What if you could make it easier for people to “like” your Facebook page?
I used to ask people to “like” my Facebook page the hard way.
Have you been doing it this way too?
The hard way to get Facebook likes for your page
In the scenario above a Facebook user first needs to click on the name of the page to get to the page proper. Once there then they can “like” it. Cumbersome.
It can also be a bit confusing. Sometimes people just “like” the status rather than actually going to the page. Now that does help spread the word but it doesn’t always get your Facebook page the “likes” you need. Especially when you’re trying to obtain a custom Facebook URL for your page.
How to get new Facebook Likes the easy way
Instead of linking to the Purple Rep page, Mariah tagged the page in her status update. Now hovering over the Purple Rep tag brings up a window in which you can easily “like” the page without having to go to the page itself. Cool.
Here’s how you tag your page in a status update
Just follow the instructions in the image above to tag your page in a status update. Your status update with tags will then look like this:
Now all a person has to do is hover over the tagged name. This brings up a box that allows people to click “like” right from the update.
Pretty cool eh? That’s how you get more Facebook “likes” the easy way.
NOTE: If you already like the Page, you won’t see the “Like” button.
Just tag instead of link! Oh, and if you like music you can “like” my new Manic Joy page here:
How about you? Am I the only one doing things the hard way? Tell me in the comments.
