Hi,

I have set up several FB fanpages, can anyone recommend me ways to increase my fans from scratch? I have been told about the following method:

1. Outsource fans ( buy fans and followers ): any recommended services?

2. Learn from the gurus: any recommended FB training course, package, book to buy?

3. Buy Facebook ADs

Any suggestions?

Thank you

    If you're looking to monetize your Facebook fan page, then I'd avoid "outsourced fans" like the plague.

    Use Facebook ads, and other promotions that grow it organically...

      I'm experimenting with ads and I have to admit, i'm not sure what to make of them. I'm getting likes (obviously) but in terms of relevency, it's a bit hit and miss.

    Buy Facebook ads or post interesting topics daily at least 3-4 on your page..Make some of your close friends, the admin of your page and tell them to invite their friends or share your post. Like similar pages and comment on their post as your page..Give your page an interesting title, so that it attracts people.

    I suggest everyone to avoid buying so called "Facebook Likes" as these likes are of no use and facebook might delete the page in future.

    The best way without doubt is advertising via facebook ads, make some engaging stories or pictures that might go viral.

      Instead of company you work for put the name of your fan page, instead of position put your catch with call to action like "Join me on ...about your page..." so you will have "Join me...about your page..." at "your page name". For example ''Jump on board and boost your list today FREE at List Building Team". So now it's visible to everyone who visits your profile. Then, do some research and find out a number of popular highly trafficked blogs in your niche with Facebook comments enabled. Make meaningful comments to stand out of the crowd. Your ad "Join me...about your page..." at "your page name" will be in comments below popular articles and videos. See to it your comments don't go to you on Facebook. Try to be among the first who comment on these blogs, subscribe to their feeds to be notified as soon as a new posts go live there and hurry.

    A Big No to buy fans as it won't bring you anything.

    Do follow the advice above by other fellow warriors and also prepare your page for SEO as well, that will bring lots of fans in organic way.

      What do you mean by SEO?Ranking on Google or ranking on Facebook?Will it be an effect if you rank high on facebook for your term?What are facebook ranking factors?I think Likes is the most important, but what else?Regular posting, backlinks or so on.

      What about ranking facebook pages on Google.I've seen many of them ... More tips here?

      Any tool that will help me see the numbers of searches for any keywords on facebook?

    Try using facebook ads. You can also boost a single post. They are very good at targetting the right people. Also you can join similar groups and interact there. Make lot of friends, Invite them to like your page. The process may be bit slow but will be useful later.

    Start by posting content regularly- nobody's going to Like a Page that seems to be dead or bare. Make sure the content is useful and relevant to your target audience. Link to the Page on your blog and other channels- tweet about it, put it in your signature of your emails when you engage people... go out and talk to people!

    Buying Likes will get you nowhere. It will actually ruin the page because you dont have engaged Fans -- all of the Likes were basically from fake Facebook accounts.

    Run ads to get more Likes &Fans. Create posts that inspire people to SHARE your content. Use eye-catching images.

    competitions and paid ads are the easiest/quickest way. Don't expect to get much of a return but this is how 99% of other companies do it.

    I agree with Baba Pandey... never buy likes on sites like Fiverr.

    All fake (no matter what they say) and will only end up killing your page Edgerank.

    Try to post on regular basis and always your post will be interesting and catchy so that visitor get interest about your topic. Other thing is that you can link your fan page with other social networking site like twitter, pinterest, google+ from where you can get extra fan.

    Hi jay,

    Bringing traffic to a new page can always be a hard task. If you're not getting 20-30 fans within the first few days then you are doing something wrong. It really depends on what niche you are in as to where you should be getting your fans from.

    Unfortunately purchasing likes from sites like fiverr etc are most likely fake numbers that provide no benefit. Your best bet is to stick with one page that you really have a passion in and provide great comments on similar niches as your page ( not your profile) without promoting yourself directly. For the beginning stages you just want to establish your pages theme and create character. I know the importance of targeted traffic and SEO but sometimes you can look past it and provide really insightful comments that actually help people. Quality of content in regard to how someone can learn something or get a sense friendship can be highly beneficial.

    My current methods of obtaining fans are to offer alternative skills in regards to free promotions from bigger pages. For example I would make a blog or site for a huge page in return for regular shares. In the end of the day you can always message larger fb pages and ask for a month of advertising but be sure to discuss all this via emails as fb terms don't allow this.

    I hope this helps.

      Well here is one really good piece of advice. There are two posts above mine here. They are just junk posts full of junk links. This is spam and I am sure they will be deleted very soon. You don't want to just try and sell stuff and spam you own FB page.

      Like a few people already said... its better to try and engage your audience BUT have you ever went to a FB page and saw 0 likes 0 visitors? People are just like that. It is hard for a lot of people to be the first or find value in what is not already LIKED. It is a catch 22. This is where a FEW paid likes can be of use. This is the only reason I can see for them..... it just gets the ball rolling so to say. Obviously the goal might be sales so just make it all look professional and clean and start split testing a few paid ads for sales. Hope this helps.

    I have started a Social Media Marketing course by Jo Barnes, she's amazing and she has written a Free 93 page ebook on how to market your business on Facebook and truly take it to the next level in 2013.
    There are a few links in it taking you to her paid courses but they don't detract or spoil the free content in any way.

    No quick fixes. As others have said, avoid buying fans. Not only are they fake and not genuine, but social media sites are getting better and better at spotting fake fans - same goes for Twitter.

    It's about hard work. Being sociable, learning how to promote good content that people want to read and networking. Things build slowly and word spreads about your products and pages.

    I believe that facebook ads will be much better than buying facebook likes/followers. Those facebook followers you buy are all fake, but facebook ads will bring real people to your page.

    Im looking to manage some pages for around 100 a month, adding content at peak times, finding other groups, and pages to like. Generally for small business's, nothing to special. Basically Id be your offsite page manager. Adding different content, funny, informative, promotional, good story. So this way the audience doesn't feel intruded. Its kind of what Ive noticed works best for the motorcycle shop I work at. Start to get some regular posters, and people who like the status's. Got a few people who share the status's. Its pretty cool when they do... Means your doing something right.

      I think the first step like what others said is putting quality and attractive posts and photos in your FB page. Someone who just found your post interesting will be very eager to share it to others.

    From facebook you can get good traffic. You need to regularly post in your fanpage and develop good friends in your network, and keep engage your fans with regular posts,events which will increase your fans and in turn more likes.
    Facebook ads is another way to promote your page.
