Gordmans Amazing Facebook Advertising Technique

Gordmans is a company that partnered up with BlitzLocal.com for advertising campaigns. One of the campaigns was to promote and event and another one for advertising a tab. These ads helped traffic more visitors. As most of you may already know about Sponsored stories, which has a sponsored like, targets friends of your fans, and a Sponsored post, shows messages to existing fans.

While most Facebook ads are lucky to get a 0.05 percent click rate, this campaign drove a .4 percent click rate on the first day, unfortunately it fell by 45 percent within 48 hours to .2 percent.
Generally, anything above one is very good. Sponsored likes also cut the cost per click by an amazing 70 percent and cost per fan by 83 percent overall. So, basically you are getting a 77 percent discount. In two days, this ad drove 515 clicks for $76 and gained 418 new fans. That works out to 18 cents per fan and a click-to-conversion rate of 81 percent.

Facebook Is Facing Firing Lawsuits

Firing of employees over things posted on social media platforms is the basis of dozens of lawsuits in the U.S. Many of these are included by the National Labor Relations Bureau.

This settlement seemed more favorable toward the terminated worker.

Chrome OS; Superior To Windows 7?

Intel Working On 22nm Atom Silvermont

According to CNET, Intel is designing a 22 nanometer Atom chip with its new 3D transistors. The chip is codenamed Silvermont and is touted to boost performance by 37% while reducing power consumption by 50% over current 32nm chips. While CNET was unable to get hard numbers to back up the new Atom chip, I can assure that it will be a vast upgrade to current chips. These new atom chips will most likely be the driving force in future tablets, netbooks, and possibly smaller notebooks (those smaller than 12 inches).
