    I have a small business in Mexico in the travel niche. It´s basically a mix out of bargain and daily deal website for travel offers. I did some PR, get traffic by Google and from some Mexican magazines.

    Now I want to invest in our Facebook Fanpage and get some likes. So far the best I got were 0,25$/like for people who liked Expedia and Co. as well what seems to me crazy expensive.

    I also thought about doing some fake raises/competitions for travel but not quite sure if Facebook will ban our fanpage. I need the likes as social proof (so people will trust us more if they see one of their friends liked our website) and I want to win reach.

    Any suggestion with a specific example where it already worked? You know any fanpage in the travel niche that acquired lots of fans for cheap?

    Invest on your Facebook campaigns targeting groups talking about traveling
    groups IDs are cheaper cuz they have close to none competition

    Run Facebook ads and target some countries, and you could get real likes at 2 cents per like.

    I suggest you not to go for fake likes of bot. You can promote your page on relevant Facebook pages and groups. You can also invite your friends to like your page.

    It's Mexico, there isn't too much travel talk in Facebook groups. We already get 100 visitors a day, so I wonder more how I can reach 10.000 a day. A visitor has less than 10% value of an US-visitor. So I'm looking for more scalable things.

    @Gogreen
    Our product is only for the Mexican market

    Obviously I don't go for bots (because Bots don't book a vacation that often...) :)

    You can gain good followers for no money if you put a little time into it. Just go and join a lot of groups in your niche( take it easy don't do all the joining in one day). After that start posting great posts on your page and share that post to all the groups you have joined ( share it by clicking the share button in the post and choosing the group, don't just post the link in those groups) If your content is good all those shares will start to bring in a lot of new and highly relevant likes. Ideally also get 1-2k fake likes before doing this so people trust your page more.

    Better pay facebook to promote your page by boosting post's or so, instead of buying those fake likes

    Well these days most fan pages have mexican fans may be you could try out for some small promotions on pages in your niche or pages having mexican fans.
    Even if you egt 20-30 likes that's like around $10 for you and better than facebook ad's.
    Split test different methods and see which one works.
    You can try promotions on some viral mexican pages,website banners,tumblr,facebook pages in travel and adventure or photography niche.

    Where is the Blackhat spirit? :)

    I remember that it was possible to get fans for 0,01$ with "Clic here if you like dogs" ads. All of this stuff is over?
    Any information on fake competitions?

    What are the guys doing who have Facebook group with millions of likes that spam their fans with Amazon aff offers? How did they get their fans?

    An example: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Do-You-Even-Lift/119850968188016?fref=ts
    This guy posts only BS and every week a few affiliate offers. Do they have any tricks to get the fans for cheap? I don't think he invested 30k in Fans (because he probably makes just a few hundred bucks from it).
