I recently came across a facebook viral script that is a wordpress plugin. You simply install it, set your facebook api key/secret, and set the URL you want people to like. This script works by popping up every x amount of visits with a box that welcomes the user to the site and asks them to show their support by clicking the like button. You could also write good content or have videos and say something like "To view this video or content, please click the like button". The possibilities with this script are endless. When I first started using the script, my thought was to try to receive likes on my websites page, because this would bring me targeted traffic. What I learned from testing is that while someone may have an interest in something, their good friends interests or thoughts may be completely different. I realized this when going through my personal facebook profile my likes and interests for the most part are completely different then my friends. I still have a lot in common with friends, but they may not be into the same movies as me, or like the same cars, or they may not play games online, or they may not be into internet marketing.... You get the point. This tells me that promoting my website via the viral like box was not reaching it's targeted audience. Therefore, I was wasting my time.. What did I do to fix this? I created a Facebook Fan/App Page relevant to the niche I was promoting. Now I am not going to go into detail on how to create a facebook fan/app page, because there are tutorials everywhere. I am starting to play around with facebook application "pages" and am seeing much more potential here. After you have created your fan page or application page, you need to add this page as the like "link" on the viral script. Why use a Fan/App Page instead of my website? When you build Fan or App pages, Facebook gives you a lot of exposure and tools for marketing your product. Think about it this way. Every visitor you get is going to be targeted. They are going to like your page. If they like your page, they are added to a "list" of individuals that you can bulk message at any time. Facebook messages have an 80% open rate. You will never receive this type of open rate with emails or any other type of marketing for that example. With facebook you have total control over your traffic. Facebook creates a direct connection from you to potential customers. That is what makes facebook the shit If you have any questions please ask in this thread as I do not have enough time to go through and answer private messages. I can't post links so you will have to search for it. It's called "Facebook Viral Plugin" for wordpress.
