For any online business people, just having a great website for promoting your business is only the first baby step towards your online success. In order to reach out to much broader audience, you have to gain influence in social media platforms. Speaking of social media, the king of this format is Facebook. According to compete.com, Facebook is the Number One social network in terms of competitive ranking. By the end of 2012, Facebook’s unique visits have reached well over 165 million hits per month.
Do you have your Facebook Page yet?
What is a Facebook Page?Pages are for businesses, organizations and brands to share their stories and connect with people. Like timelines, you can customize Pages by adding apps, posting stories, hosting events and more. Engage and grow your audience by posting regularly. People who like your Page and their friends will get updates in their news feeds.
I created a Facebook page for onlinebz.com over two months ago, but I’ve been unhappy with the number of “likes” I’ve gotten in this period of time. I started thinking of ways to increase my Facebook page “likes” and I discovered some interesting facts to share with you.
One Facebook page scored 1 million “likes” in 13 days by asking for “Likes”: Another page called : “I bet Texas can get 1 million fans before any other state” has 1,078,816 likes right now, but the amount of time it took is unsure.
How about this:
Hi World. We want a puppy! Our dad said we could get one if we get 1 million likes! He doesn’t think we can do it! So LIKE this!
Two girls wanted a puppy, so they created the Facebook page “twogirlsandapuppy”. It was rumored that 7 hours after this webpage was created, their dad had to prepare a place for a new arrival.
So I got it…
Create a unique, or rather an “absurd” Facebook page so that it could go viral in a matter of hours.
The format is like this: “If I get one million likes, I will ______”
In the blank area, You can choose to put ” shave half my hair off”, or anything that you think people will be amused enough with to ‘like’ your page.
However, the results are not guaranteed. Some Facebook pages with similar slogans could not hit the jackpot.
How to get more likes on Facebook page?
Absurd method means rare; not all people can copy the examples above to get noticed and liked by the Facebook community. How can you get more likes on Facebook pages for ordinary people?
One easy step is to add your Facebook page to your own website. Many websites put their Facebook like box inside their sidebars, near the top. You can also add a Facebook “like” button on top of your posts or near the end of each one for people to easily access it.
Writing interesting, informative and educational articles on your website and posting them on your Facebook page is unarguably the most important reason for people to like your Facebook page. Spending time to engage with your fans on your Facebook page is equally important.
When you don’t have any news to post on your Facebook page, you can offer some funny or meaningful images you’ve found from internet. The Facebook community loves interesting photos, images, e Cards, memes and info-graphics. Visually entertaining stuff on Facebook can easily get a bunch of likes.
In addition to sharing trending images from others on your own Facebook Page status, how about making some of your own?
Create your own memes, images or infographics for your Facebook page status
If you scroll up to the top of this article, you can see the Y U No meme I created using memegenerator. Do some Google searches for “meme generator”, or “make a meme”, you can find other similar websites offering the same service. Use some of them to create your own memes that associate with your own brands. When people “like” your creations and talk about them, they are naturally getting themselves familiar with your brands.
Good infographics can take the place of a whole article. For making your own infographics, I found out a very good website called Piktochart. This website offers a lot of ready to use infographic designs either for free or with a fee. For tech-savvy people this might not be worthy news, but for others, this website can save you a lot of valuable time and energy that you can use for better causes. For preparing my next post on Onlinebz.com, I used this tool to create a-funny- looking- face infographic to emphasize the topic of my article. You can have a sneak peak right now.
People also love to share funny or silly images. Register with jibjab to access their funny eCards and videos, post them on your Facebook page status to attract more fans. There is a cost associated with this service: $1 per month.
You can also choose to use a free website of someecards.com to make your own ecards, such as the one I made above. You can put on your own wordings or find some encouraging quotes to go with them, neat and easy.
Now your Facebook page looks more entertaining and fun to read.
There is more.
Use GO! Animate.com to create your own animated videos. From there you can directly post them to your Facebook account. There are three types of account your can choose, from free to pro.
Don’t forget to ask for “likes” to your Facebook pages
I have been asked many times to like some Facebook pages, which I choose to like depending on my interest, because all the updates of your “liked” Facebook pages will show up on your news feed. To like a Facebook page is a great way to get immediate updates of the topics you’re interested in.
I am assuming that after reading up to this point, you must be interested in getting to know more tips about “how to make money online”, you can choose to “like” my Facebook page to have all the updates delivered in your Facebook account.
