Some good advice, and one horribly big no-no!
Number 7 is illegal on Facebook and can get you kicked off! NEVER try to trade something for likes. This is strictly forbidden, and if the author actually do the work he has listed in his little bio, he should know this.
This point alone is enough for me to never hire this person for any job that has to do with Facebook or social media. It is one of the most basic rules on Facebook.
You can not trade anything for likes. You can not have competitions like"like to win". You can never announce the winner on Facebook. All contests has to be held off Facebook, but you can make an app that will show this content on your page. But no sharing or liking as a requirement to participate in the contest.
Whenever anyone share a contest with me, I report it as spam and I recommend that everyone else will do the same.
So the advice should read: NEVER trade likes for any kind of gift or competition. You risk losing everything you have worked so hard to build.
DO hold competitions. They are popular, and WILL get you a lot of likes. Just make sure you follow the Facebook rules to the letter.

I really like your third point about commenting on other Facebook pages. I never thought about that as a way to increase impressions. Makes perfect sense though. Looks like I've got some work to do today. Great tips, thanks!
