I have one, I post to it a couple times a week.  Articles and listing stuff.  I'm not worried about traffic or likes to it, they happen.  The more likes you have the more interaction you need.  Facebook will penalize you for having lots of followers and little or no interaction.

Yes, I use mine. Post information others appreciate, benefit from, or find interesting. Be consistent with your postings and always engage with your readers. It will take time so be patient. You can also join FB groups to gain more exposure and you can always run boosts/ads to generate even more interest.

When I am looking for advice on improving my Facebook business page, I always turn to Anita Clark , she is certainly the Queen!  I will from time to time post something on my regular Facebook page to entice more people to follow my business page, but I usually try to keep them separate.

I have a facebook busines page too, with over 12,500 likes.  I rarely post anything business related... I post things of interest to others, and since I am in real estate I often post photos of some gorgeous homes. I sometimes will post a Blog I have written that might be of intereset to Buyers or Sellers... something about the real estate industry.  It very important to engage with your followers..  and when you post something.. ask a question to try and engage with them.  Be consistent you can schedule your posts ahed of time for the entire week.  I have been a little off track lately, but I used to post consistently 3 x per day...

Yes. I don't focus on " likes". If people like what they see, and want to see more, they'll "like" it. I just liked a photographers page because he talks about  things i'm interested in. (cameras, lenses, pricing , he posts lots of nice photos, info on workshops, etc) He didn't ask me to like his page.

 I just boosted a post that supposdely reached 1900+ people. cost me $20.00 for the week. One person " liked" my page. On another boost I paid $5.00 for, I got 3 " likes"

boosted post

Yes, we use our FB biz page. You have to have a FB biz page in order to run FB ads. So that is a given. 

TO get more likes to your page- run a $2 per day like campaign. 

That is the best and easiest way to build your following but you must already have good content people will resonate with before you do a like campaign.
