Facebook Changes and the Power of Contests with Andrea Vahl [Podcast]

This week’s Pubcast was an absolute blast!

Andrea Vahl, AKA Grandma Mary, stopped by the virtual pub. I sat with a water while Andrea claimed to be sipping some Jim Beam.

We chatted about the following hot topics:

This week’s episode is sponsored by TabSite!

    Thanks so much for having me on your show Jon. Grandma was a bit miffed to be left out but she wants to interview you next :)

    Great podcast. Starting next week, I’m not doing any more promoted posts. Going straight to Power Editor to set up my ads.

    Nice pubcast Jon, good convo with Andrea definitely will be following up with Custom Audience analysis I think it will be of great benefit for sports teams.

    Fantastic Pubcast – a lot of valuable insights. It would be great if you also checked our Apps Mav Facebook application suite and give us your feedback based on your experience.

    A few of the apps are for Photo Contests and Sweepstakes and their objective is to help brands capitalise on the engagement that contests generate – as pointed out in the Pubcast!
