Facebook Deals Gives New Jersey Businesses Another Reason To Focus On Online Advertising

Posted by:

Today Facebook introduced a new addition to it’s Places feature: Deals. For those not familiar with Places, Facebook now lets you check-in to local businesses just like Foursquare. You can then choose to share this information with your friends and they share with you. While Facebook’s Places doesn’t offer the gamesmanship of Foursquare where you can become the “mayor” of a location if you’ve checked-in there the most, it allows businesses to place coupons in their listing.¬†Unfortunately, the only way to currently use these coupons is by showing your phone to the cashier. While there is still some need for advanced development of these features, Facebook has successfully taken a step forward in challenging the geo-targeting market and giving local businesses another reason to pay attention to online marketing.

Merchants have complete control over the coupon creation and should be compelled to take advantage of this offering. More and more people use mobile phone applications to not only find places to go, but more importantly, to share them with their friends. Facebook Deals is a great way for your business to use traditional word of mouth advertising on a new platform.

The best way to form a solid campaign online is to form relationships with your customers. Facebook Places, Deals and Foursquare are all additional ways for you to do so instantaneously.
