The main reason I say this is that it totally lacks what you should be striving for: engagement.

While you may boost your numbers slightly, those who like you just to receive a reciprical like, will be hollow followers and probably have very little on-going interest or engagement with you or your page. And real engagement is what you should be striving for.

The reason you want someone to like or follow you is they find a compelling reason to do so - they see true merrit in your product/service, think you could be useful to them, they find the content you are providing exceptional, or other compelling reason.

Not just because they will get a like or follow in return.

A better way to go is to provide outstanding content and advice (for free) and make yourself useful, even indespensable. That's how you get engaged fans.

Looking forward to finding out more about you and what you do.

Agree With you mate! that there no benefit in getting merely fans from whom you cann't generate even a single lead. Increasing fans like this would only increase you in numbers , but not in dollars that is something we all are looking for.
