Yesterday I saw that we had crossed the 1,000 Likes mark on the TentBlogger Facebook Page. Now, I created this page on September 21, 2010 which means that it took 662 days to break the 1,000 mark, meaning that I averaged about 1.5 Likes per day over nearly 1 year and 10 months.
As I stand back and look at these figures I realize how incredibly unimpressive that is. Honestly, it’s not very much of a big deal. In fact, it’s probably a slower growth than most Facebook pages (this is just a guess though).
I’m not worried or upset or discouraged by these numbers. In fact, it doesn’t bother me at all, especially when I’m reminded that my decision to focus on one area of social media was purposeful and strategic.
Choose one and kill it is how I typically describe this strategy.
But it does mean that there is an incredible amount of opportunity here if I wanted to spend time growing it organically and optimizing my approach and the community around it. To be sure, I’m not a Facebook Pro or Guru or anything like that so I’m not sure all that it would take but there’s enough free advice out there on the web if I wanted to invest.
But, before that I’d love to hear how some other people have faired with their Facebook pages. What have you done to grow them (or haven’t) and why?
Love to hear from the collective wisdom of the community here!
