Facebook Fanpages and Internet Marketing

Facebook Fanpages are a traffic source and tool that cannot be ignored for an internet marketer. In the Learn And Earn Internet Marketing Competition, you will notice a high Facebook involvement between me and the participators of the competition.

It allows me to stay leveraged with my time and work with and help a lot of people, while it allows you to keep a clear eye on the happenings and updates as the competition transpires.

The Facebook Fanpage

The Facebook Fanpage is the place to stay up to date with everything about the Internet Marketing Competition. The page is Sean Rasmussen Talks. I will also point out another important part of the fanpage in a moment. You can join simply by clicking “Like” at the top of the page (as seen in the image below). If the “Like” button is not there, it means you are already a member of the page.

Joining The Internet Marketing Competition

To join the Internet Marketing Competition and be eligible to Learn And Earn during the next 7 weeks, you will need to be a part of the Facebook Fanpage. This is the best way for me to get updates to you fast (without emails) and it keeps it all in one place with full transparency for all to enjoy.

It also allows you to see exactly how many people are part of the competition. Now, I have given you even more transparency! Social media allows for open communication and you will have an increasing ability to see exactly what is happening in the Internet Marketing Competition as we learn and earn for the next 7 weeks.

Make sure you are part of the Facebook Fanpage and share it with your friends.

I’ll see you there.

    I love the sense of community that’s building on Sean Rasmussen Talks. It’s great to see so many people excited about such a fantastic competition.

  3. Using Facebook is a simple yet great way to host this competition… will be interesting to see how many more likes the Sean Rassmussen Talks Fanpage receives before kickoff on Monday! : )

  4. Hi Sean
    I have just realised that I am getting more breadth and depth knowledge of how social media works. Just getting ready for this comp has taught me more about Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, and Digg. I can also see and feel a great community of funloving, like minded action takers swelling in numbers every day, and already I am starting to make friends with many more fabulous people. This competition has started something truly awesome and it really is exciting!
    Kind regards

  5. Great to see how fast the membership is growing for the fan page. Up to 1111 – lots of no 1’s there πŸ˜‰ when I just checked.

    Keep checking the Facebook fanpage for the latest updates and make sure you have signed up for the webinar on Monday.

  6. Never done this kind of thing before and not really sure what to expect but everyone sounds very happy and excited of what the next seven weeks hold….eager to participate.

  7. Jen Nelson says:

    I’ve been a member of the fan page for a while although I haven’t been a big user of facebook until now. I’ve never seen the like word which tells me how many how many fans there are anywhere. I just looked again & it’s still not visible. Can someone please tell me how to make it visible?

    Have a wonderful evening everyone!


    Jen πŸ™‚

    • Hi Jen,

      It’s not the “like” word that will change into a number, but once you “like” the page (and therefore become a fan of it) you can see how many others “like” this page.

      To find that number:
      – go onto the SeanRasmussenTalks Facebook page
      – scroll down and check on the left for the line “xxx people like this”

      At the moment 1.126 people “like” this page πŸ™‚

      That shows you how many fans that page has at the moment and therefore the maximum number of people participating in the competition so far (as you have to register as a fan to participate).

      Hope that helps πŸ™‚

  8. Hi Sean,

    most of my facebook friends already like that page, so now I am off to invite everybody else to Learn and Earn. What a great target to increase the number of funs up to 5000 – and a brilliant way to do it.

    I am really excited about learning heap over the next few month – what a year!!!

    .-= Renee´s last blog ..Motivational Music =-.

  9. This is all shaping up to be so much fun.. and the ‘busy-ness’ on the Sean Rasmussen Facebook fanpage has to be seen to be believed! I am enjoying this already.
    .-= Jo Carey-Bradshaw´s last blog ..Empowering Mindset – Obstacles or Pffffffft =-.

  10. I think the idea of a competition involving internet marketing is a unique way to lean. I am sure as we progress in our learning our ‘competitive juices’ will only help us to develop as future marketers.
    thanks again Sean

    It’s Monday – YAY! Bring it on, Sean!

  20. Hi Sean,

    I feel so amazed by your generosity that I wrote a blog post to help get the word out about the Learn and Earn Competition. There is certainly a lot of positive comments from some very excited people on Sean Rasmussen Talks page on facebook.

    Only moments away, can’t wait πŸ™‚

    What a fantastic Webinar! This is going to be wonderfully fun as well as educational. πŸ˜€

  22. I set up a facebook fanpage for my own website but haven’t used it that much as of yet. Seeing how you can keep in touch with everyone easily to tell them about the competition has been a lightbulb moment.
    .-= Jackie Stenhouse´s last blog ..Falling Pregnant =-.

