    I'm looking for ideas about how to turn the healthy and growing Facebook page of a client's e-commerce business into sales for them.

    They have a good community of about 2,500 active enthusiasts who follow them and are active. I've done posts that have "reached" 35,000 people according to Facebook recently.

    Any ideas for how to turn this into sales, and/or how to grow this fan page's fans?

    Sales is all a numbers game and it would probably depend on exactly what these guys are selling. I haven't had too much luck converting facebook likes to actual sales unless it is an impulse type of product. You'll need to experiment.

    Do sales, or coupons convert into anything over Facebook in general? There are eyeballs... I just can't figure out how to turn those into anything useful. Luckily it is all organic FB likes that are actual people, so I'm at least not chasing ghosts.

    Try your best. Generating sales like that is very difficult though.

    If it's very hard to turn into sales then why does everybody in IM these days keep saying how important Facebook is???
