Getting new Twitter followers and people to like your Facebook page is still one of the biggest priorities for businesses and regardless of existing interaction, everyone wants more. Why? Because it looks good to others.
If you have thousands of Facebook Likes and Twitter followers you and your business must be doing well. And the bigger the social community the better your success.
But I believe this isn’t the case and I’ve been doing some social testing. The results aren’t really surprising.
Facebook would like you to spend to be seen and liked
The fact is that Facebook want business page owners to spend money to be seen and liked. When I created my Facebook page back in 2009, there weren’t that many of us about, particularly in the UK. Since then it has been social boom time and the sheer amount of small business pages on Facebook is over 25 million and growing.
So advertising your page and promoting your posts, seems like a good investment and the way to go doesn’t it, especially when you’re up against such stiff competition?
The results from my own tests concluded that if you want to increase the magic page like amount and this is your sole intention, on average you can expect 40-50 overall page likes for £5.00 per day for a 3 day campaign.
