So far the strategy that helped increase my fans on Facebook is commenting and liking as my fan page. I go on other fan pages with lots of fans and which are relevant to my niche and interact there as my fan page. I leave comments and if people ask questions I try to reply myself if I know the subject. This way I can put my fan page in front of a lot of people.
