How do I get more likes for my Facebook page? 

double your facebook likes Double Your Facebook Likes in 10 Minutes a Day [Infographic]This is a common refrain among brands looking to grow their Facebook presence. They know they should be in the space but they’re not sure whether it’s worth devoting the amount of time and energy required to grow their Facebook audience. For them, the potential for return on investment (ROI) is murky at best and not easily quantifiable.

The psychology of social media sharing

New York Times study found that:

  • 49% of social media users share content that allows them to inform others about things they care about and have the potential to change opinions or encourage action.
  • 68% of social media users share content so they can give their friends a better sense of who they are and what they care about.
  • 84% of social media users share content that allows them to support causes they care about.

The art and science of Facebook marketing can seem mysterious and daunting, and likes in and of themselves are not a magic bullet for increasing sales. But growing an audience of people who are interested in your products and offering them targeted, useful content on a regular basis should lead to improved Facebook Page engagement. Here are a few daily activities that can make a huge difference in the number of fans drawn to your page and how they engage and interact with your content. [Via]

7 ways to increase your Facebook likes in a few minutes a day

1. Make Facebook connections

  • Connect with Facebook admins who serve a similar demographic and develop a cross-promotion strategy.
  • Use Facebook’ native functionality to invite your email subscribers to like your page by providing incentives for them to do so. Facebook also has an email feature that enables you to engage those who don’t respond to your invitation and further entice them to connect.

2. Share content on your Facebook page

  • Share original content and compelling photos that are audience-appropriate to improve engagement.
  • Post frequently about newsworthy stories that are relevant to your readers.

3. Be active on Facebook

  • Comment on other pages where your target audience is already having conversations.
  • Share and tag your business page from your personal Facebook account.
  • If you host live events, post lots of photos and encourage your fans to tag themselves.
  • Offer your fans discounts or specials.

4. Link your Facebook page to Twitter

  • Link your Facebook page to your Twitter account so your Facebook posts will be automatically tweeted in 140 characters or less.
  • Remember that Twitter is completely different from Facebook and requires a different form of management.

5. Host a Facebook contest

  • Facebook contest apps are an inexpensive and easy way to have fun with promoting your products.
  • Most apps can be configured to require contestants to like your page before entering the contest.
  • The most popular prize categories for Facebook contests are travel, entertainment, music, technology, and fashion gifts.

6. Use Facebook advertising to your best advantage

  • Facebook’s targeting feature allows you to choose the demographic you want to reach.
  • Sponsored stories enable you to advertise your business’s page to friends of those who already like your page.
  • Upload your email subscriber list and include members in your advertising campaigns.
  • Split-test your ads because conversion rates can drop by 50% after the first 24 hours.

7. Promote your Facebook page online and offline

  • Display a sign in your store window encouraging customers to like your page.
  • Add links or info on your Facebook page to your other types of advertising.
  • Include your Facebook page address on all promotional materials, including your business cards.
  • Use your Facebook page info in all of your marketing materials — brochures, posters, media kits, collateral, and other promotional items.
  • Mention your Facebook page to people you meet and encourage them to like it.

These tips should go a long way toward growing your Facebook fan base!

    Adding content on the Facebook Page and regular updating it with fresh posts could be useful for increasing likes of the page. Regular updating can cause the more attraction of the users on Facebook.

    I swear! But yes following some of the tips consistently over a period of time could gain substantial followers provided the target audience is not too niche. It could be a good start though.

  • Feb 25 Posted 1 year ago Jason Perelson

    Yes, totally agree!

    I agree with the earlier comment that hootsuite is a great solution for cross channel communication

    Good points Jason - I would chime in here and recommend Hootsuite for managing / responding to updates cross channel.

    Really surprised that you're advocating linking FB to Twitter. That's what I'd call a "worst practice" and certainly isn't going to help anyone grow their FB audience. If anything, they'll probably lose Twitter followers.It would've also been a good idea to mention in the "Be Active" section to specify being active as the Page, not just a personal profile. Since this appears to be targeted to newbies, they may not realize that's what you meant...at least I hope that's what you meant.

    You mentioned the most general ways in an infografic which is nice. Infographic gets more attention than an article writing does. Infographic adds the interest and visualisation. Most of the points are already covereed by many, this article would be useful for the naives. Thanks for sharing.

    Overall it's very solid advice, although I don't believe that linking Twitter and Facebook for cross posts is a good idea. 

    The algorithms work in such a way that posts that are not directly from Facebook themselves, achieve a much lower reach than via apps like Hootsuite or linking accounts. Particularly with the changes that came around the end of 2013. 

    And when posting from Facebook to Twitter, the post are shortened with a fb. link which has no guarantee it will be shortened in the right place for a tease and it also looks unprofessional and discourages engagement. 

    While more work, it's far better IMHO to work on the individual profiles and sites the old fashioned way for best results - using all the other tips listed above.

    It's a decent summarization of the basics a community manager should do with their Facebook page, but I'll eat my hat if it's that easy to double a Facebook page's audience.
