We all know that friends are like underwear. Some break under pressure, others are annoying, and others will support us when we're in need. As soon as you finish creating your FB business page a good tip to get more Facebook likes is to invite your friends, colleagues and co-workers to show you some support. This will give your page a certain credibility and initial visibility. If people don't know your page exists, you won't get any "likes".
3- Add some social media plugins to your web page.
Your website visitors should be able to find your Facebook like button easily. Our advice is that you install some of the social plugins that are available from the web for free and can thus collect likes from your page. Some of these plugins can include a "like button", and some photos of your followers that will add authority.
4- Identify your community's interest.
Nowadays its easier than ever to measure and know the type of content and publications that are more successful among your community. Once you know what they want, you should be ready to offer and this will increase the interaction and will have an impact on a larger number of "likes".

We recommend experimenting with different types of ads to find out which ones have better conversion, and make sure you enable the option that can give your page a 'like' directly from the advertisement.
6- Create a Facebook contest.
There are many companies that have created Facebook contests with excellent results, winning thousands of fans over the course of the same, but there are several things you should know before creating a contest.
For the more beginners... you must make sure that your contest complies with the Facebook guidelines for competition. You have to use an application approved by Facebook, as for example Easypromos.

Another important point to keep in mind, is to ensure that the App you're using to create your Facebook contest is adapted to mobile format, which makes it easy for everyone to participate, it doesn't ask too much data from the end user and it encourages even more participation among friends.
7- Like and interact with other companies and communities.
Did you know that for some time now you can interact on Facebook as your own Fan Page? This is a great way to increase your visibility among other communities similar to yours as well as among their followers.
To do this, you must visit your Facebook Page, click on "edit page" and choose "Use Facebook as your Fanpage" from your admin panel.
After having "Liked" a couple of similar pages to yours, their updates will appear in your newsfeed, and from this point on it'll be easier to get more engagement from X or Y brand(s).
8- Publish real attractive content.
It's very important to publish quality content, attractive and above all on an ongoing basis. You should also take a look at which of your posts are receiving more interaction and try to stay in that same line of communication. If your posts are valuable to your fans, they will share them with their friends, helping you to get more likes. Its also a proven fact that posts with images are receive more "likes", so be sure that your posts are not text only. Calls to action from time to time also work very well, asking opinions or opening a debate are also great forms of getting long time followers and subscribers.
9- Be active.
Once you manage to know what type of posts cause more engagement among your Facebook followers the next question is how often should you post? Well, the first thing you should know is that there's no magic formula or a well known practice on Facebook.
Your results will very much depend on your community, routines, etc... but it would be appropriate to post at least once a day. The next step must be to experiment with the hours of your postings to see when the majority of your followers are active. A community full of professionals behind the wheel and a community of workers in social networks is not the same.
What is clear is that if there is no activity on your Facebook page, it will be difficult to get more "Facebook likes". What we recommend is to never make consecutive postings.
10- Measure, analyze and learn.
Learn how to use your Facebook business page statistics dashboard to get personalized recommendations for your company’s Facebook Page.. There you'll find useful data that you can use in your favor. You can see how many users see each one of your postings. These metrics will help you understand the behavior of your community and act accordingly.
