I've previously explained why I think this is a bad (read: terrible) marketing strategy. With the thread now at 24 pages, I'm genuinely curious...does anyone have a legitimate reason why this mutual Liking is a good strategy?

It's better with your personal page. Otherwise the "likes" won't show.

Yes,

I did a little testing by making a "fake" personal page without liking any pages I typed in lawn along with my area. What came up was my business page at the top, along with a couple others from my area. My page only has around 40 likes, but the others had 5 or 10. The more likes you have, the greater chance of being at the top when a search is done. If people use Facebook to find a company like they would Google, why would you not make a page and get as many likes possible? It's probably the best/only way to get people to see your company info without you spending a dime.

Because those inflated Likes significantly dilutes your marketing pool? Would you run a print ad if you knew your newspaper would only deliver it to 5% of the houses, while assuring you that half of those 5% would be fellow LCOs?

I don't follow what your getting at. If I have 50 other LCOs that like my page, and only 30 potential customers that like my page they are still seeing what I post. I don't see how it dilutes the marketing pool at all. Besides, what if some of the LCOs have family members in my area that may want work done?
