    They don't help anyone. Not sales anyway, only the appearance of popularity with the intention of grabbing real people through it. Makes more sense to get real people to begin with regardless.

    The main theory is that facebook likes = social proof and it helps conversions. You should test though. Doesn't work in all markets. YMMV

    The two main reasons are credibility and social signals. When you buy likes it looks like you have a bunch of fans when other people see your site and page, so other people are more likely to see you as a credible business they can take seriously. Social signals are indications to google that people are liking your site which theoretically translates into looking like you're more popular than you are, for seo purposes.

    But either way, don't buy fake likes. There's a guy on here that I bought real likes from and they look much more natural. Also facebook is a lot smarter now and they'll delete any fake fans you buy.

    People are more inclined to like a page when it already has quite a few likes.

    Would you rather eat at the restaurant that's empty or the one that's busy?

    I bought about 3000 likes from real people. They are slowly dropping off but the same amount are liking each day. From the names and countries of origin they appear to be friends of the likes I bought. I mainly bought them so on my website the little like box looks good, but having real people like it because they see their friends have is bonus.

    They are pretty handy to make a page credible.People tend to trust and follow pages that have high amounts of likes.

    If you see a business with 1 like are you going to like it?

    Or if you see a business with 2000+ likes, there are more chance that you will hit that like button too.

    It really helps with bringing in real people and artificially makes your business look successful like other
    people are interested. By doing this you increase your conversion rates and consumer confidence in your product.
