  • 2. Background
    Yesterday, 28th June, I was asked to suggest a location to meet someone from my network for an after-work drink
    I remembered that a new bar is due to open today that is half-way between his office and mine
    I was very surprised at the results of how I found the company to pass onto him

  • 5. Thoughts
    This one example could be an outlier but for me personally it was interesting for a couple of reasons:
    The initial fact that I thought to search on Facebook after Google failed
    The surprise I had when I got the result I was looking for
    What does it mean
    • I take it as another positive note for the “you need to be in it to win it” reason for companies to have a Facebook presence
    And not forgetting
    • I Liked The Craft Beer Co. in the Facebook search results and all that entails in terms of Commercial Conversations for Lead Generation
