Key Takeaways:

  • Brand Advocates are a different breed; They are 50% more likely to influence purchase decisions than other customers, 2X more active content creators, and 75% more likely to share great product experiences.
  • Facebook Timeline features give brands more real estate to boost advocacy such as pinning Advocate-generated content, showcasing Advocate reviews, and highlighting Advocate identification.
  • Even though these new Timeline features are valuable, 88% of Facebook fans never return to a brand page after "liking" it. Also, due to EdgeRank, only 16% of your fanbase see branded posts in their newsfeeds.
  • Brands can work around EdgeRank by giving Advocates content to share on Facebook (such as educational content, videos, offers, etc) and encouraging Advocates to create content themselves and then posting it to Facebook (such as reviews, testimonials, etc.) Though EdgeRank still applies to Facebook users, your Advocates will be reaching people in their networks that most likely aren't fans of your brand on Facebook.
  • By leveraging their Advocates on Facebook, brands are increasing reach, building their brand armies, boosting click through rates.

With 845 million active users and 2.7 billion “likes” everyday, Facebook’s marketing potential has brands foaming at the mouth. However, due to the constant evolution of Facebook updates plus EdgeRank filtering your content, the road to Facebook marketing success is quite a bumpy one. Instead of focusing on simply racking up “likes,” let your Superfans (AKA Brand Advocates) drive your Facebook strategy. Brand Advocates are truly a different breed; beyond “liking” your brand, they’ll proactively recommend your products to their friends, share your content, and help you build your brand army.

Register for the webinar and we’ll teach you how to turn “likes” into leads and Superfans into social media marketing machines.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Identify your Brand Advocates amongst your fanbase
  • Leverage new Timeline features to boost advocacy
  • Energize Brand Advocates to improve EdgeRank
  • Generate leads and lower customer acquisition costs via your Superfans
  • Plus, real-world case studies on how top brands like Box, GMC, Parallels, and more are leveraging their Advocates on Facebook
