Use Promotions

Make sure people get something in return for liking your website with a promotion offer that they can easily redeem.  The more lucrative the offer is, the more sharing will happen between Facebook friends.  Fans of your site will want exclusive products, discounted prices, or to be notified early about upcoming events or specials that you are running.  Try to make the promotions give each fan the feel that they are special, not just a standard shopper.

Create a special landing page on your site that targets Facebook visitors.  Reinforce your promotions on the landing page and link your Facebook marketing to promote the landing page.  Be sure to put the social networking links on this page to encourage your fans to share this page.

Creating lots of content on your site is important. One of the best ways to create content on your site is to use a blog (tip: you can add a blog page from the Add Page within your site).  

More Visitors
HubSpot ( conducted a study that showed that websites that have a blog kept up to date have 55% more website visitors than a website that didn't have a blog.  HubSpot also found that websites that target the B2B market get 67% more leads each month than a website that doesn't have a blog.

If you need more convincing that a blog is a good idea for your website, consider that a blog is a great way to generate inbound links to your website.  By writing a blog that is useful to others, you will get links from other bloggers that reference your blog on their blog.
