Firstly, every fan page will have a high number of inactive fans, fake fans sometimes or those just looking for a freebie! So you are not alone.
Now it isn’t these people that may be your market sure, but who do they know? Rather than worry about them only wanting a freebie, how about seeing who they know and accessing their friends and using their endorsement of you to pick up potential clients out of their friend base?
Now you are cooking with gas!
9000 fans x 130 friends = 1,170,000 people who if you target will see that one of their friends “likes” your page
130 based on average number of facebook friends per user.
The method to do this is through Promoted Posts and Page post ads.
The other thing is your boss is your boss so he will do what he wants while he is paying the bills but maybe you could suggest some cheaper products that might entice the freebie searchers to part way with a few bucks for something nice or small that is not really expensive?
If you have a large number of people looking for free stuff not high end items, maybe offer some products they may be able to afford and you will see a few of them convert to paying customers!
