1- Create a quality image:Before sharing your new business Facebook fan page with your contacts make sure you have good cover photo and a profile picture. And Yes, keep your images consistent with your corporate or products images. Either if its a logo or an image that represents your products or services, it is very important that images have a good resolution and are adapted to sizes predetermined by Facebook : the cover photo is of 851 × 315 pixels and the profile: 160 × 160 pixels. Images blurry or colors that don't match can give a bad image of your page.
2- Share it with family and friends:
For the first round of "likes" our recommendation is to go to your closest circle which is your family and friends. By the time you have put together a Facebook business page, your friends and family had already been aware of all the hard work you put into your real business and they undoubtedly like it. Send them e-mails with a link to the page or directly invite them using the "invite friends" button located in the administrative panel of your page.
3- Give personality to your page:
The first impression of your Facebook business page is your logo and personal image. Give personality to your page with a profile image that gives a personal touch to your page. For example, if you're a hotel, share images and recipes of the chef, beauty tips from the spa maids, etc. Don't limit yourself to share news, videos or photographs that you've seen on other websites/blogs. The easiest way to personalize your page is creating your own content.
4- Link your Facebook page with other promotional materials:
Don't forget to link to your Facebook fan page from your website and from the newsletter that you send to your customers. You can also incorporate the link of your FB fan page in the signature of all your e-mails. If you have business cards, brochures, posters, etc. put the link to your Facebook page there as well. An effective alternative is to create a QR code that scanned takes the person directly to your page. QR codes are ideal for packaging if you sell a physical product or "Menu" if your business is a restaurant.
5- Connect with your fans and get new fans with special promotions:
Once your family members, friends, contacts and customers already "liked" your page the process of acquisition of new likes & fans becomes slower. To keep a steady rising of your "likes" and accelerate the growth of your FB business fan page we recommend a strategy that's as old as 'commerce' itself, i.e., Offer 'FREE' trials, give out coupon codes, Free stuff to download, use promotional campaigns to speak about your business, etc... This way you're offering a direct incentive to people making easier for everyone to like and become a fan of your page.
6 Use Facebook Ads:
You don't have to count with a multinational company budget to promote your business with Facebook ads. With only spending $5 to $10 dollars a day one can can get good results since you only pay for the clicks you receive on your ad. The biggest benefit of Facebook ads is the segmentation that offers by location, age, gender and interests.
The next step would be to take care of your existing fans and continue to grow your business Facebook page. Our recommendation in this case is that if you don't have the necessary time to dedicate to your FB fan page delegate or outsource its management to a professional social media services company. These professional services will help you get 1000 Facebook likes quick and safe in a totally new level.
