Brands on Facebook have found success without paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to do so. By promoting fan-created content, paying attention to engagement, and figuring out what their audiences want, Facebook pages can become more popular. Dennis Yu, founder of BlitzMetrics, and Lisa Buyer, CEO of The Buyer Group, spoke at the AllFacebook Marketing Conference in San Francisco Wednesday about ways that pages have gone beyond the goal of fan acquisition to truly excel within the social network.
Want to get people to like, share, comment, repost and talk about what you post on your page? Post a picture. Panelists at the “Facebook Places: Deals and Store-Level Marketing,” discussion at the AllFacebook Marketing Conference Thursday in San Francisco agreed that photos and personal engagement with fans usually leads to success.
Elaine Mesker-Garcia, who manages social media for Fuddruckers and Luby’s, talks about the difference between running corporate pages and franchisee pages on Facebook.
