  • Based on secondary research, we developed this model to explain behavioral intentions.
  • In order to validate the proposed model we developed these hypothesis.
  • Based on secondary research, we developed this model to explain behavioral intentions.
  • Based on secondary research, we developed this model to explain behavioral intentions.
  • So we see that the medium, as opposed to traditional media is driven by the target and not the sender. Having done that, we tried to find what are the underlying factors behind popular social media campaign. Through secondary research, we studied some popular campaigns and were able to filter down to 16 factors that were a common denominator in some way or the other in them.

    However, we further tried to figure out which factors were more important through primary research done with some social media experts which led us to 8 essential factors
  • This is done so that followers get a peak into all platforms by creating a hub for all company related information at one page, mostly Facebook. This directs traffic to all platforms on which you are present. Zappos, Dell, Best Buy, Southwest airlines

  • Spam is a strict no-no. people follow companies that involve rather than the ones that bombard followers with information on how good their products are.
    Guy Kawasaki, popular social media guru, started auto tweeting with the help of a robot for his new initiative: Garage ventures. This was not taken well by people who unfollowed him as a result of this.
  • it is also very important for companies to first figure out what their TG is talking, so as to know their need. Therefore, tracking (or listening) to what the followers say is very important before designing the social media offering

    For Customer Involvement
    Customers share ideas.
    See, discuss , vote and check results
    Make users feel they are part of decision making. Increased loyalty to company.
    Starbucks, Mountain Dew are campaigns where companies actually ask for ideas and also show consumers the level to which the idea has been implemented
  • it is very important to ensure that a company’s responses are not auto generated, but are sustained by interaction.
    Gift Coupons/ discounts
    Give as many discounts coupons as possible in given time.
    Promote group buying.
    GAP, Zappos
  • Not only do these actions help in attracting people, but continuous innovations in the campaigns keep people hooked onto the campaigns. It would not help if people like a campaign, spend some time and never return back
    Real Life Simulation:
    Create platform for audience to experience what they can’t in real life.

    Entice non users/ followers to go for your product /service.
    Generate rapid word of mouth
    The Dark Knight Campaign, Sacrifice 10 friends campaign, second life
  • The company has to make sure that the brand positioning is intact, even though the medium is strikingly different. Therefore, it would help if the company uses the same promotional techniques in both offline and online space so as to prevent a disconnect. Relevant applications which intrigue customers therefore help.
  • One of the biggest challenges of social media campaigns is to keep people involved for a longer duration. People need to keep on coming back which would help if companies involve them
  • blogging is one thing that is extremely important. However, it is not for everyone. FMCG or fashion apparel companies, for example would not find blogging useful in their social media initiatives.
