Post regularly on it

As you believe lead generation is an ongoing process, you facebook fan page should get into sync with it. Posting regular updates is proving that you are still alive on social media. When a fan comes to your page and finds out the last update shows up with the date before a month or two, the next second he’s gone.

Post something human. Facebook has rolled out some major changes for its newsfeed eliminating and less prioritizing the posts that are useless and automated using third party applications

Festival seasons are more commercial than normal days. So be smart and choose a best season for signing up.
