How To Join A Facebook Fan Page
By Text Message (SMS)
Here’s a neat little trick for advertising your fan page that you may not have seen yet!
Your Facebook Fans can join your Facebook Fan Page by text (sms) message.
You will need to get your first 25 fans and secure your page’s Vanity URL/username.
Then you fans can join the Page by texting:
32665 (spells FBOOK) with “like yourfanpageusername”
(Remove the quotes and don’t forget the space).
The only real restriction is that it seems to work only with USA phones and that the phone must already be associated (verified) with the Facebook account.
Not sure if you’ve associated your mobile phone with your Facebook account yet? You can check by going to the Mobile tab of the My Account Settings page.
This handy little trick is awesome for when your addressing a live audience on stage, webinar, television or radio! Simply have everyone get out their mobile phones and join your page by texting “like yourfanpageusername” to 32665. I’ve also seen this being made great use of as a sign in restaurants or other offline locations. It’s an easy way for your patrons to become fans!
That’s all folks, simple as that!
Taking the Headaches Out of Internet Marketing
PS: What’s SUPER cool about this trick is that it’s sort of a “hack” (workaround) because it will let you like pages even when you are at the friend/like cap and otherwise unable to like any page.
