Everyone wants to get Facebook likes. No matter how many you have, there is something strangely satisfying and validating to see the numbers of “fans” that you have climb well into the thousands. Maybe it is Facebook’s little trick to call them “fans” and “likes” that works really well to get all of us so pumped to get them.
These days you can buy fans, participate in liking ladders, and basically sell your soul for a little ole’ like, but there is nothing more gratifying than earning a “real” like. And there is no better way to get Facebook likes than to simply ask for them.
How To Use Twitter DM To Get Facebook Likes
Unless you have loads of traffic coming to your blog from the awesome content that you are delivering and just have to stay connected to you through Facebook, you are going to have to come up with a strategy to BUILD your fan base. The one strategy that we have used time and time again and had great success with is the Twitter DM.
What To Say To Get People To “Like” You
Crafting your DM is fairly simple. What you want to do is be very conversational and genuine. And then you want to ask for exactly what you want in a way that is about “connecting” and getting to know more about each other.
Remember, social media is about RELATIONSHIPS. Being genuine is a must. I also like the idea of asking them if they have a page as well. It shows that you are truly interested in connecting, which you should be, not just generating likes.
” Hi, thanks for the follow. Do you have a Facebook Page as well? Here’s my link _________ what’s yours?”
How To Deliver Your DM
Are you using an automated DM on Twitter? You know, when someone follows you they automatically receive a message from you asking you to do something or just making contact with you in some way, perhaps thanking you for the follow? I was torn about using this method to get Facebook likes because I have not been the biggest fan of the automated Twitter DM.
Good news, if you don’t like the auto DM function, you can always do it manually. Make sure you set your twitter settings to send you notifications when someone new follows you and then log in and shoot them a quick DM which should always include a link.
Easy enough? It is such a simple thing, that can have loads of impact.
