[Feature] How a 2 Minute Experiment Added 729 Facebook Fans in 7 Days

How a 2 Minute Experiment Added 729 Facebook Fans in 7 Days

Last week I mentioned that we wanted to promote your BigCommerce store to 70,000+ people on our blog. Today I’ll do just that for 3 randomly selected clients, but first I want to share some numbers around this little experiment we’ve been conducting over the last 7 days.

One thing that’s hard to pinpoint is exactly how much value a Facebook fan brings to a business, and whether the virality of Facebook works as well for B2B as it does for B2C. Facebook has their Insights tool for administrators of fan pages, but the stats it provides are basic.

You can mesh these with Google Analyitcs to track bounce and conversion rates, but even then you really don’t know exactly a) how the person became a fan on Facebook and b) what specifically lead them from Facebook to your website.

At the moment social media marketing (Facebook and Twitter) is like Google AdWords (and Overture, etc) when it first came out. It’s still fairly new and a bit hard to figure out but you know it works and you know it has to be part of your marketing mix. Our little experiment attracted 729 new Facebook followers to our fan page in 7 days, bringing our total to just over 3,200 fans.

You can see the results in the chart below:

You can also see that visits to our actual Facebook page surged too:

I think the our little experiment worked quite well. 729 new fans in 7 days is nothing to sneeze at. Here are the 3 BigCommerce stores that were randomly selected out of those who participated in spreading the word. A big thank you to everyone who made this experiment a success!

Review: Accent Studios - Vinyl Wall Designs

When my son was born back in 2007, we did some limited decorating of his room, mostly putting up some Classic Pooh pictures and wall decals and other similar baby decorations. The decorations stayed the same when our daughter was born and moved in to share his space. But now, honestly, my kids are kids, not babies, so it was time to update the space.

So I was happy to receive an email from the nice people at Accent Studios asking if I'd be interested in a review. Daniel and I decided that Vivian's side of the room really needed the most help, so we browsed their site for decals that would be appropriate for a young girl's room.

Even though we were shopping for Vivian, we were VERY tempted by this fabulous train decal- how cool is that?

We also considered this quote- perfect for a little girl's room!

In the end we decided that we wanted flowers and settled on this set:

The great thing about wall decals from Accent Studios is that everything is customizable. We were able to choose one of three sizes and also choose the colors that we wanted for the flowers and stems. I really liked the preview option- I was able to play around with colors and get the exact choices that I wanted.

Our decals arrived quickly and we spent a short time installing them in Vivian's room. The decals came helpfully numbered, so there was no guessing about which flowers went where. We're very pleased with the finished product- it really brightens up her side of the room and makes it look so pretty.

It's like a garden in her room!
Accent Studios has tons of other decals in addition to the ones I mentioned here- branches and vines, other flowers, headboards, quotes and expressions, music, shapes, cities, Oriental, sport, holidays, urban, and more! And if you don't see what you're dreaming of, talk to them about custom decals!

I love wall decals, they're such an easy and fun way to decorate a room. Simple to put up, simple to change when you want a new look. If redecorating is in your holiday or New Year plans, definitely take a look at all of the great options at Accent Studios!

Disclosure: I received wall decals to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.

You've Got To See My New "Portable" Wall Art From Accent Studios...Plus, You Can Win This Giveaway And Make Your Own!

I am a vinyl wall art addict! I love them! I can't get enough of them! They can take a bare wall and turn it into a masterpiece. But, they are hard to remove & take with you when you move. I have learned this from experience too...having lost several to the battle, when we thought we were moving!
So, what's a vinyl wall art addict suppose to do?

I was so pleased when I was contacted by Accent Studios to do a review of one of their Vinyl Wall Design Masterpieces. Of course I said yes and started browsing their website to see which one I would choose, dream about where I would apply it, etc.
So, I found the perfect one...a Custom Monogrammed Name Decal that would be ideal for a project I had in mind...
It arrived yesterday (sent to me free of charge for this review/feature) and I couldn't wait to get started on the vision I saw in my mind!
We have a mirror that I have used in our bedroom since we've been married! It's traveled from house to house with us and matched every decor change I've been inspired to make. I mean, you can't really go wrong with a gold mirror, right? So, I thought to myself...what if I applied our new Vinyl Wall Art to this mirror (instead of the wall in our bedroom)...would it look nice? Would it work? Would it then make my wall decal portable and something we can take with us on each and every home move?
You better believe it worked!
Not only was it easy to do...rubbing each in place and peeling the paper off...but the finished piece is AMAZING!! I LOVE IT! It's going to look great in each and every bedroom we live in...and it's a timeless piece that will work with just about any decor. HOW COOL IS THAT?

I get the pleasure of offering (2) of my readers, their chance to win gift certificates to Accent Studios. One will win a $25 gift certificate and the other will win a $10 gift certificate! Both will be picked via
