Many Facebook users want to know how they can grow their followers. This is somewhat normal since there have been at least hundreds of thousands of pages on Facebook to date. Whether your page is about your business or is solely dedicated to bringing entertainment to the millions of Facebook users, it is important that you should know what you can do to gain followers. Unless you are a celebrity or a well-known person, getting followers for your page takes longer time. But once you accomplished this goal, all those times and energy you spent gathering your followers will be well paid off.
One of the methods you can do to achieve this goal is to buy ads for your page. Of course this method is only for those who have the budget to do so. It is now easier to place ads on Facebook and what’s even better is that promoted ads can be shown on the news feed so even people who have not yet liked nor heard of your page will get to see it in their own news feed. If they get intrigued with it they’ll definitely be curious to check out your page and eventually like it.
You should also be able to pay attention to your page insights. Facebook’s page insights is where you can view which of your posts did better than the rest. This is very helpful for users who don’t want to get stuck with the small number of followers they have. It gives you an idea about what posts have more impact to your friends and followers and what kind of posts you should be doing more. If you maintain posts that your followers like, there is a big chance that they will like it and even share it to their wall. This means their friends who are non-likers of your page get to see the post as well and if they enjoy it, it will definitely lead back to your page. Creating original great content gives you thumbs up from your followers but it might also help to post a photo or video that has already been getting a lot of feedback from around the web.
Consistency will also help you in getting huge number of followers. You should be able to update your page regularly that will make your presence more visible. One day of absence from Facebook is okay, two days is still acceptable but not any more than that. If you give people the impression that you don’t care about your presence then they definitely won’t care as well. Posting 5 times a week is enough and any lesser than that is not acceptable. You should also learn how to post on different times and which is the best time to post. In the middle of the night when most people are already sleeping is not the best time to post any content because it won’t get the same attention as it will when you post in during the time when everyone is awake.
