Facebook fan pages are fast becoming known as the ultimate goldmine for viral online traffic. With Facebook growing faster than ever (even passing Google in popularity), it looks certain to take over the internet world marketers are switching their focus to using Facebook to grow their businesses virally. There are some reports of underground marketers making thousands each day through viral Facebook fan pages, and people are beginning to take notice.
I first witnessed the viral power of Facebook when I was having a lazy day and got caught searching through my news feed. I saw one of my friends had joined a funny Facebook fan page and my curiosity got the better of me. I checked the page and found to my surprise that there were over 100,000 members, all joined within 24 hours of the group’s creation. I was astonished and refreshed the page again to find at least 100 new members would join each time. This instance convinced me of the power of Facebook fan pages as I witnessed the Facebook fan page reach one and a half million in just seven days.
Facebook fan pages are an effective marketing tool if you can get them to the stage where they are growing virally. The best way to go about this is to get up to twenty thousand fans in your first week. This switches the page into viral mode and the growth becomes unstoppable. The key to using this Facebook marketing strategy is being able to get your fan page from nothing to 20,000 in just one week.
One of the more effective strategies for doing this is what I like to call the “Rapid Movement Method”. This method allows you to grow your Facebook fan page very quickly by tapping into other fans on similar viral pages. To make this method work, you need to contact other fan page administrators (make sure they have at least 100,000 fans) and request that they invite their fans to join your page by posting your link on their wall. If the administrator’s contact details are not available on the page to contact them, in most cases you can find a “Discussions” tab and place a comment asking the owner to contact you about the possibility to promote your fan page. Often you’ll find that the admin will get in contact with you and you’ll be able to negotiate a wall message to encourage their members to join your page too. If done correctly, this massive boost should deliver you enough fans in a short period of time to take your page into viral mode.
Once your fan page has gone viral, you’ll have the ability to encourage your members to visit your website or sign up for your mailing list and grow your website’s members quicker than anything else online possibly could.
