How to advertise a page on Facebook for free
Would you advertise a page on Facebook for free, without investing even one euro? Know that there are various ways to do this: you can invite your Facebook friends to “Like” the page, you can promote it on other pages that you manage and that have a decent following, you can report it on groups that deal with similar themes or you can take advantage to your advantage the visibility you may have on other social networks and / or on your website. Let’s take a closer look at all these solutions.
A good way to promote your Facebook page would be to let those on your list know friends that you created it, thus inviting them to “like” you and follow its updates. This, in fact, is a suggestion that the same social network gives immediately after the creation of a new page.
- On smartphones and tablets – presses on the card Community, tap the button Invite your friends to “like” this page which is immediately below the counter of total likes and people following the page, presses the button Invite located at the friends name to invite and that’s it.
- On PC – presses the blue button Invite your friends located in the box Community located in the right column (at the bottom), identify the users who do not yet follow the page, put the check mark in correspondence with their first name and, after possibly modifying the invitation message located in the upper part of the box Invite your friends to “like” a [nome della pagina], click the blue button Send invitations (N).
Once the invitation has been sent, your friends will receive a notification that will encourage them to like your page: even if it is very likely that not all the invited users will put the “thumbs up”, at least they will know of the existence of your page and in the future they may do so on their own initiative.
Other pages and groups
If you manage aanother Facebook page that is particularly popular, you can try to “win easy” by advertising the page that is least followed on the latter. To do so, log in to your Facebook account, go to the page that has the least active followers, press the button Share (on mobile you can view it by pressing the button first (…) located next to the Facebook search bar, more precisely at the top right) and select the page name which is most followed to publish the post containing the invitation to follow the one that has a lower number of likes.
Speaking of groups… do not give in to the temptation to promote the page in the ones that were created to carry out like exchanges: you would get “fake” followers, not interested in the content posted on your page. What good would it do? You said well, absolutely nothing!
Website / blog and other social networks
You have a website or a blog who is very popular? You are very popular on Instagram, Twitter or other social networks? In this case, I recommend that you advertise your page on these channels: users who already follow you on your website, on your blog and / or on other social networks will most likely be inclined to follow you on Facebook too, don’t you think?
To promote the page on your website, for example, you could simply add a button inviting your readers to like it to follow updates. I guarantee you that this is a very simple operation to implement: to proceed, connect to this web page, fill out the form that is proposed to you by entering in the field URL to “Like” the address of the page you want to advertise and, after choosing the layout, size and other features of the button, press the blue button Get the code. At this point there is nothing left to do but copy the HTML code got it and paste it on your website – that’s all.
To promote your Facebook page on another social network, however, you simply have to publish a post containing the link to your page and the invitation to like it. In the post in question you could write a call-to-action looks like this: “You like the content I post on [nome del social network in cui sei seguito]? So follow me also on my Facebook page [link alla pagina Facebook da pubblicizzare]!“.
