JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Dion Marketing has announced the opening of Let's Get Social Cafe. This is not a typical gathering spot for a nice meal, cup of coffee or glass of wine. It is a Facebook page that provides examples to businesses and potential clients of their newly developed Facebook applications (apps).
Let's Get Social Cafe was created by Dion Marketing to promote active engagement through social media services and learn about the ways that the Jacksonville Beach marketing firm can promote their business through their Facebook Enhancement Packages.
"We still give our clients traditional advertising options, but Facebook marketing can be extremely effective and affordable," said Julie Dion, President and Founder of Dion Marketing. "For our Let's Get Social Cafe Facebook page, we wanted to create an inviting online area where businesses can learn about what we offer for Facebook by seeing examples of our services in a tutorial fashion. We will also use this page for posting about our clients who use our Facebook Enhancement Packages to further expand their reach and likes, as well as events and happenings."
Dion Marketing is using Facebook apps to enhance their clients' Facebook pages. The apps allow them to post fan-gated offers, Facebook-compliant sweepstakes which also capture email addresses for further cross-promotional opportunities, PDF document displays, multi-page photo albums and other marketing tools that help boost shares, likes and reach.
Dion began working with Putt-Putt Funhouse in Houston on their Facebook page starting in February of this year. Since then, they have had a 73% increase in likes and connections on the Facebook Page. In one day alone, they gained over 100 likes through a traditional marketing cross-promotion.
"Trends are constantly changing and it's a lot to keep up with." said Jim Saxe, Owner of Putt-Putt Funhouse. "I don't always have time to sit and connect with our customers on Facebook-- there's a lot to know. We now receive rave reviews for our Facebook page. There is no doubt that Dion Marketing has increased my revenue with their Facebook promotions."
More and more businesses are joining in on the social revolution. However, many have the ability to make a business page, but don't have the necessary resources to keep it thriving. "That's why we came up with a package that not only includes the application functionality, but also marketing strategy and graphic design," explains Dion. "Our package is turnkey and affordable for businesses, which is exactly what feedback we get from the business community. We are the only agency that we know of that offers this all-inclusive package."
The apps alone are not what makes Dion Marketing's package unique. They also provide marketing strategy, graphic design, ongoing posting of content. Just like any software program, there has to be someone to input and maintain the information and make it work.
Companies who sign up for the Facebook Enhancement Package get a customized, 6-month social media plan. Together with Dion Marketing, they create a calendar of Facebook promotions, offers and planned content using photos and graphics.
