I’ve got to be honest here. When I was first starting out as a social media manager, I had zero idea on how to get more Facebook Page Likes. So what our team and I would do is just go out and buy them (taking the easy way out). Not proud about this but when you’re in a fast startup, you have to try different things, learn from your mistakes and keep the numbers high with traffic coming in to ensure new business.
Though, I’m telling you now that buying Facebook Likes is not a good idea, just in case you were thinking of doing the same thing. Yes, they help you look like you’re popular but that’s about it. Its not targeted traffic and they will have very little interest if any about what your business does. It can certianly take you on a wrong turn with your Facebook marketing progress.
Think about it, they are not real people hence you get no engagements from them. Therefore, your Facebook insights won’t look so good because you have a lot of Page Likes but nobody’s really engaging with you. Always remember search engines and social sharing sites are looking for reactions, social proof and reviews from clients. The more likes, comments and share you are getting the more this is a trust signal to Facebook that you are a successful company.
An Effective (But Slow Way) To Get More Facebook Page Likes
Ever heard of the saying, “slowly but surely”? Well, it applies to this technique I’m going to share with you because its worth it.
If you’re also growing your followers on Twitter by using the common strategy of following a thousand followers in a day using Twitter Follow tools like CrowdFire or Statusbrew, this is going to work for you.
In your Welcome DMs or Auto DMs, you can simply put there:

Noticed how I didn’t just say:
Hi! Please like our Facebook Page!
It’s because you’ve got to tell people what’s in it for them and be honest or at least tell them what updates or content they will see if they do like your page. If you can take away their pain points, answer questions and give as much value as possible you will be doing great!
Dave Kerpen, the CEO of Likeable Media, actually pointed this out in his book likeable social media, How to Delight Your Customers, Create an Irresistible Brand, and Be Generally Amazing on Facebook (and other social networks).
“don’t just tell them to like you, tell them what’s in it for them, and tell them in a way that’s about them, not you.”
