When it comes to businesses, the most important thing that they need to have is a selection of online business tools. One of those should be the new ‘Facebook Deals’, which is part of the new iPhone and Android app. This could be the perfect marriage, where both make money from each other.
A number of businesses already have the system in place to show these deals on the social network, but others will have to think long and hard – if they want to succeed then they had better consider this new way of promotion fast.
For users who have updated to the new Facebook app, they will have to keep an eye out for stores with a yellow icon, those are the ones who are participating in ‘Facebook Deals’. Stores like McDonald’s and Starbuck’s already know how valuable this is, so have already signed up to ‘Deals.
There are only 20 businesses signed up at the moment, but we can be sure that more will sign up in the coming days and weeks in the build-up to Black Friday and the start of the holiday season.
What stores would you like to see using this new online tool?
