This post is by digital music marketer Kyle Babson.

Sometimes a little creativity and a built-in platform feature can be more engaging and cost-effective than building a new tool from scratch.

What does this idea accomplish?:

  1. Increases level of connection: You’re no longer just one of Matisyahu’s “fans” you’re now also tagged in his photo. I think the simple action of tagging the photo creates a feeling of investment in the artist that the fan might not have had before.
  2. Increases level of spreadability: Photo tagging action spreads to friends of friends

This is a promotional idea that doesn’t seem like one to fans. Add an e-commerce element by offering the photo for sale and you’re golden.

What is your simple, yet effective Facebook marketing tactic?
