Case study: Indonesian Panggang sees increase in new fans liking their Page from 8 to 20 new likes a day

One of the biggest challenge for brands or agencies today is to get fans to join their Facebook Pages. For Indonesian Panggang outlet at NUS, a activation day started a viral effect among their fans’ friends that saw an increased in new likes a day of 8 to 20.

Indonesian Panggang Case Study

Prior to Oct 27 2010, Indonesian Panggang was only looking at an average of 8 new fans a day. Most of these new fans would join the Page when there was content updated onto the wall. Days without any content would see very little activity on their page.

The activation drive on Oct 27 2010 and we had close to 34+ new fans joining the Indonesian Panggang Facebook Pge and tapping at the cashier to get the 10% off which the stall was offering fans.

Unlike most activation campaigns which focused on new LIKES, the registration was done away from the cashier and thus the cashier require fans to tap to be recognised as a fan.

But on that day itself, there were more than 34+ fans joining Indonesian Panggang Facebook Page. A total of 88 new fans joined on Oct 27 while another 81 joined the next day.

It trickled down as the days went by, but now Indonesian Panggang now sees an average increase of 20 new fans per day with minimum postings.

What caused this increased in new fans joining the Page?


Whenever a fan taps to be identified as a fan at the cashier, it will activate a status update to show that the Facebook user has been recognized as a fan and the fan shares with his/her friends about the promotion at Indonesian Panggang.

On average, each Facebook users would have about 100 friends so each tap will result in an impression of 100. Also, each tap could spur conversation between friends about the venue.

My recent post on brands not rewarding show two comments on LinkedIN.

Wrote Joy Tang,

I also dislike Facebook pages which only offer a one-time discount as a reward for joining their Facebook page. While you do get a one-time discount, that's it. What else is there to keep me as a fan?

A digital account manager wrote,

I see so many pointless Facebook campaigns that hoard fans and then just forget about them. I think there is a tension in social media marketing at the moment between demands from consumers and clients: consumers at best want interaction with a brand (and at worst instant gratification in the form of prizes and rewards), whereas clients/brands want instant gratification in terms of large numbers of fans relative to opponents. To be honest, from what I have seen in Singapore, the client side's focus on numbers of fans always seems to win as the major KPI of campaigns - and likewise they fail to understand the importance of relationships with existing fans.

Giving brands the capability to recognise and reward fans provides them with the solution to the problems above.

Taggo allows brands to award long following fans or new likes. The instant gratification which the fan/consumer look for can be done by rewarding the fan/consumer on the spot.

Brands who are looking for numbers now have an addition medium – the fan’s Facebook wall – to get more fans for their Facebook Page. This, therefore, increases the number of customers to the venue.

Why is Ramly Burger banned in Singapore?

Yahoo Singapore ran an article of the Ramly Burger by highlighting that it is ban in Singapore.

Yet, the writer from Makansutra failed to address the most important issue of why the Ramly meat patty is banned in Singapore.

A search online easily did highlight that the famous Malaysian meat patty is banned by the AVA but didn't go into details.

Wrote Arlina Arshad for The Straits Times in January 2004,

"But the importing of beef and beef products from Malaysia is not permitted, said theAgri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA).

Selling and supplying them without a permit is also an offence, and offenders can befined as much as $50,000 or jailed two years, or both, said the AVA."

In May of the same year, another article highlighted that a man was even charged in court for "smuggling" the Ramly burger in 2004.

"The AVA said that meat products processed in Malaysian food factories which it had notapproved were banned here.Suzali was yesterday jailed for four month…

Those Who Gamble Online Have Poorest Control - NCG Survey In 2012

Singapore will soon exempt local operators, Singapore Pools and Turf Club, from online gambling ban and the sites will be ready in November 2016.

Ministry of Home Affairs explained that a complete ban on remote gambling drives demand and activities underground, and may create larger incentives for criminal syndicates to target Singapore."

Yet in a 2012 survey by the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCG) found that those who gamble online have the poorest control.

For those who indulged in online gambling, 30.4% said they gambled for a longer period than they planned to, 33.3% gambled with more money than they planned and 29.2% gambled more frequently they planned to. 
Will launching the online gambling sites be like opening a Pandora Box that will create more issues in the future?

A Very Small Chicken Or An Oversized Popcorn Chicken?

Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Singapore Facebook Page recently received a complaint of the size of the chicken being served at KFC.

Barnabas Ng took a photo of his chicken from KFC which showed it to be almost the size of the KFC small container. It also looked like a an oversize popcorn chicken.

Wrote Barnabas,

"Hi KFC, is this your new standard size for a chicken? I order 3 piece meal and 2 pieces including this so called original recipe chicken is smaller than the size of the cap of ur small mash potato.

Have you guys try to cut cost so much that you are offering half a size chicken pieces for a full price meal? It is just getting from bad to worse"

KFC Singapore did reply to Barnabas for him to PM his mobile number but Barnabas has yet to receive any calls from KFC Singapore, as of this posting.

Maybe chickens are also shrinking with the current climate change?
