    I think that "blind" adding links is not bad but you must to know the value of such links because you can spent less time and add some links from 5 good sites that will give more results than 15 links from some unknown sources

    Well, nobody said that he/she will rely on facebook for his/her promotional campaign. Anyway, in my opinion, facebook is a good place to promote your site because of its millions of users which eventually benefit you if you're going to connect with people that will or that might get interested with what you offer.

    selectively build friends, join groups which you are interested in, then add friends from those groups, you are limited by the number you can add per day so limit the number of people you add, next never accept a friend request unless it is from one of those groups you joined

    never accept the applications as you will get spammed but if you limit your friends to those in groups then it should not be a problem.

    once you hit 500 friends then create a group and sent invites to your friends, create a squezze page and invite your friends to a webinare/event..

    Hi todin,
    Fals is very right in this suggestion as face-book's traffic is only from your friends group and you can get more by it. you can also use other SN sites like squidoo and stumble upon fro this purpose as they can generate more traffic for your site.

    I personally don't like facebook used as a promotion tool, I prefer to submit articles.

    You can add more friends, join some community of same interest, make your own group, make personal contact with some of your professional friends added in facebook, don't add anyone and everyone be specific to target a area of customers in which you want to improve. Make some good quiz and make it interesting and related to your site.

    This may help a lot.

    The more friends you have at facebook the more exposure your site gets. But of course if your target market is not among them, chances are its not of help. Knowing your market is very important.

    For me and my niche (t-shirts) facebook has been golden...do I think its good for promotion/brand awareness - yes...why?

    Well, I just created a fan page (which I suggest you do, fanpages are, in my eyes better than groups as they make interaction and engagement easier - more interactions = more eyeballs to find out about your product/service etc) about 2.5 months ago and it is now just shy of 1,300 fans..Sadly, I don't have that many friends but thankfully now about at least 1,300 people know of my brand...

    The way I see it, to use facebook successfully for promotion you cannot be in sales mode, you can't be Mr. Gung-ho Pitch, you have to open, honest, transparent and give "fans" something that they can't get elsewhere...give them incentives to join, give them reasons to engage with you...if one fan leaves a comment on your page then all of that fans friends will see the comment in their wall field - if it is a positive review or something favorable then some of the fans friends might check out your fanpage..

    There are quite a few things I've done to help grow our fanpage like:
    - Competitions run via the fanpage
    - discount for "fav t-shirt is.." (or whatever is appropriate for your niche)
    - Keep interacting
    - Create a poll
    - Ask your friends to join
    - Fanpage Exchanges
    - Facebook Ads
    - Targets
    - Blogs
    - Website

    ..I expand on all of these things in my blog which hopefully might be of some use to some of you...The blog is geared towards t-shirts (as that is my niche) but the ideas and principals are applicable to any area...

    Ultimately, I think its how you view facebook - facebook should be used to foster a relationship and build trust, not to open and close a deal/sale/whatever...

    Two possible ways to promote your website on facebook without using facebook ads.

    1- Create Fan pages and let the friend's know about your pages.
    2- Build Facebook Application and run your own banners.

    if you join a certain group in facebook, make sure that the group is relevant to your niche. you invite people who joined the group. you can put a status message with the link towards your site.

    Now days with the introduction to social media networks, blogs, forums and social bookmarking sites it is very easy to do a successful campaign and generate loads of quality back links to your website, thus increasing your page rank.The best way to promote through facebook is to submit your site to facebook.Create page and invite friends,Create a twitter account and start a little tweeting,4 or 5 tweets should do it.

    Creating fan page and adding our links on those page will help us to gain traffic.

    I have had great luck with Facebook. The secret is creating incentive driven applications. Facebook users will respond if they get something out of it....

    Facebook is best for being social with your friends. If you want to promote your business with FB, start a FanPage for you business. Keep business and social aspects separate.
