To buy fans or not to buy fans that is the question
eTo Buy Fans or Not to Buy Fans that is the Question!
You now have the option of beefing up your fan base by buying Facebook likes. But should you?
Bottom line, the juice is not worth the squeeze and I’ll tell you why.
First off, I know that increasing likes on a business page is a huge pain. At times you can feel
defeated. Here’s the scenario: It’s like you threw a party and invested a lot of time and a little
money into it. You made your famous guacamole; cleaned up the house. You stacked red cups
on the kitchen counter, ready to be filled with your famous Jungle Juice. You are even wearing a
crisp clean shirt. 7:00 pm rolls around no one is showing up…7:15…7:30 finally the doorbell
rings. It’s your mom, a couple of people from work with and your sister. No one else shows up.
And to top it off anyone in the neighborhood who wants to look, knows that you have no friends.
So you sit in front of your computer and Google “buy friends for my cocktail party.” You
purchase 1000 party people for 59 bucks, seems like a good deal. Saturday rolls around. Party
time. The doorbell rings. The usual suspects show up; your mom, a couple of people you work
with and your sister, she brings a friend who is very interested in your Jungle Juice, score!
Behind your usual suspects is a long line of unusual ones: 300 people from India, 200 from
Russia and 300 from Florida, you live in California. During the party none of the guests engage
with you, no one is eating your guacamole and the only glasses that are full are your family and
coworkers. Again, another bust.
Are you kinda catching on?
You want to sell to people, not buy people!
The whole point of having a Facebook page is to engage with customers and to turn those
engagements into sales. Marketing to the masses and gaining facebook likes is not an easy
pursuit, it takes work. Facebook is not the holy grail of sales nor is it a machine pumping out
brand loyalists. What it is, is a tool, one of many, to use to market and expand your target
You Don’t Gotta Pay to Play!
Like anything that brings results you have to work at it and mold it to maturity. As a small
business it is especially hard because you may be comparing yourself to all of those big brands
with millions of friends who are truly reaping the rewards that Facebook can bring. You are not
Skittles, you are not Geiko and you are definitely not Lady Gaga. What you are or should be is a
business who values transparency and customer service; you are selling a quality product
whether it be hamburgers or real estate. One thing that is so amazing about Facebook is that you
have the ability to market on the same platform as those big companies. You can have an
awesome profile pic, kick A#$ tabs and content that keeps people engaged and entertained. The
fact of the matter is, that you probably don’t deserve, maybe deserve is the wrong word, but
really, to have 1,000s or millions of fans. You most likely didn’t spend millions of dollars in
marketing year after year and you sure as hell didn’t spend 5 million plus on a Super Bowl
commercial. Unlike television, magazine, newspaper and radio advertising, Facebook does not
require a big budget to succeed.
But I Want More Fans!
I know it’s tempting to purchase fans. What’s 60 bucks when you are talking about a marketing
budget? Nothing and if you want to try it out I have included a list of places you can purchase
fans. Let us know how it works. But keep this in mind, again, the success of Facebook and really
any social platform is engagement not how many fans you have. You can have a hundred friends,
but if none of them care about you or what you do or what you have to say then at the end of the
day who cares, obviously none of them. You still fail. The key is to just do what you do and
consistently put passion into each post, each video, each picture and each customer otherwise
known as a fan. And for god’s sake stop checking your Facebook page with the same fear you
had in grade school when you thought that you were going to get picked last for dodgeball. I
promise, if you put in the time and effort, eventually people will come to your party, especially
when they discover that you make a mean Jungle Juice.
