Every business needs to start from something. When you create your business page on Facebook, it’s very hard to find your first followers. Your new page will probably not attract any new followers if it has zero likes.
You can obviously start a Facebook Ads campaign spending the extra money to find someone who will follow you. But most often new small businesses and start-ups don’t have any extra money to spend. Here is where your friends come to the rescue!
Facebook gives you the opportunity to invite your friends to like your page right after you create it. Don’t hesitate to use this opportunity. Your page will look much better to new visitors if it already has likes and followers. Let’s go through the steps of inviting your friends to like your page on desktop and mobile app.
