How would you like to increase your Facebook page? Many freelance writers, authors, businesses, and professionals have Facebook fan pages for different reasons. Authors and freelance writers use them to increase book sales and or gain clients. If your fan page doesn’t have many fans, talking about Facebook could change that. This sounds off beat but it’s true. People like to read about Facebook. Freelance writers can write blogs or articles about FB as a way to engage fans to discuss the posts.
Remember, there are many Facebook fan pages to select from on Facebook. What makes your fan page special? I’ve been asking myself this lately. I have a strong Twitter following but would like to increase my FB fan base. How can I do this? I can talk about Facebook on my fan page, hold contests, encourage discussions, and provide ‘unique’ content. These strategies are a good start to attracting fans.
Other ways to gain fans for your Facebook page
- Talk about Facebook.
- Write unique content.
- Be controversial.
- Ask your fans what they want.
- Encourage discussions amongst your fans.
- Buy advertising on FB.
- Hold contests and give away a product or service.
If you have a desire to be a best-selling author, you’ll want to market and sell your books. Authors can use a FB fan page to interact with fans and strengthen their communication skills. If you’re shy (some writers are), your FB fan page is a great way to get over your shyness. Remember, your fans paid money for your books and want to feel a connection to you. Encourage fans to discuss the characters in your book or how they relate to the topic of your non-fiction book. You’ll increase your fan page in no time.
Increase your Facebook fan page by talking about Facebook. Test it out and see what happens. You may be surprised how you attract fans. Make sure you ask family, friends, and colleagues to ‘like’ your fan page. In fact, they could spread the word for you. After all, word-of-mouth advertising is still the #1 way to advertise!
