How I Get 87% More Facebook Page “Likes” Every Day

by Tory McBroom · 15 comments

Facebook Page LikesBy now you know the power of Facebook.

It became apparent to everybody in early 2010 when Facebook surpassed Google as the most visited site in America.

And if you utilize a Facebook page for your website then you understand how much traffic it can send you.

Targeted traffic that is interested in what you have to offer!

It’s because of this that we should continually be looking for ways to increase our Facebook fan base.

Of course, you know to display a Facebook “like” box in your sidebar, put a like button on every page, blah frickin’ blah…

But, what I have for you is an underutilized, extremely quick and easy way to increase your Facebook page “likes” automatically EVERY DAY!

As you can see, during the month of March one of my sites got 41 new “likes”.  This was about average for this site.

After implementing this simple technique at the beginning of April, I saw an 87% increase in the number of “likes”.

So, what is this super duper secret? Simply put, you should be asking your email list* to visit and “like” your Facebook page! (Don’t have an email list? Get started today with Aweber for only $1!)

The growth rate and responsiveness of your email list will impact how many new “likes” you get per day…

BUT, there are ways to MAXIMIZE the amount of “likes” your page gets with this method:

  1. Instead of just sending out an email to your current subscribers asking them to “like” your Facebook page, set up a Follow Up email in your autoresponder series to email each subscriber.  If you average 20 new subscribers per day, then every day you could have 20 new potential Facebook fans.
  2. Don’t just ask your subscribers to go and “like” your page.  If only it were that easy, huh.  Instead entice them with a free gift or special content.  One of my sites Facebook page’s has a “FREE Stuff” tab with downloadable eBooks, recipes, etc.  So, in my email to my subscribers I tell them to jump over to my Facebook page to claim their free gifts.  If you utilize an optimized Facebook landing page, then converting that traffic to subscribers should be easy!
  3. Craft a catchy headline for your email!  You need to entice your email list subscribers to open the email in the first place.  In my example above, the headline I send out to my list states “More Free Gifts Just For You!”.  This email is pretty far down in my autoresponder list, yet it gets higher open rates then the emails that are a lot higher up.

This simple technique can also be used to explode your Twitter and/or Google + subscribers, as well.

Ok, so all of this is fine and dandy, but some of you may be thinking what’s the point in getting email subscribers to be Facebook subscribers?  After all, they are ALREADY subscribed in one way or another.

Here’s why:

  1. It offers another way for you and your brand to be everywhere and stay on your readers radar.
  2. Some people are more receptive to pitches/content you place on Facebook rather than the emails you send them – and vice versa.
  3. If they unsubscribe from your email list, you potentially still have them as a subscriber to your Facebook page.

I’m sure there are more reasons, but you get the point.  So, get out there and add a new follow up to your email campaign and explode your Facebook fan base!

* If you’re not building an email list then you’ve got bigger problems.  Hop on over to AWeber and get started for just a $1!

Do you need 1,000’s of Facebook fans fast and without relying on an email list?  Then let Splib Media jump start your new Facebook fan page or grow an existing one. While I wouldn’t use a service like this on my personal blog, I have used it for a few of my niche site fan pages and Splib Media is by far the best of the few I tried.

Another way (which is similar) is to tweet your twitter followers and suggest they sign up to your Facebook page.

This is especially good if you have built a tightly focused on-subject twitter following

I find a trick that works is putting up posts on your wall with @name of your page. When you start typing this, a drop box appears and you can select the name of your Facebook page which then appears as a hyperlink.

Great article. I am an owner of an online clothing store and I have a facebook page. I know that it’s a little different than bloggers and such because it’s harder to give away free stuff. Do you have any recommendations how I can get more likes as well?

I too have a FaceBook Fan Page for my website. One thing to keep in mind is “Likes” are not a totally owned (pay once, use for free) type of list. You can indeed send posts to your “likes” for free – but in general, you’ll be limited to about 16% deliverability here (people who will see it in their FB stream).

Beyond that – there are lots of ways to then Rent higher performing access to the Like list you “own”, including ways of getting higher deliverability through sponsored stories, and then as you pointed out – ways of accessing friends of the likes. So the like list is not totally free, but…

From what I’ve been hearing (and your story seems to corroborate) – the various ways of “renting” better access to your like list produce a huge ROI; and so even though you don’t completely “own” your like list, it is still a great asset to build and then invest in the various ongoing free and rental options to engage them.

Now with that said, time to go setup my own like campaign :->.

Thanks for the advice. We have a very niche content area and by far the best tip from us is commenting on similar fanpages. Cheers

Hey Tory,

Great tip! I’m using Aweber and I’m thinking about doing a contest with my subscribers to get some activity going on my wall.

Will let you know how it goes :-)

Thank You

Thanks for this. I think you’ve convinced me it’s finally time to start a Newsletter of my very own. I’d been hesitant for quite a while now because I wasn’t sure that between writing my novels, keeping up on social media and writing my blog posts, that I’d be able to squeeze enough interesting extra tidbits out for a Newsletter.

Now I’m thinking that I’d be better served to cut back on some of my other social media time and create a Newsletter with it.
