New group-buying site, Metro Deal, buys popular Facebook Fan Page of “Buti Pa Ang Biglaang Lakad Natutuloy; Ang Planado, Hindi!” with over 500,000 fans. Ok we’re not really sure if there’s a sale but MetroDeal has already taken control of the FB Page since it launched.
The biggest challenge for new group-buying sites is attracting new email subscribers, Twitter followers and Facebook Fans. The usual approach is to do ad campaigns on FB, Google Adwords and other ad networks which is very expensive, just like what Ensogo did.
Buying an already popular FB Fan Page is definitely a cheaper and much faster alternative. For how much was the 500,000-strong Fan Page was bought is another question that remains to be answered.
Now that’s another way to make money online! :D
