    So I am using NO BH methods for this and trying to grow my fan page...as big as possible.

    I received about 1000 friends from Fiverr, paying $5 a few weeks ago. That was the only thing I did just to make it look like it was growing.

    The stats on the page flat lined eventually and I started getting creative with posting updates to try and attract new fans. Keep in mind, this isn't a "Holy Sh*t look at this!!" page or I "Can't believe!!!" page or a celebrity page or any of that. This is a current, trend page (global sporting event)...that should have no reason not to go viral once it hits the tipping point.

    Heres my question:

    I have about 1500 fans now and it, for the first time in FB stats, showed an increase in fans from yesterday to today and is increasing again - about 20 people or so today opposed to yesterday at 15.

    No BH methods.

    I know this is "eh" to most of you guys out there with pages, but now I am looking to really get it going. This is a global audience I can deal with and I am not sure where to go from here.

    Buy profiles?
    Pay for profiles to have people suggested, etC?


    Biggest issue is the lack of credible sources when doing that - ie checking some of the fans I already have a sizable amount "Like" 2143109284123-8 other things too.

    Is a PPC going to pay off if I do it that way?

    Any help appreciated. This project also has 26 WP domains behind it and a JV opening up soon in the JV section for those that know a bit about WP and FB. I have 12 hours + and about $300 in already

    Don't start using Black Hat methods/break-fb-tos just keep waiting for the breakthrough when it will become a viral page, invite some of your friends or just start liking it on various accounts - when it becomes viral, the return will last much longer.

    My thoughts exactly. However, patience is running thin when it comes to seeing pages go up to the hundreds of thousands in a few weeks. I know the tipping point is near, everything is organic and I don't want to break the TOS but another method or a simple way of spreading small to pick up momentum?

    100 "Likes" in 9 days, 38 of them coming from the last 2? It shows a little progression in terms of getting the wheels going but I am used to a such a faster paced model and really want to wake up to 1000 new Likes on Monday, etc etc

    Yes but you have to think, this is a way which is not 'cheating'.
    And, undoubtfully it will take longer as you are doing it the 'right' way.

    To speed it up, perhaps post your page on some small-medium sized fan pages.
