Contrary to popular belief, there are fast and reliable tactics you can use to create rapid growth for your Facebook page. It requires hard work and a little ingenuity, but if you follow the steps from this guide, you can have twice as many followers in a week.
If you want different results from the average digital marketer, you need different methods. This guide will show you how to use a completely different approach from the norm on Facebook for much better results. You won’t share any personal updates or small details. Instead, you’ll focus entirely on the tactic of collaboration, using it to grow your page rapidly.
Give this idea a try if you want to pursue the most potent and productive path forward for your Facebook page.
How Collaborations Can Double Your Page
When you collaborate with another Facebook page, you get exposure with most of their fans. That is a way to reach another group of people equally large as your follower group but made up of different folks. If you do this a bunch of times, you’ll grow much faster than through solo content marketing.
The key is to reach out to a lot of brands at once. If you wait around and only send one message at a time, it can take years to grow your page. Instead, you should cold contact dozens of pages at once, with collaborative material at the ready as soon as someone says yes.
Assertive action and no fear of rejection are the keys here. If you can be confident enough to reach out to a lot of pages and be happy about the 10% that respond, you can use this strategy to great ends.
Reaching Out to Other Pages
Create a list of 20 to 50 other pages on Facebook in your niche with a similar or slightly more influential page compared to yours. The more you list, the more likely you are to succeed.
Craft a unique two- or three-sentence sales pitch for each person. Each pitch should be fresh, as though you walked up to the person and started talking to them. Copying and pasting generic messages is much less effective.
Send all of these pitches at once. Don’t play it slow or wait to see how the first few go before doing more. It’s important to send a considerable number at once, ideally 50 or more, so you can make sure that at least one or two people will get back to you. After all, this is a numbers game.
How to Collaborate
The best way to collaborate is to be ready with material of your own. Create videos and photos which represent your brand and can easily be adjusted to include another brand’s logo. When you reach out to other pages, you can tell them that all they have to do is send over a logo and you’ll send them the finished collaboration. By making it so easy, you increase your likelihood of a response.
When you receive a response, you must get back to them urgently. Check your page three times a day and respond to every inquiry within 12 hours. This attitude nets you bigger and better collaborations over time.
If you do this strategy right and successfully collaborate with 5-10 other pages of similar size to your own, you’ll gain a lot of new followers. It could double your page size if you get a little bit lucky, and even if not, you’ll see a meaningful amount of growth.
There is no need to accept lackluster gains on Facebook when real growth is available via the right method. Use this plan to build your page and reach a much broader audience online.
