How to Get More Likes on Your Facebook Page

Big brands have big likes!How to get more Facebook likes

Big likes are on your mind day and night!

And it should be.

Having thousands of likes for your Facebook page ensures you are going to have fans that will visit the next article you write for your blog every time you post the update to your Facebook page.

Facebook is still the king of all social media networks.

In order to get results from social media, Facebook should be one of the top two networks you engage on and optimize.

Just setting up your Facebook page is not going to be enough.

One should develop a strategy in order to get those “likes” for the page. With a plan down you are on your way to  more likes.

In this article, I will outline plenty of ideas on how to develop your strategy and tactics to get likes for your Facebook page.

So read on and get those likes!

Engagement  Is Key

On every social media site, engagement is the key to success and Facebook is no differeent.

In order to attract attention on your Facebook page, be engaging on your personal profile as well.

I always channel my new likes through the engagement I create on my personal profile.

Sharing, commenting on other statuses is is one of the ways I engage on Facebook.

Here is a screenshot of my wall:

Engagement with Facebook profile image

You can clearly see I am always doing something on my wall.

Model the same idea on your part since it can create a new channel of likes to your business Facebook page.

What I also do is create a nice header image of what you do on your site or just simply the logo.

Here is my header image of Internet Dreams on my personal profile:

Internet dreams Facebook header

After you upload it to your personal header, I always invite them to check out my page through a link I create on that image.

Always be cunning on creating new ways of attracting attention since it can lead to greater success!

Sharing For The Others

Sharing your articles on Facebook goes hand in hand with the engagement you create.

What’s nice about Facebook is that when you share an article of another individual, you can create a notification and alert them about it.

Just write their name in the status, and Facebook uses the “mention” functionality to alert them:

Mention likes

Also hosting a contest to increase Facebook likes is another great tactic.

Have a really nice incentive as the prize in order to receive a very nice amount of Facebook likes.

When you are starting to create some sort of income through your blog, then create regular contests on your Facebook page.

 Frequent Updates For Growth

Every time you eat something very good, you will always go for seconds.

I know you will!

Think of it this way.

The updates you add to your Facebook page is like giving your fans something very good to eat.

That is where excellent content goes in!

They will “like” it and even maybe share it onto their profile.

“The sharing and liking they do will attract more new people to your Facebook page.”

Automatically afterward, your audience is absolutely expecting the same experience they had with your other update.

You can see the chain here….give them something good and see the reaction!!

This works well for my Facebook page:

Facebook page updates

The benefits are so many.

Facebook Ads To Boost

Don’t think Facebook ads are useless.

Give it a try. I have.

They have been instrumental in helping me gain Facebook likes for my Facebook page.

If you set up the ad right, it can send your Facebook page to a bigger audience!

I would advise you to set up the ad to go to specific countries.

Another tip is to use the  the “interest” option for the ad.

Watch the performance of the ad and tweak to whatever necessary step you need to take in order to make it better.

Connecting and Asking

Communication–the human connection–is the key to personal and career success.” – Paul J. Meyer

Connections are the cornerstone of spreading ideas and helping each other gain success.

Connections on Facebook are keyin gaining likes for your page!

I always gain new likes through a connection I create on Facebook.

First, find a person that is interested in the same thing you do.

Send them a friend request and wait for their approval.

After, send them a friendly message like this:

Facebook connection thank you message

First, you thank them for connecting with you and include a nice compliment.

This way they are more inclined to like your page!

Writing  Excellent Content

Just write excellent content that will just want them to like your Facebook page!

If you have nothing to show for, then you can forget about gaining new quality likes.

Writing great content should make it possible for them to like your page easily.

Add the “Facebook Social Plugin” to your blog

This makes it easy for people to “like” your Facebook page without even visiting it!

Your blog visitors can like your page right there while reading your blog post!

This is a free WordPress plugin that puts   the “like box” in the sidebar of a blog.

Facebook like box

Whatever your preference is, find your right spot and create excellent, juicy content that they would crave.

This will lead to more Facebook likes!

Wrapping it up!

You now have a plan.

A plan of action!

Take these tips and add them to your social media strategy. Create sick content and get more connections.

So, how do you rack those likes up for your Facebook page?

  • Great article. The one thing I would add is “Try Creating a Community”

  • This article is just what I needed.

    I have a Facebook page for my blog where besides the posts from the blog I also post links to interesting articles from other sites but my number of likes is still quite pathetic.

    I have recently also discovered something called Social Exchange Sites and I am wondering if this is also the way to increase likes.

  • Great article Jeff. I’ll be sure to try these for our page.

  • Excellent post Samuel. Sharing photos of other businesses in the context of some event meaningful to that business, then tagging employees of that business in the photo is a great way to get visibility and grow a fan base. Thanks for sharing.

  • My facebook traffic ebbs and flows with the amount of activity I provide on the page. Great tips here!

  • Good tips, you have to engage and converse with your Facebook fans, don’t just spew automated feed of blogs to your fanpage, you need to ask questions, talk to the folks it is a social media tool not a directory! I also grow my fanpages by hosting and co-sponsoring giveaways these work very well for me.

  • makemyblogmoney

    I have recently been using Facebook ads for my fan page online. One thing that I could use is a better fan page cover image. I’m pretty bad at design and I guess that’s why I have lagged in that department.

    • Otoabasi Umonting

      Hey there, I agree that having a cover image on your page is a plus, and it can also help boost your status on the platform (It adds that professional touch to your brand). I have been to countless pages that lack this feature. If you like I can help you set one up.

