Default Did this work?

How many sign ups did you get by posting "lets add each other on FB"? First lesson on Facebook, you have to give a reason for people to "like" you. I am not saying you have to give a tangible item, you can, but I am not saying that. As in any personal relationship what are you bringing to the tabel, WHY should I like you, I have millions of other choices, why am I choosing you?

Answer that question and I (& many others) will "like" your page.

Default Vic - hold on..

I just checked your facebook link. You cannot run a business page in a personal page. You have to create a separate page for the business. Its simple to create the page. Good thing you haven't gone all out yet, many people make this mistake.

Read up on Facebook Pages and how to create one. There is a ton of free information out there on how to do it.

i created one already about a few weeks ago, but i think i need to change my link here on the forum to go straight to my fan page instead of my personal page. Does that sound more like i am going on the right track?

Default Now your getting there...

Ok...that's a start and I see you have your first "like"...but you have some work to do! Completley fill out your info tab, and how are you advertising your page? Are you putting your facebook info on your site or printed material? Invite your friends and families... You have to start somewhere.

See my Fan Page: http://www.facebook.com/johnnylewssports and feel free to see what you think I am doing right and employ it into your page!
