We came up with this trick a few months back and used it with alot of success for our local business. I hope someone can use it!
This trick involves using the Facebook "image tag" function to get an image (which is an advertisement in disguise) to go viral.
Here's how it works:
Have you ever seen those images people pass around on Facebook that don't have any actual people in them....just like 10 images and phrases below the images that describe a trait?
In case you haven't seen something like this on facebook....this is what people do.... They download this image and then they upload it to facebook. They will then tag a friend to the section that "fits" that friend (based on traits).
When a friend is tagged in the image they get a notification. This kind of image usually gets alot of comments and everytime it does....people that are tagged get another notification....
With that in mind....here's what we did.
We built and posted the following image for my Chiropractic office to help out our new massage therapist.
The Text Says:
1) Right Click and saw this picture to your pc.
2) Upload it to your facebook profile
3) Photo Tag "Ben Adkins" (that's me) on the Adkins Chiro Logo
4) Tag yourself in the Center Character.
5) Tag 5 friends on the surrounding characters
We will pick a winner Next Monday!
If your friend (one of the five people you tagged) wins the free
massage, then you get one for 50% off. So help a friend out and get tagging
We posted it to my facebook page and people started downloading it, re-uploading it, and tagging away like crazy.
Everytime someone got tagged....they got a notification
Most of them would, in turn, download it, and retag the person that tagged them...and tag 4 others.
This put my office in front of a ton of people that had never heard of us...and it literally cost us nothing (except the free massage).
Hope this is something you all can use and adapt it for your own purposes on Facebook!
