IMPORTANT Recommandations ⚠️

You can get up to 400 likes on your posts with only €3 in advertising expenses.

Now, before you rush To reach the wrong conclusions, let me tell you two things:

  • Many of these accounts are created by “click farms” and won't commit
  • Never do this with “like” pages because it will be difficult to retarget with this group of people later. You don't want fake accounts.

The only use case where it's acceptable to follow this strategy is to create a few likes when LAUNCHING a NEW POST.

Go ahead and get 30 likes for 1 cent each. Then, go back to the settings and change the targeting according to your “real” target audience.

Thanks to previous engagement, new people will be more likely to engage with your message through social proof.

Why Are Likes Crucial on Facebook?

A post with numerous likes instantly appears to be popular and worthy of interest in the eyes of users.

They will thus be more likely to be interested in it, consult it and interact with it.

It's called social proof: if many like it, it must be good!

Priority in the Facebook Algorithm

The platform places great importance on quick interactions, and especially likes, to determine the quality and relevance of content.

A post that receives a lot of likes in a short period of time after publication will see its organic reach boosted by the algorithm.

It will thus appear in the news feed of as many of your subscribers as possible.

Snowball and Virality Effects

The first likes received will encourage other users to like, comment and share your post in turn.

It's the snowball effect: one like leads to others, and so on.

Well exploited, this mechanism makes it possible to reach an exponential virality and reach an audience well beyond your community.


By following this tutorial carefully, you are now in able to effectively boost your Facebook posts as soon as they are launched, even if you are a complete beginner in social media advertising.

Remember that this technique should be used sparingly and ethically. Cheap initial likes are just a spark to start the interaction machine.

Your true value lies in the quality of your content and the sincerity of your community engagement.

So get started, experiment, but always keeping your business goals and the interests of your audience in mind.
