How Fan Clubs are getting more "People Talking About This" Facebook Page

When it comes to Facebook marketing, getting "Likes" has become a numbers game and you could easily get LIKES in a heartbeat via Facebook Advertising.

The real challenge after the "Likes" is to engage these "Likes" on the Facebook Page. 

One way to engage Fans is to  "Post at least 1 to 2 times per week" so that the brand stays top-of-mind and relevant to the people who liked your Page". 

Facebook uses the metric "People Talking About This" to show the number of engaged Fans. 

Wrote Mashable about the importance of "People Talking About This", 

People Talking About This is an important metric because it emphasizes interactions beyond an initial Facebook Like. Pages that create posts that fans enjoy will benefit. When people interact with pages in ways that generate stories, pages reach an audience beyond their existing fan base. Users benefit, too, from pages providing more relevant content. Pages that have been focused on gaining Likes without an engagement strategy to follow it will suffer from the disparity between the number of Likes and People Talking About This.

The engagement strategy is a challenge for all Facebook marketeers. 

Take Sakae Sushi Facebook Page as an example. While the Page has been updated on a regular basis, their engagement model is extremely low. 

From their Facebook Page, Sakae Sushi engagement rate only works out to 0.3% of Total Likes.

On the other, Ajisen recently launched its Ajisen Fan Club at all its 17 outlets and engagement has shot up to 23%. 

The high engagement rate for Ajisen was most likely due to its recently launch Fan Club.

Customers are now enticed to join the Ajisen Fan Club with the promotions. Wrote Mashable, "Discounts and specials are definitely among the most popular ways of rewarding Facebook fans, says Ron Schott, senior strategist at the Spring Creek Group."

Customers join the Ajisen Fan Club by registering their mobile number on the given website and press the LIKE button at the same website. 

After registering, to get the discount, the registered customers needs to give their mobile number to the cashier to verify them as a fan. 

Beside the verification process, a wall post, with permission from the user, is generated on the news feed which friends can see. To extend the reach, this wall post is converted into sponsored stories. Sponsored stories are sponsored by the payment brands so merchants get them for free. 

Example of a wall post converted into sponsored stories
One of the advantages of sponsored stories as it influences friends of fans.

As the wall post is linked to a status update on Ajisen Facebook Page, friends can click onto the wall post/sponsored stories to to learn more about the brand.

Facebook estimates that each wall post and sponsored stories can reach out to 130 friends of fans. As the number of wall posts and sponsored stories increase, thousands of friends of fans can be influenced to find out more about the Ajisen brand on Facebook.

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…

Did She Run Or Did She "Just Fake It" For Adidas?

Andrea Chong, a Adidas appointed influencer, posted a photo of herself in the middle of the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2015 and captioned how she was "all smiles" during the run.

Unfortunately for Andrea or the PR agency, one of her readers checked her bib number #75148  at the Marathon's website only to find it to belonging to somebody else.

That somebody else is Kuvin Kuar, a intern at Edelman PR and the bib number had a status "DNF" or did not finished.

This raised the first red flag as one of the rules stated that "A Participants is strictly not allowed to transfer his or her race entry to another party".

This cascaded into perceptions that Andrea herself did not even start or complete the race and was only "planted" by Adidas or the PR agency, Edelman PR, to look pretty in the marathon.

Marketing Magazine noted that Adidas declined to comment about the incident which lead to further speculation that Andrea was possibly just …

Kudos To Huawei 2 Year Warranty For P9 Series

When it comes to smartphones, I think I am jinxed.

For my history of owning smartphones, every time it comes close to the end of the two year contract with my mobile service provider. This time round, it happened to my Huawei P9.

All of a sudden, the LCD screen sort of decolourised. I thought it was a temporary issue but the decolourisation lasted for a few hours. Then the nightmare began.

The touchscreen couldn't be touched. This made it the smartphone a brick.

I thought the Huawei P9 only had one year of warrant. With my contract ending in mid-year, I thought I would have to wait it out till the contract ended and allowed me to buy a new phone under a contract.

Luckily, a friend reminded me that the phone came with a 2 year warranty.

So I decided to go to the Huawei service center, right smack in the center of the city, to see if my phone is under warranty and if Huawei would honour their 2 year warranty.

Thankfully, Huawei isn't as popular as the Samsungs or Apples, and the …
