    I've been a member of BHW for a while now and learned quite a bit from some of the helpful posts on here.
    Most of the time it's just some bits and pieces though since it seems like most people don't feel like spoonfeeding too much.
    However I feel like it's time for me to give back to the community by creating a complete tutorial on how to increase your success with facebook.
    Some parts of this tutorial have been mentioned in the past, but I haven't found any posts explaining the entire process I use so I'll give a shot at explaining it.


    For the people who are not willing to read through my entire post my method is as follows:
    1. Narrow down your audience
    2. Scrape FB emails / UIDS

    And then either:
    A.
    3. Create dummy accounts
    4. Invite scraped users to become your friend
    5. Suggest your page to them / Share posts from your pages

    B.

    3. Import the audience into your AD Manager
    4. Run a FB Ads Campaign




    Now some of the techniques I've implemented might already have been shared before, however this is a full guide that will show you how to get TARGETED likes on your facebook page.
    Personally I run some pages that are targetted toward a very specific group of people and this the only way to reach them. Ready? Let's gstart at the beginning!

    1. Narrow down your audience
    Since Facebook's userbase is currently at 1.32 billion users and page visibility has been decreasing for years now it's getting more and more difficult to reach the right audience and grow your following.
    Whether you are trying to promote a products, service, artist, ... the first thing to realise when doing facebook marketing is that more targeted = better. Since the amount of people that gets to see your post is linked to the page engagement by the initial post views having more targeted followers means that more users will be likely to like, share or comment on your post which will in turn increase it's visibility.

    So now that you see the relevance in having a targeted audience I will explain to you how we can find those users we're looking for.
    Luckily for us, facebook launched their 'Graph Search' function in March 2013 which allows users to use rather advanced search queries to find people, pages, groups & events they are looking for. Now since this search goes behind a bunch of the built in privacy settings mastering this search function will allow you to narrow your audience down as much as you like.

    Now here's a list of arguments you can include in your search:


    • Name
    • Current City
    • Friendship
    • Employer
    • School
    • Hometown
    • Gender
    • Relationship
    • Likes
    • Members of
    • Apps They Use
    • Visited
    • Checked-In
    • Languages
    • Religious Views
    • Political Views
    • Name
    • Age
    • Relationship status

    As you can see the possibilities are endless.
    Now the fun part is you can combine multiple arguments into one search query, for ex:
    Women who are not my friends and spoken English and like Amazon.com and are older than 20 and younger than 25 and live in London, United Kingdom

    I advice you to play around with this function if you're not familiar with it and try to narrow down you're audience as much as possible. This will significantly influence your CPC when running fb ads, or increase the friend acceptance ratio if you're going down the friend invite route.

    2. Scrape FB emails / UIDS

    Now in order to utilise this narrowed down audience we will want to get them to either like our posts or engage with our content.
    Since you're probably looking at hundreds or even thousands of potential customers / fans this isn't something we'll do manually.
    Personally I use ULead pro for this job, I'm in no way affiliated with Sashablack's product but it works great for me and I advice anyone interested in doing this to have a look:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ality-leads-bhw-discount.html?highlight=ulead

    Jasgrey recently posted a great tutorial on scraping facebook emails from people that are in facebook groups so if this works for you you can't find the thread here:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...e-facebook-emails-4-500-emails-5-minutes.html


    1. Since I'm using ULead I will just describe my workflow:
    2. Open ULead and login
    3. Type your graph search query into the FB search box
    4. Set the page scroll to Random
    5. (Optional) Set a maximum users to scrape
    6. (Optional) set a pause between each user (I don't do this and haven't had any issues scraping thousands at a time)
    7. When done scraping just check 'export only emails' and save your list (or UIDS if you're going for ads)

    METHOD A

    3. Create Dummy Accounts

    Since there are no easy ways to invite people you aren't friends with to like your page (there have been loopholes in the past) you will want to get them as friends.
    Now we don't want to run any risk of having our personal or page-owning account banned so it's best to create (a) disposable account(s) to add these people.
    One thing that's important if you wan't to do this right is that you make your profile look real. And most importantly, relevant.
    Let's say my page is about travel, I'd now have a list of people interested in travelling, hiking, ...

    To make them accept my friend request my account will ideally have to be:
    • Geographically near
    • In the same language
    • Preferably same age group
    • Obviously interested in the same things

    For example you could create an account called 'Lisa Travels' with an avatar of a girl backpacking and a banner of some tropical rainforest.
    This matters, trust me.

