A Social Media campaign is really hard to manage and require a lot of time, including weekends and bank holidays. That is why most of the companies choose hiring a Community Manager or a Social Media Agency, and spend their time on the business itself
Similar campaigns around the World have worked very successfully. It is proved Social Media drives sales and eventually impacts on R.O.I. Please, have the budget with you while explaining, as artwork me will be able to choose what activity to develop and what doesn’t, depending on the budget they want to plan for Social Media. *** IMPORTANT: The more promotions and activities, the more chances to bigger success
**** IMPORTANT: The secret of Social Media is that it’s not about you, your product or your story. It’s about creating value for the communities that happen to include you. If you want to make a positive impact, forget about what you can get from Social Media and start thinking about what you can contribute. The more value you create for the community, the more value they’ll create for you.
Make the website social is very important for success. That means we’ll have to add all ways to access from the website to all platforms.Email Newsletters are the most traditional way to promote actions in Social Media, although this must be done taking into account we are not sending through spam. Emails will only contain the information about Artwork.me new social activity, as long as it’s relevant for existing customers. Pay Per Click Facebook Ads: As not many people know about this ad system, I’ll get ready an Ad strategy once Artwork.me agree the whole strategy. You can see those ads up on the right on your personal profile. Ads are designed to reach a real huge amount of people, specially because of the “your… friend liked this” that is incorporated at the bottom of the ad. Price is quite low as you get a 40% discount if linking to your Facebook Fan Page (between 0.10 and 0.20 $ per click) and Artwork.me will be able to set a maximum budget a day (£5, for example). My advice is keeping it at least for 4 months.We’ll finally try to agree 2 or 3 guest posts on the best and most influencers photo / art blogs. Please, take into account this is a paid advertising. Profits from this action can be really huge.
“KI” means “Key Influencer”: +5000 unique visitors (UK), +500 fans on Facebook, +100 followers on TwitterPlease, notice that Artwork.me won’t have any control over bloggers, that means we have to put much more attention on a daily relationship with them.
Once we know who our target is and have well defined our content, then will launch the campaign, starting with Twitter and Instagram. Promotions will follow the creation – through Emailed Newsletters + Socializing Artwork me websites. After two months we’ll be ready to launch Facebook, once we have a few followers on the other two Social Networks. Promotions will follow - Emailed newsletter + Socializing own website + among platforms + Paid guest posts on top blogs + Starting Facebook PPC adsBy the fourth month of the campaign, we’ll organize the Event for Bloggers: “Live Art”. Previously, the route must have been chosen and owner must be ready for what bloggers will probably ask. Promotions will follow - Socializing own website + among platforms Along the whole campaign, we’ll be dealing with better bloggers one product review per month, to be RT and shared on Facebook. That will give Artwork.me much more public exposure.
