Okay, so you're into social media, Facebook specifically. You've got a brand to promote, a small business to tend to. Since we all know that social media is one way to go to build a brand, obtain more followers, promote e-commerce, distribute content, the whole nine yards, how about dressing up your Facebook page to engage your fans and make your marketing campaigns more impactful?

Of course, you relent without even batting an eyelash. That's got to be the most brilliant idea you've heard all day. And then you remember, you don't know a thing about codes, let alone a line of codes.

North Social just might be the very thing you need. A company that provides a platform of applications to make your Facebook page sizzle and dazzle, North Social's coolest feature is the fact that every app in its "application buffet" is template-driven and includes a simple do-it-yourself content management system. You get to upload images, text an d links to create promotional campaigns and brand messages without having to worry about writing codes.

Eighteen in all, apps in North Social's "app buffet" range from apps that pimp up your Welcome page, launch a sweepstakes within minutes, the Deal Share app to unlock group discounts, Fan Offer for Timeline that converts visitors to fans through coupon rewards or invitation to events, and a whole lot more. And then there's North Contact, a CRM extension for North Social's apps that can be embedded for capturing users' names, e-mails and other information. This is especially useful for creating lists, auto-responders and outbound e-mails.

North Social's pricing depends on the number of fans you have. One account unlocks all apps, and the starter package, with a fan limit of 1,000, is at $19.99 per month. If you just want to try it out and see for yourself if there's any truth to everything you've read and heard, North Social offers a 14-day free trial. If you think it isn't for you, you can cancel anytime - no long-term contract to worry about.
