    Guys, I've been doing SEO for the past ten years and am now interested in branching out and trying to learn how to generate as much traffic with Facebook. I have a viral type of blog and a facebook page. I've tested boosting a few posts with decent success and can drive traffic to the blog that way so I'm comfortable moving forward. I'll be hiring a couple freelancers to scour the net and find viral content to publish to the blog, and then I'll choose the best content to post to my facebook page and boost posts.

    However, I don't want to rely on boosting posts and ideally want to grow my page with likes. So I clicked the button to "promote this page" and created an ad with really broad targeting. I set the budget to $5 a day for 7 days to see what I get. But after the first day I got 2 likes for the $5 I spent. So that obviously isn't going to work! I have a decent budget for this project to grow it fast and will spend between $500 - $1,000 for the first several months while I grow the audience and blog. But my question, is how can I grow likes to the facebook page? I get the feeling the "promote this page" method isn't the best way to generate likes on my page. Are there any good courses on how to do this? Or what should I be reading to learn this?

    And any critiques on what I've shared here? Is my budget alright? I could spend more, but I'm not going to be dumping money after $2.50 likes! That's not sustainable for sure. Thanks everyone in advance.

    Narrow down your targetting. Broad targetting is no good. Get really specific in your niche

    Thanks, that's good insight. It seemed counterintuitive to me at first. I just narrowed down the audience on one of my boosted posts. I'll see how it goes.
