How I managed to get more than 2,000 FB fans in one day FOR FREE!

Profile picture of the author Deezign by
Hi guys,

Today I'd like to share how I managed to get more than 2,000 new fans to my FB page in one single day. I hope it will give you some ideas to develop yours

As you may know, people are sensible to incredible or "touching stories". These kind of posts are easily liked, shared, which gives you a lot of exposure.

So what I did was pretty simple: I browsed the web, looking for something really original and "touching" to share. I used Google image in order to find great images. It is really important to have nice pics because this is what will attract people.

Quickly, I managed to find a pretty nice story about the friendship of a man and a crocodile. I gathered couple of nice pics and put them together using Photoshop.

Then, I tried to find a nice article about this story in order to share it with the images.

Job done. I posted the story on my page and other big pages. Booom! The image went viral and got shared by more than 11,500 people. It resulted in attracting more than 2K new fans to my page IN ONE DAY.

Here is the image/story I am talking about (you might have already seen it): Amazing Story

This kind of success can be easily duplicated. It only requires spending some time to find something original and gathering great photos. My page now has around 65K fans and keep growing.

I hope you enjoyed my share and found it useful and motivating

Keep up the great work guys!

Ben

UPDATE

----------------------------------------------------------------------

YOUR PAGE:

1) Create your page and add a nice/professional timeline banner and avatar (this is really important to "stand out").

2) Then, start adding a lot of high quality contents to your page. Why? Simply because this is how you create value. As you may know, people will "like" your Facebook page only if they find value in it. Having great contents is definitely the way to do it.

3) Diversify your posts. For example, I will share a beautiful photo of Italy. Then, my next share will be (for example) a funny picture where I ask my fans to find a great caption for it. This is a great way to keep your community active. I can then share some great news related to nature ("Algae lamps may soon light up in streets!"...).

---------------------------------------------------

OTHER PAGES

Now it is time to get more exposure by posting your best photos on other big/small pages.

4) Use the Facebook Search bar to find similar pages (in the same niche). Giving that your page is brand new, don't focus only on "big pages". Smaller ones with couple of thousands fans will be easier to convince. Make sure that these pages are active and that their fans correspond to your targeted audience. Check the likes and the comments. If you see that most of them are from Asian people, you may want to choose another page. Then, make a list of all the pages you've found and keep it preciously.

5) Now, start posting your best photos on these pages. Don't spam them. Post only high quality things. The idea here is not only to use these pages to develop yours, it is also to bring value to them.

6) Don't hesitate to send a message to the admins of these pages. Not to ask them to share your page, but to tell them that you love their page(s) and appreciate all the shares. In this way, you will motivate them and admins will start to notice you.

7) When you share a post on other pages, don't forget to "tag" your page in it. To do it, simply use "@" and start typing the name of your page. In my case, I need to write @Amazing World. When you start typing the name of your page, a drop down menu will be displayed, allowing you to choose your FB page (or another one). Then you can do something like:

Join our Page -► @YOUR PAGE HERE ◄- For more amazing photos!

8) After couple of weeks, you can finally start contacting FB page admins and ask them to share your page. I usually send the following message:

"Hey there,

Once again I'd like to congratulate you for your wonderful page. I really enjoy all of your posts and can't stop myself from coming back to your page. As you may have seen, I am pretty active on your page and always try to post high quality photos that will bring value to it.

Couple of weeks ago, I have created my own Facebook page: YOUR PAGE HERE and have been trying to develop it since. I would be really thankful if you could share one of my photos to your fans and invite them to visit my page. This would really encourage me to be even more active!

I hope you will have the time to read my message. Anyway, are doing an amazing work! Keep it up!

Kindest Regards,

Amazing World"


It has been working pretty well for me so far. If you follow all these steps, you will definitely be able to develop your fan base.

Cheers!

    That is an awesome page. I liked it just because I thought it looked great, amazing photos on there.

    How do you monetize it? Or do you?

    Thank you for your kind words Shawnskee. I haven't really started to monetize it yet. I am waiting until reaching 100K fans. Then I will start creating a photography website, allowing people and photographers to share their own photos. I will be able to sell advertising spots on the site (to photographers) and include a "shop" section with products/affiliate offers related to photography.

