    So I just started a fan page, and to give it a boast I spent $100 on advertising it.

    After about 1 hour the page is up to 500 fans. Do you think it will go viral?

    By the way, I'm not doing any tricks or using any special codes to make it go viral...

    Dude should have just spent the money on buying page invites instead of using facebook ads :p peter shaw has a service for 10k invites for 15 bucks. mostly overseas users tho. 500 users might go viral but it really depends on the page

    wayyy to early to tell. And 100 on facebook ads? Wow, theres much more things ya coulda done with that. IMO, that was poorly spent money, but hopefully it can turn out ok for you.

    Well I got 493 clicks on my ad for $100. And I have about 600 fans now. So that means over 100% of my clicks are signing up (obviously people referring their friends too)

    I think you have probably just wasted $100. Maybe you'll get lucky though if it's a good page.

    You guys are missing the point. I bought the traffic just to see how users would react to the page, I doubt I'll use FB ads for this in the long run.

    I'm looking at my report and the point is...

    Out of the 500 clicks I bought, 350 of those users 'opted' in and clicked
    the like button. Isn't that a pretty good conversion rate, 70%?

    Meaning 7 out of every 10 people that viewed my page clicked the like button.

    Yeah, 70% is a really good conversion rate, but the fact you spent $100 to get below 1000 fans, its not that good.

    The FACT is he got quality fans. People wanted to click his add, people wanted to click Like.

    He didnt waste money on having 10,000 useless fans they may not even be real and have no interest in anything that would be posted on the wall.

    100 percent true mate also i suggest srongly to op to capture their eails those are pretty strong leads make an fbml tab that contain a registration form and bribe them with a freebie
    unlike marketers that use the blackhat way of marketing you can contact an ad manager and ask him to turn the fbml tab as a default tab

    the best luck

    You hit the nail on the head. Although I would never spend $100 on FB ads in order to gain likes on one of my fan pages, I can definitely see why he did this. Most of the paid invites you will buy are overseas users, users who do not speak English, and/or simply do not give a damn about your page and its content.

    @abdoue2004: FB Ad Managers are willing to allow your FBML tab to be the default tab if all is WhiteHat? Hmm...interesting, I did not know this.
