Turning Facebook Fans into Paying Customers should be the aim of every business that utilizes Facebook, after all businesses are here to make money. So How do you convert fans into customers so that you can capitalize on your social media marketing? To most businesses this means a constant stream of sales messages which in my experience seldom convert fans into customers, however it isn’t as difficult as many would think, here are a few different ways to maximize the potential of your social media following.

Turning Facebook Fans into Paying CustomersOffer a Free Product If They Like Your Page

Everyone likes free stuff and this is a common practice when it comes to Facebook. Offer your customers something free if they like your page, such as promotional material like a sticker or anything that relates to your business. This builds trust and trust builds sales.

Give a Discount to your Fans

You want to reward your fans for keeping in touch with your page, so give them something special. Discounts that are exclusive to the people who like your page make your fans feel that they’re getting something that isn’t available to everyone, which motivates them to buy.

Give Them an Inside Look

No one wants to think of a business as a faceless entity. Give people an inside look into your operation and the people behind it. Showcasing the fact that your business and its employees are human will help people feel more connected to you.

Get Testimonials from Customers

When it comes to promoting a business, there’s no stronger way to do it than by word of mouth. Facebook pages have an option which allows your customers to leave reviews on your page. Make sure to implement this because a few positive reviews could help you see a big increase in your customer base.

Hold a Contest

Contests are always a good way to get people involved. Get creative with it. You need referrals, so ask people to refer their friends to your page and give the person who refers the most people some sort of reward.

Get People to Interact

A Facebook page that is just constantly talking about the business side of things can get monotonous. Don’t be afraid to go off topic from time to time and get personal with people. Start conversations and get people talking. The more they interact with you, the more they will trust your brand.

Build an Email List

Social media marketing is a great way to promote your business but it can also be used as a way to incorporate other forms of marketing such as an email list. Encourage people to sign up for your email list by promising them deals which will be exclusive to members of the list.

Create Content They Can Share

Your Facebook fans can be your secret weapon when it comes to promoting your business. Using them to promote your business for you is a great way to get new customers. Be sure to create content that your fans can share in order to attract new ones.

Promote Events

Don’t be afraid to get face to face with people. Organizing an event for your business or becoming a part of an event which is already taking place is a great way to get to know people. Use your Facebook as a way to meet people in real life by encouraging them to attend an event which you might also be attending.

When it comes to promoting yourself on Facebook, there are plenty of ways to do it. All of the methods above are great ways to create loyalty between your fans and your business. There’s guaranteed to be something in this list that gets you results, so try these few ideas out and see the results for yourself.

About Me

I've been designing and marketing websites and businesses for over 24 years and prior to this I worked in sales, marketing and big business for almost 18 years... which makes me not only old, but also highly experienced at this marketing and Internet stuff.  I've won lots of awards and helped thousands of people, and this website is a testament to the information I share freely to help others succeed online.

When I'm not designing websites, doing this online marketing stuff or writing. I love nothing more than getting out on a weekend and scuba diving. I'm a qualified rescue diver and love getting wet in the waters around Perth and Rottenest Island. I also cycle, which must be a sight as I'm not the thinnest of people (lol)... and a paddle on a kayak or a swim helps makes most weeks, perfect. At home I have a marine reef tank, which I just love and on top of that I've an awesome dog, called Ziggy.

What Can I Do For You?

I can work with you to design a website and marketing strategy that actually works. You'll get a website that looks fantastic but also attracts and engages your potential customers, helping generate leads, sales and profits.

What Will It Cost ?

A discussion about your requirements is completely free of charge.

Solutions are tailored to meet your budget and success goals as much as possible, and websites have been delivered costing just a few hundreds dollars a month or for one of payments of a few thousand... it all comes down to our discussions, if you want a website that generates millions of dollars in sales your budget will obviously be bigger, if you're a small business then your goals and costs will be more realistic, at least to start with.
