Whether you’re a blogger or a business, you’ll know firsthand that Facebook is one of the hardest social media platforms to crack.
You’ll also know that once you have built a flourishing Facebook page, that it’s one of the most beneficial social platforms for your business or brand.
It’s a known fact that billions of people use Facebook. That means it’s more than likely that your audience is already on there, refreshing their feeds daily, just waiting to be introduced to your business.
So, is there a secret hack for growing your Facebook page?
Although there is no easy or fast way to growing your Facebook page, I’ve recently discovered a secret Facebook hack that’ll get you more ‘likes’.
It works by targeting the people that are already interacting with your page!
Hold on a minute…so there are people who are interacting with your page, that don’t already ‘like’ it?
Yes that’s right!
Do your Facebook status’ ever get likes?
Do they ever get shares?
Have you ever checked to see if the people liking or sharing your updates, actually already like your Facebook page?
The answer to this is probably not. With so many platforms to manage, I know I personally never check to see if my retweets on twitter, or likes on Facebook, come from my followers or from other people.
But every single day, people, even probably you, stumble across status updates from pages that they don’t already like. Maybe a friend has shared something on their news feed and you’ve seen it, or maybe a brand or business ‘promoted’ a status and it happens to fall into your newsfeed.
So what then happens to the people that like your status but not your page?
Well, quite simply, they disappear. People are often scrolling through Facebook liking lots of things. You’ll know from personal experience, that it’s rare to then take the time to click further and to actually ‘like’ the page, of the person or business who created the status. The person interacting with your page, might not even realise that the rest of your content is something they might enjoy.
But, by already liking your content, they’re clearly a little bit interested in you. After all, we often post content that is ‘relevant’ to our target audience.
So, what can you do about it? They’re not your Facebook friend, so how can you invite them to like your page?
Well, there is actually a super secret Facebook method (that won’t be secret for much longer) that allows you to ‘invite’ the people, who have interacted with your page to ‘like’ it.
I’m going to show you how now and guess what? It is super simple and only takes seconds to do.
Step 1 – View Your Profile As A Visitor
Simply go onto your Facebook page for your blog, business or brand. Now you need to ‘view’ your page as another person and not your own page. You can do this by clicking ‘…More‘ at the top of your page. A dropdown bar will give you the option to ‘View as Page Visitor‘.
Click on this and you are now viewing your page as a person and not your business.
Step 2 – Click On The ‘Likes’ On A Status
The next step involves you clicking on the ‘likes‘ on a status. It doesn’t matter which status you chose. If you only have one or two clicks, you simpy click on the individuals and it will give you the option to ‘invite them to like your page. But if it says ‘…and 37 others‘ or whichever number, then click on that link and a dropbox will appear.
Step 3 – Invite People To Like Your Page
The final step is to invite people to like your page. The drop box will look like the screenshot below. You can then simply scroll down and click ‘invite‘ on all the people that haven’t already liked your page.
Now all you need to do is sit back and wait, to see how those invites convert into page likes.
Yesterday I spent half an hour going back through a few weeks of status updates, inviting anyone who had already liked my Facebook posts, to like my Facebook page.
My Facebook page grew by another 10 people within ten minutes and is still growing now.
Such a simple ‘secret’ hack for growing your Facebook, could convert you a much bigger following, and all from people who are already enjoying your updates.
