Facebook Likes…nowadays we are kinda obsessed with it.
Even you work for a digital marketing company working for its clients or work on your own site / blog…we all love to see the number go up.
The bigger the better…RIGHT?
But how to keep the numbers growing without spending a dime?
There are a couple of ways to do that but in this post, I will focus on top 3 ways to get more likes on your Facebook page.
So let’s dive in…
#1. Embedded Post
Do you know Facebook lets you embed posts on any web page?
Yes, that’s true!
Now you can grab a piece of code from your Facebook post and embed it into your post.
Let me show you how you can do that.
Step 1: Find a post that you want to embed. You can use your latest post from your Facebook Timeline.
But what I like to go through you Facebook insights tab & find the post engaging post. Once you find that select it by clicking on it.
Step 2: Now to get the embed code just click on the drop-down arrow on the upper right-hand corner of the post and select “Embed Post”. (If you don’t see this option click on “More Options”)
Step 3: Now copy and paste the code into your website or blog. That’s it!
This trick is awesome because it won’t be affected by Facebook’s news feed algorithm…and more importantly, it completely FREE. It will also help you to increase Facebook engagement.
#2. Guest Blogging
We have all heard about guest posting and some of you might have already used it.
Guest posting is not only can help you build authority & links, it can also help you to get more Facebook likes.
Just make sure you link from your author bio to your Facebook page. That’s the key!
If you guest post in a highly authoritative blog and you write some good sh#t, then it might bring you quite a good amount of likes.
#3. Exit Intent Popup
Exit Intent Popups are the best way to engage visitors leaving your website.
Let’s say a user is browsing through your website / blog but suddenly decides to leave without liking your Facebook page. Exactly that moment they will be interrupted by a message asking them to like your Facebook page.
There are many tools you can use to create this popup. One of my favorites is Hello Bar. Neil Patel also uses this technique in his blog Quicksprout. And if you are visiting this blog for the first time, you might something like this when you try to exit.
Now let me show you how to do this:
Step 2. Click on “Create New” from the left sidebar. It will take you to a new page to select a goal.
Step 3. Select the goal called “Get Facebook Likes” and enter you Facebook Page URL. From the drop-down menu select, “Current Page Visitor is Viewing” and hit continue.
Step 4: Now, let’s configure your Hellobar. On the left, you have the edit the options and on the right, you’ll see a preview of your bar with your selected options. Now select ‘Like on Facebook’.
Step 5: Now turn off the option called “Like the URL my visitor is on” and enter you Facebook Page URL in the box below.
Step 6. Select a style (I like Page Takeover) customize according to your website. And hit save & continue.
