    • ABOUT NAPKIN LABS We make Facebook apps that empower brands to uncover the passion and creativity of fans. This guide is all about you getting the most out of your fan page (and out of our apps), but this introduction contains a little more info about us, and why we exist. The way brands and customers interact is evolving quickly. The internet has enabled collaboration on a mass scale, creating a medium for brands to connect with customers and host conversations that drive value. This is not social chatter, but meaningful collaborations between brands and customers that build loyalty, advocacy, and drives innovation. The web is becoming a global focus group, and customers are armed with insights, creativity, and passion to collaborate with the brands they love. At Napkin Labs, we believe the creativity and passion of customers is the greatest untapped resource for businesses today. We also believe that building customer relationships goes beyond sweepstakes and coupons, and requires new ways of thinking about marketing. Our Facebook applications were designed to provide brands with a suite of tools to capture ideas, insights, and user generated content that is the foundation for authentic Facebook marketing. But, crowdsourcing and fan engagement can be complex concepts that span far beyond the technology. How brands ask questions, spark creativity, and reward fans all plays into the ultimate success of a campaign. In this guide we will share our knowledge and best practices for getting the most out of a Facebook community, and out of our applications.PAGE 3
    • GUIDING PRINCIPLESOF FAN ENGAGEMENTSix rules we live by when creating powerful Facebook campaigns and communities. PAGE 4
    • KEY PRINCIPLES CREATE AN AUTHENTIC VOICE 1 Facebook is a social utility about sharing with friends. Promotions and a focus on selling are a turn off for your true fans. Be genuinely curious about your fans and their ideas to help build an authentic voice. Ask questions to your community and post Brainstorm and Photoboard prompts that get users to share their stories, experiences, passions, and ideas. Make your page a platform for your fans’ stories. THINK DIFFERENTLY2 If your questions sound like survey questions, people will avoid them. Thoughtful questions that spark conversation should be the goal. With survey questions you get direct responses, but often biases are built in and the right questions aren’t asked. On Facebook you have to be open to the diversity of responses - that is the true value. MAKE IT COLLABORATIVE3 Avoid the ‘empty room’ feeling. Respond to users who submit ideas and spotlight fans that do good work. By collaborating with fans, you will continue to draw them in and create a more engaging experience. Encourage discussion. Raw ideas are raw and through discussion you can help build ideas. Also, leveraging discussions will increase the virality of your campaigns. READ BETWEEN THE LINES4 If you launch a Brainstorm for creating a new kind of pizza, don’t expect users to submit the perfect recipe. See submissions in aggregate and look for similarities in ideas. These can be clues to unmet needs. Sharing ideas with fans is a powerful insights tool. Each idea represents a customer forming a solution to something. That something is an important insight into their needs. NEVER STOP LEARNING5 Crowdsourcing and consumer engagement are still young fields. It is critical to test, learn, and iterate quickly. Measure and observe everything. Campaigns will not be overnight successes. They require persistence and a process of optimization. HAVE CLEAR GOALS6 Have defined goals for what success means. Share your goals with your fans. If you make your goals public, the community can be aligned with your expectations, building trust.PAGE 5
    • THE BASICS, BY APPLICATIONEach of our apps is a bit different. Learn how to get the most out of each one. PAGE 6
    • THE BASICS BY APPLICATIONSuperfansWhen you install Superfans to your Facebook fan page, it maps and scores every INSTALL THE APP 1interaction your fans have had on your page like comments, ‘likes,’ votes on a poll Once you sign up for Napkin Labs you will get a dashboard with all of the appsyou ran etc. Once it has processed, faces will appear in the app. These are your available for installation. From the dashboard, install Superfans on your fanmost active and influential fans broken out into several different categories. For page and it will automatically direct you to see it on your page.example, All Time Best is the most active fans on your page, while Brand Favoritesare the fans that you, as a page admin, have interacted with the most. Your fansmust sign into the app from your Timeline to see where they rank, but each fan willget insight into how active they are relative to other fans on your page. LET IT PROCESS ALL YOUR DATA 2 Superfans scores every action your users have taken on your fan page from the time you started your page, so beware - it may take a few minutes or a few hours depending on the size of your community. Once it has processed all your info, it will be real-time. GET CREATIVE 3 Once Superfans is up and running, get creative. This is a club for your best users, so create an App tab and a call to action for users to sign up that fits with your brand. SEE WHO IS INFLUENTIAL & ACTIVE 4 Superfans gives you data on who is influential and active, so take a look, thank your top fans for being engaged, and see who your fan of the month is. SHARE THE APP WITH A LINK 5 Once you are comfortable with Superfans, you can share it on your Timeline page to start to driving traffic. The more you share the app, and the more fans who sign up to see where they rank, the more information you can start to see. OFFER PERKS AND REWARDS 6 For super savvy Facebookers we can work with you to set up rewards. Say you want to send out a coupon when any fan reaches a certain number of points - no problem. Just give us a shout and we can get you set up with custom rewards. PAGE 7
    • THE BASICS BY APPLICATIONPhotoboardPhotoboard is an application that lets you post questions or prompts to your INSTALL THE APP 1community and lets fans submit photos.

