Think about creating your own group rather than just a page. A Facebook group will help encourage your followers to develop and participate in an online community where they can interact together. Always try to have a group and a regular page so that you can give your subscribers updates and allow them to mingle with each other, as well.
Make sure that you stay active answering the questions on your Facebook page. Thank the person for taking the time to contact you, and do your best to provide a helpful answer to their question. When you already have an answer available on your website, link to it.

Ensure you only attract the good kind of attention you want. If you feel like you have worthwhile things to say, you should post on other pages. Do not ever do spam posts.
