Facebook is bad for business – when your business doesn’t allow interactivity. Let me introduce you to a recent negative experience and let’s see what could have happend.
Meet the As Seen on TV Eggie. You know what I’m talking about. They appear on TV around
11pm right when your munchies are kicking in and you’re really thinking about eating something fairly healthy before bed. BUT WAIT, there’s more – they will double your order if you buy right now! So, my loving wife – did. My wife is pretty awesome – did your wife buy you a set of eggies? Didn’t think so.
Anyhow, we were really pumped when our Eggies arrived. So much so that we started taking pictures of the Eggie process and posting them on Facebook. We even Liked Eggies on Facebook and had every intention of tagging them on our Facebook Page so our Friend’s could go and Like Eggies too. BUT WAIT, there’s more – Eggies wouldn’t let us tag them…or write on their wall. Apparently they can’t manage the comments they might get so instead of all 600+ of my Facebook friends being able to check out Eggies page, they only got to see my page.
Facebook is bad for business when a business doesn’t believe enough in it’s product and won’t allow their customer’s to brag about how great the product is.
The question you are all wondering – are Eggies as cool As Seen on TV? YEP! They sure are! I will include a few more picture of them and would love to include a link to their Facebook page but I am not going to…I don’t think Eggie really cares about me, or you.
Facebook is bad for business when a company launches a page and sets their permissions to make the page totally unreachable by it’s clients. Eggies, I am so disappointed in you. I wonder if you have a key word alert so that at least you can thank me for endorsing your product? We shall soon see.
In closing I encourage every business owner out there to make your page and your company accessible to folks like me, who love to brag about great products. I take pictures of my food, free stuff from Klout (that’s a future blog), and even the random soda can or dog in the park. Us humans love to share with our friends, that’s why Social Media is…social. Please, come be social with us. If you would like to see more of the photo’s you’re welcome to friend me on Facebook. My Facebook