    I am also planning to add a "photographers" section listing some of the most talented photographers. In order to be listed in this section, photographers will be able to pay me to add their bio and site. I will also run some "Photographer of the week" campaigns on the site and on my FB page. During these campaigns, I will share one photo of the chosen photographer, everyday during one week. Each photo will be shared with the photographer details and website. When these campaigns will start to become more famous, I guess photographers will contact me to know how they can be part of it. I can then start to monetize these campaigns as well

    Currently photographers are paying me to promote their photos (and sites) on my page. I also use the page to generate couple of sales with some of my brand new sites (selling digital services) and then sell them on Flippa (which is working pretty well so far).

    Those fans won't be targeted and therefore close to worthless.

    Worthless? Actually they helped me to make more than $10K in one month... Moreover, my page is about photography and this strategy is helping me to attract tons of photographers. So I wouldn't say "worthless"...

    It's all about the pics and stories you choose. If you have a page related to dogs, find a nice story about dogs. If you have a page related to new technologies, find an incredible story about a new invention...

    Great idea! I have some facebook pages and this just gave me some ideas of I could do with them.
    thanks!
  • Profile picture of the author Deezign
    In my opinion, one of the best strategy on Facebook is to develop a FB page based on a general niche. Then, thanks to this page, you will be able to lead your fans into a more specific (and targeted) niche page.

    Let's suppose that my niche is about dog's training. This niche is definitely specific and because of this, it won't be really easy to attract a lot of fans.

    However, the idea would be to create (first) a "general" fan page about a topic including your niche. For example, I would create a page about "dogs", sharing only great quality contents (dog photos, articles, videos and so on). Why dogs? Simply because my niche (dog's training) is included inside Usually, people who are interested in "dog's training" are people who actually love dogs (and have one).

    Then I will try to develop this first page about dogs. It shouldn't be too difficult if you focus on sharing high-quality content. Once you've attracted a lot of fans, you can then create another fan page about your specific niche (dog's training) and share posts on your first big page.

    Why is it a good thing? Simply because you will be able to communicate among a big audience. A lot of people who love "dogs" have a dog, so it will be easier to attract them on your "niche" page.

    The good thing is, given that your first page is "general", you can then use it to attract fans to some of your other niche pages (animal protection, dog and cat products….).


    PS: Glad it gives you some new ideas Winagain

    This is a terrible strategy that will result in a ton of wasted time and resources. Just target people to a dog training page to begin with via FB ads and save yourself a ton of time and money. I can't remember the last time I spent over 4 cents for targeted fans to a FB page via ads.

    Actually, I think you don't really get it. Of course anyone can use FB ads (even I do it). Using FB ads shouldn't be your only strategy. It should be combined to other things. The main point in developing a "general page" is that you can then use your audience to create and develop a lot of other niche pages (and it will be done really fast). This is a strategy that different top marketers are using and that it is also used by communication agencies for community management purposes.

    I posted a photo which was shared around 900 times and had 45k + views and didn't really see any new likes? Did I do something wrong?

    Pretty strange... Did you invite people to like your page? When I share a photo, I usually use the following structure:

    Title (title of the pic - should be catchy)

    Invitation to join my page: "Join our Page -► YOUR PAGE ◄- For more amazing photos!"

    Description (description of the pic)

    Credits (Source, Photographer's name & website - when I can find them)

    Hi Kyle,

    Thank you for your kind words. The first step was adding a lot of great photos to my page (because an empty page isn't really attractive). I wanted to have something to show to people. This is why I spent time collecting only the best photos I could find online (using websites such as Flickr, 500px, Earth Shots, National Geographic...).

    Then, I started to share my best photos on other big pages (to get more exposure). Admins of these pages started to appreciate my shares (because I wasn't spamming their pages, only sharing high quality pics/info). They started to share my posts and give credits to my page. This helped me a lot to develop my fan base.

    I also used Facebook ads (which worked pretty well too).

    No problem! Thanks for the share. So you were sharing on other pages as the fan page? I am going to give it a try.

    How long has your page been around?

    Cool cool :p
