    Hi
    I am not that great of a fb marketer but what is the best way to promote your fanpage without ppc ads?
    I've tried posting to related niche(eg new music video) fanpages but no traffic where coming. Posted 30 today and no clicks at all. Been doing this for the past 3 days.
    Is it better to make lots of first and post to my own walls?
    Is it better to send messages to people that are not your friends?

    Please any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Facebook ppc (which I see is not an option for you)
    Buy posts on large active pages

    I think what it meant was to contact those fanpage owners to post your link with a price.

    The truth is, imo, that building a page without spending money is very hard unless you don't have a massive traffic source already.

    So, assuming you're not gonna spend anything on PPC ads, I think the best thing you can do is starting to create a large network of accounts with friends that you're gonna use to promote your fan pages.

    Of course this is a lot of work, and will take time, but when you have like 100 accounts with 2k friends each you'll have 200k people you can send invitations to, and having that kind of traffic is a good way to start making money.

    Free methods always take time and effort. Here's what you can do:

    1. Use facebook as page

    2. Find relevant pages

    3. Like their page

    4. Find posts with a lot of comments and post your comment there, making sure that your are adding value to the post though.

    The trick here is to use a page name that arouse curiosity.

    Hope this help.

    well thats the thing. If I post to relevant fanpages it will take hours.
    So if I just comment on something. How will my fanpage get visits?

    I had purchase 1k likes from someone and did some few wall post and the response was zero. And these were quality people purchase from someone that had good reviews even from top members in bhw. From my understanding you have to have at least over 10k to even see something happening and the investment is high. And plus likes of a fanpage will only show in their feed and it will be seen less.

    Get active on FB Pages that are related to your fanpage!

    Build your fanbase, one fan at the time! That's what will get you the biggest result at the end!

    build your fanbase by posting on related fb pages. Might take a while but after you stick at it for a while it will become easier.
