I was telling Greg Sterling about how the new meat market in Pleasanton is killing it on their Facebook Page, which was created by a customer, and on Yelp despite the fact that they don’t have a Google Place Page and the business itself isn’t even participating in any of this.

From Greg’s The Curious Case of Main Street Meat & Fish:

The amazing thing is that these guys have a full-blown social media campaign (and SEO) going without their knowledge, based entirely on their fans’ efforts. Word of mouth indeed.

    Hmm, didn’t know you were “local”, I work off of Bernal!

    I looked at the facebook profile, they have some good likes going on – that definitely helps, plus they have an animoto video from the Pleasanton downtown association (which has 1000+ fans) – and its really active on posting.

    Pretty nice for a few weeks old.
