Facebook Fan Page

Bookmark and Share

Fan pages are used by a variety of businesses to establish a presence on Facebook and build a community around their brand. They’re a particularly good option for small to medium sized enterprises looking to gain visibility in the realm of social media as they are completely free and easy to set up. Once up and running they serve as a central place for brand discussion and sharing of user generated content.

Like group pages they include discussion boards, photos and videos. Users can also quickly and easily send messages to fans of their page and unlike groups there is no limit to the number of people you can contact with a single message. This makes fan pages the best way to carry out viral marketing via Facebook.

Facebook users who are fans of particular brands / products / organisations etc can suggest pages to their friends who must then opt in if they too wish to become a fan. This serves as somewhat of a pre-qualifying tool and ensures that people following a brand have at least some interest in it.

Examples of brands/businesses that have good Facebook Fan Pages are:

  • Skittles: 4,296,474 fans
  • Coca Cola: 5,393,713 fans
  • ASOS: 232,698 fans

    It is very important for you to understand, there is no get rich quick in affiliate marketing. It takes time and patience, to build traffic, credibility and above all trust. Don’t throw in the towel too soon. While it is important not to stick with a program that you decide you do not enjoy, it is very important that you have some patience and give a program time to work. You know, or should know, that your bank account wont immediately be overflowing. Give each program at least a few months to start making money for you before even considering a move to something else. My general rule of thumb is if it is not making me money in 6 moths it is a bust. Again, you won’t make fast money, usually, so stay with it because it’s normal for things to be slow to take off. There are many ways to maintain your sales at a respectable level.
