***Update: I just realised I forgot to put the PDF documentation in the zip. I’ve now updated the zip to include it, but if you’re one of the people who’ve already purchased you can also download the PDF here or just go back to your download page and grab the new zip from there.
This Friday we’re going to have a little sale for a brand new plugin that will make your WordPress blog go crazy evil viral all over FaceBook.
Phew! That sounds exciting doesn’t it?
So what’s it all about and what’s up with the title?
I’ve done something I never thought I would.
I joined Facebook.
And the reason is because we’ve only gone and finally built a FaceBook plugin, haven’t we? I knew it was only a matter of time really, but I wanted any FB plugin we created to have some tie in to WordPress sites, and it had to have a marketing angle of course, something to do with driving FaceBook traffic to a blog.
And so eventually Like Plus (Like+) was born. No it doesn’t work with Google+ yet as we can’t get a Google+ account to configure and test it with, but as soon as we can and IF it’s possible, we’ll incorporate G+ into it as well.
(Update: I now have a G+ account thanks to Tim who *just* beat Ray to the punch. Thanks guys. I’ll try to put some time aside for it ASAP, I hae a couple of things I need to get finished first though.)
So I took one for the team and I joined FaceBook so I could use the plugin myself on my own sites.
What does it do?
Well, it’s a little like another one of my plugins called “Subscribers Only”. In fact the principles behind it are very similar.
How it works is you can hide some important piece of text or HTML on one of your blog posts or pages, and it won’t be revealed until AFTER your visitor clicks the FaceBook “Like” button.
So your visitor clicks the Like button on your post or page for a ZIP or PDF or whatever it is you’re offering, and ONLY then can they get at what they’re after.
In return, YOU get a new “Like” on their FaceBook wall, which is then included in ALL their friends FaceBook Newsfeeds…
I’m sure you can straight away see how viral this can make your blog? Hence the evil laugh. 😉
Their friends will see what they “Liked”, and some of them will click. Some of them will “Like” it too in order to get at your hidden goodie. And it will then appear on their wall and their friends newsfeeds… And so on.
You’d use it in conjunction with some killer offer you come up with to get people to Like it for you. Here’s the sequence of events:-
#1 – Once your visitor has liked it the content reveals itself – it could be a link to download a report they want.
#2 – In the background the Like then appears on their wall and in their newsfeed.
#3 – Their friends then get to see they’ve Liked something and may click the link to see what it is.
#4 – They read the offer and decide they want it too.
#5 – They Like it. Goto #1.
Viral or what? 😉
The way I see it is, it needs to be used judiciously. If you put it on every single post and page then it will almost immediately lose its effect. People won’t want to “Like” everything on your blog.
What you need to do is set up a killer offer on a page or post. Something really good. Something where visitors will go “Yeah! I want! I Like!”
I’ve tested it, had it tweaked and re-tested and then had it tweaked some more. I’m happy with it. So on Friday 12th at 6.00pm GMT we’ll have a little rising price sale.
Now I *could* be really evil and require you to “Like” the post or page first before you can get the link to the sales page, but for now I’m just toying with that idea.
I may even require you to “Like” the page to reveal the buy button. 😉
Yeah I might just do that. Or some variant on it.
Here’s another idea.
Maybe you get to see the regular buy button with the regular price, but if you “Like” the page for me, then you get to see the discounted buy button instead.
Ooh yeah! There’s LOTS of ways you could use this when you stop to think about it isn’t there?
And the upshot is, it makes your page VERY popular.
NOW can you see how powerfully viral this is?
Really POWERFUL marketing stuff…
Worth having? 😎
