Ever wanted to get people excited about “liking” your Facebook page? Make it an epic quest with the new Like Meter widget!
The Like Meter widget is a graphic bar that fills up as new users “like” your page, allowing you to set a goal for new fans and show progress towards that goal.
KSL News Radio is currently using this widget for a charitable promotion. For each new “like” on their fan page, KSL is donating $1 to help injured veterans and their families. Each new “like” is making a difference, so you know KSL’s fans are going to share the promotion with as many people as possible!
You can do the same thing. How do you get people excited about filling the Like Meter? Incentives, incentives, incentives. Offer to make a charitable donation, publish a special coupon, or throw an exclusive party if fans fill the meter.
The Like Meter also allows for cross-promotion between Facebook pages. By adding additional URLs to the widget, you can count “likes” from multiple pages. When pages encourage their fans to “like” fellow sponsors, it can be one of the most effective ways of obtaining new fans.
Obviously these aren’t the only ways to use the Like Meter, so be creative! We hope you’re as excited as we are about the Like Meter widget. To try it out, log into your Customizer account, or sign up for a free trial.
