In this blog, I will explain how we made a brand new Facebook page. Then, we grew it to over 5369 followers in less than 2 weeks. We spent $145 on Facebook ads and mixed some videos using other people’s videos. Make sure you private message people whom you want to use their videos. 90% of people wouldn’t mind as long as you give them credit.
Step 1: Create a Facebook page
Skip this step if you already know how create a Facebook page. If you don’t check out the video below and you will learn everything you need to know.
Once you have your Facebook page, insert all the information needed in about tab. Configure your page template and so forth. The most important part of your Facebook page is your profile picture and your banner photo. They are the first part of your page which people see. Spend extra time and design eye catching images. We usually use Photoshop & Canva to speed up the process.
Step 2: Make It Look Older
There are a lot of scams out there. They open a Facebook pages or profiles and abuse the platform. By the time Facebook close their account, they have new pages and profiles. We all know about them. One of the obvious indication is the timeline history. Scams don’t spend their time complete their profile and post regularly.
After you complete the page, prepare a few videos and images to post right away. After that, use Buffer or any scheduling application to schedule your posts to save time.
Step 3: Find Your Best Content
The trick is into this step.
Find 10 friends or random people and show them your content. Favor videos because videos will help with the next step. Also, favor the content which trigger energetic emotions like happiness or anger. Because, when you trigger an energetic emotion in people, they will spend the energy in engaging with your content. They will share or like it which result in more reach.
Pay attention! There are 6 reactions to choose from on Facebook posts. 5 of them are energetic emotions and one is sadness. Have you noticed when you are sad, you don’t usually want to do anything.
Step 4: Advertise Your Best Content
Jump into your Facebook Business Manager or use the simple boost button under your best content. Choose “Page Like” as your subjective. Target relevant location, age and interest for your page. Keep the audience broad, ideally over 1 million people. Publish your ad and watch the result. If you aren’t happy with it, change your content and try again.
Here is the best part. A lot of people will share your best content. Once they share, power of social media will help you gain organic followers. We only paid for 3,474 of our followers. The rest are completely organic.
Step 5: Share
We spend thousands of dollars every month to test different advertising and marketing methods.We learn from them and share them with you so you don’t have to. To encourage us to do more testing, please share our content or follow us on social media.
