Yep, I’m back with part three of my series on How To Get More Fans on Facebook.
Method Three – Joint Venture With Other Page Owners
Joint Venture is really just a buzz phrase or marketing term meaning ‘working with other people in your market for mutual benefit’.
This method is simple and to-the-point, so this part of the article will be too:
- Find pages that have lots of fans (5,000+ at least but ideally over 25,000) that are related to your page or niche. For example, in the case of the page I created for Channel 4 show ‘Campus’, I realised that the person who’d produced and directed it was also the producer and director of several other hit comedies. So, I went to Facebook and found all the fan pages I could that were related to those previous shows.
- Once you have those pages, contact the admins of the pages and ask if they would post a link to your page on theirs. This gives them something new to post, plus it gives you exposure. You could also offer to give them a promo on your page once it reaches a certain number of fans. That way they get exposure too.
- Another way of doing it is to actually offer them some money to post your link. If they have hundreds of thousands or even millions of fans, they won’t be interested in doing a joint venture with someone who has 6 fans, so you need to give them another incentive. Pay them via PayPal so it’s all above board. Offer them a price for a mailout (it will vary depending on the amount of fans they have). As a rule, each fan is worth roughly $0.23 – $0.26 each on average (source: Mark Anastasi’s FB Cash Course) but can be worth more. If you feel there might be trust issues, then offer them half up-front and the other half once the post has been made.
With this method you can grow those first 25 subscribers quickly and then use your own fans as leverage for more joint ventures in the future.
