Want to avoid costly Facebook ads?
When you develop relationships with others in your niche and experts, your Facebook page can easily grow without advertising.
#1: Guest Curate for Other Pages
Curating content for other pages is a great way to network with other people in your industry, while increasing your own visibility and reach.
Choose 5 to 10 successful Facebook pages run by companies offering services complementary to yours, since they share your target audience. Your expertise will offer real value to their fans. Then offer to curate content for them once a week in return for credit on their page.
#2: Seek Out Promotional Swaps
Search for and list about 30 to 40 Facebook pages for products, services or communities that are complementary to yours. As above, these complementary pages likely share your target audience and have roughly the same number of fans.
#3: Conduct Q&A Sessions With a Twist
Once Facebook introduced the Reply option, conducting a Q&A became a little more interesting.
Invite different experts in your field to answer questions on your Facebook page and rally users to show up and ask questions in real time. Fans can ask questions and interviewees can respond inline, making the Q&A easy to follow.
