Sample Social Wi-Fi Facebook News-Feed Post

Social Wi-Fi provides a means for offline, local business to engage their own customers (at their own place of business) as they access wi-fi towards converting those customers (and their friends) into Facebook fans.

Local businesses seeking ways to engage customers with database marketing often turn to Facebook business page marketing as a means of staying in front of past and potential customers with ongoing news and promotional offers.

Besides the fact that practically the whole world is on Facebook, Facebook posts are designed to go viral as customers promote messages to their friends who may in turn do the same.

The problem these businesses often run into is identifying and deploying strategies for engaging their own customers as opposed to general internet users who may not be within geographical proximity.

Social Wi-Fi provides a means for offline, local business to engage their own customers (at their own place of business) as they access wi-fi towards converting those customers (and their friends) into Facebook fans.

In practice, the system works like this:

1) Customer logs into the participating business's wi-fi connection using their Facebook ID.

2) With each login (and with the customer's permission), a message (and link back to the business's Facebook business page) is posted to the customer's Facebook news feed.

3) Upon successfully logging in, the customer is redirected to the participating business's Facebook business page and prompted to "like" the business on Facebook in exchange for ongoing news and special offers.

For customers, the system adds value in the following ways:

1) Non-retail business with traditionally closed, password protected networks may be inclined to make their networks available to passer-byes in exchange for social buzz. This translates into more available networks.

2) The means of access to participating networks is a single, customer-known login credential (their Facebook ID). Customers don't need to ask staff for login credentials.

3) The login page is accessible to smartphone users needing quick access to web applications such as Facebook or email (perhaps while standing in line).
