How To Get A Ton Of Facebook “Likes” Fast – Part 1

Facebook LogoOkay, this is gonna be fun…

While I technically created a Facebook page for Music Marketing Manifesto a few months ago, it’s really just been sitting there gathering dust until just a few days ago.

With Facebook becoming increasingly relevant in the world of marketing (Understatement of the year), I thought I should do a little experimenting and see what I could do to get my “like” count up quickly on my new page. After all, I teach this stuff, I need to be able to show you folks that I know what I’m doing, right?

Well, good news for you… it’s been working well. We’ll get to the “YOU” part in a sec.

Here’s whats gone down so far. As of February 27th (4 days before this was posted), I had a mere 6 “likes” on my theretofore abandoned MMM Facebook page. I started up the engine on my FB campaign a few days ago and by yesterday I had grown that number to 179.

But once things started to really heat up, the “like” count exploded on my new page. In fact, since yesterday that number has climbed from 179 to 1226. That’s over 1000 new “likes” in essentially a day, and climbing.

The best part is, these are all targeted and active Facebook users. In fact, if you’re reading this there is a decent chance that’s how you found me.

Here’s a screen shot of my “like” count as of a few minutes ago…

Facebook Page Likes

A few hours ago I received a nice email from a subscriber who noticed my Facebook activity and emailed to compliment me on the quick rise in my “like” count. That’s when it dawned on me…

…why don’t I share this climb with you guys, as it happens, so that you can see (in real time) just how easy it can be to get a large following on Facebook in a short amount of time. Then, when it’s all over I’ll share the results with you and explain how I did it.

Now truth be told I’m a little nervous here. I’m doing this in real time so if I for any reason I don’t deliver, you get to see me fall flat on my face, publicly. With that said, the results of this system have been working like gang busters so far and I have every reason to believe that things will keep on climbing. At the very least it will be a great learning experience for all of us. But I do have some homework for you.

Here’s what I want I want you do…

1. Click this link here and head on over to my new MMM Facebook Page. Make a mental note of the “like” count. Has it risen since this post went live? (11:04 PM 3/2/11)

2. While you’re there, click the like button. I’m currently having a contest on my wall and if you leave a comment under the most recent post (depending on when you’re reading this). The best comment wins a prize.

3. Come back here and let me know what questions you have about the whole Facebook fan page process so that I can be sure to try and address everything in my follow up post in a few days. Do so in the comments below.

That’s about it for now. It’ll only take a minute to do each of those three steps above, and in a few days I’ll report back to share the results of this little experiment.

This really is going to be fun.

  • En fait, La Havane etait une ville qui ne dormait pas…On est en train de changer le but de venir visiter Cuba pour les plages et la temperature. On veut que les personnes y viennent pour l’authenticite du pays, de sa culture, de sa facon d’agir…meme si le soleil et le sable aide beaucoup.

  • Weekends really do go by too quickly! We took Anna to a spray park on Saturday, but she didn’t like it. Sunday was the first session of her art class. She proceeded to cry twice in class for odd reasons. So….our weekend wasn’t as nearly as fun as yours!

  • Dersler bölümünde sea effect için çok güzel bir döküman olur radar görüntülerinden kanısındayım. Bu arada Ozan geçen sene chatte konuşulanların lafta kalmayıp gerçekleştiğini görmek gerçekten çok güzel. Bence blog daha da gelişirken sen de ileride çok daha iyi yerlere geleceksin diye düşünüyorum. Bir de tahmin bölümü hayata geçirilse daha da güzel olacak ama dediğin gibi acele yok…

  • Hello there! I might have sworn I’ve been to this blog before except following browsing through a quantity of of the post I realized it’s pristine to me. Anyhow, I’m definitely blissful I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back frequently!

  • Girl i dont know what is going on or what you are going to do! ahahha But you are welcome to hang out here I need to get good use out of that chat box I’m paying for! Yahoo is: foxxy_baglady

  • Mi sa che a Levanto non ci sarà nessun Paida, forse la Bradipaida è intenzionata, ma altri non so… io sicuramente NO, 7 Km di discesa, seppur dolce e asfaltata, sono VELENO per il mio tendine rotuleo dx… che al momento mi concede solo di fare della pianura. Stasera caro Spiety io passo, reduce da un bellissimo allenaisa ieri pomeriggio con il Notarlo lungo il fiume Entella, fino a Carasco e ritorno, con al seguito Wilheim e la Giorgia e la Sylvia che ci incitavano e ci davano il passo in bicicletta

  • I'm going to stop using pens and pencils because they are sexist phallic symbols and I feel I need a writing implement with a more feminine flavour. Anybody know where I can get a biro shaped like a hoo-ha?

