    I've noticed that the posts that manage to gain engagement in the first couple of days usually start getting more and more reach. And people also say that more engagement means more reach. So I'm wondering, what happens if I buy posts likes (from these SMM sellers)? Will those fake post likes help with organic reach into tricking FB to think that people are liking the post content? Or is FB smarter than that?

    Secondly, will it risk my page in any way?

    Yes it will increase engagement and clicks but don't get the likes on your main page

    This is an effective tactic in my experience. Do this on posts/pics and not your profile. It will indirectly build your profile because users will want to see what else you offer. Think of your posts as tiered link building for your main site.

    I didn't quite fully understand you or maybe you didn't understand me. Basically, the post likes that I am talking about buying from SMM sellers are mostly fake ones or inactive users so those likes are usually worthless except to spike up the stats. While a person like you and me probably won't be able to point out fake likes and we'll think "wow, this post has 1000 likes, must be popular", but will FB think the same? Because if FB thinks a post is being liked by people, it puts it in front of more and more people. What I am thinking about doing is the following:

    Make a post.
    Buy likes for that post from SMM sellers (to increase post stats).
    Advertise that post on FB ads.

    Now what I want to know is if FB ads will work better solely because the post will already have hundreds of like/engagements? Will FB think "this is a popular post so lets put it in front of as many people as possible"? The simple question is; will FB ads perform better on a post that already has hundreds of likes on it?

    P.S. Both of you said not to buy these likes for the page. What's the reason?

    I've not seen a post shared in this fashion go down. The only way to know, is to try.
    Buying fake followers to jumpstart campaigns or social proof is your choice. I get more engagement with ads targeting tier 3 countries before targeting the US. This way you walk away with legitimate, interested users instead of simple numbers.
