Create Engaging Content: Create content with videos, images, questions, polls, views, suggestions and such to stimulate actions from users. This way, you will not only engage with current fans but also encourage them to share to their friends.

Engage with fans (users who have liked your page): You need to respond to their queries and comments. If it’s a positive comment…. send your appreciation. If it’s a negative comment…. handle it politely by providing a fix. As everything is public in Facebook, you need to stay vigil and respond immediately.

Join groups in your niche market: A Facebook page represents a brand, the group represents a community. It acts like a chat room for members with similar interest. You could start your group to create a community of your own.

Don't use too much sales pitch. 20% of the content should be promotional, 80% of content should be informative and interesting: Nobody wants to promotional messages being bombarded in their timeline; it’s like forcing your fans to purchase your product or service. instead post interesting post such as images, videos, company announcement, company insights etc. If you post 5 updates per day, keep 1 for promotion and the rest to build community.

Create custom tabs: Create custom tabs to help fans navigate through various categories of post.

Use insights:Insights are great to track and report your progress in Facebook marketing campaigns.

Connect other social media channels: Connect other social media channels such as twitter, instagram, pinterest images to promote other social media channels of your business.

Use #HashTags: Use #HashTags to find relevant post as per the tag. You can use relevant #HashTags in your posts to make it searchable by Facebook users.
