“The big question is: How do we manage this at scale across multiple locations? -EmmaM, Social Media Marketing Manager SocialSurvey

SocialSurvey Helps Your Brand Show Up Higher on Facebook’s Local Search

SocialSurvey’s dual workflow will help you gain more Facebook Recommendations effortlessly.

If you have already mastered the art of driving review traffic to your Google My Business (GMB) locations, talk to your Customer Success Manager (CSM) to discuss turning on the dual workflow. To clarify, we’ll give your customers the choice to leave you a GMB review OR a Facebook Recommendation and we’ll make it easy for them to do so.

As we discussed last week, having lots of Facebook Recommendations will help your multi-location brand show up in Facebook’s local search 3-pack. In short, it’s important and we’ll help you get it done!

Local Facebook Groups

Brands are eager to engage with their community in more personal ways. Engaging with small businesses in a more intimate environment like a Facebook Local group can be very meaningful.

For example, if you manage a business page on Facebook, you can create your own group within your community to drive engagement.

In addition, over the next few weeks, you can ALSO participate in already established groups as your business page. Take advantage of this awesome opportunity!

If you have questions about any of the updates from the Developer’s Conference, feel free to reach out directly.
