Bell bajao social media analysis

  1. 1. Bell Bajao Social Media: Review & Analysis <br />Taking stock of where we are and how to move forward<br />Date: 28th Apr 2010<br />By Sanjukta Basu, Social media consultant.<br />Follow on Twitter @sanjukta<br />Personal Blog - http://sanjukta.wordpress.com<br />
  2. 2. There are two parts to this presentation<br />Part I – Social Media Marketing Strategy with ___- Take stock and plan next steps: (Based upon contract signed by Breakthrough and _____)<br />Slides 4 to 16 <br />Part II – Bell Bajao site traffic analysis, Market study, Comparison with successful Social Media campaign, Big questions going ahead.<br />Slides 18 to 23<br />
  3. 3. PART I<br />
  4. 4. Twitter<br />Cl.1 of the contract – Twitter marketing<br /><ul><li>Tool to be set up for collaborative tweeting as a team
  5. 5. Twitter home page to be redesigned as per the BellBajao site
  6. 6. Twitter followers to be added (no bots and any user who don’t follow back will be deleted) – this will be a regular task and we can only think of numbers like 5,000 followers in one month – we don’t have a limitation of adding larger numbers but we risk being banned on twitter if it perceives the account as spam at the same time, if the team engages in one-on-one conversation and regular tweets then the account looks human and we can add more followers (say like 10,000 in the first month) – keeping in mind the limitation of adding users based on certain keywords, in India only, no robots, no non-active users; I think 10,000 will be a great achievement and will prove beneficial
  7. 7. CoTweet was done
  8. 8. Home page was redesigned </li></ul>Current follower count 1548<br />Following count – 1882<br />An increase of approximately 400 followers since March’10<br />
  9. 9.
  10. 10. How much we achieved? On an average 13 followers per day over the last 3 months<br />Twitter<br />Few basic questions:<br />Q. By social media market standards, Is this a good progress? Need research articles in support.<br />Q. Is there any record kept of how many we followed each day / month, how many followed us back and how many we unfollowed.<br />Q. Any record on how many followers we got directly, ie people who followed us first?<br />Q. Any record on in how many days are we unfollowing them?<br />Q. 10,000 by end of March referred to follower count or followee count?<br />Q. What is the basis of filtering and un-following?<br />
  11. 11. An impromptu look at the Bell Bajao twitter time line at the time of creating this presentation shows that we are following all kinds of profiles, including tech, non tech, marketing, finance, bots, non bots, national, international. <br />In a meeting with _____ it was decided that we will only follow India based tweets and to begin with it was advised to follow all profiles which the Indian celebrities follow, like ShashiTharoor, SRK etc – Was this done? An update is needed.<br />Q. On what other basis are we following people? Can the back end of this twitter tool be shared so that we can monitor the basis?<br />Filtering and un-following:<br />If ‘follow back’ is the only basis then the concern is that:<br />- Bots sometime auto follow back <br />- Even if the profile is not a bot, but say an Insurance company or credit card company from Africa and they follow us back, we still don’t want to follow such profile.<br />Q. So then how do we check these and filter them out?<br />
  12. 12. Follower followee balance and relationship<br /><ul><li> Important to have balance between how many we follow and who follows us.
  13. 13. To keep in mind the profiles of people we follow. We don’t want to follow irrelevant tweeps.
  14. 14. As can be seen in the pic a genuine conversation (@Chandnim) gets buried in the timeline of irrelevant tweeps.
  15. 15. We have been engaged in one on one conversation at regular basis but find it difficult to pitch in other people’s conversation. </li></ul>Big Q for Breakthrough:<br /> What is more important Numbers or quality followers?<br />
  16. 16. NEXT STEPS<br />How to increase twitter follower count?<br />A more aggressive campaign is required, merely hoping if we follow others they will follow us back will not work. <br />To do list: <br />Need to unfollow all international, marketing bots at the earliest so that timeline is clean. <br />Need to think of at least 2-3 new Twitter campaigns and a marketing strategy. <br />Examples of twitter campaigns:<br /><ul><li>Twitter based contest with lucrative prizes
  17. 17. Twitter virals
  18. 18. Create Hashtag push people to use it again offer prizes
  19. 19. To encourage some of our celebrity friends who are on twitter to ask their followers to follow Bell bajao. We have Boman, Shantanu, on twitter.</li></li></ul><li>RETROSPECT<br />What worked? What didn’t?<br />Q. What kind of conversation has got us most RTs and @replies so far? <br />Answer is simple, whenever the content is interesting:<br /><ul><li> The post related to Hijab – once the link was posted there was a lot of conversation around it. Clearly this was not because of any marketing strategy but because of the sensitivity of the issue.
