Are you looking for creative ways to spread the word about your Facebook page? Your fan page can be one of your organization’s richest sources of interaction, R&D and lead generation. The only problem is making people aware of it! Unless you have a built-in audience like big-boy brands Coke or Red Bull, you’ll need to educate your fan base on how to find you on Facebook.
Your Facebook Page makes it easy for people to find out more about what you offer and get in touch. People can communicate with your business on Facebook through Messenger, and it’s a flexible and convenient way to provide customer service. Stay active on your Page by replying to comments on your posts. When people know that you’re interacting with them, they are more likely to feel connected to your business.
Once you’ve set up your Facebook Page, you can build an audience of people who are interested in what you have to offer. People can like your Page and sign up to receive notifications when you publish updates, helping you reach customers and stay top of mind with them. A great way to start is by inviting customers you currently do business with or people in your life who may be genuinely interested in your business to like your Facebook Page. They can support you by interacting with your posts and sharing your content. This initial audience helps you establish credibility, build your reputation and spread the word about your business straight away.

Your advert will automatically be updated in the Preview Advert section
Choose your audience
You can specify the location, age, gender and interests of the people you’d like to reach
The Interests field will initially be filled with interests we think to make sense for your customers, but we encourage you to type any additional interests into the box or to remove any interests that don’t apply
If you’d like to apply more advanced targeting options, try using the adverts create tool to promote your website.
Choose your budget
The budget you enter will be a daily budget
You can choose to promote your website continuously or set an end date for your promotion
You’ll only be charged when your advert is displayed on Facebook, so your entire budget may not always be spent

Other methods include and not limited to;
Use the network you already have
If someone has already joined your email list, they most likely would love to connect with you on Facebook too. Send out an email to your contact list, announcing your new page and inviting people to Like your business on Facebook. You should also add social media buttons to your email footer, so your email subscribers are continually reminded of your active social channels.
Add a Follow Button on your website
Make it easy for your website visitors to Like your page by adding a Follow Button to your website or blog. A Facebook Follow Button is a widget you can add to your website that links people from your website to your Facebook Page. For an official Facebook Follow Button, go to Facebook’s Social Plugins resource page.
Create a Facebook Ad
Running a Facebook Ad is an easy way to get your page in front of a new relevant audience. Using Facebook’s targeting features you can create an ad that reaches people with certain characteristics like age and location. You can also use Facebook’s Custom Audiences feature to upload your email list and reach your existing contacts.
Share helpful content
There is a big difference between social media and social media marketing. Give people a reason to Like your page by sharing helpful posts and driving action. Facebook is a highly visual channel, so share images and videos when you can. You can even try a Facebook Live to engage your fans.
Promote your page offline too
Promote your Facebook Page on all of your print marketing materials including business cards, menus, flyers, signs, t-shirts — anywhere it can be visible. Mention your Facebook Page the next time you speak at a workshop, seminar or conference. You can even include an image and link to your page in your slide deck.
Don’t forget your existing social following
If you’re active on other social media channels, like Twitter, Pinterest, or LinkedIn, promote your page on those channels as well. Your superfans will be happy to connect with your business anywhere they can.
