MetroDeal buys Bigalaang Lakad Fan Page?

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

    Uhm I’ve been buying vouchers from them since January and they always had that fanpage. Is this what you call “news”? This is like 6 months old.

    What will Yugatech report next as “news”? Announcement of iPad 2? Lol.

    buying a page within a (web)page?

    sabagay mukang di naman agad malalaos ang fb, so profitable deal parin.

    Wala talagang kupas ang marketing sa facebook, pumapatok lalo na kapag may promotion.

    was approached before by a really popular guy in the phil blogosphere that he wanted to buy my 500k fan page also, there was really a serious money on the table especially if your fan page is a niche. but i din’t go for the deal because i have a few web projects that needs it (fan page)

    • hd says:

      so magkano naman offer sa fanpage mo? ano bang niche yan? baka pwed sa cpalead yan, tiba tiba ka diyan

    • Rodel says:

      it’s local travel niche, i tried slapping it with cpalead it won’t work hence, i settled with adsense, linkshare, nuffnang and infolinks for the time being.

    ang dami talagang pera online hehe.

  15. I had fan pages before that i sold, even more than 500k mark. If you have a viral page then sell it asap. On US fan pages are valued at $0.01 per fan imagine if you have more than 500k fans, their are times that fan pages which are funnier are more marketable than the serious ones

  16. Junior says:

    So what exactly is new about this? As far as I know they are around for more than half a year already and this fanpage has been with them ever since. What exactly is new about this?

    Yugatech, now I really remember why you’ll never reach the genius of a Techcrunch.

    • OOH ads says:

      New thing? Let me put it this way

      Money value – How much was invested on this page? Page was on fb server. Are you now getting the point Junior? Some lucky pinoy made a funny page and for some marketing reasons his page was bought with only spending time on his side.

      with regards to Yugatech not being a tech crunch someday, look further bro he’s the no.1 tech blog in Asia. Besides, TC has a lot of writers and commentators on board.

    Nice strategy:) thumbs up

  18. Johnny says:

    Sorry, but when I go to their website, their Facebook fanpage bears their actual name. Is this some kind of scam news?

    • Josh says:


      This news is true, That’s I’m shocked when I saw the page with the name of their company “Metro deal”

      Last time i checked it about a month ago it’s still “Buti Pa Ang Biglaang Lakad Natutuloy; Ang Planado, Hindi!”

      Can somebody tell me how did they change the name of the page? changing the name of the page with more than 100 likes is not possible as per facebook.

  19. Stephen Reyes says:

    But wait. Check out their fanpage now. It’s back to 2k plus.

    I guess fb didn’t agree with the buying thing.
