    Hey guys,
    This is RW here. I've decided to start a facebook page. My main game is CPA marketing with YT comment spamming. I've had some success with it so far but not exactly the income I envisioned for myself. So, I'd like to diversify my income. Of course, I will continue with YT, but I'd like to do this in my free time.

    And no, I don't need ideas for monetizing my page. As the BHW golden rule states : Read before you ask, I've read lots of threads about Facebook marketing. The one which I found most interesting and probably achievable is a method given by G-S-T in 2012. Yeah, I'm sort of a grave digger lol :p. But in order to make it work, I'll need to get some fans first. I've created my page yesterday, made a profile and cover pic, and also posted some pics. I don't want to use social exchange sites or buy FB likes as they probably won't complete my offers. Right now I just have 1 like =/. It's not mine :p. It's a pretty modest start but I hope to make it grow soon.

    Here're my questions :

    How many photos should I post per day?
    What time interval should I keep between each?

    Niche : Comedy
    It's a pretty hard one but If I have some success with it, then I could be banking hard.
    PS. IF you'd like to check my page out, I'd be glad to PM the link. I would appreciate some feedback on the cover and profile pic as well.

    Thanks,
    RW.

    Keep posting the day long. Every 2 hours you should post something. In the high traffic hours every 10 min, but these belongs to your country and time zone.

    Use plan post :)

    You can't spam your facebook fan page likes :p

    Lol yesterday I was posting a photo for every 40 seconds. Think that might be too fast?
    And thanks for the suggestion :)

    Yes it's too fast :D
    If you post pictures that fast you won't get much likes and comments for your posts.

    Thanks for that.
    Will a photo per 10 minutes be okay? Or should I go even slower?

    I suggest in the beginning you should keep it to one photo post per day and start gradually increasing the frequency once your page starts growing.

    But how do you plan to acquire the first likes on your page? Just posting photos on your page with no fan-base will not get you likes.

    Take a look at the pages that are doing well and copy them, maybe instead of posting a photo on one account every 40 seconds, post them on several accounts less frequently.

    Try to find what time user are most active at your region. For example, for my local time user are active at 9 pm until 2 or 3 am. By doing this, you can reach more than random posting time.

    When I was building my page I sticked to 2 hours rule. It was working for me cause after 2 hours photo gets saturated and it is time to post another one. Of course at the very start you can go with 1 hour. No need for 1o minutes posts or something like that...Find good photos on tumblr and pinterest and try to stay original, do not post blurry photos etc...

    Dont post a new photo after 40 seconds or 10 minutes. If you do so, you will not get much activity on your previous posts and the new posts will overshadow the old ones and this will go on. Try to separate the posts by at least 2 hours. That way, you will get better activity on your page.

    post 1 url everyday or share a post every day [ after you hit 1k likes ]

    it will make your people additive to click on link .

    i have seen a big page , [ it was only sharing posts and 8 good posts then 1 ppc share ]

    and it was still having good likes and comments per share and about 10k visitors per share .

    I personally do 1 pic and hour and during peaks I sometimes do 1 every 30 mins. Best way to get quality likes when you start is by liking other comedy related pages with lots of likes and post attention grabbing comments (not spam) or a good comment followed by an invite to checkout your page. If your comment gets replied to or gets liked it will push it up to the top of the comments and that should bring your page some likes too. Aim to comment on the NEWEST pictures. You can do this by clicking on home and sorting posts by most recent instead of top stories. Refresh every once in a while and see if you manage to catch a post without comments yet.
