    is it good Idea to invest 80% of my total budget to get likes for a FB fanpage and drive traffic to the website by making posts on the FB fan page?

    for example i have 10000$ and invest 8000$ for advertising to get likes and spent other 2000$ to make site and hosting .
    SEMrush
    can i monetize the FB fanpage traffic ?
    how can i decrease costs on FB like campaign ?

    It was a better idea 2 years ago, when Facebook showed fan page posts more frequently in news feeds. Your cost for those likes will be very dependent on the niche you want to create a page in. You can burn through an advertising budget very quickly if you're paying a dollar a like, and you need about 10000 likes to start to get a fan page that becomes more self-sufficient over time. I have found generally the longer I run a campaign, the lower my cost becomes. The first week in particular is always more expensive than subsequent weeks, don't know why.

    What niche are you looking at? Do you already have one, and do you already have a website?

    I believe $8K dollars is big enough for facebook advertising.
    You may want to advertise on others aside from FB
    Anyway, I do hope that if ever you get into Facebook ads make sure your page is enticing enough for your followers.
    Keep them up-to-date and interact with them.

    It depends on your business niche, but in general it is very BAD idea!

    Don't buy likes. Think of advertising as earning likes. Invest time in creating something interesting people will naturally like/share and then invest money in Facebook advertising. Don't buy likes.

    I have had very little luck buying likes from facebook. The people that like the pages seem to have very low engagement levels and certainly not worth the money paid for them. Spend a little bit to get a small base of users so that your page doesn't look dead, but then focus on getting fans organically

    Buy likes from Facebook itself. But $8k on likes is something I won't do. Try getting viral on your posts. You just need a boost initially so get around 1k likes and let it go viral with some engaging posts. But again it depends on your niche.

    I don't think buying likes is a great idea. Think twice before you do it. Spend your money on things that give more profit.

    You'll just waste money, because there will be a lot likes from fake profiles and people that are generally not interested into the thing you're promoting. If you really want to drive some traffic, it's better to use Google AdWords. If you really want to focus on Facebook marketing then just boost every new post on your page, but don't chase likes.

    Really Good Idea. I have just spent the 30$ on my Facebook page and the result was amazing. I have a website that was boosted with this method since the likes are all targeted which helps you getting the customer easily. And as you said that you have large amount of budget then you should go for it. But please try to buy it from Facebook and not from any freelancer or online services since they are all just fake and time plus money wasting.

    Best of Luck for your business.

    Yes, it is really good idea to increase traffic by using Facebook likes. To buy Facebook likes will be preferred by many people.When you buy Facebook likes you will realize that your return on investment raises due to the statistic you have use to promote each month.

    Most of the likes providers give fake likes. They will not help to increase your traffic.

    In long run this is a bad idea. You pay for likes and then you notice that people are not really engaged with the content you make. The ROI will be negative
    You'd better invest this money in smth else.
