App This, App That...Why Do I Need Apps?

Has your business explored the world of adding apps to your Facebook Page yet? If not, you might be missing out on some great marketing exposure as well as customer engagement! At Big Red Printing, we currently have 2 custom apps added to our website, one where we post this newsletter and the other where we post our monthly coupon.  

The app portion of your Facebook Page is great real estate to engage your customers, whether it is with coupons, newsletters, email sign-ups, etc. Facebook pages allow you to use up to 12 apps at one time! Some of the 12 apps that you are allowed are “mandatory” such as Photos, Likes, Events and Maps.

There are millions, well maybe that is a bit of an exaggeration, of apps out there, but I am going to explore a few of my favorites. (If you want to see what they look like in action, visit our Facebook page as we utilize them on our page:

App Bistro—
This is not an app, but it is my go to destination to discover new apps. App Bistro is full of suggested apps for many different categories. They will even email you weekly to tell you what apps they think you might be interested in based on your favorites.

Issuu-—issuu.comIssuu is an app that lets you publish and share your publications for free and embed them on websites, blogs, and social networks. This is a great place to store PDF documents and then use the code that issuu creates to embed on your Facebook Page. We use the Issuu app to post this newsletter on our page. 

Woobox is an awesome app that lets you create a wide variety of interactive things to add to your website such as: coupons, sweepstakes, polls, custom facebook tabs, photo contests, instant win games, Pinterest tabs, and Twitter tabs.


  1. For promoting any business first of all you need to find the best platforms that can help you reach target audience in less time. When it comes to social media, FB is one of the best websites for my tour and travel business so I have hired the facebook ads management service. The service is really helpful to gain maximum number of leads every day.
