Leigh Kostianen, the star behind the Promote My Fan Page Facebook page, organised a contest for Facebook fan pages. First everyone could nominate the pages they liked best. Then everyone could vote for the 13 finalists, these pages got the most recommendations. Next to the voting there is also a group of experts that Leigh brought together to review the finalists.
Promote My Fan Page every day of the week there are actions to promote your or a Facebook page. There is Megaphone Monday, Tagging Tuesday, Work Swap Wednesday, Thirfty Thursday and Friendly Friday. Head on over and promote your page.
Reviewing these 13 finalists and a short review for a subset of all the nominees was very fun to do. As reviewer you get a chance to see very different pages, in design, attention, and interaction.
Most of the finalists had a good amount of Likes on their page, +1,000. The top pages really went into the battle in getting as many votes from their fans as they could. An occasional sarcastic comment on the wall of these pages show that the finalists took the award very seriously.
I believe that all 13 finalists are winners because of the amount of traffic they generated for themselves. Fans wrote updates on their wall trying to get their friends to vote for a page. Most of the finalists gained new Likes because of the contest.
The Promote My Page page gained 3.000 ! Likes during the contest and passed the 10.000 ‘likes’ mark. Way to go Leigh. Very good idea such an award. 🙂

And these are some of my favorites that did not make it to the finals.
At this moment I can not share what my favorite finalist is. We are waiting for the results from Lee and a report that includes the finalists, all the nominees and the reviews.
Will update the post when the results are published by Leigh.
What is your favorite from the 13 finalists?
