WAYS TO GET MORE LIKES
1. Add your Fan page to weekly bloghops.
Below is a list of 5 Fan Page promote sites that I have used to help build my fan base.
Like the fan pages from your personal account and then after that you can post on their page from your Fan Page that you are their newest like.
If you're interested you can do some Facebook paid advertising, it's not that expensive and I've had great results.
SHARE YOUR NEWS
Continue to Share the News of Your Fan Page on your personal account and share several of your posts to your personal account.
If you have good connections that have Fan pages let me know because we can ask them to share about your new fan page.
Create a statement for them like...
Our friend Diana McCoy just launched her new fan page, she'll be sharing her love of Naples and passion for helping families find their dream homes. Visit www.facebook.com/McCoyNaplesRealEstate, like her page and tell her we sent you.
You can edit the wording above to fit your business and then send a private message to any fan page you are interested in connecting with.
ASK FRIENDS TO SHARE YOUR POSTS
Ask a few of your friends if they wouldn't mind sharing your posts for a few weeks on their profile. All they have to do is click the share button.
Good luck! If you have any questions be sure to comment below.
