I would much prefer having fans that are truly interested in what I have to offer. What good is 200 fans if 150 of them are just people who are not truly interested, possibly have your page posts muted, and never interact.
As for others here and what we can do for each other, I think it would make far better sense to post something to our personal group of Facebook friends something along the lines of:
“Hey, Facebook friends! If you’re in the Dover, NH area and looking for help building a social presence for your local business, give Matt Hamilton at Near Coast Media a call, or you can check out his Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/nearcoastmedia“
Of course, I’d only do something like this if I was pretty sure I knew someone in that area, and I certainly wouldn’t do something like this very often. I don’t want to alienate my *own* friends or leave them feeling spammed.
But I think something like this could be more effective than simply “liking” a Facebook page for a business we really know nothing about and have no plans to interact with or be a customer of.
