Facebook Fans: bought or committed?

I still see fans pages who have purchased Facebook Fansto increase their number of LIKE.

A very common practice. For a small amount of $, you can increase your Fan page to 10,000 at a very high speed. I admit this can be very tempting. With an old Fan page that no longer exists, I already tested this because I had to see if people who sell these services were honest or not, if the fans real or not. And more, if it was going to do something good to my page and transform it.

A big mistake to do would be to buy lists of Fans. Why? The majority are not real Fans. They are fake profiles. Some people are making a business out of it. With Facebook, you can create as many profiles you want. With Google image you can find photos of women and men as much as you want. With Gmail and hotmail, you can create as many email addresses that you want to. Then when someone mentions that you can buy targeted fans by country, it still can be fake profiles.

The funniest thing I have seen is seeing 2 different profiles names with the same picture!  The worst is saw is profile picture of people I know with a different name! Which means that someone has stolen their photo! How to see if it is a fake profile? Click on it and the majority of the time, you will see on the home page, dozens and dozens of new fan pages LIKES, no other activities.

Why people would buy Fans to increase their number of LIKE?

Simply because they believe that more their number is high, better credibility they have. And in fact, this is what they heard from some supposedly experts. Well no, it is not true. It is who you are and how you can help people who give you more credibility and you will see, like by magic, your numbers of LIKES will grow fast because you will get references.

Committed Fans

Be patient! More you will be building your list of Fans and take care of them, more you will get the results you are looking for. Share your page with friends, join groups that also allows you to talk about your page, share tips from your expertise, comment on other pages, join Facebook events, publish new things every day on your page. Post inspiring images, open questions and also tips in your area of expertise. These are the things where people participate the most and where they will share more likely your page. Initially, this will require lots of your time. However, in the long term, you will see your number of Fans increasing at a lightning speed.

What are the results you are looking for?

Are you ready to do whatever it takes to get what you want?

What do you think: will you get these results with fake profiles or with real people involved?

Your choice!

To your success,
