As part of our expanding coverage of Facebook marketing this will be the first in a regular series of posts examining Facebook Page campaigns. This week we take a look at seven different campaigns selling things as diverse as jewelry, football fandom, phones, airline tickets and candy that use a variety of methods to attempt to attract new Likes to their Pages.
Southwest Airlines and Make-A-Wish Foundation
Goal: Exposure to the networks of users
Core Mechanic: Places Check-Ins for Charity through Facebook Deals
Method: Southwest Airlines donates $1 to Make-A-Wish Foundation for each check-in to an airport served by Southwest. These check-ins are published to the stream, exposing Southwest and Make-A-Wish to a user’s network, increasing awareness, and generating good will towards Southwest for it’s donations.
Goal: Exposure to the networks of users; Page growth
Core Mechanic: The creation of an avatar that publishes to a photo album and the stream and the promise of prizes
Method: Sony Ericsson’s Mini Magic campaign allows users to create miniature avatars of themselves — down to the type of jewelry they wear — publishes these to the stream and creates a photo album for these images and allows users to enter a contest to win company prizes.
