Who would have thought that selling out of wood would actually be something to worry about? Local business West Coast Arborists, Inc. found themselves with that issue after they used Messenger Bots in a Facebook Ad.

Selling Slabs

West Coast Arborists, Inc. (WCA, Inc.) was established in 1972. Today, the family-owned company is providing professional tree maintenance and management services for over 200 municipalities and public agencies throughout the states of California, Arizona, and Nevada. One of the many things that sets this business apart is their mission to preserve the beauty of the wood by creating amazing slabs for purchase.

Massive Reach For a Facebook Post

WCA, Inc. created a Facebook post to spread the word that they had beautiful wood slabs available for purchase at a new location in Ontario, CA. In this post, the business used a Facebook Comment Growth Tool through ManyChat so that people had to comment with the word “SLAB” to get the actual location of the purchase location in Ontario. They then boosted the post using Facebook Ads for $1300. While the hope was to spread the word, the results they got were quite a surprise! They sold out…as in, no slabs left.

Here is a summary of the official stats.

So Much Business It’s Time to Hire

This is super cool! Learning from what works best, WCA, Inc. used the same strategy two days later as Now Hiring post. With the same Facebook Comment Growth Tool strategy, viewers could comment “TEAM” to get more information about job openings for Tree Trimmers and Ground Workers in California and Arizona. The results proved to be better than any hiring campaign that had in the past, which included platforms like Craig’s List and local job posting sites.
