Facebook restricts standard page invitations so that you can send them only to users in your friends list. This limitation prevents Facebook users from spamming strangers with invites. But Facebook also provides a separate method for contacting Facebook users: messages. You can send messages to anyone on Facebook, even total strangers, unless they have blocked you or chosen highly restrictive settings. These messages can invite non-friends to like Facebook pages that you administer.

Step 1

Log in to Facebook and navigate to your Facebook page.

Step 2

Click the page's URL in your browser's address bar, and then press "Ctrl-C" to copy it.

Step 3

Navigate to a user's profile using the Facebook search bar.

Step 4

Click the "Message" button below the user's cover photo to open the New Message dialog box.

Step 5

Type an invitation into the box labeled "Write a message." Press "Ctrl-V" to type your page's URL.

Click "Send" to send the invitation.
