Stop Begging Customers To “Like” You. Build A Better Facebook Page

I do it. You do it. We all do it. We want all of our customers (and cousins, uncles, aunts, brothers and sisters) to Like our Facebook pages.

We know that the more Likes you have are some indication of the traction our business Facebook pages are getting online.

Instead of begging customers to Like your Facebook page (as exemplified in the video below from North Social) why not build a better Facebook page with apps?

Facebook page app creator North Social writes, “brands reeking of desperation when it comes to building their social media street cred look just as shabby”

Basic business Facebook pages are “nice” but with the right tools you can boost its engagement and interaction.

    These are great ideas! Businesses should definitely learn how to leverage Facebook more effectively. And I do hate people who’d constantly bug me to like their page even if I’m not interested in what they’re offering in the first place. It’s a waste of time and effort for them, really. They could be advertising to at least 70 friends who wouldn’t buy anything from them at any given point in time.
