My goal is to learn how to utilize FB Fan sites, along with strategic use of FB advertising, to start generating sales of my oil paintings and begin building an online following.
My FB Fan site was just created this year. I was previously using my personal FB site and getting good feedback from family/frends.
I’m not interested in getting ‘likes’ as much as I’m interested in building up a base of collectors and potential followers who like my paintings.
It seems like a reasonable goal. I just need to figure out how to go about it. I DO NOT believe in the Dave Thomas / Wendy’s “If you build it they will come” mantra. I don’t beleive that at all.
If you build it, you have to take ACTIONS to make people aware of it, and LURE them to your site, and then do things to retain them as viewers.
I’m still learning, but I’m realistic enough to know that just because you made it doesn’t mean you’ll be found and discovered!
If you want to see what I’ve done, and maybe provide ideas on how I could make it better, that’d be great. (My FB Site) But mostly, I’m interested in learning from others who may have used FB and FB adversiting successfully with limited resources to build up viewership.
