Any way to get facebook likes for free ?

    Hi guys,
    SEMrush
    I am trying to build a fanpage. I was wondering if it is possible to grow the number of likes naturally for free, or if it will work only with facebook ads.
    I don't believe in buying likes. My page is not just to look good with tons of likes, I want to have genuine likes from people who would be interested in what I do.
    (sorry if the question have already been asked)

    Do you have any experience with both methods ?
    Would you recommend to just go for paid facebook ads ?

    It's a question that many have asked and there is a lot of literature about how to get more likes. Some suggestions:
    1. Share some of the best posts on the 'fanpage' on your personal feed.
    2. Request your friends to like your page.
    3. Request your friends to share posts from this fanpage.
    4. Participate in Facebook groups and share some of your great posts on the groups.
    You may not need to spend a lot of money on advertising the fan page if you spend time and money on creating engaging updates instead.

    If you update your fb page on regular basis, your likes would automatically increase. Mind you, they would be interested in your products too.

    With paid liking, you can't guarantee whether that person would be interested in your products or not.

    If you're wanting natural likes & shares, regular updates that include images/video instead of just text is the way to go. Another way to increase the amount of likes and shares is by offering something for them. If you have genuine likes in the first place, they are more willing to share it on their pages if you offer an incentive (give-away, contest, discount, perk of some sort). This will give you further "reach" & the ability to be seen by a number of people that wouldn't otherwise know that you existed. And yes, natural likes are much better than paid likes because with paid likes, you would probably have very few click-throughs to your site or products. If they are natural likes, they have a reason for liking you & perhaps share some of the same interests, which makes your conversion rate much higher than with paid likes.

    Even though you are looking for free methods, I have to let you know that the fastest way to naturally increase your facebook likes is facebook ads. To get even more likes, rotate your facebook ads everyday. Here are other ways you can increase your likes:

    - Add Facebook's social plugin to your website
    - Run a contest
    - Lock your most important content with a social locker
    - Always share your new blog posts on your facebook page
    - Solicit likes through banner ads on your site

    Building your fanpage without facebook ads will take time but
    if you have a blog with hundreds of visitors everyday you should
    add the social share plugin on your site so that whenever someone
    visit your website and likes your post may click the like button to like
    your page.
    But if you need to grow your fanpage fast then the ad will be the best
    method.

    There are many ways to get Facebook page likes. Some of the common ways are exchanging likes with page owners and inviting friends to you page or requesting your friends to invite their friends. Besides there are some websites too where one can earn credit and spend them after gaining Facebook likes or followers
