Benefit of lot's of Facebook "Likes"?

by 512 Designs 35 replies
Can someone tell me the benefit of having a lot of people "Like" your facebook fan page? When someone presses "Like" on a fanpage, does that make them a friend or something? Increase some search ranking somewhere? What?

Sorry but I only have a personal facebook page and I still don't understand the whole facination about it. But I guess I gotta learn.

    It puts them on your Facebook list, somewhat similar to an email list. Whenever you post an update, they ( and all their friends that visit their wall ) see what you posted.

    I think Facebook goes a little "overboard" with the privacy stuff, but it works out for marketers!

    Alot of people use Facebook over myspace nowadays and it's just a great venue to promote your products and services to people who know you and like you. The quality of the traffic that you get from facebook may be questionable, but in the end it's all designed to boost your traffic and sales.

    I feel like it acts as "Facebook SEO" as well. I find it hard to believe that not many people have mentioned this anywhere, but if you search for "Car repair", the first pages that show up are the ones with most likes afaik.

    That is why I am a firm believer in getting "fake" likes to get a page started. It adds credibility to the page. No one wants to go to an empty restaurant, because it look suspicious.

    ONCE UPON A TIME there was a Warrior named Bob. He was sad. And frustrated. You see, Warrior Bob spent every last nickel on Internet Marketing e-books. But nothing panned out. No traffic. No sales. He was one sad Bob. Then one day Bob found a bottle. He rubbed it and out came a Genie who granted him 3 wishes. For Wish #1 Bob asked for a pet Dragon. Wish Granted. For Wish #2, Bob wanted Warriors' websites seen by 53 million TV viewers, for under $5 per broadcast. The Genie said... (click here)

    As simple as "liking" in Facebook seems, it's all the free advertisement that you get with each likes you get. When someone likes your fan page, it'll appear on their wall and his / her friends get to see it as well. And if others get interested, the chain of hassle-free exposure continues on its own.
