’d like to emphasize here that the headline of a social ad is only up to 25 characters long. Therefore, you should choose your words carefully. Adding a picture to the ad is a good idea as a picture speaks more than a thousand words. Also, you should test your ads for best results.

      If you use social ads, you should advertise them only to your target audience. For example, if you want that your advertisement to appear next to profiles that just show attorney and law in their job description, you should do selective advertising using keywords. You could also choose to display your ads according to age, gender, education, language, and location of Facebook users. This will make your advertising campaign effective and inexpensive.

      Thnx for the great tip!

      I have given the URL of my Facebook fan page on my business card. This helps my business associates, colleagues and friends to know about my fan page. You should also try advertising your Facebook fan page through business cards. It may help!

      Just click on “promote with an ad” button present on the fan page.

      I have one tip for you. It is not necessary for you to keep running this social ad campaign for long. You could start your campaign and then stop it after 2-3 days and then again start it after a month or so. This is a money saver tip that helps to achieve good results at minimum cost.

      I also tried using social ads for promoting my fan page. The results were amazing. I kept my ad budget at $10 per day and advertised for just five days. I was able to add a large number of fans.

      Should I pay by CPC or CPM?
