How To Get Awesome Testimonials With Facebook Fan Reviews App

I have over 10,000 Facebook fans on several of my fan pages with great fan engagement and it’s helped my business increase sales dramatically online.

My biggest tip for Facebook marketing is to share photos that resonate and connect emotionally with your target market. Photo status updates on Facebook will reach more people than any other kind of post (more than links, text and video posts). So that’s one easy way to dramatically increase your fan count and fan engagement – post more photos instead of text, links or videos.

Here’s an example of a great photo that engaged with my fans in my nutrition business:

How To Burn 800 Calories In Just 30 Minutes!

This photo went viral on Facebook – why? Because it engaged with my fans! First of all, it’s just hilarious. Secondly, it’s about “burning calories” which is something a lot of my fans worry about – they want to know how to lose weight, how to eat healthier, etc. So this photo touches them emotionally and makes them laugh – a double whammy!

So is it any wonder why the photo went viral on Facebook? Not to me! I planned it that way – and you can too!

Facebook Fan Reviews Testimonials

I’ve used this strategy of posting photos that connect emotionally with my fans to great effect. In fact, my fans love my photos so much that they leave me testimonials on my fan page.

Facebook Banning 1% Of Users? How Far Will They Go?

Facebook announced recently that they’ll be removing fake profiles and accounts that are operated by bots. The company claims that up to 1% of likes will disappear from the site – but how far will Facebook go with banning accounts?

The Facebook Growth Dilemma

I’m a Facebook marketer myself with tens of thousands of Facebook fans on several of my Fan Pages and I’m also a consultant for small businesses who want to use Facebook to get more leads and grow their brand. I also know several entrepreneurs who own companies that “sell Facebook likes and fans.”
First of all, you have to understand that it’s not in Facebook’s best interest to proactively solve this problem of fake accounts. Facebook’s revenue is directly proportionate to the number of pageviews the site gets, and banning 1% of their users who are deemed “bots” will cost the company A LOT of missed ad impressions  and therefore less revenue.
This conflict of interest is further exacerbated by the fact that the company’s stock has been doing horribly recently. They need to boost profits and they need to do it quickly in order to keep their stock price up – and that’s very hard, if not impossible, for them to do if they start banning a large percentage of the bot accounts and fake profiles.
Even though Facebook claims that 1% of their users are bots, chances are the real number is much much higher – as high as 10% or even 25%. How do I know this? Well, I’ve worked with hundreds of entrepreneurs on their social media marketing and talked with thousands of virtual assistants who do
Facebook marketing.
And one thing all of these virtual assistants have in common is a large number of fake profiles they use in order to do their clients work for them. The average VA I’ve seen who does Facebook marketing has at least 5 Facebook accounts – and there are millions of people like them!

How Many Fake Facebook Profiles Are There?

So how many fake profiles are there, really? I’m guessing at least 100 million (simply an educated guess based on my experience – no one really knows for sure, not even Facebook!)

The key for you to understand is that there are A LOT of fake profiles – and if you’re someone who’s doing or has hired someone to do any of the following activities, you’ll be in for a rude awakening sooner rather than later when you realize all that money and time you spent was wasted:

  • Spamming Facebook pages or groups with a link to your site, fan page or video
  • Creating fake profiles to like your fan page or like your posts and status updates
  • Buying facebook fans
  • Buying likes off of sites like Fiverr
  • Posting as your fan page on other fan pages without adding any real value or content

If you’ve been doing any of these things, you need to stop now! It’s a pure waste of money and time.

If you truly want to succeed with your Facebook marketing, you have to have a real plan based on building real relationships with customers and offering great products and services that people actually want.

How To Increase Your Facebook Fan Page Likes

I use many strategies to grow my Facebook likes. Before I share them, I want to point out that you DO NOT WANT to increase the likes on your Fan Page – you want to increase the number of targeted fans you have.

For example, many people make the mistake of buying fans or doing “like exchanges” with other fan page owners. These are huge mistakes – and they will cost you money instead of put money in your pocket. The reason is that “dead fans” – fans who are not engaged with your brand or are fake or spam profiles – cost you money when you advertise and decrease your Edgerank.

For example, if you have 10,000 fans and 5,000 are fake profiles that you bought, your posts will be seen by far fewer REAL people than a competitor’s fan page with 5,000 real fans and 0 fake fans. Furthermore, if you “promote a post” on your Fan Page, you’re paying to have your posts be seen by fake profiles – which is a waste of money.

Okay, with that aside, here’s how I grow my Fan Page likes with targeted fans:

How To Get More Facebook Fans

  • Buy targeted ads to potential customers and lead them to a Facebook tab within your page that contains an e-mail opt-in form – giving your business new leads while increasing your likes. I’ve found the ROI on this to be much higher than Google Adwords or other PPC campaigns.
  • Install a Facebook Like Box on your blog and websites – put it prominently on the top of the sidebar above the fold for maximum likes.
  • Install a Facebook Like Button on any download pages, opt-in pages, thank-you pages, or other similar pages on your websites. This not only adds credibility for your business, but it will result in extra likes.
  • Invite your Facebook friends to like your page.
  • Run a Facebook contest or sweepstakes and give away prizes that are valuable to your target customer.
