Facebook is sweeping the world by storm from the past few years. It is an American company founded in 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg, Eduardo Saverin, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes, who were Harvard students. It is designed to offer online social networking services. Facebook claims to have more than 2.5 billion active monthly users.
Facebook was initially limited by founders as a membership to Harvard students. Later it was expanded to other prominent universities around the world. The revolution took place in 2006 when anyone who claims to be least 13 years old is allowed to be a registered user.
Facebook can be accessed from anywhere in the world via devices such as personal computers, tablets, and smartphones having Internet connectivity. Facebook can be accessed easily by registering and creating a profile revealing relevant information about themselves. Once they are done with it, they can post pictures, text, multimedia, make friends, and set privacy. Users can also use various embedded apps, join common-interest groups, buy and sell items or services on Marketplace, and receive notifications of their Facebook friends’ activities and activities of Facebook pages they follow.
Facebook is not only a way of socializing but also a great networking tool for business. Creating a Facebook page generates more business for users.
Here are a few ways that you can increase your Facebook fanbase fast. Let’s have a look at them one by one.
Utilizing Facebook Widgets
This is one of the most natural methods to add more friends to your Fb page. This can be quickly done by adding your widget to your blog page or website. People can easily find you by clicking on your widget. But before that, it is very essential to know how you should place your widget strategically. You should put it in a spot where viewers can easily find it to receive a lot of traffic. In fact, you shall let them know how they can become a friend on Facebook. Guide them, and they will definitely use it.
Sending Email Invitations
Email can be sent to your contacts while looking at your address book. There is an extensive list of people with whom you have interacted via email. You can invite them to be friends on Facebook. Also, you can just add a link to your Facebook page at the bottom of your email signature. It will increase the click bate to your page, and you are more likely to make new friends on Facebook. This is an excellent option for networking and sharing.
Link your Twitter account
To automatically post your content to Twitter from Facebook, just link the Facebook fan page to your Twitter account. You have full privacy to choose what gets published, selecting from your photos, links, status updates, notes, and events. It is also recommended to promote your Facebook fan page on your Twitter background and possibly in your Twitter bio/URL field too.
Place Facebook Ads
Just with a nominal weekly/monthly budget, you can boost your fan count using Facebook’s own social ad feature. Its the most straightforward and most targeted traffic money can buy. A simple process needs to be followed to buy an ad, you have to scroll to the foot of any page inside Facebook and click the link at the bottom, which says “Advertising.”From there, just take a walk through the wizard, and you can get an excellent sense of how many Facebook users are in your specific target market.
You can call it a “tiny bio,” and I strongly suggest adding a link to your fan page. If you like to promote your fan page to your Facebook friends, there is a section under your personal profile section beside your photo where you can write something about yourself. That can be fancy, as well as simple. It all depends on you. There is a limit to writing only a few words, so be concise and break sentences so that it won’t cause difficulty in reading.
Showcase your Facebook at your Store
An excellent way to increase your fanbase is if you can showcase it. It can be a treat to someone eyes if they like your product/service offered. If you run a real business from premises, put a placard on the front desk letting your consumers know you’re on Facebook. You can instantly incentivize the customers to join your Facebook through their mobile/web and how you or your staff the confirmation for some instant reward.
I have got one from the Beccoss store.
Ask Fans to Tag Photos
If you host any live event, make sure you take plenty of photos(you can hire a professional photographer too), upload the photos to your fan page and encourage them to entertain themselves. This will push out into their wall and friends, a news feed, and a timeline. And the picture can be a great form of exposure.
