Most people will have trouble getting their fan page pass the 1000 fans mark. Here are several ways to get your first 1000 Facebook Fans.

Get your friends on board

The first thing you can do is go into your own Facebook’s profile and invite friends to your page. This method is free and is a great way to get things started. Some savvy Facebook marketers will even make new Facebook Profile Accounts just to get more friends to their list. These friends will then be invited into their fan page.

This way, you can still target the people that you want to be on your Facebook fan page you can also target based on demographics. Firstly, you might need to join other similar Facebook pages and become a fan. From there you can add the people there as friends whom you will later try to convert them into fans. Just make sure that before you start inviting people to become your friends or fans that you have all the necessary information loading into your Fanpage and profile accounts. This is to entice people to join and make friends with you. Nobody will join your page if it is empty and if it boring.

Tell everyone

The next thing you can do is to let your existing subscribers, clients or whoever you could know about your page. Spread the news via your websites or blogs. You can even post in forums. The most important thing here is just to get people to start coming into your fan page and let the numbers go up.

Try not to be shy about it. You do not have to wait until your Fanpage have a thousand people first before inviting because it won’t happen unless you do something about it. Tweet about it and place banners on relevant sites. Buy ads places where you see fit.

Only when the world knows about it will you stand a chance for your fan page to grow. Lead them to your fan page and guide them there with care. Nobody will know your Fanpage exists unless you tell them.

Content

Your content is very important. It is the reason why people will want to join you in the first place. Therefore, try to post as often as possible (at least once a day) and get people to interact with your post. Use attractive images as they get a lot of responses from the masses. Create polls or ask interesting questions so that people will place their opinions on the comment section.

The more frequent you post, and the more response it gets, the faster your Facebook Fan page will grow. At first, you might not want to post any links so that people will stay on your page and view all the other posts that you might have. Only post links when you are more established. There is no point to post links when your only have less than a hundred fans anyway.

Facebook Ads

Perhaps the fastest way to build your first 1000 fans is to use Facebook paid ads. Most people will frown just from the word ‘Paid’ and shy away from it immediately. Sure there have been lot of nightmare stories on how expensive Facebook Ads can be… but that’ just coming from people who are doing it wrong. There are ways to get fans at a low cost of 0.01 cents per fan. Think about it. For 100 fans that’s only $10. Where else can you get that much traffic for 10 bucks?

Google up how to get cheap Facebook clicks if you must know the full details on how to get cheaper fans to your Facebook page but the fundamental part here is that your ads must be able to get a good click through rate. The higher your click through rate the lower your ad cost is going to be. Facebook Ads can go as cheap as $0.001 cent. That’s right! That’s not a typo or a mistype. It is a fact. That means if you are able to get such a low cost per click or cost per fan, the first 1000 fan is going to be only $1.

It certainly is the fastest and cheapest way to get fans if you are not comparing with the free methods. All you need is a good picture that attracts clicks and asks them if they like the picture or not. When they click the ‘like’ button on your ad, they will be automatically added you your fan page and viola… things will roll on from there. When you get to your first 1000 clicks (very fast and easy using Facebook Ads) you might consider going up to 5000 fans first before stopping your ad. When you have that many fans, you will only need constant interesting post and your fans will increase automatically because Facebook will work it’s magic and show your post to people who are interested in your posts.
