    Hey everyone,

    So I have a couple of Instagram account with small follower bases, ranging from 5k-20k followers but with really good engagement because myself and a friend run all of the accounts manually and target specific active audiences rather than using bots or spam. We're looking to expand our current accounts to Facebook as well, but where do we begin to get traffic to our pages, we've created the "pages" but don't know how to go about actually getting people to see our posts and whatnot, where on instagram you can go through and follow different people who enjoy your niche, on Facebook it seems a lot more difficult. I'm not looking for any quick success guide, just a few tips on how to gain genuine active "Likers" on FB for someone who literally has not a single clue. Any and all tips or guides will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    You can do promoted Page Ads to get tons of new likes on your Facebook Pages. It is a great way to grow your pages, you have to spend some money though.

    You have to pull in the right gathering of people and connect with them in ways that adjust to your business objectives. Getting good results on Facebook involves equal parts common sense, understanding how Facebook works, and using free social media monitoring tools to help you fine-tune your page. #BuyRelMarketing

    Facebook page promotion is literally the BEST way to gain genuine, targeted likes and engagement.
    When running campaigns, focus on particular age group, keywords/interest, location, and creative banners/videos.
    Be creative with your ads; use eye-catching images/designs.
    Be precise with your target audience and make sure they are likely to be interested in your ads.

    Alright so I've taken your advice on this. I was actually already doing this before I even made the post just to test the water. I ran a picture for 24 hours that I thought would catch some serious attention in the groups that I targeted. It got almost 20% engagement in the amount that it reached, surprising number of likes, a couple shares and a few comments as well, but not one single person "Liked" the page meaning they won't see my future posts unless I promote them all. Any advice for driving specifically page likes in order to build the page to be able to consistently get likes, shares, comments and possibly end up going viral? I'm feeling as though due to my page not having many likes at all currently, people are less likely to like the page.

    I have similar questions to what the OP asked, FB Ads on posts just gives the particular post more interactions (likes & comments) but you just get few page likes.

    Have you tried focusing on "promoting the page," and not specifically boosting the posts?
    Page promotion's main purpose is to gain like (users) from targeted audience through Facebook.

    You should activity post your page posts in relevant facebook groups. And do go for a little paid campaign.

    you can click the list of likes on the picture you ran and invite those people to like your page. you will see and "invite" button next to their name, you need to be an admin.

    So theoreticly speaking all we need to do, is to get a post to go viral and after that we only invite all the thousand of likers? Cause on facebook its relativly easier to get a Post to go viral or semiviral-ish then on other plattforms.

    precisely, that's all you'll need to do. although Facebook imposes hourly limits to the number of invites you can send. if you send too many, you'll be blocked for sending more invites for a while.

    We have successfully used FB Marketing Automation to get targeted friends on multiple accounts via the scraping and friends adding tools. then suggesting for the new friends to like your page and adding them to a group that you should really create related to your page seems to be a very good approach.

    This is a long term approach but you are after all building a long term advertising platform so it is worth the effort and the wait.

    Do you have any numbers to the hourly/day limits ? I bet that motivation niche is a charm to grow that way, altough hard to monetize.

    Thats what ive been doing for a couple weeks steady grow but really a pain in the ass if you do it manualy.

    Here are some numbers for the people wondering.

    4000 friends 2000 on each account
    Added to the group
    Slowly posted page post to the group
    Hardly any engagement on page likes but group was blowing up getting 150 members a day organic.

    Page suggested to 4k friends, 600 likes in 5 days

    So you invited the people to the group as well suggested the page to them?

    Do you know if a software can automate this process? Perhaps Massplanner in the premium version?

    Exactly.

    There are automation tools for that, but in the long run manual is better, cause you gonna lose alot of accounts. Dont even try to go with out sim verfication accounts they get banned instantly.

    I currently just have 3 accounts on my iPhone, which is ok I guess.

    I am looking forward to buy an old smartphone, with 5-10 sim cards.

    i really don't know, Danisahne. i've read here somewhere someone stating they send between 20 to 50 per hour. i seem to be doing fine with 100. might depend on how aged your account is.
