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…

Social Media 101: How To Be The Most Hated Person In Singapore Instantly

It is amazing how we are quick to forget that a single wrong comment on social media can make one the most hated person in Singapore.

Back in 2012, we had Amy Cheong. Her comments on Facebook about a Malay wedding under her HDB void deck resulted in an online CSI that cost her her job.

Fast forward to 2017 and we have Thomas Chua Poh Heng and whose name will forever live in Internet infamy.

Thomas reposted a video of the funeral of a Traffic Policeman who died while on duty. Thomas then commented that his death was well deserve as Thomas was once given a traffic ticket by the same Traffic Policeman.

Even the Home Minister for Singapore, who is responsible for the Police Force, was offended by Thomas' statement.

The screenshot showed that post was marked global by the Globe image next to the Singapore tag which could hint that this post was meant for all to see. As such, the argument of a "private"post does not hold any weight here.

Just as expected, after this post was s…

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?
