How the Hell Do I have 12k Reach and Only 20 Likes???

    I am building an Instagram account. I decided to use facebook groups to promote this Instagram account. so I thought why not build a facebook fanpage as well.

    So here is what I have done. I have Mass Planner doing all the heavy lifting. I have around 30 groups in my niche and one facebook account. I also have one instagram account.

    I post a pic to instagram and use ifttt . com to post it manually to the FB fanpage. Mass Planner checks every 20 mins for a post and when it does, it posts it to the groups.

    I get pretty good likes, shares and comments. my Instagram posts do well as well. Tons of likes and shares, comments and follows. BUT NOT TO MY FB FANPAGE!

    I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong. I think it has something to do with facebook and instagram. when I post a pic on instagram, Ifttt sends it to the fanpage. MassPlanner picks up the link and sends it to the groups. It should be a link from the facebook fanpage because that is where Mass Planner is getting the post from but I think it is sending people straight to Instagram.

    My reach for the last week has been 12k. My engagements have been 1400. I am currently sitting at 20 likes. What the hell am I doing wrong?

    anyone have any good ideas?

    Spamming groups.
    Although if you are getting likes on posts I would suggest looking for a thread in blackhat that shows you how to invite people that like your posts

    I've noticed over the years that people don't like pages anymore, try posting gallerys to grow the page. Add a "like this page for more posts" at the end

    I tried looking. I did find out how to suggest my page to 5000 people through email if I had access to a list that large. I dont however know how to suggest or invite people who have liked my posts.

    Hello friend. I am sorry for that but want to first tell you that such like things for sure do happen. I am happy in a way that you can now be able to state the problem at hand and then try working on it. The bigger problem you are facing is that you can not be able to retain the visitors. It thus mean that you have the content that is not that good. You therefore need to make sure that what they are looking for is probably what they will get.

    I am willing to admit my content sucks if it werent for the fact that its doing amazing on instagram. I am litterally posting the same thing on fb fanpage as I am on instagram. If my content sucks, I can live with that and move on.
    All of my content is original. I see what is working on other large instagram accounts and make an original post based off posts from large accounts that are getting thousands of likes. my instagram account currently has 2k followers and I am getting around 300 to 500 likes per post.
    People are liking my posts and reacting to them on FB as well. When they are posted to the groups, I am thinking that when they click on the link, it doesnt take them to my FB fanpage, I think it takes them straight to instagram. I dont know why it does this, but its the only thing I can think of.

    So I'm getting a lot of engagement from the posts in the group that I posted in. One of those people that like comment or share in the group post very few if hardly at all or actually liking the page. Some of the group post will get up to 100 likes is there anyway to get an invitation to those people?

    Hey!
    Recently a friend was showing me screenshots of Facebook post, It had 16k reach approx. 20 likes but it's content was like: "share it to win…" so it had 80 shares. So I think this like amount is pretty normal.
    Please share content of post so we can help you because I think it's all about the content.

    Yea I'm not sharing any posts or content. It's not a bribe post. It's post in a passionate niche that will generate likes and shares.

    Then sadly It will be hard for me to help because of lack of information. I wish you the best.

    let's say it's humor. The posts are shared a lot, liked and commented on but not a lot of likes.

    Yes, I recently noticed this trend a lot also. Posts are being shared and commented but not liked.
    I think the reason is pretty simple and so obvious we cannot see it; too much information, too much posts etc.
    There may be a solutions to this; something really unique.

    Your quality must not be good enough that it converts.

    Good enough to grab thousands of likes and shares.
    Seems like you don't know crap.

    No , By sharing in the groups your reach will go higher and you may get tons of shares and likes on those posts, but you can't invite them to like your page.The one thing you can do is make people click on the post (use galleries or videos) so if they then like the post you can invite them to like the page. Just keep posting and if few of your posts will go viral you will start getting likes on posts and thus likes on your page.

    There is a difference between good enough to like/share and good enough to subscribe/complete further actions. The other possibility is that there is an issue for your visitors being able to be organically led to your fan page. As in they're seeing it as a hassle to go/get to your fan page.

    Is all of the content you posted branded with your fanpage/fanpage link? Is it easy enough for your visitors to go and like your page? Do they have to go through a bunch of extra steps that cuts into their flow when seeing the content?

    I use pic posts. I mostly post memes. I am not selling anything at this moment. my goal is to build up a large FB fanpage and monetize it then with book or tee's and other niche related stuff. I have seen other large fanpages in my niche and they dont use galleries. I feel like this is a move in the right direction though.

    I use massplanner to share to groups. it has the option to add a sig to the posts. I ussually put something in the post like, Please like our page, and then the page url.

    There can be many things that can be done to get page likes, If you have good number of fb accounts then you can use them to add friends from the groups and then invite them to like your page or make a group in your niche & add them there (make sure you have 2-3 admin accounts of the group), there is a journey here on which the guy was doing the same thing and driving traffic to his viral site, look for it ,you will learn a thing or two.
