Here are a few qualities that are crucial to succeeding with a Facebook Page along with resources to help you improve in those areas:
As social media is changing the way we do everything, a successful Facebook Page owner is eager to dive in and stay up-to-date. Develop a sense of curiosity and immerse yourself in the Facebook platform. Keep up with the newest features and experiment with new strategies on your Page.
Know what’s trending and apply it to your Page. Right now, video and live broadcasting are especially hot on Facebook. Get curious and see how your Page fans react to your live video.

A successful Facebook Page owner knows that millions of fans don’t come to your Page overnight. It takes consistent posting, daily management, and constant customer service to build relationships on social media.
Many people want to give up after a week because their posts aren’t going viral. If they do give up, they’ll never see a post reach that kind of success. If they stick with it and put in the work, it’s only a matter of time before their Page takes off.

Patience goes hand-in-hand with persistence. Some metrics – like brand awareness, customer retention, even ROI – may not pay off right away. Getting frustrated and giving in to publishing overly promotional posts will only prolong your Facebook Page success.
Instead, persistently work at creating relationships by adding value. Educate, entertain and inform your fans to help them develop trust in you.
