Facebook Advertising Strategy

  1. Deploy a strategic re-engagement campaign to activate existing fans and increase organic reach
  2. Leverage lookalike audience functionality to find and connect with new highly targeted fans
  3. Use transaction-based direct response invitations to create meaningful connections between your fans and your brand beyond social.
  • Social Properties are often launched and then abandoned due to things like lack of staff and/or lack of focus
  • Increase staff and strategy
  • Constantly engage with fans
  • Create Social Media community events
  • Gain a deep knowledge of competitors
  • Audience Re-engagement
  • Audience Growth
  • Direct to Product (invitation) campaigns

Proven Posts

  • Use posts that have proven to get engagement from fans
  • Target existing current page likes first
  • Gain Organic Traction
  • Very cost effective first campaign to gain insight into your fans
  • Also getting exposure to new fans
  • Continue to create new content at the same time

Create a Lookalike & Custom Audiences

  • Conversion Pixel – place on landing page and Facebook will create an audience that most closely matches the users that have fired the conversion pixel
  • Upload your own email lists segmented by purchases
  • Audience Growth continues with extremely targeted “likes”

Direct Response/Commerce to Create More Meaningful Connections

Test image, targeting, headline, copy

Real-time Brand Management

It takes only one unhappy customer to create a social media crisis

Example:  Play-doh Extruder Tool – waited too long to respond, they did not monitor social media to combat the negative responses.

Should have created a response as soon as they knew it would be a problem, drafted potential scenario responses, get ahead of the problem

Good example: Chevy spokesman is quoted as saying “Technology and stuff”, instead of ignoring it they jumped on the band wagon with a sense of humor and created an entire campaign around it.

The Social Media Process

  • Schedule for monitoring and responding and have a back up
  • Social media account access should be available to others to pick up if someone is out
  • Who is responsible for monitoring and how often
  • Company expectations for social media should be clearly spelled out
  • Have aligned marketing/social strategy
  • Marketing Team works in conjunction with Social
  • POC responsible for ensuring marketing objectives are aligned

Reputation Monitoring and Responses

  • Consistent messaging – support responses should match across platforms
  • Website FAQs and online answers should be consistent
  • Social and customer service teams need to know what is on the website
  • Inconsistent answers are a negative customer experience

Customer Service

  • Have a response strategy for positive response and negative feedback both
  • Escalation procedure with POC name and contact information
  • Ignored feedback (positive or negative) can escalate quickly

Monitoring and Management tools

  • Notifications via RSS
  • Email alerts
  • Hootsuite, Sprout Social, Buffer
  • Make sure account alerts are being emailed to a social media account that is being monitored

Content Sources

  • Pre-approved content to share on socials
  • 3rd party websites approved for posting on social media
  • Keyword searches to identify content of  social sharing
  • Content Sites – Alltop, Forbes, Harvard Biz Review
  • Content Tools – Klout, Hootsuite, Postplanner, Feedly

To make money with Social you must integrate!

Sell Internet Wide with Psychographics

  • Psychographics is the part of us that makes us who we are and what we have to target to get people to buy what we are selling
  • These are all tracked on the internet to target ads, etc.
  • Building tight personas – “root” the persona (ie: foodies)
  • Active targeting intent – dining out with, traveling with, etc.
  • Financial qualification – behaviors, job title, etc.
  • Some personas may have dual personas – veterans, mortgage, previously employed by the US military
  • Specificity vs. Scale – start by over qualifying initially then you can expand from there
  • Advise targeting with search – if you are marketing to people that use theme parks then go search theme parks
  • External Traffic Driving Unit -Drive people back to the blog posts or back to an active page of your website

Scalable Psychographic Traffic

  • Re-target filters
  • Attributable conversion
  • Real links from good authority sites
  • Social signals rom strong users
  • Focused likes, follow shares

New expectations for social marketers

  • Team created, owned-audience cookie pools for performance marketers to exploit
  • Filtered re-targeting from social cookie pools
  • Owned audiences are brand assets
  • Curate audiences
  • Use remarketing to target people that have visited your site
  • Understanding how to filter following is a prerequisite for modern marketers
