----> BUY THEM, its as simple as that. the best way to get "targeted,engaging fans" is to buy them via. fb ads.
If done right, you can get fans for a cheap as $0.01 per fan (I know this because I teach a course on facebook marketing).
As for the "contest" route, that is a horrible idea because for one, most likely they are not targeted fans and another thing is most fans that join a fan page via. a contest usually "UNLIKE" that page once the contest is over since they are not interested in the page, only what you were offering for free.
Also read the T & C of facebook and you will see that offering something for people to like your page can get you banned from facebook.
Lastly you should have some kind of a goal as to what you want to do/say to these fans once you have them. if you go and get say 500 fans but all you do is post your twitter post there or talk about how much money you can save them if they BUY from you or things like that, your page will be as dead as a door nail before you know what happen.
So the point is, you need to buy targeted fans and properly engage your fans (IMHO once or twice a day MAX) in order to get the results you want.
