Facebook is getting into small business marketing with a new effort, giving local businesses a way to get more "likes" on the social networking site. Mashable reported some California-based companies received window decals with specific instructions for users to "like" that establishment. The decals have a phone number and the phrasing to text to automatically like the business. Mashable continued:
Facebook is even gifting beta testers with $25 in ad credits to help drive home the utility of the service and propel businesses to participate in on-site advertising as well.
This first step toward serving local businesses is an extremely smart maneuver very much like Google's Place Pages offering. Also, the day that Facebook correlates your physical location in the real world with their local business Pages does not seem too far off.
