We’ve said before that being a social media power user isn’t all about having the most followers.

Yes, your tribe matters. But what matters more is that you’re able to use social media to achieve your goals.

We’ve got tips from big players here, and from some with just a handful of followers. But they’re all useful.

As always, let us know your favorite tip in the comments.

1. Hang Out With Your Competitors

It’s amazing how there are still so many large brands who for one reason or another are not actively engaging with their customers on their Facebook Page. This is a massive opportunity to get likes. If there are pages in your niche where people are asking questions and not getting answers from the brand, be the one who provides the answers. By helping them out you will drive people to your brand’s page and appear more interested in your customers than the other brand.

2. Do the Boring: Fill Out Your “About” Section

After you’ve created your Facebook Page, make sure the About section of your Page includes:

  • An overview of what your business has to offer
  • A link to your website
  • Any other information that will help prospects understand your business better.

All of this content will be indexed by search engines, helping you attract more Fans to your Page.

4. You’re It! Tag Yourself

As long as you’re a fan of your own fan page, you can “@ tag” it on your own personal profile wall. From time to time, you can let your friends know about something happening on your fan page by writing a personal status update that includes tagging your fan page with an @ tag. Simply start typing the “@” symbol and the first few letters of your fan page name (this works whether you have your username registered or not), and it will appear from a drop-down menu to select. This then makes it a nice, subtle hyperlink that your friends can choose to click on.

5. Create Inspiring Content for a Win-Win

Create posts that inspire people to SHARE your content.

People love to share great content. And when your Fans’ friends see that great content, they too may share it — or even better, they may “Like” your page.

It’s a win-win situation.

Your current Fans share your content — and new Fans Like your page because of it!

6. Power Ahead with Facebook Ads

Facebook Ads are by far the easiest way to get more likes for your Facebook page. The difficult part is to effectively manage the Facebook Ads and make the most of a limited budget. Its really important to A/B test every single ad. You should closely monitor the following variables and make changes accordingly based on the ad performance:

a) Changing the target audience depending on the interests

b) Gender

c) State / Province – Geo targeting

d) Bidding for the price

Interestingly, I found that my Ads performed its best during early mornings and late nights!

7. Talk to Your Fans

On every social media site, engagement is the key to success and Facebook is no different.

In order to attract attention on your Facebook page, be engaging on your personal profile as well.

I always channel my new likes through the engagement I create on my personal profile.

8. Leave Tag Trails When You Comment on Other Pages

You can tag within a comment thread on another page to draw attention from a new audience. You can do this if you’re commenting as your page or profile. It will be visible on your profile (if you’re commenting as you), your page (if you’re commenting as your page), and whichever page or profile you post your comment. Plus, those who have also made comments in the thread will receive a notification by email. That’s potentially loads of new eyeballs!

There’s nothing worse than a Page that has no Timeline cover photo or has one that’s poorly designed.
