Facebook Page Tip #1 – How to Invite your Facebook Friends to Like Your Page
When you publish a new Post on your business’s Facebook Page, it will begin appearing on the News Feeds of the people who Like (and follow) said Page. The more people that Like your Page, the more people Facebook can show your Posts to, so building up a following is critical to your success. This article shows you how you can start the ball rolling by inviting your existing Facebook Friends to Like your new Page.
Step 1 – How to Find Your Facebook Page
Open Facebook in any web browser and login. At the right of the blue bar at the top of the screen you will see a little white triangle – click it to open a menu.
The top section of the menu will be a list of your Pages. Click the name of the Page you want to manage (or click ‘See more…’ to access the full list of your pages if the one you need isn’t shown).
Step 2 – Open your Page’s Community Tab
On the left of your page you’ll see a vertical list of links that Facebook calls the ‘tabs’. Find the tab labelled ‘Community’ and click it.
Step 3 – Invite Your Friends!
On the right of the Community Page you’ll find a panel like this one suggesting a couple of your friends that you could invite. The easiest way to proceed is to click the ‘See all friends’ link and scroll up and down the list sending invites ONLY to those friends you think will be genuinely interested in your page (see warning below).
Tip Don’t forget to repeat this process every now and again as you gain new Facebook Friends and check your Community Page regularly to see how many people currently Like and Follow your page. If people stop following it’s a good indication that you’re posts aren’t hitting the spot and you should contact an expert for some advice.
Bonus Tip Remember ALL the people who have been assigned a role on your Page can invite their friends to like it.
WARNING! When it comes to the people who Like your Page quantity is super important but so is quality. Only invite people who you think will Like, Share and Comment on your Posts or you will damage your Page’s ability to successfully reach a large audience. For this reason you must be incredibly careful when trying to gain Page Likes using paid advertising. If you are in any doubt contact MGC Websites Ltd for professional assistance.
