    Introduction

    If you're a Facebook Ads expert, then allow me to save you some time: you won't learn anything from this post. This is a beginner's guide because this is so easy to do.

    I'm not a Facebook ads guru, I just ran a test for myself and figured it could help someone else out. If you know how to get likes from Facebook ads cheaper, then don't flame me, share the knowledge in your reply.

    I've seen a lot of people seeking cheap Facebook page likes and paying fair amounts of money for bot likes from various services. I've also seen lots of people complaining about getting banned after using such services. I decided to run a test using Facebook Ads to see about getting likes for cheap and think I succeeded pretty well.

    The Method

    The method is simple, create a page like campaign but only target people in countries that are inexpensive to target. For this ad set, I targeted these countries:
    • India
    • Malaysia
    • Liberia
    • Pakistan
    • Thailand
    • Philippines
    • Bulgaria
    • Bangladesh
    • Kenya
    • Egypt
    • Romania
    • Algeria
    You can find lists of inexpensive countries to target by Googling. Here's one such list I found (https://jerrybanfield.com/facebook-ads-low-cost-country-list/). I did specify interests which brought my reach down a bit, but I figured why not try to somewhat target people that might possibly interact with my content.

    The Results:

    As of the screenshot below, 241 likes for $2.07.

    Considerations:

    Some things to keep in mind with this method:
    1. These likes probably still have a fair number of bots mixed in just by pure chance.
    2. I imagine engagement from these likes will still be very low, but at least the probability of interaction exists, whereas bots are almost guaranteed to not interact with you.
    3. You may end up paying more using this method than some services, but at least I can't imagine Facebook banning someone for doing this.
    4. These page likes should be treated as purely cosmetic. I would not pump a Facebook page with likes of this sort with the intent of making money directly from them. You can probably leverage the social proof of these likes, but that's about it.

    Yeah, I didn't even set the bid amount. I figured the interactions on it would be so good that I would naturally get a really low bid amount which turned out to be the case. The more effective your ad, the lower you'll pay because it's more profitable for Facebook to display your ad. If your ad isn't attractive at all, and doesn't generate high interaction, then you have to pay more so FB can make their bank.

    If you set the bid amount and your ad doesn't work very well, then FB just stops showing your ad. It takes a while to learn the ropes, but keep practicing and you'll figure it out. That's the nice thing about this method. Any ad I run for those countries generates a lot of interaction, and drastically decreases my cost per engagement.

    Yes. I know free is ideal, but "free" likes take a lot of time. You gotta pay to play :)

    This is basically like buying fake likes.
    You cannot sell anything to people from these countries. It is not that they are clever not buying your thing. They just don't have money.

    I'm not insulting them or anything. It is that currency value is very low.

    Edit: Just read point 4 of considerations. Cool method.

    Update:

    Here are my current results: 645 page likes for $5.53.

    [​IMG]

    And looking at a country-by-country breakdown, it looks like Bangladesh and Liberia are my engagement rate winners, with Liberia being half the cost of Bangladesh. Pakistan and India are surprisingly my most expensive, but looking at the data, it appears that is because of a low engagement percentage. Perhaps my page just doesn't resonate with my targeted audience at all there.

    Algeria has relatively low engagement, but still only costs about 1 cent per like, so I'm guessing that Algeria would be a very low cost target if you could resonate with them better than I have. My ad is super basic. It simply asks a dumb question that just about anyone would say "yes" to, then says if you agree, then you'll like this page.

    Update:

    1,003 likes @ $8.56

    Not much has changed regarding the country engagement. Bangladesh is leading it far-and-away at about 1 cent per like.

    You can increase its performance by posting some viral video and create engagement campaigns.

    So far 160 Page Likes with 1.27 eur. Kinda like this method a lot as it looks legit for a starting company to gain likes but not having a FB page of 400 likes and suddenly out of nowhere a page with 3k likes for example. So if anyone else is still in doubt, I'd suggest you do it. I only used Algeria in my case, as an ad nothing special.. just a picture of our product and a description of our company.

    Update: 1,559 likes @ $13.39

    Cost per like for each update:

    5/13: $0.00859
    5/14: $0.00857
    5/15: $0.00853
    5/17: $0.00859 - a slight increase in costs.

    Pricing is staying roughly the same per like. The difference in pricing between May 15 and May 17 is only 6 cents more per thousand likes, so these aren't big cost fluctuations at all. So at the end of this experiment, I'd expect to receive about 2,500 likes.

    That's awesome Pherkan! I'm glad it's working for you as well :). My ad was nothing special either. The other nice thing is that I don't think Facebook would ever ban a page for this. Whereas purchasing likes elsewhere has that risk. They don't care about people paying for likes, so long as it's Zuckerberg that's being paid. Hahahaha.

    i did this method a while back and got about 500 india likes for about $4.50
    in retrospect it was purely for cosmetic purposes
    bc not only are these worthless likes, but when i perused thru the profiles of everyone who clicked like, id say about 90% of them seemed to be bots
    now granted, this is a safer way to "buy likes" then buying from a blackhat spammer
    but the payoff was, essentially 90% cosmetic.

    Oh absolutely! I cover this in my considerations section of the original post. These Likes will not convert into sales. They should only be for cosmetic reasons (which is why people buy bot likes anyways).

    Thanks! Are you meaning compared to Bot likes, or compared to Facebook Ad rates? If you have some targeting suggestions, I'm all ears. I'd gladly lower the cost! If you're meaning compared to bot likes, then yeah. That's the insurance premium for not getting banned :). I'm choosing to pay the mafia so I don't get kneecapped.
