Do you have a Facebook fan page? Then you might be looking for tips to get more fans and keep them. Here are three more ways to get people to like your page and stay fans for a long, long time.
Incentives can help you get more Facebook fans. So try offering free tickets to the first five Facebook fans who show up at your workshop, or the fan who gets the most successful referrals each month, or the person whose name you randomly draw from your fan’s list. Ask your fans to advertise this incentive, too.
Other possible incentives include a free consultation with you, free stuff from you, or a member feature on your home page.
You can also build a “rewards program” and “points systems” that your fans can win. Every time they refer a new member, post a useful link on your wall, comment (sensibly!) on your posts, or promote/share your events, they can earn a specific number of points.
When they reach a specific level, then you can start offering rewards, such as free workshops (if you’re an artist), free consultations (especially if you’re in the business field), or even free stock photos (if you’re a photographer).
Who inspired and continues to inspire you? Introduce your fans to them by providing links to the people who helped you get to where you are. By giving fans an insight into your idols, you help them share the warmth of your experiences.
In general, you want your fans to listen to you, but you want to listen to their views, too. Try to find middle ground that will be rewarding and fun for you and your fans, and you’ll find your fan base growing… and growing … and growing …
