3 Make Money with Your Facebook Fan Page April 19, 2011
Here is a very Real Approach, that can make you lots of Money each day.
This is a Map to making money consistantly each day from your Facebook
This is exactly what we used to get 400-600 New VISITORS A DAY to Our
Website, if you want to make money, this technique will take a few weeks
or a month to get going, but you will see, that this can and does work if
you do it right!!
So let us ask you... what do you need for your Website to Make Money??
Traffic right?? Yes, It's Traffic, tons and tons of traffic. Now we don't know if
you'd tried Google Adwords, but we have and that has only left us broke,
now thinking back I know personally that we had maxed out 4 credit cards
with Google, with no profits in return. Just money spent!!
Google Adwords is a joke, they just keep charging your CC whether you
authorize them or not!! And the same with Yahoo Search Marketing, we
put a thousand into advertising with them, and they did the same, took
our money.. and with no results!!
So everyone is trying to get their Website to rank on the First Page of
Google, with no success, even when loads of money is spent to advertise.
So after this didn't work, we decided to look towards Social Networking to
get our Traffic, like Twitter and Facebook.
We want our Website to rank in the Seach Engines, and found that when
we post to Twitter and Facebook, that it does.... immediately show up in
Google~ Sometimes even on the First Page! Now this makes sense to use
the most popular Website on the WEB! (FACEBOOK!!) that has the most
traffic and over 500 Million users, now if we can just get a few thousand of
them to see our Products or Services.... that would be instant money in our
Facebook Fan Page's are great for SEO, and rank high in Google Search
Engines, so this is the absolute best idea to build our Fan Page's and load
them up with fans, this is free marketing at its best!
4 Make Money with Your Facebook Fan Page April 19, 2011
What can an INTELLECT FanPage with lots of Fans do for me?
• Brand Consistance
Targeted Traffic...Visitors to Your Website who WILL Purchase your Service
So now we will show you, how to make an INTELLECT FAN PAGE that adds
100 more fans daily on auto-pilot, and will bring UNIQUE TRAFFIC TO
Watch your sales explode, your rank grow in Google, and see your PayPal
Account fill up with Cash!!
So before you make a Fan Page, lets work on getting more friends.
This is secret info. and we take this method seriously, keeping our Fan
Page URL private, helps us protect Our Business and Our Facebook Fan
Page Fans. You See... Facebook will take down any Fan Page if someone
reports it....for no reason at all...so we can't take any chances, risk losing
sales and hurting our Business this way... so to be safe we keep this info.
Here is our Trusted Method:
We recommend opening a New FaceBook Account just for your Business.
Because We like to keep Our Personal Accounts and Business Accounts
We will show you how to add friends to your New Business Facebook
5 Make Money with Your Facebook Fan Page April 19, 2011
Account. (Plus we don't really want to "risk" getting banned with a
personal account...there is a chance of getting blocked for a couple
days...and FaceBook is known for being "Ban-Happy" so the safest way to
to start from scratch with a different Brand New Account.
Its your choice if you would like to open your New Facebook Account
from a new IP. This way there is no link between your personal account
and your New Business Account. We will leave that up to you. We have 10
Facebook Accounts from the same IP and have gotten blocked serveral
times from 2-7 days... but not one has been banned. So its your call.
Here are the Steps:
1.) First make a New Gmail Account just for your New FaceBook Account,
you can use a "Female Name" in it if you wish, or just use something you
can remember, this is the email you will use to login to your New
Go to: https://www.google.com/accounts
2.) Your going to need contacts, emails, that you can use to add to your
Gmail account, Facebook lets you upload your Gmail contacts as "friends"
and send invites to them. So lets get started!! Facebook allows you to add
a Maximum amount of 5000 friends... so lets do it!! You should be able to
hit 5000 friends within 14-30 days.. depending on how you fast you work :)
3.) Go to Facebook.com and sign-up for a New Account.
You can sign-up using a different name and a different birth date than
your personal account. We recommend and have had success using a
sweet, nice sounding female name and picture for your Profile Picture.
Make sure you use a real "looking" picture. You can search free photo sites,
Flickr and Google for Images for your profile pic, main thing is that you
don't violate any copyright terms.
You will see this works....(you can make this account your own, however, a
personal account, with a female on it tends to make friends faster, thats
6 Make Money with Your Facebook Fan Page April 19, 2011
all. And you can change the picture and name later on..
Your Goal is to get 5000 friends to your New FaceBook Account.
4.) So once you have a nice real-looking profile picture uploaded, than you
are almost ready to find friends.
5.) You will see step 2 when signing up for FaceBook is to "Invite Friends
6.) Try to fill in where you went to school, or college, places you've worked,
Music, Movies, Books that you like, make your profile look inviting, instead
of empty and bare. This will have a positive effect when you are
7.) Accept Friend requests as they come in, but don't add friends who
don't know you (except through your email accounts.)
(Now having tested this on Facebook, Facebook does allow you to import
from Gmail Contacts when you first signup with a Brand New Account.)
So now we found this method to be unbelievable at getting friend
requests~ about 100 people will join your Facebook Account daily.
We are going to show
you how EASY and Fast
this Method is, and
with consistantly in a
Month or less you will
be running to the
Bank~~ (to get your
Money..from all your
Keep reading and you
will see how truely easy this is!! And you'll probably be wondering why
7 Make Money with Your Facebook Fan Page April 19, 2011
you didn't think of this method yourself.
Now we will show you how to Get Email Addresses to use as Facebook
Contacts and Import into your Gmail Account.
Facebook Allows you to add contacts from your Gmail Account and
automatically sends a "Friend Request" to them. You can import up to
10,000 contacts to your New Gmail Account.
So here's how you do it!
1. Get Gmail Addresses, either from a List or we recommend using an
Email List Generator, or you can acquire these Contacts from Facebook
Some of you may have Email Lists already, you can use these... some may
be old though or the people may not be on Facebook or they may be
But its up to you if you want to try this method using Email Lists that you
2. We recommend using an Email List Generator, because they are much
cheaper than purchasing email lists.. which can cost you from $500-1000.
Email List Generators are used to generate email id's from common
people, not businesses or companys, that way your more apt to reach a
real person on the web, that has a Facebook Account.
There are many Email List Generators available on the internet, that allow
you to generate thousands of emails within minutes, from all different
locations, changing the setting and domain this produces unique email
contacts to import into your Gmail Account.
There are a few you can try that we found are available on the web... or if
you wish to search google for free Email ID List Generators... please let us
know if you find any or would recommend them so we can add the links
to this e-book. We have listed below the one that we have tried and used
with much success.

