Best way to get likes/followers on FB and instagram?

by Aart95 9 replies
I'm starting a new webshop selling accessories for drones and something I've never really looked into regarding marketing is social media

I figured facebook and instagram are quite popular and great for branding and showing off products, so these two are probably the best channels to start with, might look into youtube after some time as well.

So what are the best ways to get likes/followers (mainly in the beginning)? How did you do it?
Is paid social media advertising worth it?

    As a quick answer, yes, it's worth it.

    What I suggest you do in the beginning if your page is new is to:

    0. Learn who your audience is. Find other pages and perhaps groups that have interests related to you niche.

    1. Make some valuable posts on your page. Funny things always work best but they have to be likable, shareable, comment-able. The more stir you make, the better.

    2. Once you have 10-20 good posts you can do a campaign for Page likes. (you'll know where, Facebook is pushing these messages all the time on your Page if you're logged in as Admin or Owner)

    3. Start boosting your posts with small amounts ($1-2) and try and learn what your audience is keen on.

    4. Try to grow your page using great posts and the "Invite" function from those who liked your posts. (you simply click on the number of likes under each post - you have to be logged in as Admin or Owner).

    Here's an article showing it: Invite People Who Liked Your Post To Like Your Facebook Page | WeRSM | We Are Social Media

    5. The most powerful method I can think of, especially giving your niche is running a contest.

    You can grow a heck of a list by running a contest and you can market them for a long time.

    If you're interested in this, there are a few suggestions I can make further, you can send me a PM and I'll be happy to help.

    6. I don't recommend that you start monetizing your posts. Meaning no links to squeeze pages, sales pages and so on. Facebook is more and more against this and will kill your reach, even if the posts are great and you have tons of followers already.

    7. There are a few things I can suggest instead of putting sign-up/sales page links on your posts and I wrote a long reply on that here:

    Use beautiful pictures of your products to post on Facebook and Instagram. Share quality and engaging content, use videos to let others know about products.
    Write blogs and share on different social media to get more social signals.

  • Hi,

    I think facebook is a popular one considering your niche. It's because more people have FB accounts than they have instagram. I previously read a good thread here in WF which made a good conversion out of her FB ads. You will find this one very useful: http://www.warriorforum.com/social-m...in-1-week.html

    YouTube is also a great way to attract drone enthusiasts. Nowadays there is more content here on this niche than anywhere else. There are lots of owners who post their first flight, putting together a kit, and other similar things.

    Absolutely do video content with IG and link your youtube channel with your IG account, this way your IG would easily gives you lots of traffic to your youtube videos. If you've no experience with ranking a youtube video it'll be very tough for you.
