I have a website "www.example.com" and a Facebook page for www.facebook.com/example/123456 My website need active users.

Now in my website I would like a like button, now the question is:
From a marketing point of view, where do I point my like to; to my website or to my Facebook page, having in mind that when a user likes your page any posts on that page gets shared on the user's wall, bringing more potential users.

  • Do you mean a facebook icon or graphic on your website and where to link it? Or the actual facebook like or share button they provide?

If your looking to gain users for your website then I would suggest having it like "www.example.com" rather than your Facebook page as this is where you want to drive people to.

How ever I also think a good idea would be to offer users an incentive to like your Facebook page such as "Like us on Facebook for 5% of all clothing", this means that people are also likely to like your Facebook page as there is an incentive. But first I would recommend getting people to share your website on Facebook, give it a bit of exposure and online presence.

I would assume the best option would be a facebook page. What reason is there to point it back to your website? A like button is always associated with facebook. Could you clarify your question please, and fix some of the grammatical errors ("...page for www.facebook.com/example/123456 my website need active users.") I would have said that as a comment, but I haven't built up the points too.
