    I have a fitness page with 4000 targeted fans acquired with facebook ads over a 2 week period. Since the ads ended, my page gets about 2-5 likes per day. I post about 2-3 times a day and each post get a get about 60 likes and 40 shares but no fcking likes? WTF? all these likes and shares and viral views and barely a like here and there? How are those other fitness pages able to get 100k likes? Hughhh

    you said you acquired those fans in two weeks time ....If you want to see more likes (real likes) ..you would have to wait to get more targeted fans so that you can compare you self to those Pages which generate likes in that volume.

    Try to think for a second "what would I share". If you think there is a post that you'd share, post it in the page.

    Uh? I have laser TARGETED fans acquired via buying facebook ads. At the rate my page is growing organically, it will take a lifetime to even get 10,000 fans. What is wrong here? Is facebook doing this on purpose to force me to buy ads?

    That's what I've been doing. I'm getting likes and shares on the posts but no likes on the page.

    Hmm, I will try this, looks catchy. I've tried asking fitness questions before but got likes and not many comments.

    Increasing likes for your page - Walljacking doesnt work also... if you like lots of comments = 1000s you dont get any likes for your page? Whats going on? has FB stopped this?

    cheers

    Guys FB is awesome, you just have to figure out some things. And don't post something you already saw on Fb or anywhere...go to Tumblr and search by your keyword (tag), you will have loads of good photos there, but don't go with good, go with awesome ones and you will see how fast your page will grow

    Sorry but there are many fitness pages with over 200k and they are not official, fitness girls, fitness selfies, bodybuildig and fitness etc... It's not about official/unofficial, it's about years... Before it was much easier that our fb page or post go viral than today, since FB went on stock market they are trying to earn more money and they are simply making up tools which will restrict pages to go viral very easy...

    You very well could have laser targeted fans but.... Ya still got to make posts that people REALLY want to click the Like button on. Think about it... What do YOU click Like on? What do your friends click Like on?

    A simple post about this or that is not going to get a lot of Likes. You got to post stuff that makes people go WOW that's cool! That's funny! That's crazy!

    go to the other fb fitness pages , post something stupid , question on of there posts , dont be harsh just get noticed, then people will wonder who you are and view your own fitness page ..... = likes or not but they will be free and real what ever u get.

    eg ... a post as said above, 10 veggies you saw it on another fb page , you go on there saying you dont agree , come to look at my reasoning on my page , no links as you will be banned off the other pages.

    I guess the same goes for walljacking - its a naff strategy! better to do it normally - there are no quick easy methods - it requires hard work!

    Bro, did you read my post? I'm getting good amount of likes and shares on the page posts but no new fans, barely a couple daily. There is something wrong here.

    WTF are you talking about dude. You're not even making sense. There are a shitload of stupid fitness fb pages with 100k likes that don't even have a website or a product, just pictures of sexy girls. I have a real fitness site with great information and I interview real fitness models and post their pictures which gets crazy likes and shares but page likes are not growing. I will not spend a dime on facebook ads again.

    I read it but apparently I read it wrong. Are your posts that are getting likes give people a reason to become a fan?

    The pretty girl type pics do give a reason to become a fan. To see more in their newsfeed and to find the page again.

    This goes back to my original answer. A simple post about this or that is not going to get a lot of Likes. You got to post stuff that makes people go WOW that's cool! That's funny! That's crazy!

    So maybe I did read it write after all. :)

    Keep tracking what kind of posts get the best response. And try to post more of the similar ones.
