    Okay so I ran facebook ads for a week. I sent $25 and got 1,628 followers. Awesome, right? I think so. Anyway, I stopped the ads thinking that I should get followers organically now through searches and shares. None. 3 days later and I still have 1,628. Am I not doing something, or are Facebook ads seriously the only way to grow a page?

    It's the same for me. I've got like, 4k likes on the page but that's it.
    I believe FB made an algorithm or something to slow things down for us, so we have to invest in something.
    But that's just an assumption, of course. ;)

    Facebook is making it harder to get organic reach for fanpages even to fans of the page itself. The chances of getting NEW fans organically is even lower.

    Doing paid ads is not the only way to get likes, but you need viral marketing to grow it organically. It can be in the form of great content, contests or giveaways. Anything with a chance to go viral will get you likes organically.

    Facebook is really under alot of pressure to make money. I think going forward that's the only way to grow your page - buy ads.

    Unless your current followers are sharing posts with their friends you will not see growth anywhere near what you will receive from Facebook ads.
    Getting an organic response takes great titles/and useful content that makes your fans want to show all of their friends.
    I look at pages I follow and what posts of theirs i just have to respond to then copy that formula and make tweaks for my own audience.

    Unless more people are sharing your content with their friends then it may be hard to experience organic growth

    In these days is hard to get organic followers on facebook pages. Also, depending on the niche. But they are looking for money
