BG launches Facebook page PDF Print E-mail
Written by HGO Staff   

WALKERTON, Ontario (30 May 2012) - Solid wood case good producer BG Furniture has broadened its online presence with the launch of its business page on Facebook, perhaps the world's most popular and most visited social media site.

It can be found at www.facebook.com/bgfurniture.

In a note to his retail customers, Adam Hofmann said he believes by having a Facebook page "we can gain a deeper understanding of the market place. As we foster new connections on Facebook we believe it will help us offer better products, better service."

The company, formerly known as Bogdon & Gross, expects it will finish uploading its entire image library on to the page sometime in the next weeks, believing it will be a useful tool for its retailers' sales and web marketing staff.

"We are also developing a promotion program that will allow us to advertise your BG sales events on Facebook," Hofmann told his network.
