Increasing your Facebook Likes is how you increase your fans. Gathering fans can be done quickly using a number of tools, but the problem is you want to gather real fans that have the potential to become customers rather than just a bunch of Likes.

Its very easy to run a contest or sweepstakes on Facebook. You can even require that Facebook entrants have to first become a fan by liking your page in order to enter the contest. This can really increase your fans/likes. However, many businesses go about this the wrong way. They promote their competition using Newsfeeds.
