I'm a professional online marketer and MIT-trained MBA. I coach entrepreneurs on online strategy and direct marketing tactics.
To clarify: This contest is for a *Facebook Fan Page* design graphic, NOT a Twitter design. (99designs has no FB Fan Page category, Twitter was the closest category)
The world’s 2nd most popular website(!), Facebook has evolved beyond profiles and now includes Fan Pages that showcase businesses. Coca-Cola, Starbucks, Adidas and other major brands have unique FB Fan Pages. Small business owners are realizing they too need a Fan Page.
**Demand for Fan Page designs will skyrocket in 2011** This is a hot niche to add to your portfolio! Money to be made here.
My Fan Page strategy is somewhat cutting edge. I will be driving targeted, paid and free traffic to this fan page, in order to generate leads that do precisely 2 things on my fan page:
(1.) Click the “Like” button (to follow my Fan Page)
(2.) Opt-in to my email list. Specifically, after the visitor clicks the “Like” button, the visitor will enter his/her name, email and (optionally) phone number into a web form that resides on the Fan Page
The design is intended to entice the visitor to do BOTH tasks: Click Like AND Opt-In.
I’ll handle all coding. You only need to apply your skill and creativity to the design!
My Fan Page targets people aged 25-55 who want to make money online from home and who fall into 1 of 3 categories:
1) People interested in sustainability-related topics (such as hybrid cars, green design, eco-travel, natural foods, outdoor recreation, alternative energy, etc.) OR
2) Serious entrepreneurs such as people who are researching or seeking a franchise opportunity OR
3) People seeking a home-based business opportunity/people who already have a home business such as network (multilevel) marketers and affiliate marketers
People in my target market are aspirational: They hunger to radically improve the quality of their lives and are actively looking for vehicle to do so.