    4. Invite scraped users to become your friend

    Now that we have a list of people to add, and we have a user that they'll gladly accept a friend request from it's time to get our hands dirty.
    !important: Your list should be comma separated to be loaded into facebook. If it isn't then follow the following steps
    1. Open your list with Notepad, mousepad or any basic text editor
    2. Copy all emails
    3. Open Word / OO Writer
    4. Show non-printing characters
    5. Search an replace every line break with a comma (in OO Writer is is replace '$' with ', ')

    After doing this you should have a text-only list of emails seperated with comma's, neat!
    To invite these as friends just copy a few (I try to add less than 500 users at a time) and head over to:
    https://www.facebook.com/invite.php

    Paste your list in the top field, you can leave the second field (invite) blank since these people will get a friend invitation instead of an email (we're adding facebook emails remember?)
    You can alse set the language of the invite (I don't think this is necessary but I do it anyway)
    When ready, click invite and watch the friends pour in.

    5. Suggest your page to them / Share posts from your pages

    After a couple of hours/days you will have built a disposable account with a couple of hundred / thousand friends.
    To invite them to a page you don't have to be an admin, if you were you'd just have suggested your page to the scraped emails, right? Follow the following steps:
    Go to the page you want to suggest, find the box labeled 'people' on the left. It will show a list of users you can suggest the page to.
    Scroll all the way down so the max number of users is loaded.

    Now open your webconsole (Ctrl+Shift+J in Chrome, Ctrl+Shift+K in Firefox) and copy-paste the following Javascript code:
    Code:
    javascript:var inputs = document.getElementsByClassName('_4jy0 _4jy3 _517h _42ft'); 
    for(var i=0; i<inputs.length;i++) { 
    inputs[i].click(); 
    }
    This will invite most of the people in the list. I've had to redo this a couple of times though because it doesn't work 100%; however it beats doing this manually ;)

    PROFIT!

    METHOD B

    3. Import the audience into your AD Manager


    1. Go to 'Manage Ads' -> 'Audiences'
    2. Click on 'Create Audience'
    3. Select 'Data File Custom Structure'
    4. Now upload your list with UIDS
    5. Wait for it to be approved (usually takes about half a minute)

    4. Run a FB Ads Campaign

    I will not go into much detail here, if you're going down this route you should at least have a basic understanding of how FB advertising works.
    However to serve your ad to the scraped userlist you should only show it to the custom audience you just created, this is an option is the ad design proces.

    -------------------------

    I hope this will help some of you out, if you want to reach your goals just take action and results will follow!

    EDIT: I have recieved several PM's from people asking me to explain things in further detail. If you have any questions that can be asked publicly please post them in this thread so everyone can benefit from the answer!

    wow bro! you just hooked us up with some nice things to think about and start working on...so here is my question (sorry for dummy)...if those emails are not seperated by commas and you loaded 300, then what happens?

    On the invite friends page it says: "use commas to separate emails/phone numbers" so it probably won't be able to seperate the addresses from eachother.

    I tried this method and got an email from FB support telling me that some people who i sent invites to said they didnt know me and to prevent my account from being blocked to cancel all the friend request. Any solution for this?

    as you are adding 500 per day, and getting like 30-70 acceptances, are you inviting them immediately to like your page or are you waiting till you get way up in the friend count?

    I haven't had this problem yet, but then again this might have to do with the apparent realness of your account, the relevance of it in relation to your target audience and the age group you're targetting.
    Like I mentioned in the OP, having a high acceptance rate is a must if you want to avoid these kind of build in flags. I target mostly girls between 15-25 and they'll accept just about any friend request.

    I wait. Usually till I know for sure I won't do anymore mass-inviting and the requests have been seen by most people.
    It's only then that you can be 80% sure you won't get flagged.

    nice explained op, i have been using some of this method for a while and it's doing good..
    getting +300 / 400 friend a day, and growing, most of my accounts reached 3500 friend already, and flipping some of them into pages, and suggesting others.

    Thsi definitely works. Using one account, I was able to increase my fanpage likes by 200 in a week and have super great engagement because these fans are real and passionate about your page's niche.

    Here's a tip: If you have a fanpage for a movie or a TV show, make a roleplay or fan account of the actor and scrape a fanpage of that actor for fan emails and invite them to be your friends. I use FBLeadChef for this. Depending on the actor, you might see a huge rise in fans and even passive friend requests since eventually you'll get locked out from sending requests.
