    Smile Facebook Fan Pages

    Hi guys nice to meet you all. Its good to be a part of this forum. I know you're interested with Facebook. Feel free to read this one and let me hear some thoughts from you. With the fact that Facebook can really affect our society today, I can say that it is the best tool to communicate and can even use for business purposes. One of the most interesting features of Facebook to facilitate the needs of business owners to drive insane traffic to their site is thru the use of Facebook Fan Page. A fan page is recognized by many as a great tool to further expand your social network, interact with your clients and customers and promote your company. Coupled with the fact that Facebook fan pages are accessible even by those that are not already registered on Facebook, can advance your potential for exposure. What do you think of making your business go viral with this Facebook stuff?

    If you use it right it's not that bad. on my latest project i have an average of 6-10k readers for each post there, and most posts has of course a link back to the full post on my site, or other relevant stuff on my site.

    the fanpage also have a form to sign up at my list, which got me more than 1k new signups in just a few weeks.

    the site is new and still under construction, so i can't complain...

    I have 4 fanpages at the moment...

    the quality of the traffic - from an economical perspective, is not the best - but it helps...

    Well I guess, Facebook Page is the best start in promoting viral marketing, but still it's the content of the page is what the viewers looking at. Make sure that what you have advertise is attainable and realistic because people would not have much time looking at spammy pages

    Fanpage in facebook is the door to get traffic dramatically for your site and sales e.g if you fill the appropriate details of your site. What i like in fan page is that you can monitor where your visitors are coming from, their age and, their gender etc. At the moment I like the traffic I'm getting from facebook fan page.

    Actually, while this one is a good marketing strategy, it is quite hard to accomplish. For one, your Facebook fan page needs to be good enough that the people themselves would be the one promoting it.

    I use facebook to attract additional traffic for my websites although i haven't tried fan pages yet. I use the wall posting feature although its a bit time consuming. But overall Im getting decent traffic from it.

    Facebook I think is very effective ONLY IF you can get to your target audience/users
    it's sometimes very hard to get to the right people because you cannot contact them if you're not their friend
    compared to say twitter where u can follow anyone you like

    Facebook is definitely great if you can harness it's 'power', so to speak

    Facebook can be a great source of quality traffic but the key is to combine other factors into the equation such as social bookmarking and other websites. I've gotten a couple fan pages rocking this way.