  23. I’m starting to see how intertwined this competition and the internet marketing/social media learnings are, it’s brilliant! Look how much buzz has been generated. There’s so much to be taken away by every step here.

    • Cathy and Trevor Howitt says:

      This is the best part of learning…..learn through experience, and we are all certainly doing that.

  24. I have been a fan of your Facebook for quite some time now. Am a little slow picking up these IM strategies myself but happy to pass your email about the contest on. Cheers

  25. Cathy and Trevor Howitt says:

    Social networking certainly is the way to go. I’ve been slow on the uptake with it all, but thanks to some great information from Sean and “hands on” learning, will get the hang of it sooner rather than later (I hope).
    Regards Cath and Trev

  26. Cathy and Trevor Howitt says:

    PS: Just trying to work out how the gravatar works. Changed a picture, so will see if that one comes up now. (All part of social networking I’m sure!)

  27. Sean McLaughlin says:

    When I first went on this fanpage I could not believe how many people were involved in the competition. Here I was thinking I was one of the few people interested in Internet Marketing!!

  28. Hi Sean

    It’s great to see this fanpage of yours swelling with new faces and old all enjoying the competition.

    I can now see the benefits of having a fanpage because the people who are following you are concentrated into one area and we all get to meet each other (like minded souls). I have met lot’s of new people already through this competition.

    I would definitely consider creating a fanpage in the future but at present, my dog is unable to type so he can’t get into Facebook to support me (lol).

    .-= Elly´s last blog .. =-.

  29. Hello Sean,

    Be great to spread the news. I have been telling so many new internet friends about your Internet Program, but forget to mention this competition – oops !! Will need to go back and tell them πŸ™‚

  34. Facebook fanpages have been essential during the competition and allow everyone to keep up to date. Sean Rasmussen Talks has kept me up to date with what’s going on and I’ve connected with a lot of new people. They are great resources.

    It’s a voluntary choice because I luuuuuuuuvvvvv pizza.

  37. I had a look, liked it and became a member of the Melbourne Pizza Delivery Facebook Fanpage.

    I think I’m going to try to sell the idea of a Facebook Fanpage to my neighbour for his pizza business. He has a lot of University of Ottawa students as clients.

    • I wouldn’t hold my breath if I were you. Lots of places it could go missing between Melbourne and your place so probably not a good idea to go online to order your Melbourne Pizza Delivery.

      Anywhos by the time it got to your place it would be cold! Maybe even mouldy (hehe)!

      It would be even worse for over here – maybe even a bit soggy too!

      Great to see you like Pizza with Melbourne Pizza Delivery on Facebook. I have added 50 points to your score. Well done and eat well πŸ˜‰

    .-= Helen Nester´s last blog ..Sean Rasmussen – Success Communicator =-.

    • There’s a niche market for someone – teleportals to add a new DIMENSION to the Melbourne Pizza Delivery service.

      I wonder how it would affect the taste?? Hmmm …

    • Hi Helen
      Home made pizza made by the kids is really yum and especially if we can arrange for someone other than me to clean up afterwards. πŸ™‚ Sounds great Helen and I have added 50 points for Facebook like to your competition tally.

  45. I have been a member of the Facebook Fanpage that has a great focus on Internet Marketing by Sean Rasmussen since the beginning of the competition For A Few Dollars More and can thoroughly recommend this. It has been and is a great networking tool. Other pluses are that I have got to meet so many wondeful people from all over the world and feel I have made many friends. It has been a goldmine for getting tips and information and keeps us up to date with whatever Sean is doing. Thank goodness for the Facebook Fanpage and the way it supports Internet Marketing tips and advice. πŸ™‚

  46. Hi Sean

    I have just revisited your “Facebook Fanpage” for Melbourne Pizza Delivery.

    I remember when you first started that fanpage and all the excitement and movement that happened there while people were causing a flurry with their commenting.

    Great to see it is still going strong. I haven’t received the Pizza I ordered all those months ago. I would like to cancel it now as it’s probably a bit cold (lol)

  47. Ailsa Smith says:

    I had a look at the facebook fanpage for Melbourne Pizza Delivery. I thought it was great so I have joined it. I think facebook is a great way to stay in touch with others and fanpages are a great way of keeping people up to date with what is happening. It certainly did for the Learn and Earn Competition.

