    The best way to promote you business is create another profile and bang on some good looking girl. Just talk about your site and you won't believe how much attention you'll get from people (Especially the guys).

    I've noticed that many companies do this on MySpace as well as Twitter, many people fall for it. I've never done this myself, but if you want to do it "in a clean way" I'd suggest making an application like other suggested.

    Someone I work with has had great success with the paid ads on facebook, and he even prefers them to PPC now. Very targeted ad campaigns are possible.

    I think I read once that there is some VISA app you can add that will give you $100 free facebook ad credit.

    yeah, I also noticed that. and there are some who will send you messages like, hey! how was the party last night? then you replied and asked them about it and they replied pretending that he know you until that person will tell you about their business.

    Tried once...no luck. I guess it depends on your business niche.

    I use a number of social networking sites so dont just focus on one. If you want to promote your site network with others like you and your friends, be normal do your thing dont just be all business otherwise people will look at you as spam and eventually you will waste your time.

    The BEST way is to start up groups that are relevant and helpful and have members join. Then give them daily tips and strategies. Make them feel like they are getting something and then upsell them every once in a while.

    I tried once with paid ads, got 15,000 impressions and 35 clicks to a playstation games site...got 100% bounce rate, 0 clicks, and no time on the site.

    Basically people would click and close the window. Not even a bite. Not sure how those people with "make money online" ads actually sell anything.

    Promote Business with Facebook

    Other than posting photos on your Facebook profile of your product to show potential clients, what else can I do with Facebook to promote my business?

    Thanks, Karen

    Chances are the people on facebook are your friends. They probably wouldn't like you spamming. Contribute, be sociable and for god sakes be yourself on facebook. If you get a bit of business through it, be greatful. However, don't go in looking for it!
    I agree with that. A few real estate agents that I know kept posting "IF your looking for a house or know anybody....." (you get the picture) and their friends list was getting smaller everyday and they couldn't figure out why.....I wonder!? One person even asked my associate if they could stop posting this on their profile(obviously not very Facebook literate)lol.

    An application, a fan page and posting links or videos will be the best strategy that I have in mind.

    You can add more friends and then send emails to them inviting them on your websites or you can post links to your site or add them to your daily updates. Say, if you have a new blog post o product and service you promote, be sure to post it in your daily updates intended for what you are doing.

    I did and this was before the PPC. It was based on impressions and I only got 2 visits, out of the 10,000 impressions I bought, to the website that I was tracking and one of those was a bounce. I haven't used the PPC on there yet but I'm sure it would be a better use of your money the the impressions. Just think how many impressions are wasted when someone is quickly clicking through a photo album!

    I think Creating app accoding to your site. Make the app small and usefull but it releates to your site any how. As facebook is a community, you will get many peoples who can be interested in your app and then your site.

    Facebook isn't an immediate traffic generator but over time you can start to get traction. Mostly, find friends with similar interests and get to know them. Post updates in your status, invite people to groups, get them to join fan pages.

    Facebook apps, if done well, can of course take off incredibly but it takes a lot of work.

    that's an oxymoron

    unless, of course, you're operating in myspace mode, where you become "friends" with as many total strangers as possible
