    1st of all i want to thank the creator of Black Hat World, I been lurking this site for about 1 1/2 months , and finally today i registered, to join in with this great community full of knowledge.

    I am the marketing director of prime auto sales in Phoenix,Az (i would put a link to our website , but im not sure if i can),we have a website and facebook fan page, im working on our fan page, here is what i have done so far, if any one cares to add ideas to get for likes to our fan page your more than welcomed.

    â–ºCreated Prime auto sales fan page
    â–ºIn that fan page i have our contact information,links to our whole inventory and finance application, also i update the page every day with information regarding vehicles and pics.
    â–ºI have 2 other facebook accounts, one is my personal account the other is a regular face book page with the name of "Prime Cars", from these facebook accts i promote our fan page with funny pics with our fanpage link to it.
    â–ºFrom the regular Prime Auto page i suscribed to large groups, every once in while i will like or comment them , from my Prime cars facebook acct

    What other ideas do you all suggest to get likes, i prefer if they are organic likes and not the use of bots or buying them. Thank you.

    Sajor,

    Participating and actively engaging people on social media is the way to build a following. Whether or not your progress is typical will depend on your niche. For instance if your target market is not active on that platform, it may take longer to grow the page.

    Other methods that you could try would be to promote the page to your other connections, use FB advertising to try and get more likes, and promote the page on other web properties. Make videos and fan-gating them is also another strategy. You could also fan-gate other content, for instance some type of information that your market might want access to. An email blast to a targeted list, a contest for likes, or some type of free offer in exchange for likes.

    Check out these fan gating examples for inspiration,

    Here are some more ideas,

    Remember that getting the likes is the first step and not a measure of success. Naturally the ultimate goal is to get people to buy cars however a good metric to look at when determining how effective you are at building the brand online is the number of people talking about this in your facebook page. Try and get that number to go up.

    Hope that helps,

    Shawn