It is an easy way to capture user generated Facebook fan page.photos and images all in one simple interface. CREATE A CAMPAIGN 2 Once you install Photoboard you can fill in the details to start a campaign. Give it a title that asks fans to share images about something specific like “Share a photo of your last great adventure.” Provide more detailed information about why fans should participate, and set rewards and an end-date. CUSTOMIZE YOUR PHOTOBOARD 3 Photoboard also lets you upload a custom header image (778 x 200 pixels). Use this header image to ground fans in what the Photoboard is about. You can also customize app tabs on your Timeline page through Facebook. SHARE EARLY & OFTEN 4 Once you are ready you can share your Photoboard on your Timeline page. A small percentage of users actually visit fan pages, so sharing early and often will allow users to find your Photoboard through their Newsfeeds. SPOTLIGHT SUBMISSIONS 5 As users begin to submit images to your Photoboard, make sure to collaborate with them. Favorite images you like, and share great submissions on your Timeline page to drive new fans to engage. PROVIDE REWARDS 6 Early on as you are building your community, rewards can be a great way to incent participation. It can be cash, accolades, a trip, or better yet products. Brands that leverage their own products as rewards see the best participation. PAGE 8

You can also filter all ideas fans have submitted by these categories. Enter the categories of ideas that are relevant to your company like “store experience” “technology” or “improvements.” SHARE WITH YOUR FANS 4 Once your Pipeline is ready, share it on your Timeline to get users involved. You can also copy the link to your Pipeline and integrate it into your website or other web properties to drive more engagement and ideas. SPOTLIGHT SUBMISSIONS 5 Fans want to see that someone is listening. As fans submit ideas, favorite the ones you like, and make sure to comment on them to thank users and ask follow up questions.

Just click on the fan and message them through Facebook to get connected. PAGE 9
    • THE BASICS BY APPLICATIONBrainstormBrainstorm is one of our most powerful apps. Brainstorm lets you run specific INSTALL THE APP 1projects to capture ideas from your fans around a question.

Give it a title, for example: “What Facebook Apps Should We Build Next?” Also, input detailed information about why you are asking for ideas and what types of ideas you are looking for. CUSTOMIZE YOUR BRAINSTORM 3 Add a custom header image and Facebook Timeline app tabs to brand your Brainstorm. Make it fit your brand, but also get creative to come up with a brand of its own.

    • BEST PRACTICES BY OBJECTIVEGetting the most our of our apps, based on the things you want to accomplish most PAGE 11
    • BEST PRACTICES BY OBJECTIVEBuild Deeper Customer Relationships MAKE IT MEANINGFUL 1 Engaging with, learning from, and sharing ideas with your fans is a powerful way to build relationships. Your community on Facebook Most sweepstakes and contests are asking users to submit ideas or content has already signaled their interest by ‘liking’ your page, so creating with no real purpose but to participate. To build relationships involve experiences that make them feel even more part of the brand is critical. customers in things that matter and will make a difference. When you invite fans to work with a brand and help shape its future - they become invested. SPOTLIGHT PEOPLE 2 Leveraging Napkin Labs apps, you can create highly interactive experiences that get customers creative juices flowing. By working with One of the best ways to make people feel more connected to your brand is to give shout outs. Whether someone posted a great idea, a really cool image, or them over time you can build deep loyalty and create an army of brand caption, make sure to thank them and highlight their success. evangelists. PROVIDE THOUGHTFUL REWARDS 3 Anyone can give away money as a reward. The more you can tie rewards for actions to your brand the more loyalty you can build. So instead of a cash prize, think about an off-site with company leaders, or giving away product. IDENTIFY INFLUENCERS 4 Not everyone that interacts with your brand will be highly engaged. It is important to identify your influential fans and provide them with surprises and rewards. They can be your best evangelists to gain more influential fans. GIVE EXCLUSIVITY 5 One of the most rewarding aspects of co-creation for users is getting recognized. As you identify influencers, invite them to a Google hangout or send them an invite to a private forum. By giving your fans more access they will continue to feel more part of the brand. COMMUNICATE OFTEN 6 Following up is important. Once you have ended a Photoboard or Brainstorm, don’t let it disappear forever. Provide updates on your wall about the impact that is being made and what the company is doing with ideas. It is a great way to show users that their opinions matter.PAGE 12
    • BEST PRACTICES BY OBJECTIVEGenerate Awareness & Engagement MAKE IT FUN 1Napkin Labs apps are deeply integrated into the Facebook platform.

By continuallyposting new questions you can keep a close pulse on your customers’ evolvingneeds. CLUSTERFacebook is a much different universe than traditional marketing researchmediums like surveys and focus groups, however, so always remember the context.Facebook is a social site for sharing and building identity. Stay away from directquestions that feel like a survey, and focus on providing thought starters that 4 Consumers rarely give good answers to direct questions.
