Social Page Evaluator – Check your Facebook FanPage’s Value

| May 13, 2010 More



Have you every pondered how much your Brand’s Facebook’s Fan Page would be worth? Probably Yes. Recently a company called Virtue, a social media management company has released a tool which will let you know that worth of your Brand or Company’s Facebook Page. Dubbed the Social Page Evaluator, it is designed to help you get a better understanding of a Facebook Page’s value.

Just submit the URL of you Facebook Page and it will come up with a calculated price based on a number of factors like the number of fans, number of daily posts, number of interactions etc.  Even though the calculated price given by this tool may not be totally true but still the tool is quite cool. The algorithm for calculation is based on a formula to calculate the relative value of Facebook Fans of big brands which was released just last month by this social media management company, Virtue.

The base rate of Earned Media Value (or CPM in more traditional terms) is $5, but this can be adjusted to a higher or lower value depending on the brand in question.

Social Page Estimator

After entering your fanpage URL in the Social Page Evaluator tool, you will be shown a page same as above. This page shows the current value and the potential value of your fan page in a bar graph. It also provides you the factors that have been used to determine your page’s value. The factors include posts, number of fans, Interaction and earned media value. It also provides you in the right side of the page, some recommendations that you can follow to increase your fan page value .

You can also compare your fan page’s value with other brands. I tried to compare Netchunks’ fan page with that of Shoutmeloud, one of the leading blog in India. See the result yourselves below ;)

See how puny Netchunks looks. Seems I have to do a lot of Social Media Optimization (S.M.O).

Another good feature that this tool includes is the Fan-tasize. This feature will allow you to manipulate other features like number of posts per day, engagement level and Fan count to see how that affects the valuation.

Fan-tasize

So it shows that if I post 6 posts a day, have a good amount of interactions with fans and have atleast 500 fans, my fan page’s value would be $16,200. I should start SMO right now it seems.

This tool is not accurate but is a good way to get and idea of the factors which impact a Facebook page’s valuation.

So did you check out this Social Page Evaluator tool. If you did what value did you get? Do comment below to share with us your experience.

      Well Shabnam I think you should build a fan page. It does bring some amount of traffic, and by the way thanks. But my page is nowhere when it comes in comparision to big sites. ;)

    Well it’s apparent we can sell just about anything online now a days. I’ll pass I don’t really think it’s important to know. Perhaps it’s more or less fun as opposed to something to take serious.

    Still interesting to take note of what we can sell in today’s economy.

      You are right Brian, This tool is not something to be taken seriously. It is just to be taken as a source of fun and information as to what can make our fan page better. What factors affect it and how to make the best use of a Facebook fan page. And about the selling online thing, Yes you are right….Internet is just a huge marketplace where everything sells
