For any small business, getting your first 101 likes or followers can be a challenge. But if you follow these three simple steps you will reach your first 101 likes before you know it.
1. Invite your friends
This is the simplest way to get new followers and build your social community. Just think back to all of those times that your friends have sent you request to like their pages…well this is the time that they get to return the favor and like your new page. Inviting your friends to like your page is a great way to build support around your small business fan page and is the fastest way to reach 101 likes.
2. Post engaging content
In order to keep and attract new fans to your page, you will want to post relevant and engaging content that promotes your business and entertains your followers. If you’re just getting started, I recommend that you keep it simple and easy. Try posting 2 pictures a week of something that your fans and followers would really enjoy. Always make sure that you are posting content that is relevant and appropriate to your current and future followers. As you become more advanced in your campaigns, you will want to incorporate a social media tool to help better understand when to post and what to post.
3. Facebook Advertising
I know this is scary to most small businesses out there just trying to keep up with everything online, but it can be simpler than you think. In fact, Facebook advertising is a great way for small businesses to reach more people in a targeted way. For as little $1 day, you can create ads that will promote your page to people all around the world, or to people only within your local community…its up to you. Facebook advertising allows you to specifically target particular demographics and zone in on your future customers. If you do decide to do paid advertising on Facebook, you will want to measure and track your campaign results with a free and easy social media tool, like those offered at HubNami.com.
