Beef checkoff Facebook promotion engages consumers

The checkoff's "Beef. It's What's For Dinner." Facebook page recently surpassed the "halfway to a million" mark when it comes to fans of the page. And the effort to engage consumers in conversations about beef is paying off: fans aren't just reading a post, but giving it a thumbs up, leaving comments and forwarding to their Facebook networks. What's more, they are having conversations about beef on the page, what to have for dinner and upcoming celebrations.

During key grilling season holidays including Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day, the checkoff promoted the "Beef. It's What's For Dinner." Facebook page through advertising targeting consumers who enjoy beef. The beef story is told through beautiful beef imagery and key messaging to engage fans in conversations to keep beef top-of-mind.

"We continue to ask for feedback from consumers such as 'what are some of their favorite memories where beef was served' and 'what is their favorite grilling moment from the past couple of months'," says Joyce Bupp, chair of the checkoff's public relations subcommittee and dairy producer from Seven Valleys, Pa.
