    Hey,

    I was wondering if this is a sound strategy to drive traffic to my squeeze page and get subscribers onto my list.

    I create a FB fan page on the topic of my niche (maybe have my name in it) and then buy an FB ad to get likes to that page. I heard its cheaper when you link directly inside of Facebook. Is this true?

    Then, once I've gotten 100 or so likes I make a post on my fan page telling people about my site for them to visit.

    Is this a sound strategy?

    Do I have to 'engage' my fans before I promote? Do I gotta set up something through an iframe?

    Any help would be appreciated to make this work as best as possible.

    You'll definitely want to engage your audience as much as possible... there's no doubt about that.
    100 seems a bit low in my opinion but depending on the size of your niche it may be appropriate.

    But that's definitely a sound way to drive traffic. What you're driving them to matters, though. Make sure you prove value.

    You need something engaging first. And advertising on Facebook sucks if it is not targeted. Facebook has a very low ctr on their ads.

    Free giveaways for just freebies along with very new fresh content about niche always helps.

    I might make it like an official page branding me. Its a niche I want to make a name for myself in so why not?

    I'll be posting some cool posts to help them out of course but I wanted to see if after getting new fans people are reactive to posts and click on them easily.

    You need to focus on gorilla marketing. IE they go to your squeeze page and they have to like and share with their friends to continue. This is one way that I drive traffic to my money site. I also install the RSS graffiti app and find websites that are relevant to my niche. Then I include a message saying go to my website for bla bla bla. So when something new is created from one of the blogs I have in RSS Graffiti feed it to my fanpage.They will either click on the article or my money site. Once there they will have to share, like, or G+ to unlock my content.

    You need your own twist that is going to make people want to read and review your fan page. If your just pitching your site your not going to get a lot of traffic from your pages unless your scaling the idea over many pages. Would be way better to do some sort of bait and switch or even buy a bigger fan page and just toss up some status updates and remove them after the first hour or so. Personally from the sound of what your trying to do you tube might be a better option to start with.

    Post good, intersting content in your page. Give ad in FB also. It drives lot of traffic to the website. Websites with lot of likes always gets more traffic.
