I just can't resist using "weird trick" headlines ... there's something so infuriatingly captivating about those stupid ads.
Anyway, I digress. Here is a genuinely useful way to get some more likes to your business Facebook page at no extra cost.
When you make a post of any type to your business page, it will receive likes from your existing audience (provided you've got enough likes on your page and engagement to actually get some reach).
It's also normal that you'll pick up likes on your posts from people who don't actually like your page. These people will have seen your post in their timeline because a friend liked it, or they found it on someone's profile, or Facebook's algorithm decided they should see that post.
And you can capitalise on these "post likers" to get them to like your page!
Click on the line under your post that says something like "John Doe & 100 others liked this". A box will appear on your screen with the photos & names of everyone who liked the post on your page. Next to each name should be a little box that says "liked", "invited" or "invite" depending on the person's status.
Click "invite" where applicable and a notification will be sent to that person asking them to like your page. Not everybody will say yes ... but for something that takes 5 minutes work a day you'll find that this strategy can yield a decent number of extra likes to your page for no additional cost.
There is a limit to how many times you can do this every 24 hours. It seems like Facebook limits you to inviting around 200 people per day to like your page. Most smaller businesses aren't going to hit this limit, so don't worry about it too much. But if you're dealing with posts that have a lot of likes, then this is something to bear in mind.