      • makemyblogmoney

        Sure thing..I have been gingerly thinking about Fiverr but something about it makes me cringe

  • Otoabasi Umonting

    Great post. One method that has always worked for me is Facebook PPC Ads. But having the likes is not the last bus stop. The fans need to be kept engaged, or else they will leave. Thanks for sharing this insight.

  • Hi Jeff, Great article! Thanks, for the tips.
    “Likes” from other Facebook business pages don’t show-up in your pages like count; but, I’m wondering if they are not more valuable in other ways? Do likes from other business pages count as inbound links?

  • thanx bro for sch a nice bunch of working tips

    Nice post, I have found it very educative and I’m going to use the ideas to promote and get more life for facebook fanpage. I’m Oj@ NaijaBizCom

  • Beth Jackson

    There are a few new systems I have been implementing to get more facebook likes. Whenever I create a new page, I actually go and buy some real, targeted facebook likes from SocialFatBoy. This helps me get my page up and going, and get a vanity URL. The next thing I do is create a facebook ad and promote it to my targeted audience. The likes on the page help the brand look more reputable and as if it has been active longer than it actually was. Those two steps have been critical to the success of my new pages.

  • If you are looking for Facebook fans, I highly recommend http://www.SocialFatBoy.com

  • Great and useful article. Will definitely put it to use on our newly created facebook page for our birthday invitation website http://www.generalprints.com. Haven’t gave the facebook ads method a try yet, but will be part of our strategy now. thank you.

  • thanks

  • Guest

    Thank you for this great article I do have a question though – or an observation.

    Some of my posts get more shares than I have page likes!! And when I ask people to ask the people whom they share my posts with to like my page there is only a “like” for that post with no additional page likes. I write to educate and for engagement on the NPO for profit pages that I administer on Facebook. Soclal networking is a two way street. If I post original content OR content that took effort to dig deep and find the expectation is that people will like it share it and my page iikes will increase – that does not happen? Authors, bloggers, celebs get paid for their time to share original posts via “Likes” and “followers” that is the currency of social networking. If I share something YOU like and share with 100 people I expect a “Like” from the people who took my content and ran that is called common courtesy or else why bother? Can someone please “share” how to turn the shares into likes – I do appreciate the “likes” and the “followers” I do have without doubt but do expect my social network currency to increase when people share my content on their walls and with their friends family and colleagues – a like or at least a mention lets me know that I am on the right track my time is as valuable as the addition to a wall that has not liked my page.

  • Solar City

    I like ^_^

  • kaushiki-iqecommerce

    Thanks..It was a nice article..but I would add that Facebook offers one more option of “tagging”which directly sends the notification on the homepage of the concerned person thus increasing chances of more likes.

  • Eve

  • Taimur Ahmed

    yeah …exactly … but if someone is finding to add facebook likes on his page for free… i have seen an article on http://techedium.blogspot.com/2013/08/get-unlimited-likes-to-your-page-for.html . i guess it might be helpful.

  • Grip Down

    Lots to do still I see. thanks

  • Jess Thompson

    Tip from http://www.addsocials.com
    Don’t make the header image too big / high. Adjust your header image or cover photo so that the like button is clearly visible and at eye level.

  • Richard Asuquo Anwanakak

    I don’t agree with the “connecting and asking” point. I never respond to such people. They seem like spammers to me.

  • jame1

    Sceptics point to the MOOCs’ high drop-out rates, which in some cases exceed 90%. But Coursera and Udacity both insist that this reflects the different expectations of consumers of free products, who can browse costlessly.

  • Besides providing online courses to their own (generally fee-paying) students, universities have felt obliged to join the MOOC revolution to avoid being guillotined by it

  • Not sure about facebook ads… I spent a couple hundred dollars and I got some page likes for my facebook page http://facebook.com/santiswebdev (not sure if I attracted the right audience), but I just don’t like the fact that not all people that liked your page will you your updates.

  • Jordans Fireworks

    lots of useful info but it can be easy to spend lots of time doing social media rather than getting on with business

  • I found using photo like infographic and asking question works well.

  • Krsity

    Thanks for this article, this would really help for readers to gain more ideas on how to increase their likes on facebook. I had also seen some articles that have the same idea and it worked for me too. Check this blog, http://viralkick.com/blog/997/ if you’re interested.

  • Thanks for such nice tips and gail you are right it is a great challange

  • I agreed but i am getting awesome and organic traffic from google plus as compare to facebook i have shared samsung galaxy s5 duos http://www.myshop.com.pk/samsung-galaxy-s5-duos-g900fd-pakistan.html and got excellent response

  • andy pearson

    It says the likes are real and I have had YouTube views from them which worked ok but Im abit unsure about the FB part?
    The site is below:

    Thanks in advance for your advice
    Have a great day,

  • Yeah Gail you right, but im sure it can be done. im also looking to increase my facebook page with real active like and and not this dummy like people are offering to buy online. http://www.facebook.com/sacartraderonline

  • Talal

    I have applied this method but no likes until now , what is the reason . Please check by yourself my page 🙁


  • Sheena L. Mathieson

    Thanks for your very informative post. Yes I agree. Frequent updates, sharing, ads can boost likes. But I’d like to add something like Facebook Contests, Coupons, something VIRAL, TRENDING, and INNOVATIVE.There are many things how to gain likes inside facebook without the help of any services. We could generate likes even more when we did it right especially when we can make our visitors happy to what we are doing.

  • Great article that my clients and business associates will definitely find useful! Thanks for sharing.

  • Valentina Portnova

    lots of useful info but it can be easy to spend lots of time doing social media rather than getting on with business

  • thanks for sharing

  • sam williams
