UFC 127 | Facebook results good, reasons for social media marketing

The growth of social networks seems to be unstoppable, well at least for some of those networks. The Social Network movie opened people’s eyes to the ‘Facebook’ story, even if it may not be an exact recount on what happened. In 2011 it will be more important for companies to use social media for promoting their brands than any year before.

If you’ve been to a social media event – like Social Media World Forum – then you will already know a little about what brands are doing with social media, and this ranges from Coca-Cola to UFC.


Last night saw UFC 127 take place, and the results for their Facebook uptake is pretty impressive, at the time of writing we are seeing 4,830,188 fans of their Facebook page. UFC are promoting their Facebook page by offering free viewing of certain fights, all you have to do is ‘Like’ their page.

UFC 127: Facebook results good, reasons for social media marketing

UFC President Dana White has been promoting the social media idea, and we’ve seen him explain that Facebook and UFC are here to stay in the past, which is great for international viewers. China’s Zhang opened up the UFC 127 fights on Facebook, and this ended in a win, which also highlights a reason for UFC to enter social media marketing in this way. China has a strong martial arts background, and is an untapped MMA market, this may be partly the reason Zhang’s fight was made available on Facebook.

There are a number of reasons that UFC will want to use Facebook, and other social media marketing. Top of the list would be fan engagement, UFC will be able to connect with fans and they get to talk back to UFC, although this can have management problems too. Another reason would be brand credibility, its good to see UFC moving with the times and connecting via popular social networks like Facebook.

Facebook is definitely considered as an appealing platform for internet marketing specialists and online advertisers. It is considered to be as one of the best places to advertise online along with Google AdWords, Yahoo Search Marketing, and MSN Adcenter(Bing) PPC advertising.

If you look at it at a wider perspective, there are various social media platforms, aside from Facebook that one can market from. But a combination of these platforms can do wonders.
