5 Tips to Getting More Likes on Your Facebook Page

Guest post by Tina

LikeIn this technologically advanced world, social networking sites have become real popular among the youngsters and even the oldies.

Even a 12 year old has a Facebook account. Since millions and billions of people use Facebook, it is a great way to promote your business, interests or services as the chances of getting noticed are more.

Not all Facebook pages do well and hence here we are to educate you about the 5 tips to getting more likes on your Facebook page.

Likes are not as hard to get but you need to know certain things to get liked on Facebook.

Make your page interesting and fun

The world wants entertainment and a good laugh at the end of the day. Make your page really fun to read and to look at. How to make your Facebook page fun?

You can add some interesting and fun videos, pictures, punch lines, activities or even create contests such as ‘the last post wins free movie tickets for XYZ movie’.

This can certainly grab the attention of the local audience and get you more likes and comments. But always remember that Facebook has certain rules too. Adhere by the rules and everything else will be fine.

Good content is the trick

If you want your Facebook page to be really popular then nothing works better than good content! Did you know that when people go to a website, they just look at first few and last few lines to judge whether the website is worth looking at or not.

Same goes with Facebook page – great catchy content can attract a lot of attention. Make it interesting and interactive so that people get keen to read more. Do not ever use technical language which goes on top of the head. Remember that common people exist in this world.

Ask fun and interesting questions

Do you want to grab some attention and get more likes on your page? Then here is the best trick – ask fun questions to people. If you ask boring day to day questions, nobody will bother going to your Facebook page and hence you need to be more creative so that people start talking. Make it more fun and interesting rather than dull and boring. The more conversation means more popularity.

Invite your friends and foes

There is nothing wrong in promoting your page among your friends and foes. What are friends for? They will understand what it means to you. Tell them about your Facebook page and they will surely click the like button for you. There is also an invite friend option through which you can invite your friends. Friendship sake!

URL always helps

Add the URL to your facebook page on everything you can think of – twitter page, LinkedIn page, business card, resume, skillpages – ANYTHING! This way people will surely look up the URL and 4 out of 10 people will surely hit the like button.

So, what are you waiting for? Get started and promote your page everywhere! Don’t forget to invite us to your Facebook page!

  1. I like G+ pages better than FB pages. They are elegant and easy to use. I just wish more people were using G+. Thanks for these tips, I think the first one is very important (and often missed by bigger companies). Why would anyone like or share your content if they are not interesting?

    • I have a Google Plus page but really have no clue what to do with it. You’re not the first person that I heard recommend it.

      I agree with this article. One of the things that I’ve noticed is that the posts that contain more personalized messages versus generic cut and paste generate a lot more feedback.

  2. Good article. I think one of the best ways to get FB likes is just to simply ask for them. If at the bottom of your post you add a call to action saying something like “Facebook likes will really help me out, please support me.” – You would be surprised by how many you actually get.

  3. Great tips! I hope you don’t mind if I add this: don’t exaggerate the Facebook importance: I’ve seen lots of contests that reward people if they gave many “likes” to the specific company fan page. Press releases, ads and so on about their contest on Facebook. Such effort wasted to promote Facebook, when they should focus on their website, not on their fan page, which is nothing but a marketing tool.

  4. Nice advice! It is a great way to get number of likes on our business fan page.

  5. Pretty nice … Tina !!

    Truly said firstly the page should be interesting and content rich to attract likes apart from the other great tricks to get likes.

  6. i have always felt skeptical when it comes to inviting. i do not want to sound too pushy and moreover, those numbers wont be true as majority will be friends

  7. Thanks for giving some pointers Tina! I sometimes “like” the page which it interests me. But I am more cautious about accepting friends’ request and at the same time requesting for one.

  8. All of then are easy to use and way to connect to your family..Thanks for sharing this to us..

  9. I have to admit, the adding good content to my FB page is the part that I am lacking.
    @Raj – I just had a conversation with a social media expert yesterday about G+ pages. I am going to look into that.

  10. Nice Sharing Bro :)

  11. One promotion we can do get more page likes is holding contests and giveaways. I think it really works, too. Just don’t forget to continue posting relevant and interesting images and updates!

  12. This is really a nice share ..Thanks for sharing..

  13. Considering I didnt know google+ had brand pgs til 2day. Facebook

  14. No doubt, Facebook likes help you a lot. But, they are hard to get, at least in the beginning when your site is new. Thanks for the tips.

  15. I think the fastest way to increase your facebook likes aside from inviting people to like your page is to increase it’s exposure by joining communities related with your facebook page.

  16. Facebook likes are important what if you get 1000 of likes who are not interested in your content. Its better to get likes from the guys who are really interested in your content and topic.

  17. People like news, gossips, pictures and funny stories. Combine those and you can harvest Likes all day long :)

  18. Really great tips! Thanks for sharing.

  19. Next week my company, a new start-up, is going to do a big Facebook push. Our plan is to basically request likes from everyone in the community but try to do it in the most warm and personal way. Also, one of the things we liked the most when researching other companies’ business Facebook pages was their Welcome page. So, we have recently added a simple, yet appealing welcome page to our Facebook page.

  20. Well, I’m certainly not going to turn down an invitation like this! :)

    Please take a stroll on over to http://facebook.com/solomompreneur and give the “Like” button a quick click!

    I find what works best to promote my Facebook fan page is to promote other peoples’ awesomeness.

    I pin up blog posts, articles, videos, photos, quotes, jokes, webinars, teleseminars, book launches, contests, freebies (LOTS of freebies!) and anything else I think my fans would truly enjoy and find valuable!

    Works like a charm!

