    When I first started to make fan pages I thought that you can just buy some fans or get some fans from "Youlikehits" or "addmefast", post some pics and then your page would go viral. Unfortunately it's not that easy, but it's also not that hard.

    This is basically for noobs - but it would have also saved me time If I knew this up front. This is nothing revolutionary but I thought it was worth posting.

    You can dial this in to be niche specific as well. Let's take Tattoos, but this could be any sport, hobby, or anything.


    Step 1: Set Your Fan Page.
    This is obvious, but the name should be cool. Something that if someone saw that you Liked it, you wouldn't be embarrassed. I'm not that creative so I typically just google bumper stickers and the niche. So I google "Tattoo bumper stickers". I get a few good ones -"I dig Chicks with Tats", "RCT - Rude Crude & Tattooed", "Ink Addicts". I would choose "Ink Addicts".


    Step 2: Get some fans
    It doesn't matter where. Fiverr, youlikehits, or addmefast are my top choices. Get over 100, but I suggest over 1000. When people see that fourth figure it looks good.


    Step 3: Post Pictures
    Find some super cool tattoo pictures. Or if your site is Baseball, or motorcycles - whatever it is. Mix them in with some general viral Memes with a ratio of like 2 to 1. So 2 tattoo related pics, one funny or crazy pic non related, then 2 tattoo related pics. Also be aware at of the time of day you are posting. Week days between 10:00 AM and 1:00 PM. Between 3:00 PM and 8:00 PM. Weekends Sunday mornings work well. I personally avoid Saturdays.


    Step 4: Going Viral
    The key I found out to going Viral is leveraging your own personal fan page. Before you freak out, it's safe. Don't worry. After you post your pic on the fan page, go back to your own profile and share the pic on your own page. If you are an average facebook users, you will have some where between 350 - 500 real life friends. Someone will like it, or share the photo. That is where the magic happens.

    Typically I share a funny or weird photo - maybe only 1 per day on my personal site and it gets 10 likes and maybe 4 or 5 comments. Now that spreads it to my friends friends wall. If you share the photo, then when the person clicks the photo, they are now in your fan page. When they hit the arrow key, they are now scrolling through all the viral pics that you posted on that fan page. If they are into Tattoos they will share or like at least a few of those pics. Your personal page is completely removed at this point and they are sharing content directly from your fan page.

    Now when you post something on the fan page you have a few real fans that will actually directly share and like stuff for you and even comment. So you just multiplied yourself.

    If you have a girlfriend/ boyfriend make sure you get them to like and share as well. So you are now doubling your efforts with 1 click.

    Step 5 - Keep it up!!
    It will start off slow but you will see it gain momentum. Once you hit tens of thousands, then start sharing some good content and throwing in some clickbank related product reviews. Clickbank has a few tattoo products, some homemade Tattoo removal recipes and an occasional Amazon link.


    Step 6 - Start Banking
    Typically if the fan page does well, then I set up a website. If you have 50,000 fans that are engaged then you don't need Google to rank, f**k Big G. You will get at least 100 hits (that is only .2%) on each post, but make sure the content is good. Reviews are well written and the products are related. Anything that you can review like a diary of use works well because it allows multiple posts on the same product. Going back to the tattoo removal - if you had a 8 posts that showed the progress of a tattoo being removed hat would be great. 100 targetted visitors should get you at least 1 sale and a few adsense clicks.

    Don't forget to have an Opt-in and give away something free on your website. If you can get them as a fan great, but if you can get their emails even better. I also run contests that have to be entered via email, and redirect each entry to a CPA offer.


    Step 7 - Re-investing
    Once you make your first sale. let's say you sell one click bank product and you make $17. Take that $17 and spend it ALL on facebook ads to your fanpage. I've spent $.35 per click because the fans I was getting were then laser targeted. Usually when I'm doing facebook ads, I am trying to get .05 clicks to make a profit from a sale. This is the other way around. You are now outbidding all the others who are trying to get cheap clicks for a quick sell. You have a long term plan for each of these fans. They will not just be buying something, they are now working for you by harvesting more fans. If each fan that you pay $.35 for gets you 10 more fans your cost is now actually $.03 per fan.


    Hopefully this helps - Always think bigger picture. Done correctly IM can be more then just Beer money!

    How can I make a Picture Viral.. Please clear me.. "When they hit the arrow key, they are now scrolling through all the viral pics that you posted on that fan page. If they are into Tattoos they will share or like at least a few of those pics."

    The Picture will go viral because when one person likes a picture on FB, all their friends can see what they liked. So if someone had 200 friends on facebook, you liked a pic, that pic can spread to 200 friends.

    Exactly! Dokseus is right.
    Once you get that person who likes tattoos (or whatever your niche is) to start scrolling through the pictures on your fan page, there is a high chance that he will like or share another pic because they are all related. That will then show up to his page and all his friends.

    It will start slowly with 1 or 2 likes per day. Then 5 or 6, then after 3 weeks you will be getting 20 or 30 likes per picture you post. Don't force things too fast. Slow and steady, some pages build faster then others. All it takes is one person who has 1000 or so friends, or who has a business himself and things can take off!

    I think it may be harder to get them to actually share it on their wall, but I have about 5-10 people depending on what I post that always like my post/pics. This is generally because I like their post/pics as well.

    We all know it's easier for females too. Anything they post 50 guys are salivating, liking, and commenting. Pretty sad really LOL...

    To the OP: On those times you posted what time zone are you in?

    I didn't know people still did this, I was doing viral fan pages in march of 09-feb 2011, made a huge chunk of change but it got saturated to where it was hard to break $1k a day before the page got deleted, I couldn't imagin how hard it is to keep a monetized page going now a days

    I'm in the East Coast.

    @blanx2004 - you are right. The majority of my friends don't. Out of my 328 friends, I can get almost 5 likes everytime I post something. These are people are grew up with, went to highschool with and chicks I dated, so everyone is dialed in to everyone's stuff.

    Today I posted two things and received 8 likes and no shares on my personal page in total. That's all you need, little by little.

    This is exactly what I did. Just remember, Shares = Likes. If one person shares a photo to their wall and 2 of their friends see it and share the photo, that counts as 3 shares on a post. 2751 share is the best I've done. Here are my stats

    o Total Likes
    20,961
    o Friends of Fans
    7,201,628
    o People Talking About This
    15,929
    o Weekly Total Reach
    402,202
