Hi

I did Pay Per Click to increase the fans, once I had an amount I was happy with and knew that those members would help me grow the website without me paying I stopped the campaign and have never paid another cent, it now grows without me doing anything

Thank you for the feedback Simone I was on FB recently looking at their Create An Ad section and saw the "Pay Per 1,000 Impressions"

Good to know there has been success with the PPC Campaign

If you don't mind, you'll have to let me know how the LinkedIn Ads go. Are you targeting those to see if it drives you business or to build you fan base?

Default Facebook is great for giveaways

Another great way to generate leads from Facebook is to hold a promotion or giveaway. Asking people to enter their contact information to enter to win a giveaway or to receive promotional deals on products or services. Utilizing the contact information is the second most important aspect for using Facebook to generate leads. You can reach out via email or phone to follow up with potential leads about services your company might be able to provide for them.

That sounds like a good idea; how many 'Likes' or fans of your page would you recommend having before trying a promotion?

In my Google Analytics, it shows that most of my traffic came from Facebook, however I am not really sure if all the leads we got were from Facebook.. hmm is there any way how we can track it? Though I was really surprised that Facebook indeed works for us. And how does "Weekly Total Reach" being calculated? Pardon me from asking too much here.. I just want to understand Facebook marketing more..
