What I see happen is that smaller businesses with fewer 'likes' get better engagement because they connect with people at a personal level. One of my clients runs a small retail store and has about 250 likes, about half of those people engage on her Facebook page every week. Especially in times like this with a poor economy, many people are driven to support local businesses with a personal connection. The large brands poor tons of money into advertising and might get a like because of a funny or creative ad, then the user forgets about them and moves on.
Good point Avi, there are many apps like the one you are suggesting that will let you create a mini website from within Facebook. You can also use these apps to simply link to particular pages of your site if you don't want to include everything. I always find it best to make your Facebook presense unique from your website so that it has its own place.
