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 1700 fans in 30 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; http://www.freefanpagetemplates.com
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.
