We've helped hundreds of advertisers—across all industries—build valuable communities on Facebook and Twitter. Here are a few of our friends.
Building a valuable community is the central first step. Only SocialCode will then help you define its value and extract that value. Our capabilities are rooted in the advanced research of SocialCode Labs, empowering brands with the advertising and intelligence needed to build and engage communities. SocialCode offers an unmatched suite of services that work in concert to create valuable communities primed for downstream engagement.
Whether you're looking to grow a community, reach and engage an audience, or activate users on downstream offers, our advertising services are tailored to meet your brand's marketing objectives. We offer end-to-end ad campaign management, including creative development, advanced optimization through SocialSegements™ and engager targeting, and in-depth analytics. This fully managed solution leverages all available ad types and placements on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
Community managers across all verticals face the same challenge: What should I post when to generate the highest reach and positive engagement from my Facebook community? Message Optics takes the guesswork out of your posting strategy. Know what to post when to drive reach, engagement and earned media.
Really knowing who you are interacting with can shape what you say and inform many other marketing decisions—both online and off. Community Optics tells you what your fans do, what they consume, and how they live. This quantitative market research provides a detailed psychographic profile of your brand's Facebook community, uncovering fans' affinity for other brands, competitors, interests, media properties and more. It also highlights the opportunity for your brand to capture more fans from each.
Anyone can build a community. The key is building a community that then goes on to provide value to the brand by engaging. This consumer technology company partnered with SocialCode to build a fan base that was likely to engage beyond the "like." To do this we studied the downstream behavior of different user groups. By targeting the right creative to the right user segments we were able to grow a valuable community.
Building a large community efficiently requires advanced targeting and optimization tools. This CPG company partnered with SocialCode to grow a large community base quickly. To meet their aggressive fan goal without sacrificing quality, we optimized the campaign using our proprietary SocialSegments™ targeting. SocialSegments mathematically cluster Facebook users into lifestyle segments, revealing shared interests that are not obvious and, therefore, wouldn’t otherwise be targetable.
Using social media for a global product launch requires a systematic approach. For this leading beauty brand, we targeted native-language ads to users in 11 countries maintaining a consistent brand message. Rigorously testing creative, demographics, interests and ad units, we optimized each variable regionally. In addition to delivering highly qualified fans, we provided considerable learning about regional attitudes and behaviors to the client.
Building a community is just the beginning. The ultimate goal is to convert community members into customers and brand evangelists. A leading financial institution partnered with SocialCode to build a highly qualified Facebook community of small business owners. We saw top performing user groups convert on targeted downstream special offers at a rate at least four times that of non-fans.
Knowing what to message to your community and when can significantly increase engagement. A national sports league was interested in understanding just that. SocialCode studied the organization's current posting strategy, revealing that video content generated the most desired downstream actions (comments and shares). Coupled with other insights, we delivered a recommended posting strategy.
