20 Ways to Get More Facebook Page Likes

The key to succeeding with any Facebook Page is to gain a significant amount of fans. The more Facebook Page Likes you gain, the easier it will be to generate revenue or funnel traffic to your monetized website.

Facebook like thumbAs your posts get liked and shared, your Page’s reach and visibility increases, leading to organic growth. With 4.75 billion pieces of content being shared daily, how do you get people to hit the Like button on your Page?

We’ve got several (mostly free!) ways you can increase your number of Facebook Page Likes. Start growing your fan base with the following tips.

How to Increase Your Facebook Page Likes

  1. Keep your posts short. Research suggests that posts containing 100-119 characters get the most engagement. (Posts that pose a question get even higher engagement!)
  2. Add value to other Pages and blogs in your niche. Comment on other Pages as your Page, leaving informative responses that will increase your authority and visibility.
  3. Create a giveaway. The FPTraffic Giveaway feature prompts users to post about the giveaway, which can drive more Likes to your Page.
  4. Optimize your Page for SEO. Add relevant keywords to your Page’s title and About section to increase its rankings in the search engines.
  5. Post relevant, useful content. Keep up on what’s trending among your fans and look for any gaps you can fill with informative content that they’ll want to share with their friends.
  6. Tag other Pages in your posts. Your post will appear on the other Page’s timeline, increasing your Page’s visibility among their fans who will likely see the value in liking your Page.
  7. Claim a vanity URL that’s catchy and easy to remember.
  8. Embed your Facebook video posts onto your website or blog. This will help promote your Page to your website viewers.
  9. Use popular hashtags when posting about trending topics or breaking news.
  10. Keep promotional content to a minimum. Post mostly informative, educational content and sprinkle in promotional content here and there. Follow the 80/20 rule, posting promotional content only 20% of the time.
  11. Post consistently. Create a post schedule to consistently get content in front of people and increase engagement.
  12. Ask your fans to share photos on your Page. When they do, your Page will appear in their friends’ feeds and increase your Facebook Page Likes.
  13. Add your Page to a Fan Page directory list.
  14. Use the Facebook Page Plugin on your website or blog. This encourages people to share your content and it boosts your Page Likes.
  15. Use captivating and relevant images. Between 65 and 85% of people describe themselves as visual learners, meaning they digest information easier by viewing rather than reading. The FPTraffic Chrome Extension allows you to easily find and schedule great images for your posts!
  16. Create a Facebook Group in your industry. This is a great way to reach prospects who haven’t liked your Page yet. You’ll provide value and gain trust, driving more Likes to your Page.
  17. Connect with admins of popular Facebook Groups in your niche. They’ll see you as an authoritative source and be more likely to share content from your Page.
  18. Cross-promote your Pages.
  19. View your Facebook Page Insights to see your most popular content. Use those results to give fans more of the content they want, and they’ll be more likely to share that content.
  20. Create Facebook Ads for Likes. At a budget that you control, Facebook will promote your Page to reach more people interested in your niche and boost your Likes.

Getting Facebook Page Likes doesn’t have to be complicated or cost you too much money. There are several ways to keep boosting your traffic. Remember to always post content that provides value to your fans, increase your visibility by engaging with other Pages, and ask your fans to engage with your Page as well.

How to Invite People to Like Your Facebook Page

At FPTraffic, we love sharing quick and easy strategies to help you get more traffic to your Facebook Page. If you just created a new Page or have a small following, this technique is for you.

Facebook has a feature that allows you to invite people to Like your Facebook Page who have liked your posts . It requires a few clicks on your part, but it’s quick, free and sure to get you results. Sounds pretty good, right?

It’s possible and likely that people are seeing and liking your posts even if they aren’t following your Page, especially if you ran an ad or boosted a post. This feature allows you to snag those users and convert them into Page followers.

How do we know it works? The people you’re inviting have already shown their interest in your Page by liking your content. Because they’ve come across your Page, they’re already familiar with your brand or niche. For those reasons, they’re that much more likely to push the “Like” button on your invite.

Another perk – since these users have engaged with your content already, you’re gaining followers who are likely to keep the engagement rate going up. By inviting people who like your posts to like your Page, you’re going to improve your reach and engagement!

And it only takes a few clicks of the mouse. Keep reading to learn how to invite people to like your Facebook Page.

Invite People to Like Your Facebook Page

Once you’ve created a Facebook Page, you need to get likes on a post in order to use this Facebook feature. Start by adding valuable content with FPTraffic, then set up an ad to put your content in front of the right audience.

When you have a number of likes on your post, click the total number of likes as shown below:

Click to Invite People to Like your Page

Note: If Facebook only shows a couple names, this won’t work. Use a post that shows how many likes there are.

[ecko_alert color=”green”]You are only able to invite people to Like your Page if you have less than 100,000 Likes on your Page.[/ecko_alert]

A pop-up appears showing the names of users who liked the post. To the right of the person’s name, there will be a button that either displays Invite or Liked. Click the Invite buttons to invite those users to like your Page.

The user will receive an invitation in their notifications to like your Page. More often than not, you’ll find that they accept and you’ll have a new Page Like!

According to the Facebook Help Team, there is no set limit on how many people you can invite to like your Page from the posts. The system may only place a limit if there is a high number of people not responding to the invite. We recommend only inviting 200 people a day maximum just to be safe.

Tips for Inviting Users

Using this feature can easily get you more Likes without costing you any extra money. We have a couple guidelines to keep in mind to use this feature effectively:

  • Do it manually: You can find tools to automatically invite your friends to Like your Page, but we recommend doing it manually to help prevent your Facebook account from being flagged.
  • Invite people quickly after publishing the post: The more recent a person interacted with your content, the more likely they are to accept your invitation to like your Page.
  • Implement this into your daily or weekly routine: Every couple days, make a point to go through your recent posts to invite those users who liked them to Like your Page. It only takes a minute or two and you’ll find it to be well worth your time.

[ecko_contrast]You need engagement on your Facebook Page before you can begin inviting users to Like it. Start getting engagement today by finding and posting awesome content from FPTraffic’s content sources!
