Let’s face it, Facebook is still very relevant when it comes to promoting your business and advertising your brand. Here are 11 ways to get likes and grow your Facebook page.
1. Invite all your friends
The first one is the simplest one, but also the most important. The moment you have created your Facebook business page, you send an invite to all your friends on your personal account. You see, it’s estimated that each person has approximately 200 friends on their personal account. Out of these 200, all of those have another 200 friends etc. So it’s the best way to start your growth.
2. Add your business page to your profile
Another simple, yet effective way to grow your business page. Just by adding on your personal profile page that you are the administrator or owner of the business page, you will gather curious followers that happen to see it whilst browsing your profile.
3. Ask your employees to add it to their profile
Another of the ways to get likes and grow your Facebook page is to ask your employees to add it to their personal profile, especially if they also admit it. This way you double the chance of people noticing it. As we said earlier, everyone has an average of 200 friends and so forth.
4. Add it to your work and education
Adding it to your places of work on your personal profile is another great way to get it noticed by people that look through your profile.
5. Share, share share
Share it everywhere. Do you have a Twitter account? Share it as a link with a caption asking for followers. An Instagram account? Screenshot and link the image so people can follow. Basically, every account should be intertwined.
6. Add it to your forwarding E-mail signature
Every email can be set with an automated signature. Usually, it’s just your name. Keep your name, but also add the link to your business page with a caption for people to join you there. It will give a great boost to your Facebook business page hands down.
7. Export contact E-mails to Linkedin
If you are a Linkedin user (and if you have a business, then you have to have an account) then you can squeeze all those connections for every email that they have. You can export the emails that those users that have connected with you registered with. If you don’t know how simply do a Google search.
8. Invite those that have liked your posts
Yet another of the ways to get likes and grow your Facebook page is by inviting those that have liked your posts to follow your page. Not all that like your posts follow you. Go through those likes regularly and invite all that you have missed.
9. Ask people to like your posts
The simplest ways are those that go overlooked the most. Just by asking your followers and friends, you can get many, many likes for your page and posts. You could say something like “Thumbs up if you liked this post and feel free to tag your friends”.
10. Use Facebook competition
Create a little competition by offering a prize. You could say something like “Like and comment to enter the competition and win free services from our company. Tag a friend so they too may participate”. Be careful though, because Facebook has guidelines on what consists of a competition. Some guidelines are, “You can’t share the competition on your personal page” or “You can’t tag your friends for this competition”. It’s best to check up on these guidelines by yourself first.
11. Find groups and promote your page
Find specific groups by entering your main keywords or phrases into the search bar. Go to groups and pick the ones with the most followers. Do not promote your business directly, but yourself first. Write about who you are and what you do and give them the option to learn more about you by asking questions in the comments or messaging you.
