I just wanted to remind everyone that it's completely cool to post your link if you're pointing out something in particular you've done or you're asking for help, but please don't just post a link to your Facebook page just to get likes or with no real comment or question. Self-advertising rules still apply even here!
Does anyone else here utilize a Facebook Fan Page to help market themselves? I've had a one for a long time but I don't use it effectively. Somehow though I've magically still managed to accrue a few fans, so I've kinda realized recently that I should actually try to make it a little better haha. I think FB can be a really powerful marketing tool if you can make yours stand out from the crowd, which granted, is kinda difficult when you're given such a narrow customization ability.
So I started by doing a little research trying to find fun things you -can- do with Facebook, and this led me to change my profile picture. The profile photos are pretty easy to update, and so important, since they're usually the first thing someone sees when they land on your page, and many people (myself included!) don't realize at first that you can actually use a picture up to 180x540 in size! Essentially, you can make a custom skyscraper banner for yourself that you use as your profile image instead of one little square photo.
I'm still working on mine to get it more cohesive, but just playin around with it, Facebook now looks like it's wearing one of my pendants! I think this is pretty eye-catching on a site full of identical templates, and it's fun to say that my charm is so awesome that even Facebook wears it.
Next I wanna make a custom welcome page using an FBML box.
So who here has a particularly awesome Fan Page? Have you done anything special with it? If not, you should
