The Fanzila platform is a full content management system that makes it easy to add blogs, forums, competitions, wikis, videos, photos and other applications directly on Facebook pages. In addition, Fanzila offers page administrators sophisticated business intelligence and advanced analytics not typically available on Facebook. With service offerings for both brands and small businesses, Facebook communities of all sizes can upgrade their pages with the new apps.
Todays launch comes after dozens of successful projects worldwide, with clients including MTV, Viacom, JWT, Y&R and other prominent agencies and brands. One early-adopter, Prashanth Mohanachandran, co-founder, AgencyDigi and former exec director, OgilvyOne and Neo@Ogilvy, said Fanzila has refreshed the way we look at social media. Social apps, cutting edge design possibilities on Facebook pages, seamless integration with other web properties- Fanzila’s non-stop addition of features have won us over a dozen happy clients.
Fanzila apps increase the activity of the page users by offering them participation in forum discussions, blog posts, competitions, wiki editorials and much more, said Asaf Gendler, co-founder and CPO at Fanzila. Our analytics and Social CRM capabilities also offer page admins information that greatly assists marketing efforts and lead generation.
Fanzila recently raised a $1 million Series A round of venture capital financing led by Blumberg Capital. The San Francisco-based, early-stage venture firm joins previous investors Dr. Yossi Vardi, Shlomo Nechama and the Haaretz Newspaper Group.
