Have you ever wondered why most businesses have their own Facebook fan page? Why they’re trying to get more likes as many as they could? It’s easy as 1-2-3. Facebook has been the largest network of people today. Almost everyone has his or her own Facebook account regardless of age. This only means that their customers are most probably on the said Social Networking Site. That’s enough reason for them to desire the most likes on their fan page. But the question is how can it happen? In this article, we will discuss strategies by which you can get the most likes for your business’ Facebook fan page.
2 Ways To Get Facebook Likes
There are actually 2 ways by which you can gather likes on Facebook. The first way is called Organic. It is the hardest and the most promising. It is hard because you either need to be a popular celebrity or an influential business tycoon for people to like your page without the essential marketing. On the other hand, having exceptional content will also compel them to like your page and long for more information you are providing through that page. It is the most promising because it lasts. The authority you build through your Facebook fan page will stick to people’s mind for the longest time. They will remember you for the great content you provide and you will be recognized in your niche of interest.
The second way is the artificial means and this is where we will focus in our discussion. In this way you will somehow manipulate the playing field in a good sense. There are also two ways that you can make people like your page in this method. The first is you can buy likes. It’s like buying votes. This is super expensive. Imagine buying a like for $2, that’s $200 for a hundred likes and for a thousand likes you’ll need $2000. You need to be Richie-rich to have 10,000+ likes on your business’ Facebook fan page.
But there’s still the second way in the artificial means of getting more likes and it is creating the demand. Through this way, you will give the reason why people need to like your page. There are a lot of techniques in doing this. For one, you can run a contest on your fan page where you’ll give away a trip to the Philippines, or you can give away gadgets like an IPAD and other prices you think the people in your niche are interested. Today, there is no better way to gather likes on Facebook other than running a contest that will force or will let people like your page.
Running A Contest On Facebook
Before running a contest, you need to know three things. First is who your target likers are? Running a contest and getting the likes from the people who aren’t on your niche is useless. You’re losing the purpose of getting likes if you target the wrong people. Second is how much are you willing to spend for the likes you will get? Prizes matter in a contest. If you’re just willing to give away just a piece of candy, no one would dare to join your contest. But, if you’re willing and able to give away, let’s say, a free pass to a luxurious resort like Caliraya Recreation Center, people will pour in naturally as participants. You need a competitive prize for your contest before people will engage themselves to it. Next thing you need to consider is the mechanics of your contest. Of course, you need to include that people should like your page as a part of the contest mechanics. It should not be too hard for people to comply before they can have a chance to win. Lastly, you will also need an effective marketing for your contest, so that people will know that you have a contest running. Running a Facebook contest can be very challenging especially if you don’t have a compelling prize for people to join your contest.
Having more Facebook likes on your business’ fan page can do a lot of favor to your company. One, it will give people the impression that you have the reputation in your business niche. Two, It’s an automatic customer list. Most probably, the people who liked your page are possible customers for your business. Three, since a lot liked your page you can use that as another channel of marketing for your business. You can use it to promote new products or services, promotions or discounts, and to let your customers know about company events and activities. These are some of the things you can do with a viable Facebook fan page for your company. There’s a lot more benefits in having 10000+ likes on your business’ fan page, all you have to do is to get the likes and discover the power it has in store for your company.
