    For my business I'll utilize Face book as a "notification platform" were my customers and others can see additional seasonal specials throughout the year (shrubs & hedges trimming specials, seasonal flowers install or new container install specials. I definitely will not utilize it as a chat room or for socializing venue.

    I will start using it for those reason's as well.

    I've only have my page and website up for a short time. My website has a feature so I can quickly write articles and they get directly uploaded to facebook and twitter so I can update my customers on pending snow storms (as they will want to know what the person that plows their driveway thinks the storm will do) and I post up seasonal tips reminding them of things they should call me to do, why they need to be done, ect.

    Facebook will never replace having a website but it can help you do some things easier.

    The OP needs to keep a running list of likes that need to happen

    In order for Facebook to recognize the likes you need to use your personal account. Likes from company pages don't register.

    Has anyone tried Facebook advertising for gaining local Facebook fans? I tried it once for another venture and had some success. I had a $50 ad campaign and saw my likes go up by 30, and "talking about" go from 12 to 45.
