Facebook Fan Page for Social Media Marketing

How to leverage the power of Facebook Friends and Fans

Social media marketing has definitely and officially hit its stride.  If you want to leverage viral word-of-mouth (WOM) marketing and take advantage of the multiplier effect of Facebook friends and the Facebook Fan page then this is what you need to do…

  1. Create a Facebook Fan page for your company, organization, website or project
  2. On the home page of your website, install a Facebook chicklet and direct people to your Fan Page … not your Wall
  3. Install a second Facebook chicklet but code it so that when people click on the chicklet, it encourages people to share a link to your Fan Page on their wall.  Key words … on their wall.  It’s one thing to have people check out your Facebook page, but it’s quite another to encourage people to share a link to your site on their page.
  4. Now, here is the magic exponential multiplier effect of the Facebook Fan Page when leveraged by Facebook Friends…Every time somebody becomes a Fan of your Facebook Page then all of their Friends are notified, when they visit their Facebook page or your wall, that you just became a Fan and they should become a Fan too.  Say that you have a Fan with 650 Facebook Friends, once they become a Fan of your Facebook Page … Boom!, 650 new people have been exposed to your Facebook Page.

Pretty powerful, huh?
