What is Social Marketing?
What is Social Marketing?
Your customers do the selling for you
Your customers are your biggest fans and know your products
They will help to spread the word across the web
They present an Average Joe’s opinion others trust
They already know which of their friends will like you
People want to talk about their experience
What was unique about the food, the people, the ambiance?
Is there a niche out there which comprises your biggest fans?
Social Marketing vs Traditional Web Marketing
Traditional Web Marketing includes things like, search engine marketing and banner ads
You either have to wait for someone to search for you or
You cannot target your key customer demographics
Visitors come to your web site and only get the “brochure”
Social Marketing is all about keeping up to date and on your customers’ minds – in an interactive way
Social marketing is user opinions, comments, and reviews
You interact with your customers in a 2-way conversation
Your customers help keep your content fresh and relevant
It’s Like Enhanced Word of Mouth
Traditionally it is the best way to advertise
Word of mouth is cost effective and easy to implement
People trust their friends and often share similar tastes
Helps retain current customers and keep them close
Social Marketing is like word of mouth 2.0
Easy for friends to send an e-mail or link with a website
Can blend your brochure message with individual experience
On the web everyone interacts, even with total strangers
HOW YOU CAN USE THE
POWER OF FACEBOOK
TO ATTRACT, ENGAGE,
AND RETAIN CUSTOMERS
for Businesses ®
Facebook – It’s Not Just For People
Any business can have its own page on Facebook
Facebook Pages are different that Personal Profiles
It is against Facebook’s TOS for non-people to have profiles
Pages are fine tuned for business information like operating hours, mappable location, contact information, and history
Pages are public and can be viewed even without an account
You can present extra information on customized tabs
On a Page you still get popular Facebook Features
Every page has its own wall & feed to interact with fans
You have access to common apps and page specific apps
Facebook – Hyper Targeted Advertising
Facebook allows you to hyper target your customers using specific demographic and location information
Target your visitors based on age, gender, location
You can target customers based on their interests
Facebook ads are seamless and unobtrusive
Facebook checks and approves all ads to ensure quality
Ads are displayed outside of content and are well accepted
Don’t wait for them to look for you!
You can advertise to them when YOU want – advertise time sensitive events and special offers at just the right time
Ads match the actual user – not the content of the page
Do you really know your customers?
With Facebook you can gain real insights
See detailed demographic information about your page fans
Analyze visitor, popularity, and interaction trends easily
Interact with customer posts and ask them questions
Drill down advertising results to see what is most effective
Be interactive and give them what they want – There is much more than simply presenting a brochure
You can provide your customers with tips and advice in order to establish yourself as a friend and expert, not just a business
Easily incorporate multimedia and new content like videos, critic’s reviews, news clippings, customer photos
The Power of the 2 nd Degree
Second degree relationships refer to an individual’s closest friends, those who they know directly
These are the people they trust most – making them excellent references & starting points for marketing
Facebook optimizes the Power of the 2 nd Degree
When customers “like” or interact with your page, their feeds are updated and their friends can see… free marketing!
You can target advertising to friends of current customer fans
When potential customers visit your page, they can see which of their friends are already fans of your page

This is the standard info page. The information here helps Facebook to index your page and let other people find you through Facebook’s search engine. You can include a lot of important information that people want to know on this tab like location, services, and payment methods.
This is an example of our Custom Menu System in FB Restaurant Suite. Prices, descriptions, and other info can be customized to fit your needs. The menu is interactive and changes as the mouse moves over different items. We can also change the design to fit your style or menu type. Each picture and title links to a larger image in the photo gallery where users mouths can water and share comments about how much they loved it or make a accompanying drink suggestion.
On the Specials Page you can easily list your daily specials or weekly events. You can also link to photo galleries or videos from previous events to help entice your potential customers You can also create “Fan’s Only” coupons: If a visitor has already become a “fan” he or she will see the coupon, but new visitors must first become a fan by clicking the “like” button. After they become a fan, you can better target them or interact with them even if they don’t come in the first time around because they will still be connected to your page!
Here is an example of an information page. In this case we are giving our visitors a profile of the head chef. Your restaurant provides more than just a meal, you provide a full experience. The more you tell customers about your, the more connected they feel. You can use information pages to tell your story or share just about anything. Remember to always be personal and to engage your customers. And don’t worry, we will help you and give you advice so you effectively reach your customers and fill those seats!
Here is an example of a standard contact form. A contact form is more professional that simply providing an email address and enables you to collect the specific information that you want.
