How to use Social Media to increase fan page interaction and possibly take your product viral?

Have you ever asked your fans to do something for you, say change their status update?

Well,this week the Goszip Mall fan page asked that each of their fan’s change their profile picture to a sassy pair of open toe shoes to celebrate that spring is quickly approaching. Then later in the week they sent out a “fan” update (e-mail) asking the fans to change their status updates to “I want you to come and ____ with me.” To see what response’s they would get. Now keep in mind, all of the Fashionista’s who are fans of Goszip Mall were aware that the blank space was to be filled with the word “shop” but it was great to see the responses on the pages of the Fashionista’s who are fans of Goszip Mall, when they shared the status updates with their friends.

These two social experiments were opportunities to increase the fan base and fan interaction of the Goszip Mall fan. The owners of the Goszip Mall fan page were able to gauge the initial success of these posting by looking to see how many of their fans changed their profile pictures for the day to a picture of sassy open toe shoes. Not to mention they were able to go to the facebook insight report and check the increase in unique page views and the increase in fans. They used the same tools to gauge the success of the status update challenge as well.

With each of those one day experiments the Goszip Mall fan page saw a 5% increase in fan page interaction. Not to mention on both days they added 10 new members to their page. I am sure that after their small success in engaging their fans last week the management team at Goszip Mall will run more of these types of marketing initiatives until the find the right one that takes them viral!

So what catchy things can you come up with this upcoming week that will get your “fans/friends/followers” interacting with you on the Social Web? Give it a try and come back & tell me all about it!

What is Onyx Mobile Marketing?

Onyx Mobile Marketing, is a business that helps build and maintain brand preference. What better way to make that happen than to offer businesses the hottest multi-channel communication technology (i.e. Mobile Text, IM, Email, Social networks, Blogs) to market their products and services to consumers both locally, globally and affordably. Merchants can provide incredible deals to consumers via online or mobile text."

“Onyx Mobile Marketing's approach – using text, browsers, and emails – gives participating businesses access to the broadest possible customer audience.” Says CEO Karen Rogers-Robinson.

Consumers are now warming up to this new digital medium and have even opted in to mobile customer programs. As businesses continue to partner with Onyx Mobile Marketing, their deals and discounts will reach a larger number of users via text messages though short code technology. Merchants can visit www.onyxmobilemarketing.com to get the latest info about Onyx Mobile Marketing.

Onyx Mobile Marketing prides itself on being different from other businesses in social media marketing because our consumer reach does not pertain to one particular type of cell phone user. Businesses who use free mobile applications in order to interact with shoppers do just that; limit their deals to certain users. The users who take advantage of these applications are primarily smart phone users—19 percent of cell phone users.

Our company allows businesses to interact with consumers and also give feedback about the services rendered.

Mobile Marketing has its benefits when it comes to following consumer trends and offering great deals. Onyx wants to help broaden a company’s target market by sending mobile coupons via text message, instead of through free mobile applications. By using a five to six digit “short code,” the company can send and receive text messages. These short codes can be advertised online or in store banners (TEXT DEALS to 467947 for 10% of your next purchase) and offered at any specific time of the day.

We are here to help build and maintain your company brand by using social networks and SMS messaging. We want your business to flourish and for sales to increase. Mobile Marketing is here and it is the future… so shoppers check your phones!
