    Don't bother, FB pages are mostly dead. Trust me, unless you want to spend a lot of money there is little to no value to most fan pages.

    Youre saying its impossible to grow a fan page organically? I understand it might not be the most profitable but if there is a way without dumping money into it like instagram or twitter, id like to try.

    Low reach means:
    1) Hard (next to impossible) to grow from scratch
    2) Number of fans almost useless, as your posts will only get to a very small fraction of them
    3) $$$ wasted to grow your fans number and $$$ wasted to get your posts shown to these fans

    In IM I was always of the impression that there is always a way. I can't believe that Facebook is completely useless. There has got to be some way to use it.

    Absolutely, nothing is dead or impossible in IM. I still know some people who are making money from MySpace which pretty much proves the point. It would be a lot more easier to switch on to different methods as you can make a lot more if you put into something else which has got more potential.

    So, if you're a lot of money and don't mind waiting few months to see the money flowing in, I don't think you will face any kind of problems. No matter what people say, its still the best and the most popular Social Networking site anyway.

    To begin with, I would suggest you to check out the threads in this section. There are some cool tricks and tips which you must know to get a kick start. Check these:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...2-zero-hero-facebook-milking-challange-6.html (OP Disappeared after a while but you can check the last few updates to see what he did wrong and learn from that)

    And depending upon how much money you're willing to invest and what methods you have in mind, check out the tools and services being sold in the BHW Marketplace. Some of them are really cool and would help you a lot in scaling up your methods and raking in some good amount cash if you know what you're doing!

    I'm not saying it's impossible, I'm saying for most people they're useless. There are still are people making money from FB pages, but probably 1% of what they used to be.

    Most of this is either outdated or not about growing a FB page. its about FB ads. still really good posts though. I always have a hard time finding really good threads to do research on this forum. i guess i dont have the good search skills lol.

    I have a page right now that I started today and I am struggling to even get it to 25 fans to get insights and to be able to give it a facebook address.

    I have a Facebook page with almost 30K real likes. It gets above average engagement because I post great content and only post links when I have to.

    I don't rely on just on FB though. I use YouTube, Snapchat, FB, and Twitter in that order. I do have Instagram but not trying to grow it anymore.

    My "niche" is music. I built my page organically to 2.2k likes by target messaging people on chatrooms and showing them my music, if they liked I would talk to them one on one then get there email addresses and if they used FB I would ask them to like my page in exchange for a free download to a song. (I still do this) but this was when I was focusing on facebook.

    Anyway when I got to 2.2k I was able to get my page verified which helped me gain a lot of likes and fans.

    Not sure if you want to do that way because it was a lot of work and wasn't about the FB likes it just came in the process. I would get between 10-50 likes a day. Just from the messages.

    Maybe that can inspire you in some way haha.
