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

by 136 comments
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).

    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….).

      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.

      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).

    If you're earning up to $15k a month you're definitely doing something right - I wish the rubbish in my bin was worth 15k

    How are you earning that much money btw, if it's shareable?

    I loved your story anyway and I gave it a like - but must say "either that guy is crazy or the Croc must be gay" - only kidding.

    I definitely think your method is very effective. I shall emulate it soon

      Deezign,

      Thank you for sharing. you are not the first person I've heard doing this. The guy I heard do this was making quite an amount of dough too. He did use the images to drive traffic to his website though. And I like the idea of the content of the pic to drive a targeted audience. Don't see this as rubish or worthless at all.

    I am interesting in your methods to post your story on other big pages ,
    Can you tell more details about it?

      Sure. To give you a concrete example, I managed to find several big pages that are giving credits to other pages (when they post something nice on their wall). One of these pages is: https://www.facebook.com/someamazingfacts

      Now, imagine that the post that went viral on my page is now being shared by another big page (where the admin gives credits to my own page and invites his fans to check and "like" my page). Can you see how powerful it is?

      The hardest part is to find big and active pages that are used to sharing other people posts (and giving them credits)

    This is the secret of getting legit like quickly. Thanks for sharing this method man. Some seasonal images also do well with this method.
  • Profile picture of the author AffiliateFive
    I have done something very similar using only photos. A great way to attract traffic to your page and to your site. You can even increase the likes of this method by liking peoples comments on the picture.

    Don't go to crazy on this, but like the comments that are worthy. The person that made the comment will get notified that you liked their comment which will hopefully attract them back to the page and like it.

    There is HUGE potential in a method like the one described. Nice work Deezign!
