Hello! Welcome back! Today, I want to talk about Facebook likes. I know, it’s a bit of a “ugh” topic because let’s face it, every artist you know and like on Facebook is saying the same thing.
“Share my page!”
“Like my page!”
“COMMENT ON MY STUFF!!!!!”
Sorry. I’m not going to be any different. Facebook likes to hide pages from news feeds, so you miss out on so much awesome content and things that we want to share with you, our readers, and in turn our pages don’t get the exposure we want, and it’s hidden even more.
Ugh. Talk about a vicious circle!
For me though, gaining likers on Facebook isn’t about the numbers. I like engagement. I like talking with you, getting your ideas, your input and hearing your “voices”. Whether I had 100 or 10,000 likes this wouldn’t change. However, the reality is that we as artists want, and need, our pages to be out there in news feeds and we all want to grow our audiences. I don’t just want 1000 likes though. Likes are really lovely but you’re more than just a number on a screen. I know that every single like belongs to a real person, with a real story, and I want to get to know those people. I want 1000 engaged, communicative, involved fans.
So, here’s what I’m going to do.
For every 100 new likes that I gain between now and 1000 likes, I’ll give away a piece of jewellery.
Yep. That’s six new pieces going to new homes. There is a condition though. I need you, my lovely fans, to be liking, commenting and sharing my Facebook posts. By doing that, we’ll surely hit the targets faster, right? Your participation is necessary for this to work.
The breakdown of how this will work is as so:
- Giveaways will be held within a week (7 days) of hitting each target.
- Items will be chosen by me. No shipping costs will apply and I’ll ship to anywhere. (Taxes and customs charges are, as always, the responsibility of the winner).
- A special post will go up on the page announcing that we’ve hit a target. Winners will be chosen from the people who comment on that post
I won’t message winners because Facebook considers this spam, so you’ll need to be checking in on the page regularly. If you do this every day or even every couple of days and take the time to like or comment on post or two, you’ll find that you start to get notifications and see me in your news feeds more often. Facebook will think “Oh, she really DOES want to see this! I’ll show it to her!” You can also click Notifications: All On on the page itself but even this isn’t a guarantee. One thing I have seen that works quite well is to click the See First option (both of these options are located in the drop down menu next to the Liked button). However, nothing beats good old fashioned participation and engagement!
That’s it! Super duper easy, right?!? Pop over to my Facebook page to give me a thumbs up and say hello….and remember to share the love. The more you share, the faster we hit these targets!
Lots of love,
