The Visible Banking Page on Facebook: New Fans (151-160) + Contribute to the “People First!” Survey + Social Media News

The Visible Banking Page on Facebook
VB-Homepage-7Mar09I am delighted to announce that The VB pagecounts 253 fans to date. The page has now enough fans to create some solid conversation. Thank you all for spreading the word.

I believe the success of any Social Media initiative is linked with your ability to engage with your community and urge them to contribute.

It is critical to REWARD your members, your fans. Rewarding could mean many things such as producing exclusive content, or giving visibiliy / exposure to your contributors. I intend to do both on the Visible Banking Page.

I invite you to check my recent post, “People First! Contribute to the first ever global survey fully focused on social networking in banking

My goal is to better understand your behaviour and your expectations from a social network provided by a financial institution.
Thanks for spending just a couple of minutes of your precious time to fill the questionnaire, and for spreading the word around you.
