By following these easy tips, your business will build a Facebook following in no time!
1. Tag your page from your personal profile
Make sure it’s easy for people to access your page. If you tag your business page, it makes it easier for friends to visit your page, like it and then share it with their friends.
2. Link your profile to your page
Going along with the previous step, if you have friends who are searching to find your personal account, by linking it with your business they will be directed to your business as well as your personal page.
3. Add your business page in your e-mail signature
Think about the number of e-mails you send a day, if your business page is included in your e-mail signature, each person who receives an e-mail from you will be exposed to your Facebook page.
4. Run a contest
People love competition. If your Facebook page is hosting a contest, it’s bound to reach a wide audience that will help you promote your product or service in a fun way.
5. Add a like box to your website
If your website has a lot of traffic, a like box is a quick, simple way to build a Facebook following. Once you have a like box, you can see if the likes are coming from your website.
6. Remind your friends to like and share
Facebook now has a “share” button with all its posts so by reminding your friends/followers to share your page, there’s now a simple way for them to do it! This will help your business reach an even larger audience.
