Top 50 Facebook Pages – Dippin’ Dots is #27

on 2009, Blog, PortfolioDecember 4th

The first annual list of The Big Money Facebook 50 ranked the top fifty companies making the best use of Facebook, by Slate’s The Big and announced that our beloved Dippin’ Dots has made The Big Money Facebook 50 Facebook Page list at #27! 


As Senior Producer for matrixx I have been responsible for growing the community, administering the page and coming up with new interactive integrations since day one.  In addition to claiming the Top 50 Facebook Pages, Dippin’ Dots is currently also the #1 Restaurant on Facebook and I’m psyched!  Of course this never would have been possible without the multi-talented Erin Brown and the very creative designs of Al Morales who are equally as responsible for the success of Dippin’ Dots on Facebook. (Thanks you two – we make a great team!)


According to the Big Money, Companies had to have a minimum of 200,000 Facebook friends or fans before being considered for The Big Money Facebook 50. Qualifying brands were then assessed on whether they employ a dedicated social media staff, how long the brand has been present on Facebook, and how much money it spends on the social networking site. Companies were then ranked from one to five on how often they update their Facebook offerings; the variety of material they offer; how much user interest their pages have generated; how integrated Facebook is into the company’s broader marketing; how easy it is to find the company’s Facebook page through a search engine, and creativity and effectiveness.


“While lists measuring corporate value based on dollars and cents are common, at The Big Money we see real value in recognizing companies that are performing well in the nebulous but all-important realm of social media,” said James Ledbetter, editor of The Big Money. “These are the companies that are really moving the needle in terms of customer engagement and loyalty, a critical aspect of a brand’s success and staying power in this challenging economy.”


Taken from an article on Wired Magazine’s Big Companies Dominate Facebook, “The companies with the best Facebook presences according to the study are massive brands whose profiles combine their own content with user uploads, rather than relying solely on one or the other. In addition, somewhat quirky brands that already had cult followings — Chick-fil-A, Dippin’ Dots, Pop Tarts and Dr. Pepper — did particularly well.”
