Let your fans know about something going on behind the scenes. For example, post photos or a video of a project in progress.

People love a quick inspiring or motivational quote. You’ll be surprised how much a good one gets shared.


Celebrate when you hit a certain number of fans. Or if you are close to a certain number, ask fans to recommend your page to their friends and help get you there.
