We’re excited to announce that local businesses can now use their Facebook accounts to log into BreakingPromos and reach new customers on local news sites while simultaneously reaching their followers on Facebook.
The goal of Publish2’s BreakingPromos is getting *every* local business to advertise online by making it as easy as posting to social media, the one form of online promotion that local businesses have figured out how to do on their own. So a business that is already posting to Facebook can now reach *new customers* through BreakingPromos, which they can’t do by posting to their existing followers.
The first release of BreakingPromos only supported Twitter. With the addition of Facebook, we’re making the BreakingPromos self-serve model easier for many more businesses in your market. What could be easier than logging in with an existing Facebook account and doing what you’re already doing on Facebook? And what could be more valuable to businesses than reaching *new customers* on your news site with the same Facebook promotions?
So businesses get more advertising value for the same effort, and local news sites can better monetize their greatest asset — audience, AKA new customers.
When a business with a Facebook page wants to advertise on your site, all they need to do in the BreakingPromos widget is:
1. Click Sign in with Facebook:
2. Select the business page they want to use:
And that’s it! They’re ready to post:
Creating a BreakingPromos account (1 step!) and purchasing BreakingPromos for your site (via Amazon with existing credit card info) could literally not be simpler. (Click here for an overview of BreakingPromos.)
Every post in the BreakingPromos widget is automatically sent to the business’ Facebook page. So there is no extra effort, at all, for the businesses using Facebook. Consumers can log into the BreakingPromos widget with their Facebook accounts and Like businesses’ posts and their profiles, so they get all the social media value.
With BreakingPromos, *every* business in your market with a Facebook account can advertise on your site by doing exactly what they already do on Facebook.
And that should be your goal — *every* business in your market should be reaching new customers on your site at the same time they are reaching existing customers on Facebook. It’s a no-brainer!
The value of BreakingPromos for everyone involved is clear and powerful:
- Businesses: Reach new customers with the same Facebook posts they are already doing
- Consumers: See Facebook posts from local businesses, by category, all in one place, without having to Like hundreds of businesses
- Local news site: Monetize online audience and co-opt Facebook’s value by creating a consumer destination for businesses’ Facebook promotions
