To get more fans on your Facebook fan page, regular posts, shares and comments are not the only way.
Facebook is a social network, and to create a prominent presence on a social network, you need to build relationships with people, not just interact with them.
This article will discuss what you need to do other than Facebook fan page design to be more popular and get more fans.
1 . Everyone wants to be heard. Everyone has a story to tell and they want a listener for that story. You will have to become that listener. Pay attention to what your target customers have to say and provide feasible solutions to their problems. Even if they do not need a solution, offer helpful advice. Be genuinely helpful here and do not try ‘push sell’ anything. Extending a hand of help will definitely get people interested to become your fans.
2 . Offer something of value to your fans. Hold contests and fun quizzes to get them involved. This would bring them closer to your brand. Valuable information will definitely spread the word.
3 . Another way to get people involved is to post interesting content. This would get more users to like your status and add their comments as well. You do not have to post something related to your products/services. Just see to it that your posts are entertaining.
4 . Arrange some monthly or weekly events to increase awareness about your products/services. Make sure these events are interesting enough to be a part of.
5 . Seek advice from your fans. People love to share their thoughts and advice to others. Present problems to them and ask for advice. Let them talk. Appreciate their advice and tell them that you are going to do as they have advised. Like their comments and share some of them. Thank them for their time.
6 . Having a presence on social media is like having a conversation. If a new person becomes your fan, start a conversation with him/her. But do not rant about how great your products/services are. Talk to them the way an ordinary person talks to a new acquaintance. Listen to their needs, and ‘suggest’ (do not offer) one of your products.
7 . Bear in mind that the dynamics of the web world and the physical world are not the same. They do not work the same way. Most users on the net are skeptical when they search the internet for something because of obvious reasons such as the absence of the physical touch and feel. This absence creates a distance between the customer and the business owner. Refrain from using the marketing or sales jargon of the physical world in your Facebook page.
Finally, understand the fact that you will actually do more harm than good if you keep on posting comments and messages about the quality of your products and/or services.
