FingerMarketing - A New Company Using An Innovative Way To Help Small Businesses Engage Effectively in Social Media And Develop A Mobile Website For Them

Share Article

Small businesses that have no idea on how to engage in social media can now turn to FingerMarketing for help. Not only can FingerMarketing provide them with a Facebook fanpage and entry into other popular social media networks, they can also periodically post on the networks for their clients, allowing them to engage effectively with their customers. Their clients also get the benefit of a mobile optimized website.

Last month, FingerMarketing, a North Vancouver based social media and web development company launched its Bronze, Silver and Gold plans aimed at small businesses that do not have an effective social media presence.

“A lot of small businesses have a Facebook page or a Twitter account that are never used,” explained Alykhan Virani, FingerMarketing’s founder. He added, "These (Facebook or Twitter) tools were probably configured by some nephew or employee, and I am sure the owner doesn’t have the time or a clue what to do or does not have the patience to get involved.”

Alykhan got his idea after spending a number of months in his neighborhood, interviewing small business owners about how much they used social media. He was very disappointed at how small businesses were losing out on business due to their lack of social media involvement. He also discovered that 97% of the small business owners did not have or understand what a mobile website was and how advantageous it was to have one.

As a result he founded FingerMarketing, a company that combines social media and mobile websites in a unique and innovative way unlike anything currently offered in the market.

The company offers its clients a Bronze, Silver or Gold plan.

The BRONZE plan is the basic package. It includes a mobile website with 10 pages and a Facebook and Twitter icon that when pressed, takes the user to the business’ Facebook wall and Twitter feed. Clients get an ad free site, a .mobi domain, analytics, 24/7 support and a redirect script which automatically sends the user to the mobile website if browsing from a mobile phone, or to the PC website if browsing from a PC or laptop. The Bronze package is similar to what is currently being offered by a majority of the mobile website developers.

The SILVER plan contains all the features of the Bronze plan and adds an extra page on the mobile website in which to display a menu, price list or describe a service. The client also gets a Facebook fan page with i-frames. The Facebook page effectively becomes the business' website and marketing tool. Today, Facebook is the best place to reach shoppers as of those online shoppers who engage in social media, 80% use Facebook. The fan page is a very powerful tool that can be used by the business to effectively engage with its customers.

The GOLD plan includes all the features of the Bronze and Silver plan - the mobile website and Facebook fan page - and includes another innovative feature currently unavailable anywhere else. Because many small businesses owners are either too busy or unfamiliar with how to post or what to post on their social media platforms, in this plan, FingerMarketing posts a specified number of Facebook posts and Twitter tweets per month for them.

Silver and Gold plan subscribers can also opt for a Gowalla, Yelp, Foursquare and Google Places account, which is configured and subscribed for them by FingerMarketing. This level of location based social media integration offered clearly defines the difference between FingerMarketing and other social media and mobile website developing companies.
