Facebook is a goldmine – for those who know how to mine. Dessert Gallery Bakery & Cafe is one such company. Based in Houston Patriots Malcom Brown Jersey , Texas, it found that store visits increased by 36% because they had a Facebook fan page. Additionally, customers who were their Facebook fans spent 45% more, and company loyalty increased by 41%.

As a result, restaurant sales went up 40%, and he was able to keep the doors of St. Pete Brasserie restaurant open, as well as attract potential investors.
What is it about Facebook fan pages that have the capability to increase business revenues, and even turn around failing businesses? Here is a list of 9 ways that marketing on Facebook using fan pages can add to your bottom line:
1) Possibility of spreading your message virally. Though Facebook has removed its “Suggest to Friends” feature Patriots Deatrich Wise Jr. Jersey , there are other ways of spreading your message and creating a viral effect. Posting status updates that engage fans can also engage fans’ friends. When a status update is sent from a fan page, it shows up the fans’ newsfeeds, and this is often how they see it. It also allows their friends to see the status update, and potentially join the fan page. There are also scripts available which allow friends to invite friends to invite friends, and so on, that can explode the fan base. And, of course, the more fans Patriots Antonio Garcia Jersey , the more eyes on your message, the more potential revenue.
2) Traffic to your website. If you have a website with the same productservice as your fan page, linking the two together is a great way to get more traffic to the website. People visit Facebook often – every day, sometimes several times a day – to see what their friends are doing, to play games, look at photos, etc. How many websites can boast similar levels or varieties of engagement?
If a fan wants more info on your companybrand, while on your fan page Patriots Derek Rivers Jersey , they can click on the Info tab, see links to your website, and possibly click on one. Thus, more eyes will potentially see the products and services on your website.
3) Being engaging. Fans love to and want to be engaged. Engage them and they’ll generally come back for more. Asking them an open-ended question, giving a poll, setting up a contest and announcing the winner with perhaps a testimonial from said winner, allowing fans to post comments and upload pictures, informing of new products Patriots Duke Dawson Jersey , services, and specials – these are all ways to engage fans and keep them coming back for more. You want them to think, “I wonder what’s going on with XYZ today,” so that they check your fan page regularly for updates.
4) Low-cost marketing with potential high yields. A fan page can cost a few hundred dollars to build, and perhaps a few hundred more to get seed fans. This in comparison to websites, which cost hundreds to thousands more, and offline businesses, which cost tens of thousands more. After the building Patriots Sony Michel Jersey , maintenance, which is hugely important, is done by status updates as mentioned above.
Here is an example of a status update that could lead to high yields: let’s say a fan page on spa services has 2,000 fans. A status update that says, “15% discount on all services this week! Simply mention REWARDS when paying and we’ll set you up,” can bring in a surge of customers and bookings that week or longer.
Another example: A fan page about chocolate could highlight one of their products: “Famous ABC chocolate, now selling at $2 per bar, shipping included. Get some for your significant other Patriots Isaiah Wynn Jersey , to celebrate special occasions, or just because. Order here [link to chocolate store].” Say there are 5,000 fans, and 1,000 people actually see the status update. Of the latter, 50 people choose to order an average of 3 bars each. That would be $300 generated from posting that one status. In addition, friends of your fans see your status update from your fans’ newsfeeds. So, let’s say that 200 friends of your fans see the status update in their newsfeed and become fans. Of those Women's Jordan Matthews Jersey , 15 order chocolate worth a total of $60. This means that one status update was worth $360 plus 200 fans. Now, imagine if there are 10,000 or 15,000 fans. The yield of one status update multiplies.
