Hello @firstmain-towncenter, I like @andrea-vahl‘s response to your question, and I’m going to add to that.
Contests are very effective, and if you know how to set it up properly, then you’ll start getting new likes. Most people prefer to be friends of people on facebook than fans, and in your case, you need to start restructuring your campaign.
Put up a little survey to find out what your community wants, and where they would like to get information from your business (Profile or page?). Another concept would be to let them know that most of your offers/promos are going to be running on the pages because the tools over there (Custom Tabs) allow you to easily integrate the deals, as opposed to using your personal profile (Besides, it’s frowned upon when you use your personal profile for promos).
I hope that helps.
