We are always wanting more Facebook Page Likes & why wouldn’t you? Each ‘LIKE’ is potential future customers in the making!
We have put together 21 quick & simple ways to get more Facebook Likes, TODAY!
21 Tips to Increase your Facebook Following:
- Use content that works
Find content that is already popular & could be entertaining or informative to your audience.
- Make sure that your Facebook Profile is complete
Make sure that your profile photo, cover photo, biography & business information is complete & up-to-date. Not only does this show your professional attitude, but it also makes it easier for users to search & find you on Facebook.
TIP: Place in keywords related to your business that users may search for.
- Take advantage of ‘Facebook Insights’
As a marketer, knowing who your audience is, is extremely important. Especially when all of your marketing relies on you knowing who that audience is. If you have a page & aren’t checking your stats, then you’re missing out on a lot of useful information. Go check out your page’s insights now, you’ll be amazed at how much information is available about your audience. Facebook Insights are located in the top menu bar on your page.
- Keep it relevant
Make sure what you’re posting is relevant! Eg. Don’t post about vehicles you don’t have or promote something that happened months ago that no one cares about anymore. Share content & news that is happening now! Your fans want to be up to date (they easily get FOMO) & are more likely to share current offers & news with friends & family.
- Have a ‘Facebook Like Button’ on your website
Such a simple & easy thing to add to your website – chat with your web guys today!
- Post like Goldilocks!
Try and post frequently – remember, the more you post, the more chances you have to grow your audience! But don’t kill it, there is nothing worse than to have a user frustrated by seeing you so much in their news feed they choose to UNLIKE your page! Do some testing & find whats “just right” for your audience.
- Include “Like our Facebook Page” on all your print & digital marketing
Including brochures, press advertising, business cards, flyers, website banners & EDM’s.
- Host a Facebook Event
Host an event at a specific time every day/week that users can keep returning for.
