Building a good Facebook fan base can be difficult. Especially in the beginning.
Check out this article that breaks down the tools you can use to make your life easier.
Hope this helps,
Michelle, I have to ask how having these likes will affect your business? Just having people like your page does not necessarily mean you will increase your client base. Many companies offer incentives to have people like pages, and these incentives often involve a promotion that ties in with their business. Likes do not necessarily mean more business. Give people a reason to like your page that ties in with your business.
What does 1,000 mean to you?
Does it matter to you where they come from?
Personally, I look at where my “likes” are from as opposed to how many there are. If a “like” isn’t local, then chances are it won’t translate to a customer.
Like Janet mentioned in her post, you might want to find a reason for people to like your page. For example, sometimes on my fb page, I post facebook-only discounts, and my fb fans are the very first to find the locations and dates of my special events / classes.
