Web Feat has just joined Facebook. Why? According to a 2009 Harris Poll, nearly half of all Americans have a Facebook or MySpace account. 74% of adults between the ages of 18-34 are using these social networking tools. These are staggering numbers!
Here is a link to the poll: http://www.harrisinteractive.com/harris_poll/pubs/Harris_Poll_2009_04_16.pdf
Why not start a Facebook account and see how it can work as a super, online networking event? I'm not exactly sure how Web Feat will use Facebook (FB), but I do know the goals are twofold:
1) Help Existing Clients: I'm hoping this will somehow be a help to our existing client base. While I don't intend to use FB as forum for support issues, I do want to share helpful information, insights or advice about how our clients can get the most out of their websites and the services we are providing.
2) Generate leads: I'm interested in seeing how viral marketing can work. I don't consider myself a salesman by any means. With over 11 years experience in Internet business, I feel more like a consultant.
I am documenting FB progress in this blog so I can discuss what works, what doesn't and any other observations along the way. Other businesses wondering how FB can benefit them may find it of interest as well.
