I bought a program on getting penny likes on fb.

I couldn't get nearly that cost on my likes and asked the program creator if he set up campaigns for people. He said no.

Is this something that someone does? I'm curious if there are fb smarty-pants that set up campaigns for others?

    Hi Ty,

    Hmmm.....buying Likes - even for a penny - might seem like a solid idea, but you want to think end game. If people are working for a penny, to get a Like, can they afford the product or service you have to offer? Probably not.

    I'd go with the organic approach of Liking pages of industry leads, commenting on their status updates, blogging, making friends.....because even though the Likes can give you social proof, these penny Likes will be dead wood, and will do nothing to grow your actual business in the long run.

    All the best!

      I'm talking about advertising and getting likes for a penny.

      I'm not talking about signing up fake accounts to like my page.

    I dont understand fb, I advertised fan page to kill 2 birds with 1 stone and hopefully gain a like and a visit to my site at same time......I set cpc to 0.11 but when you get a click they charge you over 1 dollar. Its not worth it to me, I would rather gain them other ways.

    I believe there was a guy who was selling his serices for Likes, etc... try checking the WSO section.

    Also, penny likes are ok... but what exactly is your goal with it? Is it just to build up Likes? Or do you have a specific monetization method?

    My advice is to never start a campaign for the sole purpose of just getting likes... for me, I go for clicks and conversions... it's the thing that pays the bills : )

    Some things I have found while marketing on Facebook:

    1- To get penny likes - $.01-.03 you need to target the less competitive regions. So basically not the US but other english speaking countries as well as other random countries and specify English.

    *Something to note with this method: the engagement is generally not that great
    and the quality of those likes is minimal. However, it gives you some credibility
    as you can get thousands of likes for very cheap.

    2- Another thing to consider- Facebook will give you a 'Suggested Bid'. If you are new to Facebook ads then they will suggest a bid price about 10x higher than if you have advertised a lot with them. Price discrimination. If you still bid for a lower price, your ads will still be shown, but they won't be shown until after the higher bids are shown first. But there is plenty of traffic on FB that your ads will be shown.

    Anyway, 2 things to keep in mind as you're starting out getting cheap likes.

    As automation hero wrote, you can gain cheap likes only from regions that aren't tier1 or even tier2 countries. For example in MMO niche, while building your list you have to take care of your community origin because Tier1 countries convert best.

    Ty, what is the niche of your page? If we know some specifics maybe we could help you create well targeted ad to optimize price for like.

    There are many different tactics...

      I have a dog training company with two main offerings:

      - Local services of training, boarding, daycare

      - International sales of DVDs. While I do sell international I prefer to target just the U.S.

      There are a few reasons I'm looking to increase likes:

      1- Social proof.
      2- Let local people know about new daycare and boarding offers, etc.
      3- We're starting to put out more products and I'd like to get some interest going from a U.S. community on the content and info we put out about our new products.

        Ty, you are in a good niche and will reach right target with your FB ads.

        It's great that you have possibility to target your local area for local service and increase social proof directly from your area.

        - Organize local event, and then create one on FB, and promote it.
        - Offer coupons and promote the to local community...
        - You could even combine your offline promotion with Facebook. Let's say you give small discounts to your clients whole leave you review on your Facebook page.
        - You can even run photo contest app with valuable prize (if you offer inhouse services it won't cost you much) for most "likeable" dog...


        As for international sales I'd try to create valuable content + share parts of your products and promote those post nation wide.

        There are many methods you can create target audience: from facebooks offered interests to software which will scrape you user uids from targeted niche groups.

        One thing you need to be aware of - cost for US ads are higher than for other countries.

        Cheers

    just my $0.02

    use promoted posts and target your audience really well.... it will keep your costs down. Just finished a small campaign that got $0.02 clicks (not likes...actual clicks) to my money site because I targeted a very small demographic in the promoted post.

    ...and my targeted countries were US and Canada... "tier 2" countries suck as far as traffic and site interaction... waste of money.

    still I see Facebook ads are more useful and it can help you gain social presence as well as targeted audience,
    what else can be cheaper than a single post promote option.
