This thread was started a while back and every answer I've seen points out to crafting high-quality content that's valuable and relevant. This is still true to this day but it's important to consistently give out valuable content. Participate in different discussions that are related to your industry to grow your network and organically gain followers

It will take time to gain followers that's why we need to establish first the profile by providing consistent interesting information in which will help them in many ways.

IMHO - it depends!

If you can generate some excitement with interesting, unique posts that link to real, authoritative content, then you might be able to get some action on Facebook.

I think what makes people yawn is the junky, me-too daily posts that so many marketers are doing these days.

One thing I am seeing with my own clients is success with video uploaded to Facebook. Not linked from Youtube - new, fresh videos uploaded directly to Facebook. The talking head variety 2 - 5 minutes every couple of days has done far better than any advertising.

If you have quality content with copyrights. You'll gain followers very fast. People like to see original content even if maybe is not so good as others but you are different than others and that's valuable.

i used to do advertising for small companies that advertised in FB and aside from the ads you find at the sides and in between post feed, they also promote the articles they have via sharing and promoting. It's kinda tricky getting things go viral (if that's your perception of good advertising) but we usually accomplish this using click baits like catchy titles and nice pictures. People are generally visual creatures so get creative with that.
