    Hi all,

    I am looking to boost the numbers on my facebook page by ‘purchasing likes’. I know that this won’t lead to any sales, because I assume they are all bot accounts or indian accounts, but has anyone had any experience in doing this?

    I have heard some pretty bad stories about people having their facebook pages temporarily banned and often loosing the likes within a few months.

    I just want to do it, to hopefully start a band wagon effect.

    Let me know your thoughts guys.

    Thanks

    If you want to increase your like, you can use Facebook ads, but first you need to give people a compelling reason to join.

    Hey all,

    Just saw this deal today: http://www.bargains4business.com.au/ – seems like a pretty transparent solution for facebook likes

    Even your determined to buy likes, then go for it. It’s not going to increase your business, get you any sales, and may damage your credibility, but if you have read through this thread and still think it’s a good idea then no one can stop you.

    As for transparent – I’m not sure what your mean. Look at the deal owners site: http://www.avenrepublic.com/products/1000-facebook-likes. It look like they sell whatever they feel can make them a buck. It’s not transparent how theybuy your likes at all.

    This will be farmed to some guy who has 1000 Facebook accounts who will then like your page. FB may decide to remove these likes down the track, or even may ban your page. IMHO it’s not worth it.

    I didn’t think I’d see something like this here at FS.

    Simple answer – DON’T DO IT.

    Give people a reason to like your stuff.

    The answer is really simple NO and the reason is Quality vs Quantity. I would rather engage/converse with 10 people who are truly interested in my products and services vs 10k that are not.

    I hope that helps you.

    Facebook ads can be a good way to build up an online following relatively quickly, the process of setting it up is quite straight forward, and you can control what you spend. But you do need to post things that are useful and interesting to the audience you’re trying to attract, to give them a reason to follow you. This can be as simple as sharing relevant articles, or giving away handy little tips and tricks.

    In my opinion, this would be money much better spent, and this way you’re building a real, relevant audience that could potentially lead to sales and exposure for you down the track.

    Hi there,

    Honestly speaking we spent money buying FB likes, TW followers and can tell you that it’s not worth it.

    Because of the following reasons…

    – more than 35-40% FB profiles are fake (I may not be accurate so few % here and there

    – more than 25-30% TW profiles are fake (I may not be accurate so few % here and there

    – Even many branded companies who has millions of page likes but hardly few likes for the post (I always wonder)

    – Have tried FB post promotion, FB offers and wasted money without any sales or revenue

    – It looks good initially to start but eventually frustrating

    So unless you have genuine people on board, it would not help engaging.

    I would not recommend that. However ultimate decision is yours and depends on situation to situation.

    If you need any help or information then get in touch with me.

    Remember – Facebook is not a popularity contest.

    Just because a facebook page has 10,000 likes, I’m not going to like it myself unless it is of value to me. So make your FB page of value to your audience and the likes will come. And, more importantly, the conversion will come (likes don’t feed the children).
