Add your Facebook page web address to your email and forum signatures.
This advice is one that you will probably hear very often. If you communicate with people through your email a lot, why not add your social media profiles so that people can find you easily.
You can just add the URL of your Facebook page but it is ugly to see something like this.
“Add me on Facebook by clicking www.facebook.com/YourPageName “
It will not have a high click through rate. Don’t you agree?
Instead you should use HTML which allow you to get something like this.
See how much prettier that is? I did this with simple HTML. You can do it too! Here is how.
Just replace the appropriate fields with the information they require.
<a href=”Paste URL Here”>Your Link Title Here</a>
Once you have inserted the necessary information just copy and paste the code anywhere you want the link to appear.
Make a new article to get likes on Facebook.
If you already have a blog, then you can make a new article about your Facebook page. Simply create a new post and state the reasons and benefits to why people should like your page. Remember to state benefits and clear reasons. Put yourself in the shoes of the people reading this article and try to convince yourself. If you sound spammy, you might not get likes on Facebook. You could even achieve the opposite. So use this TIP with caution.
Some benefits could for example be; to keep up with the latest development on your blog, to enter a contest, to get a discount and coupons or anything else you can think of.
