5 Freaky Ways to Get FB Likes That You Haven't Thought Of

5 Freaky Ways to Get FB Likes That You Haven't Thought Of

5_Freaky_Ways_to_Get_FB_Likes_That_You_Havent_Thought_Of-lsget fb likes on fan pageSometimes I wish I could start a Facebook page & just watch the Likes flood in.

Unfortunately, the saying "if you build it, they will come" doesn't apply to Facebook marketing.

Getting Likes on your page is hard work.

Don't let anyone tell you it's like waving a magic wand.

It’s NEVER that easy.

We often write about the basics of how to get Facebook Likes on your page. These 2 posts had all sorts of great tips:

Today, I cover how to get FB Likes on your page -- specifically, 5 ways to get more Likes that you probably haven't thought of yet.

5 Freaky Ways to Get FB Likes That You Haven't Thought Of

Here we go!

1. Guest Posting

Guest posting is similar to speaking at a conference.

If you provide value for the audience, people will swarm you after your speech -- wanting to get to know you better.

But guest posting is not just a great way to build your authority on a subject, you can also use a post you write for somebody else's blog to get more Facebook Likes.

My guest posts have gotten me lots of Likes.

I didn’t know where all the new Likes were coming from until I started receiving messages thanking me for my articles.

Make sure to link from your author bio to your Facebook page. That's the key!


2. Redirect New Subscribers to Like

Here’s a creative way to get more Likes on Facebook!

When a reader subscribes to your blog opt-in form, instead of giving them the same old boring confirmation email & asking them to check their inbox (yawn), use the real estate to thank them & ask them to Like your Facebook page.

When readers stumble on your blog through a search engine & love what you wrote, they will subscribe.

If someone subscribes to your blog, chances are they will also Like your Facebook page if given a chance.

>> Click to Tweet <<

This is a great way to convert a subscriber into a fan!

Here's an example from Melanie Duncan. It’s clear she put lots of thought into this, and if I haven't already Liked her page, I WILL.


3. Co-promote

Facebook contests are excellent ways to get more Likes. But a company once told me that they didn’t have money to buy prizes.

If you don’t have a large budget, partner with other companies to give away prizes from them.

This creates a win-win because both pages will benefit from buzz the contest creates.


4. Brand Your Graphics

When you create or share images on social media, mark the graphics with your logo & website.

Why should you brand your social media graphics?

A few months ago, I saw an awesome quote that was shared on Facebook. Since the image was marked with the company's brand, I searched for the business & found a great place to find awesome quotes for Facebook.

5. Give Away Relevant Goodies on Your Website

I love Creative Market!

I’ve purchased several themes & Photoshop actions from this site.

And every Monday, the website gives away 3 free goodies.

The catch?

You need to download the free stuff from Creative Market's Facebook page.

The website probably generates tons of traffic & this is a great way to get people to the Facebook page.

At first, I was just a customer. But this idea got me to visit their Facebook page, where I'm now a raving fan.


These 5 strategies show you how to get Facebook Likes on your page.
