Let's see how GoPro made it possible to increase the traffic to they e-commerce website GoPro.com using Facebook.

First give you time to watch what you can do with the latest GoPro camera Hero3:



The idea of the GoPro Facebook page was to give the film producers a place where they can share videos and photos every day with the audience. As Andie Woodman, Social Marketing Manager of GoPro says: "GoPro is the fastest growing camera company in the world. And we think that what we do on Facebook has been an integral part of that." The company started to post photos and videos from the moments of real people with a "normal" life: mountain biker, captures from air plain, deep water divers, sky divers etc.

Every day a new ad was created to share the best captured content. With this plan GoPro have over 9% more traffic to the official sales website GoPro.com and the Facebook site is now the #1 photo sharing site for GoPro.
