    The first thing to do would be to share the fan page with all your FaceBook friends. Then link to it as much as possible and use every opportunity to tell people about it.

    Do you have your own website?

    It's very difficult to comment without knowing what your facebook business page is about and who it is aimed at. A few 'general' options to consider:

    - Competition / Free give away (linked to 'like'ing the page)
    - Special offers (voucher codes, 10% off, etc.) for users who 'like' the page
    - Provide valuable and relevant advice on the page, give users a reason to follow it
    - Keep it active and updated while encouraging your fans to participate
    (not only makes it more beneficial for the users, but also means that the updates/posts appear in front of a larger audience in the existing followers news feeds)
    - Provide a link to your page on your website, emails, forum signatures, etc.
    (pull marketing, where the users come to you, is more effective than push marketing)
    - Optimise the page for conversions
    (use an application like static FBML to produce a welcome page which clearly outlines what you do, how it helps the user and provides a clear call to action)

    When you've exhausted every other avenue...
    - Advertise the page
    (I work in this area, so a vested interest, but I always go to pains to ensure that clients exhaust every other avenue before going down the route of 'paying' for fans. Facebook advertising provides extremely detailed demographic targeting to ensure you hit your target market, but paying for something you can get for free is just bad business)

    Let us know a link to your Fanpage so we can check on it and what are the steps to be needed to improve the number of your fans.

    I, too, own a Facebook fan page for my blog and for the first months my page is online, I have been struggling on getting new fans each day. If I'm not mistaken, I have been stocked before at 300+ fans. But now, I'm near to the 1k mark.

    What I did is this:
    1. Create a fan page picture that best represents your fan page. Here are a few example: http://www.1stwebdesigner.com/inspiration/facebook-fan-page-profile-images/
    2. Create a custom username for your page. Here's how: http://www.businessadviceforum.com/showthread.php?t=11913
    3. Promote it on related fan pages. And post a link to it on your site, if you have one.
    4. Invite your friends.
    5. Update the page regularly and interact with the posts made by your fans.

    Hope those helped you.

    Hi guys thanks for putting good suggestion ......
    Having fans is a great spot to interact easily with fans or users supplying entertainment and quality content and just having fun.if you are using another site just like just like Twitter its need to work on creating lists to easily invite those in my network. Another possible way to drive fans is by holding a contest directed back towards the page, although with the new Fb TOS that may be more difficult.,,,,

    Hi Sconinc,

    I've been studying facebook for the last couple of months and in particular fan pages as they are such an incredibly powerful way to advertise your business / services.

    I managed to get to 1000 fans in 24 days and it's climbing daily.

    There are 10 key strategies I used to get fans these include;

    1. Facebook friends
    2. Posting on groups
    3. Creating a group
    4. Linking to blog
    5. Linking to You Tube
    6. Twitter
    7. Fiverr
    8. Creating events
    9. Free Gifts
    10. Marketplace

    There are also loads of other strategies, so I'm just scratching the surface at the moment.

    As I built the page and went about promoting etc I decided to record all my learnings. I made some free videos explaining how to create a page, add a landing page, add video etc and then explode your fans. I'm still working on part 2 of exploding your fans.

    You can see the videos here; http://www.freefanpagetemplates.com please note you can watch all the videos without opting in by just clicking the boxes on the right of the page. You only need to optin if you want the templates (the videos explain).

    Please feel free to have a look at the videos, they're free because I wanted to build my reputation / comments and testimonials etc.

    I hope they help.

    Jo :)

    Send invitation to your subscribers through emails and encourage them to join. Instead of promoting personal profile include a link to the fan page. Load the photos to the fan page and encourage the fans to tag themselves. Place face book ads. when you advertise your fan page, face book users can become fans right from the ad. Then monitor the response to this techniques.
