  2. 2. WHAT IS CONVERSIFY? Conversify is a global social media agency. We develop and execute social media strategies and tactics to help reach your target audience. Additionally, we help you achieve your business and marketing objectives by listening, assessing, stimulating and measuring conversations online in the world of social media.
  3. 3. The entire cycle is critical, but Conversify can address any of these phases discreetly. FOUR-PHASED PROCESS FOR SOCIAL MEDIA SUCCESS
  4. 4. Social Media starts with listening to your audience. We conduct TOPICAL RESEARCH to determine what people are saying about your brand. We can provide an EXISTING ASSETS AUDIT to determine effectiveness and analyze what your COMPETITORS are doing in social media. RESEARCH PHASE
  5. 5. We work with you to evolve your BRAND PERSONALITY to the unique requirements of social media and develop a CONVERSATION GUIDE that outlines conversations that you can start or join online. These conversations are the crux of social media, increasing brand engagement and accomplishing your objectives. We also provide tactical recommendations to execute the strategy developed in our SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING PLAN [ SMMP ]. STRATEGY PHASE
  6. 6. The Marine Conservation Alliance’s [MCA] brand was very scientific and not approachable enough for a community. Therefore, we encouraged them to think of their brand as a wise grandfatherly type who knew a lot about the science of fisheries management and could help you understand it, too. MCA agreed that this fit their corporate brand personality and has the approachability that social media required. BRAND PERSONALITY STRATEGY PHASE – Example 1
  7. 7. <ul><li>After a year of running the Wine Sisterhood, we did an analysis of our Fans & Followers and the messaging they responded to. The analysis proved the “Sisters” are all about having fun, finding a social group and feeling cultured. We honed the previous year’s messaging to six topics. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Food & Wine: #FoodieFriday, pairings, restaurants, news and recipes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Moms & Family: #MommyMonday, mommy blogs, stress relief </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Creative types: Ask for opinions, wine diaries </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Social gals: special event ideas, hosting tips, party games/activities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Travel (reading, not doing): shopping, how to find good hotels/restaurants, wine country </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Entertainment: pop culture that involves or includes wine/food </li></ul></ul>CONVERSATION GUIDE STRATEGY PHASE – Example 2

  9. 9. How hard can building a Facebook Page be? Plenty. Social Media tools appear to be easy but in reality there are land mines.

DEVELOPMENT PHASE
  10. 10. Much like a visual brand style guide with rules about logo use, color palette or font style, our SM Brand Style Guide articulates how a client should engage in Social Media. For instance, Rainbow Rewards’ target audience is white, affluent, well educated women. Apple Bottoms by Nelly Fragrance’s audience is ethnic, high school educated and working class. The Social Media Style Guides for each brand couldn’t be more different. On the next page we provide a simplified example of some guidelines for these two different SM Brand Style Guides.
