5 Top Tips To Increase Your Facebook Fan Base

Facebook is a great place to advertise your fan page. If you ensure you regularly follow through gaining fans and keeping them happy, your fan base will continue to grow. With this in mind, here are five tips to make your fan page increase in popularity and allow you to increase your fan base:

1. Click ‘Suggest to Friends’

Once your Facebook fan page has been published it is the time to attempt to spread it out as much as possible through your friends. If they accept your invitation to “like” your fan page, they will be your first “fans”. Start trying to think of as many people as possible who you know. Ask your friends to suggest your page to their friends as well, both on Facebook and through any other methods they are happy to use, such as email, Twitter etc. You could also try emailing friends who don’t appear to be on Facebook already, and this might encourage them to join.

2.  Add Comment And Links To Other Facebook Pages

If you are a fan of other Facebook pages, add your comments and links on their status updates. You will be more likely get the best results by posting your comments to pages that have a vast number of fans, and by being one of the first people to comment on updates made on those pages. Post a link to your Facebook fan page on other Facebook groups or pages. This is another method of attracting more fans.

3. Use Contests As An Incentive For Your Fans

Let your fans win something fairly regularly, such as weekly or monthly. Try asking each winner if they wouldn’t mind uploading a photo of themselves holding the item if this is possible, and ask them to tag themselves in the photo they’ve uploaded. This is a great way of encouraging them to spread the word. Many fans will be happy to do this because they’ll be grateful and excited. These photos will then appear on your Facebook page in a ‘Fan Photos’ folder and the tagged photos will also appear in their own stream. This will encourage their friends to have a look at your page.

4. Put Your Facebook Link On Other Social Media Sites

Try, for example, using your Twitter address link box to place your Facebook page URL rather than a site address. Curiosity will be likely to cause a lot of your Twitter followers to click and follow through to your Facebook page.

Ensure you share other people’s Facebook updates as this will encourage them to share your Facebook updates with their followers and fans.

5. Keep Your Page Worth Visiting

People will be more likely to continue visiting your page and sharing your content if you keep it regular, interesting, and updated. You want people to share that content, so ensure that it is the type of content people love to share, such as photos, videos, and links to interesting articles etc.

Try using quizzes, surveys, quotes etc, to draw in interest. Regularly ask questions in order to encourage people to comment on your page, therefore making the comments show up in their stream for friends to read.
