These are manufactured by Ben & Jerry's Homemade Holdings, Inc., headquartered in Burlington, Vermont, United States, with the main factory in Waterbury, Vermont. It is best known as a premium ice cream brand, founded in 1978 in Burlington, Vermont. Two competitors are strong with using social media to improve their image brand, especially by facebook fanpage. They are also successful brands in over the world in advertising through social media. ** Baskin-Robbins is an American global ice cream parlor based in Canton, Massachusetts. It was founded in 1945 by Burt Baskin and Irv Robbins in Glendale, California. The company is known for its "31 flavors" slogan, more than the 28 flavors then famously offered at Howard Johnson's restaurants, with the idea that a customer could have a different flavor every day of any month. The slogan came from the Carson-Roberts advertising agency (which later merged into Ogilvy & Mather) in 1953. Baskin and Robbins believed that people should be able to sample flavors until they found one they wanted to buy, hence their famous small pink spoons. The company has introduced more than 1,000 flavors since 1945.

  15. 15. IV. SWOT & Insights - STRONG: The brand has a long tradition, strong brand recognition, excellent image for brand providing good quality products and good position on international market. So, building great image on Facebook fanpage is not too difficult to do. - WEAK: It has a few of advertising campaigns to support for Facebook page. - OPPORTUNITY: It can refresh brand image on Facebook and use Facebook functions to brings new customers. - THREAT: Other ice cream brands have achieved success through the use of Facebook.

  17. 17. V. Recommendation for Häagen-Dazs Design Facebook Fanpage * Image to be carefully selected before personal posting. - Image needs to pay attention to color, bright. - Use of the images that represents the relationship between brands and consumers.(people eating ice cream, standing after ice cream store instead of o ly i e rea s photo) - Use graphics to design or create comic stories for entertaining.
  18. 18. V. Recommendation for Häagen-Dazs Making Quiz or Competition - It should post with interactive contents such as quiz, ice cream sudoku, predicting the most popular ice cream flavor of the month by binggo game instead of asking and answering itself. It is able to make a photo competition. Customers can take part in, vote for themelves or vote for others to take price, coupon. (Target can be children a d pare ts joi y taki g hild s photo.) - The promotional contents should take attention to location to notice customer to join. New products needs an appealing introduction.
