How can I get more likes on my facebook page?
People in the market charge money to give likes on your facebook page. Is that method is ok to do or is it illegal? Are there other methods that I can use to start building likes on my facebook page?
You should NEVER buy FB likes. It is very simple. First start with family and friends, as well as having them encourage "likes". You can also promote on FB and post information that people will want to hear about regularly. Also you can offer consumers exclusive deals when they like you on FB.
Hello, no paying for likes, only by Facebook's own target group marketing. Pay attention to your page's freshness and interesting content. Post regularly and ask your audience to take part in discussion and ask for their opinions. Your page will get likes automatically. It might be slower but it is sure.
You have received great advice! I would definitely be looking at those Gary Vaynerchuk videos as he gives great advice about marketing.
I almost feel like a broken record, but before I ad anything else, do you know who your ideal customer is? If you have not determined that yet, I believe that has to be first. Is Facebook the platform your customer would be on? I know it is the most used, but if that is not where your customer is, what good is it doing YOU?
Next make sure on your personal page you have a link to your blog where you are going to capture that email. If you are not there yet, you can give your fan page. That is prime real estate. Make sure you are using the same photo on all your platforms.
Next, go to interest groups and pick about 5 people a day and connect with them as friends, not as customers. Social media means be social. If you start by giving your web site, you will actually be spamming. That gives you a good start! Any questions feel free to contact me.
Best way to build likes is to give massive value in your posts.
Man, I love this question since there are so many answers.
This is an interesting topic to me because of Facebook's place in the world. There's a huge rift between what people want Facebook to be and what it started out as, and the beast it is now. While social media has become an awesome way to connect with your shoppers/customers, and gives them much more faith in you as a business, most people on Facebook just want to see their friends, not your deals.
You asked how to get more likes- First, ask yourself this. Why on earth would you "like" a business? Do you have some kind of connection to it? You just bought something from them that's usually the end of it.. now you expect someone to pretend to be the business's friend and want to establish some kind of ongoing relationship?
Yep! Lets jam.
1. Make it known on your site that you have a community of people (or that you're building one), and invite them to be a part of it. People love being a part of something, and depending on the invitation, it's hard to turn one down that makes you feel special.
2. Content is and always will be King. Make sure what you're posting isn't just a promotion or a sale, and make it obvious that you're not doing Facebook to get more sales. Don't get the wrong idea, you might be, but Facebook is SOCIAL channel. It makes people feel good, and it makes your business a person. Would you be friends with a person that just tried to get you to buy their stuff every time you hung out? (The answer is no.)
3. Sales, and promotions are cool and all, and may be enticing, but you can do that through newsletters. Definitely use the space for some every now and then, but keep them sparse.
4. Get people excited! Ask questions, let people share their experiences or thoughts! Create a hub of information, and let your shoppers be experts!
5. Show humanity! Checkout the Facebook page for Revzilla.com (https://www.facebook.com/revzilla) thes guys rule. I don't even ride motorbikes or ATVs and I want to be a part of this page. I check it constantly because of how AWESOME they are. They have fun! You see the people behind the curtain! You hear their opinions! Stories! News! Games! Every time I'm on this page, I feel like I'm in a room at a party and I'm people watching because there's so much happening. This is TRULY a hub for people excited about Motorcycles, Biking, etc.
6 NEVER EVER EVER EVER NEVER EVER NEVER (Seriously, don't) buy visibility, and here's an awesome video to show you why!
Veritasium is a YouTube channel that usually dives into science and physics, but he did an awesome job breaking down and exposing a tremendous issue that Facebook is constantly fighting regarding "Like farms".
If you want some really awesome advice and insight, check out Gary Vaynerchuck (Link: https://www.youtube.com/user/GaryVaynerchuk). He reminds me of a small Joe Pesci, and I love everything I've ever heard come tumbling out of his foul mouth. He's one of the most intelligent people I've gotten to listen to speak regarding social media and he has amazing points on how to use it, what to expect, and the mindset you should have while building your followers.
Hope this helped!!
Hey Anchor, promoting your page via a Facebook "likes" campaign is definitely an available option to get more likes in a short amount of time. We see this request from brands who've yet to promote their page and who are looking to explore Facebook advertising as a means to acquire new customers for their business. BUT...I'm a big fan of growing likes to page organically. You'll notice that pages grown organically will have much more interaction and engagement with each post. Create an editorial calendar for your FB Page and treat it like you would your blog or any other account you are publishing content (i.e. Linkedin like Giselle mentions below). When creating your FB Editorial Calendar think about topics, subjects, etc.. that your target audience / ideal client profile will be interested in...and it doesn't have to be 100% business. Be as personal with your FB Brand as your business allows. People want to do business with people and they want to interact with brands who "get them". And have fun with it!! Some of the best FB Pages (B2B or B2C) I've ever seen are the ones ran by people who love what they do.
you can get 500 likes to your page on fiverr, but will it really help your business? You want people who are potentially interested in your products to like your page (not just anybody).
I am guessing you already invited all your FB friends to like your page. A couple of ideas are to ask colleagues and friends to invite THEIR contacts to like your page. Also, offer an incentive for people to like your page. Run a contest or do a giveaway on your page. Join FB pages similar to yours or are complementary to your business and continue to ask these new contacts. It will take time but it will be worth it in the long run. Good luck!
Whatever you do, don't buy likes! In the end it will do you far more harm then good. When you use a Fiverr gig or something similar to buy FB likes, you are almost always getting likes from fake accounts which means that you will never get engagement which means FB will think your content is not valuable and will lower your reach.
Now a like ad through FB is a paid measure, but much different and a much better way to build your audience. You can target your ideal client and can reach people who want to hear what you have to say.
Of course, the absolute best and FREE way to build your audience is to share valuable content. Remember that social media is about offering value- through entertainment, education, inspiration or support. Become a part of groups that you have like interests with and share and contribute. Organically, you will build your own audience if you are giving far more than you are asking.
I believe the days of buying "likes" are over. If you can still buy them, there many reasons that someone would. The first reason is that the majority of people are externally framed meaning that it is very important what others think. So for most people, if they see a lot of likes on a page, they assume that it is worth while and they are more likely to follow as well. You know, like lemmings. In marketing, perception is everything. Although not very ethical, this strategy has been used to grow many platforms at a much faster rate. If you have a message to an unsophisticated crowd, this strategy does work. If facebook realizes that the likes are bought, you will get busted and possibly banned. As for ethical methods...There are many that been addressed here so I won't go into them. One thing that is important to note though is that it is not your list on facebook...it is facebooks list that you think is yours. Although you may feel special that you have a large following on facebook, the money comes when you can capture their email and information for your own list. This is the only way you can control your list and market directly to them.
