Are you ready to get your mocialmojo on?Are you ready to rock?OK, this morning I’m going to talk mocial – using mobile, social and local initiatives to grow your email database.Now before I begin, I have a very special treat. So special you may want to get your cameras and video cameras out.
Yes, I was able to get the mocials to stop by a sing one of their biggest hits…
So I think except the youngest of you in the audience should know the words to their big hit – A mocial Day’s Night – so I want to hear everyone joining in with the band…
The first thing to note though..the website is not the centre of your universe.For the last 10 years we invested in our websites.. Ultimately website is still important but it is not likely to be the first stop online.. But if people are congregating elsewhere Be it fb/twitter specialised sites etcWe need to ..
In summary, we have an incredible convergence of growth in mobile device usage, change in consumer preferences, and those preferences being reflected in the incredible usage of location-based social networks like Foursquare and Facebook. This unique convergence presents a special opportunity for marketers to reach customers when it matters most to them, through their mobile device and based on where they are.
Why do check-ins matter? They matter because they’re quickly becoming mainstream behavior. Foursquare is adding approximately 1 million users a month and is on track to become the next mainstream social network.
Understanding the role social and email play and how they work together for your marketing strategy is critical. Email is the best means for me to speak to you as an individual
Social Sign-In is a very exciting new feature that enables your site visitors to register or opt-in to your database simply by clicking on their Social Network logo of their choice.So rather than filling out detailed forms – the consumer simply clicks and a variety of data from that network is then shared with you the marketer. Research studies have shown that 66 percent of consumers prefer social sign in over traditional registration forms. Secondly and more importantly, on average companies using social sign-ins are seeing from 10-50% higher form completions rates.
Get data from their social profile and use progressive forms to get the rest over time.
Another approach to building your opt-in list is by using SMS or Text to opt-in.Whether at point-of-purchase, at events or on ads – you simply promote an opt-in code and number and consumers provide their email address and are immediately opted in to your email program.
Anther new feature is our iPad Pop-In capability. Like SMS to opt-in, this enables you to collect subscriber data and opt-ins wherever they are – at point-of-sale, at events or throughout your physical location.As an example, one of our museum clients will soon be deploying iPads and Pop-In throughout their museum – allowing museum visitors to opt-in to museum newsletters and information at the point of the consumer’s interest.
At a high level,PlacePunch serves as the connection between location-based social networks like foursquare and your marketing campaigns. As I mentioned, PlacePunch handles all of the technical aspects of a location-based marketing programs and enables you to focus on running your marketing programs.
In order to know when a person has checked-in nearby your locations, PlacePunch requires that participants in your location-based marketing program give us permission to access with their location information from Foursquare and Facebook. At Silverpop, we inherently believe that marketing is most effective when there is a value exchange. Users give you permission to market to them in exchange for valuable content.With PlacePunch, users essentially provide you with access to their location-based check-in profiles so that you can deliver relevant content to them. Here’s how it works.
Check-in contests enable you to run a sweepstakes or scavenger hunt program where customers can get entered to win prizes when they check-in at your locations. This enables you create a program that drives in-store traffic and social-media buzz while avoiding the need to worry about validating offers in-store. Our customers love these programs because they generate significant online buzz and in-store visits. Let’s walk through an example of how this works.
The first step is for participants to register for the program using their Facebook or Foursquare account. This enables them to opt into your terms and conditions for the program.
Once someone has signed up for your campaign, we then forward an email confirmation to that person. This email can contain any type of content that you like.
From there, participants will be entered into your contest by actually checking-in. A check-in is needed to actually trigger the entry into the contest. For example, you might run a program where you say, for every check-in, you’ll be entered to win.
Ok, that’s it for the Silverpop overview – let’s move into the Product Demo session.
