    How much would you charge for creating a facebook fanpage for clients / business clients?

    Incl fans/likes (1k minimum) layout, a few content, and so on.

    And if the client ask you to manage it, how much would you charge?

    What do you think of this money making idea? Do you think its feasible?

    yeah, you aren't going to get rich doing it....we don't spend more than an hour on making the fb page. I stopped promoting it heavily...but the conversion ratio was normal, 1-3% buying so it depends on how much traffic you can pull into it

    But how much clients do you get per day?

    It sounds too much work for $75 a pop. Might be better to just make these fanpages for yourself and earn that money plus more. That way its residual from one time work. Whereas when you sold a FBF, its gone.

    if you target local businesses and actually show them flash sites (creativeden) and customize them i think you could get 300-500 a page. if you just redo some of their site code and make it for the fb page then might have trouble charging them more. i wouldn't charge under 150 (this is all just talking about the page design) maintenance a minimum of 100. i know of companies that charge 150-300 for fb/twitter monthly service

    A flash fanpage you mean?

    I'm also thinking that since you got them on facebook, might as well upsell them on mobile landing page.

    $ 250-300 for flash page. Dont use fivrr for fans for local clients business you need to do a media buy and target ads to your clients competition. And run contest promos for fans too. I run a monthly package for page contest ad buy and social monitoring better charging monthly than a one time payment. If they advertise in the local paper or radio they wont question writing you a check every month after you show them the pros and cons of moving their marketing campaign from print to social media

    Yes, it is feasible. If a client would ask you to manage a Facebook fan page, you can spend 1-2 hours of your time each day to update post, paste links, add pics, etc. Eg., you can update it 5 times a day (make your own sched). If that client has a Twitter page, then you can also offer your service. It's like offering your service in a bundle. Maintaining these social networking sites won't take so much of your time.. so you can still do regular activities, at least if you are a freelancer :)

    How much? Well, it really depends upon you. You can figure out how to quote by finding, searching, or getting information from those people who have been doing this business for quite some time. This doesn't exactly mean that you have to follow their rates, but at least you get the idea of what the most effective quote is. There are so many things to consider though when you propose a budget to your client. These includes: time you'll spend for doing the project, your effort, delivery of the output, and don't forget the cost for doing the project itself (eg., bills for electricity, computer usage, miscellaneous expenditures, etc).

    When you propse a budget, be sure to always offer an estimate (eg., say your service is $150-200 per month). This technique is more effective than quoting a single price or amount because there will always be room for discussion. If your client's budget doesn't fit your estimate, don't let the client turn around if he/she thinks your service is too expensive. Instead, offer to work out on his/her budget and quote your best price, while not minimizing your profit in general. However, if the client bargains you too much and doesn't consider how much you are worth, then you may decline -- you can always find clients who understand and give value to your quality work and services.

    This may be a noobish question but I was curious how those who are managing customers twitter and fan pages; are they providing the content for you to post? Or are you just handling that on your own?

    Those who manage social networking sites for clients (eg, posting updates) are most of the time given a free-hand by the client's, website owners, etc. That means everything that they post or update are their own thoughts/ideas, but of course it should always fit the structure of the fan page or the theme of the business. It is important therefore that the person who will manage the site already have a good grasp of the company's business. If not direction should always come handy.
