Company Coca Cola Logo Coca-Cola
Facebook facebook.com/cocacola
Fast Take The Coca-Cola facebook fan page was originally created by a couple of Coca-Cola fans named Michael and Dusty (because Coke didn’t create one yet). The page took off like a firecracker, Coca-Cola contacted Michael and Dusty and they collaborate on running the page. A note worthy point about Coca-Cola’s facebook fan page is that it doesn’t sit still, they move from one interesting and engaging campaign to another.

Company IKEA Logo IKEA
Facebook IKEA Gordon’s Facebook Profile no longer exists. IKEA USA
Fast Take To promote the opening of a new IKEA store in Malmo, Sweden – a media agency created a facebook profile for the store manager Gordon Gustavsson. For two weeks he would upload pictures from the IKEA showroom on his profile. The first facebook users to tag themselves on showroom items would win those same items. Naturally the word spread quickly and proved to be a very affordable and successful viral facebook marketing campaign. (IKEA Gordon’s profile no longer exists)

      Hi thanks for feedback – I will definitely be looking to update the list of facebook case studies in the near future… Just been a bit busy with work, but once I update the page I’ll be sure to let you know :)

    As far as Facebook is concerned, the very day I try and use any sort of marketing other than their paid “adsense” stlye, they close me down. I’m not sure why they let people have a page for their business if the minute there is a link to it, or it gets more then 10,000 fans it’s removed. Sure FB for multi nationals, but for the rest of us, well it’s even less effective than Google adsense – and that’s saying something.