    Nicely done, Tina!

    I think the most important thing is a good content.If people like your content,it will be shared to others.

    • Kiesha Easley says:

      Hi Alex,
      Absolutely! People will enthusiastically share what they enjoy. It’s just a matter of getting it in front of them.

  22. Great tips here…I’m going to be using ‘ask interesting questions’ over the next week and hope for more interaction.

  23. Best way i can suggest that by adding signature link to forums and email account will help to get some likes

  24. @Robert ‘like’ contests just have to be managed properly, to make sure that once you get all the likes, you manage the new fans properly, and show them the way to your site.

    Or, you could just add your entire site to Facebook using an app such as MyWebees (http://www.mywebees.com), which ports your entire website to a tab on your fanpage, so fans can browse your site without having to leave Facebook.

  25. such a nice post….great work and thanks for share it.

  26. Always look for friends and also if can, organize some contest among your friends. It’ll go viral.

    • Kiesha Easley says:

      Hi John,
      Yes, contests are a great way to get people to “Like” a page. Although, they may not stay if they don’t like the content that follows the contest.

  27. Great tips to increase Facebook page likes…Am surely will try all of them..thnxxx for sharing with us :)

  28. YFBL Admin says:

    Hey guys i started a FB like exchange site, signup and add your page!

    It’s free :)

    I need more users to make this a great site

    http://yourfbooklikes.com/

  29. I agree with you. Even in personal account, people will “like” the post if they got interested on it or they really like it and I think it goes the same with Facebook page. :)

  30. Good content as always is the king but creating good content its also the most difficult issue when posting something that must be creative, unique and attractive.

    Anyway good tips, thanks.

    • Kiesha Easley says:

      Hi Charly,
      Yes, it can be difficult at times. I think it’s best not to force it – if you don’t have something valuable to share, don’t feel pressured to post an update just for the purpose of getting “Likes”. Let it come organically.

  31. I think one of the best ways to get FB likes is just to simply ask for them. If at the bottom of your post you add a call to action saying something like “Facebook likes will really help me out..

  32. weblogbetter is provide best tips about facebook pages….?

    james

    • Kiesha Easley says:

      Hi James,
      Yes, humor is always a great way to get people liking and sharing your content. Thanks for stopping by!

  35. Hey Tina,
    I believe social networking sites like Facebook have by far proven to be the best way to promote your blog and connect with your readers…

  36. I think, I have good content, but still I lack of Facebook likes to my page. And yes, readers find it the most easiest way to subscribe to a site or a blog, these days.

  37. Thanks so much for the information. I hadn’t thought of some of those things : )

  38. Kevin Martin says:

    The key to getting likes on Facebook is to produce content that others find really helpful or entertaining.

  39. Chris Lucernoni says:

    This is good advice!

  40. These are really great tips on how to get more Facebook likes on your page. I really like your point of asking fun and interesting questions. Good job! Thanks for sharing!

  41. Facebook likes really makes a huge difference. very well written post.
    Thanks for sharing this information.

    Regards

  42. I’m very glad you mentioned this point since it is my most concern. No I have no more hesitance to do so.

    “URL always helps

    Add the URL to your facebook page on everything you can think of – twitter page, LinkedIn page, business card, resume, skillpages – ANYTHING! This way people will surely look up the URL and 4 out of 10 people will surely hit the like button.”

    You know before I was afraid that people might think of me that I spread my links everywhere and too promotion to myself. Some even thought that I was a spammer. So, I rarely put my links.

    Now I realize that it is not the right thought I have. I changed it. I will do as you advice.

    Thanks.

  43. Hi,

  56. I’ve been trying to figure out the whole Social Media traffic generation, and I must say it’s hard.
    I’ve kinda died out a little on the social front, and my reach is going down.

    Here I found inspiration on getting more visitors, and maybe more activity on the Facebook site.
    Photos are always a great thing!

    Very interesting site guys.

    Ive got a new page on facebook that surely you will find very illuminating.

    Do a search for the following please (dont worry its safe).

    Conspiracy of Truth.

  58. I have a face book page and i promote it and i have very good techniques for promoting any your social media account or page and thanks for sharing…

  59. I too have a FaceBook Fan Page for my website (http://mujiburrehman.com ). .I am trying to build Fans for my FaceBook Fan Page. Right now I have 40 Fans and I am trying to target for 400 for this month end.Thank you for going over this step by step – for people who want
    to maximize the growth of their facebook channel in a short amount of time,
    this is encouraging. For those who want to do it all for free it’s a good look
    at the massive and long list of things to do that would take years of part time
    dabbling that can be automated, tested and optimized with a reasonable budget.

  60. Fitness Wayne says:

    All of the advice for getting likes is good, but very obvious. I was hoping for some crazy secret techniques.

  61. I’m contemplating using a fiverr gig to get likes to my new FB page. Anybody here with recommendation? Much appreciated!

    • Errr…. don’t?

      Facebook isn’t about the number of likes you have on your page. It’s about the number of relevant likes on your page – people who are likely to actually interact with your page and posts once they’ve clicked like.

      Fiverr (or any other like-buying mechanism) is a complete waste of money. If you want to get more fans on your page, use Facebook ads.

  62. good post – when we get round to launching our facebook page for Midas I will certainly use this as a reference point – thanks!

  63. I would like to draw some of the tips from one the posts that I came across recently:

    Instilling life in a fan page is important so as to the keep the “Number of people talking about your page” in check. It is also important that fan pages although might be for official purpose, but one has to put up posts that contain an element of laughter in it. Also, finding some Unique Branding methods by out of the box thinking is also going to help.
