How I increased my Facebook likes, activity, and 51+ shares in 4 days (image included)

7 replies

This is a screenshot of my stats for my personal Facebook page. I have recently started to build my Facebook page and am working on increasing fans and activity. My goal is 10,000 likes on this page.

Here Is My Facebook Page

What I did to increase my activity so much and so fast was to host a giveaway. The current giveaway is my first of many and is for a $50 Amazon gift card. I require each participant to like my page, like the photo, share it, and comment. This spreads the word quickly about my page and the giveaway. People love things for free and it is definitely worth the small investment of $50. I have set the deadline for almost a month so it gives my page plenty of time to pick up traffic and likes within that time. So this sounds great and it is working, but I am sure you are wondering if I will get my money back.

The answer is yes, because my page not only provides interesting content, great photos, and discussions, but it also links to my blog and other products (when I promote them) which in return makes money. The best part is that all of the likes and traffic is 100% real and active, which is extremely important on Facebook and definitely pays off.

So in conclusion, the "hosting a contest or giveaway" option definitely works and I would suggest it if you can afford it. Make sure you have a game plan before you invest the time and money or else you will not make any return in your investment.

I hope this helps some of you out a little bit. Good luck and happy marketing!

Please let me know if you have questions on social media marketing.

PS: Please excuse any grammar/spelling errors. I am extremely exhausted but wanted to post this before sleep. Goodnight!

    I read somewhere that you must do giveaways through an application that Facebook approves of (can't remember the name), so that Facebook can verify the winner was chosen at random. I'm sure it's hidden away in the Terms & Conditions, although I'm not 100% positive.

    Just got back from a #BrightonSEO. I was given room 404 in the hotel I stayed at. Couldn’t find it anywhere!

      I never knew that changed policies for this and now that I have read it must be within an app for proof of a winner.....I don't know what to do. It's already received attention and people have liked. So I would have to delete the post and start all over with the new giveaway I guess...going to piss a lot of people off and make me seem unreliable. Well hmmmm

      Yeah I found that out recently myself. I don't really like that rule and the OP likely can get away with it. But running contests of any kind can get you in legal trouble so consult a lawyer if you want to be 100% safe.

      BTW I am curious how this goes for you Brian so i will try to check back in when Feb rolls around.

    Figured I'd jump in and share this with you as well as it's definitely against terms.

    I personally agree with the fact that they made it against the rules because of how scammy people are on Facebook for likes..

    E. Promotions
    If you use Facebook to communicate about or administer a promotion (such as a contest or sweepstakes), you are responsible for the lawful operation of that promotion, including the official rules, offer terms and eligibility requirements (e.g., age and residency restrictions), and compliance with regulations governing the promotion and all prizes offered in connection with the promotion (e.g., registration and obtaining necessary regulatory approvals). Please note that compliance with these guidelines does not constitute the lawfulness of a promotion. Promotions are subject to many regulations and if you are not certain that your promotion complies with applicable law, please consult with an expert.
    i. Promotions on Facebook must be administered within Apps on, either on a Canvas Page or a Page App.
    ii. Promotions on Facebook must include the following:
    a. A complete release of Facebook by each entrant or participant.
    b. Acknowledgment that the promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook.
    c. Disclosure that the participant is providing information to [disclose recipient(s) of information] and not to Facebook.
    iii. You must not condition registration or entry upon the user taking any action using any Facebook features or functionality other than liking a Page, checking in to a Place, or connecting to your app. For example, you must not condition registration or entry upon the user liking a Wall post, or commenting or uploading a photo on a Wall.
    iv. You must not use Facebook features or functionality as a promotion’s registration or entry mechanism. For example, the act of liking a Page or checking in to a Place cannot automatically register or enter a promotion participant.
    v. You must not use Facebook features or functionality, such as the Like button, as a voting mechanism for a promotion.
    vi. You must not notify winners through Facebook, such as through Facebook messages, chat, or posts on profiles (timelines) or Pages.
    vii. Definitions:
    a. By “administration” we mean the operation of any element of the promotion, such as collecting entries, conducting a drawing, judging entries, or notifying winners.
    b. By “communication” we mean promoting, advertising or referencing a promotion in any way on Facebook, e.g., in ads, on a Page, or in a Wall post.
