It use to be that the only way you could connect and interact with a loyal audience of online readers was through email lists.
Connecting and communicating with your readers is one of the most important actions you can take to grow your online audience, business, etc…
But with the rise of Facebook, and primarily Facebook Fan Pages, I see a new tool that can actually be more effective than email lists.
An active Facebook Fan Page allows you (the business, writer, blogger, actor, actress, etc…) to directly interact with a continual growing audience of “fans”. And of course we all define “fans” differently, but the end result is the same – connecting and letting your “fans” know you care about them and are excited to interact with them.
It’s the “connection” element that increases your credibility with your audience and puts a human element to your online presence.
If you don’t have a Facebook Fan Page yet – regardless of your profession – then I highly recommend you build one and implement it into your current online properties (i.e. blog, website, etc…).
So what about you, do you already have a Facebook Fan Page? And if so, are you using it to connect with your audience?

I’ve been studying facebook for the last couple of months and in particular fan pages as they are such an incredibly powerful way to advertise your business / services.
I managed to get to 1000 fans in 24 days and it’s climbing daily.
There are 10 key strategies I used to get fans these include;
1. Facebook friends
2. Posting on groups
3. Creating a group
4. Linking to blog
5. Linking to You Tube
8. Creating events
9. Free Gifts
There are also loads of other strategies, so I’m just scratching the surface at the moment.
As I built the page and went about promoting etc I decided to record all my learnings. I made some free videos explaining how to create a page, add a landing page, add video etc and then explode your fans. I’m still working on part 2 of exploding your fans.
You can see the videos here; please note you can watch all the videos without opting in by just clicking the boxes on the right of the page. You only need to optin if you want the templates (the videos explain).
Please feel free to have a look at the videos, they’re free because I wanted to build my reputation / comments and testimonials etc.
I hope they help.
Facebook fan pages are always good for traffic If you have set them up with legit methods and try to entertain people not just advertise products.