Acute Email IDs Production Engine
Acute Email IDs Production Engine seems to work excellent for us, its
$27.00 and its inexpensive,fast and easy to download, plus outstanding
support, if you need any help or have any questions.
(We are not endorsing this email software, and are not affiliated with any
of these companies). But we did purchase this and have had success.
If your low on cash, here's another way that you can get email addresses
once you create your New FaceBook Account, you can search in FaceBook
for "Mass Email Lists",this allows you to "join the discussion", you can take
these names and import them into a .CSV file and import them into your
Gmail Contacts. The good news is that these people already use Facebook
and and are wanting to add more friends, so your friend requests should
most likely be accepted.

groups that come up.
All with people that
want for you to add
Now we've using the
"invite" feature to add
And Facebook blocks our
Account when we do this
for a few days.
So the best way we found to do this is to save the emails into our .CSV file,
import this to our Gmail Contacts, and Export into a text file.
Than upload this when FaceBook asks you if you have any Gmail Contacts
If you don't see this option you go to your Account (right-side) "Edit
Friends", Click on "Find Friends" on the left-hand menu.
10 Make Money with Your Facebook Fan Page April 19, 2011

above)Now "Browse" files, find the Gmail File that you Exported to a text

your Gmail Account and upload them to Facebook.
From there Facebook will let you know who is on Facebook and ask you
who you want to send friend request too. You will see this on your screen.
So go ahead and check "select all friends" and click the blue button "Add as Friends".
You will now be brought to this screen (shown below).
12 Make Money with Your Facebook Fan Page April 19, 2011
And here you will want to "SKIP" inviting friends.
This is how to add friends for free:)
Now if you want to do this fast and have a diverse selection of Gmail ID's
to choose from you will see that Email Generators have a great success
rate, and 80% of the time will find active email address, so not to waste
your time. We want working emails, with real people on the other end so
that we can connect with them as friends.
Now we will show you how to save your email ID's in a text file folder and
how we use the Email Generator.
Are you Ready.... Here we go..This is very easy and crucial to your success.
Lets start with near about 1000-2000 email IDs, make this with your Email
ID Generator and then save the text file in a Folder, so you can get to it

