From 35 likes to 135 likes in no time
I really like to watch the show Shark Tank. I like to see what kind of crazy ideas people out there have but mostly, I like to see the people who deserve the help they need to launch their dreams get that help.
Tonight that didn’t happen but something else did.
Tonight there was a guy on the show who creates natural, preservative free jerky. He had a good story and you could see a passion behind it. He didn’t get the deal from the sharks but based on his personality and his story, I wanted to take a look to see what kind of online presence he had.
I googled the name and found his site – http://www.unclezipsbeefjerky.com
The site is a typical site, though it was hard to get to because the show drove a lot of traffic. So, I found a link to his Facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/pages/UncleZipsBeefJerky/193052077397736.
When I first hit the page, I noticed that he had 35 likes. I browsed around and decided to go ahead and like the page. After reloading the page, I noticed he had about 60 likes. Intrigued, I refreshed the page a few times and the page had jumped up to 130+ likes in about 10 minutes.
Now, that isn’t a flood of thousands of likes and we won’t all get a good spot on a national tv show but that’s a pretty powerful case study of social media in motion. Most of the likes and comments on the page were words of encouragement and inquiries into how the people could order some jerky online.
Hopefully Uncle Zips Beef Jerky will get the social attention it needs to keep going.
Retweet this and head over to the page and like it.
Good Luck Uncle Zip.Tweet
