A doge is an elected chief of state lordship, the ruler of the Republic in many of the Italian city states during the medieval and renaissance periods, in the Italian "crowned republics".
The word is from a Venetian word that descends from the Latin dux (as do the English duke and the standard Italian duce and duca), meaning "leader", especially in a military context. The wife of a doge is styled a dogaressa. 
Huge news came out a couple of weeks ago. Facebook announced that they are now charging businesses to run Facebook Offers.
|Metric||With Facebook Offer||Without Facebook Offer|
|Reach||193% of fan base||26% of fan base|
|Engagement||4% of fan base||1.25% of fan base|
By using Facebook Offers, TSS clients reached nearly 800% of the people who did not use Offers. The final exposure was nearly twice the size of the fan base of the business. Why does this work? Facebook Offers are exposed to “friends of friends.” Because of this, we capture impressions from many more people than otherwise.
For our relatively small fan networks Facebook charges about $5 per Facebook Offer. The ROI is rather obvious… if capturing a single new client is worth hundreds or thousands of dollars per year, then the advertising charge from Facebook is a drop in the bucket.
If you’re not already a client, contact us and we’ll let you know how we can help you grow YOUR business.
