Bowen Family Homes E-Incentive for Realtors a Success

Facebook page reaches 200 new Realtor fans in five days.

Atlanta, GA, August 06, 2009 --( Bowen Family Homes’ most recent social media program, that included presenting new Realtor fans on Facebook with a $10 Starbucks gift card, was well received as was evident by the more than 200 Realtors that signed up as fans of the Bowen Family Homes’ corporate Facebook page in less than five days.

“We are excited that we were able to connect with so many Realtors on Facebook so quickly,” said Kelly Fink, marketing director at Bowen Family Homes. “We hope that Facebook will be a great way for us to keep Realtors updated about our current events and available homes.”

To receive a $10 Starbucks gift card, realtors had to log into their Facebook account and become a “fan” of the Bowen Family Homes’ corporate page. Once they became a “fan” realtors were asked to post one thing they love about Bowen Family Homes. After signing up and posting their message, a representative from Bowen Family Homes contacted them directly to mail them their gift card.

Comments left on the Bowen Family Homes’ corporate Facebook page included:
“I am a realtor and I love selling Bowen Homes. It has always been a pleasure.”
“Bowen Family Homes is still here when so many builders have gone away because they are innovative, trustworthy and have good taste! Starbucks cards are a great idea for getting some attention! May I steal your idea?”
“I have enjoyed showing Bowen Family Homes! And now a Starbucks Gift Card. I added you as a Fan to my Facebook (page) several days (ago). I will toast you when I am drinking my coffee.”
