    I'm an independent filmmaker who wants to promote a low budget feature film that I'm working on. Basically it's the facebook fan page for the movie. I know a little about online promoting but I'm no pro.

    I'm not spamming any links on the fanpage or anything like that or trying to do conversions or really monetize it. Just want to build up the likes/fans/followers so when the movie comes out, people might follow it and check it out or buy a DVD. Doing sort of a grass roots following on it.

    I don't have a lot of capital right now but was wondering if anyone would care to help me out in any way or possibly even give me a nice deal suggesting the page to their facebook friends lists? Right now the page looks pretty pathetic with less than 40 likes.

    If you want more info, PM me and I'll send you more info on it and from there you can decide if you want to help or not.

    If someone is willing to help me out in a big way, I'll let you read the script. Can send you links to past video work online and links to IMDb movies I've done before. If you can get me really good results, possibly even give you a special thanks in the end movie credits and on IMDb for the movie. I'd also recommend and refer my filmmaker friends to you and possibly down the line use you again in a paid capacity for online promotions. But this is where it starts, just trying to get this first big project off the ground.

    set up a twitter and make some posts - wait a day or two

    go to twiends dot com and set up your info, but uncheck the "follow on twitter" in settings

    then follow people on the twitter tab to get credits

    those credits will be used to get you fan page likes in return

    so it's like trading twitter follows for facebook likes

    By "working on" do you mean it hasn't been done yet. If you drop me a pm for what you nwould like to have maybe we can work something out, also could you explain what kind of genre is your movie and rating. I believe those are important factors as you will have to target certain audience.

    Wanted to follow up with some results. I tried out twiends and did exactly like trooper said. I followed people on one of my twitter accounts in exchange for people following me on facebook. I noticed that twiends seems to be primarily used for twitter increases so I had to bump my offer to 4 points per facebook like, to get faster results. Eventually I bumped it up to 5 points, then tried 6 points to clear out my points and log out. I ended up with 100 new followers on facebook in a few hours using twiends. Not bad for a free service.

    As far as the facebook accounts that liked me, many were surprisingly legit. People are using their real fb accounts. There were a few who were using fake accounts though. You could tell because if you clicked on them on fb, they had no friends and 3,000+ page likes. Some don't even have the decency to set their page to private so it almost looks like you created fake accounts to like yourself. lol

    Either way, still not bad and something to definitely consider with no budget. Over a few days, you could easily get 1k+ bump. Also, I found out a service online where you can buy fb likes and one of the stipulations is that they must be an admin on your page. Well that happens to be the only way you can use twiends, you have to be an admin on the page so it can be connected. So I'm guessing some paid services are even using twiends secretly to backfill their clients with likes. :D

    I'm going to try a few other things and will report back if I have some good results.

    Just wanted to follow up that I tried tiriinx on uphype dot com. If you sort by highest rated you'll find him. He's also a member on the forum if you want to pm him. For $8 I got around 500 likes in 2 days and growing on my page. I know it depends on your page so you may get more or less. But overall for the money it was definitely a nice bump so my page looks more active. Thanks so much Tiriinx! :D

    I'm going to be trying a few other services to push it up further and will let you all know if I have luck with them as well.

    Thanks for the info. I think you will get more likes after few days and it is a good value for $8. I might try him by myself. :)

    Keep us updated.

    I've tried a number of new paid services lately where they send out suggestions but no movement at all lately. It's like I'm flushing money down the toilet no matter who I try. Looks like the good old days are over and FB is making it harder and harder for people to promote stuff on their website. It's really frustrating!

    I think it's the new FB rule where you can't send out more than 49 suggestions at a time. What a horrible rule. I know some people know ways around it, but fb is hellbent on getting people to pay for their overprice ads that nobody clicks on.

    Honestly, you are doing exactly what you are mentioning on this post. Flushing money down the drain. You gotta understand that those kinda services are shitty, they arent really going to get you the kind of fans you need or want. You are promoting a film not a cpa offer, even then most of those providers are offering those services cause they are pretty much bombarding their fans with tons of other services as other people are placing orders with them.

    If it was just as easy as paying for services, then a lot of people here would have been rich by now by buying just services and flipping their money. Trust me there is still tons of money to be made off fb, you just havent been introduced to the right tactics.

    I will tell you that buying most of those services, except for fresh accounts, is not the way to go.

    You can actually do promotion by inviting friends to your fanpage but you would need to get fresh fans. Now if you cant do that then my best option would be for you to start spamming facebook fan pages and groups with your fanpage link , thats the old fashion way and it still works. You are better spending money doing that than on those services.

    You said "you found out a service online where you can buy fb likes", where is that? I'm in the same game just with facebook votes. Can't believe how hard it is to pay people to vote for you.
