Tips for promoting newly created Facebook Fan Page

So you have finished creating your first Facebook fan page and seeking more help to promote it further. In this post, I’m going to introduce some basic techniques that one can follow to improve their Facebook page, for getting additional fans and for better communication on their Facebook page.

Add Basic Details

Ad all basic details when you are creating your Facebook Fan page like profile image, what the page is about, founded date, website URL, company overview, mission and products. Add notes and boxes to your Facebook page for detailed information about a topic or for showing some of your best blog posts with images.

Choosing a good Facebook page name

First thing that you have to do is choose the best name for your Facebook page. Don’t choose generic or long page name, why not create a page by the name of your business or website. Once you are finalized with the page name, stick to it.

Choosing a Good Address (URL) for your page

Another thing that you have to do is choosing a good username i.e. URL for your Facebook page. You can select the username for your Facebook page from www.facebook.com/username here. But when choosing the username, make sure you are very comfortable with that name and will be able to abide by that in the long term. I would suggest including your business or website name as your username if it’s available. For my Facebook page, I choose a user name SFMBlog, so URL to my Facebook page will become as http://www.facebook.com/SFMBlog as I have 25 fans to my Facebook page.  You have to wait by the time you have 25 fans to your  Facebook page when you will be able to migrate to this short, easy to remember and seo friendly URL for our Facebook page. And when you have 25 fans to your facebook page, choose a good URL for your Facebook page.

Ask your friends to Join Facebook

One of the major step that you can take is using the ‘Suggest To Friends’ feature available on Facebook where you can send invitations to all of your friends list in your email account to Join Facebook. And once some of your friends accept your invitation, you have the option to promote your Facebook page among those friends.

Facebook page Badge on Your blog

Why not create a Facebook badge for your page and start showing it on your blog. This way, you will be able to get more visitors to your Facebook fan page and thus more fans to your Facebook page.

Sharing Options

You may ask some of your friends to become fan of your Facebook page if they already are active on Facebook. Apart from this, you may think of using your Facebook fan page in all of your email signatures, discussion forum signatures, in the Author Bio section in your guest posts and on Ezine Publishing websites. And if you are sending newsletters, ask people to become a Fan of your Facebook page. Talk about your Facebook fan page on your blog, on your Twitter account and in the discussions where it looks natural.

Start some discussions

Add a discussion section on your Facebook page and start some discussion there. Start some interesting threads in this section and see how people respond to your threads.

Keep Patience and don’t spam

You should keep patience towards the progress of your Facebook page. It will take some time before you actually get 25 fans to your page. And don’t spam other people on the Facebook otherwise you are taking the risk of your account being banned on Facebook permanently. Don’t add too many people to your friends list in day, increase it gradually.