Great!! Congrats! You have successfully made a CSV File containing
thousands of Unique Email ID's in it. Your work is 70% done, now lets
Now you know how to save a contact file (.CSV) in the format. Now you
want to make as many contact files (.CSV) as you want by making different
email IDs, paste and save them in Microsoft Spreadsheat as .CSV files, so
you can import them to your Gmail Account.
Now focus and keep working at this, its not that fun, but trust me it will
Let get these contacts into your Gmail Account.
1. Now, open your Gmail account and click on contacts on the left-hand
20 Make Money with Your Facebook Fan Page April 19, 2011
2. Click on "More Options" toward the middle of the page, a menu will drop down and
you will click on "Import ".
3. The option to browse your file folders will come up (as shown above),
this is where you choose your Windows SpreadSheet .CSV file that you
saved with all the Gmail Addresses in it.
4. Now Click Import and you will see a message that confirms that the
email IDs from that CSV file has been imported in your Gmail Account. "
You have imported 1321 Contacts" and this only took a few minutes.
21 Make Money with Your Facebook Fan Page April 19, 2011
5. Continue this process again and keep repeating this by making New
CSV Files as you did earlier.
Your goal is to When upload 2-4 CSV files, until your Gmail Account
reaches the maximum number of contacts allowed which is 10,000(so just
get close to 10,000) do not go over or your Gmail Mailbox will read as full
and you won't be able to upload anymore contacts.
You should have 9000-10000 contacts in it, you will get a message that
Gmail can not import more contacts, as your address book is full. So if
thats the case figure out how much room you have left... and upload a
number of contacts within that amount..for example if you have 9,000
contacts, than u can import only 1,000 more, so import 897 or 998 but
make sure u stay under the 10,000 import limit.
There is one more step once you have reached your "limit" of contacts in
your Gmail account you will want to "Export" this file to a .CSV file.
22 Make Money with Your Facebook Fan Page April 19, 2011
Now go ahead and "Save" this as a .CSV file. (See pic below)
23 Make Money with Your Facebook Fan Page April 19, 2011
Go ahead and select "other email service" and put in your Gmail Address, when you go
to type in your password, you will see the screen below come up.
24 Make Money with Your Facebook Fan Page April 19, 2011
There is another way you can get your Gmail Contacts into your New Facebook
Account and you will see this as STEP 2 right after you sign up for Facebook. You can
Import your contacts at this time by connecting to your Gmail Account. (If this is your
second step, and Facebook is asking for your Gmail Contacts, than Facebook will ask
you your Gmail Name and Password, so put it in, or If you are already logged in your
Gmail account, then Facebook won't ask for your name or password, Facebook will ask
for your permission to "allow". Click "allow" so that Facebook can connect to your
Gmail to retrieve your Gmail Contacts.) If you have passed this second step when
signing up for your New Facebook Account. Than use "other email service " option.
So now Facebook is importing your contacts from your Gmail Account and
finding"new" friends on Facebook using the newly created contacts . This may take a
When Facebook finishes importing your Gmail contacts, Facebook now will show you
25 Make Money with Your Facebook Fan Page April 19, 2011
out of these Gmail Contacts which one's are already on Facebook, and how many of
them you can now add as friends (automatically sends friends requests too).
Check this out!!! Facebook imported my all 9680 contacts from Gmail
account and found that 323 out of those are already on Facebook. You
know, what does it mean? It means, Itv You can send a friend request to
323 PEOPLE with one "click" this is Awesome!! And will give you a huge
head start to getting friends to your Facebook Account!
After Facebook sends friend requests to Facebook users, Facebook will
now show the contacts that are NOT on Facebook.
26 Make Money with Your Facebook Fan Page April 19, 2011
You want to SKIP this STEP, DO NOT SEND INVITES!
This is the fastest, most realistic way of getting friends to your Facebook
FanPage. Now you set the pace, we have to continue if you wish to see
success!! You will soon have 5000 friends within a month or less!
Now you can go back into your Gmail and delete those contacts, you can
import new contacts now, but we recommend that you only do one .CSV
file at a time, maybe once a day to be safe so your Facebook Account
won't get blocked or banned.
If it does don't worry they usually only block you from adding friends for a
couple days, and then u can continue adding at a slower pace. (Facebook
has gotten alot stricter on Spam.. so you may get a block, but just don't
give up!!) If all fails go to a new IP and make a New Account, you can do
this just keep focused and the more persistant the more success you will

HERE'S WHY YOU NEED TO MAKE A FACEBOOK FANPAGE!
When Facebook announced the Fan pages, there were a number of mixed
reviews. Some where hailing it and its integration to the new advertising
platform and some hated it – claiming it was turning Facebook into Myspace.
Whatever your stance is, here are 6 reasons you need to make a Facebook
page for your Website or company now.
1. Pages are public. Most of Facebook is behind a login, preventing
search engines from indexing. However, some Fan pages are not behind a
login and thus search engines can index the page. Hopefully, people will
stumble on the result in SERPs, visit the Facebook page, and then get to
your site via the link (see reason #2).
36 Make Money with Your Facebook Fan Page April 19, 2011
2. Pages include links. Because the pages are public, you can get some
nice facebook.com link credit. You can’t use an anchor text, but hey, it’s
3. Send “updates to fans”. One of the greatest features is that you can
send “updates” to fans whenever you want. It’s a nice way of building a
database of interested users. Send messages about new products,
updated Website, etc.
4. You control the page. Making the page before a Fan or a competitor is
critical. You want to be able to send the messages, edit or remove
sections, and control the information to an extent.
5. News feed. When a someone joins a Fan page, it’s published in their
News feed for all their to read (unless they have turned this off). It makes
someone joining your Fan page somewhat viral.
6. It’s free and easy. Making a Fan page takes just a few minutes – add some
information, URL, and upload the logo and you’re done.

