Whether you’re just getting started with your Facebook Business Page or getting serious about growing your audience for an existing page, inviting your personal contacts to like your business page is a great way to start to gain new followers.
To invite your personal contacts to like your page, you need to make sure you’re currently using Facebook as you and not your store. You can tell who you are currently using Facebook as by look at the top right of your page. If your store profile picture and name are showing, you’ll need to switch to using Facebook as yourself.
To switch, you’ll need to click on the settings button at the very top right of the page, and select your personal page from the list.
When you click on this it will take you back to your personal profile. From here, click on the “Home” button.
Then click on your store in the list on the left side of the page.
You should now be on your Facebook Business page, but see your personal profile picture and name in the top bar. Next, click on the “Build Audience” button and select the “Invite Friends” option.
Make sure the “Invite Friends” modal is set to “Search All Friends”. You can now scroll through all of your personal Facebook friends and select the one’s you’d like to invite to like your Facebook business page. Pro tip: You don’t have to just click on the checkbox to select a name. You can click anywhere on their profile picture or name.
