Increase Facebook Fans

You can engage with your fans by responding to their comments, posting about things they like, posting about causes you are involved with, posting contest information or having your own contest, and even offering special discounts or offers only for your Facebook fans. Every time your fans comment or like what you have posted, their networks become aware of you. This can lead to an increase in your fan base.

2. Be consistent

Being consistent is probably the best way to get more exposure and build your brand. Be consistent in posting, responding to posts, asking for help and sharing relevant content.

3. Add to your e-mail signature

      What I found is that people generally don’t want to be “the first” on to like, because they know that it’s going to be empty and not much going on – if you buffer the numbers with a bit of advertising socialnetexposure it’ll create a ‘rolling stone’ effect where fans really start to get into it :)

    • Peter Maxwell

      Apart from all mentioned my recommendation would be to quick start fanpage buying fans.

      When page have certain amount of fans more new fans just keep coming. People tends to like what their friends like. Nobody wants to be the first or among first and you are right.

      I started several fanpages and get fans to start from socialnetexposure.com . There may be cheaper sources around but i found this guys reliable and they provide real people not fake profiles.

    Hey there Chetan, Great post.
    I think the most important point that one should follow to increase fans is to write great content and then engage with your readers and fans. Also one may also want to utilize the “Word of Mouth” method and tell other friends to recommend your page to their friends and so on.

    Regards,
    Shiva
