Getting more Facebook Fans

Discussion in 'Facebook' started by hcbeggar, Jun 3, 2009.

    Alright, so recently I joined the Social Networking site Facebook and have been having a lot of fun with it from a personal standpoint.

    Now I have a business where I distribute actual surveys for 4 different legitimate survey organizations. I mainly used my opt-in list from my actual website. However, A little while after joining facebook, I realized that I could create my own Survey Beggar Fan Page. It seemed like a great idea because I could find more "fans" and send them "updates" with new surveys that I receive. I can even do a little targeting with their service.

    So, in the beginning, I emailed all my personal friends on Facebook and told them what I was doing and asked them to become a fan and also to "suggest to their friends. Well, in two days I picked up 70 fans...mainly a mix of my personal and some 1 degree away.

    Now I am stuck at 78. How can I get more "fans" to my page. I tried paying for Facebook ads but that seems a waste thus far. Any ideas for those who are using facebook pages or groups on how you got more members?

    Thanks for all your help.

    facebook ads are a waste of time.

    you should update your page reguarly and each time you get a new survey, email the list. i assume you're paying people to take surveys, so get some success testimonials up there, and hopefully your friends will tell their friends.

    also, you can submit your facebook pages to social bookmarking sites like any other website.

    I never thought to add them to my social bookmarking...thanks for that tip.

    Also, can you add your facebook fan page to directories or the minor search engines?

    or do they drop it cause they are sub-pages?

    Well I personally own a few pages with over a million fans.

    Here is how I do it:

    1. Make a bunch of fake accounts ( I have 160 to date)
    2. Get people to add you as a friend. How? Easy join the mob wars/mafia wars pages/groups where people need to add you to build their mafia/mob size, other apps work too. Join add me groups, get email lists and send out invites.
    3. Now set up a page, add some content and add page to 10 fake accounts, every 4-5 days add another 5-6 fake accounts, this keeps the page under the highlights on users main page more often.
    4. Use your fake accounts to suggest to friends (takes about 2 days to get an account to 4000-5000 friends) now once you build up to 100+ accounts your laughing.

    Even if you are inflating your numbers, thats still very impressive.

    And make sure you create a group with some stupid title that compels others to get their friends to join. After that it will start doing the work for you. Also adding/sharing/suggesting to "average looking" people will get you the best results.

    Hey my friend,

    Your work is truly inspiring. If you could help me on my journey to a ton more FB fans that would be awesome, and I would be forever grateful.

    I am wondering where you find the 'add me' groups and the email lists, and if you could be a little more detailed on adding content and then adding the page to 10 fake accts. I guess I need a little clarification on exactly what you do. Thank you very much for your time and expertise. Email me directly...that would be great

    do you authorize each account with a mobile or just let it build with people requesting you? I wonder what the limit is "per mobile"

    I think ur page must have something attractive, maybe a bonus or something else, then suggest it to your friends. Ask them to ask their freinds to follow your page

    Other way to add fans is creating your twitter account, since not everyone is your friend there will be many(diverse) people interested on you.

    I bought 10000 facebook fans on www.socialkik.com for my Business Fan page and I immediately started seeing the conversion rate of Orders/Visitors on my online store increase dramatically! That was the best advertising investment I made !
