Getting Referrals Through Facebook Fan Pages

The popularity of Facebook these days is just astounding to me. I have to admit I was a holdout for about a year. I looked at it as more of a teen hangout and thought I wouldn't have the time or desire to use it. Well, I'm slowly learning the ropes and having fun reconnecting with some old friends and keeping in touch with far away family members.

Facebook is also a great place for businesses to connect with their customers on "fan" pages and where their customers can chat and share information with each other as well. So yesterday, I tried something new with Facebook and it worked out great!

Here's what I did. I became a "fan" of one of the retail websites that are in the ebates rebate program. I read their wall posts which were mostly blurbs about sales and coupons they were promoting. I then commented about how much I love that particular site/store and the great deals they offer and I also mentioned that I save even more by starting my shopping through ebates and left my ebates referral link. I just noticed this morning that I had 7 new ebates referrals after posting that comment and several "likes" from total strangers that read my comment. Pretty cool, huh?

FYI-If you're thinking about using facebook fan pages to promote one of your sites/programs just be sure your comment is relevant to the topic of the page so you don't come off as a link spammer and possibly get reported by others which could lead to getting banned from the page.
