    These are excellent tips which I use myself on my Linen websites. Thanks for the link… FB is definitely the way to go. I have competitions on my websites that get people to like my page and then they stand a chance to win vouchers etc.

    Also very important… To stay by your word and actually give out rewards…show the customers who won the voucher etc.. I.e. Past winners… post them on your FaceBook Fanpage.
