    the name of the facebook page is Free-Ads-Wall-NYC My friend who made this thinks its a great idea to get users to post on the wall and share info of local businesses and services. I have doubts about its purpose and of course purpose ($?) Any sugestions would greatly benefit this future community Please try to be as judgmental as possible. Thank you BHW

    maybe post on business directories or send emails out to businesses promoting your ads wall for free and then once you have quite a few members on the page then start charging.

    Gene_nero,

    Sneaky has a good plan. If your goal is to charge people to be able to post their ads on the page, you must first build up a following and also let people use it for free until those who it targets (assuming local people) see the value in it and start using it a lot.

    You could also advertise the page to get more followers before promoting it to the local business market. Frankly though there are a ton of other ways to get exposure online as a local business such as Google or Bing PPC or even just paying someone to do SEO for the site. It would seem like piggybacking on Facebook in order to sell ad space is not the best strategy. Especially when businesses could just pay Facebook to advertise and they would get very targeted traffic and detailed reports on how their advertising investment is paying them back.

    Maybe your friend can find another idea to monetize a facebook page here,
