Milwaukee's own AJ Bombers featured in Wall Street Journal

Joe Sorge is no rookie when it comes to social media campaigns. Karen Louws creative use of the beach chairs (she tagged her photo on Facebook in July, 2009 and was selected as the winner) in front of Bombers won her free burgers for a year.

Joe Sorge, co-owner of Milwaukee’s own AJ Bombers was featured  in an Wall Street Journal article today.

The piece was about how some small  businesses are experimenting with new Web-marketing services that integrate social media.

Below is a excerpt  from the article written by Sarah E. Needleman:

AJ Bombers, a burger joint in Milwaukee, joined up with FourSquare last summer by promising a free burger and fries to anyone who dethroned its “mayor”—a title FourSquare bestows upon the person who “checks in” to an establishment the most via the free mobile application.

The restaurant also ran a promotion where customers could get a free cookie by posting a recommendation to their FourSquare profiles of a menu item or something to do while they’re at the eatery, such as play a board game.

AJ co-owner Joe Sorge says sales of menu items promoted on FourSquare have risen roughly 30% since the restaurant began using the service.

Mr. Sorge and his wife, Angie, also co-own three other businesses that make up Strategic Venues & Concepts Ltd., which posted combined revenues of around $5 million last year, he says.
