Anytime you have that many people in a certain location, and you can pick the local people you want your message to reach based on their Likes, you can easily create and engage new customers for any type of business.

April 10, 2013 — Local Clicks To Bricks helps local businesses become more visible to consumers using Internet marketing strategies including social media.
A recent report by CNET indicates that only 300,000 Pages on Facebook have used their promoted post feature.
According to the article, Facebook recently reached 13 million local Pages. That means just 2% of local Pages are using Facebook’s promoted posts.
DC Fawcett, CEO and founder of Local Clicks to Bricks commented, “Most business owners aren’t utilizing the full capabilities of Facebook Pages because the don’t know how to mix social activities with business. It’s kind of foreign to them. So obviously they’re not going to be paying Facebook to promote their business page posts.”
Fast Company published an article stating that the biggest mistake local businesses make is not getting their customers to post something on their own page on the businesses behalf.
DC Fawcett agrees but says most business owners won’t ask their customers to do this.
DC Fawcett remarked, “Asking a customer to post something positive about your company to their own Facebook page is like asking for a testimonial, and most business owners feel funny about doing this. At the very least, they’d have to know that customer like a friend. I think the better way is what we’re doing at Local Clicks to Bricks. We use demographic targeting technology to find the local consumers who are most likely to spend money at a particular business.”
Facebook reported that over 150 million people visit Facebook pages daily, and that over half them use mobile devices when accessing the site.
DC Fawcett added, “Anytime you have that many people in a certain location, and you can pick the local people you want your message to reach based on their Likes, you can easily create and engage new customers for any type of business. It’s just a matter of doing it the right way. Business owners often use older forms of advertising messages with the Facebook platform, and this is a big mistake. It’s social platform so you have to keep your business message social as well, and most companies don’t know how to do this, so we do it for them.”
