How To Invite People To Like a Facebook Page

It’s no secret that Facebook is one of the most powerful tools for businesses, brands, and creators to connect with their fans. What may be less known, however, is how to get people to like your page in the first place.

In this article, we’ll explore different ways how to invite people to like a Facebook page and why it’s important to do so.

Why you should invite people to like your Facebook page

If you want to grow a Facebook page, it’s important to know how to get people to like it.

When people like your Facebook page, they’re more likely to see your updates in their newsfeeds, and that means more exposure for your page. It also means more people are exposed to the message you want them to see, which is half the battle in growing your audience.

If people see your posts, then they have the possibility of engaging with them. And when they engage it can help it get seen by more people organically for free.

It’s true that there is nothing wrong with having a Facebook page where only a handful of people like it. However, if you’re trying to build up an audience for future campaigns or outreach efforts, inviting people right off the bat is an easy way to do just that.

There are two ways to get people to like a Facebook page:

  1. You can invite Facebook friends to like your page.
  2. You can invite people who react to your posts to like your page.

Should you invite Facebook friends to like your page?

Before we look at exactly how to invite people to like your Facebook page, you need to consider if inviting friends to like your page will actually be beneficial to page growth or not.

The main thing you need to consider is if your friends will be interested in what you’re posting.

If you’re constantly sharing cat videos or memes that your friends don’t care about, what does it matter if they like your page?

If they aren’t interested in the content you’re posting, then inviting them to like your page won’t actually help you much.

On the other hand, if you’re sharing links to articles, images, info, etc. that your friends do care about, then inviting them to like your page makes sense.

You want to look for friends or Facebook contacts that will have an interest in the content of what you’re posting. Do not just add friends so that it looks like your page is more popular than it is. That will do more harm than good.

Invite people who react to your posts to like your page on Desktop

A great way to grow your Facebook page with people who will engage with your content is to invite the people that are already engaging with your posts.

People can find your page organically, through ads, through other people sharing your content, you share it yourself, etc.

Regardless of how they find it, once they react to your post (by leaving a like, care, etc.) you can then invite those people to like your Facebook page (unless you already have 100,000 Page likes, in which case you cannot invite them anymore).

To invite people who react to your posts to like your page, follow these steps from a desktop device:

Open Facebook.com in a browser and log into your account.

From the menu on the left, select “Pages”.

Select Pages on the left

Go to the desired page by clicking on the profile picture or name of the page.

Now navigate to one of your posts and click on the “reactions” section of the post. I.e. Where you can see who reacted to the post.

Select the reactions on a facebook post

If someone hasn’t already liked your page, you will see an “Invite” button next to their name. Click that button to send them an invitation.

FAQs

What happens when you invite someone to like your page?

When you invite someone to like your page, they will get a notification in the top right corner of their screen on desktop, or in their notification tab.

If they have previously shown interest in your Facebook page by reacting to one of your posts, for example, they’ll be more inclined to accept your invitation and like your page because of that.

Is the sender notified if you reject an invitation to like a Facebook page?

No, the sender is not notified if you reject an invitation to like a Facebook page.

If you like a page, the admin may receive a notification saying that you have liked the page if they have their notifications set to show this. But if they reject the invitation, regardless of their notification settings, they will not be notified.

Why is the invite button unavailable on my Facebook page?

This means that you have reached your limit of 100,000 Page likes. At this point, Facebook does not allow admins to invite people who have already liked the page to like it again.

If I keep inviting people to like my Facebook page, will these invites expire?

No, invitations are not time-sensitive and do not expire. Once you have sent an invitation, it will remain available for the invited friend to use until they either accept or reject it.

Final thoughts on inviting people to like your Facebook page

Inviting people who have reacted to your posts is a great way to grow your Facebook page. This process is simple and easy to do and can be done from both a desktop and mobile device.

In contrast to inviting your Facebook friends, these are users that have actually shown interest in the content you have shared.

If you promote posts or run Facebook ads, this is also a great way to make sure you’re getting the most bang for your buck as these people can be retargeted for free through organic posts if they accept your invitation.

Remember that the quality of the likes your receive is better than the quantity when you are trying to grow your Facebook page.
