Default Facebook Fan Pages Question

Hi everyone,

I am trying to gather some info for an upcoming free teleseminar I am going to hold and wanted to get some feedback from the board.

If you are currently using a Facebook Fan Page and are unsure about how to better leverage it, what are your specific questions?

If you aware of Fan Pages and are not using one, is there a reason why not?

Thanks so much!

Hi Christine,

We have a Fan Page for our small retail business. We are adding fans with incentives in the form of giveaways (you have to be a fan on the day of the giveaway to win, and the winner is selected at random).

We want fans to provide us with this alternate channel to e-mail. We like e-mail just fine, but I'd like to test whether response rates to updates sent to fans is better, since the contact seems to be a bit "warmer". We will likely continue to use both

What I don't like about the page is that there's not a lot of customization one can do. On the other hand, it's hard to complain about what's free, and I'm guessing FB is not really interested in providing business web hosting or an e-commerce platform gratis. Might be an interesting revenue stream for them, though.

There used to be an application that permitted a data feed of inventory items onto a Facebook page, but the recent changes at both facebook and eBay seem to have broken it. Pity.

Good luck!
