  • In the past, many public figures used profiles to connect with friends and family, and Pages to connect with their public audiences. Now, you can use your profile to connect to your public audience too, with the Subscribe button.

  • Add a custom fbml page Use a video message adding a custom landing tab. Studies show that you'll increase your conversion rate (visitors into fans) by having them land on a custom (welcome page) tab vs. straight to the wall. Use a sign-up box ~ be sure to tell them what to do – ie: sign up, visit our site ~ when they sign up, give them something ~ tell them what you do! A few considerations: Width must be no longer than 520 pixels External style sheets may/may not be used – depending on Facebook’s mood that day ;) You can hire people to do this or purchase some templates Set this as your landing page
  • Don’t forget Pinterest

  • Engage Ask questions Be prompt in responding to comments Address people by name Add your own thoughts/comments Hold a Q&A session Thank your fans Use @tags Post between 9am and 2pm when most people are on – experiment with this for your page (post at the top of the hour?) – look at who’s on through your ‘chat’ box, or at what time people are commenting on your posts
  • Charity – or if you want to support one, ask for suggestions on which ones you will support
  • Promotions include contests, competitions, sweepstakes, and drawings. If in doubt, the litmus test is will one or more winners be selected? If so, the rules apply. If you’re just giving away a gift to all your fans, then that’s a giveaway and isn’t affected by the rules.
  • I usually find the tipping point in social media is between 500-1,000 fans/followers/friends/email subscribers . You’ll start to see measurable results with this size group. You’ll be building trust and loyalty among your fanbase with consistently good content and reliable responses. Now you must have a strategy in place to convert your fanbase to paying clients or customers. Perhaps you’ll offer a special event (live or virtual), coupons, discounts and other incentives to give your fans a strong call to action. The bottom line is to let your fans know exactly what you want them to do. And pace your offers. If you’re hosting live/virtual events, be sure to also use the Facebook Events feature. See this post for ideas: 10 Tips for Creating Buzz With Facebook Events . EXAMPLE: discount tickets to Busch Gardens Christmas Town
