    Social media
    is taking over the world these days. Millions of people are connected with each other using social media site. One of the most famous social media sites is called Facebook. It is one of the widely used sites all over the world. Billions of people are a part of this huge community and are continuously joining it. Along with many other benefits of social media site, one of the most important ones is marketing. A business marketer can get lots of customers by marketing on Facebook.

    According to the latest updates of Google, it’s now considering social media presence as a ranking factor. Therefore, one can also get good rankings of the site by using social media sites. Now let’s get back to the original topic. So Facebook is currently offering a lot of marketing tools. These are necessary for marketing properly in their community. Due to lots of members on their site, one can get amazing results from a single campaign.

    One of the most effective ways of marketing your business is having a page. Facebook is offering the service of creating a page for your business or site. It is free to create a page but you need to get likes on it. In order to add members to your page, Facebook calls it as like. If a person likes your page, Hershel will be added to your community. Whenever you share something on your page, it will be shared to all of the members. That’s why the more people who like your page, the better will be the results of your marketing.

    Now, how do you get likes?

    You can get likes by two different methods. One by running an advertisement on Facebook or you can also buy them from people. Facebook offers the service of putting an advertisement on their community. It takes money from you for doing this and cycles your product/post on their community. You can set the target audience for your campaign and the age group of people. Also, you can set the interest of the people to which your campaign will be shown. This has an immense increase in the likes of your page if you use this feature properly. Selecting the right audience for your product/service being promoted has lots of importance in this field.

    How to buy Facebook likes?
    Many people in the Facebook community are selling likes for pages. Many websites are being created especially for selling likes to people for their pages. However, their costs are very high and a new business can’t afford those rates. A thousand likes can cost you more than $30. Seems like it's affordable, but estimate about how much you have to pay for a million likes or let’s just say about a few thousand. It will be thousands of dollars for the likes of your pages.

    Should you buy likes from people?
    I am not inside of buying likes from websites for your pages. They are not only expensive but also irrelevant sometimes. You can’t guarantee the likes will be from real profiles. They can also be given to your by fake profiles. You can’t do anything after buying the likes from those people.
    Another fact that should be focused on is that Facebook monitors such activity. They don’t like people who buy likes outside of Facebook. If you do so, you will be strictly dialed with their team and they will remove the likes too.

    So what should you do now?
    Now you will ask me what to do then? Where do we get trusted people for getting likes? Or is it bad to buy likes from people? Let me tell you that not all people will scam you. If you search on Google you will get lots of trusted sites, who provide legit likes to people. You can check reviews of people about the site on Google. But the fact I don’t prefer this is, due to the costs. A legit site providing real likes will charge you huge costs. If you can afford it for your pages, you can go for it.

    At that time, you should prefer Facebook Ads for your marketing. You can get good results but marketing through their system. It would be a cheaper way of getting likes on your Facebook Page.

    Don't believe those ads that tell you to buy Facebook likes for example 1000 for just $5. In the end, those who sell you these Facebook likes at cheap price would outsource to places like SEO Clerk where you can get the same 1000 Facebook likes for $1. If it really help in SEO, it would not be that cheap. The search engine already know this trick don't buy likes or followers but find ways to get them naturally.

    Actually what I know is Mark Zuckerburg and his employees don't care about the likes or pages, people lives. They don't have a good support and their advertisers are complained at so many places.
    You have mentioned two ways for getting Facebook likes, however we can trade from Like exchanging sites, but all these likes are not worth at all unless we get real likes from people.
    If we get 100 likes from real people then, their would be atleast a 10 percent of engagement.

    Buying Facebook likes may give a good impression for your website to your audience who are frequent visitor of your Facebook profile. The issue is to realize whether these likes would be stable or will it be not?
    And the answer is it will not be stable. I disagree if someone says Google keeps this in account for how many likes you received. But the major issue with the paid likes is they cannot be stable. Thus, it gives a wrong impression to the viewer since it will be in decreasing order no matter what. A sudden decline of the likes (as a user belief) gives you no profit and it may sounds you drop of the business.

    You are right, exchanging likes from sites is same like buying them. The difference is exchanging doesn't cost you money but buying costs you. However, the effects of both of these likes are same which is useless. Proper engagement can't be made by those likes. One should avoid both of them but especially exchanger sites or bots for getting Facebook likes.

    if you buy facebook likes then it may help you to leave an impression about your website on people. but why pay when you alone can make your website popular among peoples.
    you should promote your website on social networking sites and also start building your link on others website so that people can also visit your website.
    try to find good keywords for your website.

    Keep in mind buying any thing to promote your campaigns always hate by Google. Even buying Facebook Likes, buying YouTube views, buying Twitter Followers, buying Like on Google+1, buying Links (Paid Links) all kick back by Google.

    Buying them is OK because it makes your page look bigger. However, the likes will be inactive which smart people catch on to. They will see you have 10,000 likes but NO ONE comments or likes any of your posts.

    I don't see the relevance of a thousand likes if your page is inactive. I would rather have a community in my page than a thousand likes without comments. So in that sense, I don't prefer buying likes, they are a total waste of time for me. Plus, the cost of buying them surely isn't worth it.

    You're better of getting some revenues from ads. This way, with every click you get, you earn a few cents. I don't think having many likes warrants earnings. It's just a way to make people think that your page is popular. But it cannot earn you money even if you have a million fake likes if no one is clicking your links.

    Facebook is a marketing channel and it can be extremely effective.But it needs time and commitment like any other marketing strategy.
    Many experts are told that buying Facebook Likes is a total waste of time & money.
    Because buy Facebook like is not organic. Buying Facebook like is often a question of ethics and trust and won’t do your reputation any favours.

    You need quality followers and connection. Quantity is just a number that does not have any effect on your sales or traffic. If you buy likes through third party websites, you will have more followers but these followers will not care what you are posting via your page.
