$5 for Facebook likes worth it?

Is it worth $5 to get 3,000 facebook likes on Fiverr? how many of those likes are going to be quality likes? is it just for aesthetic value or can we market it somehow?

    They're not quality, just for aesthetic value...

    I took a Facebook ads class with Jennifer Sheehan and I believe it was her or someone else said to have at least 100 likes before placing the add... b/c of social proof. Of course, she didn't say to go on Fiverr to get them, but I thought I'd try it anyway...

    I tried it on a page to see whether they were quality or not. They're not, but does get you the social proof. After that, you have to use ads or marketing techniques to pull up the number for targeted traffic.

    Depends on how they deliver the likes but most likely they're 'fake'. Many of them will be real people but they're other internet marketers trying to increase their own likes as well. You'd have an incredibly hard time converting any of them.

    The only value in fake likes is 'aestehtic' like you said. It provides social proof so others (real people) will be more likely to like your page as well.

    Personally if I started a new fan page and had the option to pay $5 for 3,000 fake likes I'd take that offer. When you start actually promoting your page you'll get the ball rolling faster.

    Say for example you land on two Facebook fan pages, one has 5 likes and the other has 3,000. All things equal which would you be more likely to like? Because of social value and the psychology behind it you'd be skeptical of the page with only 5 likes and probably wouldn't like that page (unless there was a killer incentive). BTW if you already have a list or following, you have already established trust and value & the number won't matter as much.

    They are fake.

    Used for aesthetic value (as mentioned above) or to have enough likes to register a vanity url with facebook (e.g. facebook.com/makemoney).

    More than likely they are referring to likes to a certain url ( i.e. http://graph.facebook.com/http://warriorforum.com/ ) Not fan page likes. There is no real value except pure aesthetic. Typically when you like a page in this manor it will share the OG tags ( or Meta if no OG tags are present ) of a shared page to the wall of the facebook account that performed the like action, however with these cheap likes this is not the case. They are not real accounts, and simply are taking advantage of a glitch on fb.

      I believe it could never of quality. There are two reasons I considered why it's NOT:

      1. No Targeted Audience.
      The likes much like generated by any other means of bots or something..(maybe I'm talking nonesense but possible!)

      2. No Long Term Engagement!
      Being said that you have no quality targeted audience..and so they're no engagement will be happening.

      Dan Allard said it could be worthit for social proof..Yes true! but it could be obvious too that your wall would never have any content, comments, likes from those 3k fans you have on any of your wall posts. That could be the case if NOT :-)

      Option you might consider? Use facebook ads yourself using the Cost Per Impression not CPC on promoting your fanpage and make sure you consider at least 1.5% and above CTR and you'll surely have a targeted audience or FANS of 1K for just $20-$30!

      Cheers!

    Definitely not worth it.. I tried it.. they're fake profiles.. created by the same guy... that liked your page. Save your money... and build your fan page, and get likes like everyone else has to... if your page is interesting to other people, people will like your page and therefore you'll get the results you are looking for.

    It looks good but doesn't do much for you.

    You'll just be paying for the likes but it looks kind of suspicious when you have 3,000 like on your fan page and nobody's talking or posting on your wall. They probably won't even like your statuses so you'll more than likely be talking to yourself.

    It might help you get your foot in the door in the beginning but nothing beats the old fashion quality leads.

    It will give a "perception" that you have a popular page/topic. Those Likes will not engage or help you in any way.

    I'd do it only if you are embarking on a campaign (such as facebook ads) that will result in greater engagement on the page. It will be great social proof when visitors come and see that so many individuals have already liked the page, but if you aren't doing anything to promote it to real users the page will look dead.
