I don’t want to overwhelm you, but getting likes is more complex than you think. Of course the number always counts, a like is a like. However you should also consider your target market.
It would really help if you also included a link to your FB page. There are lots of people here who can give you a tip or two on what to improve.
Running ads can definitely help, but if you want to target certain market you should consider joining groups of related niche and sharing some of your posts there. But when sharing always consider the value you give to that audience, and don’t spam them.
Always consider the quality of posts. Something that will start a conversation. IMHO running a contest at your level is not yet ideal. You should first increase the number of fans. One of the page I manage already have 30k fans and we’re still trying to figure out what type of contest to run.
There’s a lot to consider but you’ll figure it out along the way. Don’t be afraid to commit mistakes, when that happens you just have to figure out what you did wrong and think of the right solution.
There’s no exact science to Facebook because it’s constantly changing and people who are on it are unpredictable.
