how to get more likes for your facebook page by FitSmallBusiness.com
Step 1: Get Your Mind Right
It takes time! so put at least an hour or two into it each week. And also, it will take time to start getting traction on Facebook, around 1 to 6 months.
Step 2: Look at your competitors page, and see what they are doing successfully.
Do not copy! but check the content they are posting, how often, and at what time of the day they post. How do they interact with customers?
Step 3: Come up with a content calendar
Content is king of facebook, without regular content being posted on your facebook page, it will not be succesful.
Post 80% useful/ entertaining content and post 20% promotional content.
More interaction = more likes. Give the users something to click on, comment and like.
Keep In Mind Keep the text of the status update short. Ask Yes/No questions so you get quick answers. Questions posts get 100% more comments. Photos get 53% more likes, 104% more comments and 84% more clickthroughs. (Learn more here)
Keep In Mind Post a least once or twice a day. Post on Saturday and Sunday, since there are more users online during the weekend. People love Facebook polls and contests. (Find more examples here and here and check this info graphic.)
