Increase your Facebook Fans


Here’s a super simple way I came across to potentially increase the number of your Facebook Fans overnight… or at least, in just a few clicks! It’s so ridiculously easy and effective, plus it’s completely free :-)

It’s no secret that Facebook has significantly reduced the reach of organic (non paid) posts to Facebook Fans in recent years. Whereas in the past you could have reached between 20-30% of your Facebook Fans via an organic post on your Page, nowadays it can be less than 10%.

Facebook’s algorithm for deciding who to show what is clouded in mystery, but all that we know for sure is that Facebook is silently encouraging us to use its paid platform to reach our Fans and generate new ones.

Whether we like to admit it or not, if we are on Facebook, we are all concerned about those Likes. Social affirmation theories aside, as business owners, the more Likes our posts receives, and the more Likes (Fans) our Page has, the bigger the audience we can speak to.

Having said this, an engaged and active small Facebook Fan community is of far greater benefit than a large and  inactive one. ‘Buying’ Likes to create a big ‘fake’ audience will get you nowhere, and can actually hamper your efforts to reach your ‘real’ audience.

Using Facebook as a business tool is clearly an enormous topic, and one I hope to return to in more detail soon on Shotkit. If you have any tips on generating more Facebook Fans, be sure to leave a comment at the end of this post.

Remember, we’re all in this together. We’re comrades, not competitors!

I promised you a way to increase the number of your Facebook fans, just by clicking. It sounds like a spammy technique, but it really isn’t – it’s just a feature that’s somewhat overlooked by most people.

If you don’t have time to click repeatedly on buttons (you’ll see what I mean when you watch the tutorial), you can always outsource the job to a Fiverr worker.

So without further ado, I hope you enjoy the tip. Let me know if it helps you to increase the number of your Facebook Fans.

  • Mark I’m in Australia as well, and on my Business page it doesn’t have that feature.

    It says 10 people reached etc. It doesn’t have lit of names, nor does that feature appear on my personal page.

    Hmmm great idea, frustrated I cannot use it.

    Personally I like FB for interacting with other Photographers, but as a business tool it’s a scam. Facebook has deliberately set it so that without paying you’re getting bugger all, and frankly I don’t trust their claims about what it can do for business. I get way better results from Instagram whcih has 5 times the social engagement of Facebook, so we can expect that to start to be monitised soon too.

  • Hi — I’ve used this a lot. I only see the the invite buttons if I am looking at my Page as my private self (my private page is ‘Ben Russell’, one of my two ‘Pages’ is Ben Russell – Photographer). If I’m logged in as ‘Ben Russell – Photographer’ I can’t invite; if I’m logged in as Ben Russell I can. I get a reasonable uptake from invites. On my Page ‘The Polytunnel Book’ I actually got 200 new Page likes in three days, by using the invite opportunities from a high performing post (I’d boosted it a little) and going through old photos I’d posted, to search for missed and new ‘invite’ opportunities.

  • A further point on this, I run a few pages with 100,000 plus followers and the invite option is not available, but it is available on a new page I started which currently has only 700 followers – the difference could be that the invite option is only rolled out on new pages, or that the invite option is deactivated when pages reach a certain number of followers. If anyone knows which I’d be very interested to know.

    • Ah this is interesting Barco, and explains why some other Shotkit readers haven’t been able to see the Invite button. I’m guessing it’s because you have so many followers. Well done!!

  • Hey thanks for that. I haven’t heard that before and tried on my page but for some reason the option to invite them didn’t work.

    Oh well but thanks for sharing.

  • Great tip.. Unfortunately for us too, there is no invite option to click.. The pop-up box is titled ” Invite people who like this post to like your page”, but no boxes next to names, except for the people who we liked, then it shows a box with “Liked” checked…

    • Oh how annoying Jerry – it seems Facebook might be rolling this feature out gradually to certain countries. Fingers crossed it gets to you!