  20. 20. Two times when we did live tweets – Anganwadi event and Mangalore video van
  21. 21. When we asked a question rather than gave information (Abu Dhabi story)</li></li></ul><li>We need more ideas: Beg, Borrow, Steal, Create<br />Some relevant articles: <br />This links lists 6 successful twitter campaigns – we will see these were dedicated campaigns with micro-sites and other applications. <br />http://engagingsocialmedia.com/advertising/twitter-campaigns/<br />Another campaign that had the backing of actor Ashton Kutcher behind its success.<br />http://social-media-optimization.com/2009/12/examples-of-successful-twitter-and-facebook-campaigns/<br />This article talks about how many followers does an organization actually need? <br />http://social-media-optimization.com/2010/04/the-sweet-spot-in-twitter-followers/<br />Tips for a successful twitter campaign<br />http://www.optify.net/social-media/7-keys-to-a-successful-twitter-campaign/<br />
  22. 22. Cl.2 of the contract – Video Uploads<br />Video provided by BellBajao will be uploaded on multiple video sharing sites (major ones only – up to 40) along with description and keywords and we will also provide a statistical report at the end of the month – keeping in mind the time limitation, we will add a total of max 30 videos – your team has to support one-on-one conversations on youtube – we will also promote the video channel (youtube) or individual videos on the site through Facebook marketing campaign ($100 value)<br />Yet to start<br />We need a clear plan on this as we have many videos with us now ready<br /><ul><li>How many sites?
  23. 23. How many videos
  24. 24. A list of the sites?
  25. 25. What is the methodology of upload? Manuaul upload one by one or by the use of certain application where simultaneous upload will take place?</li></li></ul><li>Cl.3 of the contract - Comments<br />3. Commenting on other major blogs – we will help create a RSS reader for various topics which relate to domestic violence or at least have a similar targeted audience – we will pick up each such group of blogs on a daily basis and comment on them and the team has to support this as gradually they need to do this on their own – these comments will bring users (particularly blog owners) back to the site and will act as link backs which is helpful for SEO – target of 200 comments in the month of<br />March.<br />Comments were made by _____ in approximately 35-40 blogs as per information obtained from Mayank via email dt. 28-Apr-10<br />In Addition SEO has been done by ____ on over 200 blog posts<br />
  26. 26. Cl.4 of the contract – Guest Articles<br />Publishing guest articles on other major blogs – the team has to provide us with highly researched articles on domestic violence which we will get published on some major blogs which are around the similar related topics – thus we will drive the traffic of that site towards our site – target of releasing 8 such articles in the month of March. <br />This one is pending because of lack of deliverable from Breakthrough side. <br />We have at our end published one article on Jaago Re site.<br />
  27. 27. Cl.5 of the contract<br />Have we used this? <br />How are we going to use it? Can it be used during Mumbai Video Van?<br />Photo and Blogger competition will be active – apart from that we intend to create more competitions like creating an ad film on domestic violence – we will talk help of other prominent bloggers to promote all these competitions by getting them to write an article on their blogs – then we will also do facebook marketing campaigns on this ($100 value)<br />Cl.5 of the contract<br />Target of adding more rss and newsletter subscribers – we will make subscribing more intuitive and Impulsive<br />Yet to start<br />Cl.5 of the contract<br />Take a Pledge badge has to be created and we will get numerous blogs (in India) to display the badge on their site.<br />
  28. 28. Questions<br />Any other strategy to increase twitter count? – Ideas for Twitter campaign<br />We want to start the $200 Facebook ad campaign – Can we at least 50% of it during the Mumbai Video Van (4th May to 18th May)? <br />The Mumbai Video van – What additional activities can we do twitter / blog contests – any other suggestions?<br />Live tweeting of Video Van with hashtag #videovan need to be hosted on our site and some contest around that need to be set up.<br />We have the champion voices ready to be uploaded on multiple sites, when will this process begin?<br />
