To be fair, this is Day 1 of me taking this seriously but not the actual first day of creating the page. I spent the first 100 days inconsistently posting content to the page. In this post, I’ll walk you through everything I did to get to this point.
From this point forward, for the sake of the case study, I’ll be consistently documenting everything here. My goal is to grow this Facebook page to $4,000/month in profit. I have no clue how long it will take but I’m CONFIDENT it can be done. I’m hoping for under 100 days.
You’ll get all of the behind the scenes step by step details of how to grow and monetize a Facebook page. The link to the next post will be at the bottom.

How To Create A Facebook Page
Mega Yorkies was created October 17, 2019. I have a yorkie mix and figured my next viral Facebook page would be about something that I know a little bit about.
I knew right off the bat that I needed to start with strong branding. The word “Mega” doesn’t mean the yorkies are bigger. I simply noticed that it has a ring to it and can be easily remembered.
Go to Facebook.com/pages
You simply fill out the information like the name and the category for the page. You also need to upload a profile picture and header. I got my images from a free stock photo site and made it look nice on canva.com. There may be some other details that you need to fill out. Don’t put too much thought into it. You’ll likely change it later.
Create a Facebook group to link to your page
I didn’t do this until the very end when I built my other page but I noticed that groups get more engagement. You can share all of your posts from the page to the group to help improve the reach. It works like crazy once you have a few hundred people in the group. Don’t focus on building it up though because that will come with time after you build the page.
Consistently create engaging content and share with related Facebook groups
This is the FREE and fastest way to get people to like your page. You have to find a bunch of groups that are in your niche. Some of the moderators may not approve your posts but most will.
I’d be lying if I told you that it didn’t annoy me when my posts get denied. I mean you’re sharing yorkie content to a yorkie group. It shouldn’t be a problem.
Your posts should include a caption that drives engagement. More engagement = more views to the post. You can find content to curate on Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook groups. Just make sure to give the original creator credit in your post.
From 10/17/19 until today, we’ve accumulated 193 likes using the methods above. We’ll count this all as day 1. Anytime someone liked or commented on a post, we invited them to like the page. This worked wonders.
In our next session, we’ll schedule out a few days worth of content AND start running some Facebook ads to build social proof.
Basically, once people start seeing other people liking the page, they’ll start liking it as well. Facebook will start recommending our page to people who they think will enjoy it once they see us picking up traction.
We may even buy a domain name and set up a quick landing page to start collecting emails. I think the list will play a huge part in us monetizing. It may be too soon for this. Not sure yet. Either way. Tune in.
