In fact, it’s gotten so bad that we actually almost crave a business that we can trust and will gladly pull our wallets out once we find it. Capture this market!
  2. Connect with your fans and followers at their level. What’s a good, easy way to do this? Try segmenting your audience into “ideal client” categories. Purpose your content to target at least one of these categories.

Try offering a free t-shirt to 5 people who text the words “Like [Your Band Name Here]” to 32665 (FBOOK). Everyone who does this will automatically like your fan page!

Easily place an online store into your fan page, or even drop your existing website into its own app on Facebook!
