Back in May 2012 I created a Facebook page which I did nothing with, it had only one like which was mine.
I thought I’d see how quickly I could grow an audience from nothing. I didn’t coerce my friends or family to like it, I just used Facebook ads.
I began running Facebook ads at $5/day from 11 Jan 2013, nothing too crazy.
Roughly ten days later I have 605 likes of real, targeted fans and it’s still growing.
So what’s the takeaway from this?
- Don’t be a cheapskate, invest in your social media
- Ads are the fastest way to reach a new audience on Facebook.
