Building connections with other pages is so much more important than whatever couple of clicks you will get by posting on other people’s pages. Here are a couple strategies that I utilize.
1) Try to find a contact. Often a page will have its website in their info, and if you visit it you can find contact information. Reach out and try to connect with the page owner this way. Offer something of value. If the page owner themselves ends up promoting you, you will get so much more visibility!
2) Tag a page that is a good connection in a post on your page. The page admin will see this and may reciprocate.
3) Look for pages that have a high level of posts by other people, but none from the actual page owner. These are often in very generic words, people, etc. Often this is a page that has been abandoned by the owner. Since lots of people are visiting the actual page (rather than just seeing things in their stream), you will probably get at least a few eyeballs, and if your post is really good you might just be able to get them to come check out your page.
4) Comment in an existing thread rather than just on the wall. Add value to a conversation that is already going on on the wall. People who have already commented will be sent a notification, and are more likely to see your post and interact.
Wow, realizing I have a lot to say about this. I think I just found one of my webinar topics for the next couple months.
