    Im starting my fan page for my local bussiness ( Offline Bussiness ), But I'm in a conflict with myself, how to get a lot of like, what do you recommend me ?

    Im thinking about making a contest to promote my fanpage, Im thinking to offer to win a course of my business for free, but I have no idea how to set up this contest and over all respecting the rules from facebook, just for not been banned or closed the page.

    do you have any app that I can use to make or create a contest, any suggestions, recommendations, links or video tutorial, Or I need script or method to contest people invite friend to my fan page and they have refferal and I can see who has invite most friends for winning, etc, will be very appreciate.

    thanks for taking time to answer me this post.

    You have to be very careful about the way you have a contest on facebook. They changed some things and if you do it wrong, you can get banned. Also, they have rules about how you get people to like your page when you're having a contest. I used this for my facebook contest. http://promotion.binkd.com They go by all the facebook rules so you don't have to worry about having a contest that violates facebook's rules. When you set up your contest with them, make sure you check off the box that says to have people like your page. It is very easy to miss the box so make sure you go slowly and pay attention. I missed it the first time and had to go back and do it all over again. I used their free service for my contest and it went very well. It's a great service they are offering.

    I don't have any tutorials but if you go to the link I posted, you should be fine as long as you go slowly. binkd.com is very good about having Facebook contests that don't violate any rules. They will guide you through everything as you are setting up your contest and tell you what to do each step of the way.
