    Hello experts,

    I'd like to get some advise from you, since I am an SEO individual.. facebook is a new here.

    We are working on a very complex (yet easy to use) App for facebook, that will give a solution for some need that is not there on facebook yet.
    We will need to start the marketing soon. We budget $6,000 for marketing, monthly, for 6 months. That's over $35,000 USD for marketing.

    Now, those of you who can give some advice, please direct me to all angles of FB marketing.

    From blackhat ninja tactics (Adding friends, etc.), to Facebook ads, to PPC, through SEO, PR, Articles, etc.


    I will appreciate any advice.


    Thanks.

    Hey buddy.

    It depends what your apps about. I would pay someone to make accounts on proxies and target your users. Get users from similar app/groups/pages.

    Once you've got about 1000 friends on the account, export the contacts emails to hotmail. Make sure you make a csv copy aswell just incase the hm account gets banned (never happened to me, but be safe).

    Once this is done, stop adding friends on the accounts and instead share feeds on the accounts' wall daily which will attract users to the app. Check when more people are in chat at different times and post your feeds then for maximum exposure. Use the emails to target the future app users.

    You could say this is a noob method, but idc. It's cheap and it's pretty effective if you follow the steps to make it v effective. I normally outsource the work to people in india using freelancer. The reason why I say this is because they work for pretty cheap and most of them know what their doing. You can normally get them for about $20-$30 a day and provide them with proxies and stuff.

    If your app targets a big niche/general users you could also get status updates from people with big pages. I haven't done this before, but I know it's effective.

    I hope this helped. Good luck and I hope all goes well.

    You can also pay a professional Xrumer pro to blast relevant forums for you.

    What is a professional Xrumer?

    A true question, not trying to be smart. Please do not "attack me".

    :confused:
