Social Media Marketing & Advertising
Social media is big and getting bigger, providing marketers with unparalleled access to their customers. FohBoh offers marketers a unique combination of reach, relationships, context and relevance:
Foodservice vendors, manufacturers and technology providers are looking to maximize the effectiveness of this new medium and are developing social advertising that heightens relevance and engagement through the use of profile data within the ad units themselves, as well as the use of social graph data to target ads. Let FohBoh help you and your team publish, syndicate and tune your marketing message for the social web.
FohBoh Social Media Marketing Programs
The following outlines three social media marketing programs that offer significant value to extend your reach online, while being able to measure the effectiveness of such social media marketing campaign through FohBoh analytics.
How FohBoh creates value for your brand, product or service
using the social web.
"What happens on FohBoh doesn't stay on FohBoh"
The FohBoh social media marketing program starts with our domain expertise - we get the restaurant business. Add years of experience as social media practitioners, sprinkle 10 years of Internet community development experience and 40,000+ members and the result is a clear understanding of how best to promote your brand on the social web.
How to start? First, be a member of FohBoh by creating both a personal and business profile. Second, become an active community participant because members are drawn to subject matter experts. Third, invite your friends, business colleagues and associates to join FohBoh so you have connections and a growing digital footprint. Fourth, integrate into the FohBoh community by reaching out, not "spamming" other members that could be good connections for business. The more relevant connections you have the more social currency will be generated.
Once you become a Social Media Marketing advertiser, we work hard to promote and expose you to the social web beginning with FohBoh, the Restaurant Community as well as all of our digital media assets.
The goal is to increase your digital footprint and "social presence" as it relates to your brand, product or service, leading to more traffic to your door with qualified leads. Let us help you craft a social media strategy that will accelerate your brand message in this target rich environment.
Social media marketing goes way beyond display advertising. Social media communication and marketing is interactive and layered. While we include display ads and newsletter sponsorships and advertorials as part of the program, it is the integrated campaign that matters.
We have our favorites, but we all know the big five: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google + and Pinterest. They have effectively won the social networking war as the platforms of choice. But, context and relevance is key. Targeting your message to the right listener is a key to a successful social media marketing campaign.
Here is a recent fact posted by emarketer: An advertiser on Facebook gets a 0.01% CRT. 5% of clicks lead to sales. With 100 clicks, an advertiser would receive 5 sales. That means that facebook needs to show 1 million ads to get 100 clicks to get 5 sales. Sales could mean $1 million or $5.00. Return on investment is predicated on (1) Social media marketing strategy, (2) campaign development, (3) Campaign monitoring and (4) effective targeting to a the right B2B audience - "Fish with the right bait", as they say.
Program A - Monthly Program | $1,500 per month (6 month rotation for $9,000)

Program C – Monthly Program $5,000 per month (6 month rotation for $30,000)
