Give away free items to loyal or potential customers. Offer free products or discounts to subscribers when they join. Update your Facebook page with the winners, and repeat this any time you want more fans.
Be sure that anything that you post online has a link to your Facebook page on it. If you publish a blog, configure Facebook to automatically include a link and summary of your post. It’s also possible to rig it so that any time you post a tweet, it is immediately posted to your Facebook wall.
Make a group rather than a page. This can encourage subscribers to make a community online and communicate regularly. Do not hesitate to use a page and a group so your subscribers can receive your updates through your page and share their own content on your group.
The key to successful marketing with Facebook is having a strong base of fans. You should have 5,000 fans or more before you really start investing in marketing. Large numbers of fans will cause the rate of conversation to skyrocket.
Facebook ads can be a good investment. You can alter your ad to your customer base to maximize profit. You can set a budget and work only as much as you want to. There isn’t a huge contract either. The ad can be paused, discontinued or deleted at any time.

Rather than thinking Facebook is just for kids or people to get in touch with each other, realize how powerful it is for marketing purposes. Once you begin marketing on Facebook, it won’t be long before your efforts have paid off. Use this information to guide you through effectively marketing your business on Facebook.
