  • Kara

    I nominate https://www.facebook.com/Sckoon

  • My nomination goes to http://facebook.com/leneys as they are using some amazing tactics to market their brand on a massive scale both locally and internationally. The one most important thing which i had observed in a time following “LENEYS” is that they have put a PERSONALITY behind their brand. Leney Jinlee appears herself wearing her own brand every single day, to let her followers know that she LOVE what she offers to others. And that really helps her audience to connect with the brand, because it has seen over a time that people react more when there is human connection.

    She talks and Answers question with all her gratitude to the audience/potential buyers on the posts, make them feel comfortable in any means to create ease in making a buying decision. Customer centric approach is amazing and she is using it on top of everything.

    Leneys have defined the Girl Fashion on very High Standards – Customer Service, Social interaction, Business Ethics and Most Importantly Great Dresses and Accessories!

  • Lize

    I nominate: http://www.facebook.com/chocolateforbreakfast?ref=stream Chocolate for Breakfast, because it’s one of the most interactive facebook pages I have encountered. There are always lovely pictures and interesting discussions about chocolate. I think it’s the one page on facebook where everyone can have fun. Plus, it’s informative. Chocolate aside, there are some good pointers relating to nutrition and health. It’s a great page, and I hope people will visit it! On the surface it’s a sweet page about desserts, but there’s definitely something deeper on this page. More than it being about indulgence, it’s about allowing and making room for pleasure in life. We can all benefit from a little kindness in our lives, and a little sampling of the Chocolate for Breakfast page does just that for many of us.

A fantastic bunch of people who have helped many Kiwis turn their part time passion into a full time reality by sharing the Kiwi Vibe!!

  • I am nominating http://www.facebook.com/aspireequineimages. I chose this business for my nomination because the photographer takes incredible photos, photos that deserve more recognition than they receive and I believe more advertising would help get the word out there. If people in the market for a photographer could stumble upon this site they would see that sometimes a small photography business can rival a larger more expensive business and not lose the quality of a big time business and get the added bonus of having a photographer that is not only likable and honest but genuinely looks to help each individual get the most for their money. So many large businesses in this venue strip you dry for a photograph, Aspire Images is very reasonably priced and the photos are unbelievable! 

  • Thafox61

  • https://www.facebook.com/brisbanekids
    There are a few pages that cover this market but they’re mostly uninspired.  This page gives information but also has really great entertainment value and is a really nice little community.The content is ALWAYS copied by a dozen other pages because she’s a bit of a cool hunter…  Thought this page, I’ve met dozens of like minded people (it’s a page for mothers in the Brisbane area) and I find myself always commenting on items.  I think that’s the mark of good social engagement so I think this page would be a good candidate.

  • I love Earth Mama Angel Baby’s page because they invest so much more time and effort in educating and supporting their fans (mostly new moms) than they do worrying about selling.  They’re clearly passionate about what they do.  They use a consistent voice for their brand, and yet they keep their fans hopping with humor and unexpected whims.  Most people actually go to their page for pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding tips and end up buying their zero toxin, organic products as a secondary thought.

She is dedicated and puts 150% into everything she does and i’m proud to say i’ve been able to watch her from the beginning and so excited to see where she is going to take it!  Her inspiration for the jewelry comes from her travels around the world and initially was inspired by her very own destination wedding in which she gifted her bridesmaids with the jewelry we wore on her special day. (She made each piece)  Go Red-I!

The bros continue to communicate directly to the fans through facebook and email, bouncing ideas off their VIPs and even taking design suggestions. Currently they are offering a limited chance for fans to design their own strap, all which will be made, with the opportunity of some designs becoming official Zox Straps and their creators getting credit on the site. find them at http://www.facebook.com/ZoxStraps and be on the look out, as there have been a few celebrities sighted wearing these collectible straps.

  • Paula Cooper

    Monument Wealth Management
    Facebook Page:   http://www.facebook.com/MonumentWealthManagement
    Monument Wealth Management has the best Facebook page, because of the following reasons:
    1.  They post 2 weekly blogs from the the partners of the firm, who are highly regarded in the industry.  For example, U.S. News and World Report solicits a weekly article from them about the financial industry.  So this is why I like planning with them, because I know I can trust their financial expertise.
    2.  I really like the YouTube videos and pictures they post, because it gives me a warm personal feeling and connection with people I can trust to provide the best financial information.
    3.  They consistently post daily, so I always know I have some good information to look forward to reading.
    4.  I like that they are so advanced in using up to date social media, so I can keep highly informed in any way I choose.  (Most financial firms do not use multiple forms of social media as well as they do.
    5.  My face to face experience with all the partners has really impressed me.  They have high integrity and really care about their clients.  They are dedicated to the highest level of responsiveness and customer service, like I’ve never experienced before.  They let me do the talking about my goals and needs, and then develop a personal customized plan that assures me of short my short and long term  financial goals.
