Ignite Social Media was created to help brands manage social media engagement. Social Media Marketing is different that traditional forms of marketing in that messaging “to” a mass audience to get a small amount of response is simply ineffective with social platforms. Ignite community managers become active participants in relevant conversations through creation of premium content and regular audience engagement.
Successful social engagement involves a “Carousel” approach with an easy to use content center (site, blog, aggregator) powered by content creation, syndication, aggregation and measurement for continual optimization. As an audience grows and is engaged, it becomes part of the overall process.
We have two cause marketing clients. Conagra’s Child Hunger Ends Here and Champions for Kids. We work with both organizations to create active audience engagement across social platforms to help engage goals and objectives
A key learning is to have a clear and simple call to action. Let fans know what to to and make it easy for them to do so.
Help fans get started by creating a “recipe’ for them to follow. For Champions for kids, fans can use step by step instructions to engage their church, school, workplace or organization to leverage the power of crowds. Fans are then encouraged to share their stories via social channels to inspire others to get involved.
The core to all social media is great stories. Engaging stories in the form of blog posts, images, even inspiring tweets get people to engage and share.
Content can then be aggregated across various platforms to reach people where they are. From Pinterest to Instagram to Facebook and Tumblr, content aggregation grows Share of Voice in targeted conversations. The ease of sharing of these platforms promotes distribution of content and also drive search results from search engines as well as within platforms which is growing as a form of finding information.
