by 32 comments
Hi,

I have a new FB fan page.. I want to make it VIRAL.

Its a lot of effort but I am up for it

I have tried the usual - inviting friends, posting on related groups etc.. but I just have 50 odd fans right now.. How do I take it to 10k ? or ..lets say 1k as a short term goal.

Which methods work for you ?

    If you can write niche articles in your blog, I believe you can make them 'like' you and they may be willing to be subscribed.

    Posting good tips/tricks
    link to your site
    then use "share to unlock content" plugin or something like that

    Hope it helps

    Yep it's always tough at the start.

    Get all your friends and business friends on there first.
    Then start liking a whole lot of pages that have your target market in them.
    Next start posting great content with "call to actions" of asking ppl to share and comment. Viral images and games are awesome as well.
    Now start becoming active on other pages as your page. meaning posting from being signed in as your page, not personal profile.
    Now i would do some ads and keep posting great content that will make people want to know more about your business and page. You can get $50 ad coupons for $5 from fiverr.com and you can get at least another 100-200 fans from that if you just make a basic ad of .."like" this page if you love.....
    Next you can partner up with other pages to cross promote. Ask them to give a post about your page to their fans and you will do it in return once your page grows.
    Then i would run a contest for massive traffic. Offerpop will do the job for free because your fans are so low.
    You would also want to collect emails and build your business list. Just put an opt-in in there and give something cool away for free. Then follow up in the emails selling them cool stuff they will love.
    Keep posting the viral images 3-5 times per day for 1-2 months and you will hit the 10k.

    Hope that helps

    Ads are the best methods. The best thing to do is to promote a status for a niche you are looking to target. So for me, since I'm IM. I always do a status like "Are you tired of your family and friends saying "No" to your opportunity. FREE Video reveals how you can discover the goldmine hidden in your Facebook timeline!" I'll insert my link in there a few times and insert a cool pic...and you will get likes! and possibly leads if you use a lead capture page before the free webinar/video you give out

    Fiverr has many cheap services for social media promotions.

    Contests, Sweepstakes, Deals .. anything with a 'like gate' , the trick is to run a small ad ($10 a day or so) that points to the tab that has the deal or contest on it. Make sure the tab is like gated. You can normally get around 70-90 real fans per day for your $10 and then when they enter your contest or deal or whatever you also get there email address. $10 for 70-90 real likes and around 40-50 email address's .. not to shabby:

      I wonder how I could apply that to a bodybuilding supplements related fan page.

    If you are willing to spend, Facebook Advertising is best.

    Buying likes from Fiverr will give the impression that your page is great, but it won't send it viral to be honest.

    You need a great hook and a great reason for people to share it around.

    How do you get REAL Facebook fans?

    Well, you give them something REAL to like.

    It's very rare that any type of paid promotion will bring you real fans. A real fan is someone who likes your page on their own accord without being paid to do so.

    AddMeFast is the largest like exchange. Hire a fiverr seller to get you points. 2000 likes will only cost a mere $5 and is good for real likes, although not many are active.

      Create the top quality and innovative business profile on the facebook. Share some wall paper, post video. Relevant posting and sharing will be more beneficial. So try to do the only unique work.

    Sorry to poop on everyone's party...

    But the question is what do you want to achieve here?

    Is it sales, authority, or both?

    I'd rather have 10 ravings fans than 1000 BS friends who don't even visit your page.

    Bottom line: if you want something to go viral then it has to be 10000% unique and atrractive to people.

    Just take a look in the real world at what goes viral on FB and YouTube.

    Hey There,

    Here's how I managed to get 10k+ fb fans in less than 4 months:

    1. post pictures related to your niche
    2. Comment at other related fan pages using your fanpage account
    3. Like the comments of fans from other fanpages related to your niche
    4. Use fb ads to add in real fans

    Facebook marketing is a in debth process. There are lots of ways and really they all work together. My best advice would be to find a training program that focuses just on facebook and how to use it. You will be creating pages and through your pages you can send your visitors to other places. There is a correct way and a wrong way to do this. You need to learn how to install Iframes and from those Iframes you can give people an action to take. If you need help in finding a decent training on facebook, send me a IM and I'll help point you in the right direction.

    Getting lots of fans doesn't happen overnight. Using social media it can take a while because you need to build trust first. Also you need to provide real strong value and present it in a manor others can relate too. By doing that you increase your chances for a post to go viral.

    Easiest types of FB pages to start are those that involve posting lots of funny / informative / cute / (insert more here) posts that people can relate to or want to show others so that it automatically snowballs, but that's if you want to run a site like 9gag, and best monetization for that is CPA / Adsense etc...

    You also have to be prepared to keep track of lots of other FB pages and 9gag type sites to find funny pictures and be on facebook adding them every 10-20 mins (at the beginning).

    I've never been good with any other type of page, even struggling with my review site. Plenty of retweets or pins, and even quite a few likes but I can't get the f*ckers to interact with me or each other

    Working on that!!
