    I am considering building a facebook page of 1million+ followers .... but that's not easy especially if you do it properly and work on getting targeted followers.

    Is anybody else in this position in Jun 2015? Thinking about really growing a FB page.

    What's my idea behind it?
    Well you can only get so much consistent traffic from a search engine.... I need more traffic.

    My plan to increase traffic:

    1.More quality posts - However I notice the posts themselves rank well for a period but sometimes have a tendancy to drop after a few months.

    2. Improved rankings

    THIS ALONE probably WON'T help me break even

    So:

    3. Grow Facebook page to 1 million targeted followers:
    If I continue to get an organic click through rate on facebook posts of 0.005% then one post could bring 5000 visitors.

    But the future of facebook reach is a grey area. I seen somebody mention a 0.001% organic reach for the future. Surely FB can't &Uck everybody over who PAID them & worked hard to build followers.

    So I would love to see a poll on this:
    Is it worthwile to spend any time and money building FB followers?

    Maybe I should concentrate on expanding on every poplular social media platform but for me facebook is the one that I have the ability to grow.

    Another thing to note... I read a report stating that the organic facebook reach drops significantly for pages with higher number of followers. This doesn't make sense to me... if anything the reach should multiply. So my theory on that is that those pages in the studies had a high amount of non targeted or fake likes... but I could be wrong.. maybe the fb system does make the organic reach drop for BIG pages for some strange reason.

    You don't have any idea hot to grow your page. I suggest you also get into other social platforms don't stick with only one.
    FB is still good source of traffic but you need to consider that is highly unlikely you will get to 1m with no $$ and no plan.

    I can tell you after you get to 40k+ you will start growing naturally but its hard to get to the 40K at least it was for me.

    My page is 53k+ and its growing 3k per month maybe I will get to 1M before I die.

    Who said I don't have any plan or idea how to grow? :rolleyes:
    That is not an issue - the question is if I should, not how I can.

    But I guess you are relatively happy with the organic reach of you big page right?

    I think they can &uck everybody and they will if it suits them, you've already spent you money and it's irrelevant to them if you complain or not. For this reason alone, not being actually in control of your page I wouldn't invest too much into growing it to 1mil. If you have other methods of doing it that doesn't include dumping 5 figures and up in fb ads go for it, otherwise i'd suggest you invest all that into something that you have more control over.
