Invite to Like Facebook Page by Email

You may or may not be familiar with a feature that recently changed “Invite by Email”, well recently I found this option was missing when I tried to use it on Vero Vine. I had used it before. Facebook moved some things around again.

It all resides under “Suggest Page”. Here you can use various lists of contacts to invite people to Like your page. In this case, I want to export all email subscribers from Mailchimp to like the VV Facebook page. You want to be sure they are subscribers of some type before inviting as Facebook will email those email not on Facebook for you as the invitation as well as “suggest” to those already using Facebook.

How do I suggest my Page to my email contacts?

 

You can upload your email contacts so that they’ll be more likely to see a suggestion to like your Page on Facebook.

To suggest your Page to your email contacts:

  1. Click on your Page’s cover photo
  2. Select Suggest Page
  3. Upload a file or choose your email service and follow the on-screen instructions

Your Page may be suggested to your contacts who are on Facebook in places like Recommended Pages. If your email contacts aren’t on Facebook, they won’t see your suggestion.

Keep in mind that you can upload contacts up to 5 times for a maximum of 7,000 contacts per day per Page. You can upload a maximum of 5,000 contacts at a time.
