Facebook Marketing: How To Build Fanbase For Start-Ups

Posted on September 19, 2013. Filed under: facebook marketing | Tags: , , |

With over 1.5 billion active users worldwide, 699 million people who daily log into their accounts, five new profiles created every second not to mention 510 comments posted, 293,000 statuses updated and 136,000 photos uploaded each single minute, Facebook is inarguably the number one social network today. With such impressive statistics and loyal following, it is no wonder that it has become a must to every business owner to include this platform in their social media strategies.

Regardless if you’re a digital agency in the Philippines, India or anywhere else, for as long as you are just starting up your biz, below are some basic tips to initially build your fanbase. Learn how you could quickly tap into Facebook and gain potential customers to succeed in the digital marketing industry.

  1. Sales promotion. Holding a contest on your page is perhaps one of the quickest ways to increase fans. Every person in this world would want to win a prize at some point in his/her life. If you leverage on that, it would give you an edge as an entrepreneur as people would be very interested to know if they are eligible to join. You could require them to fill up a registration form to input their details, then afterwards, like your fanpage and share it to their friends. The more friends they recommend, the higher the points they’ll get. The participant with the highest accumulated points gets the top prize. You could use either an app or basically utilize your own timeline since FB lifted its strict policy on administering promotion this month.

  1. Freebies. Giving freebies is another great method to get FB users interested in your business. From e-books to exclusive content, you could maximize the feature “Like-gating” wherein upon liking your fanpage, the user would get instant access to your downloadable giveaways. No need for them to sign up. All it takes on their end is just one simple click and they could immediately download your freebie. The trick here is to keep your offers varied and ultimately interesting so they would personally recommend it to their loved ones.

  1. Cross-promote. Embed the LIKE box plugin to your site so your current website visitors could easily become a fan of your business page. You could opt to install other plugins too such as Share, Comments, and Recommendations Bar to further improve your visibility on the said platform. Integrate and/or promote your other social media profiles in Twitter, Youtube and Pinterest to grow your followers.

[…]  Building fanbase is not enough though. To a digital agency, one must ensure that each fan converts to a lead and that lead translates to a sale. Enter engagement in the picture. Suppose your brand sells local soap, you currently have 1,000 fans but no one likes, comments or shares your post. Do you think your country-wide or digital marketing campaign, for that matter, proves effective at all? […]
