Offering contests is an effective way to increase your fan base. Encourage people to “like” your Facebook page, and offer discounts or prizes in exchange. If you do offer a cash or gift prize, though, make sure it is actually awarded. Be honest in business, of course.
Increase customer engagement by commenting on the things they post on your Facebook wall. You should monitor your wall regularly and also any related @ messages. It is especially important to reply if the comment needs customer service support or a complaint is brought to light.
Giveaways are a great method of drawing attention to your page. You should try to get people excited about it by telling them you’ll give a prize to a few of them for participating. Announce winners on your page and repeat as necessary.
Be sure there is not too much spam on your Facebook page. There are built-in filters that can help you monitor your page. If you have different page administrators, they can help you with this.
Facebook is a great way to share your content. Facebook does not only relate to everyday chit chat, but it is also an important content format. Treat Facebook in that way. Write blog posts and then promote them using your Facebook page. It brings plenty of traffic for your business.
Consider buying some Facebook ads. You are able to customize your ad so that it reaches your target audience. You will also be able to set up a budget so you can advertise only as much as you’d like to. Finally, you don’t have to commit long-term. Your ad can be taken down at any time.

It’s not hard to market through Facebook, obviously. Just remember that success will not happen overnight. These techniques will improve your success as a business.
