C&T Q&A ~ 5 Tips for Increasing Likes and Engagement on Facebook {VIDEO}

This month’s question comes from Grace, who writes:

I would love to know any alternatives you may have to giveaways. My facebook group is approaching the baby goal of 50 likes (6 away!). I want to drum up some chatter and draw some new likes. I know givealways don’t always draw the type of people who’ll stay in your tribe long term so I would love to hear your thoughts on the topic.

Alternatively I am open to any suggestions on how to grow a thriving and interactive facebook following.

Thanks so much,


I totally agree, Grace – giveaways can be fun, but they’re not a consistently useful way to bring in new fans that will stick around – nor will they help increase engagement over the long term.

So – what will?

In this video I share 5 ideas for types of content that WILL help to increase engagement on your page – and by increasing engagement, you increase the likes that are coming your way.

If you have any Facebook engagement strategies that have worked well for you, we’d love to hear about them in the comments!
