Facebook ‘Get More Fans with SMS’

If you’re a business or brand and you have a Facebook Fan Page, then you probably know how important it is to grow the fans on your page.  And the best way to maximize the growth of your Facebook Fan Page is to leverage every tool available.  SMS (or text messaging) is one unique, and very effective, way to increase the fans on your Facebook Fan Page.

Get More Fans with SMS

You can now tell people they can become a fan of your Facebook Fan Page simply by sending a text message (SMS).

Tell people to text “fan XXXXXX” to 32665 (FBOOK) from their mobile phones, and they will be added as fans instantly.

Replace the XXXXXX with the name of your Facebook Fan Page.

For example, my Facebook Fan Page is “SocialSEO”.

So people can become a fan by texting “fan socialseo” to 32665 (FBOOK), and they will be added a fan.

How To Set Up Facebook’s Get More Fans with SMS

In order for you to utilize Facebook’s Get More Fans with SMS feature, your mobile phone has to be activated for Facebook’s SMS features.

To activate your phone, simple send “fb” (without quotes) to 32665 (FBOOK).

You’ll receive a confirmation text with a code.  This code must be entered to confirm your mobile phone.

However, in the text message you received, you should see a link.  Just click that link and you’ll be taking to the mobile version of the confirmation page – if you are not already signed into Facebook, you will be asked to sign in first.

Once you’ve confirmed your code, your mobile phone is now activated for your Facebook profile and you can start becoming a fan of any page by simply texting “fan XXXXXX” to 32665 (FBOOK) – it’s that easy.

Likewise, I would encourage you to start advertising the “Become a fan via SMS” feature for your Facebook Fan Page.

You’d be amazed at how many people are on the mobile phones and will simply send a text message to become a fan of your Fan Page.
