How many businesses do you know that have a personal Facebook account? Well if you know any, did you know it’s against the Facebook terms of service?

I’m back! Haven’t posted here in a while so I decided I would share a killer guide with you that teaches you the fundamentals to creating the ultimate Facebook fan page. This is created for social media marketers on any level, whether you have yet to create your fan page or have an established audience and want to see more fans or higher conversions.
Just a quick update before I get started, the Facebook app that I’ve had in development for the past month is completed now and we’ve been through alpha testing and now looking for some beta testers before we fully launch it. The Facebook App let’s anyone easily create extremely viral contests, it’s built on the same concept that I used to build a list of over 400,000 people in under a week and on a completely different website have over 2 million unique visitors in under a month. If you’re interested in becoming a beta tester then leave a comment below and I’ll get back to you.
I’ve seen quite a few people trying to run competitions to get their business more known on Facebook, to get more fans, grow their list, etc. So I thought I would share all the different API features you can utilise in your Facebook applications to run your competition.

I thought I’d post a quick explanation of how this stuff works for anyone that doesn’t understand it or feels the need to change their password tons of times after clicking on the site.
Ok, so firstly the fan pages promoting the spam are:
I haven’t linked to them deliberately, if you want to visit the fan pages that’s fine since they don’t automatically execute anything (on visit) so you’ll be fine as long as you don’t follow the instructions. Read More..
It’s Friday again and I just remembered I’ve got to post something up about Facebook for “Facebook Friday”, it’s 11:04pm right now in the UK and I only just remembered to write this post now. Been super busy recently working on my video courses about Facebook and viral marketing, as well as building SqueezeTab.com.
For this week I wanted to showcase a great ‘squeeze tab’, by squeeze tab I mean a custom tab on a Facebook page which makes you click ‘Like’ or opt-in to an email list. In this example the squeeze tab makes users click Like and the incentive is to watch Eminem’s music video. Read More..