  • So sorry to hear you were ill over the New Year but glad that you are better. I LOVE your iPhone photos and the town looks fascinating. I've spent some time in a small Northern Italian town and the rituals and schedules were similar. Suddenly in the evening everyone was out and about! I adored it there.This year we stayed home (Seattle) by the fire and made plans for the new year, including a trip to Paris in the spring. Have a lovely new week. – g

  • camilla: Jeg er veldig glad for alle tipsene jeg fikk, og det er godt Ã¥ vite at andre ogsÃ¥ kanskje vil ha nytte av de 🙂 SÃ¥ lenge du har klær som fungerer til ditt bruk, er det jo ikke noe vits Ã¥ bytte det ut. Jeg vet jeg trenger en skikkelig vinterturbukse, for de eneste alternativene jeg har nÃ¥ er enten varmedressen, eller sommerturbukse med veldig mye under. Blir litt sÃ¥nn Michelin-mannen-følelse av det 😉

  • Ca sert à quelque chose d'écrire un commentaire quand on est du même avis, ou presque?J'adore True Blood avant tout pour l'ambiance ET ses personnages secondaires bien plus intéressants et fouillés que Sookie & Bill.Les scénarios sont, il est vrai, un peu "légers" mais le côté 'fouilli" de chaque épisode le fait un peu oublier (bon ok j'admets il en faut peu pour me passionner, je suis une cliente facile).Donc, oui, vivement la saison 3!!Et en attendant: très bon séjour au Japon! Bonnes vacances.

  • stuart, i recvd an email response from rebecca re your bleg here:"If he contacts me, I'll help in any way that I can. Yes, the ECB website AND balance sheet is very arcane and quite opaque."& ed harrison knows the euro-area politics as well as anyone, which arguably may be more important than the monetary data sets at this point in time…

  • Da bravo uomo della sicurezza ho imparato negli anni una cosa. La gente viene truffata perchè a sua volta è fondamentalmente disonesta.Se ci pensate su un attimo vi rendete conto di quanto è vera questa cosa.Ti fregano perchè pensi di fare un “affare”, ovvero perchè pensi di trarre un ingiustificato e grande vantaggio, ovvero perchè pensi di essere tu che stai fregando l’altro….

  • Does anyone here have a sneaky suspicion that next season will be our season? with Marin, IF torres, Hulk, possibly Hazard and Gregory Vand Wiel. And David Luiz and Cahill turning boss?

  • As a Union fan, I could not be more thrilled about this article. Marquez is simply a dirty player, there is no way around it. Everyone has a bad game from time to time, but that many dirty tackles in his short MLS career? It’s in everyone’s best interest to get rid of this scum bad (especially for the Union).

  • I think having children that were really into Britney Spears a few years ago, puts me in the child category. What category would I be in if I didn’t care about Paris of Britney, but would just appreciate it if every woman kept their girl parts OFF display in public places?

  • Hi Thomas,Respekt! Super tolle Bilder! Wir waren vor 2 Jahren auf Island und ich muss sagen, Du hast es in Deinen Bildern wunderbar getroffen!Liebe Berliner GrüßeDési

  • O jejku dziÄ™ki ;DHmmm ja tak czasami czytam książki, ale powiem Ci szczerze, że też czasami, najczęściej przed snem myÅ›lÄ™, że jestem kimÅ› innym w jakimÅ› innym Å›wiecie.

  • ohohoho! ce frumos! ce articol dragut -retrospectiva m-a luat prin surprindere! Ce an frumos! Sa ne fie de bine, sa avem grija de noi si sa avem parte de cat mai multe reusite!

  • çok hoÅŸsun:)) böyle bir bağımlı grubu olsa emin ol üyesi oldukça fazla olurdu:) ben de dün aynı cici ÅŸeyin fotoÄŸrafını çektim, poz poz hem de, neden? bloga koyarım belki:)

  • Oh my gosh, I love you guys…and all that you do to inspire! I have taken Soul Restoration, loved it. And wish to continue the process. I am 100% committed to my soul work these days, after taking the first step with you…I want to grow…I also want to tell you how much I love the Brave Girl daily inspirations…I share them so often.I am now finding gentleness in my body issues, so I would be so happy if I were to win a spot there, but I wish greatness to those who do!So proud of your success…xo

  • I get an information message saying “In order to build this project, you must mark the AS or MXML entry point as “Always Compile” in the project tree.”How do I get to the project tree?

  • Thanks a lot for being my personal coach on this topic. I enjoyed your current article very much and most of all favored the way you handled the areas I considered to be controversial. You are always rather kind towards readers really like me and assist me to in my existence. Thank you.
