No matter what niche you’re in or what type of business you run this blog post about how to grow Facebook fan pages applies to you.
Whether you already have an established Facebook fan page or are just getting started you’ll want to learn what I’m about to share with you.
If you’re new to social media marketing you’ll want to first setup your Facebook fan page and grow it as large as you can.
From my experience it’s easiest to build your following on Facebook first simply because it’s the largest and they offer a way for you to quickly gather likes/follows through very cheap “like ads”.
In fact you can always get likes to your pages for a single penny per like or less!
I’ve personally seen likes for as little as $0.001, although it’s rare and becoming increasingly more expensive as more and more advertisers continue to be entered into the mix.
As of this writing, I can consistently get likes for $0.01 each no matter what my Facebook fan page is about or even what images or copy I use in my ads.
The trick to getting the cheapest likes possible is to target worldwide without any interests and without changing any of the demographics (i.e. age, gender, etc.). However I do tend to ensure that everyone who likes one of my pages can speak/read English.
Now while these are usually folks from tier 2 and tier 3 countries (tier 1 countries consist of United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand) these are real people and not fake likes or bots.
If you want to get your likes to even less than $0.01 each you will have to exclude the United States for sure and possibly the other four tier 1 countries mentioned above.
Now you might be asking yourself, “Why would I want all of these likes/follows from tier 2 and 3 countries?”
The answer is social proof!
It’s natural for people to typically will follow what others do. So if you have a lot of likes/followers on your Facebook fan pages then when your page gets exposed to tier 1 traffic at some point they’re much more likely to click the “like” button than if your Facebook fan page has only a few likes/followers.
It’s a common case of “FOMO”, or fear of missing out.
I’m sure if you think about it for a second you’ve done it yourself. I know I have…
Plus you must also realize that just because the majority of your likes/followers are from tier 2 and 3 countries does not mean that they’re worthless or don’t share an interest to your Facebook fan page. They can be just as valuable as someone from the tier 1 countries.
Since you can get all of these likes/followers for so cheap you may be tempted to spend a lot of money in a short period of time…
However I recommend you only spend $1 per day per Facebook fan page at least in the beginning and here’s why.
When you spend less you gain less likes/followers per day and it looks more natural and realistic.
Once my pages get to 10,000 likes/followers I like to bump my daily budget up to $2 per day. But it’s completely optional and not necessary by any means.
Below are the guidelines I usually stick to:
0 – 9,999 (likes/followers) = $1/day
10,000 – 19,999 (likes/followers) = $2/day
20,000 – 49,999 (likes/followers) = $3/day
50,000 – 99,999 (likes/followers) = $4/day
100,000+ (likes/followers) = $5/day
By the way, you don’t usually have to pay for likes/followers forever. There’s usually a tipping point to your pages depending on niche and content being posted, that your pages will grow organically simply by the fact that your audience will like/share your content.
The absolute best way to get your pages to grow organically is by being active and engaging with your audience when they like, comment, and share.
This is a lot of work for one page, let alone multiple pages.
That’s where my new business, Reach Fanatics, comes in…
