Ladymirzri, I'm in south Texas too! i added you for solidarity Smiley My page doesn't have very many yet either, but I'm just getting started and haven't done much yet. There's a share button on your page; all I did was just press that and say something like "Hey guys, 'like' my craft page! Once I get 25 people, I can register a user name. Tell your friends!" One of my friends offered an incentive (a drawing for a free item) to get to her goal number that worked as well. Other than that, I've put the link on my business card so people will go and hopefully add me once I start passing them out. Hopefully that helps!

I have a "Like" page for Brutemus & friends. A lot of my friends and family have liked it lol a few random people that I don't know have as well. I update my photos regulary and post relevent status updates too. I try not to SPAM people since I do post a lot of pictures. My info is all filled out as well. I think I've had one sale from there.
I added the Etsy app as well.

I also bought an ad on FB. It's really interesting and you don't have to spend a lot of $ on it. Since just about everyone is on FB all the time and I know I always see advertisements on the side of my page I thought I'd try it out.

So far I've had 5 or 6 new likes in a couple of days.

I just started out so I only have a few people that like my page xD

I found that if you put random question that involve your product you will find more and more people. I usually ask questions like "What diaper is your little one wearing right now?" and I get a couple more responses each time.
As for other type of "likers" I don't have any major ideas, I guess just word of mouth.

I have a facebook fan page, I would really love to see some more traffic on it! http://www.facebook.com/KissingBunniesCloth

I've just created a page as my brother wanted me to (he is making my website):

There's not much on there but it'll stop my personal page on FB being covered with spam of my craft updates for customers.  I'm not so much bothered about too much traffic there until I have my website up and running. 

I've been liking a few things related to crafts/rats whatever else is sort of linked to my own interests - including some Craftsters' FB pages Smiley

Mine is www.facebook.com/amy.gaspard.designs

I never thought of using your photo as a banner, but I'm also not that great with graphics.  Still, it's something to think about.  I definitely have a loooong way to go with my page.  I know there's a lot more I could be doing with it, but I have a hard time justifying spending the time on it.

I have a Facebook fanpage up for my business (see below for link), and have gotten about 450 "likes" so far...most of them friends of people I know, the remainder of them are friends of friends. I'm on FB a lot, because I work from home as a graphic designer, and I've updated it a lot with different designs (I design t-shirts as my other, crafty, business).  Have only been using it for a couple months, and have gotten a handful of sales from it, but no more there than from my website proper.

I've gotten feedback from a few people on the following:

1) Don't always post about "business"... that is, yeah, you want to sell your goods on FB, but make sure to not over-saturate it with "buy, buy, buy!"

2) Keep it fun... post some funny pics (tasteful, of course), videos, and links. Motivational quotes are good too. Or use the "Questions" feature in FB to start a poll, to ask your followers their opinion.

3) Keep your followers involved... like in #2, a Poll Question can be used, trivia questions, or just their opinion on a particular issue (usually best to relate it to your product). The more comments and likes you get from followers, the more of their friends will see it in the Newsfeed, and the more chance more of THEIR friends will come to your page to see what all the hubbub is about!

Good luck, hope this helped!

I too have a Facebook page, but am so far behind understanding FB that I got nothing going on.  I am, however, currently running a Facebook ad, linking directly back to something on my on-line store.  It took about 6 tries to understand what it was all about, but so far, in less than 24 hours, have about 35 hits on my website, with a fairly low bounce rate.  Since this was the purpose of the ad campaign, I feel pretty successful.  I am not actually expecting sales from the campaign.

As with everything else, the more activity and updating, the better.  My own blog is now doing better, as I am posting almost daily, and so is one of the other sites I post to for the same reason.

I say, keep at it, and share any suggestions.  I am looking for someone who understands Facebook who might be able to help me.  I think my brother uses it a lot.

If you like other crafters pages they should like you back.  Make an effort to 'like' or 'share' any of the work you see and genuinely like/want to share (no one likes a spammer) and other crafters should do the same in return.  That way your name will appear in more feeds of friends and gain more exposure.

I have liked some of the pages linked in this thread, feel free to like me back Wink
