Use your company brand if you have one so your product becomes familiar. If you’re an affiliate or niche marketing specialist, feature a good professional image of yourself so you leave a good impression. If you sell organic produce you don’t have to wear a suit but maybe some clean overalls, fit the part. First impressions are critical – try to imagine yourself at a cocktail party filled with prominent people. Prove to people you know what you’re talking about and communicate that to the best of your ability to win new friends,and in this case facebook fans.Share information with them by publishing pictures, educational videos, status updates, holding consultations or running contests. Pages can be seen by anybody on the internet and are normally better for long-term relationships with your fans, readers or buyers.

Just like a website, your facebook page should be filled with interesting content that will keep your fans engaged and it should be updated on a regular basis. It’s a good place for people to ask important questions about your products and share customer feedback. You may find that when your facebook page starts to get a lot of visitors that it becomes harder to manage.
