Use simple, proven methods that the most popular fan pages employ. That is right, copy what really works and personalize it to your fan base. One of the simplest and most powerful things you can do is provide your pages with the human touch. Yes you should post good quality information about your products and services. The most successful Facebook pages have a knack at connecting with people and showing the fans the owner’s unique personality, creating a bond with them. Once in a while take a break from the information and give them a glimpse into who you are with interesting pictures and posts. You can connect with your fans by allowing them to relate or at least appreciate who you are through your posts. Write your posts like you were writing them to your friends, remember people do business with people they know like and trust. Use this formula to be the most effective, 85 percent information and quality content, 15 percent of your posts which will be personal, motivating and share your world with your fans. Use this formula to build that trust bridge. Think about the pictures that display on your fan page. Remember to use this internet real estate carefully! Here are some picture tips.. Use a 720 x 720 pixel image and you can add text to the image and a link in the picture description, anytime someone gets interested and clicks on the pictures they will have a link right to that product or programs sales page. It is like a mini ad on your page. Use this to also connect with people giving a glimpse into who you are, what you stand for and how much you care.
Create fantastic content, lots of it! Remember to vary your content while some people might love your articles, others prefer and stay more attuned to videos, while yet other like to hear audios. You can cover your bases by creating different content from the same thoughts. Take your written information and create a video, now this doesn't have to show your face reading your article you van very easily make videos from slide shows and screen captures. Use the narration (the actual article content read) as an audio and publish these to many places promoting your content. Remember though the most powerful videos will have a personal video message from you, again connecting, entertaining and educating your fans. Remember the pictures and always add them even to your written content so when you share this on Facebook it makes an interesting status update on your page with a beautiful or compelling photo.
Encourage and maximize "likes" and comments. As your page starts to generate some interest and you have fans like your posts, updates or pictures always remember to thank them and encourage more engagement. Use the personal "tag" when thanking them and ask a pertinent question or try to encourage or edify them in some way. Eventually your fans will comment on your posts, videos and pictures, don't leave them hanging, always engage, encourage and leave them feeling good that they "liked" or commented on your stuff. This is not a Facebook only technique my friends but applies to every social media, blog or website. Engage, encourage and build relationships with those that are spending their precious time on your web properties.
