                                who use the excuse that they are too busy to bother         determined an accurate ROI they are likely already on

                                Whenever someone interacts with your fan page,            Here’s how it works:
                                Facebook automatically notifies that person’s friends
                                through their news feed.                                  1. A person finds you on Facebook and becomes a fan.

                                The average Facebook user has 130 friends at this time.   2. That person’s friends are automatically notified that
                                                                                             they became a fan of your fan page.
                                That means that the more people who interact with
                                your fan page, the more people will find out about you,    3. The friend is curious about what you are up to, clicks
                                from their friends, virally, for free...                     the notification link and lands on your fan page.

                                That’s every business owner’s dream come true.            4. That person is impressed with what they see when
                                                                                             they land on your fan page and becomes a fan.

                         Jason Deitch
                                Jason Deitch has been following the social networking
                                phenomenon, specifically Facebook, since 2005 when his
                                wife became Facebook’s first Director of Marketing. At that
                                time, Facebook had less than 1 million users and was
                                limited to college and high school students.

                                Since then, Jason has passionately studied the evolution of
                                Facebook’s social graph and its’ implications for businesses
                                to use as an appropriate and effective marketing tool.

                                Jason graduated with honors from Northeastern University
                                ’91 with a major in Marketing. He has started and operated
                                multiple businesses primarily focused in the wellness
                                industry. He is the national bestselling co-author of the
                                book: Discover Wellness: How Staying Healthy Can Make You Rich.

                                Presently, Jason is the founder of Fan Page Generator, the
                                #1 leading custom landing page design firm for Facebook
                                fan pages and provides coaching and marketing consulting