Why A Facebook Fan Page Is A MUST
Do you own a business? If so, you really need to consider setting up a
Facebook fan page. What is a fan page you may say? Originally, the intent
behind Facebook fan pages was to allow “famous” people or large
companies to connect with the masses. A personal profile page within
Facebook has a limit of 5000 friends and many requested a larger “fan”
option, thus the “Fan Page” was born.
You might be thinking…well I am not a celebrity OR a large company so
why do I need a Fan Page? Regardless of what type of business you have,
you can benefit from having a fan page presence on Facebook and here is

Fan pages are a bit of a different animal and because they are different,
they add value that your personal profile does not. Fan pages allow you
to brand your business, use your logo and customize your “look” just as
you would a Website. With this extremely valuable tool available to you,
you can keep your “brand” consistent across the board as it relates to all
aspects of your online presence.
The other value to fan pages is that you can keep the personal “you”
separate from the business “you”. This is a great way to still maintain
relationships with family and friends through your personal profile while
maintaining a separate business presence on Facebook.
Your personal profile page has a limit of 5000 friends that is imposed by
Facebook. While most of us do not have 5000 personal friends, if you are
combining your personal friends with your business contacts or prospects,
this number can be turn out to be very limiting.
A fan page, on the other hand, will allow you to have an unlimited number
of “fans”. Some celebrity fan pages number into the thousands and even
millions of fans.
The other really big advantage of a fan page versus your personal profile,
it that a fan page will allow you to send updates to all your fans at one
time. Your personal profile page only allows you to send out to 20 people
at a time. However, I would caution against contacting your fan base
more than a few times a week.
You should be careful to consider their time and you certainly don’t want
to overtax their inbox with miscellaneous stuff that could just as easily be
posted to the fan page wall. Sending too much stuff will simply annoy
your fans and cause them to leave your fan page.
This is a BIGGEE! Fan pages are fully indexed by Google, which means that
anything you post on your fan page can be found by anyone doing a

Google search. Content from your personal profile page or a group does
not have this same benefit. Exposure to your business or service will be
expanded because your social media content will now be found by
anyone (not just a Facebook user) who searches via Google. Additionally,
Facebook is the 2nd most trafficked site; second only to Google in fact.
Any links from your fan page to your Website will increase your chances of
achieving higher rankings within Google.
Your personal profiles as well as groups are semi closed environments,
depending on privacy settings or the option of joining a specific group.
Your fan page, on the other hand, is totally open to anyone who stumbles
across it. If someone is searching for something through Google and your
fan page pops up, that person can view the entire fan page without
“liking” or “joining”. Obviously, it is your hope that they will “like” the
page. You can add incentives to build the desire to join your fan page but
joining is not necessary for them to view the content of the page.
Interaction with Your Target Market (Fans)
Your Facebook fan page permits you to have a more personal
communication with your fans than you can have through your Website.
Obviously, you could set up forums or other communication methods but
most small business owners do not travel this road. Adding features such
as this can be costly and many small businesses simply do not set aside
funds for this type of customer interaction. This is why a Facebook fan
page is so valuable. You can have all the collaboration tools available
within Facebook for FREE! You can share content, videos, photos, run
contests, ask questions, etc. This interaction will build relationships with
your target market (fans). Encouraging interaction and building a sense of
community will ensure that they keep coming back.
Drive Traffic to Your Site
Another huge benefit to Facebook fan pages is that you can customize
them and make them appear as a mini version of your Website. You can
have an opt-in option, display videos, and even have customers order
directly from your fan page. Remember Facebook has over 350 million
ACTIVE users and if you tap into even a fraction of this market, WOW! By
connecting and building relationships you dramatically increase your

ability to market your products and services to your fan base!
Facebook allows the end user to upload videos, photos and audio files for
FREE. Essentially this means that you do not have to worry about your
web host dinging you for more bandwidth if your video goes viral and
gets 500,000 views in a month. Additionally, it is a known fact that people
response rates to videos are much higher than text. The use of videos on
your fan page will increase the quality their experience on your fan page
which will keep them coming back.
You might feel that your business would not generate a lot of interest but
fan pages are a MUST if you own a business. They provide one more way
for your business to be “seen” and that is a crucial piece of marketing
