More Facebook Page Fans – The Easy Way

A Facebook Page is a really powerful marketing tool. It’s completely free and it’s fairly easy to use.

A different kind of logo

What matters is to get lots of raving fans, and the easiest way you can do this is by creating a different kind of logo.

Traffic to your Facebook Page

A lot of people have been asking me what they should be doing to get more fans (members of their Facebook Page). There are many things they should do, for instance they should:

This is the easiest way

As I said, it’s one way that’s easier than all others, and it’s to turn your logo into an arrow.

Look at this:

Forby pels facebook logo

Do you see the arrow?

Do you see what it’s pointing at?

Look at the image above once more. The words are in Norwegian. It says, make fur illegal, and it’s what really matters.

    Nice Tip!
    I’m going to do it on my Facebook fan page!
    Thanks for the share, I think it will take the visitors attention, by the way, I tried to RT but the button didn’t work 🙁

    Thanks for the tips, i will certainly “give the arrow a shot”. 😉

    I’ve had a couple Facebook fan pages for my blogs in the past, but haven’t really used them very well. I never spent much time on them and therefore never got many results from them. When I do create one for Blogging Bookshelf, I’ll definitely use the arrow and the big logo. Great ideas, Jens, and thanks!

    • I don’t use Facebook Pages much for my blog either, but I’ve discovered the real potential from using them. I’m currently running a FB Page for the college where I work, and we get a lot of traffic from it.

      Thanks again for your comment Tristan.

    Hi Jens, I agree that Facebook fan page could be really useful, however I have never been very much into Facebook I am more Tweeter person and spending my time there.

    • Me too. I have been using Facebook for my work (at the college), but I’m more into Twitter for what I do online as part of my own online marketing strategy.

      Thanks a lot for commenting Adam.

    Hi Jens, I really enjoyed the advice you have here. So far, I’m loving having a Facebook fan page since I see that a lot of people visit my links right away when I post them to my page. I only have about 20 fans, but already I’m seeing the potential here for traffic. I like your idea about the logo thing with the arrow. Might have to try that! Thanks. 🙂

    • A Facebook Page is excellent for marketing a blog. When you publish a new blog post they’ll all get it on their wall (in their newsfeed). It’s actually a lot like an RSS reader (just a little more advanced).

      You don’t need many fans, as long as you have dedicated fans, people who visit your posts and maybe even share them with other Facebook users. I’ll have to visit your Page, what’s the URL?

      Thanks a lot for your comment Elise.

    Facebook is a good traffic source and I created a page some time back. However, to be honest, I almost overlooked the logo. Your advice is great and I think I will be using something like this soon.
    Retweeted.

    • The logo is not that visible, I can understand why you almost overlooked it. The important thing is that we all need a logo on our Facebook Page, and adding an arrow is no big deal. It doesn’t change our logo much, and it’s fairly easy to do… and it can have a major effect.

      Thanks a lot for your comment Ishan.

    ‘Way cool. Love the image you uncovered. You can also set the background to be the same as the default FB background so you’re not limited to conventional shapes as well.

  8. elie palima says:

    the arrow’s definitely a good idea. also, (although I can’t understand the bulleted points on the image) I think the step by step instructions on the page’s landing page really helps alot too.

    • I definitely agree with you Elie. We should create a landing page for our Facebook Page, where we tell people why they should “like” it. The logo by itself is a good idea, but adding a landing page is an even better idea.

      Thanks a lot for your comment.

  9. In my personal opinion I prefer using Facebook then Twitter. In the future more people will come to know about Facebook.

  10. Facebook is great way to promote your stuff, but I think it’s best to combine the two. Usually, I’m more of a Twitter-guy, but that’s just me 🙂

    Given your business, I am really puzzled why you do not use a favicon on your web site pages so that I can distinguish them from other sites when multi-tab browsing.

  14. Art of RetroCollage says:

    Is FB set up so that there is one landing page for those who haven’t already “liked” the page, and a different one (say, the wall) for those who already do “like” the page?

    • jens says:

      No, you can only chose one landing page on FB. And it’s the same for people who like the page and people who don’t. But using various scripts, you can differentiate the landing page.

      There are many scripts that will help you do this, you’ll get one for free in my next newsletter. Sign up using the box in the sidebar 🙂