  48. I came, I saw, I Liked!
    So I am officially a member of the “Melbourne Pizza Delivery” Facebook Fanpage. πŸ™‚

    And if it were physically possible through the computer screen, I would’ve eaten – the pizza looks soooooo good! πŸ˜‰ It would’ve made a great snack while watching today’s internet marketing competition webinar, Rank’em High…
    .-= Mel Smith´s last blog ..Sean Rasmussen – Inspirational Aussie Internet Marketer =-.

  49. Thanks for this site commending Facebook. I just admit that when I first joined Facebook, back in the Stone Age, I was concerned about the loss of privacy etc.

    However, there have been several events that have made my life better and happier that occurred through Facebook. I have found and been found by people with whom I had lost contact. Also I have made new friends which would not have happened otherwise.

    Properly used, I agree it is a wonderful resource. I hope it will continue to help all of us in many different ways.

    • Great to meet you too Dobbs. Should be celebrate by ordering from the Melbourne Pizza Delivery service? Maybe we could invite some of the others too?

      • Absolutely

        If you are willing to have a wonderful pizza with molasses, grits, pecans, okra and a bit of catfish, yes, let’s do it.

        I am sure such a pizza will get everyone here hooked.

          Dobbs- I smell a southern boy! I think a pizza with grits and okra would be ab-fab and make me homesick for weeks! there is NOTHING i luv more than fried okra!

          • Erica

            I am an Arkansas Hillbilly having grown up in the Ozarks. We had fried okra at all times of day and for any reason. It was one thing my mother could actually cook and honestly one of the few, one of others being pecan pie.

            Now all y’all come and tote yer old man on over as well.

          • Now you too okra lovers are having a bit more of a reminisce about this thing it has got my curiosity as to what it was. It has now got the better of me and looked it up on Google. Do you chop it up and put in a stir fry too? No idea on the taste. I even saw a page about how to grow it in New Zealand so it’s obviously not too weird!!

          I do like pizza though maybe we don’t share the same taste in toppings πŸ™‚ I have added 50 points to your tally and eat well πŸ™‚

  52. I knew little about Facebook, Facebook Fanpages until this comp – and since it has been on, it has been a good demo of how to use it and its power. I just left a comment on Melbourne Pizza Delivery and the fan page. Great stuff

    • I was an intermittent user of Facebook but it was more of the blah, blah stuff (though not as far as pics with head in dunny or the likes). I was a fan of a couple of Fanpages but hadn’t really seen how I could make one or utilise that myself.

      I went on that Social Media webinar last week which in the main was just an overview and was more about what you could do and then of course you could contact them to find out more!!

      Having said that there was a couple of good examples of Fanpages (one one Facebook and the other on Twitter). The Facebook one is called Felix & Lily Handmade Wearbales – started by a couple of stay at home mums who have built a great business just using the Fanpage (no website). As their business has built substantially they are getting now getting one.

    • Hi Peter
      Thanks for liking pizza as I am a big fan of pizza too. I have added 50 points to your competition tally. Bon Apetite πŸ™‚

  53. Hi Sean,
    I have only been on facebook for a couple of years now, at first I was not interested in it! Since working with you, I now know how powerful and useful Facebook and other social media sites are. The Fanpage’s are great as well, having the extra pages added to your facebook, helps as with your marketing.

    Nor have I used the Facebook fanpage much, as due to only starting 3 weeks ago, my times seems to have been taken up with watching videos and webinars.

    However I do see its potential and I appreciate all you have shown us thank you Sean.

    Okay I haven’t got a multitude of fans yet. In fact I am the only one (hehe). But that’s going to change and I’m sure you lovely people [she says asking very politely] would love to join me.

    I am sure that Erika can give you more specific instructions about the okra than I can. I just eat it. I know that I think mother rolled it in something before she fried it but I have no idea what. The only thing I know is that there is nothing better anywhere in the world at any time of the day or night. Just be careful to make enough of it.

  63. I have very proudly made my own Facebook Fanpage but this one is not about internet marketing. It is for Timepieces NZ

    It is part of my master plan which includes doing a website for this business myself to have more control over SEO etc. Why not pay myself to do it!!

    Please jump on and be some of the first to ‘like’ it (that’s if you like it of course!). My goal is 1000 fans/likes by January 2011. If you do like it please share on Facebook to help me reach my goal sooner. It is a meagre start but now have a base to build on.

    I have also made a discussion topic for people to place feedback.
