Facebook is rolling out a new feature called "Facebook Offers". It is still in beta now and a very limited number of Facebook Pages have access to it, but I think this is going to be BIG! Take a look at the video and just think of the potential for small, local businesses.
With Facebook Offers businesses will be able to:
Set up an offer, discount, or promotion
Specify when the expires
Control the number of people who can claim and redeem your Facebook Offer
Facebook users will be able to claim the offer and ave it either emailed to them or can use their mobile phones to redeem in the store

Like it or not, if you are not showing up “on the map” you are losing new business opportunities every day. With more than 500 million searches a day in the U.S. alone, it’s likely that someone is looking for your business as you read this. The question is simple: Are they finding you, or are they finding your competitors in a local search?
In 2012, more people will search for local businesses on smartphones than on computers. Smartphones use Google Places, Yelp and other “local search” websites to gather data for local searches, will your business show up at the top of the local listings?!
Try it, do a search from your smart phone for “sports bar litchfield park”, the first listing that comes up is Tailgaters, not because they spent thousand’s of dollars and their website design or hundreds of dollars every month on pay-per-click but instead they used the power of Google Places and positive reviews! Have you claimed your Google Places Listing and is your Google Places listing optimized?
Would You Like to:
Be on the first page of Google?
Gain the advantage of having more positive reviews of your business?
Have your business show up on iPhones, Smartphones, and GPS devices?
Work smarter while your competition works harder?
Are You Taking Advantage of:
Google and Facebook Places - Yelp and Foursquare - Text Marketing and Coupons - Mobile Coupons and Mobile-ready sites - Local Business Listings - Positive Reviews on sites like Yelp and Angie’s List -
The most successful businesses in 2012 will be utilizing these tools and applications. Don’t get stuck waiting for your phone to ring…Contact us today!
