Hi samstoneinc,

Thanks for sharing! It's very creative in driving home the point that you need to engage users by sharing valuable content. Just like the cartoon you shared with us. It is creative and informative. This will earn more likes than asking an acquaintance to like your page. :)

Have a good day!

The Oatmeal is great!

Seriously, to get likes, it's more about building others up, than bragging about yourself.

Hi samstoneinc,

Great share :)

Just a thought: Quantity is not really something to focus on but it would be better to get "real" likes from people who are interested on what you market :)

Success is not determined by numbers but by the way you target your visitors.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the oatmeal link. Very cool post and it has more than 100K Likes! I gave up on Facebook as a traffic getter. It is just too time consuming for me.

I did get a lot of traffic when I was on Networked blogs, but then I started noticing that my Networked blog was stealing traffic from site because it was showing up first in the SERPs!

Hi salonhaircare,

They can help you get more Facebook likes. Having a lot of Facebook Likes makes your site look as if a lot of people like the content on it, but t that does not necessarily translate to more sales. You would still need to convince users to buy from you once they are on your site, and one of the ways to do that is through good content.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

Thanks samstoneinc,
I've created a facebook fanpage 3-months ago, and still only have three likes.
I was confused at what was really the problem, as far as getting more likes.
Now I understand that my content is the problem. I need to make my content more eye-catching and enjoyable.

Thanks Again!

Hi mjcreek57,

Try to post good graphics on your FB page as well as try to post call to action words for your subscribers, in a way that they can entice their friends to like your page as well. :)

If you want to get more Facebook likes try a giveaway . I've seen this a lot on Facebook. You say something like "Free eBook to the 1000th person to like my page" or something like t hat. Namecheap does something like this where their registration would cost something like a dollar for the next 24hours, but you need to like their page to qualify.

It's a little gimmick to get people to like your page, and while it can cost your a bit, it works! (beause I've liked several pages I usually wouldn't just so I can get a prize. LOL) I think that's better than paying some company to give you 10,000 likes.

Hope t hat helps. Have a good day!

I believe quality audience is so much better than quantity. There's really no point in having 10000 followers when only less than 1% of that are active. I think it's always best to grow your FB page organically than "buy" followers.

When starting a page, I pay for ads to target quality audience. For example, if my product is for moms, then I set my ad to my specific target audience. FB ads system is pretty effective for me.

You have three options as to when to end your ad campaign:-
1. When you've acquired a good amount of followers, depending on your target
2. When you've consumed all your ad budget
3. When the ad duration you've set for yourself is finished

I usually decide between options 2 or 3. My FB PPC budget starts at $100 and normally,I give it 2-3 months duration. Again, everything depends on your target market - location, gender, age, interests, etc.

All your posts should be relevant to what your FB page is all about. If your page is about moms, then post something that moms would like or want - practical information such as summer first aid tips, new parenting studies, etc - but me more specific also. Engage your followers by asking them questions, opinions, or post a topic that would encourage your followers to discuss.

Bottomline is, the quality of your posts will be the one that will drive interaction and reach of your page. Start off with targeting quality audience, then maintain the account by posting quality information. Your quality audience would do the rest by liking, commenting and sharing your posts.

Hope this helps. :)

P.S. As for posts on personal accounts - just be yourself.
