The Pros and Cons of Buying Facebook Likes

There are two sides to everything, especially the controversial “Buy Facebook Likes” market. We’ve been using and testing these services for over a year, and we’ve become very familiar with both the Advantages and Disadvantages of buying Facebook likes. Below, you’ll find our detailed list of Pros and Cons. Read them well, and decide for yourself if these services are right for you.

The Pros

  • It’s a great way of Kick-Starting a business’s Facebook Page. Instead of starting from zero, you can start from a few hundred to a few thousand to quickly put things in gear.
  • It helps strengthen your Social Credibility. To put this in simpler terms, You’ll look more reputable so people are more likely to take you seriously, like your page and/or do business with you.
  • Internet Marketing Campaigns are visibly more effective. It’s true. Looking more reputable (as mentioned above) will make Internet marketing campaigns (both on and off social networks) more effective.
  • Online Sales and Conversions increase an average of 20%. Specifically if you have Social Widgets or counters on your website.
  • Natural Facebook Likes increase an average of 40%. This again, is part of the whole ‘Social Credibility’ but we thought it would be important to mention this dramatic boost in organic likes.

The Cons

  • The Likes/Fans are not real people. They are usually inactive accounts. Any company that claims that their Buy Facebook Like service delivers real likes, is lying and should not be trusted.
  • You only get a boost with these services. You still need to market and engage your fans to achieve success. Read our Guide on effectively Managing your Fan Page.
  • It may negatively affect your Page’s Edge Rank, so while you increase your overall fans, you’re decreasing the ratio of “Active” fans.
  • Buying Facebook Likes isn’t exactly the most publicly acceptable practice, so you’ll have to keep things on the down low if you do it.
  • Scams are everywhere. Always read reviews before ordering and avoid newer and cheaper providers, as they will usually offer very low quality results. Read our compiled Scammers List for websites to avoid.
